Unexpectedly Appropriate Mashup of the Day: Pacific Rim Meets The Powerpuff Girls

If Guillermo del Toro and Genndy Tartakovsky were actually to collaborate on something (like maybe that Samurai Jack movie, huh), I think I might blow a gasket.

The Fall of Cartoon Network

Have you noticed anything different about the programming on Cartoon Network? How about the fact that there’s a dramatic decrease in actual good, quality cartoons?

Before we get right down to the problem, I would like you to jump into my time machine, back to 1994 when Cartoon Network Studios was born. I’m not going to bore you with too many details, but what made Cartoon Network so great was its original programming — overseen by the president of the network, Jim Samples. The What-A-Cartoon! Show premiered in 1995 and showcased a slew of new cartoon ideas, many of which eventually got their own series including Dexter’s Laboratory, Johnny Bravo, Cow and Chicken, The Powerpuff Girls, Courage the Cowardly Dog, and so on.

Foolish Samurai Warrior

Genndy Tartakovsky’s Priest Prologue Most Exciting Thing About Priest So Far

There’s nothing that makes the rest of your movie or video game look less interesting in comparison than a stylized and well animated explanatory prologue or epilogue. Hellboy II, A Series of Unfortunate Events, and Dante’s Inferno, I’m looking at you.

And here’s me thinking it’d be months before I’d get to use the Foolish Samurai Warrior category again. Speaking of which, Mr. Tartakovsky, when’s that Samurai Jack movie happening? You know, the one that J. J. Abrams said he was doing? Sym-Bionic Titan was shiny and all, and you’ll have to find someone to replace Mako and that’ll be really sad, but… we want to know how he gets back to the past.
