A two to three-hour block on Cartoon Network that has yet to show an adult or mature cartoon.
Although the concept of Adult Swim is a fucking joke, some of the cartoons, such as Sealab and the Oblongs, are well crafted and chock full of humor.

The time when children are not allowed in the pool. This is so adults can have nice calm leisure time in the pool without children running around and performing "cannon balls", which can be rude, and annoying.
I'm so glad it's adult swim time. I don't like swimming with kids.

channel that is worth watching. With advertising that amuses too!

In other words, adult swim rocks!
Stewie is a common sight on adult swim.

So is Leela.

Please see Adult Swim.
I only watch adult swim because everything else is dumb.

A lineup of really good anime and comedy on an otherwise pretty shitty channel, Cartoon Network.
Every Saturday night I wait for Toonami to be over, then I watch Adult Swim.

A Block after 11 on Cartoon Network, mondays thru thursdays, saturdays and sundays. It features more mature cartoons, including Futurama, Family Guy, and more recently, Venture Bros. It also features a wide selection of nearly uncut anime including Cowboy Bebop, Inuyasha, and most recently, Fullmetal Alchamist.
I am going to watch Adult Swim tonight

A show which feels the need to warn viewers of the "mature content" of Family Guy and Futurama, both of which aired prime-time on FOX.
Adult Swim may contain content that parents might not find suitable for children under the age of 14

The layziest, craiziest, most innovative group of potheads that have ever been not fired from telliviesion. Best known for cheeply produced cartoons(i.e. Aqua Teen Hunger Force, 12 oz. Mouse) and have even resorted to rehashing footage of old Hanna- Barbarra cartoons that result in the cheepest laughs on tellivision, both litterally and figuritivly.

They are also known for having the newest episodes of Family Guy right after FOX airs them, and have been known to run every other FOX cartoon in existance, exept The Simpsons. They really hate when you ask for The Simpsons
