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.

An Even Better Look at Hit-Monkey

The Hit-Monkey cartoon is still coming out on Hulu in less than a month, and we have kindly been gifted yet another trailer. It reveals a lot more than that first teaser trailer, so that’s cool. I still think this cartoon looks weird as heck, but a lot of good people spent a lot of good time working on it. So you best believe I’m gonna watch!

This looks so weird and so neat. Did Hit-Monkey have a ghost partner in the comics? Or did the cartoon makers realize they needed somebody to actually talk instead of a purely silent protagonist the whole time? Do you think Hit-Monkey will talk in this cartoon? Maybe just between him and the ghost?

We’re all gonna find out on Nov. 17 when Hit-Monkey comes to Hulu!

They Went and Made That Hit-Monkey Cartoon

This is a complete surprise. Marvel went and actually made that Hit-Monkey cartoon. Insanity. Remember a couple of years ago, when Marvel and Hulu announced a series of wacky cartoons? Like Howard the Duck and a team-up between Dazzler and Tigra? Only for Marvel Studios to eventually step in and declare most of those projects dead?

Welp, looks like the Hit-Monkey cartoon just kept churning away under the surface, ready to pounce when we least suspected.

It looks…OK. I’m pretty sure I saw Fat Cobra and Lady Bullseye in that trailer, so neat! But otherwise the whole thing feels kind of off. I’m going to watch Hit-Monkey, no doubt. It’s just weird.

Granted, I absolutely loved the M.O.D.O.K. cartoon that came from the same batch of ideas. So maybe I’ll love Hit-Monkey! But jeez…does anybody even remember Hit-Monkey? Wasn’t he some kind of weird Deadpool spin-off idea that went nowhere? But hey, he’s got a cartoon show before Deadpool gets a cartoon show! So he must be doing something right.

Hit-Monkey comes to Hulu on Nov. 17.

Y: The Last Man Might Actually Be Real!

Y: The Last Man is one of the greatest comic book stories of all time. It’s a rich, detailed and evocative story about…all sorts of stuff. Look, I’m no good at themes and subtext. It’s a great story and a great comic. I still remember checking out the first tpb because of good word of mouth and then immediately going out and buying the next several.

And we finally have a real, honest-to-god trailer for the upcoming TV show!

Looks pretty cool!

The most shocking thing about this trailer is that it actually exists at all. A Y: The Last Man TV show has been in the works for years at this point. I think Shia LaBeouf was attached to star at one point. It’s one of those shows/movies/adaptations that just never came to be.

But now it’s on its way and will arrive on our screens on on FX and Hulu on Sept. 13! How exciting!

6 Thoughts on the First Season of M.O.D.O.K.

As has been the case for some time now, we are living in a golden age of superhero entertainment. So much so that geeky fans like me can pick and choose which superhero stuff they watch and still enjoy a lot of it. And so much so that there now exists an animated cartoon comedy about M.O.D.O.K. This show exists. It’s real. And I watched it all in a weekend and loved it!

TV Rating: 9/10 – Great.

Announced only two years ago as part of some insane lineup of Marvel cartoons, M.O.D.O.K. is the only one that made it to air. No one will ever known exactly what the Tigra/Dazzler show was going to be like, but we can now safely say that M.O.D.O.K. is awesome! Driven by the wit and voice talents of comedian Patton Oswalt, M.O.D.O.K. is a darn fun show and can easily hold its giant head high in today’s wild TV landscape. This is a quality show.

Join me after the jump for my review and thoughts on the M.O.D.O.K. TV show, now available for streaming on Hulu. Expect FULL SPOILERS for the show. And feel free to share your own thoughts in the comments.
