Remember when Saturday mornings were worth getting up for? While we can’t provide a four-hour block of programming, here’s some retro news you may have missed (or simply want to revisit) from the past week.
Saturday Morning TV:
In the name of the moon (and in honor of Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal’s premier today), we’re watching Sailor Moon this morning! I don’t think it ever aired on Saturday mornings, but the new one does so we’ll let that go this week. This is “A Friend in Wolf’s Clothing” (DiC) from the first season, the last episode Nephrite appears in. OMG ALL THE FEELS. NO CHOCOLATE PARFAIT FOR YOU:(
Breaking Pokemon News:
Do you like Pokemon and orchestral arrangements? Do you live in DC or PA? Then you’re in luck! because the Pokemon Orchestral Concert Tour has been announced!
Obligatory X-Men News:
In X-Men: Apocalypse news, Bryan Singer posted a picture of a script page and now we’re kind of frothing at the mouth in anticipation of the film (okay, we were frothy before this, too).
Thanks to the work of Nintendo Player and some anonymous posters, a ROM of the unreleased Famicom prototype Parody World: Monster Party is now available. This is one of Lee’s favorite games, and we’re both excited about the long sought-after prototype surfacing (and not having to pay a gazillion dollars for it). You may have played Monster Party in North America, but this is a completely different beast. Be sure to check out the Nintendo Player site because that is just a treasure trove of information on prototypes and other neat stuff!
The Reading Rainbow Kickstarter raised a ho-jillion dollars! Well, more like $5.4 million, which is kind of like a ho-jillion when you remember that their original goal was $1 million.
In Case You Missed It:
Linz celebrated Canada Day in style by writing about Jumbo Video, a rental store of days gone by with free popcorn and a dungeon full of horror movies. Wait, what?
