Transformers: The Japanese Collection: Headmasters, Super-God Masterforce, Victory

For years, after their initial run in the 1980s, the Transformers only continued in and around Japan. Broken into three individual series (Headmasters, Super-God Masterforce, and Victory) fans in that area were treated to all types of awesome Transformerdom, the likes of which has only escaped to other regions via poor tapes, rips and internet leaks.

Voltron Force: Rogue Trip Review

The name, Dudley, and his grating, retainer-lisped voice, will forever be emblazened in our minds. It’s not that there is anything wrong with that name, per se, but there hasn’t been too many Dudley cartoon characters that have ever been really cool. For instance, there was Dudley Do-Right, a bumbling, clumsy, Canadian Mountie, who always meant well, but never really seemed to be ...

Berbils meet the ThunderCats on Cartoon Network

It’s an awkward meeting at first: the ThunderCats have temporarily lost control of the ThunderTank, and while doing repairs and scouting for food, they encounter an amazing (both in cuteness and in curiousity) group of tiny robot bears known as the Berbils. After helping the Cats repair the ThunderTank, Robear Bill and the rest of the Berbils seek the help of Lion-O, Panthro, Cheetara and ...

Thundercats Brings Back the Robear Berbils

When the modern version of Thundercats was first shown to viewers, a couple of questions seem to have bubbled to the surface; namely, Where’s Lion-O’s annoying sidekick, Snarf? And how are they gonna handle the Robot Teddy Bears? The latter was answered this week with the release of a clip from the episode “Berbils”, which will air on Cartoon Network this Friday, October 28th. ...

Robear Bill and the Berbils invade Panthro’s ThunderTank

With Halloween fast approaching, there’s not much time left to piece together your own Halloween costume. But, hey, maybe you could be a 7 foot tall mutant cat person? Or, better yet, a Bear? …that is also a robot? Robot bears might not be all that popular for trick’or’treaters, but they’re deeply set in the legends of the ThunderCats franchise as the Berbils! ...

The Sword of Omens lost on the ThunderCats The Duelist and The Drifter

On Friday, September 9th (in other words TONIGHT!) Cartoon Network is dishing out an all new episode of their all new ThunderCats series! Even though most of us, whether your fans of the new show or the 1980s ThunderCats, think that Lion-O and the Sword of Omens are inseparable, that doesn’t necessarily mean that enemies aren’t trying to work a wedge between the two. When Lion-O ...

The Ultimate Weapon is M.A.S.K. The Complete Original Series

That’s right, it’s a flying car. As far as I’m concerned, this shouldn’t be an animation at this point – it’s 2011, where’s my real-life flying car! At least I know the folks behind M.A.S.K. understood where I’m coming from! Thankfully, the folks at Hasbro and Shout! Factory do, as well, as they’ve teamed together to release M.A.S.K. The ...
