The fourth season of American animated comedy television series Regular Show, created by J. Two 23-year-old friends, a blue jay named Mordecai and a raccoon named Rigby, are employed as groundskeepers at a park and spend their days trying to slack off and entertain themselves by any means. Many of the characters are loosely based on those developed for Quintel’s student films at California Institute of the Arts: The Naive Man From Lolliland and 2 in the AM PM. September 2012, with heavy use of double entendres and mild language Quintel stated that, although the network wanted to step up from the more child-oriented fare, there were some restrictions that came along with this switch. Two months after the park is destroyed by a mysterious businessman, Mordecai and Rigby must save their brainwashed friends in order to prevent a freeway from being built over the park. This introduces Thomas as a recurring character for the first time.
