Star Wars - Cartoon Network

I saw a preview last night during Adult Swim that the Star Wars cartoons will begin this Friday at 7 pm (CST). They are only 5 mins long. According to my TiVo, looks like they will be a nightly thing starting the following week.

Just a heads up...

Just wait the 12.5 seconds it will take for an episode to show up on the net.

Cartoon Network only showing something once? Wow. Will wonders ever cease?

According to the website, they will also be showing each chapter online, although chapters 11-20 won't be available until Spring of 2004.

They will, when they release the DVD.

Cartoon Network also has the annoying habit of starting their stuff early. Maybe it won't interfere with other programming too much.

It was my understanding that they reair them at midnight (eastern).

Either way, calhoun07 is right. I'm sure we'll see a DVD in the spring, once they air the 2nd batch.

I believe that soon after they premiere on the Cartoon Network they will be available for download on their website.

That means nothing to me. I've found that the cable network schedules vary wildly in the Mountain Time zone. Sometimes they are a couple hours ahead, sometimes a few hours behind. That's why I wanted to know which shows they are sandwiched between, since I doubt these shorts will show up on my DirectTV program guide.

It is listed in my DirecTV guide: Star Wars: Clone Wars

But, you can check here for a day-to-day listing.

Thanks for the info. It looks like the first showing is between "Dexter's Laboratory" and [b]Pokemon the Movie" tomorrow night, and on at the same time for every day thereafter.

This is my number one concern. I've seen shows start as much as 7 minutes early and late. I'll be pissed if they screw with the starting times, and my 5-minute TiVo recording gets commercials instead.

Not officially, but if you keep an eye on the forums over at theforce.net, people usually (briefly) post links to unofficial mirror sites.
