I think we should add this, Add this, Add this, Add this, Add this, Add this, Add this, Add this...

Would you stop it with repeating your suggestions azmuth, we heard you the first time, this continued pestering - which I personally consider forum spamming - has got to stop.

Robocop animated vs COPS.

Well Robocop was typical 80's garbage, Cops was okay, ergo Cops wins by default.

Cartoon Network probably pulled one of their more infamous stunts.  A good old fashioned bait and switch.  A new episode of Generator Rex was supposed to be scheduled today.  At the last minute they pull it down and substitute in Lego Ninjago.  I'm beginning to wonder if Generator Rex has been cancelled.  People are burned out about it.  They had better release a box set if that's the case.  I'm boycotting CN from now on.

I've been a loyal fan of The Fox and the Hound since probably The Lion King aired in theaters the first time around(right around the time Disney movies were more available in clamshell VHS).  That's about 17 years, give or take.  The only Disney movie that came close to threatening its crown, oddly enough was The Emperor's New Groove.  Every now and then I like looking for old articles about The Fox and the Hound, or new insights into the movie.  I found this well written review about the new double pack with both the original and the sequel(midquel?), highlighting the contrasts between the two films.  However, it's more of an essay on why the original one worked so well, rather than one on why the sequel didn't.

Alright. I'm thinking I should probably get to work on profiles for Transformers: Prime and G.I. Joe Renegades because I'll admit it... I like these shows.  These two are leagues ahead of their progenitor shows(and Prime being better than every other Transformers show so far is not that hard to accomplish).  I've been keeping track of The Hub's "retro block" as I like to call it, where they show G1 Transformers, G1 G.I. Joe, and Jem(not in that order).  I'm finding Transformers to be...Aww screw sugar coating.  I hate it.  I'm having a great kick watching G.I. Joe, though.  It's still a fun cartoon(glaring military inaccuracies and horrible animation aside).  Renegades had a tougher bar to hurdle with its progenitor show but gave me two things that the original G.I. Joe didn't--convincing firefights and a proper sense of military life, units, and training.

I won't kill myself to watch repeats of either shows. But heck, I won't kill myself to even watch repeats of Adventure Time.  I was initially extremely down on Renegades, especially before it aired when I saw the new "extreme" look of the characters and then when it first got going after I found out about the ranking changes(Duke is a sergeant for example).  Both of these shows have won me over with well done action sequences and a proper sense of suspense.  I'll even go so far to say as these shows are the reboots that Thundercats should've been.

I saw 'The Jungle Book' on its first cinematic realease, when I was four or five. And 'Yellow Submarine' around the same time.  One advantage of being an old fart is challenging people to 'beat that'.

...though I must admit, Fox and Hound is better than either of the below. In fact I've just narrowly talked myself out of buying the first 4 Fox and Hound comics from an American ebay seller.

I agree. On a roll.

(rye, wry, whichever)

BTW, I still can't rate 'My Dog Tulip'. It's at least a 3, though.

Looks like a whole new season of Futurama is set to air later on this year.  I thought that show had been cancelled.

I also saw the most interesting set of episodes.  One was all in black and white and set up to look like an old timey show.  The other one was animated all in pixels.
