  • The rumors of Josh Keaton's cameo on a certain animated series have me intrigued. I'll be amazed if it happened.
    For some reason, it's easier for me to catch up on movies while I'm flying or when I'm out of town than it is when I am at home. I can't fully explain it.

    Maybe it’s because while someone is on the road they have some less responsibility and more down time, so it’s easier to put something on to lull the passing of time?

    I try not to expect too much for Christmas but I get a little something like a 90s X-Men, and it feels like they know me so well.
    I wish I had gotten to see it in theaters instead of just catching it on home video but this was still such a big release for me as a kid

    I was 6 years old on December 25, 1993 and as big fan of Batman: The Animated Series when they aired in 1992, I didn't know this movie released to movie theater. If my mom know, she probably don't find this to be special to me.

    I just noticed that the Dungeons & Dragons streaming channel was available. It had me wondering if Hasbro/WOTC owned the old animated series now or if it's still owned by Disney, like it was in the days of DVD and Jetix. This is always been one of my favorite animated series, and I've enjoyed all of the nostalgic shilling they've done with the characters over the past few years.

    I had no idea you were a huge "Dungeons and Dargons" animated series fan. It's my favorite 80's cartoon, even in a world of neverending new versions of He-Man, Ninja Turtles, Transformers (which I loved in the 80's as well). I still own my DVDs, but it'd be nice if it was on a streaming platform!

    I've been a huge fan since I first saw it air where I lived back in the early '90s. I have the old BCI DVD set myself. They have the series streaming on a streaming channel called Dungeons & Dragons Adventures that is running it alongside playthroughs of the role-playing game.

    I didn't get to see this Superman series until close to 20 years after its run. It's cool finding out that there was still material from it that I hadn't come across.
    I was on a kick this week, going through all these old family photos to preserve what I can or whatever. It was fun learning bits that I forgot or never knew but one thing that had me tickled was finding a pic of my dad in a Mickey Mouse shirt similar to one I wore years later as a baby.

    In retrospect, it makes a lot of sense that he was so good at keeping up with getting the newest Disney clamshells for us.

    I feel like doing that with some of my photo albums- scanning them to have them in a digital format. Just have to put aside the hours it would take...

    It's definitely a little time consuming but I'm so glad that I did it after seeing how many pictures have faded and degraded over the years.
    I started watching Freakazoid! this week and I can't figure out why I couldn't get into this show as a kid. I'm thoroughly enjoying it now.

    I don't know your age, but if you were a kid when F! debuted, it could be that many of the jokes and references went over your head, as they were very esoteric.

    I was the kid who was into it from Day 1 and let me tell you, those first couple of years were lonely ones.

    I think I was a kid the wackiness and comedy didn't strike me but I watched it religiously as a typical Superhero show lol.
    It hadn't crossed my mind that it was the 60th Anniversary of Spider-Man. Just saw this little short. Not Superman Anniversary short level but it's something.

    Is it scary that I remember Spider-Man's 30th anniversary in 1992? They do this every 10 years (celebrating the Marvel superheroes that premiered from 1961 to 1964), but the early 90's celebration is burned into my childhood comic collecting memories.
    I just found out that The Tick is on Hulu. I'd never had the chance to go through the full series before. This should be fun.

    Just noticed this on the feed to the right. Thanks for the head's up. It's been literally decades since I've watched season 3 - remember when The Tick aired on Comedy Central?

    On one hand it's perplexing as to why it's not on D+ (at least in the US), but on the other hand the show isn't exactly Disney-esque considering the content.

    So I watched a couple episodes and although it's complete for the most part, some episodes have music completely missing. I have to imagine Disney couldn't sort out music publishing issues (Disney never took proper care of the Fox Kids library, primarily because they only got it for Freeform which was all they cared about) so they just muted the soundtrack entirely.

    Oddly, I find it more appealing without it.
    Small victory. Finding out that all of the episodes of one of my favorite pure cheese 80s cartoons, Mister T, are on TubiTV. WB only released the first season to DVD as far as I knew.

    I've been reading Flint Dille's autobiography recently. He described writing for the Mr. T cartoon as "challenging" .
    Did something Fantastic Four related happen this week? I've seen the last animated series put on to YouTube, among other happenings, and I'm just wondering if a new push for the characters just started.

How am I supposed to do therapy? How do I avoid turning them into coloring book sessions?
Ugh, I was having such a nice day yesterday, and this morning I have something wrong with my throat.

Good news according to my friend in the Philippines with proof. Sky Cable will continue beyond and Postpone or not proceed to complete the acquisition of SKY CABLE to PLDT. WBD's Channels like Cartoon Network, Cartoonito, HBO, etc. will continue to watch beyond.
Anyone ever come across the movie Nickelodeon and think, "Burt Reynolds made a movie about the children's network?".

Also, don't get me started about the Raul Julia movie Kiss of the Spider Woman not having anything to do with the Marvel Comics character.....
