History

In November 2006, the domain was registered for Super Deluxe and started out as a bubble popping game with random pictures when you pop the bubbles.[1]

Description

Super Deluxe featured exclusive programming developed for the service by established and rising amateur comedians. This included short comedic sketches, episodic series, and short films.

Artists could share concepts and performances in a forum or in a personalized area. Fans could communicate with them and express their sense of humor through community tools, such as videos, profiles, and messages.

Merger with AdultSwim.com

On May 7, 2008, Turner announced that Super Deluxe would be folding into its sister website, AdultSwim.com. As a result, the majority of the Super Deluxe staff were laid off.[2] Super Deluxe site was officially taken offline on December 17, 2008. A selection of edited videos from Aaron McGruder, Brad Neely, Y'all So Stupid, Tim & Eric, Poundcast, and Bob Odenkirk are available on AdultSwim.com, but they are censored.[3] Uncensored clips can be seen on Youtube.com.[4] The rest of the Super Deluxe library was eliminated.

Rebirth of Super Deluxe

On October 6, 2015, Variety magazine reported [5] that Turner Broadcasting was preparing a new content venture with the same name and based on the previous Time Warner network.
