  • From the way the weather is acting in my area, it maybe wouldn't be a bad idea to get some of those glasses Captain Cold wears.
    I'm surprised there isn't going to be some kind of animated project for the Turtles of Grayskull MOTU/TMNT crossover toyline. If anything, it might help increase Masters of the Universe's profile among toy's kids. But what do i know?
    So apparently, Peter Parker and Mary Jane are getting married again......

    .....in the Ultimate universe.

    Well played, Marvel. Well played.
    McFarlane announced at Toy Fair they're going to be making G.I. Joe and Transformers Page Punchers figures. I wonder how much the fact that Robert Kirkman has the comics licenses for both now played into the decision?
    When the boards were down, I discovered this weird old sketch comedy film from the 1970s on Tubi TV called Tunnel Vision. It has Danny Dark, the guy who voiced Superman on the Superfriends, as a newscaster, but he's making jokes about the Polish and telling you what you should say to a Hell's Angel Biker to tick them off, that I can't repeat here, all in that voice that puts "Great Scott!" in your head.

    Yeah, this was an odd little mini-genre of low budget movies that was a thing in the 70s and promptly swept under the carpet. Most famous is Kentucky Fried Movie, but there's also The Groove Tube, Dynamite Chicken (with Richard Pryor) and one with a young Robin Williams that I probably shouldn't even name on this forum!
    This morning at 5 AM, I tune into the Pluto TV Garfield and Friends channel, and find they're showing Garfield His 9 Lives. Man, that laboratory bit is as messed up as Peter Griffith said it was.
    Last night, I watched Here Comes Garfield and Garfield on the Town for the first time in like 40 years on the Pluto TV Garfield and Friends channel. Man, was that a trip. Even weirder was hearing someone other than Thom Huge as the voice of Jon Arbuckle.
    I remember when the only thing you could watch on Labor Day was the Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon. Those of you under 30 don't know what it was like, the same thing on every channel, and barely no escaping it.

    Don't get me wrong, muscular dystrophy is a bad thing, but to be beaten with the message how bad it is every year at the same time......you can see why people got tired of it, That, and reports of Jerry Lewis's scummy attitude to those with MD.

    I remember it being around as a kid, since I had local stations from different areas, there was two different areas airing with their local inserts. It also was on WGN Superstation. We don't really long telethons anymore, since the ones we do get are like maybe 3 hours and on one night, like the Stand up to Cancer events.

    I have never even seen one of those. I always skipped them.
    A character on The Simpsons made the case that animation is a field built on plagiarism. I think the same thing could be said for comic books and video games, as well.

    Just ask, and I could provide examples for both.

    The fact that there’s a genre called “roguelike” and there used to be a genre called “Doom clone” demonstrates how ingrained borrowing and imitation are to video games.

    I read how Mary Jane Watson was inspired by Ann-Margaret in Bye Bye Birdie, because Amazing Spider-Man artist John Romita (Sr.) had seen that movie and wanted to draw her.

    IIRC, early space shooters had an even earlier precedent with the first two arcade video games: Computer Space and Galaxy Game (both 1971), which were themselves inspired by Spacewar! (1962).
    Recently saw some Black Adam movie Funko Pops at my local Wal-Mart. Doesn't this movie come out until October?
    The fact I've forgotten my high school locker combination, but still remember that Elroy found Orbitty when his class went on a field trip to the Moon (Take THAT, Harvey Birdman!) in the 1980s episodes of The Jetsons, says a lot about me.
    That SpongeBob "I don't need it I don't need it I definitely don't need it I NEED IT!" meme sums me up so well.
    "Why does The Flash need a car, when he can already run at super-speed?", I always say when I'm in the Hot Wheels section of Wal-Mart or whatever and see a Flash car that's painted red with the lightning-bolt logo on the roof.
    I wonder if Mattel is going to make an animated Masters of the Universe project that includes the Sun Man and the Rulers of the Sun characters? It would be....interesting to see Pighead and Skeletor team up to fight their respective heroes.
    RIP Neal Adams. His opinions on geology were....questionable, but he was a great superhero comics artist, darn it!

Better late than never, but I did Christmas shopping today for myself. I now have two Bluey shirts, two really cute Sanrio shirts, and a Care Bears shirt.
I think that we can declare Cartoon Network to be officially dead . Michael Ouleween and Warner Discovery killed it.
I've always had trouble with words, but it feels like it gets harder the older I get. It's a big reason why music is an interest of mine. I find it's easier to say how I feel with other peoples' words. Some songs particularly resonate with me more than others.
I'm just gonna say this, and I'm gonna see it where it lands.

After seeing this video, say what you will about Hanna Barbara, they have done a lot more for animation than most people give credit for.

Are we allowed to talk about the original Boondocks pilot *just* found? FOX didn’t take it, it’s twenty years old, and Boondocks has been off the air for ten years.
