With in the space of a few months The Line are at it again, this time throwing a great launch event for their personal love letter to 80′s Saturday morning cartoons. While we are still nursing our heads, we look again at this fictional intro and are reminded how beautifully animated Super Turbo Atomic Ninja Rabbit really is. 

Great work guys!

Enjoy!!!!!!!

One of the greatest disappointments about Jurassic Park is that there was no animated spin-off. Considering the wealth of Saturday morning cartoons in the early 90s, along with the success Spielberg’s Amblimation was enjoying, you’d think a JP cartoon would be a no-brainer, but alas it never materialised.

Well, Universal did consider a series and actually put some serious work into developing it. Artist William Stout was hired to create some concepts for the film, and a selection of them can be seen above. No surprise that the cast were scheduled to return, but it’s fun to see that one of Jurassic World’s stars - the Mosasaur - was set to make an appearance too. 

Stout is selling these pieces, so head over to his website if you’re interested.

More information about the series can be seen in another post from Stout, dated 26th April 2014. Revealing that development progressed far enough for there to be a trailer, Stout writes:

“Although I own a copy, I don’t think this trailer is available anywhere.

“Upon the success of Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park movie, all kinds of ancillary projects abounded: toys, games, novelties, apparel, etc.

“Towards the end of all of this merchandising I got a call from artist Will Meugniot, asking if I’d be interested in designing a Jurassic Park animated series. This was not going to be a kiddy show (although kids of all ages, including myself, could enjoy it). They wanted the show to be a mature prime time series with top writers and state-of-the-art television animation augmented with quite a bit of CG animation. Universal Cartoon Studios wanted a “graphic novel look” to the series. I came in, showed my portfolio and was hired.

“We made a trailer to communicate the look and feel of the series, also showing how we would combine computer animation with traditional animation. All we needed was Spielberg’s approval.

“I heard through the grapevine that he never bothered to watch what we had done. By that time the word was out that he was burnt out on Jurassic Park merchandising and all of the film’s commercial exploitation. So, it never got made.”

Whether this was the sole reason is impossible to say, but hopefully we’ll see more art, and maybe even that trailer, sooner or later.

Niall Horan And Louis Tomlinson Confirm One Direction ARE Going On A Break But Are NOT Splitting

Okay, you can all come out from under your duvet forts and blanket tents now (might want to bring those cookie crumbs and leftover cheese sticks with you), because Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson have clarified *THOSE* hiatus reports.

And, while they did confirm they’d be taking a well-deserved break, they both insisted that this is very much NOT the end for the band.

PHEW. Like we said before, we can all cope with a break, can’t we? Those boys have worked their little bottoms off non-stop for the past five years, and we can’t help but feel that a break is what the doctor ordered.

Although, we will of course miss them more than we miss Saturday morning cartoons and having the pressure of being ‘Mrs Wolf’ in ‘What’s The Time, Mrs Wolf?’ as our only responsibility in life.

Taking to Twitter to insist that they’re not really going anywhere (HURRAH), Niall wrote: “Ok so Lots of rumours going round. We are not splitting up, but we will be taking a well earned break at some point next year.”

He added that they still have ‘lots’ they want to achieve, and can’t wait for us to hear their new music.

We can’t wait to hear it either, Nialler.

Louis also tweeted to reassure fans that this is not the end of One Direction, promising: “Your support is truly indescribable! It’s just a break :) we’re not going anywhere !!”

Aaaaand BREATHE. It’s obviously going to be tough not seeing these four for a while, but just imagine how exciting it will be when they return, refreshed and more ready than ever to continue being the biggest band in the world.

***OOOO, LIAM PAYNE HAS NOW HAD HIS SAY, TOO***

Yep, Big P came online to echo Nouis’ comments, adding: “So glad everything has been cleared up today and ur support with it is amazing not that we could ever expect anything less your amazing. [sic]

“Thank you so much for everything you have done for us it’s been the most amazing five years and there’s so much more to come.”

Earlier this month, producer and songwriter Julian Bunetta revealed that he knew the boys were taking a break.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, he explained: “They’ve been doing something that no band has ever done — five albums, five tours, and a movie in five years. It’s pretty prolific and incredible.

“It’s up to them. They might take a year off and miss it. They might take a year off and say you know what, I need another year off.”

He continued: “I think it’s important for them to have a relationship that isn’t strained by being gone all the time. It’s important for them to do whatever they want as individual men and not have to make a democratic decision for once.

“I think it’s important for them to do whatever their hearts desire. Maybe their hearts will lead them back together. I hope.”

Errr, ditto.

Julian also discussed how the boys are getting on without Zayn Malik, insisting that while there’s a “personality missing,” they haven’t changed.

He said: “They still have the same attitudes. It’s not like it’s worse or better. It’s just the same guys, but there’s one missing. It just changes the dynamic regardless.”

So, what can we expect from the new album then, Julian?

“We’re stretching out outside of the perimeters of what a traditional pop boy band would do,” he said.

“We’re just kind of having fun. No rules. To be honest, I think there are six songs that could be singles on here.”

Ooo, we cannot wait to hear it.

We’ll miss you, boys - Just don’t be gone too long, yeah?
