“Mindy Turns 5” – Half-Hour Special!

Mindy has finally turned 5 and is super excited that she is now old enough to go to space. But she’s planned a tea party in the back yard. The kids convince Mindy to move her tea party to the Moon! In her first trip to space ever, Mindy gets to board the Propulsion family saucer and experience space travel, rounding out their Moon tea party with a quick trip out to Pluto and back.

Tuesday, April 3, 2018

“Endless Summer”: Jet is amazed to find out that the entire Earth doesn’t have the same season at the same time.  So he flies with Sydney and Sean from the northern hemisphere to the southern hemisphere to compare, and experience holidays in winter and summer… all in one day!

“Jet Shrinks the Kids”: Mindy feels bad that she’s the smallest kid in the group, so sympathetic Jet and friends use a shrink-ray and become her size. The plan goes awry, and Jet, Sean, Sydney, and Sunspot become the size of mice. Mindy has to follow intricate diagrams to reverse the shrink-ray!

Wednesday, April 4, 2018

“Mindy’s Ice Rink”: Mindy is impatient for winter because she wants to ice skate. So Jet, Sean, Sydney, and Celery fly to Saturn’s icy rings to gather ice from them, and return to build a Saturn-ringed skating rink around Jet’s house.

“Measure for Measure”: Jet, Sydney, Sean, Mindy, and Sunspot decide to make a scaled replica of the solar system using found items in their own neighborhood, and in doing so learn that an Astronomical Unit is the distance from the Earth to the Sun.

Thursday, April 5, 2018

“Mindy and Carrot Bake”: While making a cake, Carrot and Mindy find they are one are short one ingredient, so they head to the store, but Carrot accidentally pushes a wrong button on the wagon’s newly-updated control panel and they take off into outer space! Using a diagram, methodical experimentation, and record keeping, Mindy and Carrot figure out how to properly fly the saucer back home, where they finally finish the cake.

“Commander Cressida Begins”: Mindy has a problem: now that she’s been to space with the bigger kids, she realizes how much there is out there to see! How can she decide where to explore next? Sydney asks her mom, Dr. Skelley, who presents them with the very first edition of Commander Cressida comics! In reading the comic book, Mindy comes to appreciate that she, like Commander Cressida, can explore space “one adventure at a time.”

Friday, April 6, 2018

“Mindy’s Bedtime”: Mindy has to go to bed when the Sun goes down, but she’s having such a fun day with her friends, she asks Jet and the others to help her keep the Sun from going down. The older kids humor Mindy and try to help “slow down the Sun.” All their efforts make Mindy so sleepy that she decides to go home and sleep.

“Galileo, Galileo!”: Sydney and Jet are having a hard time explaining to Mindy that the Sun doesn’t move – the Earth is moving around the Sun, so the Sun just SEEMS to move. Then Sean comes over dressed as his science hero Galileo, getting ready to do a school report. Mindy asks “Galileo” to explain how come the Sun seems to move, and Sean practices for his report by explaining how the planets move, in character as Galileo!

The Top 10 Cartoons That Made a Wave in 2017

Whether it was a positive or negative wave of reactions, a wave is a wave. 2017 introduced us to some new faces, season premieres that went viral, and some familiar faces that were revived in animation. Some cartoons seemed to have a extreme cult following, others are just getting started. We’ll also be saying goodbye to one of these shows very soon, and it just hurts my soul to know that. No matter what reaction they had, they are the cartoons that will impact the future of animated television if they haven’t already. These are the top ten cartoons that had everyone talking, ranting, crying, analyzing, or all of the above in 2017.

1) Rick and Morty

rick-and-mortyAdult Swim

Wow. What a year that Rick and Morty has had. If one word could be used to describe 2017 for Rick and Morty, that word would be “viral”. I mean this show really went there. First of all, the season 3 premiere was a total surprise, and ended up making the series Adult Swim’s most watched series ever. History was made my friend. The terms Pickle Rick and Szechuan Sauce had to have been googled at least 10 million times this year. AT LEAST. Rick and Morty pretty much won 2017.

Rick and Morty is the story of insane and sometimes hostile adventures of Morty Smith and his grandfather Rick Sanchez. Sometimes accompanied by the rest of the Smiths mom and dad Jerry & Beth, and daughter Summer, the action-filled journeys to other dimensions never end.

2) Big Mouth

netflix big mouthNetflix

A tale of crazy and embarrassing puberty stories told through animation. Netflix has really done it with this one. As raunchy and vulgar Big Mouth is, it really portrayed puberty and hormones as the monsters that they truly are. No seriously, Big Mouth surrounds a group of pre-teens who are followed by a Hormone Monster and Monstress, who are constantly harassing them and pressuring them to act inappropriately. Puberty is a confusing burden that everyone deals with, so this show can definitely relate to anyone.

3) Hey Arnold

hey-arnold-season-6Nickelodeon

We thought we said goodbye to Hey Arnold in 2004, but the story was not over yet. This year came the adventures of Arnold, Gerald, and the rest of the gang and their quest to help find Arnold’s parents. The P.S. 118 class won a trip to San Lorenzo, where the secrets that were held onto so long in this series finally came to the light. Romances were ignited, closure was given, and Arnold found the answer that he was looking for. Plus, Brainy is the character that you wouldn’t have thought would save the day, but that’s another amazing twist that the movie had. The Jungle Movie was a sort of, sigh of relief, and only the beginning of the revival of classic Nickelodeon shows.

4) OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes

ok_ko_episode_1_stillCartoon Network

Cartoon Network introduced us to another action packed show in 2017. Although it was introduced as a short pilot “Lakewood Plaza Turbo”, at least we got to see it become a full series. OK K.O. follows a character in a futuristic setting who is destined to be the world’s greatest hero. With the constant theme of video games and references to other shows that came before it, I think this series could have a nice future ahead. It has gained a fair amount of praise, followed by a blossoming fandom.

5) Adventure Time

Adventure-TimeCartoon Network

All good adventures come to an end. In 2016, it was confirmed that Adventure Time will not be renewed for anymore seasons and that season 10 will be the last time that we’ll see Finn the dog and Jake the human going on a number of quests with additional characters Princess Bubblegum, BMO, Lumpy Space Princess, and more. I feel like the news brought fans closer together and made them appreciate the show while it was still here. Adventure Time’s final episode will be titled “Come Along With Me” and is set to be released in 2018.

Adventure Time was a passion project for the people on the crew who poured their heart into the art and stories. We tried to put into every episode something genuine and telling from our lives and make a show that was personal to us and that had jokes, too! I’m really happy that it connected with an audience for so long. It’s a special thing, I think.” – Pendleton Ward, Creator

6) South Park

south-park-season-21Comedy Central

South Park just never seems to stop getting good. Their constant pop culture references tied in with a ridiculously funny story line makes almost every episode worth watching. This year was the premiere of season 21 and the writers didn’t hesitate to take a jab at the uprising of electronic personal assistants, the increase of home makeover shows, political outrage, and the country stylings of popular hip hop songs. The remaining episodes touched even more references to humorous and ridiculous political statements such as “fake news”. It was just South Park being South Park and we loved every minute of it.

7) Steven Universe

steven universeCartoon Network

Steven Universe continued to be the top Cartoon Network series and one of the most popular cartoons on television today. It’s never ending adventures for the “Crystal Gems”, or the magic beings – Steven, Pearl, Garnet, and Amethyst who use their powers to protect the earth. The show separates itself from many other cartoons today in sense of representing LGBTQ+ characters, gender fluidity, and tackling abusive relationships.

“In large part it’s based on my experience as a bisexual woman. I think that there are a lot of ways that I — how to I put this? These themes have so much to do with who you are. There is an idea that these are themes that should not be shared with kids but everyone shares stories about love and attraction with kids. So many stories for kids are about love. It really makes a difference to hear stories about how someone like you can be loved. And if you don’t hear those stories, it will change who you are. It’s very important to me that we speak to kids about consent. That we speak to kids about identity. There’s so much I have to say about this. I want to feel like I exist and I want everyone else who wants to feel that way to feel that way too.” – Rebecca Sugar answering what inspired her to include those themes in Steven Universe, San Diego Comic-Con 2016

8) Family Guy

family guyFOX

The first family of adult cartoons started off strong with their season 16 premiere. In Emmy Winning Episode, the Griffins were doing whatever it takes to become an Emmy winning show, even if it means acting as the shows that seem to always win. Shows such as Modern Family, Girls, Breaking Bad, and The Big Bang Theory were parodied. Another major turning point for Family Guy was Brian’s exit. It was such a twist that we didn’t see coming. What was thought to be episode ending resolution turned into a dark reality. This year really proved that Family Guy is still going strong 18 years later.

9) BoJack Horseman

bojack-horsemanNetflix

Netflix has only five animated series on its platform, but this one has stood out the most. BoJack Horseman has won over the hearts of many being the first ever original animated series on Netflix that premiered on August 22, 2014. With their memorable one-liners, it was bound to be a success. It all takes place in the life of a Humanoid horse who was once a 90s sitcom star, but following the cancellation of his show led to him being a washed up actor, hoping to find his place in the modernized industry once again. The show takes on serious issues of mental illness and addiction with a satirical take on events in the real world. Season 4 was released on September 8, 2017 and received a positive reception overall.

10) The Jellies

the-jelliesAdult Swim

This year Tyler the Creator and Lionel Boyce’s show The Jellies really had us impressed. After finding out he’s adopted, even though he’s clearly a human male and his parents and younger sister are jelly fish, 16-year-old Cornell Jelly attempts to find himself a number of ridiculous ways. The Jellies was originally an exclusive on Tyler’s app Golf Media, and main character Cornell was a different race. Tyler explains why the change of race in the best way possible at San Diego Comic-Con:

“How many f–king black cartoon characters is it on TV right now? Name five I’ll give you time. It is none. They cancelled static shock, nobody remember Fillmore, we don’t got sh-t…”

I, for one, absolutely remember Fillmore. Click here to watch the rest of Tyler’s response.

Hey Arnold Fans Are Officially Petitioning for Season 6

hey-arnold-season-6source: Nickelodeon

Hey Arnold fans are experiencing some post-revival movie syndrome, which means they want more. The Jungle Movie brought back a lot of nostalgic feelings and memories for those who have watched the show since it’s premiere in the 90s. Should Hey Arnold continue for a sixth season? Well, earlier this year at New York Comic Con, the creator and cast didn’t deny it one bit but instead insisted that if The Jungle Movie did well, it could lead to a season 6 or further. There isn’t a doubt that this movie did the right numbers for the franchise to be revived.

After The Jungle Movie’s big premiere, all of the fan theories and mysteries that ever existed about Hey Arnold were solved. Helga and Arnold are a couple, after years of Helga suppressing her feelings through angry tactics towards him. Phoebe and Gerald were always favored to end up together, so it’s about time! Brainy finally got closure from Helga after being knocked out a few thousand times throughout the series. I’d say Helga truly received the most character development in this movie. But the long-awaited mystery was truly unveiled when Arnold found his parents alive and well. If only we can hear all of the sighs of relief from everyone watching. Something to also note and be relieved about is seeing Pigeon Man again. Let’s just say there’s a fan theory out there that painted a dark picture for that character. Moving on!

Now that the movie came, conquered, and made many emotional, why shouldn’t there be a season 6? This isn’t a bad idea and the team is behind it and willing to make it happen. Rebooting Hey Arnold will make room for new adventures and really set the stage for Arnold and Helga’s relationship. Plus, seeing life at home for Miles and Stella as they raise their son is something worth watching. I can see why there are people defending this idea. Hopefully, the network backs this because the fans sure are. Recently a petition was created and it’s spreading like wildfire, so if you want to support Hey Arnold having a sixth season, you can find the petition link below:

Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie Answers All of Your Burning Questions

It’s here. The highly anticipated revival film of Hey Arnold, Nickelodeon’s classic series. Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie aired tonight on Nickelodeon and it answered the ultimate question: What happened to Arnold’s parents?

hey-arnold-the-jungle-movie-cartoon-buzz-review

What a brilliant way to spend Thanksgiving weekend than to watch the conclusion to a show that ended 10+ years ago. Arnold and the gang headed off to San Lorenzo to unfold the mysteries of his parent’s whereabouts. First off, bravo to creators and writers behind Hey Arnold. It was exciting, hilarious, mindblowing, and emotional to a lot of us who grew up watching Hey Arnold as kids. As someone in their twenties, this movie definitely brought my childhood self back out of me. It was a breath of fresh air to finally receive some kind of closure and conclude the cliffhanger once and for all. There was so much that happened in this movie that words can barely express it. Beware, this article contains spoilers. If you haven’t watched The Jungle Movie yet, it will be playing on Nickelodeon & TeenNick’s NickSplat block all weekend and possibly into next week. Also, prepare to have your mind blown.

1) Turns out Arnold’s last name was a revelation to a lot of people.

hey-arnold-last-name

The name’s Shortman, Arnold Shortman. This piece of information has been on the internet for some time now but I guess some weren’t convinced. Who knew Grandpa Phil was calling him by his last name all along?

2) We finally figure out Mr. Simmons’ plus one?

We’re rooting for Mr. Simmons and Peter.

3) SHORTAKI LIVES.

We’ve waited over a decade for this. HELGA FINALLY GOT HER MAN.

4) Love is in the air for Gerald & Phoebe as well!

Gerald and Phoebe are an item! We’ve always known this was going to happen. Our nostalgic hearts can’t take it.

It’s the moment of truth. Are you ready for this one?

5) YES, Arnold found his parents!

hey-arnold-stella-miles-shortman

Miles and Stella Shortman were found, and they were reunited with Arnold and the rest of the boarding house family. The sight of Arnold’s pupils growing as he realizes that he no longer has to dream about finding his parents because they are right in front of him was almost too emotional to handle.

6) Brainy is the hero of the entire movie

DPcIue8W0AAELs_

Brainy’s obsession with Helga finally paid off. He managed to be the reason that Arnold and Helga are a thing, and that Arnold found his parents. Plus, he got a kiss from Helga. Brainy has officially won the game of life.

Thank you to Craig Bartlett, the Hey Arnold team, and Nickelodeon. You’ve let many relive their childhood tonight. Now, about a season 6…

The Moment Has Come: Here’s the Trailer & Release Date for ‘Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie’

hey arnold

Courtesy of Nickelodeon

It’s the moment of truth. Nickelodeon’s highly anticipated reboot movie of their classic Nicktoon, Hey Arnold, is right around the corner and before you know it we will be watching the big comeback on our TV screens.

‘Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie’ continues a journey that was last left off over ten years ago. Arnold Shortman is a 10-year-old calm & optimistic boy who resides in the city of Hillwood where he faces everyday life and challenges along with his neighborhood friends who he also attends school with. He lives in a boarding house with his paternal grandparents and other non-relative residents, who he considers to be family since he grew up living with them. Everything may seem quite alright in Arnold’s world, but throughout the series, we learn that there is a deep curiosity that he faces. Arnold wants to know what happened to his parents.

Hey Arnold is one of the biggest 90s Nickelodeon reboots that is happening. This highly anticipated TV movie is sure to rock the network yet again and reveal the ultimate truth of what happened to Arnold’s parents. Arnold and his Hillwood pals are heading to the 6th grade and a jungle adventure in the fictional country of San Lorenzo in Central America. Now let me warn you, the crew from Arnold’s stoop are getting some very fashionable makeovers – and Gerald’s hair lost a few inches!

The original series of Hey Arnold ended more than 10 years ago, but it ended with a more major cliffhanger than we thought. A key item in that cliffhanger will shape the entire movie and eventually tell us the fate of Arnold’s parents. I guess the best person to give you more of these exclusive details are Craig Bartlett himself, so check out the first look of Hey Arnold: The Jungle Movie:

San Diego Comic-Con 2017 is around the corner and there will be a panel exclusively for Hey Arnold. There is expected to be some big news to drop about the movie. Possibly a teaser trailer? We’ll keep you updated!
