DC fans are expecting some big things from both TV and movies at Comic-Con 2016, and seeing as The Killing Joke might be a little too dark, young animation fans have something to look forward to as well. See DC’s best and brightest with a first official trailer for Cartoon Network’s Justice League Action, along with new cast announcements!
This week we're taking a look at Star Wars: The Clone Wars, the Cartoon Network series that follows the adventures of the Jedi as they battled against the Separatists' droid army in the years between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. In this episode, you can learn about the history of the show from its development to its predecessors to what happened to the planned stories that never aired.
Among the many TV revivals already in progress, few have excited fans the way Adult Swim promises to resurrect Cartoon Network’s Samurai Jack in the coming months. We’ve seen a few teases, but go behind the scenes with creator Genndy Tartakovsky, voice Phil LaMarr and more with a fresh look at the 2016 revival!
Here at ComicsAlliance we're big fans of Teen Titans Go, the sitcom that asks, "What do the premier group of teenage superheroes do when not saving the world?" And answers that question with, "Almost marry a pot of chili, team up with alternate versions of themselves, and eat so much that their stomachs overtake their minds." The point is, it's a pretty great show.
If you've been watching Cartoon Network at all during the last month, you're probably aware that the channel recently rebooted Craig McCracken's legendary The Powerpuff Girls. Like TTG , the new Powerpuff doubles down on the wackiness of its predecessor to pretty fun results. Now fans of both shows will get the crossover of their dreams with "TTG v. PPG." Check out a first look clip, above!
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 new video series. You think you know cartoons? Well, here’s a few things you might not know!
In this inaugural episode, we'll be taking a look at one of the most beloved series on TV right now: Steven Universe, the continuing series created by Rebecca Sugar and airing on Cartoon Network. This video covers the history of Steven Universe, from its inspiration and creation, to the various styles of music, dance, and personality associated with each of the main Gems, to the various non-cartoon merchandise available for fans who can't get enough of Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl and Steven.
Last year's Peanuts Movie did the near-impossible and pulled off a successful translation of Charles M. Schulz's iconic style and characters from their native 2-D to CGI. That technical breakthrough was the film's real marquee attraction; the story was just a greatest hits. Structured over an entire year, you got the Red Baron, the Little Red-Haired Girl, the whole deal. Despite the deep melancholy and ennui at the strip's heart, Peanuts is a comic ultimately built on comfort and refuge.
Knowing that, it's easy to see why the new Boomerang/Cartoon Network series, Peanuts, went the route it did. Rather than attempt to modernize or emulate newer shows like Steven Universe or Adventure Time, Peanuts opts for a familiarity that perfectly evokes the feel of the comic strip.
Funko's domination of all things collectible has seen it expand beyond the ubiquitous Funko Pop vinyls into keychains, plush dolls and even subscription services. One of the most delightful lines that Funko produces are the Mystery Minis, blind box collectible featuring characters from the likes of The Walking Dead, Zootopia and The Avengers.
Joining the ranks of the Mystery Minis is Cartoon Network's ever popular Steven Universe and its roster of characters. The line is due out in July and features not only the main characters from the cartoons, but fan-favorites such as Greg Universe, Lapus Lazuli and Steven's pet lion, Lion.
With a brand-new Powerpuff Girls series headed to Cartoon Network this spring, this seems like the perfect time to gather some Powerpuff fan art for your enjoyment. Ever since Professor Utonium accidently created them in his lab in 1998, the Powerpuff Girls have been the heroes of Townsville and some of the most influential superheroes to originate on television rather than comics.
The girls comprise a perfectly balanced team despite the small number (and small stature). Buttercup is the violent tomboy, Bubbles is the sunny girly-girl, and Blossom, as the leader, falls between those extremes. Add the Professor as an Alfred figure and the Mayor of Townsville as their Commissioner Gordon, and you have a perfect little superhero premise.
While we still don't know exactly when Cartoon Network's upcoming relaunch of Powerpuff Girls is going to premiere on television, it's definitely coming soon, and we know that because the promotion for the series is in full swing. It was just last week that the network unveiled a clip from the first episode, and now, we've got a look at the theme song.
Specifically, an extended version of the show's opening sequence, with a brand new theme song, "Who's Got The Power?" by Seattle's Tacocat, just in case you wanted a reason to get pumped up for the return of what might actually be the single best superhero team of the '90s. Give it a watch!
We've been hearing for a while about an all-new Powerpuff Girls series coming to Cartoon Network, and today they've released the very first clip from the show, which you can watch right here.
