    Max and Ruby

    Max and Ruby

    Follow
    Nickelodeon
    In creator Rosemary Wells's own words, she explains the show's goal:

    "Max and Ruby celebrates the relationship between Ruby and her younger brother, Max, and the universal nature of sibling relationships. It's as common an experience to many childhoods as Band-aids and birthdays. And what makes the relationship in the series compelling is that I've added salt and pepper to it, instead of sugar."

    The residents of the show's universe are all rabbits which children (and even adults!) will find quite adorable. The superb animation appears to have been done on computer (not three dimensional, though) and the artwork itself is very, very well done. The characters' expressions, especially Max's mischievous look, and behaviors are worth watching!

    Interestingly, we never see the parents of Max and Ruby, making it look like they live by themselves in a big house. This has come under criticism by many parents. However, their neighbor-grandmother and other adults do make frequent appearances.

    Rosemary Wells has created many books and shows, such as Timothy Goes to School among others.

    Cast

    Max. An enthusiastic and determined three-year-old who speaks no more than a few words each show. Often at odds with his sister mainly because she doesn't understand him or doesn't want him to do some certain things (such as making noises). He tends to get things his way at the end, though!

    Ruby. Max's seven-year-old sister, a very smart, goal-oriented and responsible (albeit bossy) young lady. Almost in every episode, Ruby is frustrated by Max getting into messes or disobeying her, but she displays a tremendous amount of patience while she tries to set him straight.

    Grandma. Grandmother of Max and Ruby, she lives next-door and often pays them a visit, or vice versa. A c grandmother both in personality and appearance: kind-hearted, generous, crow's feet, and a sweet smile.

    Louise. Best friend of Ruby's, they have a lot of things in common, including being related to curious little boys. Louise is in Bunny Scouts along with Ruby and Valerie.

    Morris. Louise's cousin who is a year or so younger than Max. Appears in very few episodes. (Thanks, Kerry & her daughter for pointing out that Morris is a cousin, not a brother of Louise's.)

    Valerie. Another friend of Ruby's as well as Louise's. She wears glasses and is an intelligent, funny girl. She's also in the Bunny Scouts.

    Martha. One of Ruby's friends and a Bunny Scout, although she appeared in only two episodes or so. Didn't speak much.

    Roger Piazza. Even though the only words he utters are "uh-huh" and "nuh-uh", he is perceived as the cool kid by Ruby and her friends. The "jock" type of boy, he's several months older than Ruby. ("He's seven and a half years old!" gushes Ruby in an episode.)

    The Huffington Family. The family is composed of sweet-tooth Mr. Huffington, friendly Mrs. Huffington, and their adorable kid Baby Huffington. They're well-known locals/neighbors, and Mrs. Huffington often asks Ruby to babysit Baby Huffington.

    Candi. She runs a local candy store and is very generous with candies.

    Rosalinda. The owner of the town's gift shop. Always willing to lend a paw.

    Bunny Scout Leader. (Anyone know her name?) The Bunny Scout Leader guides the girls through the activities to earn their badges. Yes, it's the bunny version of the Girls Scout.

    Mr. Piazza. Roger's father. He owns and runs the grocery store which Roger sometimes helps out at.

    Katie. Owner of a restaurant; she's also the waitress. Not a frequent character and played a role in Ruby's Surprise Party episode.moreless

    Meet Cow and Chicken, who live under a suburban roof with human parents, human friends and inhuman adventures. Fortunately for Chicken, who ruffles the feathers of many a human counterpart, Cow has an alter ego known as Supercow who wields her beefy frame whenever a situation calls for a bovine intervention. Created by David Feiss, Cow and Chicken received a 1998 Prime-Time Emmy nomination. (The above is Cartoon Network's official summary) Cow and Chicken is Cartoon Network's third original series, containing a third segment in each episode, another original series: I Am Weasel. It ran for three seasons before it underwent cancellation. Due to a new show that Cartoon Network has begun airing that combines various episodes of their original series, we may be seeing Cow and Chicken in the future... This is, however, uncertain.moreless

    Welcome to the Knights of the Zodiac guide. (Note: This guide is for the US verison of the Japanese show SAINT SEIYA. For the original show, please goto: http://www.tv.com/shows/saint-seiya/) In this fast-paced futuristic adventure, the Bronze Knights led by Seiya draw upon their amazing martial art skills as well as their mystical power in which each is keyed into a sign of the Zodiac as they attempt to defeat Ikki and the Black Knights who would do anything to gain control of the Gold Cloth of Sagittarius. But beyond the Black Knights are even more deadlier foes...the Silver Knights and the Gold Knights who possess more power than the Bronze Knights can ever imagine and they're being controlled by the ultra force of supernatural evil--Ares the God of War. Seiya and the Bronze Knights must pit themselves in hand-to-hand combat against the most formidable fighters in the universe as they struggle to return Athena the Goddess of War to her rightful throne and assure the peace of the world. Knights of the Zodiac airs on Cartoon Network, Saturdays at 7pm., during the Toonami action programming block. It originally aired as Saint Seiya for 114 episodes in Japan during October 11, 1986 to April 1, 1989 (listed in this guide as Seasons 1-3) The last arc of the manga was animated in November 2002 as a 13 episode OVA called Saint Seiya - The Hades Chapter (listed in this guide as season 4) A second season of the Hades chapter is sheduled to air in November 2004 in Japan, and in the meantime the animation studio is hard at work on a new Saint Seiya movie, which will be out sometime in Spring of 2004. After much Censoring, Editing, and soforth, the series has undergone some drastic changes to the point where it is an entirely different show from the original. ADV Films has released wonderful uncensored versions of Saint Seiya episodes on DVD, the first five episodes on one DVD available now at your local anime store, and any fan of the original series will tell you to pick that up rather than watch blue blood and listen to cheap synth music and annoying dubs as opposed to the beauty that is the original.

    (ended 1995)
    Aladdin has to be among Disney's greatest and beloved characters ever adapted. It all began in 1992, when "Aladdin", the feature film, was released in theaters. Within its first week, it became a major blockbuster. It grew to be so popular that Disney, in 1994, released a sequel featuring the return of the evil villain from the first film in "The Return Of Jafar". They also created the "Aladdin" TV series. After the last episode aired, Disney wrapped up the tales of Aladdin with the 1996 film "Aladdin and the King Of Thieves". NOTE: But even though it would be correct to classify the three movies as part of the series, they are not official episodes and therefore aren't included in the "first aired" and "last aired" categories. The series won 4 Emmy Awards for Outstanding Film Sound Editing, Outstanding Film Sound Mixing, Outstanding Music Direction and Composition and Outstanding Sound Mixing - Special Class. moreless

    BBC Two (ended 2008)
    Postman Pat was based on a series of books by John Cunliffe, the program is about a rural postman who helps his friends in the village of Greendale, based supposedly in Cumbria, England. The first series of thirteen 15-minute episodes was produced by Woodland Animations and broadcast by the BBC in 1981. Ivor Wood, a vetaran of animations like The Magic Roundabout, was at the helm as producer. Ken Barrie sang the well known theme tune and provided the narration. The stories were very successful and have seen endless repeats over the years. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the show in 1991, the old production crew was reunited for two one-off 25 minute specials, again shown by the BBC. Two more came in 1995, and these were followed by a second full series of 13 adventures. Then, after almost 10 years of absence from our screens, Postman Pat returned in 2004 for his third series. This consisted of 25 new episodes and several specials. The model animation was a far cry from the simple look of the early 80's, with brighter sets, much smoother puppet movements and characters voices lip-synched. Ken Barrie is still the voice of our favorite postman, but he is also joined by a cast of other talented voice artists, like Carole Boyd. For the final season in 2008, the series was titled Postman Pat: Special Delivery Service. The show aired on BBC2 from 1981-2002, CBBC from 1986-2002 and at CBeebies from 2003-2008. Reruns continue today on CBeebies.moreless

If that wasn't bad enough, Venom and Carnage are about, having their minds set on global domintation through the help of the Synoptic - a hivemind producing spores that turn people into its mindless slaves. This series ended on a cliffhanger, as Marvel's bankruptcy brought the show to an unexpected end after the first season. Six episodes were produced for the second season, including a conclusion to the first season's finale (which was intended to be a multi-part episode), but never aired. There are currently no plans for a home video release, although Disney has acquired the rights to air and release episodes of the series.moreless

    Timon & Pumbaa

    Timon & Pumbaa

    Follow
    Toon Disney (ended 1999)
    This cartoon series is based on the popular Lion King movie. The sidekicks of the movie, a meerkat named Timon and a warthog named Pumbaa are the main characters of the series. Although the movie's main character, Simba makes some appearances. Main Characters TIMON is the fast-talking meerkat, the supposed "brain of the outfit", though often it seems that Pumbaa's general knowledge actually overshadows his. Timon is still the one to come up with the wittiest and craziest ideas to get them out of (or into) trouble. PUMBAA is the smelly, yet kind warthog who's always ready to help his friends. While Timon is often ready to break the rules to get what he wants, Pumbaa is usually honest and innocent in his intentions. QUINT is the main villain. He has appeared under dozens of aliases such as Congo Quint, Criminal Quint and Corteous Quint. SPEEDY THE SNAIL is a, well, snail. At first Timon and Pumbaa wanted to eat him, but when he started talking and singing, they just couldn't do it. Speedy gets into a lot of trouble for a snail, either he's about to be cooked alive by a French chef or somebody wants to make an earring out of him, and Timon and Pumbaa always have to rescue him. Recurring Characters Princess Tatiana only appeared in one episode, but she is a vital part of Timon's past, since he almost married her. The Natives seem to pop up in tropical places every now and then. In fact they are not really natives, just a bunch of college kids who like to spend their free time dressing up as natives. The Vulture Police are two "jungle police" vultures that always finish each others' sentences and talk very fast. Toucan Dan might seem nice, but he is a big liar and he can make you believe anything he says. He's prosecuted by the Vulture Police, and usually gets someone blamed for his misdeeds. Boss Beaver has the total opposite motto of Timon and Pumbaa, "Makuta Hamaka", which according to him means "work hard". Rabbit is a magical pink hare that Timon once pulled out of a hat. He appears in a few episodes and he always means trouble for the duo. Irwin the Penguin is a very unlucky penguin with a very annoying voice who causes problems for everyone around him, especially Timon, which is why Timon can't stand him. The Hyenas are the three dumb hyenas that we already met in the movie. Banzai, Shenzi and Ed, appear on the show sometimes even in their own segment. Simba from The Lion King makes an appearance a couple of times. Rafiki is another familiar character from the movie. He appears in his own episodes sometimes, and sometimes gives Timon and Pumbaa advice. Fred is Timon's old friend from his meerkat colony. He loves to pull practical jokes on people. Timon & Pumbaa is currently airing on Toon Disney, check your local listings! First Telecast: September 8, 1995 This series won 3 Emmy Awards for Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program - Nathan Lane, Outstanding Individual in Animation - color director - Beethoven's Whiff and Outstanding Sound Mixing - Special Class.

Set in the big city Clifford and Emily Elizabeth lived in before moving to Birdwell Island, this series features Clifford's adventures when he was just a small puppy.

    FOX (ended 2000)
    The Avengers: United They Stand (also called The Avengers) was an animated series based on the popular Marvel comic book series. The Avengers: United They Stand aired on FOX (Fox Kids), in 1999 on the Saturday Morning Cartoon Block. The Avengers are the world's foremost superheroes, protecting the world from incredible globe-threatening villains. Whether they're robotic like Ultron, time-traveling like Kang the Conqueror, extra-terrestrials like The Zodiac, or just super-powered like any other villain, the Avengers are more than a match for any foe. The Avengers only lasted one season with thirteen episodes. The series was both a critical and commercial failure. A second season was planned, but never occurred. Some say the show's lack of success was because the three characters, Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor (also known as the "Big Three" Avengers) did not star in it.moreless

    Transformers Cybertron

    Cartoon Network (ended 2006)
    In the new series, OPTIMUS PRIME and the AUTOBOTS face the greatest danger in all eternity, a menace that threatens not only the survival of the TRANSFORMERS, but the very existence of CYBERTRON, the home of the TRANSFORMERS race, and the universe itself. This next installment is "more than meets the eye" with a complex story of intrigue and surprises, and a reminder to fans what it means to be "ROBOTS IN DISGUISE"! The stage of the Transformers battles are various planets in the universe. A black hole which appears at the end of an intense Transformers battle and others fighting begins to be swallowed by a star & the universe has met the crisis of its disappearance/destruction. The Cybertron forces of justice is led by Optimus Prime. While in order to protect the entire universe, they encounter the inhabitants of various planets, the evil forces of Megatron unfolds a fight. Optimus Prime: Optimus Prime is a leader in the best sense of the word, taking point on every mission and never sending his team into any situation he wouldn't go himself. Dedicated to the protection of all life and the preservation of freedom for all sentient beings, he serves as a role model for his fellow Autobots. It is through his keen intelligence, even hand, steady nerves and endless compassion that the Autobots sontinue to frustrate de Decepticons evil plans again and again. In a desperate race against time, Optimus Prime has been forced to send teams of his best soldiers into unknown parts of the Universe in search of the lost planet keys, ancient artifacts with the power to save Cybertron and the rest of the Universe from the giant black hole formed from the implosion of Unicron. Jetfire: He is sincere & is a vice-commander whose reliance is also thick. He is also a realist who can clearly advocate objections from a clear point of view to make difficult judgments & simultaneously manages the given command exactly when it is given. At the time of the Earth migration, he proposed disguising himself so not to disturb the Earth governments. Hot Shot: A natural leader with a lot yet to learn, Hot Shot often races straight into danger at top speed. He takes great pride in the fact that he's the fastest Autobot there is, but it isn't until he gets to the Speed Planet that he learns the true meaning of velocity. Faced by the almost unbeatable Override, Hot Shot needs to learn a whole new way of thinking about acceleration before he can win the Great Race. Landmine: With a wisdom born of experience, and a tactical knowledge unmatched among the Autobot ranks, Landmine is a soldier other 'bots follow without reservation. He suffered heavy injuries in the final fight with Unicron. After a crash-landing on Earth, he was repaired by the new human allies of the Autobots. An excellent battlefield commander, he's determined to prevent the Decepticons from gaining an edge by recovering the Earth Cyber Planet Key. Overhaul/ Leobreaker: One tough Autobot, Overhaul has never thought much of intellectual pursuits. His solution to a complex problem is generally to stomp on it until it gets simple or stops being a problem. He's never felt that he's had the respect his strenght deserves from the other Autobots, but now that he's on the Jungle Planet - where might makes right - he feels right at home. Override eventually taps into the Jungle Planet key and is reformatted into Loebreaker, a mighty lion Transformer. With his new form, he can link with Optimus and form the mighty savage claw mode. Scattorshot: Probably the most neurotic Autobot ever created, Scattorshot always gets the job done. As the right hand 'bot to Jetfire in protecting Earth, he worries so much about messing up in front of his legendary commander that he sets a nearly impossible standard for himself. Despite his nervous clumsiness, he somehow never seems to fail, but his good luck just serves as proof to him that somewhere in the universe is a huge stone of bad karma just waiting for the right moment to come crashing down on him. Vector Prime: Vector Prime is one of the first Transformers. A powerful, wise and incredibly ancient warrior, he has served as protector over Cybertron since its beginnings. Pulled out of the shadows of time by a distress signal broadcast by his damaged planet, he arrives too late to save Cybertron without assistance. Arising from an era in which all Transformers lived in harmony, he is unaware of the conflict between the Autobots and Decepticons, a fact that Megatron uses to trick him and steal the map to the lost planets and the planet keys. Realizing his mistake, he joins Optimus Prime and pledges his knowledge and skill to the desperate quest to retrieve the planet keys before Megatron. Override: Long-time champion and leader of the Speed Planet, Override is always ready for a race. Acceleration is her only ideal, but she respects anyone with the guts to challenge her. She's faced and beaten thousands of upstart speedsters in her time. At first she's suspicious of the intentions Hot Shot and th Autobots have for her world's Cyber Planet Key, but once she realizes what's at stake she's only too glad to help. The Minicons Jolt, Six Speed and Reverb: Small Transformers with many mysteries accompanying Vector Prime. They are full of curiosity and enjoy interaction with the children. Their information of Earth is promptly absorbed through the INTERNET. Snarl: This wolf bot joined the Autobot forces on Jungle Planet where he helped Override sift through the elements. He was accused of being a traitor by Scourge, but Leobreaker refused to let him die allowing Snarl to join the Autobots. His wolf form gives him great speed against his enemies, and his pride make him a willing servant to all the Autobots. Decepticon Forces: Megatron: For millions of years, Megatron has lead fanatical legions of evil Decepticons on their war for conquest of the Universe. A living weapon with dozens of self-inflicted modifications made in the name of increased power and destructive capability, his only weakness is his single-minded desire for the enslavement of the Universe. His intellect, ego and talent for deception are second to none, and he rules his Decepticons with an iron-fisted combination of fear and force of personality. Driven by a nearly insane lust for power, Megatron managed not only to survive the catastrophic implosion of Unicron, but also to absorb much of his power. Now, wearing salvaged pieces of the ancient destroyer's armor, Megatron is awesomely powerful, and is determined to beat Optimus Prime and the Autobots to the lost planet keys. Starscream: Unsurpassed in ego or ambition, Starscream is the scheming second-in-command to Megatron. With his mastery of the sword, null-ray cannons that can disrupt the functioning of even the most hardened Autobot and a vast array of secondary weapons, Starscream is second only to Megatron and Optimus Prime in power. His speed is uncanny, oftne giving slower 'bots the impression that he actually teleports around the battlefield. Left stranded on Earth to battle Jetfire - the only Autobot warrior capable of even coming close to matching Starscream for speed or skill in aerial combat - he plots to seize a Cyber Planet Key for himself in order to gain the power he needs to finally overthrow Megatron and take command of the Decepticon army himself. Though his battle prowess is legendary, he lacks the practical intelligence to hide his ambition from his leader, and Megatron is more than aware of his plotting. Thundercracker: This loyal Decepticon works under the command of Starscream for the recovery of the Planet Key on Earth. Thundercracker believes that the most effective way to defeat an enemy is to terrorize and demoralize him before attacking. The mere sound of his focused sonic booms - audible for more than 200 miles - is enought to frighten many other Transformers. Crumplezone: Trusting but dumb, Crumplezone is often drawn into serving as the muscle to back up the paranoid plotting of his partner Ransack. Huge, powerful and superfast, Crumplezone is sometimes surprised by sudden turns. Not that it matters - he's the biggest guy on the Speed Planet, and crashing straight ahead through whatever gets in his way is his specialty. Twin-turbine ramjets can propel him at nearly the speed of sound, and selective thrust reversal allows him to fire hypersonic, high-explosive slugs nearly 12 miles. Ransack: Skittish and suspicious, Ransack is a loudmouth bully, always ready to intimidate others into giving him what he wants, but only when his big partner Crumplezone is around. With the energy of the Speed Planet flowing through his circuitry, everything about him is fast - sometimes too fast. Unable to stop thinking or moving, his hyperactive mind tends to draw connections between unconnected things, and sees conspiracy everywhere. Dirt Boss: A wild outlaw, rugged villain of the rough backwaters of the Speed Planet, those who are fooled by the sheer size of Dirt Boss into thinking he's slow are soon left choking on his exhaust. He lives to pound his opponents into the dust and leave them spinning their wheels - that's if he decides to leave the wheels attached. Hot Shot is certain to learn some tough lessons from him. Scourge: Scourge is the brutal and awesomely powerful ruler of the Jungle Planet. He views any display of kindness, compassion or generosity as weakness, and he hates weakness. Cold, distant, and prone to violent rage against those he views as lesser creatures, he holds most of the Jungle Planet firmly in his transmetal claw. Those defying him are likely to experience the searing heat of his stellar plasma breath, or the bite of his axe as their final sensation before their spark is extinguished. Overhaul, Snarl, and the Jungle Planet rebels will find him to be the most powerful foe they have ever faced. Sideways: This Transformer claims to be a spy for the Autobots, but he has joined Starscream at trying to overthrow Megatron's regimine and is now watching Starscream as he is filled with the power of Primus. He has the ability to shift the logo on his outfit, but it is unknown if he really is working for either side, or if he has his own plans in mind. Humans: Coby: A proud 14 year old boy who is proficient in repairs and reconstruction of mechanisms. Under the influence of his father who was a racer, motor crossing has become his hobby. He is vigorous and a cheerful character, but in secret, he worries about the comparison with the excellent records of his older brother and has thoughts of wanting to be accepted/recognized by his father is strongly above necessity. Brad: He is the 11 year old younger brother of Coby. He loves to watch "B" movies of Sci-Fi, Kung Fu and crime, and imitates them well. Although his wild way of thinking is shocking, it invites humor, which occasionally has even saved him in time of crisis. His communication with the Mini-Cons is possible without intentionally knowing why. Lori: This 14 year old city girl is taken to the country by her parents who have a taste for the outdoors. Although it is a harsh place, she stubbornly continues her city lifestyle. She cannot adhere to phenomenon that much, but her different sense of values can be accepted. Professor Suzuki: This scientist was looking for life on other planets when she ran into the kids in her lab. Later on her way to search in the Antartic she paid for heavy coats for the kids and ended up learning about the Autobots. Now she tries to search for any skills that will assist the Transformers at saving Earth. Colonel Franklin: his military man has been searching for Transformers so he could thank them for saving his life when he was a kid, but his disguise is to make it look like he is preventing aliens from invading Earth. The dvd is now available In addition to the new episodes on Saturday, Cybertron also airs weekdays at 6:30 AM on CN.moreless
