A Journey Through The Best of #CageFest

On my Twitter Account I run what is called “#CageFest.” I do the fabled Twitter tradition of Follow Fridays with Nicolas Cage face morphs of characters, people, etc, morphed. I run several of these a week. There’s been some good ones over the past couple of years, and I felt it was time to share some of them that were my personal favorites. Alvin from the Chipmunks This one was just pure luck. It is a face morphing software, and it somehow detected a face on Alvin the Chipmunk. This is one of my all time favorites. Cats The Musical The Movie Cats the Musical was released in December 2019, and quite frankly, the world turned to shit afterwards. Around the… Continue reading A Journey Through The Best of #CageFest

DuckTales Episode 1 – That Theme Song, Though

This is Right in the Childhood, a column where I review cartoons from the 70s, 80s, and 90s (sometimes 2000s). I have either haven’t watched them in a long time or have never watched them in the first place. In other words, they are basically fresh to me. I am not going to lie, my personal favorite recap so far has been He-Man. However, this time, I ran a poll on Twitter and the winner was the 1980s classic, DuckTales! 80s Cartoons Had the Best Theme Songs One thing I frequently note in my reviews of these cartoons is that the 80s probably had some of the best theme songs of all. Just listen to this and take a trip… Continue reading DuckTales Episode 1 – That Theme Song, Though

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, Episode 1 – Right in the Childhood

I have reviewed a few classic cartoons on Geek With That such as Thundercats. Today I am taking on the classic, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, which is truly an all-time classic cartoon. I mean I start He-Man and the Masters of the Universe and right off the bat, we get a monologue of the backstory of He-Man and some awesome 80s background music… Here is the monologue: “I am Adam, Prince of Eternia, Defender of the Secrets of Castle Greyskull. This is Kringer, my fearless friend. Fabulous, secret powers were revealed to me the day I held aloft my magic sword and said: “By the Power of Greyskull! I have the power!” Kringer became the mighty BattleCat and I… Continue reading He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, Episode 1 – Right in the Childhood

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1987 Animated Series Episode 1

There is no denying the cultural impact of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise over the last 30 or so years. What with comic books, cartoons, movies, video games, and every product you can slap a turtle with a mask on, it exists. Heck, you can even play them as DLC in the new Injustice 2 game out for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Today, I will be doing my Right in the Childhood column review style like I have done for Thundarr the Barbarian, Thundercats, X-Men 1990s Animated Series, and even My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. That TMNT Theme Song First of all, right out of the gate, let us talk about that bad ass theme song. Teenage… Continue reading Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1987 Animated Series Episode 1

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

Over here, I have done a few editions of Right in the Childhood. There has been coverage of some great 80s classics like Thundercats and Thundarr the Barbarian. I even dipped into the 90s with a little X-Men. But now I have to cover something that has been, well, lets say transcendent in popularity for many decades. My Little Pony. This one was requested by my wife.   DUN DUN DUN! “Oh Richie is going to rip on the bronies!” Heck no, I do not spit all over all what brings other’s joy. Instead, I am going to give my honest assessment of the show with a little hammy humor thrown in just like all the previous Right in the… Continue reading My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

X-Men: The Animated Series: Night of the Sentinels Part 1

Welcome to another edition of Right in the Childhood. So far I have done Thundarr the Barbarian and Thundercats, both of which I had never watched before. This time, I’m reaching into my personal favorite childhood cartoons and doing X-Men: The Animated Series from the early to mid 1990s. But as usual, I promise this to be fair but fun. The Most Epic Cartoon Introduction Ever? First of all, we have to cover this freaking awesome theme music and intro. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7IzSGvXc_PM I mean, this is the pinnacle of TV intros. I’m sorry, they just don’t do this anymore. They literally have the X-Men and the Brotherhood charging at each other on the end. I got seriously hyped when that happened.… Continue reading X-Men: The Animated Series: Night of the Sentinels Part 1

Thundercats Episode 1 – “Exodus” (Right in the Childhood)

My first RITC blog covering episode 1 of Thundarr the Barbarian was well received. Thank you. So, I used the Facebook page to get suggestions for reader’s suggestions for old favorites to be covered in my Right in the Childhood column. Then I took those suggestions and ran a poll on Twitter. The winner was Thundercats! A lot of old cartoons passed me by when I was growing up so I am seeing this for the first time. I try to view these for what they are, good old fun. Yes, it might be a tad silly and I will get silly with it, but I promise not to be unfair. Warning, this is basically nothing but spoilers. I encourage you… Continue reading Thundercats Episode 1 – “Exodus” (Right in the Childhood)

Thundarr the Barbarian Episode 1: Curse of the Black Pearl (Right in the Childhood)

Welcome to “Right in the Childhood.” A new column reviewing all things retro. The first subject is the 1980s cartoon series Thundarr the Barbarian. It was suggested to me and I was skeptical on whether I would like it or not, at first. I will warn you this is FULL of spoilers if that sort of thing matters to you. If you don’t want to be spoiled, stop right now and order the DVD set on Amazon like I did. According to the intro… The year 1994, from out of space comes a run-away planet, hurtling between the earth and moon! This causes destruction to Earth and the climate.  Somehow, this also splits the moon in half. Now, I’m not… Continue reading Thundarr the Barbarian Episode 1: Curse of the Black Pearl (Right in the Childhood)
