Class of 3000 is an American animated television series on Cartoon Network that was created by, was executively produced by, and starred André 3000 of the Hip Hop group OutKast as superstar and music teacher Sunny Bridges, set at Atlanta, Georgia's Westley School of Performing Arts. Mr. Bridges is a jazz and blues artist who occasionally lectures in Atlanta's Little Five Points neighborhood. It was produced by Tom Lynch Company, Moxie Creative, and Cartoon Network Studios.

As of September 25, 2011, it is currently the last Cartoon Network series to be given a TV-Y7 rating without the Fantasy Violence side rating to accompany it.


Production history

The series made its world premiere (previously advertised as a live premiere with performances by Chris Brown) on November 3, 2006 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT with a one-hour special [1], came to Cartoon Network UK on May 28, 2007 and premiered on Cartoon Network Australia/New Zealand on February 4, 2008. Timothy McGee sued Andre 3000, claiming he proposed the idea for a similar show in 1997 with Andre replaced by Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds.[1] The show was co-created and developed by Thomas W. Lynch & Patric M. Verrone. In January 2010 all mentionings in the website about the show were removed, meaning that Cartoon Network has abandoned it. Although there has not been a DVD released in Region 1, seasons 1 and 2 of the show are currently available on iTunes, with the exception of "The Cure" from season 2.

Main characters


The show received mostly positive reviews. On, the series has a "good" rating of 7.2. On IMDb, the show has a mixed to positive rating of 5.4. The soundtrack rating is a positive 4 and a half stars rating on Amazon.



Throughout the show, the students play songs, sometimes based on how they feel. There are also instruments viewed and played by the students and others in every episode.

A November 3 Newsday article notes that:

....some creative grown-ups throw down each episode, too, providing distinctive visuals for music videos to Andre Benjamin's original songs performed by the class' kids. Ren & Stimpy wild-man animator John Kricfalusi and classic Parliament-Funkadelic cover artist Overton Loyd do the premiere honors, with subsequent contributions from Marvel Comics' Bill Sienkiewicz and Robotboy director Charlie Bean.
