Which ruins a gag at the end of the second film with ignorance to the original series. only saw the second, so I'm not sure if they reference the old show in any way in that one. But that's adaption displacement for you. Turtles and Smurfs will always be cartoons only, the land of Oz is only in Dorothy's head, and Superman always was able to fly and changed in phone booths. Yep... that last one... he was displaced by a parody.The other day at a Meetup group, I heard two people talking about the latest 21 Jump Street flick. They were quick surprised when I informed them there used to be a TV show, and starring Johnny Depp! I showed them a picture and they said, "Wow, he looks so normal." Lol
Considering it was the film that resurrected his career after multiple bad choices he made, I'm not surprised.Plus, I'm constantly running into people online who seem to think Robert Downey Jr.'s first film was Iron Man.
- I remember when qubo used to air VeggieTales along with many other kids who grew up in the 2000's, but only ONE person in this world knows about Kewlopolis.
Johnny Depp was in it, and they made a little reference to how he used to be in the program back in the 80s.Which ruins a gag at the end of the second film with ignorance to the original series. only saw the second, so I'm not sure if they reference the old show in any way in that one.
At least those girly cartoons were something that kids might want to watch, unlike the lipservice crap on now.Yeah, that CBS/DIC thing that only aired girl's cartoons that weren't that good? I can beat you there. I remember when CBS had good programming selections on Saturday Mornings. Back before that crappy TV/EI FCC requirement killed the line up.
Oh, sure... those shows were better. But virtually anything is, and saying those shows were better is like saying it's better to get hit in the stomach with a baseball than to get hit in the face with a bowling ball. I mean, Horseland? It's like if My Little Pony (any version, actually) had a botched lobotomy. Such a far cry from Garfield and Friends and Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures.At least those girly cartoons were something that kids might want to watch, unlike the lipservice crap on now.
