"Dude, What Would Happen has quickly become an audience favorite," said Rob Swartz, vice president original series at Cartoon Network. "We look forward to even more imaginative and hysterical experiments with our fearless 'dudes': CJ, Ali and Jackson."

The series asks such provoking questions as, "Dude, what would happen if you tied 375 helium-filled balloons to a sumo wrestler? Or, if you filled a camper with popcorn kernels and torched it with 3 flame-throwers?" Armed with an insatiable thirst for answers and with unlimited access to anything and everything, CJ Marigo, Ali Sepasyar and Jackson Rogow ask these kinds of questions each week. The sky's the limit for these three!
