    The end was supposed to involve Arnold finding his lost parents but that never panned out.

    If early seasons of Family Guy were any indication, Seth works way better under the constraints of censorship and a mainstream show format. Getting him to spice up a bland show he used to love could be exactly the right thing for him. And the Flintstones property has to stay family friendly and grounded in its own "reality", so no cutaway overload, no offensive jokes pushing good taste, no Fred grabbing his knee for 5 minutes in pain until the length of the joke becomes the joke.

    And let's not forget, the show would keep its old crappy Hanna Barbara style but with modern animation, so we Seth wouldn't be designing the characters or making them flash from pose to pose with his... economical but jerky trademark style. I'm interested.


    I doubt, REALLY Doubt this will all happen. The dude's lost in the style nonsense. And the fact Corporate gave him the book (show running duties) instead of many others i know that run circles around him NOW and they gave the show to Fox (possible Adult Swim deal notwithstanding) means that he has to put some (not all) of the padlum on the new series. And what makes it worse is that we here are scared shitless because even though my bosses worked so hard on a series that many wanted back - a series that passed it's time is coming back because HE used to work for H-B in its dying days and its a dream series? IT TOOK 10 YEARS to do a new series of the T'Cats and Seth gets his DREAM series in less than 10 hours? UGH.

    Like i said, T'cats series will make ten times more money than the Flints ever will, Corporate was TOLD this last heard but this was from Seth himself and he made all the deals work for the Flints. Its starting to get Ugly with Loony Toons starting slow and now Fox being our "friends" all of a sudden.

    It happened that quickly? Wow...

    And I thought I heard something about there being some sort of legal battle or something that he eventually won to be able to do the show? If that's true, what's that all about?

    As far as I know, any legal dealings wern't known. As far as I know Fox and Seth showed the money and Warners agreed with major concessions.
    I don't think I understand the complaint. "Popular guy with money gets what he wants"?

    He found a map to them in the journal. That's all that's needed.

    Arnold was going to win an Essay contest for his class to goes to South America. They use the map to find his parents. The Green-eyes were involved. Helga finally admitted her feelings.

    "Mystery Solvers Club State Finals".

    There's one scene that somehow manages to make Captain Caveman seem badass.

    Anyway, that Kung Fu Panda thing is out today. Anyone going to see it? I'm dubious, but it's currently sitting at 75% or so at Rotten Tomatoes.

    A very, VERY weird episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold that just aired a couple months ago. Yes, that entire sequence was done with crappy 70s-style animation.

    This may be heresy, but I thought Kung Fu Panda 2 was straight up better than KFP1. It was a better martial arts film, had a better plot, and a villain that was truly excellent. I was very thoroughly surprised at the quality of the film, but was not surprised at the reveal that they'll milk the KFP franchise like Shrek.

    What the heck WAS that anyway? Fuck, i think it was made in France, too... That show sure was a thing! Let's talk about Sonic Underground. Which episode was your favorite? Mine was ALL OF THEM.

    I'm kind of amazed that Jem/Jerrica isn't pissed off that her boyfriend a) is hitting on Jem, not knowing she's the same person as his girlfriend and b) isn't upset that he can't recognize her face. I mean, the only thing that really changes is her hair turns pink.
