"Best. Episode. Ever!" Toonzone Talks "My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic"

MLPthumb

Perhaps the greatest success of the still-young TV network The Hub is its hit children’s show My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. If nothing else there is little question it has been one of its standout hits. Wholesome as it is fun, since its inception the program has been winning over not only young girls […]

Review: "G.I. Joe Renegades" Complete First Season Blu-ray Easily Worth a Double-Dip

thumb-gijoerenegadesbr

I must admit a non-trivial sense of ambivalence on the conclusion of the first and only season of G.I. Joe Renegades. The best compliment I can pay to the show is that I walked into the two-part season premiere as a skeptic and walked out of the two-part season finale as a convert. G.I. Joe […]

Review: "G.I. Joe" Series 2 Season 2 Surrenders to the Suck

thumb-gijoes2s2

I thought that the previous season of the DiC G.I. Joe series would prepare me for what was to come in the second and last one, now available on a 3-disc set from Shout! Factory and Hasbro. However, it turns out that even my lowest expectations weren’t sufficiently low, because G.I. Joe Series 2 Season […]

"G.I. Joe: Renegades" Season 1 Vol. 1: Patience Pays Off for a Band on the Run

G.I. Joe: Renegades is a really great show when it’s not driving me completely crazy. The series launched almost simultaneously with the Hub network, but received a more mixed reception than Hasbro’s other flagship toy property Transformers Prime, due to a big twist in the plot of the show and a daring new visual style. […]

"Conan the Adventurer" Season 2 Part 2: The Slow Rise of the Cimmerian

“Final Hours of Conan” is another of this set’s successes, as Conan is infected with a poison that will turn him into a Serpent Man under the thrall of Wrath-Amon, who offers Conan and his companions an antidote in return for their Star Metal weapons. It’s surprisingly effective, even if we know subconsciously that the […]

"My Little Pony FIM": "A Canterlot Wedding" Isn't Quite a Match Made in Heaven

Suffice it to say that, for various reasons not relevant to a critical notice, I don’t get to watch American cartoons except when they get shipped to me for review. So, my only background to My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic‘s “A Canterlot Wedding” (my goodness, that’s a lot of words to use when identifying […]

"Conan the Adventurer" Season 1: By Crom, What a Disappointment!

It’s a pleasure to report that there is at least one Saturday morning cartoon out there that manages to capture the untamed, muscular sensibilities of Robert E. Howard’s famous barbarian swordsman, Conan. Unfortunately, that cartoon is Thundarr the Barbarian. Beside that one, 1992′s Conan the Adventurer is only the palest of shadows of Howard’s original, […]
