Back to the past, Samurai Jack…

As nostalgia rules over the ever-aging Millenials with reboots to pull at their heart strings (Ghostbusters, Duck Tales, I even heard a Matrix rumor today…), the samurai on the noblest of quests is back to finish what he started.

NYCC: Robot Chicken

     Many moons ago I came across a funny little stop-motion series called “Sweet J Presents”. A  funny little spot of stop-motion animated toys involved in skits that rode the edges of pop-culture, random acts of violence, and kindergarten level fart jokes. Well, Sweet J grew up (sort of) and built a robot.

IMPORTANT ADVENTURE TIME NEWS!!!

 

Pendleton Ward, creator of the wonderful CN show, “Adventure Time” answers a question we’ve all been asking. (from Newsrama)

Nrama: Jenny (Klein, who works on the WB’s “Supernatural”) also asks, “Why does Finn’s hat have little ears on the top of it?”

P.Ward: When he was a baby, Finn went out into the woods and skinned a bear.

This is a great interview. I rather love “A.T.” and think you should too! I know, from the look of it, it’s easy to dismiss as just another “kid’s show”, but honestly, it’s very much in the vein of the Muppets. There’s a lot of humor there for the kids, it’s presented in a bright and colorful manner, but here and there, you’ll catch these little snippets and jokes that shoot right over most children’s heads and catch you right in the funny bone. Give it a shot!
