Cool Stuff: Mario Tells You To Just Say No

I have a tape collection larger than that of many television stations. I don’t believe in editing commercials out, and often I revisit these tapes just to rewatch the ads and promos. This results in such gems as this, which came from my collection: That’s Captain Lou, who played and voiced Mario in the Super […]

Cool Stuff: A Record of Life

I enjoyed this short because it allowed me to zone out and simply absorb the imagery. Sometimes, that’s just what you’re in the mood for. This tasty bit of animation loosely follows the evolution of life on our tiny blue planet and was created by Owen Gately & Luke Jinks. A Record Of Life from […]

Cool Stuff: The Cat Piano

You’ll find some great use of color in this somewhat dark short from the People’s Republic of Animation. In The Cat Piano, we follow our feline protagonist as he attempts to find the source behind a string of kidnappings. This short was directed by Eddie White & Ari Gibson and produced by Jessica Brentnall. The […]

Disney and Marvel: A Primer

Well, that certainly came out of nowhere. In a blockbuster deal announced on Monday, The Walt Disney Company announced plans to purchase Marvel Entertainment in a deal worth $4 billion in cash and stock. That means Howard the Duck and Donald Duck are now brothers, and Disney now gets to finally create that Champions movie […]

Dame Oyaji (1974)

I’ve been thinking about this 1970s anime lately. “Dame Oyaji” (No Good Dad) was very mean-spirited, very poorly-animated (even by Japan’s standards), and just plain clunky. What’s not to like about this show!? Here’s a short clip: This was based on a comic that ran in Shonen Sunday. While the anime only lasted 6 months, […]

Sgt. Frog's Dub: A Success?

As most attentive anime fans know by now, the popular comedy anime Sgt. Frog is emerging from a long limbo outside of Japan. The series’ trials have certainly been tougher than most, with the series suffering delays similar to another currently successful former A.D. Vision title, Gurren Lagann. Sgt. Frog is finally streaming online in […]

Cartoon Intro Cavalcade: The Huntsman

Main title sequences are possibly the most important part of creating a cartoon.  It is the one element that viewers will most notice, as it is the one thing that will consistently air day in and day out.   We’re gonna post the best ones we can find, be it stuff you’ve seen before and stuff […]

Cartoon Intro Cavalcade: "Thundercats" Ho!

From the opening trumpets, to the over-the-top whining electric guitars, to the beautifully detailed and yet still fluid animation, there’s only one word suitable to describe the Thundercats opening theme, “badass”. It’s a slick 1:15 of animation that gets you entirely psyched up to watch a cartoon that’s not nearly as good as what you […]
