Mel Brooks will take part in Genndy Tartakovsky's Hotel Transylvania 2

26 November 2014 4:08 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Director Genndy Tartakovsky is a popular name among fans of animation, having built a loyal fanbase through shows like The Powerpuff Girls, Dexter's Laboratory, Samurai Jack and the short-lived Star Wars: The Clone Wars mini-series. Tartakovsky seems to be transitioning well (financially, anyway) into the feature-film arena, as Hotel Transylvania brought in over $350 million worldwide. While the man still has that very cool-looking Popeye film coming our way in 2016, right now »

There Was a ‘Dumb and Dumber’ Cartoon and It’s Completely Crazy

17 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

There is a Dumb and Dumber cartoon. It is insane and it demands your attention. This may come as a shock if you weren’t watching animation on ABC in the mid-1990s. It was never exactly well-regarded, or even regarded at all. It was canceled after its first season, which ran from October of 1995 through February of 1996. Harry and Lloyd only managed to gallivant through 13 episodes before they were evicted from the screen until 2003’s ill-begotten prequel and, of course, Dumb and Dumber To. The characters, created by the Farrelly Brothers, have had quite a bizarre franchise history. That said, the Farrelly Brothers were not directly involved with Dumb and Dumber the TV series. It was their co-writer on the original film, Bennett Yellin, who stepped in to write the television series. It was produced by Hanna-Barbera, their last project for ABC. This was an important moment for the storied animation studio, which »

Sony Pictures Teams With Frederator For Series Of 12 Animated Shorts

3 November 2014 7:58 AM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Sony Pictures Animation is about to bring a lot of new content to the Frederator network. The studio has teamed up with Fred Siebert's multi-channel animation network to fund 12 new short films, one of which will be picked up as a full series. The 12 shorts will form an incubator program known as Go! Cartoons, and Frederator is now accepting pitches for the project. The 12 winners will begin to roll out on Frederator's Cartoon Hangover channel beginning in fall 2015, with a new short arriving each month. At the end of that one-year period, the short Frederator and Sony choose to green-light will earn an extended stay on Cartoon Hangover. This is the first time Frederator has used an incubator project to source new material. Several of the studio's most notable TV projects--including The Powerpuff Girls, The Fairly OddParents, and Adventure Time--were born out of incubators. So too was Bee and »

The Amazing World of Gumball: Season One DVD Review

25 October 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Creator: Ben Bocquelet

Stars: Dan Russell, Logan Grove, Kwesi Boakye, Teresa Gallagher, Kerry Shale, Kyla Rae Kowalewski, Sandra Dickinson

Running Time: 138 minutes

Certificate: PG

‘Cartoons aren’t what they used to be…’ is the usual ringing endorsement for the younger generations’ animation. We long for the classics that graced the Cartoon Network channel, such as; Dexter’s Laboratory, The Powerpuff Girls, and Cow and Chicken. So quick we are to sneer at the cartoons on offer nowadays. However, there are few gems to entice an older viewer, the likes of Regular Show, Adventure Time and The Amazing World of Gumball.

From its unique visual concoction of traditional animation, puppets, CGI, 8-bit sprites, or even live action (which is also used for the backdrop of the show), the show is defiantly a treat to watch. The visual textures add dimension and intrigue into a world filled with bright energetic oddball characters. »

The new Volkswagen advert

Even an afternoon at the football with Johnny doesnt pass without another nail hammered into Marks enjoyment coffin

We all have to make compromises, thats what Volkswagen tells us. Take Mark for example, hes making compromises all the time. (Theres no proof that this man is actually called Mark but look at him, hes such a Mark.) Hes got two young kids, lets call them Jenny and Johnny, and now everything in his life is a frustrating look at what he could have won. He has to spend his weekends making sure they stay alive, which means he cant play golf with his mates and he hasnt been to a bar that doesnt also have a soft-play area in four. Long. Years. Its little Jennys fault hes had to put his vinyl into storage and spends weekends watching The Powerpuff Girls before hanging out at the Kids Rulez Kafe (not a real place, »

Turner Relaunching Boomerang as All-Animated Network for Kids, Families

14 October 2014 6:08 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Look out, Fox — there's another player gunning for the “animation domination” position: Turner Broadcasting is rebranding Boomerang as an all-animated kids network chock full of classic and contemporary family cartoons. And why not? Under its ownership, Boomerang boasts the world's largest animation library — including Warner Bros., Hanna-Barbera, Cartoon Network and MGM studios offerings. The new-look channel will feature “Tom and Jerry,” “Looney Tunes,” “The Powerpuff girls” and “Scooby-Doo,” among other classic cartoons. Boomerang, which will have 13 international feeds, will also offer exclusive original content for the first time.

24 Filthy Adult Jokes In Cartoons You Completely Missed As A Kid

4 October 2014 4:23 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Cartoon Network

Remember when Saturday mornings were the best part of the week? Plonking your butt down in front of the TV to indulge in hours of back-to-back cartoons; laughing yourself silly at the squeaky clean jokes from the likes of Dexter’s Laboratory and The Powerpuff Girls. Only, it wasn’t all so innocent. Our young unblemished minds merely skimmed past the sexual innuendos and lewd adults one-liners that somehow sneaked their way in there.

It seems producers of kids cartoons were trying their best to out-do each other in sneaking the most inappropriate gags possible past the censors: Captain Pugwash had a sailor named “Master Bates”; Spider-Man openly slipped in a semen joke; and we somehow managed to overlook Rocko working as a sex-line operator in Rocko’s Modern Life. Turns out, we missed a lot of other things too.

No doubt these gags highly amused – albeit shocked – our parents, »

Film Review: ‘Song of the Sea’

21 September 2014 5:54 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In a worthy follow-up to “The Secret of Kells” (a surprise nominee for the 2010 animated feature Oscar), Moore applies his dazzling hand-drawn style to another tale inspired by Irish legend, only this time, he spins the magic-infused yarn against a present-day backdrop while digging farther back into pre-Pictish rock drawings for visual references. Indie distrib GKids came aboard early, backing this Cartoon Saloon production, a limited-release treasure whose long-term library value similarly hinges on high-profile awards attention.

Whereas American toons tend to be driven predominantly by plot and character, Moore’s work delivers on various other levels, asking formula-fed animation auds to open their minds to a more poetic experience. That said, the pic’s emotional core isn’t so different from that of a studio-made heart-tugger like “Brave.” Here, the story is centered on a lost mother figure — a half-human, half-seal creature known as a “Selkie” — who disappears into the waves one night, »

Tom Kenny's self-actualization about 'Spongebob' and 'Adventure Time' before your very eyes

25 July 2014 1:38 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

San Diego - Come on, kids, check out what Tom Kenny has to say about self-actualization. The famed voice actor behind "Spongebob Squarepants" -- and "The Powerpuff Girls," "CatDog," "Transformers: Animated," "Star Wars: The Clone Wars," "The Boondocks," "Futurama," "Winnie the Pooh" and on and on -- was on hand at San Diego Comic-Con, talking characters and talking like his characters. As the new sequel "The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out of Water" comes down the pipeline, Kenny has been reflecting on his favorite roles. His longtime yellow underwater pal has "huge positivity and being comfortable with who he is." His other favorite? The Ice King, on Cartoon Network's "Adventure Time," who's clouded by "self-loathing... I've never thought about that!" Maybe Kenny should take on Jekyll and Hyde next. Watch the video above to hear what Tom Kenny thinks about all the fans who rush up to him screaming "I'm ready! »

Comic Book Review – Super Secret Crisis War #1

Luke Owen reviews Super Secret Crisis War #1…

The devious demon Aku has called together a League of Extraordinary Villains—composed of malevolent miscreants from different cartoon universes. When their evil robots show up in the world’s of The Powerpuff Girls, Ben 10, Samurai Jack, Dexter’s Laboratory and (even) Ed, Edd and Eddy, it’s up to all these fearless heroes to band together and put an end to the League’s nefarious plot of interdimensional conquest!

Since Marvel’s The Avengers, the idea of crossing franchises over seems to be the new golden ticket to success. Warner Bros. and DC are looking to expand their universe in the next few years kicking off with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and there will always be talk of an X-Men/Fantastic Four crossover. Of course, in comics this is nothing new, but that doesn’t stop a crossover feel like a big event, »

The secret ingredient of 'The Powerpuff Girls': unconditional, sisterly love

18 June 2014 5:05 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Of the four elements that made up the Powerpuff Girls, the superpower-granting Chemical X tends to get top billing. But it’s often forgotten that their show was built on more simple materials.

The Powerpuff Girls, created by Craig McCracken, was the Cartoon Network’s breakout animated hit of the late 90′s and early 2000s. It ran for six seasons and inspired everything from Halloween costumes to lunchboxes. The show’s lasting appeal even led to a 15th-anniversary special this January (with Ringo Starr!) and now, as Variety reports, the promise of a 2016 reboot.

The headlines will inevitably roll out: Girl power is back! »

A 'Scooby-Doo' Reboot Is Coming, So Hide Your Scooby Snacks

17 June 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Ten years after the franchise left theaters, Warner Bros. wants to reboot "Scooby-Doo."

Deadline reports that the studio is "in the early stages" of revamping the series, which first hit theaters with a live-action adaptation in 2002. The hit kiddie flick, which starred Freddie Prinze Jr., Sarah Michelle Gellar, Matthew Lillard, and Linda Cardellini, also spawned a 2004 sequel, "Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed."

Banking on a rehash of that success, WB is looking to relaunch the series with a totally new story. According to Deadline, Randall Green is the man tapped to shepherd the new version of "Scooby."

While "Scooby" may seem like a surprising choice for a reboot, it certainly fits the recent trend of kid-friendly franchises returning to the big and small screens. "The Addams Family" is due for a new animated movie, while TV series "The Powerpuff Girls," "Reading Rainbow," and "The Magic School Bus" are all planning returns, »

Cartoon Network Bringing Back The Powerpuff Girls

17 June 2014 9:12 AM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Fans of the cult classic The Powerpuff Girls will be happy to know Cartoon Network is bring it back. The network announced it is bringing a new generation a new set of stories with a reboot. They claim the request was popular among fans and they could not say no to a chance to enjoy the 3 superheroes again. No word on what they will call the reboot or who will voice the trio yet. It is expected to premier in 2016 and will come full a full rights for all countries and goods.

I am not sure how I feel about this. It seems like both TV and cable networks are trying to find a way to stay on top of it, but they keep going in cycles. These reboots might be getting a little out of hand to say the least. It will be interesting though to see how they approach this reboot. »
