Yamcha would be a better President than Trump...

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 January 2017 - 03:06 PM)

Damning with faint praise there.

@  Bass X0 : (23 January 2017 - 03:06 PM)

Kodos would be a better president than Trump.

@  Echowarrior : (23 January 2017 - 02:29 PM)

*whipcrack*

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 January 2017 - 02:23 PM)

Don't blame me! I voted for Kodos!

No, all the evils people voted for in 2016 were known.

@  Rycochet : (23 January 2017 - 09:35 AM)

Didn't people have enough of voting for unknown evils in 2016? Come on, it's so last year.

@  Robowang : (23 January 2017 - 08:49 AM)

woooo Unknown Evil

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 January 2017 - 08:21 AM)

Jinbu has legs that go all the way up.

@  Rycochet : (23 January 2017 - 07:11 AM)

Unless you really like legs that go all the way up to the armpits.

@  Rycochet : (23 January 2017 - 07:11 AM)

I would say repaint Jinbu from Transformers Go, but let's not, they're just awful.

@  Pennpenn : (22 January 2017 - 07:20 AM)

He's samurai themed? Anyway, I meant "samurai themed" in the Bludgeon's Pretender shell sense.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 12:07 PM)

Okay, that got too weird, let's just use the Megazordenny's instead.

@  ▲ndrusi : (21 January 2017 - 09:20 AM)

no, no, not all hope for the characters, all hope for the viewer understanding what the hell is going on.

Isn't that like.. every second spent watching Eva? *hides!*

@  Telly : (21 January 2017 - 02:26 AM)

usually about halfway through, when all hope seems lost

@  Copper Bezel : (21 January 2017 - 02:01 AM)

I understand using Eva to fight monsters, but where does Bob come into it?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 01:29 AM)

Of course we'll need Bob EVAs to fight all these critters...

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2017 - 06:25 PM)

Can the politics stay in P&R? I don't really need an emetic that badly.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2017 - 05:37 PM)

All of Trump's base are stone cold morons, so there's that. Then again, a lot of people would argue that America has nevr been "great", or even when it is there's plenty to bring down it's score.

@  Vexwing : (20 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

A lot of Trump's base would probably claim it stopped being great 8 years ago.

@  Locoman : (20 January 2017 - 03:44 PM)

And today is National Cheese Lover's Day, apparently, so perhaps we should make America grate again while we're at it

@  Bass X0 : (20 January 2017 - 03:43 PM)

How long has it not been great for?

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2017 - 02:34 PM)

Finally, America is great again.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 January 2017 - 12:03 PM)

@  Benbot : (20 January 2017 - 09:44 AM)

Nevermind that. Today is a day to celebrate, because season 2 of Voltron is up on Netflix!

@  ShadowMan024 : (19 January 2017 - 06:51 PM)

Past 8 years? Try "past 241."

@  Xellos : (19 January 2017 - 06:44 PM)

So basically the same as the past 8 years. Guess that works too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2017 - 06:25 PM)

We as a nation either drank too much or not enough. It's difficult to say, really.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 January 2017 - 06:10 PM)

Isn't America being crazy drunk how we got in this situation in the first place?

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

I plan on being very American about every single injustice our new leader perpetrates ("American" of course meaning "annoyed and loud").

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2017 - 02:38 PM)

I plan to just stick my fingers in my ears and pretend I don't hear anything.

@  Bass X0 : (19 January 2017 - 02:26 PM)

I recommend America just get crazy drunk for the next four years. It's the only way you're going to get through them.

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.
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

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?

But Zorak not being blasted is just wrong.
