Video: Joe Tries Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Ice Cream!

I recently was out shopping and stumbled across some new novelty TMNT-inspired ice cream in the frozen food aisle. Obviously, I had to not only buy it, but then record and share my experience with this Shell Shock Surprise flavor! Hit that play button and enjoy!

Daily Cartoon: Jem & The Holograms S02E16 “Trick or Techrat”

Welcome to another Halloween cartoon recap! What a week we’ve had so far, right?! The hits just keep coming and I’m sure they’ll continue today as we check out a chapter from one of my favorite shows ever: Jem and the Holograms!

I’m completely biased here, I love this show. Going back as far as I can remember, I’ve always loved rock bands with female singers and – if anything – this show probably helped form that opinion. I just always thought it was great and “re-discovered” it a few years back when it was up on Netflix.

I mean, it’s competing rock bands battling not only for musical supremacy, but doing shit like sabotaging each other’s vehicles and lives. It’s absolutely bonkers. The Misfits could be trying to run The Holograms off a fucking winding road and cause permanent injury or even death! The stakes of the music industry are more than I ever thought before seeing this show!

This episode from Season 2 is called “Trick or Techrat” and I have absolutely no clue what that’s referencing or what the plot will be which is even better. I love being surprised. So, without further ado, let’s watch some cartoons! Continue reading

Daily Cartoon: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic S02E04 “Luna Eclipsed”

What’s up, everybody? Welcome to another Halloween cartoon recap and I hope you’re strapped in and ready for wildness because I am expanding my horizons today.

I know that this has been a big deal for quite a while now, but I have never seen an episode of My Little Pony. I know there were toys and stuff in the 80s when I was just a young buck with a dime in my pocket and a dream in my heart, but I’d think it’s way more popular in recent years than it was back then.

Yeah, this is the My Little Pony I remember and those toys are basic as fuck. I hope today’s are much better for the sake of those playing with them.

Regardless, I’ve never been a Brony. Not like there’s anything wrong with that: I like plenty of my own weird shit, but I’ve just never branched into this realm. So today, I’ll peep it and see what all the hullabaloo is all about. You can find this on Netflix if you want to watch along and – let’s be serious – why wouldn’t you? Let’s do this, Brutus!

Daily Cartoon: Tiny Toon Adventures S03E15 “The Horror of Slumber Party Mountain”

It’s time for another Halloween episode recap! Yay! Huzzah! Way to go! I can dress myself!

I’m really excited to watching today blog installment. Tiny Toon Adventures was the bee’s knees for a while when I was a kid. It was a fresh take on the Looney Tunes association and felt fresh and new while existing in the same universe as the classic characters. It had a ton of merch, a super popular direct-to-VHS movie and was the subject of one of my favorite Nintendo games of all time!

It was very Super Mario 3ish, but was just oodles of fun!

This series isn’t something I’ve gone back to look at that much, but all of the fond memories make it something to be excited for. I just don’t want to be disappointed. Nahhh…that would be unpossible.

Fire up those Hulu machines and check it out with me. It’s Tiny Toon Adventures and it’s happening….now!

Daily Cartoon: Animaniacs S01E30 “Draculee Draculaa/PhrankenRunt”

Welcome to a fresh new week of Halloween episode recaps! Last week featured some terrific viewing and, hopefully, this week will produce more of the same.

We’ve recapped Animaniacs on this site before, but today we’ll go back and watch their Season 1 Halloween themed episode. This was always a show that I liked a lot when I was younger even though a lot of the jokes went over my head at the time, but when looking back now, have a greater appreciation for how smart the writing was. There’s a lot in here that makes you wonder how they were able to slip certain lines past the censors and get them into a kids show. It’s terrific.

That’s what I’m looking for today. To be entertained and to find something that I know I sure as shit didn’t understand when I was 12, but an older, wiser me thinks is gangbusters. Hit me with it! Continue reading

Daily Cartoon: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles S05E17 “Monsters Among Us”

Welcome to another Halloween episode review as we finally (I think) conclude what has become an epic spooky-season Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles saga.

What I thought was just your run of the mill seasonal installment has turned into a four day time-traveling spectacular with the Turtles making stops in ancient Egypt, middle ages Transylvania, 1800s Germany and now…well we don’t know where they end up going today just yet, but I cannot wait to find out.

The demon villain, Savanti Romero, has assembled his crew of a mummy, werewolf, Dracula and Frankenstein’s monster in his attempt to further his objective of overtaking present day New York City with his gaggle of zombies and monsters. It’s an uphill battle, but the Turtles – aided by their time-traveling pal Renet – never say day, never give up and always give 110%!

So here we are: the thrilling conclusion to a Halloween gone sideways! Continue reading
