‘Regular Show’ Is One of My Favorite Cartoons of All Time

Cartoon Network is my happy place. It’s a world that I can escape to, filled with zany cartoons designed to make you laugh hysterically or to give you a great day. My day always gets better whenever I see Regular Show on the screen.

Regular Show takes a bunch of odd characters, places them in a park, and gives them a wild adventure every episode filled with plenty of humor. As a child, I loved the show and as an adult I still love it.

The cartoon is appropriate enough for children for it to be on Cartoon Network but is crafted with enough adult sensibilities that even adults can get thoroughly entertained. Spanning eight years and eight seasons I grew up with Regular Show. Its main characters, the blue jay Mordekai and the raccoon Rigby, were my friends. Its title, Regular Show, spawned hilarity, for there’s nothing regular about the cartoon. And one of my favorite actors of all time Mark Hamill voices one of the main characters on the show, a white gorilla named Skips. How can you get better than that?

If you’ve never seen Regular Show do yourself a favor. Find the first episode and give it a watch. You will not be disappointed. In fact, you’ll probably become a Regular Show fan like me.

Oooooooooh!!!! (Only those who know Regular Show will get why I just did that. 😉)

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.

‘Star Wars: Resistance’: Season 2 Gets Its First Official Trailer

Star Wars: Resistance‘s second (and final) season airs on October 6 and just to remind us that this show exists and is fast approaching an official trailer dropped today. Check it out.

While this isn’t the greatest trailer I’ve ever seen it definitely seems to promise plenty of drama, action, and fun moments as we follow these characters’ journeys through this tumultuous next stage of their adventure.

Tamara becomes a First Order pilot. The galaxy is in turmoil. The First Order’s reign of terror is spreading, and all of this will take place in the first! half of the season. And who doesn’t love seeing Supreme Leader Kylo Ren at the end of the trailer to only make things that much more interesting?

All in all, this was a good trailer to see ahead of this year’s highly-anticipated D23 Expo which supposedly will share more information about The Mandalorian and hopefully The Rise of Skywalker. And honestly, any Star Wars news is great news to my ears. 🙂

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day. May the Force be with you.

Recapping the Incredible Marvel Studios Hall H Panel at San Diego Comic-Con

Waking up this Sunday morning my head is still throbbing with a slight headache from all of the exciting news last night from Marvel Studios. It was said there was going to be a panel depicting what’s next for Phase 4 of the MCU, I knew there was going to be some information about the upcoming Black Widow movie and Eternals film but…I was not expecting what would transpire next.

Today, I’m recapping the mind-blowing event last night. You may have been like me, refreshing the Twitter and following along with the live tweets and updates on the websites. If not, prepare for your mind to be blown! Enjoy.

The First Eleven Years

The panel began with a giant montage celebrating the first eleven years of the MCU. Avengers: Endgame spearheaded the end of the montage with Thanos saying, “I am inevitable” followed by Tony Stark’s already-iconic response, “And I am Iron Man.” A few more clips of Endgame were shown before the logo for the first three phases of the MCU was released, which you can see in the picture above. The Infinity Saga. Isn’t it beautiful?

After that, the real news commenced. Continue reading Recapping the Incredible Marvel Studios Hall H Panel at San Diego Comic-Con

My Review of Walt Disney Animation Studios Short Films Collection

Last night while scrolling through Netflix for something to watch I came across this fascinating movie focusing on twelve Disney short films. Some are old, some are new, some involve characters you know and love while others feature fresh stories with never-before-seen heroes and heroines. As I sat entranced with these various movies for over an hour I couldn’t wait to share my experience with you. And now that time has arrived. I’m going to individually review each short and at the end, I will share which three shorts ended up being my favorite. Enjoy!

“John Henry”

The first short film was about the inspiring tale of John Henry, a former slave turned West Virginia hero who singlehandedly built a railroad and thus the blissful freedom of his hardworking, blue-collar compatriots. While I thought the story was really good and I enjoyed the music it felt borderline racist if I’m being honest.

As the only short film that focused on people of color John Henry’s story of triumph was shortlived as the conclusion saw him literally work himself to death. It was jarring and a harsh reminder of a time when, as a black woman in America, I would’ve been forced to perform hard, arduous work ’till the point of my ultimate demise, whether that death would be caused by exhaustion, childbirth, or by the hands of those wanting to inflict harm upon me.

To make matters even worse, the short film was not created nor given a thumbs up by an African-American, making the message of hope and inspiration they may have tried to convey a bit confusing. Continue reading My Review of Walt Disney Animation Studios Short Films Collection

The Ten Best ‘Galaxy of Adventures’ Shorts…So Far

A few months ago I would share with you the newest Star Wars: Galaxy of Adventures shorts that would debut on the Star Wars Kids channel on Youtube…and then I got slack. I stopped watching the shorts until a few days ago when I decided to binge-watch all of the episodes that I had missed.

Turns out there were about fifteen shorts that I hadn’t seen and many of them were kind of amazing. So, today, I’m here to share with you my ten favorite shorts so far.

10. Leia and Han-The Han Rescue

Who doesn’t love the relationship between Leia and Han? It’s a beautifully told love story that has transcended generations and this short only highlights Leia’s powerful role in this romance. No, she is not treated as a damsel in distress and I LOVE that. Hence, this is one of my favorite Galaxy of Adventure shorts. Continue reading The Ten Best ‘Galaxy of Adventures’ Shorts…So Far
