Sunday Pants is an American animated anthology series created by Craig "Sven" Gordon and Stuart Hill, produced by Spitfire Studios, and aired on Cartoon Network from October 2-30, 2005. The series primarily aired every Sunday night at 9:30 PM, hence the name Sunday Pants. The series only lasted for 11 episodes, while only the first five aired.


After its predecessor, What a Cartoon!, Cartoon Network produced an all-new animated short series consisting of overseas shorts, pilots, college shorts, or even shorts created for the show itself. That show was called Sunday Pants; it first aired on the day of October 2, 2005. The anthology varies on different types of animation, from traditional hand-drawn animation to Flash, or even CGI, similar to shows like MTV's Liquid Television and Nickelodeon's KaBlam!

The show has a similar concept to What a Cartoon!, except that the shorts are 1–3 minutes long and the show is squeezed to be 23 minutes (without commercials). There are animated and live-action intervals in-between shorts. The live-action ones are performed by American band The Slacks, while the animated ones are produced by WeFail.

This is the second Cartoon Network original series to be rated "TV-PG". Despite not airing on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim line-up, it is considered more of a traditional adult's animated comedy than a children's cartoon.

The show lasted for less than a month, with its final airing taking place on October 30, 2005. In January 2006, the show was announced to be returning the month after, but said return never came to fruition and the series was ultimately cancelled. Afterwards, reruns of Bernard and Monstories aired on Cartoon Network's sister channel, Boomerang, as short-form programming in between shows.

In 2015, several cartoon streaming sites released the five out of eleven episodes that were produced on their sites. It is now easy-to-find on the web with a simple Google search.

Cartoon Network didn't acknowldeged the series until 2018, where Periwinkle (the protagonist of the pilot, Periwinkle Around the World) made a cameo in the OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes episode, Crossover Nexus, which marked the very first and so far only time that Sunday Pants was featured in official Cartoon Network media.
