"Green Lantern: The Animated Series" Shines

I’m not completely sold on the animation yet. CG animation can be a mixed bag, and when it comes to facial expressions and depicting various emotions, that’s where it falls on shaky ground. Luckily, the series is content to spend a lot of time on alien worlds where most characters on the show aren’t human, […]

"Green Lantern: The Animated Series": Beware Not

My first impressions of Green Lantern: The Animated Series were formed at Comicon, and they weren’t good. The clips were action figure theater. But my eyes have gotten somewhat used to the show, especially after viewing the first episode, “Beware My Power.” It breaks conveniently in half for broadcast, and more than half of it […]

Toonzone News Interviews Giancarlo Volpe, Producer of "Green Lantern: The Animated Series"

In a relatively short time in the animation industry, Giancarlo Volpe has made quite an impression. Volpe graduated from the School of Visual Arts in New York City in 1997 and worked as an animator for video games such as Politically Correct Bedtime Stories, and Pajama Sam and Putt Putt games for Humongous Entertainment. From […]

"The Transformers: The Headmasters" Less Than Meets The Eye

With Optimus Prime’s life returned, the war between the Autobots and Decepticons waged on. When new heroes and villains from the planet Master make their allegiances known, a new plateau of warfare is reached. Headmasters, powerful warriors who form the heads of larger mechas, might be the superior force needed to decimate one’s foes. Can […]

"Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness" - Only Half a Loaf of Kung Fu

Anything worth doing is worth overdoing, and there may be no animation studio in Hollywood who embraces that maxim more thoroughly than DreamWorks Animation. If one takes their chief executive at face value, they never work on any projects that aren’t destined from the outset for three- to four-movie sagas with spinoffs and TV specials […]

Young Justice - "Failsafe" Recap

During an alien invasion, the team faces the ultimate challenge when they are forced to replace the fallen Justice League! Young Justice is still a relatively young series, but I’ll venture to predict that “Failsafe” will ultimately go down as its most divisive episode. The opening act is certainly an effective hook; in a very […]

"Tom & Jerry" Golden Collection Vol. 1: Not Purr-Fect, But Pretty Good

Do I really need to describe Tom & Jerry? I don’t think I do. Aside from the fact that the premise of their cartoons (cat chases mouse) is so simple to describe, I think most everyone knows these iconic characters. Plus, I’ve described the series in previous Toonzone reviews, so I won’t waste your time. […]

Toonzone News Interview: James Hong Talks "Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness"

James Hong, a veteran actor with over five hundred television and film credits was in the midst of a voice recording session for the new series, Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness, which is set to premiere on Nickelodeon next month. Under the […]

Cool Stuff: The Backwater Gospel

A local guitar-playing vagrant announces the coming of the Undertaker to the God-fearing congregation of the church in a backwater 1930′s Dust Bowl town. While the Undertaker waits patiently at the town square, the Minister riles the townspeople up and convinces them the tramp is the source of their distress and that his death will […]
