Jab’s Reviews: TMNT (The Archie-Exclusive Characters… yes including Cudley the Cowlick)

https://photos.smugmug.com/TMNT/i-XBQn7Pr/0/d339be1f/Th/Jagwar-Th.jpg JAGWAR: -Jagwar is the de facto leader of the Mighty Mutanimals, a spin-off attempt from the TMNT Adventures Archie Comics series. Like I said earlier, they were short-lived (a three-issue mini-series followed by an ongoing that was cancelled after only 9 issues), and were killed after a six-part back-up storyline in the main "TMNT" book- a SHOCKING move...

Jab’s Reviews: TMNT (Splinter & April O’Neil)

SPLINTER:-Splinter is naturally in every Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles continuity. He is their teacher and adoptive father, and continues to act as a wise old mentor figure throughout. His personality is usually calm, serene and considerate, making him almost as uniform in personality as the four Turtles. In nearly every continuity, Hamato Yoshi was in a relationship...

Jab’s Reviews: TMNT (Groundchuck, Dirtbag, Scale Tail & Tattoo)

Time for more TMNT characters! This time, I grab a quartet of villains from assorted times in the show's history! https://photos.smugmug.com/TMNT/i-5kmt92B/0/43a3d75e/L/Groundchuck2-L.jpg https://photos.smugmug.com/TMNT/i-TDDLBbh/0/77c4c5ae/M/Groundchuck-M.png Always dead-on target, Groundchuck aims to please Shredder. This mutated weapons expert is the Foot Clan’s hooved hoodlum of choice. Chunky and beefy, Groundchuck is Grade A when it comes to grinding up... Continue Reading →

Jab’s Disney Reviews: Treasure Planet

TREASURE PLANET (2002):Written by: Ron Clements, John Musker, Rob Edwards, Ted Elliot & Terry Rossio The backstory to the making of this movie is more interesting to me than the actual film itself, which is totally forgettable. Clements & Musker, two A-level directors responsible for The Little Mermaid, basically begged the studio for 12 years to make... Continue Reading →

Sailor Moon SuperS (Final Summation)

SAILOR MOON SUPERS:-… sigh… well, HERE GOES… Out of all the seasons of Sailor Moon, the fourth seasons, Sailor Moon SuperS (said like "Supers", but with a big "S", because reasons), is almost universally the most disliked by the show's adult fanbase. Even back in the 1990s, in the early days of the widespread online... Continue Reading →

Jab’s Reviews: TMNT (The VEHICLES!)

Next up, I take a look at all the iconic gear used by the Turtles over the years- the cheapest toys you could buy kids and still count as vehicles (the Cheapskates) to the mighty Technodrome itself. THE TECHNODROME: Probably the most iconic Villain Base in TV history (even over SNAKE MOUNTAIN from He-Man!), The Technodrome... Continue Reading →

Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon S – The Movie

Luna's human form. SAILOR MOON S- THE MOVIE:-So they released another one-hour feature after the end of Sailor Moon Super, and again, it's out of continuity. Unusually, however, it's based off of a manga story- a side-story Naoko Takeuchi did on larger paper in a "tankobon" (like a trade paperback for us). This movie's ALSO about... Continue Reading →

Jab Looks At: Dino Riders!

When I was a young Jab, there was only ONE cartoon and toyline that I could have called my favourite, and that one is Dino-Riders. Dino-Riders is another Merch-Based 1980s cartoon, this one from TYCO Toys. What sets it apart from the pack is that if features ALIENS FIGHTING IN LASER WARS WHILE RIDING GIANT ARMOURED DINOSAURS....

Jab’s Game Reviews: World Heroes

WORLD HEROES: World Heroes is pretty much the bastards child of SNK's fighting game series. There are worse one-shots and little-known side games (Aggressors of Dark Kombat, for example), but the four games comprising the World Heroes Universe stand out as being beneath SNK's notice for the most part. The first game came out in 1992,... Continue Reading →

Jab’s Reviews: TMNT (Scumbug, Antrax & Wyrm)

https://photos.smugmug.com/TMNT/i-cJCZCxp/0/23375c4b/S/Scumbug-S.jpg Sent to eliminate the bug problem in the Technodrome, a mild-mannered exterminator got accidentally oozed and mutated into the scampering, sickening Scumbug. Unable to face other customers, Scumbag saddled up with Shredder as his ace assassin. Armed with his poisonous pinchers and a tank full of Anti-Turtle Spray, this rude roach chews his way...
