That compilation is basically my childhood in 30 minutes; only one of those cartoons is one that I didn't watch as a kid.

Of them, I'd say that Batman Beyond and Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century are the most obviously late-90s, and Samurai Pizza Cats is probably the least sensical. Even the name doesn't really make any sense.

I have to say, I much preferred the second incarnation of Sonic to the others. Particularly the whole thing with his uncle being trapped in a robot body.

If it had Knightmare, Aquila, Finders Keepers, Fun House etc on, then I'd agree with you.

Oh, I watched them as well, I just don't remember their titles sequences all that well. I used to love Aquila.

STOP THE PRESS!

What's this?! Is ReBoot coming back?!

Intro, for those of you who didn't watch this awesome 90's CGI cartoon.

I have every episode on my computer but haven't watched them yet. The first series seemed a lot more of a kids show than I remembered, I guess it only became more adult as the show progressed.

I remember only watching the 1st 2 or 3 episodes.... I think it was aimed at a younger audience.

I seem to remember it also being aimed at an older audience, with stuff going over the kiddies heads and references to things like Fargo, Evil Dead and The Prisoner.

Really?? Are we still talking about reboot?... I guess I missed out there then. I also didn't like it cos they had blue/green faces & I thought it looked like it was copying Ulysses 31.

Nostalgia really does act as a crapness filter sometimes doesn't it?






Yes, I know I'm as guilty as everyone else.

No, not really!

I used to watch Re-boot when I got home from work, but I missed the last few. It was a referencing version of Tron, for a new generation.

I'm sure I read something about this recently, possibly on the SFX web site, but I can't find the article now (I'll post a link if I do).

I watched Reboot and never got any clever references except to Tron, and Tron wasn't so much a reference as a template. I guess I was one of those kids whose head's it went over.

It was brilliant but Holden needs to lay off the botox.

We can't watch Rosellini's films in the UK. Shame cos I like the fact she is a bit mental. Hence she was great in 30 Rock.
