Marc Morrell's insight:

A lot of great old cartoon opening videos on one page here, like Vytor, Thundarr, Go-Bots, and Transformers. So nostalgic to look back on these and try to remember where I was in life when I was watching that originally.

'The Lego Movie' Teaser Trailer: Batman and the Ninja Turtles Join Forces (Video)

'The Lego Movie' Teaser Trailer: Batman and the Ninja Turtles Join Forces (Video) | Cartoons for Kids | Scoop.it

"The first teaser trailer for The Lego Movie has just been released, and it's giving fans a first look at the vast assemblage of pop-culture references that will be featured in the upcoming comedy -- including Batman, Wonder Woman and Michelangelo (both the painter and the Ninja Turtle).  

 

Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the directing team behindCloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and 21 Jump Street, wrote and directed the pint-sized action adventure.

Marc Morrell's insight:

After seeing and loving LEGO Batman: DC Super Heroes Unite, and now seeing this, I think we are in for a slew of really good LEGO movies. And... nobody's complaining. Bring it on!

Sirenetta Leoni's curator insight, June 19, 2013 10:04 AM

The LEGO® Movie," trailer was released yesterday and features a truly stellar voice cast. We're not always fans of celebrity casting, especially when they cast "celebrities" who have no business doing voiceover nor the required imagination for it, but not this time....


When you have both Morgan Freeman AND Liam Neeson, as well as "Michelangelo" and "Michaelangelo" in the cast, along with Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, and Nick Offerman, how can you go wrong? Looks like a fun premise, with a very unique assemblage of superheroes, and isn't a "unique assemblage" just what you'd expect from LEGO?.


By the way, the highlight of the trailer is Will Arnett's homage to one of our favorite superhero portrayals ever. (Just watch the trailer.)

Marc Morrell's insight:

Glad to hear this one was renewed for a second season. It's the kind of show I can keep watching without getting tired of it, and the voice actors all do great work, since they all did it from the original Teen Titans series.

Marc Morrell's insight:

I watched this when I was a kid, and I remember it fondly. I wanted so much to be able to chew gum that would enable me to breathe underwater. And Ocean Patrol seemed like a cool job to have back then, when everything looked clean and clear.

It's sometimes easy to forget when you're watching an animated movie just how complex the underlying technology is.
Marc Morrell's insight:

I like it when they show behind the scenes videos about a movie before the movie is released to theaters, AND they get the actor who plays the main character to narrate it. I wish all movies would do this. I don't want to have to wait until it comes out on Blu-Ray to see these extras.

In a normal summer, having Despicable Me 2 and Monsters University would be more than enough animated fuzzy-wuzziness to satiate audiences.
Marc Morrell's insight:

It's really not a war. Kids can go see all these movies in one summer, and not have to choose one over the other. There's just not that many big animation movies being released this summer.

Here's the first smash-happy trailer for Hulk and the Agents of SMASH

Here's the first smash-happy trailer for Hulk and the Agents of SMASH | Cartoons for Kids | Scoop.it
Do you like smashing things? Do you like the word "smash" being repeated over and over? Well, then you have a fair to middling chance of enjoying Marvel's new Hulk and the Agents of SMASH cartoon.
Marc Morrell's insight:

There are more Hulks than you can shake a tempered fist at, which means lots of action and plenty of "one-liners". Hulks aren't known for their broad vocabulary. With Clancy Brown as the voice of Red Hulk and Eliza Dushku as Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk, it makes for an entertaining cartoon.

Earlier this year, Korra’s voice actress Janet Varney tweeted that Legend of Korra will be airing around “mid-April.” Fast forward to today and it’s obvious that she overestimated the time frame, but it’s only a slight delay and not an indication...
Marc Morrell's insight:

I hope this series continues to have good writing. The world can't wait for more episodes. Legend of Korra finished as the runner-up in ToonBarn's ToonOlympics last August.

Disney's new film is a 3D animated adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen.
