Cartoon Intro Cavalcade: "G.I. Joe (1985)"

by Ed Liuon September 23, 2009
I’ve mentioned my love of the G.I. Joe opening credits sequence before.

by Ed Liuon September 11, 2009
I was enough of a comic book fan at the time to get the joke when the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle comics by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird hit the scene, but even then I was never sure if the joke could sustain itself. I was definitely a little bit too old to have […]

"Moonlight Mile" Complete First Season is One Very Small Step for Animated Sci-Fi

by Ed Liuon August 31, 2009
One of the more interesting premises underlying the anime series Moonlight Mile is that the next generation of astronauts will not be fighter pilots and astrophysicists, but construction workers. This makes Moonlight Mile comparable to the series Planetes, which used mundane hues to color the exotic by centering on interstellar garbage men. Moonlight Mile‘s hard […]
