A Look At The Hub

Rounding out this week’s look at the main US kids channels is newcomer, The Hub, which if it feels I’ve already covered it, you aren’t far wrong. I recently wrote a post on the channel’s biggest hit, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. The Hub is basicially a reincarnation of Discovery Kids and is a […]

A Look At Nickelodeon

As a joke, I thought about titling the post, “The SpongeBob Channel” but that wouldn’t be completely accurate even if it is uncomfortably close to the truth. The yellow one has done well for the channel and it is still quite hard to believe that he’s been around for a full 10 years. He seems […]

A Look at Cartoon Network

Via: Wikipedia (yes, I’m old school) Today’s the turn of Carton Network, a channel that I used to watch religiously at my friend’s house back it had a lot of Wacky Races on it. There’s a few hardcore folks out there who feel that calling it “Cartoon Network” is now false advertising considering that it […]

A Look At The Disney Channel

Via: TV With Thinus This week, I’m sequestered in lovely Western New York; a quiet part of the country where not a lot happens in the winter because of the snow. So that’s a pefect excuse to stay warm indoors with some TV, and while there is a lot a Top Gear on BBC America, […]

Six Traditional Pieces Christmas Animation

Following on from yesterday’s post, here are some traditional forms of Christmas animation. Christmas means different things for different people. American’s generally rate A Christmas Story as their top film, but it is completely unknown in Europe (a situation that resulted in some near heart attacks in more than one house I’ve visited). Naturally there […]

Four Non-Traditional Pieces of Christmas Animation

Yes, it is the season and coming tomorrow is a list of Six Traditional Pieces of Christmas Animation, but today’s post is about four, non-Traditional pieces of Christmas animation. What could that possibly mean? Well, on TV around Christmas, the normal programming schedules get scrapped in favour of showing films, and lots of them. Less […]

My Life as a Teenage Robot Now on DVD!

All three seasons of one of the most underrated cartoons of the last decade are now on DVD through Amazon. At $19.99, they aren’t the cheapest, but seeing as this show is well overdue for a release and that DVD is in the twilight years of its existence, you should consider it a worthwhile investment. […]

The Atlanta Braves Oppose Pixar’s ‘Brave’ Trademark Application

Hilarious image shamelessly yoinked from Filmdrunk I’m really not quite sure what to make of this. According to /film (who got it from Stitch Kingdom), the Atlanta Braves baseball team have filed an objection to Disney/Pixar’s use of the word “Brave” as a trademark for the upcoming film, Brave. Trademark law make a distinction between […]

TONIGHT IN NYC: It’s The 2011 ASIFA-East Animation Art Auction!

Apologies for the late notice, but while this is an event that I normally attend and willingly part with my hard earned cash in support of a good cause, I unfortunately have a final presentation in class tonight. Seeing as a good chunk of my final grade (and therefore the tuition I coughed up for […]
