    Nah, some SU episodes got leaked in Europe and other places but it wasn't intentional. I understand they doing like season part a and par b like Disney is doing with The Owl House and Amphibia, I don't understand they sitting on episodes like they did with SU, OK KO and Gravity Falls.
    On the other hand Nick speed run Korra.

    Some of you guys probably aren't watching Centaurworld, which first season just dropped on Netflix.

    You should remedy that.

    Looks like the spiritual successor to Adventure Time.

    Looks like a fever dream after one inhales a whole rainbow. I'm intrigued and afraid at the same time.

    Hard to say what this show wants to be, but maybe that was the goal. It has the legs of Adventure Time, the torso of a Disney Movie and a faint smell of Legend of Korra.

    Spoiler:


    It's worth giving it a try, but I found it to be taxing at times. It's formulaic through and through, but trying to dance at several weddings at once is still difficult, and the transition from zany to tragic to serious and then back to zany (sometimes within a few minutes) is something that has to be... stomached.


    Definitely watchable with children, though!

    Started watching Centaurworld and . . . damn if I'm not enjoying the fucker. It's not a masterpiece, but it's nothing if not imaginative and intriguing. And thankfully doesn't stay in that cheery, cartoony place past the first episode, once they go down the rainbow road it's a lot more hero's journey and darker, but not too dark (in Centaurworld, anyway, human world is dystopian). The "herd" can get on your nerves at times, but other times you just love them (I'm particularly fond of Glendale). Plus, it's a musical, and I LOVE musicals. I'm 4 episodes in, and still going.

    So yeah, watch the first couple episodes, or at least until you get to the first shaman, and decide if you like it or not.

    SHow did a good job on selling me int he first three minutes on the horse and rider and their setup.

    But then it goes to actual centaurworld and I kind of hate everything and just want to get back to the other place.

    So I guess I'm empathizing with the horse.

    I would say to watch through the second episode minimum - that episode establishes that Centaurworld can also be serious, and have stakes (I'm talking about the Taurnado, which was...intense at least to me).
    Third episode is a bit of a dip, emphasizing the goofyness, but then it picks up again.

    Having watched the whole thing, its a bit like Adventure Time meets Over the Garden Wall, with the core of Crazy Ex Girlfriend- every episode dabbles with at least a few different genres of music, with a general Musical Backbone. Some members of The Herd can be annoying sometimes, especially Durpleton (but never Zulius), but they can also be absolutely hilarious (even Durpleton) and I ended up caring about them. The worldbuilding can be a bit wobbly
    Spoiler:
    considering whats trapped in the rift, the shamans seem really careless about giving up their keys
    and the tone can osciallate wildly, but I just loved the flavor of the thing. A lot of the songs are really friggin good, theres some absolutely killer comedy (Wammawinks relationship to Merpeople slayed me) and the animation is absolutely top notch.

    Spoiler:
    Though One thing I wasn't keen on was leaving Horse with her new design - I understand the thematic nature of it, but the original design was a stronger contrast to the rest of Centaurworld, and made her more distinct as a more hardened warrior. The new design...not so much

    If that's your feeling you'll probably like episode 4 and the Tree Shamans.

    Starting to really love Sony productions.

    Netflix just realeased Vivo, a musical with songs written by and starring Lin Manuel Miranda playing a kinkajou from Cuba who finds himself in various adventures in Florida.

    One of the writers is Peter Barsocchini, known for his writing for High School Musical films.
    Also, it was directed by Kirk DeMicco, writer and director of the Croods.

    Trailer gives a early story plot away, so Id recommend not watching it if you can. Though I guess thats what drives the story so

    I another cool thing about the film is that it has brief moments where the movie plays with animation styles like 2D and slightly different 3D models that differ from the Pixar model it uses normally for the movie.

    Got through the rest of Centaurworld.

    Well, I guess they have me for season 2.

    The bad comedy for 5 year olds did nothing for me, but its not for me. The character stuff when they wanted to do it was decent. The end of the season felt very like the end of Adventure time's bgger arcs, particularly the Lich King stuff.

    A name I kept seeing pop up in the end credits was Meghan McCarthy, who was one of the executive producers and story editors on MLP FIM from season 2 onward.

    The fart and butt jokes didn't do much for me either.

    But then again, I've seen so many cartoons that will settle for a fart and JUST a fart. Having Durpleton see his farts as an allegory for his disapproving dad and wishing thoose crowd-clearers of his could be more supportive and encouraging is... unique. I'm always willing to give points for something unique, no matter how stupid it is.

    Well, I didn't expect that revealed was going to happened today on the new episode of Miraculous.

    Spoiler:
    Man, I feel so bad for Luka now, that he now knows Marinette and Adrien are Ladybug and Cat Noir. It's going to make the next several episodes interesting.

    An interesting look at Ralph Bakshi's career, with a particular emphasis on his incomplete version of LotR.

    So, Toy Galaxy did this video the other day, about the Prince Valiant cartoon.



    And that got me REAL interested.

    Hidden:
    Now, I knew OF Prince Valiant, as it ran in the Sunday newspaper comics all my life. It was that boring all words story I never read as a child, and as teen I was aware that it was an ongoing story and there was no real jumping in point. So I mostly ignored it as that old comic thats been running for 60 years. (Somewhere along the way learning that the creator did the work their entire life and it was one long ongoing tale. Super impressive.)

    But, I never paid it attention. I was vaugely, vaugely aware that there was a cartoon in the 90's. But it was on the Family Channel, so I wrote it off as likely religious or preachy moralizing and never ever watched it. (Or any of the Defenders of the Earth stuff.)

    But after that video I tracked it down and watched the first episode. And then another. And now 10 of the 65 and I plan to do the rest.

    Set in the time of King Arthur.

    The animation is pretty solid for the early 90s, great backgrounds, all star cast (from the early 90's) actual ongoing story, love triangles, death!, (And characters allowed to SAY "death" and "die" and "Kill"!) and it's not just a toy commercial! They in fact didn't make ANY toys for the show. (For the franchise yes, not the show specifically.)

    Its nothing thats going to blow you away in this day and age, and you can see some of the spots where the family channel clearly had a say, like "no blood" (even though there were definitely dead folks) and no magic or dragons! but...This allowed the writers to get more creative, not less. Like Merlin is an alchemist, and the dragons are canons. Neat! If I ever do a King Arthur story I'm certainly borrowing that.

    I'm too old now and its too dated for me to be wowed by it, but If I'd caught this back in 91 I think I'd be a big fan. It certainly feels like certainly feels like it deserves the curiosity watch way more than say, Skeleton Warriors, or Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors, or Bravestarr, or King Arthur and the Knights of Justice did. (ALl shows I remembered that I rewatched at some point for nostalgia mostly.)

    91 means it would have been pre X-Men, Reboot, Beast Wars, Mighty Max, Exo-Squad and Conan, (The good shows with continuity squad) around the same time as the mid run Disney Afternoon stuff.

    I'm trying to imagine the alternate timeline where young me gave this thing on the Family Channel a chance and became obsessed with it and hunted down the many (many) comics. If I'd gone through a Prince Valiant phase instead of a Conan one.

    So I dunno, maybe this one is an open secret that everyone knows about, but maybe its a lost gem that basically everyone has overlooked for years. I never hear it talked about.

    I've never got around to watching the show but have quite a few of the books; being able to read a bunch of them in a row without week-long gaps and at original size makes for a much better experience.

    If nothing else, you can see why it had such a massive impact on comics as a medium.

    Plus you get to see things like

    the Prince Valiant page Etrigan was based on.
    Complicating things since 2009.

    I knew. I KNEW that Ubiq would be the one to have something to add.

    But I am in very short order interested in looking deeper. Its neat.
