Cartoon Network acquired from Mattel the rights to broadcast Nelvana-produced "Thomas & Friends: All Engines Go" episodes and specials in the US:
Funny thing is how the Kidscreen article is only partially right. While this will be the first time a WarnerMedia kids network aired "Thomas and Friends" in the United States, Cartoon Network UK/Europe already has broadcasted it (in years 1996-1999) before HIT purchased Gullane.

Oh no we got trouble, Thomas is airing on Cartoon Network, there’s no more steam team, Carly’s moved out of Brendan and now a mobile crane and Diesel’s a good guy. I still think we need Diesel 10 back as the bad guy or better yet we’ll have Thomas to have a rivalry with Boco. Maybe all the vectors, rolling stock and engine to make a comeback and the international vechles like to come to visit sodor including Kenji who’s basis looks like Kana.

Not that much of a Thomas fan, to be honest with you. I remember Thomas when I was a kid, and I used to played the toys and watched some of the episodes of the 80's show on PBS Kids Sprout, but I wasn't really into it.

However, when looking at this new show/season, the art style doesn't look that bad. In fact, I find the new Thomas design pretty adorable. I mean, the show geared towards kids, and I don't have a problem with the show existing. Besides, I'm out of the target demographic of Thomas in general, so anything I said are completely null and void.

Anyways, it's pretty interesting that CN is showcasing Thomas for the first time for a brand new generation. Despite the new Thomas show will get massive backlash from fans(and the cartoon community will used the most cliché comments in the book), it does seems like CN really wants this show to be part of their new preschool lineup in the fall. We'll see how this will stick.

Oh boy the title ends with the word Go. And now that Infinity Train is cancelled many people are gonna blame this reboot for the situation.

Yeah, when it comes to Cartoon Network's reputation when it comes to reboots, this is not too much of a surprise...

Sooo....

Thomas the Tank Engine: All Engine Go premiered on Cartoonito this morning?

Who saw it and what do you think of it?

For me.....

I watched it out of morbid curiosity because I heard a lot of people don't like it when pictures and a trailer came out several months ago.

I thought it was.........wasn't all that great lol

I don't know, I wasn't a huge Thomas fan as a kid. I did remember watching the 80's show on PBS Kids Sprout back in the day, and I do enjoy it at the time, but I wasn't too crazy about it.

I did watched the first four episodes (on mute, don't ask me why) and I cringed almost half of it.

While it's nice to see some of the old characters came back(despite being too fanservice-y), but the new characters are so forgettable and I completely forgot who they are after seeing this show.

Even though I watched this show on mute, I did see some clips after I watching the episodes, and the kid voice acting made me groan. I get the show want to make the Thomas characters younger in order to appeal to the target demographic, but still it does not sound right to me.

Plots? What plots? It's nothing more than just cliche childish kiddie plots. Nuff said.

The biggest biggest biggest thing that I absolutely can't stand this show was the animation style.

When I first saw the teaser of it, I thought it looked fine. When the character moves however, it really throws me off, especially with its fast pacing.

It feels like I'm watching MLP Season 9 in terms of the character animation in the way they moved, they they talked, and the way they express the characters' emotions.

The facial expressions are really really bad. They tried way too hard to give the characters emotions. At least with the classic expressions from the 80's show were unique and memorable. This was just SO WEIRD! Yeah, they're pretty painful to watch.

Finally, I didn't hear the songs since I'm watching the show on mute, but I'm glad I didn't because I don't want hear anymore cringe.

Yeah, I'm not a big fan of the show at all. I don't hate it as everybody else does, it just...didn't really do it for me, and this is coming from who wasn't a big fan of Thomas.

I know it's not made for me and I'm glad some kids get some enjoyment out of it. I wasn't too crazy about it.

HAPPY NATIONAL SPONGEBOB DAY
So a while ago I re-read my completed script for my animated pilot. Needless to say, I don't like it. I'm starting fresh. I have a new idea in mind.
Friday August 19 at 8:00 am can be described as the John Stamos hour since he's doing voice work in the shows that have premieres on the Disney Junior block (Mickey Mouse Funhouse and Spidey And His Amazing Friends). They're even being simulcast on the Disney Junior channel.
Today marks the 5th Year Anniversary of Sonic Mania. As someone who had their introduction to video games through the Sega Genesis Days of Sega's mascot, this game was a dream come true for me and I am hopeful it will receive a sequel some day in the future.
Smiling Friends' Brazil Special is basically Foster's Goes to Europe done right.
