I do love how they did the "Death! ...by snu-snu!" scene, with Fry and Brannigan's expressions shifting between horrified and delighted.

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 06:03 PM)

It doesn't matter what color slime NYC has, it's still been covered in slime for its entire existence.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 03:05 PM)

Not to mention the series is getting a reboot this year. In July so none of that junk counts.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 02:32 PM)

Not that kind of slime!!! Has New York ever been pink?! No that city has so much brown that it makes COD look bright and colorful.

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 02:27 PM)

New York's ALWAYS been covered with slime.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 02:21 PM)

Also since New York wasn't covered in slime back in 89 it's quite moot isn't it?

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 02:15 PM)

Stupid ideas that I can't understand why we keep bring it up. Are we humans just that desperate to panic ourselves?

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.
Lexicon: still up and running!

Great memories of the old show, though..I remember catching it after school on either TBS or TNT. Can't remember which. I think this was before our cable started to carry Cartoon Network. I used to record the songs onto an old cassette tape icon-fire.gif

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?

The prison pod is just a thing Zorak is in. It isn't that important.

But Zorak not being blasted is just wrong.
