Goodbye To The Blog

Goodbye To The Blog

Goodbye To The Blog

During the Easter break, I had to think of a difficult decision that I knew I had to eventually make, I’ve decided to close the blog. Very recently, I’ve turned 30 years old and I no longer have the time to carry on with it, I feel that I’ve neglected more important things in life. For nearly five years, I’ve pretty much worked on the blog nearly every day, taking up hours of my time. I hope to continue on Twitter and hopefully YouTube, but I’ll be around less often. There has been a couple of times when I said I was going to end it, but didn’t carry it through.

With the blog, I’ve proud with what I’ve done, I’ve met people I’d never thought I would ever meet, those BAFTA screening events were really something. Cartoon Network’s press office, DHX Media, Corus Entertainment (CN Canada), Lego, BBC Press Office, Bardel Entertainment and many more all follow me on Twitter, my Twitter account is too precious now to get rid of. I’ve been a member of ToonZone* since September 2013, which is now a long time ago, next month it will be five years since running the Twitter account and will be five years since doing the blog. Things have changed, CN is a lot different now to when I started the blog, Adventure Time and Regular Show have ended, The Amazing World of Gumball has almost ended, the next generation of kids are a lot different to the time when I was growing up too, there’s even a difference between those in their early 20’s and those approaching their 30’s. I’m now in the top end of Adult Swim’s target demographic and miles past CN’s, if my 20’s went this quickly, I’ll be 50 before you know it. Five years is one sixth of my life so far.

To be honest, in recent months I’ve been watching less and less cartoons and felt slightly disconnected from what I was writing, I wanted to enjoy it but just don’t have the time to make the commitment anymore, I run the blog on top of a full-time job. The blog is costing me quite a bit money as it’s outgrown shared hosting, I always covered the costs, I haven’t set up a Patreon (to be honest, Cartoon Community news channels have Patreon accounts although they’re not the original news source, why should I pay someone to read the news for me, when I can read it directly from the source myself) or ads (although there was a brief AdWords experiment on the blog, although it wasn’t fruitful and the ads had no relevance to the content at all). I did not ask for a single penny from anyone to run the site. I plan to archive the site somewhere, hopefully somewhere cheaper as it will be used less often, I’ll just leave the site abandoned.

Cartoon Network’s old owners – Turner is dead, the old management has left what was known as Turner’s parent company – Time Warner (now WarnerMedia owned by AT&T), also CN is now part of Warner Bros. Warner Bros. will now not only include Cartoon Network, Boomerang, Adult Swim (with Toonami) and Adult Swim, but also Warner Bros. Animation, the anime streaming service – Crunchyroll, Rooster Teeth and VRV. I just don’t have the time to cover this amount of news, plus the monthly highlights as well as managing the YouTube channel which features the promos on the channel, which is something that CN/Turner/Warner Bros. etc. should really be doing themselves with a much bigger and better PR department. On-demand streaming is CN’s eventual end goal anyway and I predict linear television will be dead in the United States and most countries in Western Europe within the next 15 years, there will be no point in uploading promos, bumpers and continuities as there will no longer be any.

I plan to continue on Twitter and share news, this will be less time consuming for me and it’s something I usually do anyway. Due to drastic changes at Cartoon Network, Turner and WarnerMedia as a whole, I think this will be a good time to end the blog, tomorrow night, I plan to post a list of links where you can find info about the latest Cartoon Network/Warner Bros. Animation news. To be honest, it’s time for someone else to step up to the challenge and takeover what I was doing.

People or the “cartoon community” (The only community I belong to is where I live) prefer to hear what CN Confessions, CN Schedule Archive or The Rise of Fall of Nickelodeon (who also covers CN News) etc. has to say anyway, it’s sad that people want rumours, opinion, drama, criticism and controversy more than straight news. I guess my blog was more of a broadsheet newspaper and everyone else’s a tabloid. I never understood the obsession of schedules in the “cartoon community”, these days you can watch shows anytime you like, I wish that was around when I was a kid.

*ToonZone is now known by “Anime Superhero”, after the name change, I felt they’ve sidelined Western Animation, a niche that they specialised in and attempted to go mass-market into the popular but yet oversaturated market of Japanese anime and superhero movies and comics news websites.

Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe Wins Children’s And Youth Peabody Award

Cartoon Network's Steven Universe Wins Children’s And Youth Peabody Award

Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe Wins Children’s And Youth Peabody Award

Today (18th April), the Peabody Awards has announced the winner of the Children’s and Youth category and has announced Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe as the winner! The Peabody Awards recognises distinguished and meritorious content by American radio and television stations, networks, online media, producing organisations, and individuals, only content of such an extraordinary high standard can win such an award. The Peabody Awards is presented by University of Georgia’s Henry W. Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication. In the same category, Steven Universe had to compete against Netflix’s and Silvergate Media’s critically-acclaimed animated series Hilda.

The Peabody Awards made the following statement on why they chose Steven Universe as this year’s Children’s and Youth winner:

“On its surface, Rebecca Sugar’s animated series develops a complex mythology centering around the Crystal Gems — “polymorphic sentient rocks” who protect young Steven and his human friends from cosmic threats. But in this earnest fantasy epic and superhero saga, empathy is perhaps the most important superpower, something our real-world human society needs now more than ever.”

Congratulations to Rebecca Sugar and the Crewniverse for winning the Children’s And Youth Peabody Award, the 78th Annual Peabody Awards ceremony will be held on Saturday 18th May at the Cipriani Wall Street in New York.

About the Movie

The first-ever live-action Pokémon adventure, “POKÉMON Detective Pikachu” stars Ryan Reynolds as Detective Pikachu and is based on the beloved Pokémon brand—one of the world’s most popular, multi-generation entertainment properties and one of the most successful media franchises of all time. Fans everywhere can now experience a Pikachu on the big screen as never before, as Detective Pikachu, a Pokémon like no other. The film also showcases a wide array of beloved Pokémon, each with its own unique traits and personality.

The story begins when ace detective Harry Goodman goes mysteriously missing, prompting his 21-year-old son Tim to find out what happened. Aiding in the investigation is Harry’s former Pokémon
partner, Detective Pikachu: a hilariously wise-cracking, adorable super-sleuth who is a puzzlement even to himself. Finding that they are uniquely equipped to work together, as Tim is the only human who can talk with Detective Pikachu, they join forces on a thrilling adventure to unravel the tangled mystery. Chasing clues together through the neon-lit streets of Ryme City—a sprawling, modern metropolis where humans and Pokémon live side by side in a hyper-realistic live-action world—they encounter a diverse cast of Pokémon and uncover a shocking plot that could destroy this peaceful co-existence and threaten the whole Pokémon universe.

“POKÉMON Detective Pikachu” also stars Justice Smith as Tim, and Kathryn Newton as Lucy, a junior reporter following her first big story; as well as Suki Waterhouse, Omar Chaparro, Chris Geere, and Rita Ora, with Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe and Bill Nighy.

The film was directed by Rob Letterman, from a story by Dan Hernandez & Benji Samit and Nicole Perlman, screenplay by Dan Hernandez & Benji Samit and Rob Letterman and Derek Connolly, based on the “Detective Pikachu” video game developed by Creatures Inc. It was produced by Mary Parent and Cale Boyter for Legendary Pictures, and Hidenaga Katakami and Don McGowan for The Pokémon Company. Executive producers were Joe Caracciolo, Jr., Ali Mendes, Tsunekazu Ishihara, Kenji Okubo, Toshio Miyahara, Hiro Matsuoka, and Koji Ueda.

Letterman’s creative filmmaking team includes two-time Oscar-nominated director of photography John Mathieson, production designer Nigel Phelps, editors Mark Sanger and James Thomas, and costume designer Suzie Harman. The music is composed by Henry Jackman. Visual effects are by Moving Picture Company and Framestore.

Launched in 1996 to overwhelming response, the Pokémon brand is a global sensation that now encompasses a robust video gaming fandom with over 324 million units sold worldwide; trading card games available in 11 languages with more than 25.7 billion cards purchased; an anime television series in its 21st season that is available more than 160 countries; and over 20 animated films; as well as books, manga comics, music, toys, merchandise, and apps, including the wildly popular Pokémon GO, that has been downloaded over 850 million times and is enjoyed across the globe by fans of all ages.

Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures present a Legendary Pictures Production, in association with Toho Co., Ltd, a Rob Letterman Film, “POKÉMON Detective Pikachu.” It will be distributed outside of Japan and China by Warner Bros. Pictures, in Japan by Toho Company, Ltd. and by Legendary East in China. It is rated PG for “action/peril, some rude and suggestive humor, and thematic elements.”
