Forky Asks A Question "What Is Money?"

I love that he repeats Hamm's name seven times, and then gets it wrong again in the end. That was a great joke, especially since it wasn't commented on by Hamm and allowed to stand. The best comedy isn't super obvious.

I have to be honest. Forky is not my favorite character but this was a dang good short. ****1/2.

Forky Ask A Question "What Is A Friend?"

I love the origin story what Whaaat? Noooo!'s name. That was so funny.

And he's calling Hamm Martin. He's getting even further away from it.

I didn't much care for Forky in Toy Story 4 but he's been pretty hilarious in these shorts. ****1/2.

Forky Asks A Question "What Is Art?"

They couldn't spring for Timothy Dalton? Doom Patrol says the dude isn't actually picky. **1/2.

Forky Asks A Question "What Is Time?"

This short pretty much gives Rex more pathos and nuance than he had in all four movies. ****.

Forky Asks A Question "What Is Love?"

I love Melephant Brooks, Chairol Burnett, Carl Reineroceros, and Bitey White. Stipulated. But they really should have used Barbie and Ken for this, don't you think?

Hearing Betty White was especially good. I haven't really seen her in anything in a couple of years and I was a bit worried about her.

It's different to meet new toys in Bonnie's room that weren't in the movies. It tracks because we spend a LOT less time in Bonnie's room than we did Andy's, but it still feels a little weird.

Cute. ****.

Forky Asks A Question "What Is A Computer?"

I like that Trixie doesn't forgive him at the end. Forky is a pure nuisance. And his speech is negatively influenced by British soap operas. Of course that also describes the speech of pretty much EVERYONE who watches Britiash soap operas so Forky is not special. **1/2.

Forky Asks A Question "What's A Leader?"

It makes sense Dolly gets this question because it's Bonnie's room. But it's another thing to show that the Toy Story franchise will not be what it should be as long as Woody is gone. ***.

Forky Asks A Question "What Is A Pet?"

That was super gross. Also it seems like Forky is always asking the wrong people his questions. Where is Slinky Dog? *1/2.

Forky Asks A Question "What Is Cheese?"

That was excellent.

Buttercup looks like he's seen better days.

I love that Forky actually shuts up long enough for Buttercup to inform him about a ton of important stuff. And the fact that Forky knows Keynes' economics suggests either his idiot routine is a total put-on, or only idiots subscribe to Keynes's economics. The jury is still out on the answer to THAT question. ****1/2.

Forky Asks A Question "What Is Reading?"

I love the Peas in a Pod! They are so cute and I missed them in Toy Story 4.

This addresses a canon concern in who Forky is actually talking to when he breaks the fourth wall. Nobody being there suggests Forky is crazy, and we as the audience are his delusions. Sounds about right. I will accept that role gladly. ****.

Disney is having such a bad time this month. With removing of Love, Simon and moving it's series to Hulu because it is too "mature", stopping production of Lizzie McGuire because it was also too "mature", having a "LGBT representation" in Onward and she only appears in ONE scene, few DisneyParks shutting down temporarily due to Coronavirus, their stock went down, Bob Iger left, and is being replaced by Bob Chapek
I know I’m saying this out of nowhere but, I wish The Hub was still around. My favorite shows were Dan Vs. and The Aquabats Super Show.

Cort Lane leaves Marvel animation.

I'm hoping at some point this decade, Netflix will finally pick up one of Fresh TV's new projects instead of Cartoon Network (not to sound offensive but seven shows seem quite enough).

Also if Total Dramarama does get cancelled at some point, Fresh needs to put the Total Drama franchise to rest (not abandoning it) for a little while and focus on other projects like Lucas the Spider.

I've noticed in my "Alerts" that you've commented on the Flintstones video I posted today, yet no comments from you are visible on the page for it via my laptop/mobile device (I see other comments, though). Not sure what's going on.
