TV Squad Ten: Cartoon women who should have Playboy centerfolds

by Danny Gallagher, posted Nov 10th 2009 11:05AM
Marge Simpson in PlayboyMarge Simpson's spread in Playboy was a groundbreaking moment for cartoon women everywhere. Her sensual skin pics paved new ground for the "feminine-animated."

She told the world that the women of animation aren't just vehicles for humor or straight characters to set up punchlines for the males on the paper. She helped us realize they have thoughts, feelings, emotions and yes, even urges that make them unique, infinitely interesting and utterly fascinating. They are, as Dr. Frasier Crane so eloquently put it, "like a fine wine: always intoxicated, ever surprising and only getting better with age."

And so, for the cause of gender equality and female empowerment, here are the ten cartoon chicks who should pose naked because it would be righteously awesome.

Here's your chance to learn about Maurice LaMarche

by Adam Finley, posted Aug 17th 2006 3:03PM

maurice lamarcheMaurice LaMarche is a voice actor who has done more cartoons than you can shake a stick at. Just to reference a few, he played Dizzy Devil on Tiny Toons, The Brain on Animaniacs and Pinky and the Brain, and most recently did the voice of Kif and Calculon (among others) on Futurama. The Canadian-born LaMarche started out doing stand-up comedy and eventually moved to voice acting. Quick Stop Entertainment has a really long interview with the man, so if you're into voice acting, and every single thing Maurice has ever done in his life, you should check it out. Also, if you want to read about someone from Canada bashing the country he came from, it's good for that as well.

Animaniacs coming to DVD

by Adam Finley, posted Apr 3rd 2006 1:00PM

animaniacsApparently, I need to pay closer attention. I've been wondering if Animaniacs would ever come out on DVD, but apparently TV Shows on DVD have been all over the story for awhile now. Well, now it's official, and Animaniacs Volume One will be released on DVD on July 25. The set will include a hefty dose of 25 episodes featuring the Warners, weird dog-like creatures who were too insane for even Warner Bros. animation standards and were locked away in the studio's water tower. The show, I think, was even more of an homage to the classic Looney Tunes than its predecessor, Tiny Toons. It satirized celebrities and packed episodes with pop cultural references, just as Looney Tunes did back in the day, and with the exact same kind of aloof detachment.

Do any of you Animaniacs maniacs have some favorite moments from the show? I'm quite fond of the Imagination Song from an episode featuring a parody of purple dinosaur Barney called "Baloney." It went like this:

I is for "Imagine"

M is for "Me"

A is for the letter "A"

G is for "G"

I is for, um, "Imagine"

N is for "Nice"

E is for "Egad! I said 'Imagine' twice."

That still cracks me the heck up.

Thanks to Sean for the tip!

UPDATE: I missed that Pinky and the Brain is also coming out at the same time. Thanks, elf.

Giving props to Paul Dini

by Adam Finley, posted Feb 22nd 2006 4:06PM
paul diniPaul Dini is best known for writing for such animated series as Tiny Toon Adventures, Animaniacs, Batman: the Animated Series, Krypto the Superdog, He-Man, and many, many others. George Lucas also selected him to pen episodes for his Star Wars cartoons Ewoks and Droids. There's a lot of us who grew up with Dini's work but know very little about him. Since he's one of those "behind the scenes" types you don't hear a lot about him, but the man has quite a hefty and impressive resume. He also has his own Live Journal that is quite entertaining. I especially enjoyed his attempt at trying to get into Mensa. Referring to the corpulent proctor as "Sans-A-Belt" was pure genius.
