5-Year-Old Interviews Hub Celebrities About Halloween [VIDEO]

Awwwwww

Beyond the Marquee has posted a great video of Lindalee Rose, the lovely little lady who's become our favorite Doctor Who reviewer, speaking with a slew of red carpet stars. She was working the line at The Hub's Halloween Bash, speaking with folks like Martha Stewart and Bill Nye, but then something interesting happened. She asked a few child actors the same question as the adults and they responded...as child actors. They seem to be stuck in that "talk like an adult" format. I thought for sure they'd break for Lindalee! Anyway, she did a fantastic job, as usual! Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

Surprise, Surprise: Right-Wingers Get Upset About The Hub’s Genderswapping Superhero Cartoon

Gender Bendery

Meet Guy Hamdon. He's a 12-year-old wannabe-macho man whose catchphrase is "It's a GUY thing." But when he steals a ring meant for his sister and puts it on as a joke he gets the shock of his young life, as the ring is actually a magic ring that turns its wearer into SheZow, a "a legendary FEMALE superhero who possesses many super powers both physical and in the form of awesome gadgets" and whom Guy can subsequently turn into by saying "You go girl!" SheZow, which airs in the U.S. on The Hub, has already gotten a lot of people talking about its refreshingly unique attitude to gender. But some of the comments haven't been so positive. Look out. Conservative bastion Brietbart News has found out about The Hub's genderswapping kid's show. And they aren't pleased.

Hello Kitty and Kiss are Teaming Up to Make Us an Animated Show

I'll Allow It

There's no doubt that people like to take the distinctive silhouette of Hello Kitty and wrap it in the colors and accessories of other media properties, particularly ones with tones wildly divergent from "cute animal people doing cute things." Sometimes those mashups are even created by Sanrio themselves, like when they created Hello Kitty merchandise in the likeness of each member of the band KISS. And now, as Sanrio partners with KISS and The Hub television channel for Kiss Hello Kitty, a cartoon show, announced today, which is apparently already in production.

A Sneak Peek at the Sabrina the Teenage Witch 50th Anniversary Comic (And the New Sabrina Cartoon)

The Mary Sue Exclusive

Last week it was confirmed that Sabrina the Teenage Witch would return to television, in the form of a new cartoon on The Hub, written by a Buffy writing alumni, in which Sabrina is still a witch... but also spends a healthy amount of time fighting bad guys and hiding her magical powers from the normal world. Blatant cross-pollination stemming form the rise of the superhero in mainstream media? Sure, but dang if I'm not into it. Archie Comics, the conceptual home of the character, is understandably excited, and well they should be! Sabrina turns fifty this month! (Although you wouldn't know it to look at her.) In honor of the occasion, they're putting out a huge digital exclusive comic covering her entire history, and we've got Sabrina's first appearance right here to show from it.

Interview: Christy Marx, Creator of Jem and the Holograms

Interview

Christy Marx has made a name for herself in the writing field. Working on animated series from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to G.I. Joe, video games, comics and more, Ms. Marx proves to be both a talented writer and visionary. Winner of the AWC-WGA Animation Writing Award, affiliated member of Women in Animation, author of her own ‘how-to’ book Writing for Animation, Comics, and Games as well as guest lecturer and workshop instructor on several occasions, Marx’s list of achievements seems endless. As some should know, Marx’s greatest and best known achievement has been being the creator/writer of the popular 80’s animated series Jem and the Holograms. Since its recent re-airing on The Hub, speculation of a possible Jem reboot and movie have surfaced. In order to put some of these rumors to rest it was only right to go to the source: Christy herself. She was kind enough to answer a few questions for The Mary Sue including her affinity for comics, her take on working on Jem and the Holograms, if Hasbro will ever turn it into a movie and some wise words of wisdom to you budding writers. Theresa Romano: How did the concept of Jem and the Holograms come about? Was it a collaborative effort with Hasbro, or was it solely your creation?
