Samurai Jack

  1. Things We Saw Today: Samurai Jack Teams Up With the Doctor

    Togeher they will take on Daleku, the shape-shifting Master of Darkness.

    Man, if this Redbubble t-shirt were real and the Doctor had given Samurai Jack a lift, that whole "undoing the future that is Aku" thing would have been so much easier.

  2. Samurai Jack Back From The Past in New Comic Series

    Watch out!

    In 2004, the beloved Cartoon Network series Samurai Jack was abruptly cancelled. The time traveling hero was never able to return to his own era and square down with nemesis Aku, leaving the series sadly unresolved. But his saga is finally set to continue in a comic series published by IDW that gives us the fifth season we always wanted.

  3. Power Puff Girls, Dexter’s Lab, Samurai Jack, Johnny Bravo Comics to Surf Wave of ’90s Baby Nostalgia

    Foolish Samurai Warrior

    It's a glorious age for 20-30 somethings: the moment that the culture starts to realize that it's not just your adult tastes that it can cater to, but the tastes that you left behind in childhood and might wish to return to. IDW Comics, they of the absurdly best selling My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic have caught a taste of that nostalgia (okay, so the selling power of that comic can't be placed solely at the feet of nostalgia) and they want more of that sweet, (bitter)sweet memory money.

  4. Things We Saw Today: Batman and Catwoman Star in Ghost

    Things We Saw Today

    This is how Marco D'Alfonso wished DC Women Kicking Ass a happy birthday yesterday, and we had to show you. This picture alone is better than the Broadway musical will ever be, and won't someone please make an animated fan film out of this? Without Batman dying? (via Geek Trooper)

  5. The Fall of Cartoon Network

    Essay

    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.

  6. If You Give A Robot A Lightsaber, He’s Probably Going to Want a Partner To Spar With

    Buckle Buckle Swash Swash

    Okay, so I've seen faster more passionate duels out of seven year olds with cardboard tubes making their own sound effects, and these guys don't even have eyes to worry about poking out. And you know that when you give robots swords, it's only a matter of time before Samurai Jack shows up and gets oil everywhere. But you know what? Rock on, lightsaber fighting robot arms. You're still cooler than movie!General Grievous.

  7. Samurai Jack IRL

    Foolish Samurai Warrior

    Well, maybe not exactly "Samurai Jack IRL."  But if they ever made a theatrical production of the hit Cartoon Network show, it could do worse than to look like this. The performer, Taichi Saotome, is an actor of classical Japanese theater, and has made a name for himself playing the roles of women and bishonen (young, graceful, attractive men).  You don't need to know that to enjoy the video, but I thought it was super interesting, so I subjected you to it.

  8. First Clip of Genndy Tartakovsky’s Sym-Bionic Titan

    After a haitus of more than seven years, Genndy Tartakovsky is finally returning to the realm of television animated series with his new show, Sym-Bionic Titan. As Wired puts it:
    Its sci-fi story of three aliens — plucky princess Ilana, her soldier protector Lance and their level-headed cyborg Octus — hiding out in Illinois from space mutants sounds like child's play. But once they attract intergalactic assassins to Earth, Sym-Bionic Titan instantly transforms into an adult-oriented intergalactic smackdown that levels everything from skyscrapers to military battalions in its action-packed path.
    After Clone Wars and Samurai Jack, we can believe that these simple parts will add up to a mature and visually stunning masterpiece. Video, and a quote that will be of special interest to any fans of the puny samurai warrior, below.

  10. The 15 Best Exercises from Training Montages

    A remake of 1984's Karate Kid comes out this weekend, where the main character learns Kung Fu. We're just as confused as you are, but, we do fondly anticipate one thing: another entry into the long cinema tradition of training montages in action movies, full of kicks, punches, defeat, perhaps a loss of hope, and then comfortingly certain triumph. But the other thing that training montages have to be full of is things that would make even professional personal trainers raise an eyebrow. We've collected fifteen of our favorite training montage exercises, from the ones that made us go: "...what is that even supposed to do?" To the ones that made us go: "WTF THAT IS HARDCORE."
