The game was developed by Papaya Studio and published by Crave Entertainment for its U.S. release, and it received an ESRB rating of "Everyone 10+" with "Animated Blood, Cartoon Violence, Crude Humor, Tobacco Reference" listed as content for gamers and parents to be aware of.

Caffeinated Thoughts
I have not played Cartoon Network: Punch Time Explosion XL, but I did watch a "Development Diary" for it back in November. The game appears to have similar game-play elements as the Super Smash Bros. games, and even the upcoming PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. Instead of video game characters though, it's with popular cartoon characters off the Cartoon Network. Watch the "Development Diary" below to get an idea of what you can expect from the game:

"Did you ever wonder what would happen if Humungousaur and Samurai Jack met up in a dark alley? What if Dexter took on Mac and Bloo? The possibities are endless! If there was a way to get all your favorite cartoon characters together... Well you don't have to wait any longer... Get ready for Punch Time Explosion!", reads part of the description for the game. If you are a fan of the Cartoon Network characters, seeing the game with an average time of around 15 hours "Per person" I think is pretty good and it might a game you want to add to any "wishlist" you may have.
