536. Dynomutt, the Dog Wonder and Blue Falcon

Blue Falcon was a request from my friend Jason Young. I finished the drawing and then knew that I couldn’t leave it alone. I needed to add B.F’s best friend, Dynomutt, the Dog Wonder! I used to watch and love this cartoon as a kid (oh, USA Cartoon Express, I miss you most of all).

Sorry. I had more, but then got incredibly sad about the lack of Saturday morning cartoons and the sorry state of modern cartoons.

Anyway.

Last night, my lady person, one of her friends and I watched a terribly dull turd of a movie called Crucible of Horror – a title made of only lies. It’s also known as “The Corpse” and “The Velvet House” – also lies. Upon further research, it’s a very loose remake of a film called “Les Diaboliques”, further remade as “Diabolique” in the 90s starring Sharon Stone. When I worked at the movie theater, I remember enjoying saying the word “Diabolique” quite a bit, and of course listening to all the people who bought tickets for it butcher it.

That’s a lie.

No one ever bought tickets for that movie.

I digress.

Basically, Alfred Pennyworth from the Tim Burton Batman movies is a creepy, abusive, and molesty dad. His wife and daughter then plot to murder him. The murder never actually happens. The movie ends with no explanation. Ta-da! Apparently, to up the creep-factor, Alfred’s on-screen son and daughter were played by his actual son and daughter-in-law. So there. If you find it on Netflix, destroy your Netflix device so you never accidentally watch it.

    “Sorry. I had more, but then got incredibly sad about the lack of Saturday morning cartoons and the sorry state of modern cartoons”

    While I will lament the lose of Saturday Morning Cartoons (and Weekday Morning Syndicated cartoons), they were understandably made redundant by the dedicated cartoon networks of WB, Disney, and Nickelodeon.

    I however can’t agree about cartoons today being in a ‘sorry state’. A) There have always been terrible cartoons, and B) The good cartoons are REALLY GOOD right now, both artistically and in sophisticated writing.

    I just got done marathoning Avatar The Airbender, and was already a huge fan of The Legend of Korra. That shit be TIGHT. (and I have it on go authority the new CGI TMNT series is really good too) And stuff like Adventure Time and Regular Show is just as zany and wacky as Dexter’s Lad or Ren & Stimpy were back in the day.

    Right now Quality seems to surpass quantity, where in the past it was the other way around. I’m not sure that’s a bad thing.

    The only down side to things, is that it seems that seasons are a lot shorter these days, and shows only run a couple of years before being cancelled and replaced due to cost/ratings reasons. Like what happened to Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and Young Justice.
