Thor Through the Decades, Animated

Tell It Animated is back with Thor! And again, the video has come out a month after the movie it should have been synergizing with. Oh well. It’s still another fun video because this dude does good work.

Another fun video and all our Mondays are better because of it. Though I think he forgot Thor’s appearance in Adventures in Babysitting. That’s a pretty big sin. But he does a perfectly fine job with all the other MCU Thor appearances. So a good time has been had by all!

And, as always, in the off chance the creator sees this, do Robin next!

As Expected, There’s Going to Be More Rick and Morty

We all love Rick and Morty. It’s a great show, and still funny after all these years. And what more is there to say? Rick and Morty is an institution at this point, and it’s just delightful that we’ll be getting more episodes soon!

I mean, it all looks great. I’ve no doubt that the creative team are going to knock another season out of the park. And we can all watch that happen with our eyeballs.

Wow, I am just not finding much to say about the existence of another season of Rick and Morty. I’m gonna watch, and I’m gonna love every episode. Let’s just leave it at that.

Rick and Morty returns on Sept. 4, just in time for my birthday. I’m not 40 yet.

Danny DeVito and Aubrey Plaza are Making a Cartoon!

I am a fan of random adult cartoons that show up on streaming services and various channels. I’ve watched Inside Job, Chicago Party Aunt, Solar Opposites; and now I have Little Demon to look forward to from Danny DeVito and Aubrey Plaza!

Looks both tame and interesting. So it’ll fit right in among those other shows I mentioned, and probably a dozen others that I’ve since forgotten I watched. But FX usually makes good stuff. And if Danny DeVito wants to make an entire cartoon show just to get his daughter a starring role in something, I’m all for it! The man can do no wrong.

Little Demon arrives on FXX and Hulu on Aug. 25. So I have a month to forget it even exists.

Star Trek: Lower Decks is Coming Back!

I am a huge fan of Star Trek: Lower Decks. I’ve never been a big Trekkie. It just wasn’t my thing growing up. But I’ve watched a lot of modern Trek stuff and Lower Decks is my favorite. It’s a brilliant show with great characters, a great sense of humor and a real love of all things Trek. It’s great for me because I can enjoy the jokes on the show and then look them up online to get the deeper meaning.

I can’t wait for season 3. The first two seasons were friggin’ perfect, and more of this show is going to be a real treat. I want a ton of seasons! I want a full, class Star Trek show length amount! Six seasons and a movie! And we also learned at Comic-Con that Lower Decks is going to crossover with Strange New Worlds. I haven’t watched that yet but am considering it. And, for some reason, they won’t have the voice actors play the characters in live action, even though they look perfect for the live action roles. Weird choice.

But whatever, I’ll take weird choices. Star Trek: Lower Decks arrives on Paramount+ on Aug. 25! Just gotta wait another month!

Groot Is Adorable As Ever in I Am Groot Cartoons

Groot is awesome. We can all agree on that. Well he’s going to star in his own series of animated shorts this fall, called I Am Groot. We’re known about the show for a while, and no we’ve got the first trailer, courtesy of San Diego Comic Con.

And I think it looks great. I’m no elitist. I will gladly accept any and all content Marvel wishes to give me. It doesn’t take a lot to make me happy when it comes to this stuff. And this looks adorable and fun. My life can support watching a couple of neat little cartoon shorts about Groot. Bring them on!

Five original shorts are going to start up on Disney+ on Aug. 10.
