Magic School Bus to return

magicschoolbus

The classic educational TV show ‘The Magic School Bus’ will be returning, with a twist – the new show will be CGI instead of the traditional 2-D animation style. Honestly, I think it will be kind of strange but hey, who knows. It’s very likely that this will be yet another icon from childhood that will be bastardized by renewal. I’m trying to be positive here people!

What do you think? I know the news is a little dated, but we have ’til 2016 before we can really see the finished product and come to a developed opinion.

Futurama cancelled for second time

Logo_Futurama

It’s not necessarily ‘new’ news, but it is sad nonetheless. After being resurrected from the dead by Comedy Central in 2010, Futurama is once again headed to gray, static pastures. It will continue its last ordered season – the seventh – and then will cease to exist once more.

Futurama originally aired on Fox from 1999-2003, and then was revived through the awesomeness that is the Adult Swim programming block on Cartoon Network from 2004-2007. Does anyone else remember the Futurama episodes? I want to say that they appeared in the first hour timeslot on weekdays, where King of the Hill currently sits.

I am a HUGE fan of Futurama, and I like it considerably more than the 20+ year old behemoth that is The Simpsons (although I do like the show, I just don’t follow it). Maybe us fans can make enough noise to save it, or at least get another home for this truly transcendental animated series.

How do you feel about the loss of Futurama?
