    Too much Fantastic Voyage parodies

    Like This Thread!
    How many "Fantastic Voyage" parodies on CN we got this year? It looks like a trend!

    Old News

    This was already discussed on the main ToonZone Forum. Fantastic Voyage ranks up there with Star Wars.
    I go forward because I can not go back.

    A FV parody also showed up on the Simpsons' most recent 'Treehouse Of Horror' episode. They even featured Marge in a revealing bathing suit (Mr. Asimov liked to include stuff to maintain his reputation as a 'dirty old man'.)

    Cartoon characters do a lot of shrinking and going inside someone's body. That plot is a cliche itself, and not necessarily referencing a 60's movie every single time.

    Oh...yeah. That's been around since the beginning of time.

    It's rather weird and freaky, at that.

    I don't like shrinking of any kind in tv. It's just stupid. And I haven't even seen Fantastic Voyage. But I suppose every tv show where someone has the power to shrink, they'll do that...

    Just like that, I've killed the thread.

    What about The Fly?!?

    I think about the only thing that's been more overdone than shrinking (if not the Fantastic Voyage kind) would be having a character mix his DNA with that of a housefly. This has been done with cartoons as far back as the Pink Panther, and more recently with the Simpsons (in another Treehouse of Horror episode), Goof Troop, and Johnny Bravo, among those I can remember right now.
