Wander Over Yonder blog: The Bounty

So yeah, I'm going to start up a routine blog, where I post my thoughts on the latest episode of Wander Over Yonder.  Who knows, maybe enough people will see this and get into the show.  I think I'll do the same with Adventure Time and Steven Universe, once I catch up with those shows, and I'm also doing the same for My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.  Same goes for Gravity Falls, once it comes back.  It's funny, this is starting to turn into an animation blog, even though I didn't exactly want it to be like that, but hey, as long as I'm using this blog for something!

So yeah, Wander Over Yonder.  I made a post about this show a while back, explaining my hopes and expectations for the series, and so far, the series might have exceeded my expectations.  It definitely has a lot more going for it then on the surface, and I really hope more people get into it, because it truly is a funny and entertaining show!

I believe the first season is almost halfway over, which is a shame, I probably should have started doing this from the beginning.  But like I said with Friendship is Magic, better late then never, so instead, I'm starting with The Bounty, the latest episode of the show.  It's a really good episode, check after the break to see why!

My Thoughts on The Powerpuff Girls 20th Anniversary: Dance Pantsed

20 years ago, a cartoon show known as The Powerpuff Girls premiered on Cartoon Network, and it soon became one of the network's most popular shows, even to this day.  It was about a trio of kindergarten superheroines, Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup, using their super powers to save the city of Townsville "before bedtime".  The show was known for it's clever sense of humor, as well as it's surprising amount of violence (which, in a sense, is also part of the joke).  In celebration for their 20th anniversary, Cartoon Network produced a half-hour special:

As you can see, it has a new art-style, and is also the first time the series had zero input from the show's creator, Craig McCracken, who is too busy working on another original show of his for the Disney Channel, Wander Over Yonder, which I've mentioned in previous posts on this blog.

I recorded this and saw it when I saw the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic episode, Three's a Crowd, this last Saturday, and as such, I probably don't have the best memory of what I watched as opposed to if I wrote about it then.  While I watched it, I tried to keep in mind the tone of the original show more then anything, but also tried to maintain an open mind about it...  Honestly?  I kind of liked it.  Find out what I mean after the break.

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Season 4 Blog: Three's a Crowd

I've been meaning to do this for some time.  See, I like My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, and I typically watch new episodes and post my thoughts on the forums I go to.  I figured my thoughts are so long and extensive, I should actually post them on my blog!  I probably SHOULD have started doing this as soon as season 4 started, instead of near the middle of season 4, but whatever, at least I'm actually doing it.  Plus I'll likely do the same thing for other TV shows I'm watching, like Wander Over Yonder and anything else I feel I'd like to comment on.

ANYWAY, the first episode of this particular series: Three's a Crowd.

Yeah, I liked it alright, I guess...  I'm still a little confused and/or conflicted about some things in the episode, which I MIGHT get to them as I come to them, but then again, I'm the kind of guy who tends to forget things I wanted to comment on...  Oh well, here it goes.  See my incredibly extensive thoughts on this episode after the break!
