Make it happen, Warner Brothers!
Well, gang, here we are once again. The last blog post of the year, and let me you, this is one year I’m looking forward to see in the rearview mirror. You want to know what I thought about 2022?
Well maybe I wouldn’t go that far, but this year was a rough one. Too often, there have been things happening in real life that left us feeling this way:
And as a result of being sidelined by so much jackassery, we haven’t been able to devote as much time to this site as we would have liked, and we’re not happy about that. This coupled with the fact that at the start of 2022, I was in a really bad place, feeling just a little bit…
So with that, it’s time to bury 2022 into the cold, cold ground and look ahead to 2023. I’m cautiously optimistic.
Overall, we don’t have a whole lot of new stuff to announce now (of course, that could change at any time. We’ll keep you posted). The main thing that we’d like to do is make the giant leap from blogging to video production. There are a few things coming down the pike, if we get the time and space to sit down and work on them. Damon’s Pop Dream for Animal Jam and my What The Funny for Regular Show may resume. Initially, we put them on hold because in case we wanted to continue them in video form. Speaking of WTF, Damon and I have considered doing another What The Funny miniseries for WB’s Jellystone!
One good thing about this prospect is that with both of us working on a miniseries together, we should get it completed in half the time. As previously noted, now these 2 miniseries are semi-regular or recurring thing here, we won’t be numbering the individual entries anymore.
Also, as Damon mentioned in an earlier blog post, there will be some more posts that don’t fall into any particular category. They’ll just be stuff that we want to talk about that we do for our own amusement.
Overall, hopefully, there will be more activity here in 2023. It would be nice if maybe we could finally be able to switch to video format next year (fingers crossed).
So see ya, 2022. You won’t be missed. Here’s looking forward to another 12 months of nonsense. Happy New Year, everyone!
Today’s recommended listening: “Rainbows in My Head” by Richard Myhill
Can you dig it? I knew that you could.
I don’t like this show’s take on The Banana Splits. I, like many, I presume, was initially stoked when I found out that The Banana Splits were going to be characters on Jellystone!, but unfortunately, their portrayal here leaves something to be desired.
Fleagle doesn’t have his signature lisp. Drooper doesn’t speak with his signature southern drawl (which was based on that of Monkee’s member Mike Nesmith, btw). And most importantly, The Banana Splits are NOT villains! The Jellystone! characters neither sound nor act anything like the Banana Splits that we know and love. These are just 4 guys who look like The Banana Splits.
These are the real Banana Splits; goofy, fun-loving musicians who sing, dance, tell corny jokes and fall down a lot. That’s how the Splits should have been portrayed on Jellystone. The portrayal of the Splits is one of the few blemishes on an otherwise OK show.
Looks like I’ll have to wait a little longer for the triumphant return of the Ant Hill Mob.
Unless you’ve been living in a remote log cabin in the woods somewhere, you’ve undoubtedly heard about Warner Bros. new video fighting game Multiversus.
The game is still early, but the first character roster has been revealed, and we think that the lineup is pretty good.
However, we feel that this lineup is, shall we say, a tad incomplete. The official Multiversus website says that more characters will be revealed soon, but in the meantime, we’d like to list some of the characters that we would add to the Multiversus roster. Let’s go, man, go!
So far, we’ve got Bugs Bunny and Taz, which is great, but there needs to be more. There are too many awesome Looney Tunes characters for there to only be 2 in this game.
And also, Yosemite Sam.
Here’s a kooky thought: why not add Granny as a wild card?
DETECTIVE COMICS (DC)
So far, we’ve got the Trinity (Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman) and Harley Quinn. Nice, but there should be more.
There is a rumor that Fred Flintstone may show up in Multiversus, and if that’s true, yeah, we get it. The Flintstones is iconic. But personally, if we’re going to have an H-B caveman in this game, We’d rather have Captain Caveman.
And hey, since Multiversus is technically a fighting game, why not throw in Hong Kong Phooey?
One more thing. I suspect that we’ll get more members of Mysteries Inc. somewhere down the line, but I think that it’s ridiculous that Shaggy and Velma made it to this game before Scooby Doo, so let’s rectify that.
So far, on the Cartoon Network side, we’ve got Finn and Jake from Adventure Time, Garnet and Steven Universe from, well, Steven Universe. Not bad, but there needs to be more.
I don’t think that I need to explain why the Powerpuff Girls should be in Multiversus. They were originally called The Whoop-Ass Girls. ‘Nuff said.
I also think that this game should have Dexter as a playable character.
I’d also add Mordecai and Rigby from Regular Show.
An obvious choice from Cartoon Network’s roster would be Ben Tennyson, aka Ben 10.
