Happy Birthday, Gojira!

Happy Birthday, Gojira!

The one and only King of Monsters, Godzilla, turns 57 today, so bust out the fake cardboard buildings and miniature tanks and go on a destructive and messy stomping spree in honor of the Big G. If you have access to radioactive breath, feel free to use it as well, since it’s one of Godzilla’s defining abilities. The first Godzilla movie came out in Japan back in November 3, 1954. From there, Godzilla went on to star in as many as 29 films and in a multitude of cartoon and game spin-offs, with some of them shown overseas, to children that would otherwise not be familiar with the big radioactive lizard. Not even James Bond, who’s only had 22 movies under his belt, had as much success.

FremantleMedia Enterprises teases a re-imagined Danger Mouse

FremantleMedia Enterprises teases a re-imagined Danger Mouse

Nearly 30 years ago, in 1981, Cosgrove Hall Films and Thames Television teamed to produce an animated version of James Bond, mixed with Danger Man, mixed with … well, a cartoon mouse. The result was the British super hero spy Danger Mouse, whose animated adventures ran for 89 episodes over nearly a dozen years in the United Kingdom, as well as becoming one of the first cartoons to hit Nickelodeon in the United States. As so much time has passed, the property’s current owner, FremantleMedia Enterprises (FME), has decided the world once again needs the heroic protection of DM and his allies Ernest Penfold, Colonel K, Agent 57, and Professor Heinrich Von Squawkencluck. Certainly, this also means bringing back the horror of villainy, such as Baron Silas Greenback, Nero, Stiletto Mafiosa, Leatherhead, Count Duckula, and Grovel. No word yet on if the updated vision will be in CG or not, but until we know for sure, enjoy the original intro

Teletoon at Night adds The Dating Guy, Archer, and Robot Chicken

Teletoon at Night adds The Dating Guy, Archer, and Robot Chicken

Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim has, for years now, brought adults (and either older, or lucky, kids) some of the better evening-time animation. Similarly, Teletoon has it’s own after dark programing they call Teletoon at Night, running from 9pm through the morning. This year, that lineup is getting a nice boost of new toon love. A number of new series will make their debut on the block, siding with some of the genres legends. Three of the recently slotted titles include; The Dating Guy, Archer, and Robot Chicken. The Dating Guy features just that, a guy struggling in the dating world, while Archer is a James Bond-like adventure series of a suave master spy. Robot Chicken is it’s own world, using a mixture of animation styles (from stop motion claymation to CG) to tell wacky stories and adventures. And all to the delight of Teletoon at Night fans, everywhere.

Gnome & Troll: The Forest Trial

Gnome & Troll: The Forest Trial

There’s a new James Bond movie on the way in a few weeks, but it’s the former James Bond we’re talkin’ about today!  Sir Roger Moore has recently joined the cast lending their voices to the animated movie Gnome & Troll: The Forest Trial.  The former Bond will be voicing the role of King Leif, opposite of Peter Stormare as the voice of Ogar Mini.  Stormare was actually originally going to play the King, but was later cast as Ogar.  The Forest Trial is a sequel to Gnome & Troll: The Secret Chamber.  Any fans out there?
