Everyone loves trivia about their favorite animated features and series, but with over 100 years of animation history behind us right now, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn. That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite names in cartoons in this continuing video series. You think you know cartoons? Well, here’s a few things you might not know!

2017 marks the 25th anniversary of Image Comics, so this week we're taking a look at the history of cartoons based on comics from America's largest independent comics publisher! Following the meteoric rise of Image in the early '90s, there were several adaptations of some of the earliest books from the publisher. This video takes a look at these various adaptations, including WildCATs, Savage Dragon, Spawn, The Maxx, and even more.
