In 1994, I was about to be a freshman in high school. Despite being “too old” for cartoons, there wasn’t really anything else on television on Saturday mornings while I was waiting for wrestling to show up on my television screen. I remember most of the cartoons I saw only in the vaguest terms: the creepy face of Louie Anderson’s gargoyle animated child or a screaming purple cat. I know the name of both shows because I looked them up prior to writing this article, but I couldn’t tell you anything about them. However, one show I watched regularly in the mid to late 90s stuck with me well into adulthood, and that’s the 1994-96 animated version of The Tick.

Two decades after their last encounter, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will step foot into the world of Usagi Yojimbo once again this summer for a special once-shot comic from Idw Publishing.
“I had wanted to reunite Usagi and the Tmnt for awhile, but these are not the Turtles that he knew,” said Usagi Yojimbo creator Stan Sakai. “Relationships have to be reestablished, suspicions overcome, and trust earned. The survival of all Japan literally rests on them working as a team.”
“Stan and I both started out the same year, 1984, and here we are still living the dream telling stories with characters we created over three decades ago,” added Kevin Eastman, co-creator of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. “I love the fact that our two creations were intertwined from the beginning and could not be more thrilled that Stan is coming back to tell a new story in the Idw Tmnt comics universe. »

Why the writers credited on a movie are rarely the only ones who put the screenplay together....
The Wizard Of Oz, since its initial release in 1939, has richly deserved its long-cemented status as an all-time classic. A regular resident in the IMDb top 250 films of all time, and a part of many people’s DVD collection, it’s a film that I’d wager more and more people fall in love with each year. Long may that continue.
Lots of brilliant people were involved in bringing The Wizard Of Oz to the big screen. Some terrific writers, too, who came up with a quotable and cherished script. The film’s screenplay is credited to Noel Langley, »
A laid-back, quirky comedic actor, East Coast-born Matty Cardarople grew up entertaining friends and family in Exeter, New Hampshire. After settling in Los Angeles, he studied acting at The Beverly Hills Playhouse and has been studying with Lesly Kahn & Co. for several years. Discovered by actor Owen Wilson, Cardarople has appeared in several films, TV shows, including Netflix original series A Series of Unfortunate Events (streaming now), Drillbit Taylor, Dumb & Dumber To, The Big Sick, recent TV series Selfie and Jurassic World. I caught up with Matty to ask him about his Netflix show and to talk about The Big Sick, which was just bought by Amazon for $12 million at Sundance.
