Cartoon Net Puts on Sunday Shorts

We don't know whether these are like those blue seersuckers we had to wear to church, but Cartoon net is putting on Sunday Pants, a half-hour collection of animated shorts to air Sunday nights at 9:30.

Each episode will feature a collection of about a dozen cartoons from home and abroad, including traditional and CGI, all around a central theme.

To push the metaphor even further, band The Slacks will "weave each episode together by performing an original song based on that night’s theme."
