There's the good, the great, and then there's the BEST. Welcome to MTV Geek's Best of 2012 -- what we thought were the cream of the crop this year in the world of GEEK!
As MTV Geek continues our look at the most OMG moments in pop-culture this year, we turn our attention to a "very special episode" of an insanely popular cartoon...
Imagine watching your favorite animated series as a child -- like, let's say, "Chip 'n Dale's Rescue Rangers" -- and suddenly Gadget had this really heavy revelation about her past that seemed to come out of nowhere and was something you'd more readily find on a adult TV drama. And the storyline "worked," and "Rescue Rangers" fans all over started crying in front of the TV screen and making sad fan art to express their many feels. Read More...

Alice, Superjail's sole guard and brawny terror isn't known for her domestic skills. In fact, if you asked her to cook up a meal, she'd probably serve you your own giblets. But in this week's episode, "Nightshift," Alice takes on a new job and discovers that she has a new talent.
Parry Gripp is most definitely living the dream of most any serious geek with a guitar.

Earlier this month, animator J.G. Quintel's Emmy-winning The Regular Show returned for a fourth season on Cartoon Network. Among the new batch of episodes featuring slacker park employees Mordecai and Rigby, we got a brand-new Halloween episode with "Terror Tales of the Park Part II," a sequel to last year's half hour of horror.
Recently, I spoke to Quintel about the spookiest day of the year and romance, along with his thoughts on the upcoming release of the next DVD release Regular Show: The Best DVD in the World *At this Moment in Time next Tuesday, and his hopes for a full season release.
So this is one of those unfortunate years where Halloween falls in the middle of the week. Trick or Treating and/or terrifying Trick Or Treaters on a Wednesday? No thank you.

The fan-favorite gender-flipping episode "Adventure Time With Fionna and Cake" has a sequel inbound this season with the 2013 episode "Bad Little Boy" while Adventure Time returns to Cartoon Network in November. After the jump, find out what other character is getting the gender switch along with some of the other guest stars appearing over the next season.
