Cartoon Network unveiled plans for a 25 new shows and many more returning programs targeted at young boys for next fall. Among the highlights announced Wednesday:

NEW

-- Hall of Game, the network's first awards show to honor sports personalities, will feature a full red-carpet presentation also featuring celebrities from movies, music and television. It's scheduled for early 2011.

-- The Looney Tunes Show isa 3-D reimagining of the classic 'toon for the CGI-animation generation. A fully rendered sneak preview of the new Road Runner was slick and sculptural, like the movie Ice Age, but kept the bird's legs a decidedly low-tech blur.

Cartoon Network renews Robot Chicken

-- Scooby-Doo Mystery Incorporated, a similar update of the groovy Hanna-Barbera sleuth series.

-- Tower Prep, a live-action mystery series about a rebellious teen who is forced to enroll in a secret boarding school for kids with supernatural gifts (think X-Men meets Harry Potter).

-- Firebreather, a special movie event that sounds like Teen Wolf, except the half-human high school kid's dad is a dragon, thus giving him the titular very special ability.

-- Generator Rex, a new series from the creator of the successful Ben 10 franchise.

-- The network also announced that it is developing a series of 15-minute blocks of animated shows designed to capture kids' short attention spans.

RETURNING

-- A second season of the breakout hit Destroy Build Destroy — its star, Andrew W.K., performed his hit "Party Hard" at the network's announcement.

-- More episodes of Dude, What Would Happen?kind of like a mini-Mythbusters.

-- A second season of My Dad's a Pro, an NFL-produced documentary series, this time starring 8-year-old Nikko Gonzalez, the son of Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez.
