In this issue I look through the fantastic mini-series from DC Comics, Giant Killer. A top notch comic from the brilliant artist/writer Dan Brereton. – and- I play with my very small collection of ThunderCats action figures from the 80s.
This is a video that I wish I would have done earlier. Ever since I made and posted this video I have been finding dozens of other great examples of Christmas scenes and themes in films that are not Christmas movies.
This is only a small list of some great movies that haven’t been deemed Christmas films BUT have a healthy dose of the holiday within its story and/or setting. Enjoy!!
I don’t have a lot of Christmas themed toys or items to share but I thought it would be neat to look at some Christmas gifts my grandfather received when he was a small child, books. These books were all published over a hundred years ago and it blows my mind that I can touch, read, and even smell something this old and special. To balance out the episode I also grab a Fist Full of Joes
I hope you enjoy!
Well it’s that time of year again. Lights are twinkling, there’s music in the air, and i remember some of the times Santa ripped me off. These are some of the toys I remember asking Santa for when i was a kid and for one reason or another they never made it under the tree.
This is a return of sorts as I use to write about all the toys I wanted as a kid but never got. Most of those stories revolved around my parents dropping the ball but this time it falls squarely on the shoulders of the holly jolly con artist, Santa Claus.
As always this is meant to be fun and just a good way to remember some great toys from our childhood. Enjoy!
In this issue of IT CAME FROM… MY SIDE OF THE LAUNDRY ROOM I play with some of my G1 Transformers toys from when I was a kid -and- I give a quick review of the arena stunt show, Marvel Universe Live.
Before they were the powerhouse that they are today, Marvel was a struggling company that was trying to find some way to stay afloat. Marvel took a lot of chances trying to find a way to become finally successful again. One of those chances was to buy an animation production company and start producing animation of their own.
That was the start of Marvel Productions, a great animation company that ran from 1981 to 1993. Under the Marvel Productions banner a lot of great cartoons were created based on some of the 80s biggest icons.
Here is a quick history of the cartoons they made through out the 80s. Maybe one day I’ll discuss the ups and downs of Marvel and what led them to be bought by Disney, but this episode is all about the cartoons we grew up with. I hope you enjoy!
