The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack (hearts)

   Have you heard of this show? The animation reminds me of Ren & Stimpy, but totally different. Always, with tons of laughter and wonderment.
   Created by cartoonist, Thurop Van-Orman.. It's a story of Flapjack, who is raised by a talking whale named Bubbie. Add in the offbeat Captain K'nuckles, and they're off on fun adventures on the sea and off. There's silly Peppermint Larry and Candy Wife, and "The Most Beautiful Man in the World" catchphrase (teehee), and really CLOSEUP closeups. The water is drawn really cool, and I really dig the the claymation scenes... Oh, and Flapjack and K'Nuckles LOVE candy!

check out Cartoon Network's site, for more info and showtimes. here's a  clip of the theme song.

Hope you have some fun adventures, soon!? Big or small, they're always a treat.

   From the very beginning of Spike Jonze` Where the Wild Things Are, I was drawn in. Right at that moment, I was Max. As Max runs away from his life, and away from the tribulations that come with it, you're brought to a strange and magical ( yet, very familiar) place. The perfect adaptation of Maurice Sendaks' Where the Wild Things Are.
   When I was a kid, I was always a little scared of the monsters in the book. And you kinda get scared of the "monsters" in the film, too. Mr. Jonze and Dave Eggers were able to capture all the different emotions a young kid is going through in a very beautiful and very real way. The blue-ray is out March 2nd, and I can't wait to add it to the collection.

I wonder what the best age would be, for my "future kid" to watch it? :)

P.S. The movies soundtrack is dope.
