Review: Scooby Doo! WrestleMania Mystery

5 April 2014 8:48 AM, PDT | | See recent Comicmix news »

Vince McMahon is a certified marketing genius. Always keen to find a new way to reach a new audience, he tied pro wrestling to rock and roll, and in doing so, made it a part of popular culture to a level it hadn’t been since the early days of television.  His knack for cross-promotion has struck gold again, with a crossover between the WWE Superstars and the animated adventures of the Great Dane Detective and the Mystery Inc gang in their newest direct to video movie, Scooby Doo WrestleMania Mystery, out just in time to help promote WrestleMania XXX, coming to your screens this Sunday, April 6.

The voices and likenesses of the current crop of WWE Superstars like John Cena, Triple H, Divas Champion Aj Lee and Santino Marella team up with Scooby and the gang in a fun throwback to the old days of The New Scooby Doo Movies, »

Curious George: Endangered Species?

25 March 2014 12:29 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Count Frank Welker among the number of people who think the world needs more “Curious George.”

Welker is a renowned voice actor who helped create such notable tones as the voice of Fred in the long-running adventures of “Scooby-Doo”; Slimer in a 1980s cartoon reworking of the popular “Ghostbusters” movie; and – would you believe it? – several Smurfs. But he’d like to speak up more on behalf of the inquisitive monkey, whose voice he has provided for the PBS pre-school series since it debuted in 2006.

“I think we all would like to see more production,” said Welker. “It is a show we’re proud of, and the ratings have always been stellar.”

When “Curious George” launched on PBS, it did so with a massive 30-episode order, followed by 20 episodes in its second season. The current cycle, however, consists of only six, as it did last year. It’s not that »

Shout! Factory Delivers Two Transformers Collections Just in Time for Age of Extinction

7 March 2014 12:10 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

With Michael Bay's Transformers: Age of Extinction fresh on everybody's minds, Shout Factory has done what any good business would do. They're releasing something to tide fans over until the movie hits theaters. We get a little taste of two generations of Robots in Disguise with Transformers Prime: Ultimate Bumblebee and Transformers Armada: The Complete Series.

Transformers Prime: Ultimate Bumblebee collects four episodes of the hit television show on one DVD. Everyone's favorite Autobot steps into the spotlight in "Masters and Students," "Operation Bumblebee" Parts I and II, and "Deadlock." Veteran voice actor Frank Welker continues to bring the dedicated metallic hero to life and steals the show from the big man himself, Optimus Prime (voiced by Peter Cullen).

Transformers Armada: The Complete Series delivers all 52 episodes of the show on eight DVDs. After escaping Cybertron, a ship carrying the Mini-Cons is forced to crashland in Earth's solar system. »
