    "Krypto The Superdog: The Complete Series" DVD Release Talkback (Spoilers)

    Can someone confirm whether the series is actually in true widecreen or not? nothing on the back cover to indicate the aspect ratio

    "Scooby-Doo" Direct-to-Video Animated Features News & Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

    Why even do a Krypto cross over, if they aren't going to use the characters? the major DC characters were never the focus of the TV series

    "Krypto The Superdog: The Complete Series" DVD Release Talkback (Spoilers)

    Wasn't this DVD release delayed until 27th September? at least that is the release date Amazon and other online stores are showng now.

    Disney+ News & Discussion Thread

    Previous TV limitations shouldn't effect how a cartoon series is shown on streaming. Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go! was produced for widescreen from the start (see reference ). The complete series was shown in widescreen on TV down here in Australia.

    DC Comics Animation - Physical/Digital Media News & Discussion Thread, Part 20 (Spoilers)

    The problem is when you don't have streaming access at all, the streaming access for content from Cartoon Network / Warner Bros isn't as good in other countries. We don't have a dedicated streaming service for Cartoon Network / Warner Bros in Australia, only limited selection of new and old...

    Yes, it seems pointless to add more series, if we aren't going to see the series uncut or completed.

    Unconventional or unpopular opinions you have (re: animation)

    No, the Filmation series have not aged very well at all, I meant more like draw on existing characters, locations and the world bible (sometimes exists for cartoon series). By existing lore, I didn't just mean previous cartoon series, books or comics are a great source for better stories. The...

    Unconventional or unpopular opinions you have (re: animation)

    That is exactly the problem with many reboots, they are more interested in twisting the characters around in the name of diversity, than just trying a fresh take story wise using existing lore. The worst part is it never seems enough for some people, Avatar: The Last Airbender had good world...

    Do we really want more Jetix series on Disney+? they get terrible treatment on the service. Super Robot Monkey Team HyperForce Go! is still cropped to 4:3, and has not had any more seasons added.

    DC Comics Animation - Physical/Digital Media News & Discussion Thread, Part 20 (Spoilers)

    I don't like the sound of a DVD release of Krypto the Superdog: The Complete Series at all, as that means even less chance of a true widescreen release. There is no good reason the series couldn't be released on Blu-ray, considering it is available in HD, even if a limited release.

    Is The Batman animated series from 2004 underrated?

    No, I recently watched the complete series, due to the Blu-ray releases, and I thought the later seasons got worse. I actually preferred the first two seasons, since they were a different take, with the focus on the early years. I liked seeing more interaction between Batman & Alfred, seeing...

    "Masters of the Universe: Revelation" Series Talkback (Spoilers)

    I'm talking physical aspects of the characters, it doesn't make any sense for Adam to actually appear more femine, when it is all an act. I don't recall Skeletor obsessing over He-Man when he was winning in the Filmation series, only when he started losing, although I didn't watch a large amount...

    "Masters of the Universe: Revelation" Series Talkback (Spoilers)

    Revelations makes a complete mockery of the whole franchise, even if you ignore the PC elements. It is just crazy, when Teela looks more muscular, while Adam looks more feminine. Looked like even the Horde will be effected, judging by the last few scenes. In particular, we finally get to see...

    Spider-Man Into The Spider-verse will go down in history as the start of a new era in animation!

    Ugh, we don't need more style over substance. There were numerous reviews complaining specifically about the animation style, this will just put more people off animation. Spider-Man Into The Spider-verse was a terrible movie too, the villains were all twisted in the name of diversity, and the...

    New cartoon ''The Deep'' premieres November 30th on Seven | EDIT: Now on Netlfix in the US

    I recently watched season 2 and 3, since it was on Netflix, and the series only gets worse: Season 2 has the family searching more seriously based on a map, but is still a mix of filler. A new obnoxious villain (Alpheus Benthos) is added, who's background is never explored, and then dropped next...

    Gargoyles or Avatar: The Last Airbender

    Gargoyles is the most over rated cartoon of all time, they were making it up as they went along, the characters were inconsistent and failed to develop, and the story spent too much time in the past. Gargoyles really went downhill with Avalon, and never recovered. In particular the other...

    "X-Men '97 (Disney+ "X-Men TAS" sequel)" Animated Series News & Discussion (Spoilers)

    Big Hero 6 never focused on the super hero elements, MODOK was a comedy, and What If? was completely episodic. There have been no decent Marvel action cartoons in the style of X-Men: TAS (on-going elements, and stories) since The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes and Spectacular Spider-Man.

    "X-Men '97 (Disney+ "X-Men TAS" sequel)" Animated Series News & Discussion (Spoilers)

    Sounds like terrible news, there is no way this will live up to the old series, and I dread to see how the series will be modernized. X-Man: TAS already felt like they were running out of ideas in the last season, and Disney have not done a decent Marvel cartoon series for many years.

    Yes, those strong aspects of season 1, plus the daughter & mother relationship, made the series more original and unique.

    “Hilda” News & Discussion Thread

    The series isn't worthy of any awards, season 2 was abysmal: Adding the leader of the safety patrol as a villain, who never suffers the consequences of his actions. The forced conflict between mother and daughter, which went against their relationship in the first season. Somehow making David an...

    “Hilda” News & Discussion Thread

    The Deer Fox was a completely generic episode, a pet gets neglected, runs away, and is reunited in the end. It was nice to see Deer Fox's back story, but Deer Fox staying in the wild would have been a much better ending. Wild animals don't belong in urban areas, to matter how much they want to...

    The economic recession and the TV-on-DVD market

    There is one Jetix series (Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go!) on Disney Plus so far, so we might see more Jetix series added in the future, and hopefully in widescreen next time. Most of the cartoon series on Fox Kids were not actually owned by 20th Century Fox, so never going to see those...

    Can a Scooby-Doo cartoon in DTV style work?

    I just want to see a return to when the focus was more on the actual mystery, rather than gimmicks. The Scooby-Doo DTVs from 2010 - 2013 were the last movies, that still managed to do that,.

    Can a Scooby-Doo cartoon in DTV style work?

    I would like to see a return of the style in 'What's New Scooby-Doo', or the earlier DTVs of that era, or these specials, but I don't see it happening. The last special (Scooby-Doo! and the Beach Beastie) was rather bad though, especially over doing the traps aspect. I think Scooby-Doo might as...

    The economic recession and the TV-on-DVD market

    Disney never showed much interest in releasing their cartoon series on DVD, it was not related to the market dying over time. The problem was Disney expected their cartoon series to sell like hot cakes, like their movies, while I expect the cartoon series only sold well enough to cover the...

    Disney+ News & Discussion Thread

    Does anyone know why The Owl House is limited to the USA and UK only? I thought streaming was meant to get rid of these region restrictions. With the Disney channel shutdown in many countries, there is no legal way to watch recent cartoon series, which will only lead to more piracy.

    Are little kids less interested in cartoons about adult human characters?

    Yes, this is the real problem, it seems like all the reboots in particular have to make the characters younger these days. This is one aspect I really miss from cartoon series from the 90s, when there were still adult characters frequently used in cartoon series.

    Super Robot Money Team Hyperforce Go! has been cropped to 4:3 on Disney+ in Australia, did this happen in other regions too? The complete series was produced for widescreen (see article), I can't believe we still aren't getting the true widescreen versions of cartoon series.

    "Legion of Super Heroes: The Complete Second Season" DVD Talkback (Spoilers)

    The Lion Guard - News & Discussion Thread

    I just finished the third season of The Lion Guard, and it was really disappointing: Ono loses his sight, and never regains it fully, just in order to add another member to the Lion Guard. They add the most annoying and useless character (Makini) to the main cast for the journey. The scar...

    Wakfu Season 4 Kickstarter

    Cartoon series ruined by toy lines

    Which cartoon series do you think were ruined by been forced to add more characters / vehicles to the series, simply due to the toy lines been expanded over time? I recently watched Dino-Riders, and the Commandos really felt complete out of place, when added to the later episodes.

    How much re-used animation is too much?

    Good examples of re-used animation in other cartoon series, but I really wanted to know how much re-used animation it takes, before it becomes a problem, and ruins a cartoon series for you? I recently finished the New Adventures of Ocean Girl, and the constant re-use of old scenes completely...

    Major DC characters who never got their own cartoon series?

    I never knew a Shazam cartoon series existed, I would love to see it. Why have the Shazam segments from The Kid Super Power Hour with Shazam! never been released on DVD, out of all the DC cartoon series? a release around the time of the Shazam movie would have made sense.
