Littlest Pet Shop is taking the girl-toon world by storm, and Shout! Factory has released a "sweets and treats" themed DVD this month. Check out my full review at! Also, my friends at Shout! have shared with me some fun clips and a slide show for you readers! Enjoy! (My favorite is the Star Trek scene... go figure, that's what the GEEK likes.)

Regular Show... Yeh-yah!

Regular Show is one of my favorite Cartoon Network shows at the moment. The humor is similar to Adventure Time, but not nearly as weird. In fact, the characters Mordecai and Rigby remind me of guys I went to school with over the years, and some of the stupid stuff they'd do in the name of fun. (Those of you who know me from that era, you get to guess to which of you I'm referring... muah-ha-ha-ha!)

So, you all know how much I LOVE my job, right? Because I really do. I get to do reviews of awesome stuff... like Regular Show: The Complete First and Second Seasons on Blu-ray. That's right, my friends at Cartoon Network hooked me UP. And I tell you what... this one got a full five stars from me. Why, you ask? Well, the discs included just about everything I could want in a Blu-ray release: Animatics? Check. Commentary? Check. Behind the Scenes stuff? Interviews with people who work on the show? Checkedy-check check. I am a happy cartoon geek with this one! I can't wait until it "hits the street" in a couple of weeks so fans everywhere can snap this baby up.

In short, I highly recommend picking this one up when it releases on July 16th. You will NOT be disappointed if you're a fan.  And if you know me "in the real world", maybe if you're nice I'll lend you my copy. Maybe.

DVD Review: Slugterra - Slugs Unleashed

Another one of those "kids throwing magical animals at each other" shows, Slugterra is among the cuter of the lot. It plays weekends on DisneyXD channel, but you can also own them on DVD. I had the opportunity to review Volume 2 in the DVD collection, "Slugs Unleashed". Check it out over at the Kids' Cartoons page!

Adventure Time Seasons 1 and 2 on Blu-ray

"Come along with me..." Adventure Time! I know I have a LOT of readers who are fans of this show. I, personally, think it is beyond weird, but I see the appeal. It's different than other shows (and boy is that an understatement!), it's amusing, and the music is actually pretty rad. Plus, I tend to love anything voiceover actor John DiMaggio touches.... (by the way, if Mr. DiMaggio's people end up finding this post somehow, he is on my list of legendary voiceover actors to interview! Call me! Pretty please?)

Things are finally dying down here in the TVhousehold (boy, I need to think of a better term for that... I don't live in TVLand, and I might get sued if I use that one... hm. I'll sleep on it I guess.) after two birthday parties, two separate cakes-with-fondant-that-I've-never-used-before, a birthday trip to the zoo, family, TV Dad's and my seventh wedding anniversary and subsequent Columbus-area food tour (did you see all my tasty treats on my TVMom Instagram account?)... I was finally able to give these discs the attention they deserved!

So, here it is, my discussion on the Adventure Time seasons 1 and 2 Blu-rays! Check it out and be sure to pick up your copies, in stores now!

Audio Interview: The AquaBats! SuperShow!

I did it! I have officially created, edited, and posted my first "podcast"-ish audio interview with Jason DeVilliers and Ricky Fallomir from The AquaBats! SuperShow! Check out the video (there is only an image as the background, the real meat is the audio) and let me know if you like this better than reading a boring old article-style interview.

In all honesty, it took me probably the same amount of time to edit the audio together, record an intro, make an image for the background, and pop all that into iMovie, export it, and upload it to Youtube as it would have to just write it all out... but hey! It's fun, right?

Enjoy! And be sure to check out The AquaBats! SuperShow! on The Hub, Saturdays at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific!

P.S. I only had one entrant on my Monsuno Giveaway, so CONGRATULATIONS goes out to Ronald Oliver! I will be emailing you shortly to get your mailing information. Thanks for reading and sharing! YOU ROCK! Hope your granddaughter loves it!
