"Wandaba Style" Vol. 1: Can Mix Juice "Rocket To Stardom?"

The Spice Girls were the biggest “big thing” in girl group history. Puffy Ami-Yumi are the latest Japanese import on the scene, starring in a Cartoon Network show that depicts them doing “normal things” in a very abnormal fashion. But can the States handle a combination of the two? When the polar personalities of the […]

Should You Be Hot For "Please Teacher?"

So, you’ve essentially been in a coma for three years. That’s a bummer. You have to move into a new town, go to a new school, fake that you’re fifteen… and imagine all the television you missed. But when a hot alien babe is your teacher, can you get past your unique physical disability of […]

"Home on the Range": Where Seldom is Heard an Amusing Word

Imagine that the year is 1988. The now trademark Disney formula of groundbreaking animation, catchy score, tale about finding oneself, cute sidekicks, and wealth of clever jokes has yet to be established. The Little Mermaid has yet to be made. Contemporary Disney films include The Great Mouse Detective and Oliver and Company. This is the […]

Abenobashi Vol. 4: Going Out Of Business Sale!

This is it; the Abenobashi Shopping Arcade is closing up. As Arumi and Sasshi fight about getting to their real home, they sidestep into World War III (localized in one shopping mall) and into Hollywood (once again, localized in Japan). But, all trips must come to an end. Will they make it back to Abenobashi, […]

"Lady Death" Reincarnated on DVD

When Hope, unknowing daughter of Lucifer, is killed for her father’s sins, she takes up the offer for a life in Hell rather than experience a horrific death via torching. But as Lucifer is the Lord of Lies, Hope soon learns the true fate of her loved ones, and sets out on a course to […]

Zoinks! This "Doo" Stinks "2"

The legendary Scooby Doo cartoon franchise has had a difficult transition from small to big screen. The first film was much maligned by critics and fans alike for departing too much from the source material and including too much “irreverent” self-referential humor. I found it to be an uneven but enjoyable effort, buoyed by Matthew […]

"Kim Possible: The Villain Files" Not as Funny as Possible

With all eyes focused on the continuing decline of its theatrical animation, Disney has quietly carved out a solid TV franchise with Kim Possible. The Villian Files marks the third DVD compilation release for the teenage girl spy who has beaten the odds to prove that a female lead can successfully anchor an action-oriented cartoon […]

"Ed Edd n Eddy's Jingle Jingle Jangle": The Best Present a TV Has Ever Given Me

Ed, Edd n Eddy will always have a peanut gallery throwing bricks at it. They don’t understand it. They don’t want to understand it. They don’t watch it so that they can justify their totally inaccurate claims about the series. If, on the other hand, you’re the least bit curious about how much the show […]

"Jimmy Neutron: Attack of the Twonkies": Mild Assault on the Funny Bone

In a bid not to be completely lost amidst all the Spongebob movie hoopla, Nickelodeon stablemate Jimmy “I once got Jack Valenti so drunk I woke up with an Academy Award nomination” Neutron has released his fifth compilation DVD – Jimmy Neutron: Attack of the Twonkies. Contrary to current theatrical trends, Nickelodeon’s CGI franchise about […]

"Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie": The Tedium of the Cards

On the heels of the celebrity poker trend comes Yu-Gi-Oh! the Movie, starring the self-proclaimed “king of the cards.” You won’t find him running the tables in Vegas, though. He’s too busy hawking licensed goods at Toys ‘R’ Us. Yu-Gi-Oh! has succeeded Pokemon as the biggest anime merchandising phenomenon in the US, and similar expansion […]
