Greatest TV Cartoon Theme Songs #18: Woody Woodpecker

Being one of the oldest cartoons on this list, there were many versions of Woody Woodpecker. In the beginning (1940), Woody was completely insane, as if he had been made from the Daffy Duck mold. He also looked too thin, his beak was long, his feet were large, his face was goofy, and his feathers were the dull Technicolors. Over the years, he was drawn slightly different each time, and he ...

Greatest TV Cartoon Theme Songs #19: G.I. Joe

You just couldn’t get more patriotic in a cartoon than in G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero. The principles of fighting for freedom, never giving up, and always being there to defend our country really resonated with kids in the 80’s. It didn’t hurt that no characters ever seemed to get hurt amongst all that action. To top it off, at the end of every episode, there was a PSA which ...

Greatest TV Cartoon Theme Songs #20: Underdog

Underdog was certainly a formidable hero. Similar to Superman in many respects, he had a reporter girlfriend (Sweet Polly Purebred) and an alter ego (Shoeshine Boy), and he changed into his costume (U on the chest with a cape) in a Phone Booth. He always spoke in rhymes, which made it easy for kids to quote him all the time. His most famous quote is “There’s No Need to Fear, Underdog ...

Voltron Force: Flash Form Go! Review

I’d like to start this week’s review by saying you can thank my son for last Thursday’s Episode (Voltron Force: Episode 8: FlashForm Go!). Obviously, he didn’t write it. And he didn’t do any of the animation… or the voices…or the music…or…you get the picture. But the idea for it came from him and thousands of other Voltron fans out there ...

Nickelodeon’s Voltron Force: Hunkyard Review

Did you ever think, there’s just not enough Hunk in your life? Well, this episode (Voltron Force: Episode 6: Hunkyard) satisfies your Hunk craving. From the old Voltron series of the 80’s to today’s Voltron Force, it seems as though Hunk never got a whole lot of attention. That’s all changed. After this episode, it appears as though Hunk may be the one member of the ...

Voltron Force: Joyride of Doom Interactive Review

The Producers of Voltron Force promised us that Joyride of Doom would be a game-changer in the Voltron Force Series. They weren’t kidding! If you were thinking this is your old Voltron, and/or just rehashed as Voltron Force, you were sadly mistaken about a great many things. Back in 1984, were you able to simultaneously watch Voltron and send tweets back and forth with the Producers of ...

Voltron Force: the Voltron Formula Still Works

After my 8-year-old son and I finished watching NickToons’ Voltron Force (Episode 4: Coran, Coran) on Thursday, he said something to me that was very profound about the show, and true of a lot of shows in general.  He concluded that there is a distinct formula in these shows that is simple, yet effective. (1.) The Evil Villain starts the show by hatching a diabolical plan to put an end ...
