Cartoon News - Jan 8, 2012

It's been a long time since I've posted anything on Cartoon and Horror - especially cartoon and horror news. Luckily, I've made a bit of time in my schedule to start updating again. Since I've missed out on a TON of new cartoon and horror releases, I've decided to split up the news. I'll begin with the cartoons as there are so many DVDs that have recently been released or are coming out soon that are must-buys.

NOW AVAILABLE

Conan: The Adventurer - Season 2, Part 1

Captain Power - The Complete Series
I got this for Christmas and it is by far one of the best gifts I got this year. It's amazing how adult the story-lines are whiling still retaining some fun elements for kids. I highly recommend anyone pick this up just for the 90 minute documentary. I know this isn't technically an animated series, however, it does have a lot of cg animation. 

Skeleton Warriors - The Complete Series
This show was also created by Gary Goddard (Captain Power, MOTU The Movie) and I highly recommend this DVD set. It comes with commentary tracks, picture galleries, a 45-minute documentary.

Silverhawks - Voume 2 (completes the series) - Warner Archive  MOD
Warner finally released the second volume of Silverhawks. Now fans can finally have every episode on DVD. Too bad this volume didn't get the same love the first volume got. 

Dragon's Lair - The Complete Series - Warner Archive MOD

Jonny Quest vs. The Cyber-Insects - Telefilm - Warner Archive MOD

Thundercats (2011)

COMING SOON!

Archie's Weird Mysteries
This just barely classifies as a 90s cartoon series as it was broadcast from 1999-2000.

Bobby's World - Season 1 (Date: TBD) - Amazon MOD

Thursday Cartoon Intro - THE REAL GHOSTBUSTERS


Produced by Columbia Pictures Television and DiC Entertainment, The Real Ghostbusters was based on the live-action Bill Murray/Ivan Reitman movie. They had to attach "The Real" to the title due to a legal dispute with Filmation and their Ghost Busters series. The Real Ghostbusters ran from 1986 to 1991 and 147 episodes were produced. Not bad for a cartoon.  In addition to this series, it also spawned two other series' - Slimer! And the Real Ghostbusters (1988) and Extreme Ghostbusters (1997). Fortunately, TimeLife recently released the entire series on DVD in an amazing collectible box set. The set includes every episode of The Real Ghostbusters as well as the 13 episodes of Slimer. Extreme Ghostbusters has yet to see the light of day on DVD. Although, I don't think too many people are dying for it.
