Lately, I’ve become enamored with cultural experiences associated with Summer—namely, the spookiness of ghost stories and myths, where wild imaginations help whittle away the hot days. Re-watching Gravity Falls fuels my interest, and its “Summerween” episode is a perfect nightmare—with a twist.
Even if you’ve been obsessed with playing Pokémon Go the past few weeks, you probably have no idea who Jason Paige is. But if you grew up watching the animated series, you definitely know his voice. He sang the epic theme song for the US version of the Pokémon cartoon. Think the resurgence in popularity is doing Paige…
Just because it has the word “party” in front of it doesn’t make what the Weird Al Yankovic-voiced Cheese Sandwich is riding on any less of a tank.
Nothing is known about the return of Samurai Jack. All fans have to go on is a six second trailer and a brief announcement that the show will be premiering on Adult Swim’s Toonami block sometime this year.
Well, this exists.
More than 30 animators brought in their unique styles for the Reanimation Project’s attempt to remake the beloved intro of Super Smash Bros. Melee.

Homer... has... changed. As if the original opening credits of The Simpsons weren’t full of small gags, French artist Yoann Hervo redrew the whole thing in a really trippy, nightmarish way.
I could watch an entire show in this style—it’s so good!
Artist Andrew Tarusov redrew cartoon characters, mostly classic ones created back in the early 1900s, and imagined them as old as they should be in 2015.
The worlds of gaming and animation have been living in harmony for over 30 years. There have been plenty of shows based on gaming’s greatest icons and plenty of games based on classic cartoon characters. Sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn’t.
With various mature-themed series and the growing number of over-their-heads kids shows, it has never been a better time to be an adult fan of animation. Steven Universe is one of the best shows currently airing, but you might not know that at first glance. S0, let’s talk about this wonderful gem of a show.
I know change in general can be immediately off-putting just by virtue of it being a change, but, Adventure Time as a 3D animation is... D:
