"Star Wars: The Clone Wars" Season 2 Starts Off with a Bang

Star Wars: The Clone Wars drives me nuts. For the most part, I find, the show suffers the same flaws that afflicted the prequel movies, and which left me disenchanted with the franchise. The characters are either stiff, wooden, and boring as hell, or tremendously, tooth-grindingly juvenile and annoying in a deeply misguided effort to […]

Cool Stuff: Muto

Blu is a street artist based in Bologna, Italy. There is very little information of the biographical sort available on this man, leading me to believe he is either a robot, a unicorn or a robot unicorn. Regardless, he is undeniably talented, as his 7-minute stop-motion graffiti short, Muto, will attest. The Tate Modern Museum […]

"Total Drama Island Season 1": Stupid, Ugly Fun

I did not want to like Total Drama Island. It’s a very ugly show. It’s drawn with a cheap style of Flash that almost all self-respecting animation fans would turn up their noses at; the character designs are angular, and at first glance completely unappealing. The animation is limited to Filmation-esque levels, with several moments […]

Today we have another music video, We R Super Heroes, by Robbert Bobbert and the Bubble Machine. Robbert Bobbert is the children’s music alter ego of Apples In Stereo frontman Robert Schneider. The music video was directed by PUNY Entertainment.   (via @t_animation, Cartoon Brew)

Cool Stuff: Dead All Along

Dead All Along has compelling visuals to go along with some equally cool music. This music video follows a child named Yorick. He enters a magic kingdom after being enchanted by a pixie. Upon his return home, he finds time has ravaged all he had known. The video was animated by MFA student, Giles Timms […]

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

I’ve mentioned my love of the G.I. Joe opening credits sequence before. The opening credits in the video clip embedded below are the ones that started off the full TV series, but the reasons why I like it are present in all the versions that have existed. I think these credits have a remarkable sense […]
