Slacker Cats is an animated ABC Family series that premiered on August 13, 2007. It was created using Adobe Flash.
The show was initially marketed as an adult animated but in later advertising and in press kits issued to the media, it was clearly indicated that the show included a more adult tone and themes. The show's 10PM broadcast time further illustrated that its target was an adult audience. It was the fourth adult animated series produced by Disney, the other three being The PJs, which aired on Fox, Clerks: The Animated Series, which aired on ABC, and Clone High, which was a co-production of MTV, Teletoon and Nelvana, and is the only adult animated show from them to not be produced at Touchstone Television, now known as ABC Signature.
Slacker Cats was animated by Film Roman, the same company that animates The Simpsons and King of the Hill and produced by Laika. It features the voice talents of comedians Harland Williams and Sinbad in the lead roles. It was created by Andy Riley and Kevin Cecil, who also served as executive producers along with animation director Seth Kearsley, who designed the characters.
Slacker Cats was canceled on September 17, 2007 after six episodes. A second season premiered on the ABC Family website on January 19, 2009, and was released on iTunes and Xbox Live Marketplace. The second season was numbered as a continuation of the first season, episodes 7 through 12.
