Celebrate his 30th with Postman Pat The Movie: You Know You're The One

Happy Birthday Postman Pat! As of this month, the Classic Media iconic toon becomes the longest running animated series on the BBC, hitting the ripe old age of 30.

Sonic the Hedgehog 20th anniversary

Sonic the Hedgehog 20th anniversary

It was way back in 1991 when Sega first premiered Sonic the Hedgehog for Sega Genesis. From that moment on, Sonic became the company’s most iconic mascot, knocking Alex Kidd from the title, and never looking back. From his first appearance as a dashboard toy in Rad Mobile, to his Sonic X animated series, battling with Dr. Eggman and Dr. Robotnik, meeting up with Tails and Knuckles, through Sega CD and Dreamcast, the Sonic Storybook series, and more — Sonic has been a blue blur of excitement for over 20 years. It’s no wonder Sega is making big strides for the Hedgehog’s 20th anniversary. Sonic Generations will help get this point across in a big way, as gamers can play through new and classic episodes as Classic Sonic or Modern Sonic. Will you guys be celebrating his big day at your house?

Cartoon Network teams with Hallmark Cards

Cartoon Network teams with Hallmark Cards

Is there a better way to say “I love you” than with the gift of a Ben 10 Ultimate Alien card? OK, maybe that’s not the greatest example to use (or if you’re weird enough, maybe it is!!) but the point remains, we’d love to see more uses for messages portrayed with Cartoon Network characters. That’s why Hallmark Cards and Cartoon Network Enterprises have teamed up to produce a range of everyday and seasonal greeting cards and other party supplies featuring many of your favorite characters. Ben 10, Generator Rex, Adventure Time, Regular Show, Bakugan, and many more of Cartoon Network’s popular icons will appear on everything from thank you notes to balloons. Makes us anxious for our next birthday party!!
