Cartoon Network
is only weeks away from rolling out their new Saturday morning line-up of toons, DC Nation. The block will include new episodes of Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Young Justice, as well as a slew of animated shorts all featuring DC characters. Thanks to the new Nerdist Channel we’ve got our first sneak peak at a short starring Plastic Man,

Voiced by Tom Kenny, who a few years back was part of the Plastic Man series that never happened, Plas will be starring in all new animated shorts. In addition to Plastic Man, there will shorts starring the Doom PatrolTeen Titans, and Batman shorts animated by Aardman Productions. Y’know, the guys behind Wallace and Gromit!!

The one show I’m most excited about in the new DC Nation block is Super Best Friends Forever from Lauren Faust. She’s the ultra cool lady who played part in creating My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Powerpuff Girls, and Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends. Now she’ll be bringing her genius to Supergirl, Batgirl and Wonder Girl! Needless to say, I’m stoked. Thanks to TV Guide we’ve got our first look at the girls,

This bit from the article explains the show,

A humorous tone runs through all the shorts, including S.B.F.F. (short for Super Best Friends Forever), which stars Batgirl, Supergirl and Wonder Girl and “has plenty of action and fighting, but is really much more focused on comedy and laughs and how much fun it is to be a superhero,” says producer Lauren Faust.  ”It’s like taking a teenage experience but putting a superhero spin on it, in one episode, Supergirl and Batgirl try to convince Wonder Girl to sneak out in Wonder Woman’s invisible jet to go for a joyride.”  Guess even supergirls just wanna have fun.

What a great reason to wake up early on Saturday mornings!

DC Nation starts on Cartoon Network March 3rd at 10a (ET/PT).
