  • Awesomenauts Achievement Cartoon References

    0 CommentsPosted by on August 6, 2012 under Cartoons, Video Games
    So today I picked up the quirky MOBA-platformer Awesomenauts from Steam. It's supposed to have an '80s Saturday Morning Cartoon vibe to it, but I guess I don't really get that feel from the game other than the inspirations for some of the character archetypes (space cowboy, sentient brain, giant robot, etc). The art and voices just don't match up with the cartoons I'm used to. However, the ach... more.
  • Top 10 Best Evil Bosses to Work For (and why it may be a bad idea)

    In all walks of fiction, the hero usually travels alone, and at most has a small band of allies to follow along. Sometimes heroes band together and form teams, but rarely do they bulge beyond militia numbers. The villains, however, oh boy the villains. They are no strangers to having help. If the government wants to give out jobs, they need to release a few super criminals into the population. Ton... more.

    C.O.P.S. is a cartoon I'd never heard about until a couple years ago. Maybe I watched it as a kid and totally forgot, but I'd hope I'd remember a show as cool as this. Featuring the often-bizarre character designs of Peter Chung (of Aeon Flux), C.O.P.S. is an animated series about a team of police officers, many of which have special equipment of some kind; Bowser has a robot dog named Blitz, "Bul... more.
  • Flowchart for ’80s and ’90s Cartoons

    My word, this flowchart was a pain in the ass to make! Yes, I'll get questions about why I didn't add Batman: The Animated Series or Eek! The Cat or Rugrats or any of tons of shows not included here. This is confined to roughly the '80s and the first half of the '90s, doesn't include superhero series or Nicktoons, and also omits a bunch of more comedic series (Garfield, Beavis & Butthead, Flin... more.
  • Inhumanoids – 01 – The Evil That Lies Within, Part 1

    What lies before you is the precursor to something truly magical. I can't speak for Inhumanoids' popularity in the '80s, but the name certainly doesn't carry the same amount of weight as something like TMNT (I don't even have to define it, you know what it stands for). Inhumanoids only ran for 13 full 22-minute episodes, but it didn't start out that way. According to Wikipedia (apply your grain of... more.
