Netflix Reveals Details About Its Take On Voltron

We’ve known for a while that the planned Voltron reboot had evolved from a Dreamworks movie into a Dreamworks TV series for Netflix — but now the streaming video company has lifted the lid on how Voltron: Legendary Defenders is taking shape.

'90s Cartoons Were Freakin' Weird, And I Loved It

Last month, it was announced that 25 years’ worth of Nicktoon characters — possibly everyone from Eliza Thornberry to Invader Zim to Ginger to Doug — will join forces in one all-star, ensemble, Avengers-style movie.

Watch The Movie References Used By The Simpsons Side-By-Side With The Actual Scene (NSFW)

The Simpsons' Family Car Is Now Immortalised As A Hot Wheels

Everything from exotic super cars, to blue collar pickup trucks, to even the Goodyear blimp has gotten the Hot Wheels treatment. And now, after over a quarter century on TV, so has the nondescript pink sedan that the Simpson family drives all over Springfield.


10 Of The Most Beautifully Animated Movies Of All Time

It takes a lot of work to make an animated movie and CineFix has come up with a list of what they think the top 10 most beautiful animated movies are.


Why Are Computers So Bad At Jokes?

That was the question a group of researchers — including The New Yorker‘s Cartoon Editor, Bob Mankoff — asked in a study highlighted by Arxiv and MIT’s Technology Review. And, really, asking why robots can’t tell jokes is a roundabout way of asking why humans find anything funny.
