Glen Keane at The Late, Late Show with James Corden!


Have you seen The Late, Late Show with James Corden recently? I know we are not night dwellers and don't watch much late night talk shows, but I made an exception because of one guy, the very person who inspired me to be an inspiring artist in the first place, Glen Keane. Keane, as well all know, is the man responsible for many of the characters in Disney like Elliot from Pete's Dragon (the original, by the way), the Beast from Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Tarzan, Rapunzel from Tangled and most importantly, Ariel from The Little Mermaid.

Speaking of which, on that night, while being interviewed about the animated short, Dear Basketball, which was told from the mind of former NBA superstar, Kobe Bryant, Glen Keane,, by means of a virtual reality device, did a 3D drawing of Ariel, while Part of Your World was playing.

This just shows you that whether it's on the canvas or on the computer, Glen Keane is one awesome artist! Thank you for reopening my door of nostalgia. It always warms my heart, whether it's Ariel singing, or you drawing. Keep on drawing!

The Disney Animated Canon In-Universe Timeline

The Disney Bug has been infecting my body since the Summer,and it's just gotten stronger. So in this post,I'll be listing All of the movies of the Disney Animated Canon in Chronological order.

Now,I'm not gonna list the movies in the order that they were made. What I'm gonna be doing is the Inter-Universal Timeline. Yes,Most Disney Animated Canon movies take place within the Same Universe,on the Same Planet.

The DAC currently is split into 2 Universes: Human and Anthro. Yes there are 2 DAC universes. Because,Robin Hood and Zootopia can't exist in the same Universe as the Princesses.

Well what about the Lion King and Bambi? Well,the characters of the Lion King and Bambi aren't Anthropomorphic. And they likely know how to talk thanks to Magic. Zootopia has already been established as Earth and,likely,the Future of Robin Hood.

For the sake of not giving you people a major headache,I've decided NOT to include the movies that have multiple segments. The only exceptions will be the 2 most popular segments of Fantasia,as well as The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr.Toad.

The Many Adventures of Winnie The Pooh will also be counted,since all 3 segments of that movie star Pooh and friends.

Also,these dates are just guesses on my part,so don't judge me if I get anything wrong.

An Angel and An Icon.

*sighs* A Reaper's work is never done and Last week,he got 2 more.

The first was Della Reese. Resse was best known for her roll as Tess on Touched By An Angel. She was also a singer (mainly gospel) and a Minister. She seemed like a great person to know and a cool old lady. She was also the real deal when it came to God.

The cause of her death is unknown,though it was likely old age. She was 86.

Good bye,Della.

R.I.P.
Della Reese
July 6th 1931 - November 19th 2017

On a related note,70's Icon,David Cassidy has also passed away. He died of liver failure.He was 67.

I don't have much to say about this guy,as I wasn't a fan of his music. I only mentioned him out of respect and the fact that it was a cool thing to do.

R.I.P.
David Cassidy
April 12th 1950 - November 21st 2017

I know these 2 aren't Voice Actors,but I just wanted to add them. I'm no good with eulogies,so forgive me if these "In Memory Of" posts are very short.

Stay Gold,Space Cowboys!

Dragon Ball Theroy! Multiple Dragon Ball Universes!?

I watch Dragon Ball Super every chance I get. And I gotta say,as a Dragon Ball fanboy,I'm so hooked. However,I do have a few gripes with it,mainly Continuity Issues with Z and GT.

And that brings us to my Theory. There Are Multiple Dragon Ball Universes! The most notable ones being the Retro One and the Modern One. 

We'll start with the Classic One. In the Classic Universe Super doesn't exist,but GT Does. Not only that,but Most of the Filler exists too. Y'know what else doesn't exist in this Continuity? All Of The More Recent Dragon Ball Animations! Battle Of Gods Can't Exist because it contridicts Super Saiyan 4 and since Ressurection F is a direct sequel to Battle of Gods,it don't/can't exist either.

Episode of Bardock,Goku and Friends Return,Dragon Ball Online,Dragon Ball Minus,and Jacko the Patrolman are exclusive to the Modern Continuity. The Garlic Jr. Saga and ALL scenes with Krillin's Ex Maron aren't canon to either main continuity. 

Mainly because the 1st Movie "Deadzone" (where garlic jr. is the main villain) contradicts some things,such as Krillin seeing and meeting Gohan briefly in that movie,while aware that he was Goku's son. But in the Anime series,He (along with Bulma and Roshi) were shocked to find out that Goku had a kid.

Maron's debut was in the Garlic Jr.Saga,so she can't exist in these continuities if the Garlic Jr.Saga itself doesn't. And besides,Deadzone is mentioned throughout the saga.

Both main continuities share Bardock - Father of Goku and History of Trunks,however.

Here's a timeline: Bardock - Father of Goku-------Dragon Ball--------Dragon Ball Z (and History of Trunks)----------Dragon Ball GT.

Dragon Ball Super mostly erases the continuity of GT,so Super can't be canon to this Universe. However,it IS canon to the Modern Continuity. Dragon Ball ZKai aka Dragon Ball Kai is a mostly fillerless remastered re-dub of Dragon Ball Z,that follows the Manga much more faithfully than the Original Anime. As a result some of the character's personalities are slightly different,though more faithful to how they were in the Manga. 

Goku is the biggest example. In the original anime Goku was slightly more Heroic than he was in Toriyama's original works. But in Kai,Goku's personality matches his Manga counterparts perfectly.

The modern continuity is also larger,with many more events and characters.

Heres the modern timeline: Dragon Ball Minus-------Bardock - Father of Goku (and Episode of Bardock)--------- Jacko the Patrolman-----------Dragon Ball (fillerless and remastered)-----------Dragon Ball Kai/ZKai (and History of Trunks)----------Son Goku and Friends Return---------Dragon Ball Super----------Dragon Ball Online.

Dragon Ball GT can't work in this Universe,mainly because Super contradicts it. Plus the characters personalities are the same in Super,as they were in Kai/ZKai. Dragon Ball Online was co-created by Akira Toriyama and is the ONLY video game to be part of one of the main continuities.

Also,The Movies and Plan To Eraticate The Saiyans/Super Saiyans aren't Canon to either main continuity and are their own separate thing. In fact,they Can be considered part of a 3rd DB Universe. The only exceptions are Bardock - Father of Goku and History of Trunks,which are apart of All Universes.

Here's the timeline for this 3rd Universe: Bardock - Father of Goku----------Curse of the Blood Rubies--------Sleeping Princess in Devil's Castle---------Mystical Adventure----------Deadzone-----------Worlds Strongest--------------Tree of Might--------Lord Slug---------History of Trunks--------Cooler's Revenge-----------Return of Cooler------------Super Android 13---------Broly - Legendary Super Saiyan--------Plan To Eradicate The Saiyan's/Super Saiyans-----------Bojack Unbound----------Broly - The Second Coming-----------Bio Broly----------Fusion Reborn---------------Wrath of the Dragon---------------Battle of Gods (movie version)------------Ressurection F (movie version)--------------------A Hero's Legacy.

What happens between these movies is up to interpretation. Dragon Ball GT - A Hero's Legacy doesn't contradict Battle of Gods or Ressurection F,so I didn't make an error. I didn't list Dragon Ball - Path to Power because it was a retelling and mashup of Dragon Ball's Goku and Red Ribbon Army sagas. 

Which brings us to another Dragon Ball continuity. The 'Path to Power' Universe. As of right now,the only known events of this Universe are Bardock - Father of Goku and,of course,The Path to Power.

The Video Games themselves are each set in their own seperate continuities. The only exception is Dragon Ball Online.

There are many many more Dragon Ball Universes that I really don't feel like discussing. Point is Despite Akira Toriyama's original intentions,Dragon Ball has branched out into Multiple Continuities and as long as Dragon Ball exists and keeps it's healthy fan base,the number of continuities will keep on increasing.

That's all for now. Hope everyone enjoyed this. Haven't done anything Dragon Ball in a while,so this was a nice change of pace.

Thanks for reading.

Stay Gold,Space Cowboy!

Happy Thanksgiving from the ACF!

Hey Toonsters,

    I thought I drop by and wish to all of the ACF a very happy Turkey Day. And despite how many problems in the all the world, how many deaths that happened, one thing is certain, especially for me, I am thankful that I got friends and family who will always like me for who and what I am and will always help me out whenever I got problems, especially my brother from another planet, Stefan.

So, on behalf of the ACF, the United Federation for Animation Rights and everything in between, I wish you all a safe and Happy Thanksgiving to all. And let's hope this Christmas will give us joy even better. Stay frosty and keep on rollin'

Saraba! (Farewell!)

The Original Panthro Is With Jaga Now!

I bring sad news for Thundercats fans.

Just a day after we lost Hiromi Tsuru (voice of the original Japanese Bulma),we lost Earle Hyman. He passed away at his home in Englewood,NJ. He was 91.

Hyman is best known for his role as Cliff Huxtable's dad,Russell,on The Cosby Show (still love that show). However,that wasn't Only Iconic role he played. He was also Panthro from the Original Thundercats.

Those were the 2 roles that made this man Legendary. Panthro was one of my favorite Thundercats and whenever I envision the character's voice,it'll always be Earle Hyman's.

Kevin Michael Richardson was the voice of Panthro on the 2011 Thundercats series,but,to most of us,Hyman was the Original and Best.

Rest Easy,Panthro. You're with Jesus and Jaga now.

The Reapers Latest Target....The Original Bulma Brief!

It looks like the Reaper is continuing his Voice Actor run,because Hiromi Tsuru,best known for her roll as Bulma in the Dragon Ball franchise,passed away last Thursday. She was 57.

Why can't the Reaper go after people we DON'T like!

Tsuru was found unconscious in her car and pronounced dead on the way to the hospital. According to Japanese Authorities,there was no sign of an accident, and investigators are looking into other causes of death...including a possible illness. 

Tsuru was born on March 29, 1960, in Hokkaido. Through her career, she voiced numerous anime characters,the most iconic being Bulma of the Dragon Ball franchise.

We lost a good one. Sayonara Tsuru-San! We will all miss you.

A Correction that Was A Long Time Coming!

After much thought,I realize now that Bob Iger and Ben Sherwood were not fully responsible for the decimation of the Disney Networks. Gary Marsh and his people are.

Anne Sweeney is still fully guilty,however,because She was still the Matermind behind the Disney Nightmare and the one that influenced (ie corrupted) Marsh in the first place. She also influenced Iger to some extent.

This still don't mean that Iger and Sherwood are blameless,oh far from it. Sherwood,for whatever reason,keeps Marsh and the Sweeney Docterine around and Bob Iger doesn't do a damn thing about it. He even kept Sweeney around after Eisner's removal. So these men aren't completely to blame for the D-Networks desicration...just partially.

Gary Marsh took Sweeney's retarded logic to heart and adopted Her way of thinking. It was his choice and because of that,he's way more guilty than either Sherwood or Iger.

Plus Iger Has done some good things for Disney. And despite me being a big fan of the Eisner Era,even I'll admit,Michael Eisner himself Did fall from grace in the early 2000's.

So,to Bob Iger and Ben Sherwood,I apologize for fully blaming you 2 for Disney's problems. I still don't like you guys,nor do I trust you,but at least I know who to blame most: Anne Sweeney and Gary Marsh.

So there you go. Something I needed to get off my chest.

Dream XOver: Mario x Sonic - Icons Clash

If there's one thing we geeks love, is Crossovers of our favorite franchises,especially when they have nothing to do with each other,like the topic of todays XOver Post: Super Mario and Sonic the Hedgehog. A dream Crossover for many.

Yeah Yeah,I know,Sonic and Mario already have a Crossover series in The Mario and Sonic Olympic Games Series,but many don't consider it a proper crossover between these 2 Legendary Franchises. I don't either,despite the fact that I love seeing the Nintendo Princesses' barefoot in those gymnast outfits. (can you blame me,they look so hot)

Anyway,I've decided to come up with a proper Mario/Sonic XOver myself. Please note that in order to make my idea work,I'm gonna be using many elements from the Sonic Archie Comics,such as Roboticization and the Freedom Fighters.

Story: Taking Place After Super Mario Galaxy 2,Eggman and Bowser team up to help each other conquer their respective Universes using a new version of the Death Egg called The Koopa Egg and they need extra man-power to built it and the Chaos Emeralds to power it. They decide to recruit Mario and Sonic's friends. They also plot to frame the heroes by having Bowser Jr.,as Shadow Mario,capture Sonic's friends and Metal Sonic capture Mario's. And while Mario and Sonic are fighting each other,the 2 villains will execute their plan. The kidnappings are a success and when the Main Heroes meet they blame each other for said kidnappings.

Eggman roboticizes Mario's Friends to retreave the Chaos Emeralds,while Bowser (with kamek's help) corrupts Sonic's friends and sends them to attack various countries in the mushroom world.

Will Mario and Sonic stop their fighting to save the day and their friends? Will the Villians complete the Koopa Egg? Are Bowser and Eggman true allies? Or Are they just using each other? Yes,Yes,Maybe,and Likely.

That is the story for Mario x Sonic - Icon's Clash.

Characters: Mario,Sonic The Hedgehog,King Bowser Koopa,Dr.Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik,Bowser Jr.,Metal Sonic,Luigi,Miles "Tails" Prower,Toad,Knuckles the Echidna,Yoshi,Amy Rose,Princess Peach Toadstool,Cream the Rabbit and Cheeze the Chao,Princess Daisy,Chaos(cameo),Rosalina,The Chaos,The Lumas,Cubot and Orbot,Kamek the Magikoopa,Shadow The Hedgehog,Wario,Rouge the Bat,Birdo,Princess Sally Acorn,Toadsworth,The Knothole Freedom Fighters,Waluigi (cameo),Nack "Fang" The Weasel (cameo),Uncle Chuck,Captain Syrup(cameo),E-123 Omega,Donkey Kong(cameo),Team Chaotix (cameos),The Koopalings (cameos),The President and G.U.N.,Pauline (cameo),Breezie The Hedgehog (cameo),Big the Cat (cameo),Toadette (cameo),Bowser's Koopa Troop,and Eggman's Badniks.

Crossover Exclusive Characters: Mecha Luigi,Vicious Tails,Mecha Yoshi,Vicious Knuckles,Mecha Peach,Vicious Amy,Mecha Toad,Vicious Sally,Mecha Daisy,Vicious Cream and Nasty Cheeze,Mecha Rosalina,Vicious Shadow,Mecha Donkey Kong,and Vicious Rouge.

Mario Places: The Mushroom Planet,Grass Land,Desert Hills,Water Land aka Seaside aka The Islands,Macro Mountain (a mountain land populated by giants),Cloud Land aka The Sky,Iced Island,Pipe Maze,Dark Land,Sarasaland,Mario Land,Wario's Palace,Peach's Castle,Kastle Koopa,Rosalina's Observatory.

Sonic Places: Sonic's Planet,The Special Zone,The United Federation,Station Square,The Presedent's House,G.U.N. HQ,Knothole Village,Mobotropolis,
Westside Island,South Island,and The Floating Island.

Crossover Exclusive Places: Egg Island (original location),The Koopa Egg.

Notes: Mario and Sonic get to use each others Power Ups. Mario also uses the Chaos Emeralds to become Ultra Mario. There are 2 special types of Warp Pipes that exist in Mario's Universe: Silver ones and Gold ones. Silver ones lead to other worlds,while the Gold Pipes lead to other Universes. The Gold Pipes only appear once every year. Despite Bowser's objections,Princess Peach is Roboticized. Koopa's spell not only brainwashes Sonic's friends,but it also turns them into vicious monsters. Besides the Koopa Egg,Dr.Eggman also created the Rokoopnik,a special battle vehicle made in the image of both Himself and Bowser. The Rokoopnik can also transform into a giant robot.

Cool huh? And this isn't the Only Mario/Sonic XOver I have. There's one more and it's a Huge one. And I mean Huge! In fact,It's so huge that it co-stars a certain Green-Clad Elven Hero. Legends Will Clash in the next Mario x Sonic!

Until Next Time,
See Ya,Space Cowboys!

Captain N/Super Mario Bros. XOver Special


Hey there, Toonsters and Gamers alike!

It's been since a long time since I did some ideas about crossovers and since Stefan has done a few, I thought I could give my ideas of another crossover. But this one is not just any crossover. Remember those Nintendo themed cartoons back in late 80s and into the early 90s? Well, this one's a doozy, so I will sum it up the best I can.

In the beginning, there was The Super Mario Bros. Super Show, which was followed by Captain N: The Game Master. When they first came out, their respective first seasons were shown separately on different channels. It was not until NBC in 1990 they aired both shows in an hour long block, promoting both season 2 of Captain N and The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3. A year later, before NBC killed off Saturday Mornings forever, they showed both shows, but it was cut to a half hour show called Captain N and the New Super Mario World. And even though we got the best of two worlds, neither Captain N nor the Super Mario Bros. never once crossed paths with each other...

Until now.

Now that the background of the Nintendo cartoons is done. Here is the plot of this awesome crossover.

Story: A long time ago, Videoland was once a peaceful happy place in all the world of fiction. All that changed when an army of gaming's most evil villains decided to claim Videoland as their own. Led by the villainous King Koopa, they led an assault on the heart of Videoland, the Palace of Power. That's right, folks, Koopa attempted to rule Videoland years before Mother Brain. As Koopa attempts to claims dominion over Videoland, he was stopped by Videoland's ruler, King Charles. Fortunately, Charles fought valiantly against the reptile king and banished Koopa from Videoland, sealing him up into the Warp Zone to his own world known as Koopa Valley, never to return. Since that time, while Koopa was exiled in his own world and starts his invasion of another world, the Mushroom Kingdom, Videoland enjoyed relative peace for many years.

And even though Koopa was banished, other gaming villains continued to carry on where he started, especially with Mother Brain. Since that time, King Charles disappeared and his daughter, Princess Lana took over the Palace of Power. Not even her and the other gaming heroes alone couldn't stop her. However, thanks to the Ultimate Warp Zone, Kevin Keene, a gamer from the real world, ends up being Videoland's new champion as Captain N: The Game Master. And time and time again, Kevin foils Mother Brain's insidious plot to rule Videoland.

But with her plans foiled again, Mother Brain, with her big brain, tries to find a way to get rid of Captain N once and for all, when she learns about Videoland's past and dark legend of King Koopa himself. Learning of the location of the Warp Pipe imprisonment,  Mother Brain finds it and opens it up, freeing Koopa from his Warp Zone prison. Initially thankful for free him, Koopa pledges his allegiance to Mother Brain and pledges to help destroy Captain N. And as Kevin confronts Koopa, he learned the hard way that he is more dangerous and calculating than Mother Brain ever was, as he diverted Kevin and the N-Team, allowing Koopa to go after the real target, the Palace of Power. And by doing so, he destroys the Power Glove (which is not only Kevin's way home, but also the source of his power), leaves the Palace of Power in ruins and nearly ending Princess Lana's life. While Kevin and other try to put two and two together, Koopa returns to Mother Brain in the world of Metroid to let her know that Captain N won't threatened the villains no more, now that the Palace of Power is in ruins. Enraged about what Koopa has done, Mother Brain reprimanded him for nearing destroying the palace and almost ended Princess Lana's life. All Mother Brain ever wanted was to rule Videoland, just to for the sake of greed and being vain. And feeling duped that Mother Brain is in this for her own greed, Koopa decided to take over Mother Brain's operations himself. Mother Brain tries to blast away Koopa, but she is no match for his dark magic, thus turning her into a brain in a snow globe. Fearing that Koopa would do the same thing to them, Mother Brain's henchmen, Eggplant Wizard and King Hippo, joined Koopa's ranks, thus Koopa plans to not only conquer the Mushroom Kingdom, but all of Videoland. As for Captain N, knowing that Koopa is too powerful and even more dangerous, and since King Charles isn't here to stop him, he figured that the only way to stop Koopa is locate the very heroes who fought against him in the past and knows the Koopa King better than he does and that is Mario and Luigi, the Super Mario Bros.. Will Kevin save all of Videoland or will King Koopa succeed where Mother Brain has failed? Only time will tell.

That is the story of this crossover in a nutshell. Here is a little synopsis, and everything else in between, on the whole story itself.

Synopsis: Captain N teams up with the Super Mario Bros. to stop the evil King Koopa. Where in the Mario cartoons he's a gruff, ruthless reptile king who just wants to rule the Mushroom Kingdom, Koopa, in this story, is as more dangerous, ruthless and more powerful as Mother Brain ever was. So much so, he disposes Mother Brain earlier in the story and forces her henchmen to do his bidding. As for Captain N, in order to defeat Koopa, he not only enlisted the Mario Bros. to help him, but also getting new powers and upgrades, such as new control pad belt buckle that resembles the SNES gamepad and a bazooka that resembles the Super Scope 6. He is going to need them as he, the N-Team and the Marios travel all over Videoland and save every world from Koopa's wrath.

Character Designs: The character designs will be the same as they were in their respective cartoons, such as Mario having red overalls and Megaman, Kid Icarus and Simon Belmont being nothing like their gaming counterparts. As for King Koopa, he will be the same as he was in the 3 Mario cartoons, all green and not mult-colored like his gaming counterpart and other than having some comedic moments, he will be a very, dangerous foe to both Captain N and the Mario Bros. Not to mention breaking the 4th Wall, as he confronts the N-Team members head on, in rather comedic fashion (e.g. mocking Megaman for not being like his gaming counterpart or calling Simon Belmont a warthog-faced buffoon instead of a fearless vampire hunter). All the characters will be in it, since all the cartoons I have mentioned are all linked together, so expect Yoshi, Wart's minions and the Koopalings (who will be called by their cartoon names, except for Kevin who calls them by their gaming names as their berserk button in the beginning) will be in it as well.

Voices: Most of the cast would return to voice their respective characters like Matt Hill, Venus Terzo, Garry Chalk and so forth. However, some the voices have since either moved on, or some of them passed away such as Levi Stubbs, Tony Rosato and just recently, Harvey Atkin. So finding voices that sounded very similar would be much harder to find. If you have suggestions, leave me a comment for that.

As for music, I know I want them to sound like the ones from the games. If you have any suggestions of who should do the music since people like Shuki Levy and Michael Tavera have since moved on to bigger, better things, leave me a comment.

Other than that, hope you like this crossover idea. I think this crossover is a bit long overdue.

Until next time...Saraba! (Farewell!)

Even More Show Ideas

I have come up with even more Show ideas for Modern Vintage TV. Take a Look.

Triple Tiger - 55 years ago in Hong Kong 2 Sisters,Lei Lei and Mei Mei Lee,are taught Kung-Fu by an old Master known only as The Eternal Tiger Master. The 2 sisters were prodigies and mastered the arts in 2 years. Mei Mei learned faster that Lei Lei and began getting arrogant because of it.

Oneday,The Eternal Tiger Master decided to retire from teaching and planned on giving ownership to his studio to one of the Sisters..he chose Lei Lei. In a fit of jealous rage,Mei Mei killed most of the students and left the studio,promising to start her own.

Still craving power,Mei Mei both summons and sells her soul to the Legendary Demon Witch,Lita Lacerater. Lacerater grants Mei Mei super human powers in exchange for her first born son. Mei Mei agrees.

Years later,both Sisters have children (lei lei legitimately,mei mei illegitimately),both boys. Mei Mei gives her Son up to Lita Lacerater as promised,but Lita decides that one baby to raise as an Elite Dark Warrior isn't enough and promises Lei Lei absolute power,if she brings her Lei Lei's child,as well as Lei Lei's head. Mei Mei agrees.

Mei Mei's mission leads to a battle between the sisters,with Mei Mei getting killed. Lita Lacerater appears and kills Lei Lei and her husband,but before she could take the baby,The Eternal Tiger Master appears and defeats Lacerater. Double L escapes promising revenge.

The Eternal Tiger Master decides to raise Lei Lei's child himself and move to America. The childs name is Brucie Chan (chan being the fathers surname). ETM settles down in a place called Metro City. Meanwhile,Lita Lacerater returns to her realm to raise Mei Mei's son,Daos.

Fearing that Lita Lacerater will return,The Eternal Tiger Master creates 3 special daggers,called the Tiger Blades,which will give the owner an edge against the evil forces. And when the users bring the 3 blades together,they become a Super Fighting Force known as Triple Tiger.

Many years later,Daos (now known as the darklord daos) returns to his realm with intentions of World Domination. Daos soon starts a criminal gang and later creates supernatural beings and monsters to help him.

Brucie,on the other hand,grew up to be an awesome Kung-Fu Master and fighter for Justice and even worked as a special enforcer for Metro City PD. Soon he gets married and has Triplets: 2 Girls and 1 Boy. Each born with a Mystical Tiger Birthmark on their left arms. The Triplets names are: Billy,Jill,and Amy.

Sensing the birth of the Triplets and realising the great potential they possess,Darklord Daos plots to kidnap his Cousin's children and raise them himself.

And So,Darklord Daos and his Gang,the Dark Arts Syndicate,kills the mother and father and begins Kidnaping the children. However,the Eternal Tiger Master manages to save two: Jill and Billy.

After a Major custody fight,Brucie's Wife's Brother,a biker,wins guardianship of one of the twins,Jill.

The Triplets are raised in very different ways: Billy becomes a rightious Tiger Kung-Fu Master under The Eternal Tiger Master. Amy becomes the powerful and Snarkey Co-Leader of the Dark Arts Syndicate. And Jill becomes a badass biker,like her uncle.

It is destined that the Triplets shall reunite. And with the help of the Tiger Blades,and the collossal battle mech known as Tiger-Robo,the Trio will defeat the forces of darkness.

That time is coming soon.
------------------------------------------------------------------
Bikes and Dragons (beta title): It is the 30th century,a nasty 10-Year World War has made the Earth barren and almost unlivable. Mighty Nations have crumbled and what's left of Mankind is forced to live on newly discovered islands,which are more environmentally friendly.

Another after effect of this war,was the awakening of an all mighty lost species,long thought to be legend,The Dragons. The Dragons have come and want to rule the Earth.

Dragons now live among Man,and things aren't that great. The Dragons are a problem and the International Alliance,formerly the U.N,has deemed them Endangered species,illegal to kill.

It is decided by the International Alliance that The Dragons would be brought to a newly discovered Island,which will serve as a Sanctuary. They hire a Special Dragon Task Force to capture the Dragons.

One Man,a cool-blooded Biker and Bounty Hunter,Jack Ten'nou,intends on capturing the Dragons and bringing them to the I.A. himself..for a price.

Jack isn't working alone. There's Shabazz,Jack's humorist friend and Mechanic. And Janna Hogan,a persistent dragon enthusiast,turned scientist,who wants to study the Dragons.

Jack faces many other things other than the Dragons. Rival Bounty Hunters,Poachers,Dragon Slayers,the Dragon Taskforce,and even Politicians stand in his way.
------------------------------------------------------------------
MVW Presents Animated Wrestling Federation: It's MVW's answer to WWE's Southpaw Regional Wrestling..only with cartoony and colorful characters.
------------------------------------------------------------------
MVW - The Animation: An Animated series based around MVW. Details coming eventually
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Untitled SpeedRunner Show: 2-4 contestents compete to see who can finish a retro game first. features a 2-4 player split screen.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
V.S. Mode: Another show centered around retro video games. This one features fighting,wrestling and sports titles.
------------------------------------------------------------------
Club 90's: A fun variety show celebrating most things 90's. Not all things,due to this being a family show.
------------------------------------------------------------------
Radio Retro: Playing Music from the 70's,80's,and 90's
------------------------------------------------------------------
Retro Radio - Retro Gamers Edition: Playing game music from the 80's and 90's.
------------------------------------------------------------------
Laser Gunners (beta name): A laser-tag combat show. Will feature multiple mach types.

And those are the latest batch of show ideas for Modern Vintage TV.

Thanx 4 reading!

Koopalings Name Mashups!



 Hey Toonsters,


    As we all know that I am a sucker when it comes to video game based cartoons. But no cartoon was that awesome than The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3. Of all the 3 Mario cartoons around the late 80s and into the early 90s, AOSMB3 was the best one of them all. But the only pet peeve I got with the show (besides being a bit repetitive and the fact that Bowser is called King Koopa (although in Japan he was always called King Koopa)) was the names of the Koopalings. Here's a little background about this jumbled up situation.

Before being released in the States, in Japan, the Koopalings never got their official names. So the game was localized for a worldwide release, the cartoon versions of the Koopalings got names that are different from the ones from the games:

Cheatsy Koopa
Big Mouth Koopa
Kootie Pie Koopa
Hop Koopa
Bully Koopa
Hip Koopa
Kooky von Koopa

But by the time game was finally was released worldwide, the Koopalings got their official names. Each one of them were named after a well-known musicians:

Larry Koopa (named after Larry Mullen, Jr. of U2)
Morton Koopa, Jr. (named after musician and controversial talk show host, Morton Downey, Jr. (no relation to Robert Downey, Jr., by the way.)
Wendy O. Koopa (named after Wendy O. Williams)
Iggy Koopa (named after Iggy Pop)
Roy Koopa (named after Roy Orbison)
Lemmy Koopa (named after Lemmy Kilmister (RIP) of MotorHead (yes, the ones who did Triple H's themes))
Ludwig von Koopa (named after Ludwig von Beethoven (DUH!!))

Since that time, many of the Mario fanbase are divided over which name of the Koopalings suits them best. So, I came up with the solution. What of we mashed the names up? I thought about that so I came up with the best possible solution to our name problem so here it is:

Larry Koopa + Cheatsy Koopa = "Cheatsy" Larry
Morton Koopa, Jr. + Big Mouth Koopa = "Big Mouth" Morton
Wendy O. Koopa + Kootie Pie Koopa = "Kootie Pie" Wendy
Iggy Koopa + Hop Koopa = Iggy Hop (which makes perfect sense since he is named after Iggy Pop)
Roy Koopa + Bully Koopa = "Bully" Roy (Think wrestler Bully Ray, but with Roy instead of Ray)
Lemmy Koopa + Hip Koopa = Lemmy Hip-Meister (paying homage to Lemmy Kilmister himself)
Ludwig von Koopa + Kooky von Koopa = "Kooky" Ludwig

And there you have it. What do you think of my mashup names? If Nintendo pays attention to this, I just hope and pray they use the names from the cartoons as their nicknames for future games. A gamer can dream, can't I?

Farewell Brain!

Today,we at the American Cartoon Federation mourn the loss of Bobby "The Brain" Heenan. Not just a simple heel manager or commentator,but a Legend of great character.

Thoughout his time as a Manager,Bobby Heenan guided the carrers of many WWE Superstars,with Andre The Giant,'Ravishing' Rick Rude and 'Mr Perfect' Curt Hennig being his star players.

Although a good manager,Bobby Heenan is best known for his work as a Color Commentator and Show Host. His chemistry with Gorilla Monsoon was outstanding. Fun Fact: The Brain and Gorilla were good friends in real life.

Bobby Heenen wasn't just a good manager,he was also a great commentator,and a funny man to boot.

After his WWE tenure,Bobby Heenan left for WCW,where he'd continue to entertain us Wrestling Fans for years to come.

Farewell Brain....And Thank You!

Jason's Gallery - Hurricane Irma tribute art

In the wake of the destruction, given by Hurricane Irma, I give you some fan art that will bring light to a world full of darkness.

Here we have Ami Mizuno, praying to the good-hearted people of Florida, who are no strangers to hurricanes. This was made and finished around Ami's birthday and before the anniversary of 9/11. In times of need, we pray that her intellect can gets through the dark times.

Florida wasn't the only state affected by Irma. It landed at Alabama, South Carolina and especially Georgia. Why Georgia, you ask? Because Jodi Benson lives in Georgia and because of this hurricane, I prayed for her safety. I drew this in response to that realization. Unless she was someplace else safe, all I could think about was her well-being intact. If something bad happen to her, everything I work so hard to make my dreams come true would all be in vain. Hope she's okay.

To those affected by Irma. Give them strength to rebuild their homes and their lives. Let the light shatter the darkness. Stay frosty and God bless.

The Sleeper has not been awaken...yet.

Hey there, Toonsters,


       I thought I drop by and give you my latest on where I have been doing. As you already know, I am still on my journey to understand friendship better. As we recall, I've been dwelling in the crossroads when I learned that friendship wasn't always true blue, whether it could be bought by those who use a fandom for the base ends of a channel full of edutainment (e.g. Tirek Schleiff using bronies to make them watch Discovery Family, just for MLP) or it can be broken like Barry Allen messing up the timeline, that nearly destroyed his bond with both Cisco Ramon and Caitlin Snow. But, even though the Sleeper hasn't been awaken...yet, I won't let my dilemma stop me from running my life, especially bring justice for those in not just animation, but all of fiction. I know I will find my answers eventually. Until then, I will continue to run my life according and not let this burden define my life. I know I will feel like Ash Williams from Evil Dead day by day, but I will fight on as I should. As I said before, for justice, for freedom, for honesty, for animation. And when it's all set and done, the world will be as Ash puts it in one little word...

Groovy.

2 Toonami's Not Too Much

As you all remember I did a piece on how to fix the Adult Swim Problem: https://cartoonhistorian.blogspot.com/2017/02/solutions-for-toxic-pool.html

Well,I've come up with a follow up. This time concerning Toonami. Now,before reading any further,make sure you read the Original post first (linked above),so you'll know what I'm talking about.

Anyway,I've come up with a solution for 2 Toonami blocks,one for Adult Swim (on tbs or a stand-alone network) and one for Cartoon Network. Normal Toonami would be on Cartoon Network,it will air Anime/Cartoons that are TV-PG and Under. While Adult Swim will get Toonami: Mature Edition,which would air Anime/Cartoons TV-14 and TV-MA.

I think this is a great idea,and goes well with my previous post on the whole CN/AS debacle. Anyway,I'm gonna be posting a final follow up to this,with a Cartoon Network line-up. So stay tuned for that.

Stay Gold,Space Cowboys.

The Koopa King Is Kaput! Harvey Atkin,We Hardly Knew Ya!

I just received the news late last night,so I apologize if this mini-eulogy seems late. Actor and Voice Actor Harvey Atkin,who is best known as the voice of King Koopa in DiC's Super Mario Cartoons,has died. He died just a few short weeks ago.

The cause of death..To quote Split Mushroom of Mega Man X4: "Take A Wild Guess!" 

Yup,Cancer! Always Cancer! He was 74.

Harvey Atkin was a Canadian VA,who was best known to us Toonatics as the voice of King Koopa. In fact,it's likely the first time we ever heard of him. Harvey did the voice of King Koopa for all 3 DiC Mario Cartoons and was the Very first Voice Actor for the character overall...at least,in English.

Harvey even worked with Tracey Moore,the 1st english voice of Sailor Moon,in a few shows,though surprisingly,Sailor Moon wasn't one of them. Thank You,Harvey Atkin. We,Toonatics,will miss you.

The End of the Golden Age - The Death of June Foray!

I am still on vacation to take care of my friendship issues, but I stop by to give you the bad news, especially if you are a fan of animation like myself. I just don't know how to put it, so here goes.

June Foray, the first lady of voice acting, has died at the age of 99, shy of becoming 100 years old. Foray, a voice acting legend, was best known for voicing Rocky the Flying Squirrel and Natasha Fatale from The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show. She also voiced Granny and Witch Hazel from Looney Tunes, Lucifer the Cat from Cinderella, Cindy Lou Who from How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Jokey Smurf from The Smurfs, Grammi Gummi from The Adventures of the Gummi Bears, Ma Beagle and Magica de Spell from Ducktales, among others.

Her death is greatly mourned to those are fans of animation, especially those who followed in her footsteps like Tara Strong, Veronica Taylor and Jodi Benson. However, as legendary as she is, she is one of a long line of voice actors who are spurned, scoffed and ignored by the media, stating that voice acting is not as professional and well known as everything else in all the media and in real life. Voice actors in general are treated like second class citizens, not getting all the admiration and respect like all the regular actors, musicians, politicians and sports heroes combined.

Bottom line, unless the media changes its tune, voice actors will continue to be ignored, just like animation itself. Maybe someday, if by chance and if we play our cards rights, voice actors like June Foray will finally get the respect they so rightfully deserve. Until then, let us remember the voice of a squirrel who can soar through the heavens. Now, she is in heaven, soaring with Alan Young, Paul Frees and Mel Blanc. Godspeed, Ms. Foray and thanks for the memories you have given us.

(TAPS plays)

June Lucille Foray
(September 18, 1917 - July 26th, 2017)


This has been an ACF Special Bulletin. We now return to your regularly, scheduled redemption/friendship tour, already in progress.

Saraba (Farewell)...for now.

What If Saban Dubbed Sailor Moon in the 90's Instead of DiC?

As everyone remembers way back in January of 2010 I talked about "Saban Moon" and how it wasn't associated with Saban at all. Instead,it was created by Toon Makers.

But since it was co-produced by Renaissance-Atlantic,an ally of Saban Entertainment,people wrongfully assumed that Saban was responsible for this version of Sailor Moon. Thus why it was called Saban Moon.

Anyway,back in the 90's Saban was could do no wrong,and they had a great relationship with Toei.

So what if,in the 90's,Toei decided to give the Sailor Moon dubbing rights to Saban instead of DiC? Would that dub be better? And what about Cloverway? Would they still play a roll,or do dubbing duties stay with Saban?

A 90's Saban Sailor Moon dub would be superior. Why? Because the Writing and Voice Acting would be way better,that's why. Also,Haim Saban and Shuki Levy would've create excellent music for the series. Plus,DiC Can't Handle Anime,Saban Can. This has been proven fact.

So? what about Voice Actors? Who would Voice who? I have no idea. But I'm very sure Saban would use Californian VA's (the ones that they always use for their anime dubs).

Plus,I believe Saban would either change names or keep them as is. Maybe do a bit of both. Change the names to what? Who knows? I'd be up to Saban. I doubt they'd keep the DiC or Cloverway names,though.

Also,the series would've aired on FOX Kids and/or Fox Family. Reruns would've aired on Disney's Jetix block.

Now,with all of this said,it's time for the billion dollar question: Would Saban dub the final season,Sailor Stars? Well the answer isn't very clear...for a few reasons:

1 - Sailor Stars is somewhat controversial.

2 - Toei may decide to pull the plug on the Sailor Moon dub before Sailor Stars,despite Saban doing a good job.

And 3 - There's a chance that Disney would've purchased Saban,before they even had a chance to dub Sailor Stars. So it would've been too late.

So,why did DiC get dubbing duties for Sailor Moon and not Saban? I have no idea. DiC either got to the bidding table first with a good deal or Saban wasn't interested or was preoccupied with something else.

Whatever the reason,Saban not acquiring the dubbing rights to Sailor Moon was a huge missed opportunity. But we can always dream...dream of what should have been.

Make no mistake,had Saban acquired the dubbing rights,we would've been treated to a really great Sailor Moon dub in the 90's. Let's face it,DiC did a bad job and Cloverway did even worse.

Soooooo,what are the Downsides to Saban dubbing Sailor Moon? Well,for starters,Saban will still be editing the Anime for General Audiences. And Haruka and Michiru would have to be just good friends,instead of lovers. Same with Zoisite and Kunzite. But on the bright side,Saban edits anime way better than DiC and Cloverway do. So there's that.

Also,since Saban would be handling the dub,Sailor Moon will be exclusive to Fox Kids,Fox/ABC Family,and later,Jetix. So it can't and won't be on Toonami. Which really sucks.

No time for the Good Aspects of a hypothetical Saban dub. Well like I stated earlier,Saban handles anime way better than DiC and Cloverway. There's a chance we could've had ZERO missing episodes for this dub. Plus,I think the 1st Season Finale would've remained un-spliced.

Another good apect besides the editing would be the Voices and Voice Acting. Trust me,If you watched any of Saban's 90's anime dubs,you'll instantly notice the quality of the Voice Acting is vastly superior to Optimum Productions. The scripts would be better too.

And finally,an original musical score done by Shuki Levy and Haim Saban. How great is that?

I think it's safe to say that Saban would've handled Sailor Moon way better than DiC and Cloverway. Shame it never happened,though we do have our imaginations.

Until next time,
Stay Gold,Space Cowboys!

Holy Tragedies! Adam West Goes To That Great Batcave In Sky!

Ladies and Gentlemen,I regret to inform you that...the Original TV Batman,has died.

The (oftentimes bias) Reaper has struck again,and Adam West was his latest victim. West died at age 88. Leukemia was the cause.

We all knew Adam as the first TV Batman,but after that,he went on to do other roles,most notably Voice Acting. He did VA roles for shows like Superfriends,Fairly OddParents,Batman:The Animated Series,Kim Possible,The Simpsons,Johnny Bravo,Soace Ghost:Coast to Coast,Spongebob Squarepants,and many others.

But despite all these,West will Always be remembered as The 1st TV Batman. The Adam West Batman show was my very first exposure to the Batman franchise,so I will always hold a special place in my heart and mind for that series.

Thank You Adam West,for All that you've done. We,the people,will miss you. And now,the Fans would like to speak.

The Fans: Thank You Adam (clap,clap...clap,clap,clap),Thank You Adam (clap,clap...clap,clap,clap),Thank You Adam (clap,clap...clap,clap,clap),Thank You Adam (clap,clap...clap,clap,clap),Thank You Adam (clap,clap...clap,clap,clap),Thank You Adam (clap,clap...clap,clap,clap),Thank You Adam (clap,clap...clap,clap,clap),Thank You Adam (clap,clap...clap,clap,clap),Thank You Adam (clap,clap...clap,clap,clap),Thank You Adam (clap,clap...clap,clap,clap),Thank You Adam (clap,clap...clap,clap,clap),Thank You Adam (clap,clap...clap,clap,clap).

God Speed,Old Chum!

RIP Adam West

6 Potential Candidates For The List

Here are a a bunch of canidates that I'm seriously considering to be on The List.

Hollywood (they have a long rapsheet to their name,I don't feel like listing)

The Mega Man [Fan] Community (for taking hypocrisy to a new level,among other things)

Disney President Gary Marsh (he has 3 strikes against him..and he only has 2 left)

Youtube (from cowering at the feet of currupt media orgs,to forcing ads upon the watcher. These guys are on thin ice)

Verizon (ever since they removed 'Heroes and Icons' from their line-up,they've become potential candidates for the list)

Capcom Japan (for bastardizing their old franchises,disrespecting mega man,ect.)

Well there you have it,6 potential candidates for The List!

If you're reading this Jason,I would like it if you would add to The List too. Tell me who you want on the list,and I'll put them on there.

So Long...For Now - The Rekka Dragon Starts His Journey of Self-Awareness and Finding Answers on Friendship.

Hey there, Toonsters.

  I thought I drop by and give a heads up on where I have been.  Usually, I am the optimistic, courageous animation crusader. But as of late, I wasn't think like myself lately. I am going through a lot of changes. Although it started on October 13, 2014, when Discovery killed off the Hub and created Discovery Family, and started to buy off friendship using MLP as a scapegoat for the sinister goals, it was watching shows from the Arrowverse, such as The Flash, that got me questioning friendship as a whole, knowing that it can be broken as well. Ever since I wrote that fan letter to Carlos Valdes and gotten no reply, indicating that I didn't get my answer, whether or not friendship is truly dead. And judging from that notion, to me at least, it probably is cause the whole world is dog-eat-dog, every man for himself, looking out for number one and they don't care about friendship. And because of that, I spurned the very people I trusted, especially one of my fellow moonies, who I helped with those scrapbooks, including one for Cristina Vee (which, to this day, didn't receive due to the staff from Anime Revolution rushing up the lines). I almost ended that friendship right here and there, but I patched things up with her. But, that is no excuse for what I did, all because no one, in the world of acting, wouldn't answer that very important question about friendship. Like Cisco once said, "Sometimes when things get broken, they can't be fixed." And that's what I am feeling right now.

So, after some consideration, and since Summer is just around the corner, I decided to take a break from social media for awhile. Because of this, along with other issues, such as death of more voice actors like Dick Gautier, opening more of my dark parts of my past such as bullies using Kamen Rider to torment me and everything in between, I want to take a break from everything, just to re-assess my life and better myself until I fully understand friendship better. I know you guys understand it better than me, but this is something I got take of myself.

Don't think of it as goodbye, this is more like see you later. Until I get back, my brother in arms, Stefan, will be in charge of things here in the ACF. I don't know how long until I get back, I just hope things turn out good for me. But, until then, stay frosty and Godspeed, my friends. And believe me, I am going to need a lot of luck. And as long as the spirits of my virtues are with me, I will never truly be alone.

(Whereabouts of a Smile - Pocketwatch Version plays)








"Friendships can be bought or broken. Either way, I must journey to better myself until I fully understand it altogether. As long as my virtues guide me, I won't feel so alone. God help us all."









So long...for now.

Let's Fail: Anime Jason vs. Discovery Family - Episode 2: Discovery Kids: The Network That Wasn't!


As I promised, here is episode 2 of my retrospective/rant on Discovery Family. Since this part is about Discovery Kids, this one is relatively short.

However, don't expect episode 3 to be out anytime soon. Since Summer is just around the corner (and some personal issues to sort out, including my dilemma over friendship), I am going to take a break from social media for awhile. I will explain everything on my next blog. Until then, stay frosty and enjoy the episode.

Pro Wrestling Cartoons

After much thought,I've decided to talk a little bit about Wrestling Cartoons. Now,I'm not talking about Shows with Wrestling episodes,I'm talking about Cartoons with a Wrestling theme.

So far,I only know of 5 Wrestling Cartoons:3 WWE based,2 non-WWE based. And each range from Terrible to Mediocre.

Another note about this topic is that I'm Only gonna be talking about Wrestling Cartoons that are American. So no Anime. Anywhoo,let's talk about these 5 shows (in order of creation)

Hulk Hogan's Rock 'N' Wrestling: During the 1st Wrestling Boom in the 1980's,WWE teamed up with DiC to create a Saturday Morning Cartoon based on their Superstars at the time. This cartoon starred Hulk Hogan and his allies doing various activities thought the world. Meanwhile,"Rowdy" Roddy Piper and his gang of "Heels" do all that they can to sabotage Hogan and co. In the end,Piper and his gang are foiled and everything turns out alright.

Hogan's team consists of: Wendi Richter,"Captain" Lou Albano,Tito Santana,Hillbilly Jim,The Junkyard Dog,"Superfly" Jimmy Snuka,and Andre the Giant. While Piper's Heels consist of: Fabulous Moolah,Mr.Fuji,Nikolai Volkoff,The Iron Sheik,and Big John Studd.

While the art style is decent and the theme song is beyond epic,the plots and dialogue are just terrible. Definatly stay away from this one folkes. Anywhoo,movin' on.

Mucha Lucha (and mucha lucha gigante): Mucha Lucha was as a Saturday Morning Cartoon that aired on KidsWB in the early 2000's.

The show is set in a fictional Mexican town centered on Lucha Libre (nearly everyone in the town has a mask and costume and a signature move). It's about the adventures of three Luchadores in training (Rikochet,Buena Girl,and the Flea). The 3 kids go to school at The World-Renowned The International School of Lucha,where they teach Lucha Libre.

This cartoon had it's fun parts,but all and all,this show is,at it's core,mediocre. Next Up...

Nicelodeon's El Tigre: A Lucha Libre inspired Superhero show that aired on the Nick Networks during the Mid 2000's.

It's Set in the fictional crime-ridden Mexican metropolis of Miracle City, El Tigre follows the adventures of Manny Rivera, a regular 13-year-old boy with superpowers trying to choose between good or evil.

Manny's father is a superhero known as White Pantera, and wants Manny to grow up to be a hero. Manny's Grandpapi,on the other hand,is a supervillain known as Puma Loco,who wants Manny to be a villain.

Here's sonething interesting: Before the final episodes,Nickelodeon held an on-line poll asking it's viewers to choose Manny's final fate: Hero? or Villian? The voters chose Hero. Fan input is always a great thing,too bad Disney never does this.

Despite being mostly a Superhero show,El Tigre is heavily influenced by Lucha Libre. And it's because of this,that I consider El Tigre a Wrestling Cartoon.

Anyway,this show is mediocre at best. Avoid it of don't,it's up to you. Moving on.

WWE Slam City: It's about various WWE Superstars doing various odd-jobs,due to them being fired by their new Boss,The Finisher.

The characters on this show are Super Deformed. Definatly for young kids. The show kinda sucks too.

Camp WWE: A short series about WWE Superstars,as children,at Summer Camp. Unlike the other Wrestling shows on this list,Camp WWE is for the 21 and older crowd. This show is trash. While the animation is top notch,the writing is god awful. I don't know which show is worse: Hulk Hogan's Rock 'n' Wrestling or this crap.

WWE also did animated crossovers with Scooby-Doo,The Flintstones,and the Jetsons. These movies were all mediocre.

Funnily enough,despite the 2nd Wrestling Boom in the Late 90's,neither the WWE or the WCW,recieved an animated series during that time. Strange,huh? In fact,there has Never been a WCW animated series.

Speaking of wrestling cartoons,I came up with the idea for an MVW animated series. As well as an idea for an all-cgi animated wrestling show,based on WWEs cartoon era. Details coming soon.

Let's wrap this up with a Fun Fact. In Japan,there are many Anime based on Pro-Wrestling (the most recognized being Kinnikuman). Plus,Pro-Wrestling Anime is in abundance,due to Pro-Wrestling being considered normal sport in that country. I'm sure Jason would love to talk more about these Animes,as I hear that his favorite wrestler,Jushin Thunder Liger,has roots in Anime.

Well,that's it for now. See Ya,Space Cowboy.
