  • 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!
    More The Batman movie merchandise sightings, this time it's Mattel's Hot Wheels 1:50 scale Bat-cycle and Batmobile at WalMart.
    Yesterday at my local Meijer store, I saw LEGO sets for The Batman movie. I guess merch is starting to hit the shelves.

    They were at my Barnes and Noble. I wasn't really paying attention, but the movie's almost here, huh?
    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.

    Was this funko pop made before or after Chadwick Boseman's death?

    It was a part of the current Marvel Zombies assortment, so maybe before?
    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've watched "Challenge of the Superfriends" (or really, the whole 1978 to 1981 era of Superfriends) more than once in my life, including just a few years back on DVD. But I recently sat down and watched the 1st episode of the 1972 season of Superfriends (the first season) on HBO Max. And man, that was rough. Still, I plan on eventually going through and watching the whole series again on HBO Max.

    Yeah, I plan on skipping the Wendy, Marvin, and Wonder Dog eps on my watch-though. No wonder they were ditched for the Wonder Twins.

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.
Oh hey today is my 8th anniversary here, I regret sometimes not making my account sooner, since I knew about this place as early as 2012. Anyhow time sure flies.
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.
Reading about Shea Fontana and watching this video with Ann Austen makes me want to see them collaborate on a project someday.
