Toonzone Presents: An Interview/Tribute to Dwayne McDuffie

Back in 2006, I briefly flirted with the notion of writing a book about superhero animation, its history and trajectory. It never came to fruition, partially because real life got in the way, and partially because I decided to refocus my energies on my biggest passion, which is voice acting. But I was fortunate enough […]

"Scooby-Doo! Mystery Inc. Season 1 Vol. 1": It's Not Coolsville

Almost everyone over the age of 6 has seen an episode of Scooby-Doo at least once. Scooby’s popularity amazes me. It’s a relatively formulaic show that has somehow managed to last over 40 years, through 11 series, 15 direct-to-video movies, 7 made-for-television animated films, 2 made-for-television live-action films, and 2 live-action theatrical movies. While I […]

"Bambi" Diamond Edition: Pushing Technology Forward in Past and Present

Disney’s Bambi is a movie that I find I appreciate and admire more than I actually love. The recently released Diamond Edition Blu-ray/DVD combo pack provided a perfect opportunity to reacquaint myself with this classic film, since the time since I last saw it can probably be measured in decades and I had few memories […]

"Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom": Bleakness in Three Acts

Ever got to the end of a story and wondered what the point of it all was? That’s exactly the thought I had after watching Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom. That’s not to say the series is badly made, of course. But the story it tells is so utterly nihilistic that there really doesn’t seem […]

"Invader Zim: Operation Doom": Support Zim! Zim Commands It, Filthy Human PigSmelly!

I cannot help but grin from ear to ear as I watch this show. From the fantastic voice work, the gorgeous, original (if occasionally wonderfully grotesque) character designs never before seen in animation, it’s brilliant writing and odd yet hilarious humor, this show is nigh perfect, and in my opinion is the greatest show to […]
