Yes folks, that beloved early '90s favorite, Taz-Mania, is back! Coming May 14th, "Taz-Mania: Taz on the Loose" will be available to own on DVD from Warner Home Video! I was excited to get this one in my inbox. It came on right around the same time as Tiny Toons, Animaniacs, and Tom and Jerry Kids (and it has a lot of the same voice actors!).

Click over to About.com and see more about the DVD, and buy it on May 14th!

The Pokémon Formula

If you've read this blog for a while, or if you know me in person and have talked to me for any length of time, you know that I find it fascinating that there is a whole genre dedicated to magical animals being thrown at each other for the amusement/protection/honor of their handlers. I have officially dubbed this The Pokémon Formula. For me, I find it hard to believe there is such a thing, but I am thoroughly interested in the phenomenon none the less. Click over to the Kids Cartoons page to see what I have to say about it, and come back and discuss in the comments section here!

Cartoon Character Apps!

Do you ever wish you could just bring your kids' favorite cartoon characters to life to entertain them whilst you accomplish some necessary task (like driving, or making dinner, or taking a shower)? Well, thanks to wonderful technology like smartphones and tablet computers, now you can! Check out what I think are some of the best apps out there for Android and iOS devices that feature some of your kids favorite cartoon characters from television shows.

Meet my Ponyville in the Gameloft app!
And yes, that's indeed a screenshot of the My Little Pony game by Gameloft. On my Samsung Galaxy SIII. That I am competing against my husband to have the best Ponyville. We're geeks, what can I say?

Tom and Jerry Kids Show has returned!

Did you grow up watching cartoons on Saturday mornings, laying on the carpet in front of your television with your bowl full of brightly colored marshmallow sugar cereal? Well then you probably remember Tom and Jerry Kids Show. Tom and Jerry (the famous--or infamous?--cartoon cat and mouse duo) are re-imagined as stubby little kids, and they have adventures all over time and space. Time to reignite that nostalgia and pick up a copy of Tom and Jerry Kids Season 1 on DVD next Tuesday!

New MLP: FiM DVD arrives April 30 - Princess Twilight Sparkle

That's right Bronies, a new My Little Pony DVD is hitting the streets at the end of the month. It's the first to include the Twilight Sparkle Alicorn episode as well. It features five episodes of the show as well as a cute little sing-a-long bonus feature (although, if you're anything like me, you've seen "Magical Mystery Cure" at least a dozen times by now and you already know all the songs by heart. Ahem.)

Check out my full review of the DVD over at the Kids' Cartoons page on About.com. And no, I don't have control over the fact that Princess Luna is absent from the DVD cover, haha! Be sure to pick up your copy of the DVD on April 30, 2013!

Remember when "googling" as a verb sounded dirty?

Yes, I was bored so I "googled" myself (and yes, Google, I really used YOUR search engine, so I'm using the verbiage properly!). I can assure you, most of the images that come up under my name are NOT me (although it seems to index my YouTube and Twitter accounts pretty well). Interestingly, I found a couple other sites had picked up my interview with Daniel Ingram and were giving me some free press... so I thought I'd be nice and return the favor!

Me with Daniel Ingram at the MLP Coronation Concert in Feb.
Yes, this guy is seriously that photogenic in real life.
