This is a recap page for episodes of Regular Show, a Cartoon Network original series created by J.G. Quintel (who previously did animation work for The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack and Camp Lazlo during Cartoon Network's network-decayed Dork Age) about the Mundane Made Awesome (and sometimes, downright surreal) adventures of two slacker park workers, an art school graduate bluejay named Mordecai and a high school dropout raccoon named Rigby, who work for a no-nonsense bubblegum machine named Benson, a Manchild human lollipop named Pops, an immortal yeti named Skips, and a fat, gross, green humanoid named Mitch "Muscle Man" Sorenstein and his spectral friend, High-Five Ghost.


It's Better Than It Sounds and almost everything makes sense in context.
