"Superfriends": Cut to the Cheese

As a kid, I grew up with the likes of Batman: The Animated Series, The New Batman/Superman Adventures and Batman Beyond. Whenever I would flip over to Cartoon Network and see Superfriends, I would quickly turn the channel. Even at a young age, I couldn’t stand its hokey dialogue and animation. Something must have happened […]

"Dragonball Z: Cooler's Revenge/Return Of Cooler" Not The Coolest

Over the course of its Japanese run, Dragonball Z had thirteen theatrical releases. Continuity was always a problem with these: the series, running simultaneously with the movies, tried to stay relatively close to the manga, so it was hard to fit the new stories in.

"Case Closed": The Truth About "The Truth About Revenge"

It’s a new “case” for Case Closed. Seems that FUNimation likes to split up batches of episodes of this series into “Cases” the way they like to split up Dragonball and Yu-Yu Hakusho into “Sagas.” In those series, something changes, usually a major villain or location. The Namek Saga had the Z Warriors on Namek, […]

"Kim Possible: So the Drama" Not Bad, But No Big

“Direct to DVD” releases are often stigmatized as junk unworthy of even a small theatrical release. But in the world of animation, Disney has been laboring hard to change that impression. If widespread critical acceptance still eludes them, they have found the key to rich financial dividends. Such sequels as Lion King 1 1/2 and […]
