The Cartoon Network will diversify its programming with the premiere of "Adult Swim" on Sunday, September 2. This three-hour late-night block will feature new episodes of Space Ghost Coast to Coast along with such new series as The Brak Show, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, and Sealab 2021 and the Japanese cult favorite Cowboy Bebop. One of the new shows, Harvey Birdman--Attorney at Law, will kick off with a hilariously gay-innuendo-filled episode featuring Birdman (a flying hero turned lawyer) handling a family law case that pits Race Bannon against Dr. Quest for custody of Jonny Quest and Hadji.
