Netflix has secured a raft of grown-up and kids animated titles after inking a deal with Time Warner’s Turner Broadcasting  and Warner Bros. Television Group.

It gives Netflix US rights to shows from Turner’s Cartoon Network and Adult Swim cable nets. The titles from Cartoon Network are: Adventure Time, Ben 10 (pictured), Regular Show and Johnny Bravo.

The new deal also covers the Dallas reboot, which is broadcast on Turner’s TNT in the US. This agreement follows one inked last week with Warner Bros. for new and library TV series.

The Adult Swim shows are: Robot Chicken, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, The Boondocks and Childrens Hospital.

The animated Warner Bros. Green Lantern series has also been licensed and will be in Netflix’s curated Just for Kids section.

Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said: “We are delighted that Netflix will become the exclusive over-the-top streaming subscription destination for past seasons of favorite Cartoon Network and Adult Swim titles. We’re also thrilled to be able to offer the latest seasons of Dallas, one of the greatest all-time guilty pleasures.”
