Garfield and Friends
Here's another cartoon from my youth that thankfully retains a lot of its humorous punch.  Garfield and Friends was such a delight to watch, especially for the fact that Garfield was such a lazy, selfish prick that loved annoying Odie and John.      It's a shame that I didn't get the DVD sets of the show when they were still in print.

Super Mario Bros. Super Show
While not quite as bad as The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3, the Super Mario Bros. Super Show was really lame.  The live-action segments with Captain Lou Albano and Danny Wells as Mario and Luigi were mildly amusing at times, but it's too clear that with the cartoon segments, there wasn't much effort put into anything.      I like to use cartoons such as this to …

Care Bears
Uuuuugggghhhhhhh.   I don't know how this sugary crap has lasted over 30 years.  Hell, the few times I saw the Care Bears back when I was three or four years-old, I thought it was saccarine shit.  As a 24 year-old fan of death metal, R-rated 80's action movies, and gruesome videogames, if I tried to watch this crap now, I'd probably go into diabetic shock …

Alvin and the Chipmunks
Alvin and the Chipmunks was a ubiquitous show in my childhood years - more there than memorable. I tolerated it, but if there was something else on, my favored option was almost always the other thing. The adventures of Alvin, Simon, and Theodore just didn't excite me very much, and I wasn't overly fond of their pop music remakes.

Alvin and the Chipmunks
When I was a little kid, I thought Alvin and the Chipmunks was mildly amusing at best. Now as an adult, I cringe like mad whenever I hear their irritating voices and uninspired covers of popular songs. Strangely enough, I peeve off a lot of people around Christmastime whenever I tell them I hate that "iconic" Alvin and the Chipmunks Christmas song whenever it's played on the radio.   …
reviewed Bloody Girls triple feature. November 08, 2011
Bloody Girls triple feature
Much like Blue Underground and Anchor Bay Shriek Show/Media Blasters takes a good deal of time and effort in restoring obscure movies to DVD.  This triple feature/pack focuses on 1980 horror films featuring “damsels in distress”.  The movies range from great to somewhat disappointing.       “Girls Nite Out”       I …
reviewed Final Exam. November 08, 2011
Final Exam
As a huge fan of 1980 horror/slasher films I was very, very eager to watch “Final Exam”.  I had heard so much about it, both good and bad things.  In addition, I had seen the trailer/preview on other DVD releases but wasn’t able to get my hands on it.  The only DVD available at the time was out of print and being sold at a hefty price.  Adding insult to injury, …
posted a Quick Tip about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. September 15, 2011
TMNT
I watched this show all the time when I was an adult and watching two boys around 10. They loved the show and when I would talk to them about it I was caught up in the action and the dialog. Looking back, it comes across as silly but at that time is was an interesting novelty.

TMNT
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turltes, oh yeah.  A cult PHENOMENON in the late 80's that lasts, till pretty much now I'll be honest.  It started as an underground comic, had a mini series cartoon that grew into one of the most popular cartoons at the time, a second comic that was tied in with this show, three live action movies, a CGI movie later along with another cartoon series and MERCHANDIZING!!  …
answered a question. June 04, 2011
Starscream is, was, and always will be my favorite Transformer. If I had to choose an Autobot, it would be a toss-up between Optimus Prime and Mirage.

Optimus Prime kicks A$$!
answered a question. June 02, 2011
Easily Sigourney Weaver in "Aliens"
answered a question. June 02, 2011
No doubt it was "Aliens"

Dungeons & Dragons: The Complete Animated Series
One of the best cartoon series ever produced in the 80's in my opinion.

Star Wars Animated Adventures - Ewoks (The Haunted
I vaguely remember these cartoons. I know I enjoyed them, I just wish I could remember them better.
posted a Quick Tip about Care Bears. June 01, 2011
Care Bears
Being a boy, I remember seeing Care Bears stuff at school or at friends' houses if they had a sister. I liked them just fine, but was too busy blowing things up with GI JOE and Transformers to really pay much attention to them.
