"Babar and Father Christmas": Good Christmas Gifts Come In Elephant-Sized Packages

Babar the Elephant is a children’s literary character who has seen a couple of adaptations, including a charming, fairly-long running series from the late 80s by Nelvana. Now, in the age of digitally restored and remastered theme-based single disc DVD releases, the 80′s Babar cartoon (or The Classic Series as the case calls it) returns […]

"Green Lantern: The Animated Series" Shines

I’m not completely sold on the animation yet. CG animation can be a mixed bag, and when it comes to facial expressions and depicting various emotions, that’s where it falls on shaky ground. Luckily, the series is content to spend a lot of time on alien worlds where most characters on the show aren’t human, […]

"Voltron: The Final Battle": Form Season One Finale!

Nostalgia is a funny thing. You look back on something you vaguely remember enjoying years ago, and it makes you smile because you vaguely remember enjoying it. Nostalgia is also a fragile thing because when you go back and take a real look at the thing you like when you’re old and have taste, it […]

"Spider-Woman: Agent of S.W.O.R.D." Picks Up the Wrong End of the Blade

Taking a comic book and putting it up on the TV screen where the pictures can move is kind of a no-brainer. Heck, they’ve been doing that since the Marvel cartoons of the 1960s. It worked then, and now Marvel Knights Animation is busting out with DVDs that transform recent comic books into motion comics. […]

SDCC2011: "Green Lantern: The Animated Series" Teases

It’s a good time to be Green Lantern. At least according to producer/animator Bruce Timm, producer Giancarlo Volpe, and producer/story editor Jim Krieg. Green Lantern will be getting his own CGI animated series on Cartoon Network, adding to Green Lantern events in DC Comics and the Green Lantern movie this summer. CGI is form of […]

SDCC2011: Sony Pictures Animation and Aardman Animations' Upcoming Films Previewed

Aardman Animation, home of Wallace & Gromit, in association with Sony Pictures Animation, made their first ever Comic Con appearance to preview their two new films. The Pirates! Band of Misfits, a 3D stop-motion animated film, shows the adventures of a ragtag group of pirates. Hugh Grant leads an all-star cast including Martin Freeman, Brendan […]

"Thor: Tales of Asgard': I Was a Teenage Thunder God

Thor is a hot property right now, and it’s about freakin’ time if you ask me. He’s been a Marvel Comics heavy-hitter since he was created (well, adapted, from Norse myth) by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby back in the 60s, but he hasn’t seen a whole lot of play outside comics until recently. But […]

"Jabberjaw": Finally Getting Some Respect

Scooby-Doo is one of the most beloved and famous cartoon characters of all time, and Hanna-Barbera certainly collected a lot of dividends on the popularity of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? in the early 70s. And what better way to milk it than to create imitation after imitation? And thus was born 1976′s Jabberjaw, the self-proclaimed […]
