Star Wars: Clone Wars (sometimes referred to as Tartakovsky's Clone Wars) is an American animated television micro-series adapted, directed, produced and co-written by Genndy Tartakovsky, set in the Star Wars universe. Produced and released between the films Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, it is the first of many works to explore the conflict set between the two known as the Clone Wars, and directly leads to the events of Revenge of the Sith. The show follows the actions of various characters from the Star Wars prequel trilogy, notably Jedi Knights and clone troopers, in their war against the battle droid armies of the Confederacy of Independent Systems and the Sith. The series is notable for introducing the character of General Grievous to the Star Wars universe. The series aired on Cartoon Network for two seasons consisting of 25 episodes from 2003 to 2005, and was the first Star Wars television series since Star Wars: Ewoks in 1986. The first season of Clone Wars, known together as “Volume One”, were produced in a two- to three-minute “micro” format, while the second and final season consisted of five fifteen-minute episodes making up “Volume Two”. Both volumes were later released on home video edited as feature-length films. Since release, the series has received critical acclaim and won multiple awards, including the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program twice for both of its volumes. The success of Star Wars: Clone Wars, which Star Wars creator George Lucas referred to as the “pilot series”, led to a second Clone Wars series — the CGI-animated Star Wars: The Clone Wars — which was produced by Lucasfilm Animation and ran from 2008 to 2014.

The series was produced by Genndy Tartakovsky, creator of Dexter's Laboratory and Samurai Jack, and employs a similar animation style to Tartakovsky's Samurai Jack. Tartakovsky revealed in his Hyperspace commentary tracks on the official Star Wars website and on the Volume I DVD that he purposely animated C-3PO with moveable expressive eyes to pay homage to the animators of and the animation style of Nelvana, the production company behind the animated segment from Star Wars Holiday Special and the 1980s Droids cartoon series. George Lucas, who inspired the Clone Wars television series and served as an executive producer on the series, gave Tartakovsky all the major events during the Clone Wars.
