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 […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]

Disney Lets Moana’s First Trailer Loose

by Peter Paltridgeon June 20, 2016
If you saw Finding Dory this weekend, then you also saw Disney’s very first trailer for their next animated feature, Moana. (You probably also saw the fifteen billionth appearance of the Secret Life of Pets trailer….if I have to watch that headbanging poodle ONE MORE TIME…but I digress.) Check out Maui! He’s got a giant […]
