Tattle Cartoon! is an upcoming Boomerang animation showcase. Like What a Cartoon!, it was created by Fred Seibert and produced by Cartoon Network Studios for Boomerang, and was the seventh of their cartoon "laboratories". Being the first Cartoon Network Studios series set to air only on Boomerang, it is set to premiere in early 2015.
Creator Fred Seibert ordered thirteen full-length episodes (39 seven-minute shorts) for the show.
Unlike What a Cartoon!, there are various hosts. ASIFA-Hollywood hosted an advance screening of six shorts as well as a question and answer session with the filmmakers at the Cartoon Network Studios in Burbank, California. Two of the shorts will be selected to become television series and one of the shorts will be selected to become a web series. Those shorts will be The Fancy, The Pirates for Hire, and Mike. The Fancy will begin airing as a full-length series on January 15, 2016 on Disney Channel. The Pirates for Hire, under the new name Pirates for Hire, will begin airing on October 10, 2018 on Cartoon Hangover. Mike, under the new name Phibian Mike, will begin airing as a full-length series on October 9, 2015 on Cartoon Network.
