Someday I'm going to make a cartoon about a funny fat man who always flashes back to random stuff he did.
Up here in space
I'm looking down on you
My laser's trace
Everything you do
You think you've private lives
Think nothing of the kind
There is no true escape
I'm watching all the time
I'm made of metal
My circuits gleam
I am perpetual
I keep the country clean
I'm electric, electric spy
I'm protective electric eye
is anyone reading this? I saw a commercial while watching some Looney Tunes for it and I had to pick it up!
Is Disney going to finally die already? It's been 15 years since Walt died, and yet they still haven't made a single decent animated movie. Fox and the Hound was shit. And it'll probably be years before we get the next movie from them.
Seriously, what have they done in the last few years that's worth anything?
Oh yeah, why don't you tell me about that Superhero deconstruction thing you're working on, Alan? Like that's ever going to happen, DC aren't even giving you and Dave the Charlton rights.
hey guys, I'm hearing rumors about DC scrapping 40+ years of continuity in favor of a streamlined version of the fucking Silver Age. FFS Earth 2's going to be an abandoned shithole once that happens.
Pfft, they wouldn't have the balls to do that. Next thing you'll tell me is that there'll be a run on an obscure character and/or a group of obscure characters by some... I don't know... Glaswegian guy or something.
I hear that a new star wars movie is coming out. This fucking franchise is such a sellout. It's getting casualzied. What else can they possibly do? They blew up the death star the empire lost.
when i see this thread i realize the real modern pop culture begins in the middle or the late 80s, because we are very limited in 1982, this is pretty much a Y and a late X generation thing.
Star Wars was really the beginning of pop culture movies, before Star Wars the movies have more theatrical and dramatic stuff. ( and the youth-oriented movies are weird cheesy scifi or shitty horror b-movies )
Glad to see the new administration is getting our military back into shape. We're doing mandatory drug tests, getting modernized equips, and they finally canned that senile fucker Hyman Rickover from the Navy. The Russians ain't gonna mess with us now.
Just get a job on wall street dude. We are making money like crazy. I just bought a second Ferrari and I've only been working for a month. New age of prosperity is right around the corner. Man greed IS good.
Sheeit.. i'm playing on an Apple ][+ with a 110/300 baud suction cup accoustic modem looking for box filez while listening to MJ's "Thriller" on tape cassette, pissed off that Belushi died and SNL may never be the same. It gives me a head-ache... I think i'll take 2 of this new cyanide flavoured Tylenol and go watch some Danger Bay, BBC Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy, Simon & Simon, Magnum PI, and maybe some of that Raccoons cartoon. Gonna be a long year........
Hey guyz.. Blade Runner and Poltergeist is playing. Want me to swing by your place in my '71 Datsun 240Z after 8 tonight and pick you up so we can take in a flick? I wanna show off my new car phone I just installed. It's totally radical. But hey man, it costs $0.95/min so don't fuck around with it eh.
Guys, is this *the* shit, or what?! Does it get any better than Jack fuckin' Kirby working on Saturday morning cartoons?
This movie is awful. Superman kills Zod. Superman will never do something like that. George Reeves is my Superman. I hope Christopher lives a painful life for that horrible portrayal of Superman.
Friday the 13th Part III in 3D is the best movie I've ever seen! I hope more movies are in 3D! my only gripe is they put a dumb hockey mask on Jason, shit it looked dumb, I hope if they do another one he ditches it
Usnet I'm going to need you guys to stop posting such big emails
Though I am a foetus right now, even I know that defeatism is unAmerican and helping hand over the world to those filthy commies.
My dad works over in Japan at this card game and now computer company called Nintrendo. Or something. He said they are working on something crazy that is gonna put that shit to shame.
I'm telling ya, guys. All the best stuff is made in Japan.
This isn't 1955 anymore.
Hi, Usenet. My name is Dennis O'Neil and I wriite comic books for a living. Anyway, some suits from Hasbro are paying me to come up with a concept for a comic to promote a line of toys they licensed from Japan about cars and planes that turn into robots. I'm trying to come up with a name for this leader-of-the-good-guys that turns into a truck. Any ideas?
Alright, I can work with some of these. how about this guy? He's supposed to be the villain.
Guys how radical is this? Marvel's been making superhero shows in Japan for some years now and they might be shown here too. It would be great since Incredible Hulk is ending..
Well he's a gunman, so he'd probably want to be the best he can be, but ready to adjust to changes in conditions.
But if he's the villain, he'd want to one of a kind, or at least the best of his kind, to preserve his status.
How about Optimal Prime?
Iron Maiden? Shit, those limeys are getting fucking stale.
I need to send you some bootleg tapes of this band outta LA I've been shredding air guitar to
They call themselves Metallica.
>it's nine years later get over it
NO FUCK YOU I'M STILL MAD.
I'm going to go burn this piece of shit right now.
Hey, Denny. Your Iron Man is kinda neat. I'd like to see what you are up to this year. Can I take a stab in the dark at what out of sight Marvel character you are working on this year? Maybe it is the blind leading the blind here, but could you possibly be working on
Also I hear Charlton is in trouble. Do you think DC or Marvel might buy them? I'd love to see a new take on some of Steve Ditko's forgotten Charlton heroes. Maybe you could do something with them? Maybe Marvel could get one of their crazy Marvel UK authors to do something? I dunno. Some kinda new moderm 1980s twist on these characters that seem to be in limbo.
Naw. This generation is being raise to learn that everyone is a special snowflake. They will get awards for just being there on a teameven if they loose. They are gonna have so much self esteem the sky is the limit. We will probrably colonize Mars by the end of the millenium with how much confidence we are giving them.
Scott's finally got a new girlfriend, nice seeing that they'll keep Jean dead for good
Guys, I'm going to shit-post about my favorite new comic, Omaha the Cat Dancer!
Fucking hell henson like i need more nightmares in my life
Man when did they start letting meme characters have their own series. no way this will ever take off, fucking canadian manlets need to get out of my comics
>That fucking ending
My dick is so fucking hard right now you guys.
why is he so perfect bros? have you accepted henson as your god yet?
Kirby should've worked in animation way earlier. Mark Evanier's Kirby: King of Comics shed light that cartoon studios treated far better than DC and Marvel ever did. Especially health benefits.
obviously you dont get the complexity of Garfield. why dont you go read something more your level like "The Far side"
holy shit guys Disneyworld just opened up a new park its like a futuristic city. man im gonna beg my parents to go next summer, i bet it has really cool futuristic rides and stuff. Only Babys still go to the magic kingdom.
I won't reveal my name for legal reasons but I just saw something so amazing I had to share. I work in Hollywood and sometimes see test footage and concepts for ideas the studio is considering. They recently screened this test footage for this movie about cartoons, no big deal right? Yeah, I thought so too. The difference is that the toons and real life actors SHARE THE SCREEN. It looks like they're actually there together! The toon even bumped into real world objects and everything, it was amazing! Anyways, believe me or not but if this gets greenlight it'll change cinema forever.
is Pink Floyd /co/ related now?
I hope Boba Fett at least gets to be a secondary villain in the next one. That cartoon extra he was in was almost worth sitting through that lousy holiday special for,
especially after they brought him back in live action for that extended cameo in Empire.
>expecting anyone to believe they'd make a feature length film around that concept
/co/'s not THAT gullible, dude.
guess what i just got for Christmas suck it poor fags
I don't have time to load up my camera with a new roll of film and then pay to take it down to the photomat to get it developed just someone can have a fancy picture. Also I think I'm out of flash cubes.
>He hasn't seen pink Floyd's the wall yet
anon pls, implying such an important movie would be played merely on plebTV
This is going to sound fake as fuck but I swear it's true guys. My mom knows a guy, who knows a guy, who knows a guy who's working at Tonka right now. Apparently next year they're going to be putting out these awesome transforming robot toys and maybe even have a tie-in cartoon too.
What does /co/ think of a transforming robot cartoon?
You must be one broke-ass little faggot.
Well then, as Grandmaster Flash says:
Now your manhood is took and you're a "Maytag"
Spend the next two years as an undercover fag
Being used and abused, and served like hell
Till one day you was found hung dead in a cell
It was plain to see that your life was lost
You was cold and your body swung back and forth
But now your eyes sing the sad sad song
Of how you lived so fast and died so young
I like you anon, Firestar will surely be the female face of Marvel comics for atleast the next 15 years and never fade into obscurity.
That's nothing. My Dad works for this company called "Harmony Gold" and soon they’re going to start dubbing something called "Macross" about transforming robots.
Soon American animators are going to be out of business.
If the toys are anything like those Diaclone toys Takara makes, they're going to be awful, clunky garbage, and the cartoon will probably follow suit. I mean, look at this tripe. Nobody would be dumb enough to waste good money on clunky toys that you could poke your eyes out with, mark my words.
Hasbro's just as bad - they took the G.I. Joe toys, made 'em smaller, and threw in some garbage about terrorist groups and super science and all other sorts of nonsense. It's all too busy! Kids will never be able to follow all this sci-fi stuff.
Feh. That only plays one game unlike Atari. My parents got me a new Atari game based on my new favorite movie. I can't wait to plug it in and play the magic of the movie on my own tv.
Does he have a hot rehead for a wife? Uh.. anyway... Good luck, man. Just remember early to be and early to rise. Make sure you set your alarm clock every night. You wouldn't want to sleep in and miss an important flight or anything.
Guys did you hear? Thundarr might not get picked up for a third season!
Please tell me it's just a rumor!
Do you think this Frank Miller guy can save Daredevil?
So I hear they're working on an animated tv series based on this Hasbro toy line for girls that came out recently.
9 year old Seth, it's very, very important that you make a certain flight on September 11th, 2001. If you don't get on that flight, your dreams will never be realized.
Trust me, I'm from the future.
Thats it Comics are Dead! capeshit has finally jumped the shark
man just saw this movie called the The Secret of NIMH...and now why do i feel funny in my pants.
My uncle works for george lucas and guess what i just found out.
He dies in the end.also they say they are casting kids to play these creatures called Ewoks in the next movie so im going to audition to be one.
What? Daredevil's like a ninja now? That's some fucked up shit. Between this, the X-men and the New Teen Titans it's like everyone is a Teenage Mutant Ninja. Next thing you know they'll start turning into some kinda animal. Like a hamster or I don't know...a turtle?
Commie ass reagans going to try to ban assault weapons and will defund mental healthcare, cock sucker, we're fucked and you know it, that senile old coot will be the ruination of America, mark my fucking words.
>tfw this is fuckin true and the mental healthcare part is the reason we're so fucked with murder right now
Back in /2016/:
Reagan is legitimately the worst president we've ever had. He caused mlp and this rash of public violence, sowed the seeds for bin laden and his merry band, among many many other varyingly criminal and immoral things. Reagan is a disgrace to this nation.
>Jesus fuck, we can't all be rich! I spent all my money on this Commodore 64 I'm talking to you with
I thought they looked cool but the shit's only been out for a few months and there's no software for them. The guys at my local computer store said in about a year, it might be worth it.
>after years of diddling, Kiss finally gets back to rawk
>it's their best post-70s album
>nobody except Brazil and Japan care
Everyone's talking about the IBM PC now, saying that's going to be the go-to computer in a few years. I'd buy one but I don't want to take a second mortgage out on my house and the thing has only been out like nine months and barely has any software.
No, THIS is best show!
Thriller is the greatest album of all time.
This is still true.
They need to really pack it in. It's not the same anymore since Keith kicked it.
I dunno if you heard the new album. It's just meh. I mean, come on. No Keith Moon=no Who and no Joe Perry=no Aerosmith.
It's the eye of the tiger
It's the thrill of the fight
Risin' up to the challenge
Of our rival
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night
And he's watching us all with the
Eye of the tiger
Speaking of which, do you think that MJ is starting to get a little weird since he quit the Jackson 5? And didn't he used to be a darker complexion? You don't really see black people go through so many body changes because black don't crack.
Probably just health issues. If they get any worse though, he might get so pale he'll end up looking white. Changing skin color isn't worrisome as long as it's not life threatening though, and I doubt it'd actually affect his popularity. It's not like he's a kiddie diddler or anything
So I decided to watch some really old Disney films and... holy shit, Disney actually used to be great!
Why does our generation's Disney suck so hard? There's no fucking way their ever going to recover from this!
>Reagan is legitimately the worst president we've ever had. He caused mlp and this rash of public violence, sowed the seeds for bin laden and his merry band, among many many other varyingly criminal and immoral things. Reagan is a disgrace to this nation.
I think you meant to type "Obama" there.
anybody else miss best doctor? Peter Davison just aint doing it for me man. i think im going to stop watching.
>Too busy not existing as it is 2 years too early for me to have been born
Oops, author here, you are correct. I went to www.radioshackcatalogs.com/ to prove you wrong and see they didn't list 'em till 1986.
Ach! The Smurfs is sooo.. bad it killed its chance for a feature length movie. But I guess its not as rediculous as a bunch of pizza gobbling turtles who know martial arts. Noww THAT would be rediculous.
