The Jumping Ground is an animated science-fiction action-sitcom created by Lee Eisenhower and Conrad Vernon for Cartoon Network. Originally airing on Showtime, the show has become famous for its crude language and dark, surreal humor that satirizes a wide range of topics. Over time, it has developed a quirky, humorous and sometimes controversial style. Characters are designed and animated using different styles and techniques (stylized cel animation, puppetry, realistic CGI, etc.) and put on live-action backgrounds.
The show received generally positive reviews from critics and became one of Cartoon Network's most successful original series. It won a Reuben Award, two Leo Awards and a SOCAN Award, and was also nominated for another four Leo Awards, an Annie Award and two Kids' Choice Awards. Although it was not made in the United States, it has gained mass popularity there and has attracted an audience of 45.8 million households, was broadcast in 130 countries, and proved to be popular among teenagers and adults.
With a 20-year run, 19 seasons, and 287 episodes, The Jumping Ground remains the longest-running original series on both Showtime and Cartoon Network to date (although Cartoon Network's parent, Turner Broadcasting System currently owns the rights to the series), and is also one of the longest-running United States animated series, although it is officially developed jointly between Australia and Canada.
Initially a co-production between Seven Network and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), The ongoing narrative revolves around four kids—PuffPuff Humbert, Lance Patrick, Zowie Hosker, and Rob Broflovski — and their bizarre adventures in and around the fictional town of Pencaster, Ohio, exploring the galaxy and defend against alien threats such as the Goa'uld, Replicators, and the Ori.
The series draws upon Egyptian mythology, Norse mythology, and Arthurian legend. Much like The Simpsons, The Jumping Ground utilizes a very large ensemble cast of recurring characters. Merchandise for The Jumping Ground includes games and toys, and print media. A spin-off series, The Hellucard Show, featuring the minor character Hellucard, aired from September 21, 2009 to May 26, 2014. Another spin-off Troll Patrol, is currently airing since September 21, 2012.
A film based on the series was released on July 15, 2016, and despite receiving mixed reviews, it was an immediate financial success, breaking several records and grossing a worldwide total of $1.2 billion.
