Heartwarming / [adult swim]

  • After years of producing weird Nightmare Fuel heavy shorts to premiere at 4:00 AM, [as] showed "Joe Peras Talks You to Sleep", and it's... actually about comedian Joe Pera calmly telling stories and jokes to help you go to sleep. There's no creepy or off-kilter twist in it at all, with the only real disruption in the calmness of the whole thing is Joe rushing to stop a voicemail recording of an ex-girlfriend breaking up with him. The whole thing could almost qualify as the closest thing the channel has gone to Sweet Dreams Fuel.
    • Later in the year, they aired "Joe Pera Helps You Find the Perfect Christmas Tree". Joe has the same awkward charm he had in the the first special, but the way the special ends is also very heartwarming, where his elementary school choir class ends up surprising him with a gift of the perfect Christmas tree.
  • On early morning September 18th, 2016, Clay Martin Croker, the voice actor of Moltar and Zorak on Space Ghost Coast to Coast (as well as the former's appearances and Swayzak on Toonami) and Dr. Weird on Aqua Teen Hunger Force, passed away. To honor his memory, [adult swim] aired the very first episode of Space Ghost Coast to Coast at 12:30 AM that evening and put almost every episode of Space Ghost Coast to Coast and The Brak Show up for viewing on their website to honor him.
