Cowabunga Corner #103: 4Kids TMNT Season 1

Hey everyone,

Thank You!

When I started Cowabunga Corner in 2010, I thought it was going to be just a few videos shot to share some of my stories.  Though with a lot of good feedback of people excited about the new blog, it kept going.  And some things started to change.  Originally just a show of me talking at a camera has now become a show with event footage and interviews.  Sharing stories of other fans and guests.  Cowabunga Corner expanded from what I thought it was going to be, and grew before my eyes.  Costing more than I could've pictured.  Though after discussing things with crew members, viewers and some of our guests we decided to start this kickstarter project.  Which was a great success thanks to ou

Movie Review: Ted

Over the years cartoons got known to be something for children or family entertainment.  Though some shows have rocked that boat to remind people that animation is for people of all ages including adults.  Shows like “The Simpsons”, “Family Guy” and “South Park” have got people a bit more wary of thinking that every cartoon is for kids.  Though when you see a soft fluffy teddy bear being animated on the big screen, it’s hard to think it’s not for children.  Which leads us to a new movie coming to theaters this week, “Ted”.

Movie Review: Brave

Families are very important, though sometimes traditions can drive a family apart.  A lot of different movies have shown this, people pushing traditions on kids and instead of grasping onto this family lifestyle the kids see something else that they want in life.  Friction happens between family members and we get different types of movies where one family member is trying to get someone else in their family to see things their way.  Sometimes this lesson is learned by putting family members into each other shoes, though other movies take a totally different step.  The movie Brave by Disney and Pixar is one of those movies with a “Brother Bear” type twist.

Movie Review: Rango

A pet lizard lost on a road trip finds himself on an adventure that makes him the star of his own story. Though as this lizard does not truly know who he is himself, he goes with the flow till he’s shown just how much he’s lied to those who trusted him.  Can this lizard pull himself together and save the town of Dirt?
