Tetris: The Animated Series
The folks at Devastator Quarterly have given us the early ’90s Tetris animated series that we never knew we wanted. It’s got it all: A hip-hop theme song, an obligatory human sidekick named Zack, and a wonderfully unnecessary backstory for the anthropomorphized Tetris blocks. In this biting political allegory, the Tetris blocks fled an “evil czar” named Time Limit from an unnamed “frozen land,” and he wants them back to rebuild his magic, sinister wall. Also, the blocks are named “Tom, Lance, Sam, Steph, Reversula S-Block, and schemin’ Lex,” in case you were wondering.
