On the beloved Justice League animated series, Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman and friends were meant to be the best of the best—the World’s Finest, if you will. But the cartoon also spent a lot of time showing us that the Justice League were super easy to smack about. Here’s a handy dandy supervillain’s guide to…
Popeye is a character that has been interpreted in almost every possible way. The most popular though, is the lovable, animated version and that goofy, fun tone comes across in this brand new poster by artist Tom Whalen.
We were thrilled to get a whole miniseries focusing on Marceline, Adventure Time’s resident vampire, a while back. Adventure Time: Stakes is out on DVD today—and to celebrate, here’s an exclusive clip showing the animatics of the story’s scary climax.
When last week’s “Steven Bomb” of Steven Universe episodes began, it offered love as the real answer to many fans’ questions about the history of Garnet. But in “Log Date 7 15 2", we got an alternative answer to those questions, and it was so meta, it might as well have been a love letter to fandom as a whole.
Ever since Peridot entered a tentative alliance with the Crystal Gems, the question of just what would happen to her has been on the lips of Steven Universe fans. Would she betray them? Join them? Well, whether she wanted to or not, Peridot made a decision in “Message Received” that changes Steven Universe in some…
Peridot joining the Crystal Gems in Steven Universe has given us some great moments, and a softening of one of the show’s few villains. But while “It Could’ve Been Great” took us to the far flung reaches of the moon, it also showed us that Peridot still has a long way to go on her path to redemption.
Steven Universe is never afraid to turn its deft characterization skills to characters other than Steven himself, leading to the entire cast being incredibly well-fleshed out. But the show is always at it best when it turns its hand to Connie, and through her, the growth of Steven as a character as well.
Steven Universe is a show that prides itself in subverting gender sterotypes and championing non-binary displays of love, so two feminine characters dancing seems like a pretty mild thing to worry about. Fear not though, as there’s some very absurd people over at Cartoon Network UK who think that the above gif is TOO…
Steven Universe made its highly anticipated return last night with an episode dedicated to one of the shows most intriguing characters: Garnet. It was an episode that teased big reveals about the character fans have waited ages to hear, but it was also an episode where the biggest questions had the simplest answers.
It feels like it’s been far too long since the heartwarming delight of Steven Universe was in our lives—but the wait for more Crystal Gem goodness is nearly over. Steven Universe is back January 4th, with a whole week of episodes!
Oh my god. Oh my god. Genndy Tartakovsky’s iconic cartoon series Samurai Jack, which blended scifi and Japanese swordsman awesomeness, came to an end over a decade ago now. It’s lived on in the form of comics since, but at long last, Jack is coming back to television for a whole new season of adventures.
Ah, Thanksgiving. The holiday where you eat too much, lay around like a slob and try to avoid your uncle who smells like stale waffles. Well, hopefully not that last part. Even smelly uncle Dave needs some love.
We all agree that, no matter where you stand politically, it’s a good thing to “support the troops.” But what if, instead of defending our freedom, the troops were playing football games with terrorists? That’s the question posed by one particular episode of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, titled “Pigskin Commandos.”…
We’ve known for a while that the delightful Steven Universe would be getting some long-awaited merchandise, and now we have our first look at it: four glorious little Pop! Vinyls from Funko. They’re so adorable, we just want to shove as many of them into our Cheeseburger Backpacks as possible.
After writing about Justice League Unlimited last week, my thoughts kept coming back to one episode in particular: “Epilogue.” It’s a story that managed to tie together so many years of Batman in such a perfect manner, it was almost the last-ever episode of the DC animated universe—and it truly understood what makes…
We live in a golden age of superhero television. Hits like The Flash, Agent Carter, Arrow, and Agents of SHIELD dominate our TV screens. We champion them for their ability to bring some of the most mind-melting comic book sagas to TV—but one show did it all before them, nearly a decade ago: Justice League Unlimited.
The Guardians of the Galaxy cartoon took a brief hiatus before making it’s return this weekend, and I’m glad it did. It made me have at least an extra week of thinking this show had really turned a corner. Then “The Backstabbers” happened, and at least it had an appropriate title for how I felt?
Treehouse of Horror V isn’t just one of the best Simpsons Halloween episodes—it’s one of the best episodes of the entire show. But, even for Halloween, it was a surprisingly blood-laden and gory episode for the cartoon. Why? It turns out it was because of complaints from Congress.
The original Jem cartoon from the 80s is beloved for a reason—and it offers a lot of great material for a modern musical superhero movie. So the movie version could have been great. Instead, the Jem movie left all the best parts of the cartoon on the table.
