Chaotic folds as trading card games deal 4Kids a bad hand

Five or ten years ago, 4Kids was riding high. The Fox Box was a premiere showcase for toons like Sonic the Hedgehog, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Viva Pinata, Yu-Gi-Oh!, and Pokemon. More importantly, the company was dominating in the field of trading card games. At the height of TCGs, recess across the globe was owned by gauntlets of cards, with kids showing whose monster or dragon or beast ...

Bobby’s World Missing in Animation Toon Flashback

Underwater, the fish don’t stink. It’s not just a statement, it’s a life lesson that could have only come from a single source; Bobby’s World. With that amazing theme, the distinctive voices, and the unlimited story-driven potential of imagination, Bobby’s World was an awesome cartoon. The series boasted nearly a 10 year run on Fox Kids (before there was a ...

Winx Club heads to Nickelodeon (No more CW4Kids or Toonzai?)

After years of Magix on 4Kids television (from FoxBox to 4KidsTV to CW4Kids) it appears that the Winx Club is moving their way over to Nickelodeon. We knew it was coming; the new 4Kids Saturday morning block, dubbed Toonzai, appears to have a lineup solely geared to boys. Now, in an effort to bring the female based iCarly audience to the world of animation, Nickelodeon has big plans for our ...

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles back in theaters, courtesy of Iron Man

It’s been 17 long years since we’ve had a live-action TMNT flick on the big screen. Back in the early 1990s, the films were rapid-fire; Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hit in 1990, the sequel The Secret of the Ooze debuted in 1991, and then Turtles in Time in 1993. Since then, nothing. Sure, there was that cool CG Turtles flick from a few years back, and Turtles Forever, the ...

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles strike a pose for TMNT Comiquettes

With 25 years to their history, there’ve been a number of really cool products based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, from the awesome arcade games to the sweet TMNT-style Snuggie. One particular item that caught our eye (and not with a Nun Chuck) is Sideshow Collectibles’ collection of Turtle Comiquettes – a hybrid word for comic book and maquette (which basically is ...

TheCW4Kids versus Toonzai, the State of the 4Kids Union

Starting this fall, TheCW4Kids is no more. In it’s place, 4Kids Entertainment is launching a re-branded programming block dubbed Toonzai. Promos have already begun airing on The CW Saturday mornings to a number of mixed reviews, largely seemingly tainted against 4Kids. Our question to you; is that fair? 4Kids has been through a number of shakeups of late, and it doesn’t have the ...

4Kids brings Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s: Road to Destiny around the globe

Yu-Gi-Oh! has long since become one of the most popular franchises of all time, launching first as the anime series in Japan. Since debuting in America, the phenomenon exploded, catching on as a trading card game (TCG), video games, books, posters, etc. The series even eventually broke out into sequels and other series, like Yu-Gi-Oh! GX and later Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s. Now, 4Kids ...

4Kids One Piece versus original anime One Piece

Cartoons are sometimes created in one region of the world and later brought to others, making certain changes necessary; impacting different audiences, different beliefs, different languages, etc. It’s not an easy job, especially with us picky fans. 4Kids has been known to famously “Americanize” anime with a manga and Shonen Jump and Toei background, like One Piece, and even ...
