Kickstart This! A Retro-Inspired Sci-Fi Cartoon for Kids - Happi vs Drag

G.I. Joe. Swat Kats. Samurai Pizza Cats. Eto Rangers. Biker Mice from Mars. Street Sharks. Danger Mouse. The cartoons of the 80s and 90s were full of kick-butt action, and rife with martial arts and laser guns. Most of today’s cartoons, well, aren’t. One Kickstarter has arrived to change that – Happi vs Drag. Happi vs Drag features the cybernetically-enhanced animal Agents of Happi working together to kick the butts of the Dragons of Drag before they can take over the planet of New Illinois. Happi, led by the optimist Kylie, depends on teamwork, positive qualities, and overcoming problems, in order to defeat the wicked Admiral Juna Rei Sin and her menagerie of greedy and/or bumbling Soldiers. In the six-minute short that this Kickstarter will...

Looking back at… Sonic the Hedgehog (1993 – 1994)

Luke Owen looks back at Sonic the Hedgehog

During the early 90s, one blue hedgehog ruled pop culture with a string of successful video games for Sega’s flagship Genesis console (or Mega Drive if you’re in the UK). And while we never did get a live-action movie of Sonic the Hedgehog like Nintendo did with their mascot, we did get not one, but two animated shows in the same year. One was a bizarre little romp known as The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog and the other was simply known as Sonic the Hedgehog.

First airing in September 1993, Sonic the Hedgehog ran for 26 episodes over two seasons and had a much darker edge than its child-like counterpart. Where The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog featured bright and bombastic colours and ambiance, Sonic the Hedgehog (or Satam as it’s also known) was gritty, dirty and unlike the games

The 37 worst things the 'Ninja Turtles' franchise has ever created

The 37 worst things the 'Ninja Turtles' franchise has ever created
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle franchise celebrated three decades of existence in May. Like so many 30-year-olds, it’s made a few mistakes along the way. And so, on the occasion of this weekend’s vaguely anticipated, generally feared Michael Bay-ified reboot, here’s a look back across the wide expanse of the Tmnt-verse that seeks to answer one question: What are the 37 worst things this franchise has ever created?

1. The Neutrinos.

Hot-rodding alien hipsters who look like what happens when Grease gets restaged by five-year-olds dressed up as British punk rockers by their sociopathic stage parents. Sample line of dialogue: “Cool?

‘Max Steel’ Images: A Different Man of Steel

It’s a good time to be alive for those who grew up in the eighties and bought a lot of action figures. Love them or hate them, the Transformers and G.I. Joe movies garner big production budgets and attract older fans and younger audiences alike. Hopefully it won’t be too long before the pop culture nostalgia cycle catches up to the 1990s and we finally get the Biker Mice From Mars movie that everyone has been waiting for.

On the other hand, Hollywood might actually have skipped right over into rebooting nostalgic properties from the 21st century, as the first images from the upcoming Max Steel movie have now been released. Not familiar with Max Steel? You’re probably not ...

My First Horror Scream: Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives!

There are many moments in your young life that you will always remember. Your first days at school for example, maybe even your first kiss (it wasn’t very good) and one memory I will never forget; the first time a film genuinely frightened me. The nostalgia of reliving that memory in your head is one of cinematic glory. Much like the time you realise cinema can effectively tug at your heartstrings and drown your face in a hail of tears. As you get older the images in front of you go from real (believing they’re happening in front of you), to the realisation of the cinematic machine (a reproduction of artificial images), until eventually you decide to lose yourself into that same machine that once fooled you. As they say the proof is in the pudding, we need only look back at the seminal Lumiere Brothers ‘Arrival of

Gang of Seven Announces $100m Animated Film Fund

Already boasting a stable of artists that makes other studios green with envy, Gang of Seven Animation (aka G-7 Animation for those of you in the know) will now have a serious pile of scratch to go along with their impressive roster, thanks to a partnership with the Chinese government.

Tom Tataranowicz, a veteran of the animation industry and the big cheese at G-7, dropped the information yesterday, as well as what some of the plans were to do with this funding. Aside from a film reboot of the 90's television series "Biker Mice From Mars," Gang of Seven Animation is also currently working on CGI animated versions of Frankenstein and the graphic novel Freak Show. Legendary illustrator Bernie Wrightson is currently tagged as production designer on the latter project.

It certainly looks like some serious entertainment will be rolling out from G7 Animation in the near future. Stay tuned!

Looking back at Turtles Forever

Matt concludes his celebration of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies with Turtles Forever...

As part of the celebration of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' 25th anniversary, the animated film, Turtles Forever, was produced. Set in the world of the 2003 TV series, the film wasn't so much released as it was carelessly knocked off a shelf and into the world. (My suspicions that the release strategy was planned as an act of revenge by a petulant, bitter Biker Mice From Mars fan are yet to be confirmed.)

After theatrical screenings were cancelled, it was trimmed down and shown on American television, with the full-length version made available for free streaming on the Internet. It was given a particularly clumsy Us DVD release in 2010, featuring the shortened TV edit of the film, presented in the wrong aspect ratio. It's just now been given a release in the UK (with the flaws

Top 10 Weirdest Premises for the Nes

  • GameRant
In its heyday there were over 760 titles released in the Us and Pal regions for the Nintendo Entertainment System, also referred to as the Nes. Many of these games are absolute classics that to this day remain nostalgic keystones in people’s childhoods. Who can forget the first time they hopped on a Goomba in Super Mario Bros., gunned their way through the jungle in Contra or blasted Mother Brain in Metroid? These games, while some not so heavy on story, were crafted in such a way that it didn’t matter that we only had two buttons and a d-pad. We had strongly defined characters in engrossing new worlds with clear elements of mystery and adventure to overcome.

This is a list of some of those games, games where the premise is so strange and the mechanics so unnatural that they’ve either become instant blockbusters or cult classics.

Hughes Brothers, Albert Torres on PG-13 Akira Remake? Tetsu-nooo!

It's been well over two years since we've heard any new news regarding the Leonardo DiCaprio produced, live-action and (*sigh*) Americanized re-imagining of Katsuhiro Otomo's legendary manga, Akira. However, Pajiba.com offers up some new updates on the production which...well, let's just leave it at that, "some new updates."

Apparently in a blink-and-you-would've-missed-it move, The Hughes Brothers, Albert and Allen, are rumored to be in final negotiations to direct the two-part epic, which would be based on the original manga series rather than the more popular 1988 anime film (trust us, although they're the same story, they're two completely different monsters). Adding to that news, it looks like a screenwriter for the production is close to being officially announced -- namely, Albert Torres (according to a report on Collider). If you're reading that name and thinking, "Albert Who?" you're not alone, as his only credit to date is Henry Poole is Here (which,
