[adult swim] started airing re-runs of My Hero Academia last week to finish off their weekday line-up. I've only caught bits & pieces on Toonami beforehand, so I decided to take this chance to fully watch the series after hearing others put a good word in for it.
Today marks the 8th Year Anniversary of when the 20th episode of ThunderCats (2011), "Curse of Ratilla", premiered on TV. It's one of my favorite episodes from the show and Ratar-O became one of my favorite villains from the show.
I'm one of those Star Wars fans that never hated the Prequel Trilogy and felt it got more hate than it deserved. It wasn't perfect but neither was the Original Trilogy and I felt it did have its strengths.
Happy birthday to Carlo Rota, his performance is one of the reasons why Ratar-O ended up becoming one of my favorite villains in ThunderCats (2011). Although many details about the rest of the series have been revealed, Ratar-O's future appearances remain a mystery at the moment.
Today marks the 8th Year Anniversary of when The Legend of Korra first premiered on TV (the online premiere was March 24th of that year). There were aspects I felt were better executed in Avatar: The Last Airbender but there were aspects that I felt were better executed in The Legend of Korra.
Today marks the 3rd Year Anniversary of Yooka-Laylee. I found myself enjoying the game for the most part and the spin-off released last year (Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair) makes me curious to see what the future holds for this franchise.
Today marks the 10th Year Anniversary of Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated and the 7th Year Anniversary of its series finale. It ended up becoming my favorite adaptation of the Scooby-Doo Franchise and found out about Lewis Black by name (I had heard his voice in some earlier shows).
Today marks the 12th Year Anniversary of The Spectacular Spider-Man TV Series. Both it and the 90s Series are the animated shows of the web-head that I had the chance to watch when they were first airing on TV. I find it unfortunate that the show wasn't able to make it past two seasons and that Greg Weisman hasn't shared much details about what could have happened in hypothetical later seasons.
Mao Mao has been on hiatus since October. There will be no new episodes airing in June in the U.S., despite those last 9 episodes of Season 1 (31-40) allegedly leaked by Aussie streaming service Stan back in April, and we've been telling ourselves NOT to spoil any of these episodes on social media until they are officially released.
Man, it's really hard to like your favorite show when it's stuck in a long hiatus...
I found this interview that Pam Arciero (Grundgetta from Sesame Street) took part in. I mainly skipped to 1:35, where she mentioned how production on the show ground to a halt because of the pandemic. There was about 1 more week of material to tape. She says they could start again in October, but that could change.
