Watch the John Kricfalusi-created Simpsons couch gag for ‘Treehouse of Horror Xxvi’

26 October 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Over the years, as the Simpsons have grown in popularity and critical acclaim, the show’s couch gags have taken on a life of their own. Running independent of the episodes, and not beholden to any kind of continuity, the couch gags have become a place for numerous individuals to put their own stamp on the Simpsons series, becoming a fertile ground for several reputed artists and animators in the process. With individuals such as Banksy, Guillermo Del Toro, and Justin Roiland leaving their mark previously, last night’s Simpsons episode saw a new entry in the form of John Kricfalusi.

Kricfalusi himself is no stranger to animation, having worked as a writer and character designer on several shows, most notably his own creation Ren and Stimpy, which followed his work on The Jetsons and Fat Albert. Kricfalusi’s couch gag can be seen below.

Jonny Quest movie on the way, Robert Rodriguez directing

26 May 2015 10:56 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Hanna Barbera's Jonny Quest is to be made into a live action movie.

Warner Bros is pressing ahead with a movie based on the Hanna Barbera cartoon Jonny Quest - and it's hired Robert Rodriguez to direct the movie. Rodriguez is penning the screenplay for the movie with regular Pirates Of The Caribbean scribe Terry Rossio. The pair are to rework an earlier draft penned by Dan Mazeau.

Jonny Quest is, of course, the child who goes across the globe alongside his scientist father, bodyguard Race Bannon, and Jonny's chum Hadji. Danger is rarely far away, and Jonny is at the forefront of getting them out of it.

A film version has been in the works for some time, and at one stage Zac Efron was being mooted to start.

The new movie will be live action, and Warner Bros will be hoping that Rodriguez brings the success of »

The Jetsons: Warner Bros presses ahead with new movie

25 January 2015 10:58 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Jetsons are returning to the big screen in animated form, as Warner Bros orders a screenplay.

The last time that The Jetsons arrived in cinemas in a feature didn't quite go to plan. In spite of the involvement of Joseph Barbera, William Hanna and Mel Blanc, it was an underwhelming effort, with a song plonked in the middle of it all that didn't really help. We love The Jetsons, but that film was not a high point.

Effectively the futuristic take on The Flinstones, there's still a lot to like about The Jetsons then, which has become oddly prescient. How many people do you know push a few buttons and then sit down needing a rest?

Anyway, Warner Bros had been toying with a live action movie of The Jetsons for some time now, and we now learn that it's opted to go fully animated. As such, it's hired »

23 January 2015 5:02 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

No longer interested in a live-action version of The Jetsons, Warner Bros. is planning to turn the popular 1960s Hanna-Barbera cartoon sitcom into a feature length animated movie. Matt Lieberman (Dr. Dolittle: Tail to the Chief) will write the script.

It was at one time believed that Warner Bros. was planning to have Kanye West star in a live-action movie, but it's unclear where that rumor came from. Matt Lieberman is starting his screenplay from scratch. He previously worked on a new animated Scooby-Doo movie for the studio, which has been put on the fast track.

The Jetsons premiered in 1962, and served as Hanna Barbera's futuristic answer to The Flintstones. The story follows George Jetson and his family as they make their way through the future with the help of a robotic maid. This will not be the only script Matt Lieberman is currently working on, and he has »
