Got Disney+ recently, and although mostly for their big exclusive live action series like the Mandalorian & WandaVision, am quite interested in checking out some of the classic cartoon shorts featuring Mickey & the gang.

Back when I was a kid it seemed like the classic Looney Tunes shorts were pretty readily available as they were shown all the time in hour long blocks on Cartoon Network, and it always confused me why Disney Channel didn't do the same for the classic Disney shorts, so it's a pretty exciting opportunity to have them on Disney+.

Unfortunately they don't seem to have Mickey's House of Mouse for some reason (unless I didn't look hard enough), which is a bit of a bummer as I loved watching that on Saturday mornings as a kid.

Switch - Blade Strangers
PS4 - Kingdom Hearts III, Tetris Effect (VR)

I finished Infinity Train: Book 4 (HBO Max), sad that the series has been canceled. Also binged thru Boss Baby: Back in Business Season 4 (Netflix) and I also started watching Bluey: Season 1 (Disney+).

Planning to finish Kid Cosmic: Season 1 (Netflix) next and resume watching Solar Opposites: Season 2 (Hulu) and Close Enough: Season 1 (HBO Max), I was enjoying both series.

@nomither6 Man, that’s a throwback and a half. 00s cartoons were definitely the best. I love how you mention Fairly Odd Parents but only before they ruined it with that stupid baby 😂

Decent retrospective look at Batman Beyond. The show passed me by originally, if it was ever on a steaming service I sub to I would definitely give it a watch.

I have watched that series so many times, as a kid and later as an adult too. I can totally see how it passed people by back in the day; especially when superheroes were less big of a deal. It was like watching a very 90s comic book in motion.

@JohnnyShoulder I think I've said this a few times over the past year, but that show's Blu-Ray boxset is still sitting sealed on my shelf, and I need to get around to it.

I'm certainly guilty of skipping it as a kid, because I looked at it and thought, "That's not Batman."

@RogerRoger I've had it my Amazon wishlist since Dec 2019. I think I'm more likely to get the Animated Series, as that was something I watched when I was younger.

@RogerRoger Bruce Timm’s also doing a new Batman show! Don’t really know how we’ll get it over here since it’s an HBO Max thing but it’s definitely cool that they’re doing another one.

@nessisonett Most likely on NOW TV, which sucks balls.

@JohnnyShoulder I’ve managed to avoid NOW TV. By all accounts it’s rubbish. I guess we’ll just need to hope someone picks it up.

@nessisonett I think they have lost some content since Disney+ launched the Star channel, but all the HBO stuff they already had is most likely tied down in long standing contracts. Some HBO shows like Pennyworth and Doom Patrol you can get on Starzplay, which is a paid extra channel through Amazon Prime, so it may go on there.

@JohnnyShoulder Oh, I'd absolutely recommend you start with The Animated Series, yeah. After seeing bits and pieces here and there, I got the Blu-Rays when they were released a couple years back, and binge-watched the whole thing. Some superb, superior Batman, right there.

@nessisonett Yeah, NowTV can suck it. There'll always be hope for some form of physical media somewhere down the line, I suppose (which reminds me, I need to grab Zack Snyder's Justice League at some point) although an alarming number of made-for-streaming shows never materialise, or at least show no sign of doing so in a timely manner. Fingers crossed, eh?

Batman: The Animated Series is the best superhero TV show ever made. Hit the right balance of serious drama and comic book camp, IMO, which is right where Batman should be: somewhere in the middle between Adam West and The Dark Knight Returns. Hamill's Joker is legendary at this point, and pretty much the canon depiction of the character for a lot of fans.

I really liked Nolan's interpretation of that universe, but that always felt like its own thing to me.

@Ralizah It's rather the other way around. Adam West is really it's own thing. The dark and broody Batman is the common one.

Ralizah

@Kidfried There was a long period in Batman's comic book history where that wasn't the case. Although it's definitely unique in its own ways.

Anyway, it's not so much the "broodiness" as it is the way characters were interpreted. The Nolanverse doesn't feel like the comics, or the animated movies, or anything else Batman related.

This song works on so many levels for this trailer.
Can't blame them for giving that iconic roll to Mark Hamill, it clearly fits.

Edit: Turns out this is more of a sequel than a reboot.

"The war for Eternia culminates in Masters of the Universe: Revelation, an innovative and action-packed animated series that picks up where the iconic characters left off decades ago. After a cataclysmic battle between He-Man and Skeletor, Eternia is fractured and the Guardians of Grayskull are scattered. And after decades of secrets tore them apart, it's up to Teela to reunite the broken band of heroes, and solve the mystery of the missing Sword of Power in a race against time to restore Eternia and prevent the end of the universe."

@LieutenantFatman That's an awesome trailer. I've just texted it to my brother, who's a big fan; am sure he'll go nuts for it. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!

No problem matey, apparently it's the same team that put together Castlevania which was incredible, so we're definitely in for a treat. Just uh, don't read the comments.
