If you read that headline and you got excited about the prospect of a pitch perfect cartoon version of Bryan Lee O'Malley's best-selling graphic novel, I'm sad to say that Scott Pilgrim is not getting a full-blown animated series (yet?). instead, what /film is reporting is a four-minute bumper (split into two parts) that will air on Adult Swim as part of Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World's promotional push. That's better than nothing, right?

The tiny scene uses the actors from the live-action film version (coming August 13) to bring to life the moment from the comics when Scott Pilgrim meets Sex Bob-Omb drummer Kim Pine. An ad for the short reveals that the animation, from Titmouse Inc., is 100% faithful to O'Malley's art style, so fans should be happy when Adult Swim tosses this tiny Scott Pilgrim treat into fandom's gaping maw the night before the film's release.
