Warner Bros. might be interested in building an entire feature film around the Looney Tunes character Pepe Le Pew. The news leaked out during the SDCC panel for Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, where writer Max Landis admitted the spec script was one of the projects he was working on. Um. Well. That would certainly […]

SDCC 2016: World Premiere Justice League Action Trailer

by Peter Paltridgeon July 21, 2016
If the newly released Comic-Con trailer for Justice League Action is any indication, WBA’s next effort should be a terrific new take on the DCU. For one thing, Booster Gold seems to have a larger role than anyone thought; he appears to be a regular, and that’s fine with us. All his lines are, well, […]

SDCC 2016: DreamWorks Offers Musical “Trolls” Trip

by Peter Paltridgeon July 21, 2016
DreamWorks Animation needs a hit badly. Is “Trolls” that hit? Too early to tell. For Comic-Con, the ailing studio has released a minute and a half of footage from their upcoming movie based on those ugly things kids used to collect in the 90’s. These trolls don’t look ugly, however. The animation style is what […]

We expect to hear a lot more about the upcoming return of DuckTales during San Diego Comic-Con, but there’s a bit out already. The official D23 website published a new piece of promotional art this morning featuring Huey, Dewey, Louie, Webby and Donald….inside a silhouette of you-know-who.

That Didn’t Take Long: Homer Simpson Is Playing Pokemon Go

by Peter Paltridgeon July 18, 2016
Given the slow pace at which Simpsons episodes are constructed, compounded with the backlog the show has built over the years, it can sometimes take a year and a half — “or longer” — for a world event or trend to get its own satirical take. I figured we would inevitably see Homer mess with […]

Comedian Patton Oswalt will be guest-starring in an upcoming episode of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. “Stranger Than Fan Fiction” is an episode aimed directly at the fans where Rainbow Dash attends the Equestria equivalent of Comic-Con, […]

Mike Judge Considering A Live-Action Beavis And Butthead

by Peter Paltridgeon July 11, 2016
Mike Judge, master satirist and creator of several hit shows over his long career, has a tendency to occasionally return to the original series that shot him to fame, Beavis and Butthead. The first run lasted six seasons on MTV and spawned a feature film. The show later returned in late 2011 funnier than ever, […]

Histeria Finally Coming To DVD

by Peter Paltridgeon June 30, 2016
They’ll love this in Bulgaria. Until now, the biggest hole in the WB Silver Age library was Histeria, the 52-episode edutainment program that aired between 1998 and 2000 on Kids WB. Previously only available in bootleg form (and still rare at that), Warner Bros. is finally releasing the show in one go next month, with […]

Finding Dory Crowd Accidentally Shown Raunchy Rogen Trailer

by Peter Paltridgeon June 29, 2016
People have a tendency to lump movies together based on how they look. The TVTropes page “All Animation Is Disney” contains plenty of examples. It resulted in a generation of children being traumatized by Watership Down being stocked in the kiddie section of video rental stores, and now the ol’ ignorance has struck again. Up […]
