“You guys seriously used to celebrate a holiday by firing rockets into the sky? Of all the traditions to bring back, Blue.”

Fallout February day 11! <3 done for @smashinterrupted‘s friend Sian! I don’t have their tumblr so please let them know about the post, Smash!

I’m not sure if I was spot on with how I wanted to paint Piper, but she was really fun!

We didn’t set out to be superheroes. But sometimes life doesn’t go the way you planned. The good thing is, my brother wanted to help a lot of people and that’s what we’re going to do.

1.) I actually have two answers here, because they’re both from the same era (late 90′s), and they both center on a young boy named Ned:

Wow but both of these shows are pure 90′s.  “Nightmare Ned” is based on a PC game (though for the longest time I thought it was the other way around), while “Ned’s Newt” is pretty obviously riding that 90′s wave of pop-culture-savvy-magical-sidekick thing The Genie from “Aladdin” kicked off with such a vengeance (this version’s even a big, blue, blobby fellow).

Sidebar, but boy nothing says “Family Friendly TV” like a show whose intro consists of, like, 75% the main character who is a child screaming out in genuine terror.


5.) Well, first, some runner-ups, ‘cuz man but there have been some bad cartoons over the years: Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius, every animated Titanic movie (ever), and the entirety of Dingo Pictures movies.

In the end, though, I think we all know.  There can be only one.

See, here’s the thing about “Food Fight”.  It’s ugly as all sin, sure, but that’s true of a lot of animated movies , and besides, it at least looked, like, manageably bad before it had its original files stolen.  But where other animated movies have at least tried to be something real and relateable, or else at least kept their unchecked cynicism at the bargain-basement level, “Food Fight” was meant to be presented to the audience as a major, mainstream motion picture…built entirely on naked, disgusting corporatism.  Like, there’s literally no layer between the gross advertising in “Food Fight” and “Food Fight”’s actual content.  They are one and the same.  And the idea that we were meant to just eat it up is so repugnant on every level to me.  THAT is what REALLY makes “Food Fight” the worst animated movie of all time.


11.) Again, a few thoughts come to mind.  “Power Rangers” might be pretty neat…buuuuuuuuuuut its origins are pretty tightly tied to anime already, so I feel like it might honestly lose something in that jump.  “Star Trek” had a cartoon back in the day, but it was FILMation, and thus cheap as all hell…plus, that was, like, close to forty years ago, how have they not tried another one in all this time?  But I think, if I had to pick just one?

 Supposedly, an animated movie for this is already in the works, but

a.) I’ll believe it when it is actually released to theaters, and not a moment before, given how many times an animated version has tried to get off the ground and failed, and how long they’ve been trying to do one

and b.) I can all promise you it won’t be the movie “Bone” deserves.  These characters, this world, was simply not meant for three-dimensional CG animation; there’s no way to do that without losing so much of the ineffable charm of the original, even with the admirable strides CG animation has taking in matching cel-based animation’s capacity for stylization and exaggeration.  Hand-drawn, cel-based.  THAT is the animated movie “Bone” deserves.
