"Childrens Hospital" (Adult Swim TV show) is a comedy series, created by Rob Corddry ("Hot Tub Time Machine," "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart"), that is based on the Webby Award–winning digital series that debuted on TheWB.com in 2008 and quickly became a web hit with its twisted take on network medical dramas like "Grey's Anatomy" and "House."

"Childrens Hospital" was awarded the Emmy in 2012 in the Outstanding Special Class: Short-Format Live-Action Entertainment Program category and won a Comedy Award in 2011 for best Sketch Comedy/Alternative Comedy Series.

The series explores the emotional struggles and sexual politics of a group of doctors charged with healthy libidos. Their dedication to their personal lives is relentless, interrupted only by the occasional need to treat sick children.

Season 5

The most medically accurate hospital drama in the history of recorded media, "Childrens Hospital"the series returns for its fifth season to find the doctors relocated to a pediatric clinic on a U.S. Army base in Osaka, Japan. With the loss of recently murdered co-worker Dr. Blake Downs (Corddry) still fresh in their minds, the doctors find that life in Japan tests their solidarity in ways it has never been tested before. Conflicts arise with everyone — from the Army bureaucracy to the Japanese mob — in a series of new adventures that include a star-studded show for the troops, a wine tasting held during an operation, a chaotic "old fashioned" day where modern medicine is forbidden, and the closing of Ward 7 for patients' imaginary friends. The tension culminates in an explosive two-part season finale, in which the doctors are thrust onto the front lines of an enemy attack.

Season 7

The doctors are in, and so are their grandparents, a horse who's wanted by the mob, and a salacious art show exhibiting the peculiar works of the enigmatic cast member Just Falcon. Interventionalists turned rehabilitationimalists will relapse, a doctor will hook up with a mom (his own), and occasionally a sick kid will receive some version of medical treatment.

Big questions will be answered, including: What's it like to live in a world without tongue depressors? What's really inside of Chief's hump? Is "Childrens Hospital" actually based off of a sketch from a 1950s variety show? Which religion is the right one? The series culminates with a sneak peak of the never-before-seen, completely crowdfunded "Childrens Hospital Movie." You won't want to miss a single second. Especially the 5,402nd second ... that one is really great.

In addition to Corddry, the cast includes Malin Akerman ("Couples Retreat," "Watchmen"), Lake Bell ("How to Make It in America," "It's Complicated"), Erinn Hayes ("Parenthood," "Worst Week"), Rob Huebel ("I Love You Man," "Human Giant"), Ken Marino ("Party Down," "Reaper"), two-time Emmy winner Megan Mullally ("Will & Grace," "Party Down") and Henry Winkler ("Arrested Development," "Happy Days").

The show's creative team is led by executive producers/writers Rob Corddry ("Hot Tub Time Machine," "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart"), Jonathan Stern ("Burning Love," "Newsreaders") and David Wain ("Role Models," "Wet Hot American Summer").
