Regular Show was an animated show created by J.G. Quintel. Its first episode aired on Cartoon Network on September 6th, 2010, but before that, an 11-minute pilot was aired called "First Day". It was believed that two other pilots were made, one of them being Flash animated, the other using a slightly different animation style and character design.


Two short clips of the pilot being animated in Flash are available online. The first is the intro, where Mordecai and Rigby are playing "punchies" for the clean spoon, and the second part being the segment where they are about tying their game of Rock Paper Scissors 100 times. Both of these, as stated before, have the same premise and plot of the other pilots.


Before information was given by one of the animators, the only proof of existence a Flash pilot may have existed were the resurfaced clips.

On December 15th, 2021, Eric J. Pringle, who animated the Flash clips, along animating with other Cartoon Network shows, confirmed on Twitter to a question about the Flash pilot, that the pilot was not animated in Flash, nor was there a full pilot animated in Flash,[1] but rather 2 clips were recreated in Flash as a test, though they were not made into the cut. The other pilots, and the final show, use traditional animation, rather than the experimented-with Flash animation.
