Tom Cruise sucks but I really did enjoy Edge of Tomorrow

@  Benbot : (02 December 2016 - 03:57 PM)

What? They made a new Mummy movie and cast Tom Cruise? I love Cruise, but isn't he kind of expensive? Kind of stupid to rely on his star power to boost a new franchise instead of...like...good writing? I hope it had both, but I'm not holding my breath.

On the subject of recalcitrant TR voyagers, does anyone else have an issue with Sentinel Prime's legs staying together in space-brick mode?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (30 November 2016 - 04:19 PM)

I was about to say.. I have no problem getting him to stay together in any mode. The horns was the worst thing for me. But I got that fixed.

@  unitremover : (30 November 2016 - 12:26 PM)

...and I just figured that out too

@  unitremover : (30 November 2016 - 12:24 PM)

Oh, hey, I figured it out. Now if I can just find a way to get his upper and lower body to stay pegged together in robot mode I'll be in business.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 November 2016 - 12:12 PM)

Cold showers.

@  unitremover : (30 November 2016 - 12:11 PM)

Alolan baristas say the darndest things

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (30 November 2016 - 08:26 AM)

I like Alpha trion. Just gotta see if his horns will stay down now that I learned the trick.

@  Robowang : (30 November 2016 - 07:55 AM)

Alpha Trion is awesome. Fun transformation, beefy robot mode, sweet sword, amazing headsculpt, and great colors.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 November 2016 - 05:48 AM)

Why? Alpha Trion is pretty cool, even with some flaws. He reminds me of BW2 designs.

@  unitremover : (29 November 2016 - 11:34 PM)

I should've listened to what everybody else said about Alpha Trion and not gotten lured in by the sweet siren call of a new toy evoking Vector Prime

@  Msol : (29 November 2016 - 10:12 PM)

"Petsmart" is actually an example of bad Romanisation that's become entrenched in the fandom.

@  ShadowMan024 : (28 November 2016 - 06:27 PM)

No no no, it's SPELT "Petsmart," but it's pronounced "Throatwobbler Mangrove."

@  Dracula : (28 November 2016 - 06:23 PM)

It's pronounced "I can't go here with my wife because she'll cry when she goes to the cat adoption area"

@  Bass X0 : (28 November 2016 - 05:02 PM)

Is "Petsmart" pronounced, "PetsMart" or "PetSmart"?

Cartoon Planet is back?

So somehow I stumbled into this information...I forget how. But it seems that for the past 2 weeks or so, Cartoon Network has been airing brand new episodes of Cartoon Planet on Friday nights.

Ala the good ol Cartoon Cartoon Fridays, it features 90s to 2000s cartoons such as Dexter's Lab, Courage, Ed, Edd, n Eddy, Flapjack, Chowder, Cow & Chicken, and several others. In between cartoons are skits by Zorak and Brak.


So the point is: This seems awesome. Why was I not told of this?


This seems to tie in with the whole Toonami April fools thing as well (which may be making a comeback).


Thoughts?

I didn't say anything about it because I figured that I'd be the only one here that cared. Also I'm still having a hard time believing they brought the show back, because aside from some new backgrounds, the sketches could honestly belong right alongside the old show. I was the biggest fan of Cartoon Planet back in the day, and I'm seriously thrilled it's back, for realsies!

Luckily, Cartoon Network was nice enough to upload all the sketches from the first episode. (Including the theme song and closing theme, which they use in every episode.)



No luck finding the second episode's sketches yet, though.

QUOTE(DrSpengler @ Apr 8 2012, 03:51 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
Space Ghost isn't in the commercials; is he in the show?

Unfortunately, George Lowe has apparently 'retired' from the role, he's living in Florida and recording bumpers for a rock radio station in Boston. Also they had to re-draw every frame from the old animation in Flash to work in HD, and re-animating Space Ghost and all his mouth movements was way more effort and required way more budget money than they had.

Unfortunately, Rhino Records owns the rights to all of the old Cartoon Planet's old background music, which is why the last two episodes have had songs that aren't...quite as memorable.

But honestly? It's Brak and Zorak being goofy again for the first time since the Brak Show. I'm willing to settle.

Yeah, it's a bummer that only the USA and Latin America know the hilarity that is Space Ghost, Brak, Zorak and Moltar. I highly recommend tracking down the 26 episodes of Cartoon Planet they cobbled together from sketches they used from the earlier format of 'sketches wrapped around old cartoons'. Also the entirety of Space Ghost Coast to Coast is great too.

I should also note Speng, that Lowe will be playing Space Ghost one last time in the yet-to-be-released Aqua Teen movie, but that's apparently the last time he'll play the character. Bummer, but as those sketches showed, you don't really need Space Ghost to make with the funny. (No offense to George, he's hilarious, but I'm just glad to get *something*.)

One of the things I dub about the original Cartoon Planet was that they'd comment on some of the cartoons they reran in-between skits, so it was almost a "kid's Beavis and Butthead", in its own way. I remember in reruns, they'd sometimes cut the cartoons out and do nothing but skits, and the show didn't work as well for me (again, like watching Beavis and Butthead without the music videos).

This stuff looks classic, though, and it's funny to see them basically running cartoons that were brand new when the original Cartoon Planet aired.


I think at some point the series went from being 60 minutes to 30 minutes; that might be why the individual cartoons started getting cut.

That's a bummer. He does those LEGO commercials, but those are probably the only things I've heard him do since he played himself on Aqua Teen (and before that, reprised Space Ghost for the Aqua Teen movie).

Ah well. Brak 'n Zorak are good enough!

Plus he also narrated the Story Mode cutscenes of Punch Time Explosion, where he made a Space Ghost Coast 2 Coast reference at the end.

I'd agree with you if the new material wasn't so damned similar to the original. And hilarious.

They even brought back the squiggly colored text on the black background!

What more could you want? Zorak's prison pod? Mail Bag Day? More songs/jokes about beans?
