Katsuhiro Otomo, Frozen, Adventure Time, Futurama and Mickey Mouse Win Top Honors at 2013 Annie Awards

Untitled-2

The competition was brutal during last weekend's Annie Awards, the International Animated Film Society's celebration of an uncommonly strong year in animation for film, television, commercials and games. For example, it stung to see our beloved Teen Titans Go! lose the award for Best Animated TV/Broadcast Production For Children’s Audience, but that the winner was the similarly excellent Adventure Time made the pill easier to swallow. But easier still was the master Katsuhiro Otomo taking home the Winsor McCay Award for lifetime achievement in animation. That pill is good for health.

This Piece of ‘Futurama’ Fan Art Features (Almost) Every Character From The Series

Futurama cast

Like about 50,000 other people my age, I used to have that famous Simpsons poster with every character in one shot. The amazing thing about it was that it made you realize that the number of characters in the show's then 10 year history was ridiculous, and trying to name all of them was an addictive game everyone who came into my dorm room in college decided they needed to play.

And though it only had 7 seasons, Futurama boasts a similarly robust collection of characters, with some recurring and others only showing up briefly, but memorably, in one episode. Either way, if you're a big enough fan, they all matter to you, and now Australian artist Unrellius has produced a similarly amazing Futurama poster featuring damn near every character who appeared on the show.

The Official Santa Claus Action Figure Rankings (Revised And Updated 2013 Edition)

It's been over 1600 years since St. Nicholas of Myra first punched someone out for heresy right in front of the emperor, and in that time, he's mellowed out from a surprisingly violent theological hard-liner to the jolly old gift-giver that we know today as Santa Claus. He's beloved by children all over the world, owns a set of flying reindeer and has an origin story more complicated than most X-Men, but there's one area where Santa Claus is truly lacking: action figures.

Seriously, with the possible exception of Robin Hood, there has never been a character so beloved that is so dreadfully underrepresented in posable plastic. There are, however, a few options, so for those of you in dire need of something to fill that vacant spot in your miniature Christmas village, we're making like elves and doing our best to rank the 10 best Santa Claus action figures! Or at least, you know, the ten that actually exist.

Guillermo del Toro Creates ‘Treehouse Of Horror’ Couch Gag For ‘The Simpsons’ [Video]

The Simpsons' Treehouse of Horror Hellboy

In yet another moment clearly meant to remind you that you are no longer young, The Simpsons is about to air it's 24th "Treehouse of Horror" Halloween special. Any current or lapsed fan of the show is familiar with a few of the traditions that go into the annual episode, including the altered opening and horror-inspired Couch Gag. The theme continues this year, and this time the producers of the show brought on Guillermo del Toro to create the opening. Just under three minutes long, the animation features guest appearances by a few comic characters, as well as a nod to Futurama, and some inspiration from Mad magazine and former Hellboy artist and frequent del Toro collaborator Guy Davis.

This Model ‘Futurama’ Holophonor Will Make You Want To Switch Hands With The Devil [Video]

Holophonor lede

 

Since the folks who make Futurama often don't know if it's coming back for another season, sometimes it feels like the show has had half a dozen different series finales. That said, my favorite is still "The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings," which features Fry switching hands with the musically gifted Robot Devil so he can play the holophonor for Leela. It's a memorable episode, and has compelled one fan, Harrison Krix of Volpin Props, to make his own holophonor, and it's pretty impressive.
