    Similar to what is done on Space Ghost: Coast to Coast, this show can be described as a "cartoon remix" of the 1972 Alex Toth animated show Sealab 2020 in that the producers take the old animated footage, and manipulate it into something hilarious.

    The show centers around the crew of a lab under the sea. Plot and continuity are sacrificed early and often for insanity and clever wit.

    The show ran for four seasons and 52 episodes until it was cancelled in April 2005. Despite rumors of Cartoon Network cancelling the series, the show was in fact ended by decision of 7030 Productions, who felt it was the right time to move on to new projects.

A ghost type figure comes out of the board and tells Hikaru his sad story. His name is Fujiwara no Sai (or Sai of the Fujiwara), a man who was the Go Instructor, a thousand years ago, to the Emperor of Japan. However, Sai was falsely accused of cheating, and was exiled from the city. With no reason to live, Sai committed suicide by drowning himself. Now, he haunts a Go board and wants to achieve the perfect Go game, a move called the "Hand of God." He hopes to do this through Hikaru. Thus this story of growth, learning, and excitement begins... General Note on Airdates: Hikaru no Go does not air on general cable TV, thus all the airdates are that of its Japanese airing.

    The Diclonius, a mutated human that is said to be selected by God and will eventually become the destruction of all of mankind, possess two horns in their heads. In addition, they have vectors, or invisible hands, that can kill their enemy in an instant. Due to this dangerous power, they have been captured and isolated in laboratories by the government. Lucy, who is said to be the first Diclonius, manages to break free of her confines and brutally murders most of the guards in the laboratory where she was being held. She eventually gets shot in the head and drops into the ocean. She survives and manages to drift along to a beach, where two teenage cousins named Kouta and Yuka discover her. Having lost her memory, she was named after the only thing that she can now say, "Nyuu”. The two cousins allow her to stay at Kouta's home. However, it appears that Lucy is not dead just yet, and the government is not going to sit back and let her run free…! Elfen Lied (エルフェンリート) ran for 13 episodes on Japanese TV in 2004, adapting roughly the first 60 chapters out of the107 chapters (12 volumes) of the manga. The series was re-broadcasted in 2005 and was licensed by ADV Films in the United States in 2004, but not released until 2005. According to ADV, the anime was one of their best-selling releases of 2005. General Note on Airdates: The airdates for this guide are the Japanese airdates. Elfen Lied does not air on American TV, except for on ADV’s the Anime Network (TAN). Furthermore, it will most likely never air on general cable TV due to the extreme violence and nudity. The Title: The title 'Elfen Lied' was taken from the German song 'Elfenlied' by Eduard Mörike (1804-1875). The song plays on the similarity between the words for 'elf' and 'eleven', and takes place at eleven o'clock. The Manga: The manga is 12 volumes and 107 chapters long. Episodes 1 to 11 of the anime follow the storyline closely and adapt the first six volumes. The last two TV episodes, which were supposedly based from volume 7, drastically drifted from the manga's storyline. In addition, an original ending to the anime was implemented. The Anime - Opening Theme: Also see Epsidoe One's "Allusions" ~ The images of the opening theme are images from the paintings of Gustav Klimt (1862-1918). Most are from his most famous painting, "The Kiss" (1907-1908). ~ The text of the opening theme is "Beatus vir", an excerpt from the Latin Vulgate edition of the Bible. The passage is from James 1: "Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him." ~ The opening theme’s lyrics include: Psalm 36:30 - “Os iusti meditabitur sapientiam et lingua eius loquetur iudicium" or “The mouth of the just shall meditate wisdom: and his tongue shall speak judgment” "Kyrie Fons Bonitatis" (also known as the trope chant) - "Kyrie, ignis divine, pectora nostra succende, ut digni pariter proclamare possimus semper, eleison" or “Lord, divine fire, inflame our hearts, so that together we may worthily proclaim forever: have mercy” "Ave Mundi Spes Maria" (also known as the medieval sequence hymn) - “Oh, quam sancta, quam serena, quam benigna, quam amoena esse virgo creditur” or "Oh how holy, how serene, how benign, how delightful is this maiden who believed!" All three pieces can be found in the album “Chant” by the famous Benedictine Monks of the Santo Domingo de Silos Monastery.moreless

    Reboot is a Canadian animated show about Sprites that live inside a computer. "I come from the Net--through systems, peoples, and cities--to this place: MAINFRAME. My format: Guardian. To mend and defend--to defend my new found friends, their hopes and dreams, and to defend them from their enemies."

    -Bob's narration from the opening sequence of Reboot (Seasons One, Two, and Four)

    Welcome to the city of Mainframe, a computer system inhabited by binomes and sprites who go about their business, trying to keep everything running smoothly. Unfortunately, they live under the constant threat of the User, whose games wreak havoc, if left unchecked, and the viruses Hexadecimal and Megabyte, who seek to infect and replace the system core with their own malicious code. That's where Guardian Bob comes in. Armed with his versatile key-tool, Glitch, he tries his best to keep citizens safe, upholding his mandate: "To Mend and Defend".

    While ReBoot started as an children's show on ABC, it was later forced to move to other venues, using the increased creative freedom to change its focus towards increased continuity and more intelligent and mature stories during the latter part of the second season. The writers also satirized other TV shows, such as X-Files, as well as video games, such as The Evil Dead, which became something of a "trademark" for the show.

    The third season of ReBoot is currently available on 4 DVDs from ADV Films.

    Showtime, Synergy. Those famous words were spoken by Jem throughout her three year run from 1985-1988. Jem was a beloved 80s rock cartoon that capitalized on the popularity of MTV that perfectly captured the decade's music, fashion and lingo. To this day, Jem is still considered a Truly Outrageous animated series that celebrates the power of love, friendship, ambition and rock 'n roll.

    Jerrica Benton's father left her a very special gift after he died. That gift was Synergy, a holographic computer system that can create realistic holograms of virtually anything. Using special star-shaped earrings, Synergy transforms Jerrica into the glamorous pop singer, Jem. Along with Kimber, Aja and Shana whom are called the Holograms, they have many adventures that take them to places in the US, France, China and Italy.

    Not far behind are their competition, the Misfits, a group led by Pizzazz with her friends Roxy and Stormer. Eventually both groups add a new member to their bands. Raya becomes the new drummer while Shana goes to guitar, and Jetta becomes the new saxophonist for the Misfits. With their additions, both Jem and the Holograms and the Misfits have many new adventures in Mexico, England, Shangri-La and across the U.S.

    The Stingers, a new trio, come to the States and begin to shake things up between Jem and the Holograms and the Misfits. Riot, Rapture and Minx begin to cause problems, all on their own. All three groups have a unique music showcased in the musical videos that appear in every episode.
