Of course I realize that I can still watch them today but there was something cool about a time when cartoons first had their own cable networks. Disney especially put together a very cool package of new shows for their family channel. 'Lilo and Stitch', 'Filmore', and 'Recess' are all well written and animated shows. 'Filmore' in particular was a excellent twist on the police procedural, only set in a Jr high school.
'Kim Possible' is such a cool concept I am shocked that no one has made a live action 3D yet. It's got everything you need to start a billion dollar franchise. There is something here to appeal to everyone in the family - spy movie, teen comedy, martial arts film, mystery, and high physical comedy. It's even got a naked mole rat - Rufus - for those of you who are allergic to pet hair.
The creators of the 'Weekenders' love their characters so much and it shows. This is charming and sweet without being annoying which is a delicate line to balance. Real life tween problems and real life tween solutions. I love this concept of a group of friends trying to squeeze all the adventure and living they can out of two days a week. If I tell you that you are acting 'Tishy' you should know what I mean.
The world moves too slow for me. I know it spins at 1000 miles an hour but that still isn't fast enough. Zoomy zoom. The 'Powerpuff Girls' always seemed to be tuned to my higher brain frequency and actually relaxes me with it's frenetic pace. Excellent voice acting and slick animation gives 'Powerpuff Girls' a retro future look.
I know Orson Welles would smile that he is the inspiration for 'Brain', the smartest mouse on the Earth who would take over the world if not for his buddy 'Pinky' whose sweet hearted good nature is both an irritant and a comfort. I love the complexity of his schemes and how Brain always manages to compensate for his small size with some bizarre invention that he just pulls out of his butt.
