If you were lucky enough to see the original Monsters Vs. Aliens animated movie a few years ago, then you are in for a treat when you check out the TV series. Some things have changed since then. There are new aliens, Insectosaurus is no longer with the team, and Ginormica/Susan Murphy can control her size. Dr. Cockroach (Chris O’Dowd), Susan (Riki Lindhome), The Link(Deidrich Bader), and B.O.B.(Eric Edelstein) are still living over at Area 50-something under the command of General W. R. Monger( Kevin Michael Richardson).
Since the invasion of Gallaxhar, some new aliens have shown up. Some evil, some cute, and some just confused. There is the evil Coverton (Jeff Bennett), whom will take any suggestion and find a way to use it to manipulate someone into working through his next nefarious plan. The adorably cute, and extremely intelligent Sqweep (Haley Tju), whose inventions are amazing but still pretty much designed by a child. A tiny pink, Asuran-like alien child. Also there is Sta’abi(Gillian Jacobs), a female alien warrior whose race is so proud that they get offended by just about anything. Sta-abi also has a pet, Vornicarn (Fred Tatasciore), and this critter loves to eat and eat. Read more...(429 words, 134 images, estimated 1:43 mins reading time)
Part of the Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color TV series this Disney Special episode was done to help promote the then new film Darby O’Gill and the Little People. It is a carefree heart warming look at how the idea for the film came about in the first place. Walt Disney has always been a story teller and has always wanted to make us believe in that which we normally don’t even consider. We get a wonderful glimpse into that mindset with this TV episode that aired on the 29th of May in 1959. At that time there were no color TV sets so it is all in back and white but that in no way takes away from the charm of this piece. It reminds me of the days in my youth when everyone would gather around the tiny 9 inch TV to watch what was happening around the world. Disney made those times even more fun, more so then they are now. Read more...(641 words, 33 images, estimated 2:34 mins reading time)
This is one of the cutest shows I have seen lately. It was originally done in Canada, or rather for Canada. It is about a girl named Jane that was tired of being a maid in waiting, just like her mother. She was so against being a servant in the kings’s castle that when the prince was found missing she went to go get the little brat back.
Yes, the prince is a real brat and is always trying to cause problems. You know how kids are that are born with a silver spoon in their mouth, they think they are better then everyone else and they always make a point of pointing that fact out. EVEN if they are WRONG!
