"Timmy Time": A Pre-school Show That Doesn't Try To Pull The Wool Over Your Eyes

By this point it’s safe to say that Wallace & Gromit are the most iconic Aardman characters, as important to their home studio as Mickey and Bugs are to theirs. Even a new show like Shaun the Sheep reinforces the Wallace & Gromit primacy, since it is a spin-off from one of the Wallace & […]

Cable TV Ratings: "SpongeBob" and "Phineas and Ferb" Lead

It really is starting to sound like a broken record, but this is how it typically is… Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob SquarePants was the only animated series in the cable top 25 with total viewers (age 2+) for the week of August 23 – 29. The great yellow ratings winner placed two spots at #20 and #21 […]

Looking Back: The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack

Yesterday, I looked at the Cartoon Network series Chowder and its rocky history, both on and off-screen. Today, I’m tackling a fellow Cartoon Network show slated to end this month, The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack. While the show may not have always gotten the respect and recognition it deserved (as seen by Cartoon Network’s recent […]

Scholastic has announced that season 3 of WordGirl will premiere on PBS Kids Go! on September 13, 2010. The series follows the adventures of WordGirl (the costumed alter ego of mild-mannered 5th grader Becky Botsford), who uses her extraordinary vocabulary powers to defeat an array of bizarre villains who challenge her physical and verbal skills. […]

Looking Back: Chowder

This month, two cartoons will have ended their runs permanently on the Cartoon Network. Chowder and The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack represent the beginning of an era to some and the end of one to others. Their relatively short lifespans have been marked by high drama, extreme office politics, and a chuckle here or there. […]

"Batman: The Brave and the Bold: Season One , Part One": He's Not My Batman

The show deals with some pretty serious subject matter as well, such as death. Examples include the episode “Invasion of the Secret Santas!”, which shows the death of Thomas and Martha Wayne, and my personal favorite episode of the collection, “Fall of the Blue Beetle!”, where it’s shown that not every hero always makes it, […]

"TMNT: Turtles Forever": One Shell Of A Good Time!

The animation is fantastic, brilliantly imitating the 80’s style when needed, while making it still not look too out of place with the 2k3 style. The Mirage Comic version of the Turtles are animated splendidly, looking like a black and white comic book, complete with thick and thin lines and heavy black shading, looking completely […]
