Last week, Disney XD’s amazing reboot of DuckTales up-ended itself with F.O.W.L. being forced into the open. Worse still, they learn that it’s led by a member of Scrooge’s own Board of Directors. That revelation has rocked the Duck Family to its core, and left them a paranoid mess. And when you consider the lengths that Scrooge will go to keep those he loves safe, that’s a recipe for disaster. And nothing but a good time for us.
DuckTales! Season 3, Darkwing Duck Special Review Last year, I said that the debut of the DuckTales! reboot’s version of Darkwing Duck could end up leading to a reboot/spin-off. Then … Continue Reading “Let’s Get Dangerous” Opens Door to Darkwing Duck
I know I’m beating a dead horse by saying that 2020 stinks, but it’s the truth. This year, for mankind as a whole, has stunk! One of the few silver linings (aside from new video games and consoles) is that this year’s been good to animation. And besides The Owl House, one new show I’ll fondly remember from 2020 has to be Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts.
While we won’t be seeing more of the show until 2021, Disney was nice enough to give us one more new episode of Amphibia to tide us over until then. And it’s a Halloween special, to boot! Granted, this won’t be the first time Amphibia has given us episodes that are perfect for the Halloween season. That’s not the point, though. The point is that we got some more Amphibia, and I’m not passing up a chance to review it. That, and I want to give my two cents on the stories being told.
Ahh, the Fountain of Youth; that mythical wellspring of water that’s said to restore the youth of those who drink it, granting nigh immortality. As such, it’s easily one of the most popular tropes found in adventure stories, and a perfect fit for the likes of DuckTales! Especially when you have the likes of Scrooge and Goldie and their love/hate relationship in play in this week’s episode.
Ahh, Halloween. Next to Christmas, it’s the holiday that people in America get into the most, especially when it comes to TV shows. With Halloween specials all but an unspoken tradition, it was only a matter of time before the reboot of DuckTales! did one themselves. And while it won’t make into my list of memorable Halloween episodes, it was still plenty entertaining. But hey, that’s DuckTales!
At the time I’m writing this, it’s only been an hour since the premiere of South Park: the Pandemic Special, and I’m still coming down from the laughter high it gave me. And considering how my highlight from the previous night was seeing the two guys running for President yell at each other, I needed this pick-me-up. All of America needed this pick-me-up. They needed this Pandemic Special, and it largely delivered. It also served as a reminder that this year is the worst since 1968. Now, let’s breakdown what made this Pandemic Special work so well.
More than a year after we last saw her, Penny the Moonlander returns in the new episode of DuckTales! And so does Glomgold!
Good news, everyone: DuckTales is back for more adventures! With The Owl House between Seasons and Amphibia on hiatus, the timing could not be better for me. I needed some sort of cartoon to review, and since I love DuckTales, this is perfect!
Amphibia Season 2, Episode 10 Review If there’s anyone out there who’s not watching Amphibia, then they are doing themselves a great disservice. It’s one of the best cartoons on … Continue Reading Farewell, Newtopia! Amphibia Midseason Finale
In a year where everyone’s lives have been effectively screwed over by the universe, one show will rise up to challenge all the crap 2020 has thrown at mankind. By making us laugh at just how terrible this year has been! Wednesday, September 30th, 2020: South Park returns. And if they can’t save us from this year, then I don’t think anyone can!
Amphibia Season 2, Episode 9A/9B Hey, my fellow fans. It’s that time of the week again when I deliver to you another review for a new episode of Amphibia. This … Continue Reading Remembering the Past on New ‘Amphibia’
Well, everyone, the gang’s finally in Newtopia and all settled in for the next leg of their journey. The good news is that that means we get some more episodes of wacky hijinks in a new setting. The bad news? We have to wait a while for the plot to move forward. The silver lining to it all, though? We got another cute picture of little Anne! Enjoy the adventures in Newtopia!
Remember everything that happened last episode? Eda succumbed to her curse and got captured by Lilith. We got the first appearance of the show’s apparent antagonist, Emperor Belos. And top it all off, we learned Lilith cursed Eda as kids. Everything had led to Luz hitting rock-bottom, but we all knew that she wasn’t going to let Belos win. As a result, we got to see Luz come into her own as a witch this episode. This marks the rise of the Good Witch Luz.
It feels surreal knowing that it’s been five years since Phineas and Ferb took a bow, and now here we are. Now the show’s back, and with a new movie on Disney+, no less! It’s everything that Dan and Swampy promised. In all honesty, it feels like the show never left.
To celebrate the premiere of the new Phineas and Ferb movie today, Phineas and Ferb the Movie: Candace Against the Universe, I’m counting down my favorite episodes of the sho
