"The Powerpuff Girls Rule!!!": Yes Indeedy, They Do!

Has it really been ten years since The Powerpuff Girls debuted? That iconic show, one of a handful that established Cartoon Network at the end of the 1990s as the place for cartoons, has been off the air so long that it seems much longer. It is, in a way, a reminder of how quickly […]

"xxxHOLIC" Vols. 4, 5 and 6: It's Scary How Lame This Series Turned Out to Be

"Transformers Animated" Season Two: Still Kicking Skid Plate, but Slipping Gears

The premiere to Transformers Animated was one of the most pleasant surprises of 2008—a fast, fun, and fascinating bit of lightweight fluff that updated the venerable robot toys for a new generation of kids. The first 13-episodes of the show kept up the pace, slipping only a bit with a few weaker plots and characters. […]
