Turtles Forever Preview is Up and Awesome

Posted 10 years ago by Television

I haven’t really known what to expect with the decades-crossing Turtles Forever special, but now I think I have a much better idea. From this preview it’s obvious that they’re going to be making fun of the 80s series quite a bit, but that’s fine with me. I loved the mutant banana and pizza slices, attacking April side-by-side with some leprechauns, because why not?

I can’t wait to see Shredder, Krang, Bebop, and Rocksteady in this too, it should be a lot of fun!

Now if only we could figure out when we’ll get to see it.

Posted 10 years ago by Television

Transformers DVD Set

As if there wasn’t enough cool stuff to help deplete our checking accounts this year, on October 20th Shout! Factory is releasing a Transformers: 25th Anniversary “Matrix of Leadership” Edition Collector’s Set. It’s going to contain 16 DVDs, 98 restored episodes, a ton of bonus content, voice cast reunions, a 60-page book, Autobot and Decepticon magnets, and more.

This set is a beast. It’s going to be over 38 hours long. It’s going to have archival Hasbro toy commercials, PSAs, art galleries, and even an animated fan film called Transformers: Generations, which is hopefully better than Star Trek Generations.

No word on the cost yet, but we’ll find out closer to October 20th.

X-MEN Volumes 3 and 4 DVD Review

Posted 10 years ago by Television


If there’s one cartoon from my childhood that I had been dying to go back to, but never got around to it, it is definitely X-Men. To me, X-Men was an after-school staple in the 90s. I loved the animation style and the action, as well as the 2-4 part series’ that frequented the show. The series ran from 1992 to 1997, and aired on Fox Kids, and later was syndicated on the Disney XD.

Back in April, Volumes 1 and 2 of X-Men were released on DVD, and last week Disney followed up with Volume 3 and Volume 4.

Peanuts 1960s Collection Review

Posted 11 years ago by Television


I love the Peanuts. The TV specials are classic, and one of the most rewarding nostalgic cartoons to re-watch in adulthood. I own the Peanuts Holiday Collection, but have always wanted the complete collection of Peanuts specials. I was delighted when I received my copy of the Peanuts 1960s Collection.

Warner Brothers has taken all of the specials from the 60s and packaged them in a two disc set that contains:

  • A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965)
  • Charlie Brown’s All-Stars (1966)
  • It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (1966)
  • You’re in Love, Charlie Brown (1967)
  • He’s Your Dog, Charlie Brown (1968)
  • It was a Short Summer, Charlie Brown (1969)
