"The Transformers" Complete First Season: How Did a Show This Bad Launch a Franchise?

For fans of the Transformers, the famous robots in disguise, the newly released DVD set of the original TV show’s first season is a cause for celebration.

New Episodes of "Futurama" Coming to Comedy Central

Taking a play off Family Guy’s playbook, The Hollywood Reporter reports that Comedy Central is ordering 26 episodes of Futurama to be aired in mid-2010. The new episodes will pick up after the 4th DTV movie, Into the Wild Green Yonder left off. As with Family Guy, 20th Century Fox Television has the right to […]

Walt Disney Animation Collection, Vols. 1, 5 & 6: Classic Shorts on a Budget

Many of Disney’s short animated films are classics of the medium, but Disney has, at best, had an inconsistent attitude about releasing them to home video. Some have been released in the collector-oriented Treasures tin boxes or as bonus features with full-length movies, but shorts-only releases have been a bit harder to come by. Disney […]

The Hollywood Reporter has posted a Q&A session with Mike Judge, where he discusses the end of the Fox animated sitcom King of the Hill, his bachelor’s degree in physics and how it affected his animation, his “everyman” characters in his live-action and animated projects, and whether he sees his 2006 movie Idiocracy coming true.

"A Bug's Life" Blu-ray: Little Ants, Big Movie

Oddly enough, I never saw A Bug’s Life in theaters back in 1998, opting for DreamWorks’ “ant” movie instead. Eventually, I saw it on home video, and at the time I liked it, but obviously I had no other Pixar film to compare it to other than Toy Story. I didn’t realize that much better […]

"Saturday Morning Cartoons: The '60s": Retro Toons in a Retro Wrapping

The cartoons collected on Saturday Morning Cartoons: The ’60s come from a simpler time, when Saturday morning truly was the best time to watch animation. You could veg out in front of the boob tube for hours without a break. Of course, that was before cable came along to say, “Hey, you don’t have to […]
