Princess Bubblegum is equally a monarch, a scientist, and a girl who knows how to get her dress on, and I respect that. I’m still willing to bet that Marceline is around somewhere, sniggering at this. But maybe the leading lady of Adventure Time is to recent of a reference for you? Then check out the rest of Jerome LaMaar‘s cartoons, featuring characters from Sailor Moon, ThunderCats, Jem, and Daria.
We’re no stranger to travel posters for fictional locations, but Dave Perillo’s art sure is charming. Ventur in for more ’80s nostalgia, and then a bunch of stuff that isn’t even a travel poster but that’s cute enough anyway.
Perhaps taking a cue from Nickelodeon and its recent trip down memory lane, Cartoon Network has announced that it will bring some of its old favorites back into its primetime lineup in a block called Cartoon Planet. It also announced its list of returning shows, and one super-hyped reboot didn’t make the cut. ThunderCats was nowhere to be seen. Could it be coming back at another time of the year, taking a Community-style hiatus? Other evidence points to “Snarf.”
Ashley Eckstein, who provides the voice of Ahsoka Tano on Cartoon Network‘s Star Wars: The Clone Wars said that she’s always wanted to cosplay the character, even before she got the gig. So, she went ahead and did that for us. She’s written about her experience on CNN Geek Out! We also urge you to visit the amazing online store that she runs, Her Universe, which specializes in geek apparel for women and girls. Yup. Lots of awesome stuff going on here.
If you thought that The Thundercats already contained enough weird human-animal hybrids, you should see the stuff that didn’t make it past the concept stage. I’m not sure what capacity Crab-Man would have served in the show, but I’m already imagining a dopey laugh for him for when I tickle his feet.
Chilean artist Fabian Ciraolo has depicted the likes of Salvador Dalí, Frida Kahlo and Elizabeth Taylor but he’s also pretty adept at drawing 80s pop-culture icons. Take a gander at his retro-styled versions of Jem, the ThunderCats, She-Ra and more! (There may be a surprise appearance from Captain Planet)
Snarf was actually a really obscure indie rock band from Portland that had really great live shows, but never recorded an album. But you weren’t expected to know that. (at The High Definite via BuzzFeed)
With Cartoon Network’s new Thundercats animated series looming at the end of this month, there has been much excitement, mixed with some trepidation at the thought of yet another ’80s reboot. Well, now you can judge the quality of the new series for yourself, as the first nine minutes and forty-five seconds of it have been released. Watch the clip above, then hit the comments and tell us what you think of the reinterpretation.
Cartoon Network’s ThunderCats reboot won’t grace our television screens until late July, but, there has been an epidemic of ThunderCats mania clawing its way through geekdom. With a sneak-peek of character designs surfacing online, an impressive list of the show’s voice actors popping up and a very rare appearance by everyone’s favorite nunchuck-wielding ThunderCat Panthro performing his cabaret number on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon this week, people can’t seem to wait for this memorable 80s cartoon to make its long overdue comeback.
