Ten 1980s Cartoons You Probably Don't Remember

26 September 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

There have been a ton of cartoons that have come and gone over the years. Some of them left a mark on the world and became classics, others disappeared into the dark void to be forgotten. I've come up with a list of ten animated series from the 1980s that a lot of you may not remember. Some of you might not even know they existed, but they did. A couple of them were even awesome, but most sucked, which is why they didn't last very long.

InHumanoids

Like He-Man, InHumanoids was an action figure toy line before it became an animated series. The story followed a group of scientist-heroes called Earth Corps, and they battled a trio of subterranean monsters called the Inhumanoids with the help of elemental beings, the Mutores. The series started out as a set of six to seven minute shorts. It eventually got a full-length series, »

12 September 2014 4:02 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Tarzan, the Ape Man star Denny Miller has died, aged 80.

Miller passed away in Las Vegas on Wednesday (September 10) after a long battle with Lou Gehrig's disease, his agent told The Hollywood Reporter.

He famously played the iconic jungle warrior Tarzan in a 1959 remake of Johnny Weissmuller's Tarzan, the Ape Man.

The actor later starred as Duke Shannon in the classic television series Wagon Train from 1961 to 1964.

Miller also had memorable television guest appearances in Have Gun, Will Travel, Gilligan's Island and The Brady Bunch.

He appeared for more than a decade in Gorton's seafood commercials as the yellow-jacketed Gorton's Fisherman as well.

The Post-Apocalyptic Aftermath Is Relentlessly Grim

15 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

The apocalypse is no fun for anyone, but the dreariest possible scenario probably entails being stuck in a house without a functioning toilet and with nine of the dullest people left alive.

That's the situation Peter Engert strands us in with the relentlessly grim and dull Aftermath, an ultra-gloomy variant of Gilligan's Island, which traps its central nonet in a rural cabin. The professor figure keeping them alive (thus prolonging their misery) is young doctor Hunter (C.J. Thomason), who barters his medical expertise for shelter for himself and three hitchhikers he rescues from nuclear explosions. Among the survivors are resigned-to-die Rob (Andre Royo), short-tempered Brad (Edward Furlong) and his very pregnant wife, Angie (Christine Kelly), and sweet-natured El »

Ann B. Davis Dead: 'Brady Bunch' Actress Dies at 88

1 June 2014 2:45 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Lynn Elber, AP Television Writer

Emmy-winning actress Ann B. Davis, who became the country's favorite and most famous housekeeper as the devoted Alice Nelson of "The Brady Bunch," died Sunday at a San Antonio hospital. She was 88.

Bexar County, Texas, medical examiner's investigator Sara Horne said Davis died Sunday morning at University Hospital. Horne said no cause of death was available and that an autopsy was planned Monday.

Bill Frey, a retired bishop and a longtime friend of Davis, said she suffered a fall Saturday at her San Antonio home and never recovered. Frey said Davis had lived with him and his wife, Barbara, since 1976.

More than a decade before scoring as the Bradys' loyal Alice, Davis was the razor-tongued secretary on another stalwart TV sitcom, "The Bob Cummings Show," which brought her two Emmys. Over the years, she also appeared on Broadway and in occasional movies.

Davis considered her ordinary look an asset. »

'Green Acres' is the Place to Be with a Feature Film in Development

5 May 2014 9:05 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Though lately there haven't been as many revivals of 60s TV series on the big screen lately as there were years ago, Lost in Space, The Fugitive, Get Smart and Bewitched all hail from that decade, and coming up we've got new versions of Gilligan's Island and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. in the works. Now another show from the 60s will hit the big screen as Deadline reports the CBS sitcom Green Acres has just been picked up by director Richard L. Bare for a feature film adaptation. Bare is one of the original directors of the TV series, and he's teaming up with Phillip Goldfine and his Hollywood Media Bridge to make it happen. The two producers are looking for a writer and director though, so the project is just in the nascent stages of development. You may know the Green Acres theme song better than the actual series, »

'Green Acres' Is Heading to the Big Screen

2 May 2014 3:45 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Nearly 50 years after it first debuted in 1965, the classic TV series Green Acres is being developed for a feature film and a Broadway play.

Richard L. Bare, who directed 166 of the show's 170 episodes, and Phillip B. Goldfine have acquired the rights to the series, and are seeking a writer and director for the feature adaptation. The producers are also developing a Broadway play based on the hit series.

Green Acres ran for six seasons between 1965 and 1971, starring Eddie Albert and Eva Gabor as a married New York couple who try their hand at farming in the Midwestern community of Hooterville. The show became well-known for its catchy, sing-along opening theme, one-liners and a host of colorful characters.

Richard L. Bare has been trying to revive the hit series for quite some time. Back in 2007, during the Writer's Guild of America strike, the filmmaker was shopping the original scripts to every »

Green Acres Movie Coming to the Big Screen and Possibly Broadway

2 May 2014 2:45 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

If the countryside and farm livin' is the life for you, then Green Acres is probably right up your alley.  You may or may not be happy to know that the 60s television series is now making its way to the big screen, with a possible Broadway adaptation on the way as well.  Property rights to the sitcom that featured a wealthy New York couple moving to the Midwest town of Hooterville were recently acquired by series helmer Richard L. Bare and producer Phillip Goldfine. Green Acres starred Eddie Albert and Eva Gabor as Oliver Wendell and Lisa Douglas, a Manhattan lawyer and his socialite wife respectively.  While the show's humor was derived from the misunderstandings between the well-to-do urbanites and the simple countryfolk, something tells me that approach might not go over so well in today's economic climate.  Hit the jump for more. Deadline reports that Bare and Goldfine »

The 25 best TV opening credit sequences of all-time

6 March 2014 8:08 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Among the many delights of "True Detective," which concludes its first season on Sunday night, has been the show's creepy, evocative opening credits sequence, which juxtaposes mundane imagery with the sort of dark symbols of sex and violence that Rust Cohle and Marty Hart deal with every day. That title sequence continues a long tradition at HBO going all the way back to "Oz" (which had the show's creator Tom Fontana getting tattooed with the show's logo, interspersed with jarring prison imagery), "Sex and the City" (Carrie Bradshaw's fairy princess moment is ruined by a passing bus), "The Sopranos" (Tony takes the long, geographically illogical drive from Manhattan to his suburban Jersey home) and "Six Feet Under" (haunting images of our fragile mortality). Not every HBO show has been great, but you can usually count on them to have a notable opening; "How to Make It In America" was about »

Oscars In Memoriam 2014: Cory Monteith, Dennis Farina, Sarah Jones and more misses

3 March 2014 11:30 AM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Forgetting stars in the Academy Awards "In Memoriam" segment is almost as much a tradition as the fashion and speeches. But which stars missed out on live Oscars broadcast in 2014? Cory Monteith, Dennis Farina, Sarah Jones and Tom Clancy are among those not memorialized on TV.

Thanks to the Internet, the 86th Academy Awards can claim to honor just about everyone in film who died. Still, there's a bit of a slight felt by fans of those deemed unworthy for the telecast. Here are some of the biggest names left out of the video:

Jonathan Winters -- Died: April 11, 2013. Claim to Oscar fame: "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World," "The Russians Are Coming the Russians Are Coming," "The Smurfs"Gary David Goldberg -- Died: June 22, 2013. Claim to Oscar fame: "Must Love Dogs," sitcoms from "Family Ties" to "Spin City"Cory Monteith -- Died: July 13, 2013. Claim to Oscar fame: "Glee, »

Nathan Fillion's favourite TV

The Firefly, Castle and Buffy star on his gogglebox rockers and shockers

Unmissable show?

Game Of Thrones and The Walking Dead. First of all, I love the political intrigue [in Game Of Thrones]. You really have to pay attention. You can't leave the room and fold some laundry and come back in. You have to sit, you have to pay attention, because there's so much going on. And I appreciate that kind of storytelling. Also, I cannot get over the production values.

Earliest TV memory?

I remember a couple of things. I remember that if I walked home at a certain pace I wouldn't miss Gilligan's Island. If I dilly-dallied or walked too slowly it would start without me. I also remember that when I was watching TV with my dad he'd want to watch the ice hockey game and it was on at the same time as The Greatest American Hero, so it »

Who Got Left Out of the In Memoriam Segment at the Oscars?

2 March 2014 10:43 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Every year, for whatever reason, a handful of actors and other film notables who passed away in the previous year miss the cut for the Oscars' annual In Memoriam segment, and 2014 was no exception. The Academy seems to err on the side of not including people who are most notable for their TV work, even if they did do some film work — such as Gilligan's Island's Russell Johnson, Glee's Cory Monteith, All in the Family's Jean Stapleton and The Fresh Prince of Bel Air's James Avery. Also, the producers often edit the package so far in advance that recent deaths do not make it in. But nevertheless, there were a few notable absences that deserved mention. Please add any names we may have missed in the comments section.Dennis Farina  Farina, a former Chicago cop, made his debut in Michael Mann’s 1981 film Thief, and went »
