The Cartoon Network's "Samurai Jack" (search) has cut down the "The Simpsons," (search) winning this year's Emmy for best animated show.

It was the first time "Jack" took the animation prize — unseating "The Simpsons," which had dominated the category, winning eight times since 1990.

"Samurai Jack" was created by animation impresario Genndy Tartakovsky (search) and tells the story of an ancient Japanese warrior who is banished into the future by his arch enemy, a demon named Aku.

Tartakovsky snagged a second Emmy for best animated show (over an hour) for Cartoon's micro-series "Clone Wars." The toon tells the goings on in the "Star Wars" universe between the last film, "Attack of the Clones" and the one opening next year, "Revenge of the Sith."
