I forgot to say that if you go to youtube to watch Herculoids, you need to know that ALL of the "full episodes" for the Herculoids that I found on youtube are from the 1981 remake series, NOT the original 1967 episodes. The 1981 series is (IMHO) inferior to the original. An easy way to tell (other than looking up the name of the episode) is that in the original series, the kid *never* called his parents "father" and "mother" - he always used their names. In the 1981 episodes, that was changed and he did use father & mother (most of the time).

Don't worry - if he gets unwieldy just show him the door to the glue factory...

 

Glad he's back. Missing people who aren't posting on here anymore though - tds (he's a-coming though..), S.O, Warren (but he's busy). TrollDragon (I've got my eyes on him on the portable thread), The Cake, Panda, Mini-panda, Parall3l.

 

If I missed ya, well you must not have wired me any money when I specifically asked them to :veryevil:

Yeah, I know what you mean. You've got a bit of the sheep dog in you as well, it seems.

 

Also, I posted a link to an article on breast milk cheese and somehow nobody commented on that. How does this happen?

:confused: I'm strictly a cat-lover. Love can go both ways though. Sometime's it's in a love's best interest to put things in their rear.

 

Breast milk cheese. Say it again. Breast milk cheese.

I think that's pretty sufficient on it's own....

 

 

D'oh, I remember who I've managed to forgotten - The black bird Curra and the elephant Jude.

I had a delightful snack at work tonight....mozzarella sticks that I dipped in nacho cheese! :biggrin:

 

And I vaguely remember the Herculoids, although I couldn't tell you if it was the original or the remake. 

post #8453 of 11290

That might be a tad bit excessive, even for a cheese lover...

 

If it's any consolation I watched Disney's Hercules. James Wood. Now there's a villain.

Back to Hanna-Barbera (of course) for the 1967 debut of Herculoids. It amazes me that they only made 36 segments (shown in 18 episodes) of Herculoids - but I guess when you have Space Ghost, Johnny Quest, Jetsons, Flintstones & Scooby-Doo, you really don't need Herculoids. In my opinion, the stars of Herculoids were the creatures - they rocked!! A flying dragon that shoots laser beams out of his eyes AND his tail, a rhinoceros that shoots exploding rocks out of his horn, A giant rock gorilla that that is impossibly strong and Gloop & Gleep that are, well, I don't WTH they are - but they are cool!!

Yes! One of my favorites as a kid, along w/ Jonny Quest. They couldn't make JQ today, what with all the PC crap. rolleyes.gif

I liked Jonny Quest a lot more when I watched it again about five years ago when they were replaying it on Boomerang. The plots felt kind of dated and predictable, which they probably were even when it was new, but I could still appreciate the animation and the comic relief. And it has this certain, unidentifiable feel about it that no other cartoon I've seen manages to duplicate. There's this illusion of depth, even though the character backstories aren't particularly complex and the plots of each episode are mostly isolated from each other. There's of course also the typical "SCIENCE!" flavor that was very common in its era, though it's more whimsical sci-fi than believable/physically possible technology. All in all, it's one that holds up despite regularly pushing the suspense of disbelief envelope.

 

Alas, the show was badgered almost from the beginning for how "violent" it was, even though I seem to remember reading that no blatant death ever happens on screen. They said they stopped making it in the 60s because they went over budget for every single episode and because it was extremely difficult to produce, but I imagine the complaints about the content played a role as well.

 
Unfortunately, on the box set they're currently offering they censored some of the dialogue for PC reasons. Apparently Race Bannon said something insensitive to some "natives," so they've muted him even though his lips are clearly moving. Because of this I refused to buy it, and looking at the comments on Amazon I'm not alone.

I know this has been discussed to death, I'm a day late to the party - heck it's not even the right thread for it.

 

But I just watched Ozymandias.

Being born in 1997 has its downsides, prime of which is seeing the end of good cartoons frown.gif
post #8458 of 11290

Well at least you got to notice the end of it. Means you know that there was quality to begin with ;).

post #8459 of 11290

Being born in 1988, I got to see all kinds of good stuff. I witnessed the What a Cartoon! showcase, which launched about ten different highly successful series. I got to see all kinds of classic H-B stuff as they cycled through it, as well as other material from the same 60s-70s era. I took a break from cartoons in 1998, and over a year later when I checked back on Cartoon Network again it had already started going downhill.

 

But hey! We've got My Little Pony, so maybe we made out in the trade!

I don't understand how my little brother can stand watching such awful stuff. I've downloaded a couple series's and put it onto the bluray player for him to watch.
