Ultimate Zoo (2005– )
9/10
A lost series of good detail
30 March 2011
The zoo, a institution found in cities from Jackson to New York, from London to Beijing, where animals from around the world are kept for study, view by the general public and conservation. To many, the idea of animals being locked behind bars is what zoos are, and it may still be like that in the backwaters of china. However, most zoos aren't like this, instead the animals are kept in habitats much like that of their homelands. These are the exhibits of a zoo, as they are called. However, in this series we go beyond the basic, and we see the truly unique. Perfect rain forests in the center of the mountains, shifting habitats, and much more await you...if you can find the series Um, if you can find it on the web, tell me immediately. Its been ages since I've seen it

A movie for Steve Irwin Fans
30 March 2011
As a fan of Steve Irwin, I was quick to get this movie as soon as I could, and even as a Kid I loved it. It is hilarious, and it sticks to the great and lovable guy that we all loved, Steve Irwin (Moment of silence).......However for those who never saw the show, may want to freshen up on him before watching this feature film. Also of note, notice the Lion intro thing being replaced by a crocodile, the classic examples of conservative rural facing off against liberal laws of the land and large ladies being made fun of and locked up in various predicaments. Though, I have to wonder how a zoo keeper manages to frustrate two agents of the CIA anyway? IF your not a fan of Steve, then you may not find the film to be as enjoyable as it truly should be

A hard to find Jewel
18 October 2010
I remember this cartoon from when I was a kid. Ah, I loved the humor and action blend. To be honest, I always thought that it was a stolen Disney cartoon, if just because some of the things in the show remind me of Stitch.

Rare for a action show, Juniper Lee has a strong female main star, who is not a magic girl, or a desperate flirt.

But other than the fact that you can't find it on Youtube or on DVD that often, it has a relatively static plot line, with few continuous plot lines. Its not Ben 10 Orig, but its a good show, and defiantly better than Ultimate Alien and perhaps Alien Force.

If anyone knows a website with episodes, mind telling me?

A great way to comprehend history
18 October 2010
Warning: Spoilers
These days, people don't pay too much attention to history? Why is that? Who knows really, but this is one way to solve it, a cartoon that can get kids hooked on history early. And no more important than getting hooked, its perhaps the most important history of all in the USA, the American Revolution.

This cartoon has all star voice actors, including Arnold Schwarzenegger, Micheal York and Dustin Hoffman.

However, just being a kid show, some elements, AKA blood and death, are toned down for viewers of young ages, however some "Higher than Barney average" language, themes like religion and slavery, and that time period related views on females, may make you think about showing this to your 8 year old.

Star Wars, the movie to start a series
16 October 2010
Taking a step out of the way of a established pattern is always dangerous. The movie here, for instance, managed to create a plot and introduce new characters in a in between story between the movies 2 and 3. But the movie itself isn't truly in the same flow path as the other Movies, making it something more for the early fan. Say to say, its the more kid friendly star wars movie However, it was the springboard mainly for a new TV series, which is what it may have been more meant for. So if your a fan of the TV Show, a fan of star wars, or are trying to get your children interested in the star wars saga, this is a good movie to break them in with

Ed, Edd n Eddy (1999–2008)
10/10
An Edceptional show
31 January 2010
Warning: Spoilers
Ed Edd N Eddy is the best humor show on Cartoon Network. Its shows that have followed it, Lazlo, Chowder, Gym Partner and Flapjack have failed to capture it truly, the farther down you go.

The carrier of the shows greatness is Ed, the tall and poor scented workhorse. He is the master of humor, with humor runs going from acting like the third person THE CLAW, to creating a curse to unleash a horde of crows upon himself and the fellow eds, having a dream where Johnny was his mother and another where Double D talked in blah blah dribble dribble dribble with the Kankers mutating from overradiated mash potatoes, growing massive, gaining chickens in their armpits that fired lasers that caused things to change to soap and deodorant and the freedom to send literal air kisses at them. Weird people, here my for I am your king

A new Spongebob for Nick
31 January 2010
Warning: Spoilers
Spongebob grows weaker, and nothing strong has come in anytime soon. What else, then Penguins to invade The Penguins are a laugh, their personalities blend yet clash in a funny way, Leader Skipper, Brains Kowalski, Youth Private and just insane Ricco make this show a riot.

The humor in the show is a good laugh, from over exaggerated military operations, to weird experiments this show gives a ranged dosage of humor to its viewers.

It loses points however, because of a lack of a good antagonist. Julian is too lazy and stuck up for a good antagonist and Alice hasn't done anything truly evil. Give them their version of Plankton, and the show will be great. Maybe that Blowhole that Skipper has been talking about

Chowder (2007–2010)
7/10
A step back to Cn grace, but not totally
31 January 2010
Chowder is a funny show, with humor at every turn, but does it have too much humor??? Cartoon Network has have such humor shows before, most known being Ed Edd N Eddy, and Chowder and its sibling show Flapjack are following in its footsteps Chowder is sort of creepy and disturbing at times, and lacks the exact humor that got you watching Ed Edd N Eddy, but its dangerous humor levels is less severe than Flapjack So while it won't be the next Ben 10 or Ed Edd N Eddy or Lazlo, Chowder is helping CN from falling into the toon garbage pile. The positive characters would be Chowder, Snitzel and Truffles, but Mung Daal, Endive and Chesnut weaken its humor with creepyness. But Gazpacho is somewhere in between

Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days (2009 Video Game)
9/10
A Step in the right direction
30 January 2010
Warning: Spoilers
This is a good step in the KH direction 1 We aren't restricted to only play as one character ( Eg Sora, Riku, Roxas) but instead we can play as any of Organization 13, Sora, Donald, Goofy, Riku or King Mickey in Mission Mode 2 Refightable bosses It is just nice to be able to fight bosses like Pete, Guard Armor, Antlion and Saix again and again, if only we could do that in the regular series, to face Barbossa and Scar and Demyx again 3 You are able to play with and against your friends multi player, it would be cool if players could play as Donald, or Mulan or something in the Platform series. I personally wish their were more cutscenes, but still hey its a good buy

FusionFall (2009 Video Game)
9/10
A unique MMO experience
28 January 2010
Cartoon Network Universe, Fusionfall is a game perfect for young players to get into the MMO phase, and what better place then with their favorite CN stars.

What other MMO has your favorite characters, the famous like Ed, Dexter and Ben and the lesser known like Coop, Juniper Lee and Hex gives you missions.

Where else do you get rides from monkeys, or miniature heroes, Nanos assisting you, or fight balls of goo with chicken legs, gum ball cannons and of course, Bonk Sticks!

Have a favorite show? Dress up like Ben Ten, or Coco or a KND operative even, and race around the world.

The graphics are masterfully tailored, with familiar places like Ed Edd N Eddy's cul De Sac, Fosters Home for imaginary friends, well house and the Power Puff girls city hall reconisable but with new twists to them.

The places aren't the only things masterfully designed, the characters have responded well to Anime looks, with Blossom, Dexter, Juniper Lee, Billy and Numbah 5 easily reconizable and looking good. Characters like Ben Tennyson, Samurai Jack and Coop remain basically the same, and then their are the victims, some like Bloo and Princess didn't come out that well, looking like a waling mega ear plug and just creepy respectivaly.

Its still young, so the game functions are still being worked on, and the expansion is coming soon. Also free access in all regions is close, so while it isn't perfect, it could be a new World of Warcraft in the not so far away future

Civilization IV (2005 Video Game)
10/10
Great for all gamers
28 January 2010
A excellent game. It is easy to understand, but challenging to master.

It allows you to customize your own nation through history, and its Worldbuilder function saves you in a pinch. Does your nation evolve into a democracy, a dictatorship? Do the Huns conquer you, or do you conquer them?

However, this game is for patient people, you can't be expecting it to explode quickly. You must be willing to bide your time as your nation grows in strength. Or is it for the impatient? With world builder, you can jump ahead, marines can be played against knights and guns against clubs are possible with this feature

All in all, a great game
