Discover the history of Adult Swim in this 8 minute documentary

Adult Swim has defined a generation much like MTV did in the 1980s. YouTube user kaptainkristian has created a short documentary which summarizes the birth and subsequent growth of one of the most popular late night television blocks, Cartoon Network's Adult Swim.

If you have fond memories of staying up late and watching Sealab 2021, Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law, or Aqua Teen Hunger Force, then you should take eight minutes to see just how slim of a chance they had when starting Adult Swim.
