Watch This Space #158

You know, I’m almost overjoyed, giddy with excitement, to read a classic Jeff Harris rant on the state of animated programming on the networks. WTS #158 brings back those lazy winter afternoons where I would sit behind my mother’s HP Pavillion on dial-up (of course), AOheLL and a cup of either chocolate milk or Sunny D or Jell-O pudding made from DIY instant powder. And read CNX, eventually renamed X-Bridge.

Remember, Jeff, when you picked on USA, Fox Kids, syndication (UPN) and ABC? I think CBS was in there somewhere as well. . .

I do. In fact, I still have many of those ‘toons on tape! Gosh, a decade plus gone away so fast. It was a whole generation, back when I used to rely on local listings for TV Guide instead of, back when Mom used to remind me to stock up on “blanks” (blank VHS tapes) for the weekend. When I anticipated each new episode of Superman, or even earlier, Batman before he joined Supes on Kids’ WB. I taped the classic (and I can’t believe those shows are, today, so old they contain a degree of film grain and are labeled as “classics”) X-Men, Spiderman, Super Dave, Eek!, Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego and a few others I can’t readily call to mind.

Keep on complaining, Jeff. The industry needs it.

Busy Life

So much to do, so little time to do it. . .

This will be a very short post. I just want to start by saying that it's great to come back and post this little bitty post--and to read something new by Jeff Harris again.

This time, it's scratchbuilding #2 and it is a work of genius. One question, Jeff.

Disney jumping in bed with Warner Brothers again? Wouldn't they, like, want too much in terms of licensing? Mickey licenses are through the roof these days! I mean, Square was lucky to get to use Disney characters in their Kingdom Hearts series of games. . .

It is a placeholder for a post that I will EVENTUALLY put above this one.
