Nickelodeon Releases First ‘Rise of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Trailer

Nickelodeon just released the first trailer for its all-new animated series, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which follows the band of brothers as they discover new powers and encounter a mystical world they never knew existed beneath the streets of New York City. The 2D-animated series, which blends action and comedy and features a dynamic fresh look, debuts later this year on Nickelodeon.

The series stars the voice talent of Omar Miller (Ballers) as Raphael, Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation) as Leonardo, Josh Brener (Silicon Valley) as Donatello, Brandon Mychal Smith (You’re The Worst) as Michelangelo, Kat Graham (The Vampire Diaries) as April O’Neil and Eric Bauza (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) as Splinter. WWE Superstar John Cena lends his voice as villain, Baron Draxum, an alchemist warrior mutant who seeks to turn all of humanity into mutants.

Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reimagines the iconic series and breathes new life into the classic characters, with jagged-shelled Raphael as a snapping turtle, wielding twin tonfas as his weapons; Leonardo as a red-eared slider, using an ōdachi sword; Donatello as a soft-shell turtle, sporting a tech-bo staff; and Michelangelo as a box turtle, arming himself with a kusari-fundo. Along for the adventure is the Turtles’ most trusted ally, April O’Neil, a street savvy native New Yorker, and Splinter, father figure and sensei to the Turtles.

The Turtles also hold distinct personality traits and skills: Raphael, as the oldest and biggest brother, is the leader full of enthusiasm and bravado; Leonardo, the self-professed coolest brother possesses irreverent charm and a rebel heart; Donatello is a mechanical genius and tech wizard whose ninja skills are second only to his coding; and Michelangelo, the youngest brother, is a skateboarder and artist who is wild and imaginative.

The new 26-episode series is co-executive produced by Andy Suriano (character designer, Samurai Jack) and Ant Ward (supervising producer, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) at Nickelodeon in Burbank, Calif. Veteran animation industry voice actor Rob Paulsen is voice directing the series.

Lizard People Are Real According to the Babies in Rugrats #6 Comic

Thanks to Grandpa Lou and his tin foil conspiracy theories, Tommy and the babies have come to the horrifying conclusion that lizard people are real. While Lou was showing Tommy the “evidence” of how the moon landing was fake, Stu and Didi puts a stop to Tommy being sucked into the conspiracy world at such a young age. Stu announces that he’s taking the babies to the golf course, but Lou insists that the golf course is the “classic hangout of the world’s elite aka the reptilian-lizard people”. He also pushed the conspiracy even further by mentioning that the golf course has pyramids and windmills in one place.

While the babies were at the golf course, Tommy tried to convince the others of Grandpa’s claims. At first Chuckie, Phil & Lil were not buying the fact that lizard people are real, but after Tommy’s many explanations; such as how the pyramids were built without trucks back in the ancient Egyptian days and how grandpa Lou is older than his dad, so he MUST be smarter, the babies might be convinced after all.

‘Amby & Dexter’ Was Like ASMR in the 90s on Nickelodeon

If you remember waking up in the morning as a child, then Nick Jr. may have been your go-to entertainment source. If you were watching Nick Jr. in the late 90s or early 2000s then you probably remember the animated shorts Amby & Dexter. Or at least faintly remember them somehow.

Amby & Dexter was a series of five shorts: Scotch Tape, Doorknob, Portraits (aka the infamous painting episode), Gardening, and Piano. The shorts were created by Paul Fierlinger, along with his wife Sandra Schuette, and composed by John Avarese.  IMDB summarizes the series synopsis as “small people who transformed from a pair into hands, and back again when their adventure’s complete. Amby is the playful one who loves to dance while Dexter is the serious one. The two never talk.” That is exactly what Amby & Dexter was, and despite the summary of the series sounding so simple, that’s what actually makes it still memorable today.

Just seeing the characters again makes me suddenly wonder if I’m 6-years-old again and getting ready for school. Amby was a raven-haired girl who wore glasses, a white hat that sort of looks like a beret, and a blue blouse and skirt. Dexter was a brown-haired boy who also wore glasses, along with a white long-sleeved short under a brown vest over it, and brown shorts. When the two transformed from the hands, they began exploring the giant world around them.

“Amby & Dexter” is a play on ambidextrous, which is a term used for someone who can use their left and right hand equally well. If that isn’t clever than I don’t know what is. What really made Amby & Dexter so unique and aesthetically pleasing that so many people have found themselves discovering the shorts all over again were the sounds. I included the uploaded episode “Portraits” above because that single short represents the entire series so well. In that episode, the tiny duo Amby & Dexter paint portraits of each other. A simple plot yet there’s a reason why this is the most memorable episode of them all.

If I could rename the Portraits episode to “ASMR painting sounds”, I would with no hesitation because that is what stands out the most. Hearing the paint brush dip into the water and then in the paint, along with some other texture sounds is like music to my ears. It takes me back to when these shorts used to air daily. Come to think of it, before YouTube existed, those of us who were kids back then got to experience ASMR prior to it being a thing. Another great episode that dominated in sounds was “Scotch Tape”.

Looking back on Amby & Dexter makes me wish kids today had such aesthetically pleasing animated shorts. If you think about it, the series could’ve also been useful for teaching kids about their hearing and visual senses. Visually, Amby & Dexter is one of the most beautiful short series I’ve seen. It was like seeing old school animation come back to life in the late 90s and early 2000s. Even hearing the background music again gives major nostalgic feelings.

Rick and Morty Fans Petition for the Show to Be Renewed for Season 4

rick-and-morty-rixty-minutessource: Adult Swim

Things are getting pretty intense in the fandom of the epic sci-fi series Rick and Morty. Who knew the most popular cartoon around right now could have any drama that comes with it? It seems like just yesterday when there was a total freak out over McDonald’s running out of Szechuan sauce, but now there is a bigger issue. Co-creator and writer Dan Harmon revealed on Twitter that Adult Swim has not renewed the series for season 4 yet and that it’s pretty much uncertain on what the future looks like. And thus, the national panic began.

You would think that a show like Rick and Morty that has popularity that is rarely heard of nowadays, which broke Adult Swim’s viewership record, to be the apple of the network’s eye and season 4 ordered right away. In all honestly, I expected the show to be renewed right in the midst of season three’s reign. This just isn’t making sense at all and I understand the outcry and panic of fans. Of course, I don’t quite suspect that Adult Swim would do anything insane like cancel or abandon the series, so let’s not jump so far into the conclusion pot.

Luckily with a power fandom like Rick and Morty’s, fans are taking matter into their own hands. I’m not talking ordering the season and making it themselves, although can you imagine? There has been a petition made with a goal of 6,000 signatures and already over 5,500 fans have signed it. I applaud the Rick and Morty fandom for not taking this situation likely. After all, it is the show that wouldn’t have the success it does without your support (besides the epic and amazing team behind it of course). With fans and creators, teamwork makes the dream work at the end of the day. You can find the petition here: https://www.thepetitionsite.com/940/304/408/renew-rick-and-morty-for-season-4/

Adult Swim, please end this madness and announce the renewal of Rick and Morty for season 4 already. Unless, there’s a clever and creative trick up your sleeves to how exactly you’re going to announce season 4’s renewal or release date. Also, if this is another surprise season premiere then BRAVO, because you have everyone fooled right now.

Family Guy Is Getting Dark: “Send in Stewie, Please” Recap & Review

Disclaimer: Hello, I am an article that contains spoilers. Continue to read me at your own risk.

family-guy-bring-in-stewie-please.pngsource: FOX

I don’t know what it is about this show anymore, but it looks like the usual antics of this crazy animated family is about to take a sudden twist. Or perhaps it already has. We’ve seen Family Guy get real before, but the episodes in season 16 seem like they have just had bigger breakthroughs after breakthroughs. Shocking things that you would have never thought would happen on Family Guy, pretty much happened. There seems to be this modest, low-profile pattern that keeps happening when long running cartoons reach their “teen” seasons (10 and up). South Park has went from a show about vulgar and satirical humor, to having epic story lines in their newer seasons. I mean, South Park will always be the way that it is. But the ongoing story lines that are longer than two or three episodes is something that I never thought I would see. Even people notice that a show like SpongeBob Squarepants is getting a little on the dark side. It could just be a shakeup on the writing teams of these shows, but things are getting real and I think I can add Family Guy to this list.

Like I said, Family Guy has gotten real and dark before. With the grand who-dun-it style episodes like “And Then There Were Fewer” part 1 & 2, to Brian’s shocking death in “Life of Brian”. This latest episode did involve a death but it was more on the psychological (literally) spectrum and seeing Stewie Griffin on a whole other level. It really reminded me of one of those long, unedited interviews with celebrities where we see a side of them that we have never seen before. In “Send in Stewie, Please”, it’s almost as if we are truly meeting Stewie for the first time. Stewie has been sent to his school’s child psychologist for pushing a classmate down the stairs. As the psychologist is trying to make sense of Stewie’s actions, doing what a normal psychologist does, Stewie turns it completely around and begins to attack the psychologist’s personal life based on a photo he has seen of him and his husband.

When that little plan doesn’t work, Stewie breaks down and opens up, and we learn some things about Stewie that we’ve never thought of or have always wondered. First off, Stewie does not label himself as gay exactly. He states that he does believe that he could be sexually fluid, when he was telling the psychologist about how much he likes (but not like-like) the boy who he pushed down the stairs. Of course throwing in how he thinks of himself as “less gay” than he was before. Stewie went on to wholeheartedly reveal how he thinks that no one understands him and how he doesn’t fit in with the other kids. For that reason, Stewie has suppressed his true self, and even his true accent. Yes, throughout the episode the psychologist who is actually British, also tried to make sense of why Stewie, someone who’s not British, has the accent. Stewie finally confessed that his British accent is fake and revealed his real accent. At that moment, you could probably hear millions of people around America gasping, but not surprised. The psychologist was pleased to see that Stewie has accepted his true self, stating how he is now just like everyone else. That single comment didn’t sit right with Stewie, who realized at the end that he truly does not want to be like everyone else, reverting back to his faux accent. Here comes the dark part so buckle up. The psychologist soon suffers from a heart attack towards the end of the session and asks Stewie to hand him his medication. Stewie states that since he’s the only one who knows his secrets, then he must let him die. Stewie watches him die, carelessly and seemingly without remorse. The episode then cuts to Stewie’s bedroom at night, when Stewie woke up screaming from a nightmare. Brian comes in to see if he’s alright, then Stewie asks if he could sleep beside him that night. Stewie begins clearly showing guilt and remorse for letting his psychologist die.

For someone who used to shout about world domination and attempt to murder his own mother at numerous times, I have definitely seen a dramatic change in Stewie. This episode is definitely on my list for one of the most shocking Family Guy episodes to ever air. As a fan of the series, “Send in Stewie, Please” has helped me have a better understanding of Stewie and his personality. From his rant about Bethenney Frankel to rapping a Hamilton song, Stewie yet again wins me over with being my absolute favorite character on the show. I give this episode 5/5 stars (A+). Though long running shows often tend to make dark and shocking revelations, it’s what makes the show worth watching after so many years. The closing scene is what really won me over. The worrisome look in Stewie’s eyes prove that he did get something out of his session with the psychologist. Maybe he did change when it comes to empathizing with others. At the end of the psychologist session, Stewie made it clear that he doesn’t need to change how he’s always been, but what if he did after all?

The Krusty Krab vs. The Chum Bucket: Another SpongeBob Meme is Taking Over Twitter

Just when the evil Patrick memes were dying down. Once again, it really shows how influential SpongeBob Squarepants is. I mean, it has been running for 19 years after all.

We all know SpongeBob’s workplace & pretty much the most popular fast food restaurant in Bikini Bottom is the Krusty Krab. A Krabby Patty must be good, because that place stays busy and Mr. Krabs’ wallet stays stuffed. On the contrary, there’s another restaurant across the way known as The Chum Bucket, which is way less popular and is pretty sketchy if you know the real life definition of a “chumbucket”. Of course, the internet just knows how to make things even more interesting. The latest meme is people comparing two real life things using the Krusty Krab and the Chum Bucket, with the Krusty Krab being the most favorable thing and the Chum Bucket being the least favorable. Looks like a meme is going to be the cause of World War III.

Of course with a comparison like this, someone spills some truth tea.

There’s love for both here, by the way. ;)

Avatar: The Last Airbender and the Post Apocalypse Theory

A little disclaimer: a theory is a theory, defined as an idea that is suggested or presented as possibly true but that is not known or proven to be true. Nothing is being confirmed and should be interpreted as a confirmation. This is just my summary of the fan theory I discovered along with my thoughts on it. (Here’s the source of this theory)

avatarsource: Nickelodeon

We all know Avatar: The Last Airbender for being more than just a Nicktoon. It was one of the greatest and most powerful cartoons on television, let alone Nickelodeon. The idea of a world divided into four nations of “benders” who can control the natural elements – fire, earth, water and air, is just plain awesome. Watching Avatar was an experience, from the episode plots to the characters. Everything was just so well put together and I always told myself if I ever met the creators or writers of this series I would brag on their show till I’m blue in the face. I mean, you rarely (I said rarely that means it’s not impossible) find cartoons with such a creative background nowadays. Sometimes I wonder when we will see another cartoon that is as breathtaking as Avatar. Or even IF we will ever see another, but I like to have hope for the future of animated television.

A cartoon like Avatar just has to come with interesting fan theories, and this fan theory may be the most fascinating one yet. I’m talking staying up until 3 am and analyzing it over and over fascinating. That’s what I realized when I stumbled across this mind blowing article, that I might just have to side with. You can always count on me to analyze the most compelling fan theories out there. It’s pretty much a requirement from me at this point. Well, the theory is that the Avatar series takes place in a post-apocalyptic world. Now before you shut your laptop or throw your phone across the room, this might not be entirely far-fetched. This theory may sound unbelievable and even debatable, because even myself can’t help but feel like this series takes place thousands or even millions of years ago. But let’s look more into it:

This theory states that somewhere between Avatar Wan and Aang, there was an apocalyptic event that unfortunately led to mankind starting over. For that reason, Avatar must take place in the future. This person provides their evidence by mainly pointing out a “major problem” in the timeline on the show.

 “In the episode Beginnings, Part 1 and Part 2, it shows the time of the character Avatar Wan and how he became the first Avatar, when Korra lost her memory. One of the scenes shown was a Chinese palace of the Chou estate, where Wan stole food from the Chou brothers. …there is a major problem here. If you think about the development time it took between A:TLA and TLOK, it only takes 70 years to build Republic City, which is supposed to resemble an advanced city, from the plans and cars in it, as well as compared to the rest of the world…But when they show Avatar Wan’s time, it is remarkably similar to Avatar Aang’s time.”

The theory also adds how animals in the show like Sky Bisons and Chimeras may be supposedly altered due to radioactivity, how characters like Combustion Man and Guru Pathik may exist due to “special intervention” or mutation, and more. All of the information is pretty mind blowing and the author of the theory explains it very well in my opinion, but what really has me going is the Benders explanation.

Avatar-the-last-airbender-hogwarts-770x395

This supposed evidence of why benders have their powers could be easily disregarded, but not so fast. This person makes a rather good point when questioning the show’s excuses to how the humans developed their bending powers. In The Legend of Korra, it was revealed that the lion turtles gave powers to Avatar Wan and his kind during his time. Keep in mind, bending is not a power that can be passed down through teaching. As the lion turtles stopped giving powers away, the bending died down. So the apocalyptic event could have mutated the humans, giving them bending powers as time went on. Also the side-abilities performed, such as Metalbending, were not the works of the lion turtles, meaning only one thing. Mutated powers caused by radiation, which was caused by the apocalypse my friend.

This theory was a lot to take in and I hope I summarized it well for those of you Avatar TLAB fans out there. I really recommend you read the original article linked above in the disclaimer though. It may have you on a warpath, questioning everything you’ve ever known about the series. Or you may just find it as another interesting and enjoyable fan theory. It really depends on what level of fan you are. Once again, no one is confirming this theory to be true so no need to get frustrated or bothered by it.
