made for tv
You might recall my mention of Cartoon Network's first live-action made-for-TV movie, Re-Animated. Well, the movie will be mostly live-action, save for the cartoon characters that only the main character can see. Our hero, Jimmy Roberts, has his brain replaced with that of famed cartoonist Milt Appleday after an accident at the Gollyworld theme park and begins to see the cartoon characters Appleday used to see. At the time I wrote the post, it was uncertain when the movie would air, but now we know it's set for December 8 at 8:00 pm.
You can watch the trailer here, and I have to say, it actually looks pretty funny. It's obviously made for young kids, but even I found myself laughing a couple times at the trailer. I'd be surprised if this didn't wind up on DVD eventually. If it does, just don't confuse it with the horror film Re-Animator if you buy it for your kids. That might be a tad traumatic for them, unless they're like I was as a kid, then they'll probably think it's really cool.
