My First Bad Review... and an interview update.

That's right, folks... my first BAD review of a show. I went into it with an open mind, I really did. I promise. I wanted to like this goofy new show on The Hub. I want to like everything I watch, really. But this time, I was so thoroughly disappointed, I couldn't hide my disdain in the "First Look".

The show I'm talking about is SheZow, which premieres this weekend on The Hub. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE The Hub. I love everything that The Hub stands for. But this time, they really missed the mark. See what I have to say about it here at the Kids' Cartoons page.

The good news is that The Hub has TONS of other awesome programming that I adore. Like The AquaBats! SuperShow! for instance. I did my interview today. Unfortunately, M.C. Bat Commander was out of town for the holiday, so instead I got a chance to chat with co-creator Jason Devilliers and "Ricky Fitness", Ricky Fallomir. They were both super cool dudes and we had a lot of fun chatting. I think, since it's a BLOG EXCLUSIVE!!! that I'm going to upload the audio (after some audio tweaking and trying to remember my radio producer days*, of course). So, be sure to stay tuned to the blog here at for that fun interview!

(*Yes, really. I was an assistant producer for a morning radio show right before I graduated from college. It was an incredible job that I loved enough to wake up at 4am for. I miss it... sometimes. Until I get to sleep in until 9am, that is.)

Sanjay and Craig, a first look!

Memorial Day weekend, Nick premiered their newest cartoon series, Sanjay and Craig. From the previews of it, I honestly thought there was no way I could like the show... until I heard the cast list. I'm a HUGE fan of Chris Hardwick (who voices Craig the snake), so there was hope.

 After the premiere, I have to say, I'm actually impressed. The show is funny and fresh. The animation reminds me of Bob's Burgers, but don't hold that against it. Check out more of my thoughts on the new series, Sanjay and Craig, at the Kids' Cartoons page on!

Interview Alert!

Big news, readers! I get to do an interview FOR MY BLOG for a change! I'm super excited about it. In fact, I'm SO excited, I'll give you a hint about the interviewee...

Hint number 1...

Sigh.... No, it's not DJ Lance Rock. Sorry. Although... if DJ Lance Rock's publicist is reading this.... get a hold of me! ;)

Still curious? Okay, I'll be nice. Here is hint number 2...

Image thanks to The Hub.
Okay, well, that's less of a hint and more of "hey, this is the guy!". That is Christian Jacobs, aka M.C. Bat Commander, and creator of The Aquabats! Super Show! He also is the creator of Yo Gabba Gabba and the voice of Plex the robot and Gooble. Needless to say, this guy oozes awesomeness. In fact, is your mind blown from his awesomeness yet?

So, stay tuned loyal readers! Big things goin' on over here at! Woohoo!

Have a question YOU would like to ask Mr. Jacobs? Leave it here in the comments!

Pound Puppies - Mission: Adoption on DVD

Another fantastic DVD from my friends over at Shout! Factory... Pound Puppies! I personally love this show. It's got a lot of familiar voices (Will from Will & Grace, Agent Self from Prison Break, and more!) and it's a really clever little show, good for kids of all ages!
