Not to bad, but it could have been better., 22 October 2005
9/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

To Recap, Divatox wants this creature named Larigo to get his key like crystal to bring her groom to be to live. Meanwhile on Earth, the boys are training for the karate tournament while the girls are returning from an softball game. During training, Rocky injures his back and pretty much ends his ranger career. Alpha calls the rangers about Larigo and Justin overheard this and eventually joins them. In the jungle, Tommy and Kat finds him after they fell to the falls to escape an snake. Larigo heals Kat's leg and they head to the chamber. There they first learn about the Turbo Powers and Tommy, Kat, Tanya, and Adam becomes the 1st group of the Turbo Rangers. Eariler, Kim and Jason gets kidnapped by Divatox and she wants to exchange Kim and Jason for Larigo. It turn's out that they were dummies. Still, the now 5 Turbo Rangers trails Divatox to an island frees their new and old friends. The Turbo Megazord with the rangers in it, fights Marago and wins. And that's all. Overall, I like on how the story lines went to play, and the appearances of Kim and Jason but, the producers could have made it better. And on that note, I give the film an 7 out of 10.

Mel's television swan song, 22 October 2005

Heathcliff was Mel Blanc's final original character and starring role before he continued to reprise Barney Rubble and Mr. Spacely for Hanna Babera and the Looney Tunes for Warner Brothers. It was my favorite series in the late 80's to early 90's. Today it's out on DVD which is good so many others can enjoy Heathcliff and his friends as many times as you want. This was last scene on Bommerang. Even though it was the Ruby/Spears effort their version wasn't bad. But, DIC's effort was and still is far better. therefore if you had to choose only one, the DIC series is your best bet. But the Ruby/Spears series I can also recommend just to see Heathcliff only. Overall, this is an classic series. With one of the highest vote I could give, it's get an 9 out of 10.

Blue Racer's Swan Song, 20 October 2005
8/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

The film begins when the Blue Racer asks on his appearance. After spying an mirror, he realizing that he's an snake. Seeking help, he pays and psychologist who was an owl (voiced by Paul Winchell). The owl asks him on what the Blue Racer wants to be. It turn out that he wanted to be an sheepdog. After several failed attempts, he reads the encyclopedia and learns about sheep. He even catches an wolf in disguise as an sheep and saves an heard. Where he's hired by an sheepdog and helps him guard the heard. This was the last of the Blue Racer shorts and this was good. While this isn't an gem of the DePathe Freleing Enterprise studios, you still get an few laughs out this snake on Bommerang. Final score: an 8 out of 10.

Tom and Jerry's theatrical swan song., 19 October 2005
9/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Besides this was one of the few Ben Washam directed Tom and Jerry shorts, this was the last one from the Chuck Jones era as well. It's pretty good to. In this cartoon, Tom dreams that he chases Jerry but an big dog was clobbering him. Tom awakes and soon chases Jerry. Little does Tom knows however, Jery orders an dog for protection. But don't let the dog's size fool you though, it's bite is an lot worst than its bark. Tom at first doesn't think that the dog is dangerous but he was wrong. Soon Tom tries to get rid of the dog first before he can have Jerry but, all of his plains backfire. Eventually, Tom locks the dog in an safe and hides it but the dog escapes and again clobbers Tom. Finally, Tom gives up and takes sleeping pills to sleep while the dream dog clobbers him once more. Overall, this was one of the best from the Chuck Jones era and the series. For Tom and Jerry fans I highly recommend it as it gets an 9 out of 10.

Hanna Babera flashback short round 2., 18 October 2005
5/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Tom watches various clips of the Hanna Babera directed Tom and Jerry cartoons in order to catch Jerry. He decides to build an trap to get Jerry (from Designs of Jerry)or something like that, anyway in an couple of scenes before the trap was ready, Jerry was eating popcorn to enjoy the clips before Tom throws him back to his mouse hole. After the trap was ready, it was sprung but like last time, it failed. Although, the new ending where an flatted Tom tears up the blueprints was funny, overall though the short was OK. Don't get me wrong, it was good to see the Hanna Babera cartoons again, the film could have been done better. Nevertheless, aside from the clips you should watch another Tom and Jerry cartoon from the same time period or the Hanna Babera cartoons only.

Final score: an 5 out of 10.

One Crooner Toon with an all bird cast., 17 October 2005
8/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

In this film, the lead male bird is an iceman and first stop is at an female bird's home. While she isn't good looking, she still wants him as an husband. Anyway, after an brief chase, he stops at his girlfriend's home and sees her next to the radio listening to Bing Crosby. Katie tells him that she only has eyes for an radio crooner. Felling hurt, he sees the answer to his problem: Professor Mockingbird an imitator. After the professor present his act, the "hero" hires him to sing for Katie. Although she only sees him, we know that it was just Professor Mockingbird in the back of the truck singing. At first it went well, till the professor caught an cold and it all backfire. Later, Katie trades the radio for the professor and an refrigerator. As for the hero, he ends up back to the other bird who asked for ice in the first place. Believe it or not, they got married or at least, we assume they did. Anyway, it wasn't bad but Tex Avery did better later on still though I recommend it for the crooner toon fans but overall, it was good.

Final score: an 8 out of 10.

One of Dietch's best Tom and Jerry shorts., 16 October 2005
7/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

In this picture, the setting is at an Old West town. The local owner of an cheese shop, tells the Sheriff that he's fed up with Jerry stealing his cheeses. He tells the sheriff that either he do something himself or hire someone or can. As an matter of fact the sheriff hires Tom to do the job. In the gunfight since, Tom lost his pants and Jerry laughs. After an chase from Jerry hideout to Rocky's Saloon, Jerry decides to trick Tom by turning out the lights. Eventually, the trick works and Tom gets shot and the chase is on again. As an final act, Tom uses gunpowder to kill Jerry but instead, Tom leads the gunpowder to the Sheriff's office. After the explosion, the sheriff personally escorts Tom out of town and Jerry gets the last of the cheese, ending the short.

Overall, the Dietch era cartoons weren't that good. This one and an few others though are his best. But go for the Hanna Barbera and Chuck Jones cartoons instead. If your want to get into Tom and Jerry. If you like Dietch's work then I recommend it.

Final score: 7 out of 10

Inspector's Swan Song, 4 October 2005
7/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

In the Inspector's last cartoon, he's using an shopping cart to take his groceries home. Then the Narrator gives him the bad news, he stole it. The Inspector tries many times to get rid of it. All of his tries failed. One of his moves was to disguise it as an car and it fooled an officer and gives him an ticket. Another move was to have an train run over it and it to didn't work. He even tries to return it at the end of the film but, set off the alarm and runs. The animation wasn't bad and the gags are OK. However this was the last of the Inspector series and overall the series was funny. As for this short, it was overall good enough to have some funny gags. It gets an 7 out of 10. Worth watching on Bommerang's Pink Panther show.

one of the best blue racer cartoons, 15 September 2005
9/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This was the first Blue Racer cartoon after the Japanese Beetle left the series. In this film, the Blue Racer is in love but his wife to be has an new boyfriend. Seeking help from an singing bee, the Blue Racer tries to win her heart back. Everything backfires at first but, she soon breaks up with her new boyfriend. Eventually, he finds an new girl friend and when the bee tries to help the Racer's old girlfriend, he was clobbered. All of the Blue Racer cartoons are on Boomerang and it's one of the best of the series. I strongly recommend it for this hard to find series. For now, it's just on Boomerang during it's Pink Panther show and it's one of the best series of the show. Therefore, it's get an 9 out of 10.

Early Popeye cartoon, 1 September 2005
6/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

While it's the second film in Popeye series, it takes us to Mexico where Popeye buys Olive one flower. Then he arrives at the saloon where Olive is and watches her dance, and gets her feet caught in several vases. He gave her flower and leaves. Then Bluto arrives and causes trouble at the saloon. Although Popeye defeats Bluto's henchman, Bluto sneaks up to Olive's dressing room and she stalls him till Popeye arrives. Popeye eats his spinach but no music to announce it. Then sends Bluto around the world with one punch and he is the victor. Overall, for an early Popeye film, it wasn't bad, but then it wasn't that good of an cartoon but I still recommend it for those Popeye fans of all ages. However, its an okay cartoon.

An 6 out of 10
