Daily Cartoon: DOUG S04E04 “Doug’s Halloween Adventure”

What’s up everyone and welcome to a Friday Halloween cartoon episode recap!  Today we’re checking out a special episode of Nickelodeon’s Doug which is a big favorite of our double main man, Gomez.

I was never much of a Doug fan. I didn’t have cable when it was first airing and by the time it ended up moving to ABC I was at the age where I was too cool for cartoons so, while I knew it existed, it was never something I’ve ever spent much time getting to know.

I know a lot of people have some fond memories toward this series, but I’ll be stepping in blind to see how Doug and his pals do Halloween. It’s not always the best formula for recapping, but it does allow for plenty of “WTF” moments. Let’s go. Continue reading

Daily Cartoon: Garfield’s Halloween Adventure

Welcome to another Halloween cartoon recap! Today we’re checking out Garfield’s Halloween Adventure from 1985 which is older now than the Adam West Batman series was when I watched it as a kid and still had a future.

This tells you two things:

  1. I am old.
  2. Adam West is dead from being THAT old.

Which isn’t very nice of me to say, but it is true.

I’ve never really been a fan of Garfield. I know a lot of you are and these old specials have some great meaning to you, but, honestly, I just always thought Garfield was an asshole. All cats, pretty much. I don’t like cats. Maybe that’s it. I just don’t like cats.

Wow. That got solved way easier than I thought it would. Who needs therapy when you have a blog?

I don’t really remember this special, actually. I’m very familiar with Garfield’s Christmas one, but this? Not so much. My Mom was and is super into Christmas so she used to make us record all the Christmas specials each year. We had a bunch of VHS scattered around the house back then with everything from Garfield to Rudolph to Yes, Virginia, There Is A Santa Claus. But Halloween? My Mom didn’t put over Halloween like that. Continue reading

Daily Cartoon: Bobby’s World, S01E08: “Night of the Living Pumpkin”

So October may not start until tomorrow, but we’ll jump into the Halloween season today! For the whole month, I’ll be tracking down Halloween episodes or specials of some of your favorite shows and be recapping them right here because everybody loves themes!

Starting us off for this month-long celebration is an episode from Season 1 of Bobby’s World! Back when Howie Mandel still had hair and was in between being under  your bed and opening briefcases he was the creative genius behind Bobby Generic and the world around him.

This show actually ran for seven seasons in the 90s and was hella popular for the depictions of a toddler’s fantasy world.

So why are we starting with this? Honestly: I was pressed for time and this popped up pretty quickly on YouTube. I liked this show as a kid and voila! Here we are. So let’s jump into it! Halloween! Continue reading
