You Should Watch Kid Cosmic

Kid Cosmic premiered on Netflix on February 2nd, and if you haven’t watched it yet, you should!

What’s that? You wanted a bit more to go on? Well, Kid Cosmic’s visual style is meant to call back to old newspaper comics, and it makes the show look like it’s one of the Kid’s comics put into motion. It has a soundtrack to match, selling an old feel despite the presence of smartphones.

And, of course, Kid Cosmic tells a superhero origin story full of heart. It may make you sad in the middle, but that’s only to add to the coming triumph.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 339: Collection Quest

GC13 and David discuss Collection Quest from Glitch Techs.

It may not be his debut, but the Robo-Burgr definitely gets some time to shine, as does Miko’s sister (high school is scary). This one is a favorite episode of GC13, and that means it’s time to get nerdy!

So whether or not you buy into any conspiracy theories regarding the nature of plixels, may your quests always bring you barrels of XP.

Cartoon Network February 2021 Ratings Report

Well, this is rare: Cartoon Network gave us a stable schedule of weekly episode premiers in February. Teen Titans Go!, Total Dramarama, and Craig of the Creek premiered on Saturday mornings while Bakugan: Battle Planet premiered early on Sunday mornings.

There will be more of the same during March, so it will be great to compare ratings.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 338: I Heart Heartforde

GC13 and David discuss I Heart Heartforde, the episode about the least-magical place on Summer Camp Island!

Yes, it’s true: the food doesn’t talk to you, and your microphone doesn’t interject when you’re trying to record a podcast. The toilet paper isn’t even scented! In short, it’s exactly where Oscar had to go to get what he needed.

Mr. Toothpaste, your sacrifice will be remembered.

Anti-Intellectualism in She-Ra and the Princesses of Power

This is a video that’s been a year coming. The last time I covered this topic, I had to cut it down to just discussing Entrapta’s lack of ethics, but now I’m able to give a more serious look at the accidental anti-intellectualism that leaked into She-Ra and the Princesses of Power by way of Entrapta, Hordak, Lance, and George.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 337: Captured Clops

GC13 and David discuss Captured Clops from Mao Mao: Heroes of Pure Heart.

How far will one badger go to avoid doing either of his chores? Apparently all the way into the comforting arms of the Sky Pirates—and Orangusnake’s chair.

Has Badgerclops ever been this desperate to avoid his chores? No, not really. But that’s okay: we love Mao Mao for its cartoony nature. Now if only the Sky Pirates would more consistently be some kind of a threat…

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 336: Alpha Leader

GC13 and David discuss Alpha Leader from Glitch Techs.

Is it wise to try to imitate Mitch? We doubt that very much. But when you’re trying to impress some p-cool techs, you can put yourself under so much pressure you’re bound to make mistakes.

Since we know that Mitchpires have reflections though, how can you detect them? Just watch out the next time someone wants to lead your team, okay?

How Glitch Techs Made Me A Better Gamer

For a long time I’ve told myself that I can’t play games requiring quick response times anymore, but watching Glitch Techs made me wonder how true that was. Though it took some time to find the right game, I was eventually successful!

So thank you Glitch Techs: after your inspiration, I am now a better, more well-rounded gamer. Balance has been restored.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 335: The Haunted Campfire

GC13 and David discuss The Haunted Campfire from Summer Camp Island.

Well it took twenty-four episodes, but we finally got to see the Summer Camp Island spin on the ghost stories around a campfire episode.

If your worst fear is a ghost made out of toast who has to be the most handsome person in the room, you’ve definitely graduated beyond bumblebees. Congratulations Oscar.

Cartoon Network January 2021 Ratings Report

Cartoon Network was very sparing with its episode premiers in January 2021, but we did get premiers for four shows: Bakugan: Battle Planet, Craig of the Creek, Teen Titans Go!, and Total Dramrama.

With so few premiers to look at the ratings for, we also have plenty of time to look at how poor the ratings are compared to even just one year ago.
