Anime makes me sooo hungry – Saturday Morning Cartoons

I am a huge fan of the Studio Ghibli/Hayao Miyazaki movies.

And, if you will indulge me a hipster moment, I was way into them before Disney started shoving the badly voice-acted US versions down our throats. I loved them back when I had to walk to Oxford Comics and mail order them from Japan on VHS.

But there is something about those movies (especially the more recent Spirited Away and Howl’s Moving Castle) that always makes me hungry. Seriously hungry. Runover-the-nun-in-the-crosswalk-and-dropkick-anyone-else-who-gets-in-my-way hungry.

So, take a look at some clips from some of my favorite movies and see if it doesn’t have you demanding Dim Sum (or breakfast) immediately…. [Read more...]

Saturday Morning Bliss – 80s Cartoons

by Lakia Ross

I was, perhaps, one of the first generations of kids that had the TV as a part-time babysitter. There was no time more special — for me or my family — than Saturday mornings, where I could eat pancakes and watch 4-5 hours of cartoons, and the fam could actually get things done: like sleeping, grocery shopping, and or “just enjoy peace and quiet for one got-durn minute”….

Here are the 10 cartoons from the 80s that helped create the nerd I am today (in semi-chronological order):

Bugs Bunny

Technically a product of the 40s and 50s, Looney Tunes was still going strong in the Saturday AM throughout the 80s. It was hard to choose my favorite episode: (Water, Water Every Hare, The Rabbit of Seville, Long-Haired Hare, Rabbit Fire) but, in the end, I went with What’s Opera, Doc?….Sexy Viking Bugs on that glorious, undulating fat horse…pure Chuck Jones animation GOLD!

When I win the lotto, I am making the Bugs Bunny Network. All classic Warner Bros, all the time. Cartoon Network can suck it…

 

BlackStar

Scifi turned fantasy? I am soooo THERE!!! “Hi I’m John Blackstar… Did I mention I’m John Blackstar? Anyway, I am John Blackstar…” Seriously they mention that like nine times in the intro. I think space travel has fried his frontal lobe.

 

The Smurfs

LA LA LA LAH LA LA, LAAAH LA LA LUH LAH! What parents didn’t go stark-raving insane from hearing that smurfy theme song over and over and over. I even had a Smurfette birthday cake for my 6th or 7th bday. Did anyone else have this game on the Colecovision? Now those were some controllers…. [Read more...]
