ToonOlympics Opening Ceremonies

LET THE MATCH BEGIN!

USA's Ben 10: Ultimate Alien

Ben 10: Ultimate Alien (USA)

Ben 10: Ultimate Alien is an American animated television series – the third incarnation of Cartoon Network’s Ben 10 franchise created by team “Man of Action” (a group consisting of Duncan Rouleau, Joe Casey, Joe Kelly, and Steven T. Seagle), and produced by Cartoon Network Studios.

The plot follows on from Ben 10: Alien Force; set one year after the events of the last series. The Omnitrix has been destroyed, and Ben must learn to master the secrets of the new Ultimatrix, a gauntlet-like version of the old Omnitrix that not only gives him access to all of his original powers and abilities, but also allows him to evolve his alien forms into even stronger and more powerful versions (called “ultimate forms”).

However, in the premiere episode, “Fame”, a young ten-year-old fan named Jimmy Jones deduces Ben’s secret identity and reveals it to the world. Ben becomes an overnight celebrity, hailed by kids as a hero but distrusted by most adults as a possible threat. With Gwen, Kevin, Julie, and Grandpa Max still at his side, Ben continues to battle alien threats to the galaxy, including finding five aliens that were attacked and kidnapped by an Osmosian villain named Aggregor. Their names were Bivalvan, Galapegus, P’andor, Andreas, and Ra’ad. After Aggregor captured and fused with all five aliens, he began searching for the Map of Infinity to go to the Forge of Creation and absorb the vastly limitless God/cosmic-like powers of Celestialsapiens.

Later Kevin becomes once again a main antagonist to the Ben 10 series after he is forced to absorb energy from the Ultimatrix and goes insane with tremendous energy and power, but is shown that he does still have a good human heart, and still does care, and that he has not gone completely evil. Kevin is eventually returned to normal and Aggregor’s actions are reversed.
The second season features more self-contained stories rather than employing an overall storyline, although a real storyline is developing with the appearance of the mysterious but dangerous Sir George and the extra-dimensional demon called “Diagon”.

After the defeat of Vilgax who absorbed the powers of Diagon to become more powerful, Azmuth appears to ask Ben to give his sword and the Ultimatrix back, giving Ben the new & improved version of the omnitrix.

Characters

The Good Guys:
Benjamin “Ben” Kirby Tennyson (Voiced by Yuri Lowenthal) – At sixteen years old, Ben now wields the immensely strong and powerful Ultimatrix. After his identity was revealed, children and teenagers adore him, while adults view him with suspicion. Due to his intense fame, he comes off as a little cocky and rude in the first few episodes. However, in this series, Ben is in places he has never been before; such as the “Forge of Creation”.

Gwendolyn “Gwen” Catherine Tennyson (Voiced by Ashley Johnson) – At sixteen years old, Gwen is still the level-headed one of the superpowered trio. Continuing to refine the use of both her natural Anodite and magical powers, which both appear to have greatly strengthened and magnified over the past year, Gwen is shown to be a valued member of the team. She also shows deep romantic affection and infatuation towards Kevin.

Kevin Ethan Levin (Voiced by Greg Cipes) – At seventeen years old, Kevin continues to be the arrogant and trouble-making member of the group. Despite questionable antics, Kevin excels far more often, proving to be a true and loyal friend now that he has learned from his past mistakes. After his Omnitrix mutation was cured, Kevin regained his original Osmosian powers and abilities to absorb all numerous types of energy and matter. He can copy any matter he absorbs into an armor. Moreover, learning from his experience, Kevin is also able to temporarily absorb extra mass to greatly strengthen and augment his powers and abilities even further and shapeshift his limbs into makeshift tools and weapons. He can also morph or fuse together the object he absorbed, and he is shown to be able to temporarily transform an object into any matter he has absorbed as long as he remains in contact with the object. He now owns a modified Plumber spaceship in addition to his car.

The Bad Guys:
Aggregor (Voiced by John DiMaggio) – A mysterious Osmosian who kidnapped five aliens (Bivalvan, Andreas, P’andor, Ra’ad, and Galapagus) from the Andromeda Galaxy, who then escaped from his ship to Earth. Now he is hunting them down one by one, intent on draining their powers to obtain what he calls “the ultimate prize” which eventually turns him into Ultimate Aggregor. Aggregor currently serves as the main antagonist in season 1, searching for the Map of Infinity which can give the user its power to travel anywhere in seventeen dimensions. In “The Forge of Creation” he is defeated by Kevin Levin who absorbs all of the abilities of the five aliens. It’s confirmed that Aggregor was arrested by the Plumbers after the two-part first season finale “Absolute Power”.

Diagon (Voiced by John DiMaggio) – An extradimensional squid-like alien who has enslaved 100 dimensions. He tried to enslave Earth and the universe at large but was sealed away by the first knight Sir George after he cut out the beast’s heart. In the episode “The Creature From Beyond”, after Forever Knight Sir Reginald drilled a small crack through the seal, The Diagon sends a Lucubra into Earth to enslave a few humans who of which formed the Flame Keeper’s Circle while under The Diagon’s influence.

Vilgax (Voiced by James Remar) – Vilgax returns as Ben’s main enemy again. He pretends to serve Diagon so that he can gain all of Diagon’s powers.

Here is a partial episode of Ben 10: Ultimate Alien (Episode 21 The Transmogrification of Eunice ):

Italy's Huntik: Secrets & Seekers

Huntik: Secrets & Seekers (ITALY)

Huntik: Secrets & Seekers is an Italian-based, animated series which was created and directed by Iginio Straffi. Huntik is an action-adventure comedy about a group of Seekers traveling around the globe in search of ancient Amulets that can produce different types of monsters.

Long before our time, humanity fought against an evil of unimaginable power. The darkness was broken only by the Seekers, humans able to invoke legendary creatures -the Titans -into their own plane of existence. With the Titans executing their every order, the first Seekers fought against the dark forces of the underworld and against themselves. Centuries went by, and one by one, the Titans were hidden; some were buried following grueling battles, while others were merely forgotten as time passed. The magical and powerful creatures lie hidden and dormant in the most remote parts of the universe, waiting to be awoken by a new group of Seekers.

After centuries passed, the Seekers divided themselves into groups in order to find traces and clues of past and extinct populations in order to reveal the mystery of the Titans. One such division, The Huntik Foundation, travels in search of these answers: from the tip of South America to Europe; from North America to the African terrains. Only the most worthy of Seekers are able to invoke the Titans and benefit from their unbelievable powers. But there are those who plot in the shadows: a secret organization, led by the The Professor, is another division of Seekers and wants to possess the Titans’ powers for their own evil plans.

Characters

Lok Lambert is the main character of the Huntik television series. He is the son of legendary Seekers, Eathon and Sandra Lambert. He is voiced by Yuri Lowenthal during season 1 and Drew Aaron in season 2 in the English version. Alessio Nissolino provides his voice in the original Italian.

Sophie Casterwill, also known as Sophie Casterville in the Italian version, is the best friend and classmate of Lok Lambert. She particularly enjoys reading books, and has an excellent memory for myths and legends. As one of the last surviving noble of the Casterwill family, she has been raised from birth to be a Seeker. She is not actually part of The Huntik Foundation, but they have an alliance based on the need to fight evil. When talking gets nowhere, Sophie Casterwill uses powerful attack and defense magic along with Mighty Sabriel, an elegant Titan that favors speed over brawn.

As the top Operative of the Huntik Foundation, Dante Vale is the king of treasure hunters. With the mind of a hard-boiled detective, the body of an extreme sports athlete and the nerves of a cowboy gunslinger at High Noon, Dante leads the team of Lok Lambert, Sophie Casterwill, and Zhalia Moon. Along with his signature Titan, the powerful Caliban, Dante Vale has played an enormous role in several major events in the modern Seeker world.

Zhalia Moon is like an elegant lone wolf; she is a witty, yet reserved lady who had an ongoing bitterness with fellow hero Sophie Casterwill. Zhalia Moon was once a rival of Dante’s team, but she later decided to join them instead. An orphan, her troubled past is initially shrouded in mystery. She had a connection to The Organization, but she shows no sign of betraying our heroes. Additionally, her developing feelings for Dante Vale may be causing her to question her loyalties. Her signature titan is Gareon.

Den Fears is a boy that used to live in the orphanage where Zhalia Moon previously grew up. Den is forced to become part of the Bloodspiral; however he is a good Seeker and despite his hatred of bullies at the orphanage, does not bond to the Marauder that Tantras gave him. His brother, Harrison Fears, is an important Silent Soldier of the Bloodspiral Brotherhood. Both are marked with the Bloodspiral brand. Den escaped and, aided by the same Zhalia from the orphange, entered the Huntik Foundation after bonding to Vigilante. Den was sort of a replacement of Zhalia when she infiltrated the Bloodspiral Brotherhood, so the team could still be composed of four people.

Originally aired: January 3, 2009

ToonOlympics Opening Ceremonies

LET THE SECOND ROUND BEGIN!

USA's The Legend of Korra

The Legend of Korra

The Legend of Korra is an American television series set in the Avatar universe as a spin-off of Avatar: The Last Airbender. The premiere aired on Nickelodeon on April 14, 2012. However, the first two episodes were first released online on March 24–25, 2012 and were available in high-definition for free on iTunes. The series is currently under production and is expected to run for two seasons, spanning four books, and a total of fifty-two episodes. The co-creators of the original series, Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, will personally write all of the episodes to allow for a tighter storyline.

The new series takes place seventy years after the end of the Avatar: The Last Airbender story arc with new characters and settings. The protagonist of the new series, Korra, the Avatar after Aang, is a hot-headed and rebellious young woman from the Southern Water Tribe who is “ready to take on the world”. The series will follow Korra as she faces an Anti-bending Revolution while mastering the art of airbending from Aang and Katara’s son, Tenzin.

At present time, seventy years after the end of the Hundred Year War, Korra, a rebellious seventeen year-old girl is set to complete her training and fulfill her role as the Avatar. She has already mastered waterbending, earthbending, and firebending by then. At the beginning of the series, Korra travels to Republic City and starts her airbending training with Tenzin.

However, Republic City is not what Korra imagined it to be. Anti-benders called “Equalists”, who oppose the arts of bending, utilize techniques such as chi blocking to further their goals of revolution, led by Amon. Korra must fight rampant crime and the Anti-bending Revolution, assisted by two brothers, Mako, a firebender, and Bolin, an earthbender. She is also joined by her animal guide, Naga, and the Metalbending Police Force of Republic City, who are led by Toph’s daughter, Lin Beifong.

Characters

Korra (Voiced by Janet Varney) is the Avatar immediately succeeding Aang and the main protagonist of the series. She is a talented bender, eager to learn. Hotheaded and rebellious, Korra relishes her role as “The Chosen One”. She also has a polar bear dog named Naga as her animal guide.

Mako (Voiced by David Faustino) is a firebender who grew up on the streets of Republic City with his younger brother Bolin, who introduces him to Korra. Tall, lean, and handsome, he is a skilled participant in pro-bending and the captain of the Fire Ferrets, of which Korra and Bolin are members.

Bolin (Voiced by P. J. Byrne) is an earthbender who, along with his brother Mako, becomes friends with Korra. He shares a deep bond with his brother and keeps a fire ferret named Pabu. Bolin is enthusiastic and optimistic and, as a pro-bender, enjoys all the attention he receives from his female fans.

Asami Sato (Voiced by Seychelle Gabriel) is the daughter of Hiroshi Sato. Asami has lived a life of luxury, but despite her fancy clothes and polite manners, she has a tough side. She is an expert driver and has had extensive self-defense training. Asami is a “big fan” of pro-bending.

Tenzin (Voiced by J.K. Simmons) is the youngest son of Aang and Katara and an airbending master. A calm and serious man, he carries a great burden to protect not only Korra, but also Republic City. Tenzin resides on Air Temple Island with his wife, Pema, and his four children, Jinora, Ikki, Meelo, and Rohan.

Lin Beifong (Voiced by Mindy Sterling) leads the Metalbending Police Force of Republic City and is the daughter of Toph Beifong. She is tough and uncompromising, believing that the only way to maintain peace and stability in the city is through the use of military might.

Amon (Voiced by Steve Blum) is the main antagonist of the first season of the series. He is the charismatic and mysterious leader of the Equalists, whose ultimate goal is to create equality through an anti-bending revolution. He wears a mask to conceal his face. A nimble and stealthy fighter, Amon is fearless in facing his opponents, regardless of their bending skills, and also forms a great danger for the benders, being able to take their bending away.

ToonBarn's First Ever ToonOlympics

The First Ever ToonBarn ToonOlympics starts tomorrow! What is the ToonOlympics, you say? We’re glad you asked. During the Month of August, we have 24 cartoons from different countries around the world competing against each other in a single elimination tournament. Just like in the Olympics, these animated shows will go head-to-head against each other, until only one is given the highest honor… the ToonBarn ToonOlympics Gold Medal. Each weekday in August, we will announce the matchup of the day. In the article, you get as much background about each of the 2 cartoons that we can provide. After you taken a good long look at each cartoon, we want you to Vote on which one you think is better. YES! YOU ARE THE JUDGE!

We don’t want to take away ALL the fanfare, though. We’ve brought back an old friend to introduce the competition and all 24 participants. It’s the Opening Ceremonies of the ToonBarn ToonOlympics. Take it away, Harry!

Here is the Single Elimination Bracket we will be using for the 24 Cartoons in the ToonOlympics Competition:

Sidekick is the new hero on Cartoon Network

Working together with Nelvana Limited Productions, YTV Productions, and Corus Entertainment, Cartoon Network is out to show you that sidekicks have every bit as much heart as their super hero partners. And no, this isn’t a promo for Robin and Kid Flash from Young Justice, we’re talking about the new animated series appropriately called Sidekick. Airing beside fellow YTV compadre Almost Naked Animals, the toon follows Eric Needles and his best friend Trevor Troublemeyer, each training to become superheroes at the Academy for Aspiring Sidekicks. The show is getting a nice little boost on the CN, airing new episodes regularly in an effort to gain a following. So do your part to become a fan — a super fan!
