And make sure you remember their corporate owners.
Along with their upcoming movies, radio stars and theme-park attractions.

(Sadly, unlike Charlie Brown, Garfield has no studio corporate owner to promote his franchise label... :( )

Re: Great Pumpkin and Micheal Jackson Halloween Returns to TV

Are these the only halloween specials on the networks? I miss garfield airing on tv! Sorry, "Specials" don't fit in anymore with our new modern idea of binge-watching-- They came from an old-fashioned era, when everyone in the country would sit down and watch TV on the same night, but now...

Re: X-Men Movies Thread

Fox doesn’t need superhero franchises anymore Eric. It just got bought by Disney. Hence a PG-13 Deadpool. (That no one is going to go and see against the new Spidey.) This is Fox--It AIN'T OVER for them until Disney makes their own "Fantastic Four: Homecoming". (And even then, it wasn't o...

Re: How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

I'm pretty sure that Eric knows why the crows aren't in the new Dumbo, and that it had nothing to do with Burton... Eva Green being cast as a "villainous trapeze artist" in league with mean circus owner Danny DeVito, OTOH, had EVERY danged thing to do with Burton. :? But they did at least...

Re: X-Men Movies Thread

And Fox has moved the date again. This time to June. Doing so just days after launching the trailer. This does not bode well for the film. They needed a place to put Alita, after they moved Alita's under-the-radar Christmas Dump to Superhero February-- Since rumors suspect Fox needed the 21st/Chris...

Re: X-Men Movies Thread

The trailer ain't bad, but it's still not the REAL Dark Phoenix story. Still, doesn't mean the movie can't be good. Looks like they went in saying "We're going to do the SPACE story this time!" to please the fans, figured out why that wouldn't work, and then compromised with "Okay, w...

Re: New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie

Ah, those heady days of 1990. Yeah totally. 1990 basically still existed in the 80s (I guess kinda like 1960 was still pretty much the 50s.). It was more or less the crux of every weird pop culture phenomenon from that decade. The 90's didn't start until the Clinton Administration in '92, just like...

Seems to be a foreign CGI series, not the H-B version.

Which...ALSO explains a lot. Why it's on streaming, for one.

However, just thought I should comment on the fact that he only describes its financial performance and mentions nothing on its storyline/creative qualities, other than to say that it got: “rave reviews.” It's Forbes, so I don't think he noticed anything else, and he's a mainstream grownup fan, so ...
