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.
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.
"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.
Today at Wal-Mart, I saw some large Funko Pops of a Zombie Black Panther. All I could think was, "Isn't this a bit insensitive to the family and friends of Chadwick Boseman?". I'm not offended, just pointing this out.
Discovered HBO Max has the original Super Friends cartoons among their DC stuff. Watched an episode I don't think I've seen since I was little, with an Arabian Nights-in outer space type civilization, with a bad guy who's like Jafar from Aladdin plotting to use a genie's magic lamp to destroy the Super Friends.
I know this is nerdy pedantry but it bug me when writers refer to cartoons that aired in Prime Time or Syndication as "Saturday Morning Cartoons". I don't expect the average person to know/care, but when you're writing an article or a video essay? Come on, you should get that right.
Posting less going well. No warnings for anything so I think the board agrees. Still present for everything and DO read what you guys say. But if I see something I don't like I keep my damn mouth shut. It's for the best.
20 Years ago today, Discovery Kids on NBC launched , it was my first introduction to Discovery Kids. I didn't have digital cable so I didn't have the channel. I liked Trading Spaces: Boys vs Girls. Tutenstien, Kenny the Shark, Time Warp Trio, Darcy's Wild Life.
