  • One situation that confuses Europeans in translating cartoons is the concept of root beer. 1: it isn't beer, 2: it's a soda. And from what I read, nobody in Europe doesn't like it a lot. But translations are rather odd. (continues in comments)

    There is no term for it in the whole Portuguese language, but the "untranslatable beverage" was met with "interesting results". In A Kick in the Asgard (CN dub) it was "non-alcoholic beer". But something interesteing happened in season 6 of SpongeBob.

    All references to root beer in Pearl's slumber party episode were translated as beer. Yeah, how weird. However recently I saw the episode in Ukrainian and it was also translated as beer too. How odd.
    Unlike previous years I was sorta worn out on April Fool's Day. I had a few pranks with potential (Kahootia, Hampsterdance show, etc) and it seems that nobody paid attention. But then again this also reveals another truth about the future of this place. (continues in comments)

    Another factor was that this year April Fool's Day fell on a Friday and even I can't have hold of the last pranks that happen overnight when I'm asleep (these last ones were apparently lackluster). I did avoid referencing current world events.

    Basically I use April Fool's Day to imagine an alternate reality of animation and entertainment in general, and this year's theme was (partly) less streaming and more linear, even though one of the first pranks I made in anticipation was aiming to a streaming future.

    Also April Fool's Day is where I'm the most active, in the past couple of years there have been entire days where I didn't make a post. Maybe I'll do something special for my tenthennial in December.
    I don't know how long I will stay here on a regular basis. Some old buddies of mine left ages ago, and I'm following them wherever they are now. But this also means that so much has changed in these nine years - today was the ninth anniversary of my first post, two days after joining the then-Toonzone.
    Found out that the Kang Fu Amiga CD32 game was made in the Netherlands. The credits had Dutch names and the "ad" for the continuation had a Dutch "see you soon" message.
    With the end of Flash, Gracie Films' site has reconverted its animation to an image and dropped the sound effects - including their iconic jingle.

    If only it was possible for companies to rethink their decision to make movies exclusive to streaming back to their initial supposed theatrican run - they'll have to look at how the situation is faring in countries and regions.

    Wonder why it's impossible to screen "outdated" or "delayed" movies when the situation eases.

Obi-Wan Kenobi vs. Stranger Things Season 4. Which do I watch first?
It's almost game showcase time! Almost time for games to get revealed, a possible Switch 2 (or whatever Nintendo's revealing this year/next year). From Nintendo to SEGA, Sony to Microsoft, Square-Enix to ATLUS, and Microsoft to Capcom. Looking forward again to see more game reveals, E3 is not gonna be here this year, but that doesn't mean the games and game companies won't be. Hopefully it'll all be awesome fun!
I hope this pandemic ends this year, but since cases are rising right now, I‘m afraid it’s a long wait. But I don’t want to go doom and gloom again. And believe me, I went through that before.
With Mom losing nick@nite rights, it will return back to TVLand next week. That show can also be shown other networks like FX, CMT, Paramount and some local networks
