Toonzone Interviews Asaph Fipke, Supreme Commander of Nerd Corps, on the "Slugterra" Movies

by Ed Liuon August 20, 2014
Asaph “Ace” Fipke bills himself as the Supreme Commander of Nerd Corps, the Vancouver-based animation studio, and the whimsy in job title carries over into their TV shows. A child actor whose father was in show business as well, Fipke began college at the University of BC, but dropped out in favor of the Vancouver […]

Review: "Slugterra: Ghoul from Beyond" Doesn't Go Too Far

by Ed Liuon June 13, 2014
Slugterra: Ghoul from Beyond is a mildly disappointing effort in the Slugterra franchise for a few different reasons. Despite its billing as “the first Slugterra movie,” a short running time and average production values makes it look like just a two-part episode of the TV show. It’s also saddled with a drawn out and padded […]

Review: "Slugterra: Heroes of the Underground" - Best Slugs Yet

by Ed Liuon March 7, 2014

Review: "The Legend of Smurfy Hollow" Charms; "Slugterra: Slug Power!" Stumbles

by Ed Liuon September 11, 2013
I’ll admit that the Smurfs aren’t my favorite characters in the world, either in their original comic book or later animated forms. I like them fine, for the most part, and while I may like things like “The Purple Smurfs” or one of their holiday specials, I think I still tend to approach all things […]

Review: "Transformers Rescue Bots: Energize" & "Slugterra: Slugs Unleashed"

by Ed Liuon June 19, 2013
As I’m sure I’ve written before, I’d be shocked and dismayed at the way Transformers: Rescue Bots smashes little boy hot buttons by centering on rescue vehicles that turn into giant robots, except that it’s actually a really good show. The show’s second DVD, Transformers Rescue Bots: Energize, has just been released, and my only […]
