    Dexter's Laboratory

    Dexter's Laboratory

    Cartoon Network (ended 2003)
    Dexter's Laboratory is the story of a young boy prodigy. Born with an extraordinary mind, Dexter has built his very own extremely high-tech and expansive laboratory in his room that NASA could only dream of. But Dexter has to keep his lab a secret for fear others will exploit it. Through out the years, Dexter has had to hide his lab from his parents and others but it is no easy task. All Dexter wants is to spend all the time he can inventing new things in his lab, but between his stupid and annoying older sister Dee Dee constantly barging into his lab and tearing up the place and his arch enemy and rival genius Mandark constantly tiring to take over his lab, Dexter's life is anything but easy. Dexter's Laboratory was originally premiered on Cartoon Network as part of the inaugural, Space Ghost hosted, "World Premiere Toons" before becoming a feature with two full shorts on the regular series, a.k.a. the What a Cartoon Show, it eventually became a series itself. Characters: Dexter - Dexter is the big guy here to spite his short size. Dexter's IQ is enough to rival his role model, Albert Einstein. Dexter is an impressionable little boy who loves action. He is always looking for a fight in his giant Robo-Dexter or against his rival, Mandark and when he isn't doing that or working in his lab, he is playing with his action figures or watching TV. You would be hard pressed to see Dexter outside unless he is doing some sort of experiment or fighting some sort of evil. But other than all that, Dexter spends all his time in his lab. Dexter is constantly working on something new and building on to the lab. So much in fact that he has some inventions he can't even remember making and there are parts of the lab he doesn't know anything about. Naturally, Dexter is the head of his class much to the dismay of his fellow students. Dexter is pretty much devoid of friends but he isn't really bothered by it. As long as he can work in his lab, Dexter lives on. Dee Dee - Dexter's older sister is a very happy and delightful girl. Being taller and older than Dexter gives her a sisterly edge. Dee Dee is one of the few who knows about Dexter's lab as she stumbled upon in when the both were younger. But Dexter does not need to worry about her spilling the secret as no one would believe her even if she did. Dee Dee lives in her own little world complete with unicorns, imaginary dragons, and talking ponies. Her room is a pink nightmare of stuffed animals and dolls that Dexter must avoid at all costs. So naturally, no one really takes her seriously. She is a dancer and a singer but insists on practicing in the lab and wreaking the place in the process. She also has some athletic skill in most sports. But behind it all, Dee Dee is actually a very caring sister who does truly love her little brother. Mom - Mom is a happy home maker who can't stand filth in any form. You will be hard pressed not to find her wearing her yellow gloves. She, like Dexter, wears them everywhere. Mom always has dinner on the table by the time Dad gets home and is always willing for a bit of "playing around" with her husband at anytime. She gets the kids on the bus in the morning and off in the evening. Just your standard work at home Mom who sits on the brink of insanity at times. Dexter seems to take after her with her hard work ethic and inability to stop once she starts. She works in the kitchen much like Dexter works in the lab and hates it when Dad drops in to bother her. Dad - Dad is the typical working man. He leaves in the morning for work and comes home in the evening for dinner. He loves sports and working with his tools. He is a handy man and handles most of the hard work around the house. He likes to mess around with his family, especially Dexter. He enjoys annoying his wife in the kitchen and giving her a playful little pinch in the butt. His constant attempts to get Dexter out of his room and into a uniform of some sort usually are forfeit. He is an outdoors man as well. He loves to fish and camp. Dad is a very laid-back guy. Dee Dee seems to take after Dad with his sports skill, his love of the outside, and his thrive at being annoying. Mandark - Mandark is Dexter's rival and he is totally evil. Mandark is on the same intellectual level as Dexter and has proved it many times. He also has his own lab in his room though it doesn't seem to be a secret as Dexter's. Mandark's lab is bigger and better than Dexter's and he never misses a chance to reminded Dexter of that fact. Mandark's #1 ambition is to shut down Dexter's lab thus making him the only genius around. Mandark is always looking for a way to outdo Dexter in anyway possible. Mandark also has a major crush on Dee Dee which is a point that Dexter exploits all the time. His parents are actually peace loving and hippies in a sense. He repents his parent's ways, but still is forced by them to do peaceful rituals when the time comes.

    Cartoon Network (ended 2005)
    Created by Craig McCracken, The Powerpuff Girls has become popular with a broad audience. The Powerpuff Girls first incarnation was as a project for Craig McCracken's college class at The California Arts Institution in 1992. Three years later, the crew at Cartoon Network saw it and gave it its first pilot in 1995. Later on in the following year, The Powerpuff Girls had their second pilot, and finally a TV series in 1998.

    The show is about three little girls who were created in a laboratory experiment by Professor Utonium, who combined sugar, spice, and everything nice in an effort to create the perfect little girl. However, the professor accidentally added some "Chemical X" into the mix, and the three girls were born from the resulting explosion. With their super charged powers, they challenge the forces of evil so that justice will prevail.

    The Powerpuff Girls is one of Cartoon Network's original animated series and is part of the collection known as Cartoon Cartoons.

    The Powerpuff Girls is one of Cartoon Network's highest rating shows.

    Craig McCracken is also the creator of Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends.

    Characters:

    Blossom - According to the closing credits' theme song, Blossom is "commander and the leader" of the Powerpuff Girls. The most intelligent and intellectual one of them all, she comes up with most of the plans to defeat the villains. She has very long red hair. At times she can be bossy but she always finds a way to keep her sisters from fighting each other. Her element is everything nice.

    Bubbles - Bubbles is "the joy and the laughter" of the group. As the sweetest one of all, she is overly sensitive and just hates to fight with her sisters. Even though she may seem bubbly on the outside she really is tough on the inside and proves at times to be hardcore as her sisters. Her element is sugar.

    Buttercup - Buttercup is "the toughest fighter." Her philosophy is to fight first and ask questions later. She is the most eager to defeat the villains on their missions. Though she seems tough all the time, she does have a sensitive side to her, which she rarely shows. Her element is spice.

    Professor Utonium - The creator of The Powerpuff Girls, Professor Utonium is their father-figure who guides, teaches, and loves the girls.

    Mojo Jojo - The most maniacal of all the villains, Mojo hates The Powerpuff Girls with a vengeance. He used to be known simply as Jojo, the Professor's lab assistant, but after The Powerpuff Girls' birth, the chemicals that created them affected him as well and mutated his brain. Ever since then, he's dedicated his life to crushing them and the world that loves them.

    Him - Known as the evilest of evil, Him is a devil figure who despises The Powerpuff Girls. His plans to destroy them are typically the most psychologically twisted, but he always fails in his efforts.

    Fuzzy Lumpkins - A country hillbilly. Fuzzy doesn't really care about world domination or taking over Townsville. He just wants people off his property, and turns into a dangerous monster that the girls must fight when anyone violates his personal space.

    Princess Morebucks - A spoiled brat with a rotten temper. Princess is rich and gets anything she wants -- but when she meets The Powerpuff Girls, having super powers is what she wants most but can never have. She uses technology to act duplicitous, in hopes of either joining or destroying the Powerpuff Girls, but her efforts always fail.

    The Mayor - The dumb, but lovable ruler of Townsville. He mindlessly watches over Townsville and when there's trouble he uses the hotline and alerts the Powerpuff Girls right away.

    Ms. Bellum - The beautiful brains behind the Mayor. Whenever the Mayor does something stupid, she corrects it. He would be lost without her. She is also an important female role model for the Powerpuff Girls. In many ways, Ms. Bellum and the Powerpuff Girls are the most powerful people in Townsville.

    Ms. Keane - A teacher at Pokey Oaks Kindergarten who is a mentor to The Powerpuff Girls. She is gentle and kind, and when there are problems in the oom, she shows The Powerpuff Girls a better solution without violence.

    The Amoeba Boys - Three villains that desperately try to come up with crimes worthy of getting the Powerpuff Girls attention, so they can be considered super villains and go to jail. But they're just amoebas, and their efforts never really come to much.

    The Gang Green Gang - A gang comprised of 5 mutated green-skinned teens. Their names are Ace, Big Billy, Grubber, Snake, and Lil' Arturo. Unlike most villains they are not that concerned about taking over Townsville. They just love to commit petty crimes.

    Sedusa - Yet another villain, Sedusa is a medusa-like figure who has snake-like hair, the source of her superpowers. She is a master of disguise who uses her feminine wiles to seduce men into giving her want she wants and escaping crimes.

    The Rowdyruff Boys - The evil male counterparts of The Powerpuff Girls, these three boys were originally created by Mojo Jojo, using snips, snails, and puppy-dog tails, which he mixed together in a disgusting prison toilet. Their powers are a fairly even match for the girls.

    Dial M For Monkey is the hilarious cartoon spinoff of Dexter's Laboratory. The shorts follow Dexter's lab monkey, Monkey (Frank Welker), who is actually a superhero. In certain Dexter's Laboratory episodes, the middle segment would either be a Dial M For Monkey episode or a Justice Friends episode. These segments would often cross over into one another, creating a pretty hilarious universe of characters. During his adventures, Monkey is forced to confront many dangerous enemies. With the help of trusted special agent Honeydew, Monkey faced-off against Huntor, the self-described "ultimate cosmic hunter;" Magmanamus, a grumpy lava creature; Orgon Grindor, a musician with an evil streak; Rasslor, the intergalactic wrestling champ; Barbequor, a hungry deity looking to devour earth; and Peltra, a female foe dead set on skinning Monkey for his precious fur. Dial M For Monkey got its title in part from Alfred Hitchcock's Dial M For Murder and DC Comics' Dial H for Hero.moreless

    Cartoon Network (ended 2000)
    Welcome to the Mike Lu & Og Guide at TV.com. Mike Lu & Og is one of Cartoon Network's shows that belongs to a collection of original network series known as Cartoon Cartoons. It premiered on Friday May 7, 1999 during the Cartoon Cartoons Fridays block. The show features a spunky, red-haired girl named Mike (short for Micheline; call her that and you'll be in big trouble), who's a foreign exchange student from Manhattan, New York, a stuck-up island princess named Lu, her cousin Og, a native boy and a scientific genius who can come up with a number of inventions as they go through the wackiest adventures as Mike learns the customs of the island of Albonquetine and the natives, in turn, learn of American culture. REGULAR CHARACTERS: Mike, a young girl from New York City who is stuck on the island. She's an exchange student on the island paradise of Albonquetine and is doing her best to fit in with the natives, while keeping her New York attitude. She often tells the islanders about common items and aspects of American culture that are rather new to them. Lu also known as LuLu, or "Princess Lu" (mainly to herself) is the island's resident brat. She has a pet turtle named Lancelot, who's friendly, but usually treated meanly by his mistress, who spends most of her time trying to get attention or trying to get rid of Mike, because most times she's able to steal the spotlight away from her. Og is Lu's cousin and gets along well with pretty much everybody. He's a genius, so he spends most of his time in his "lab" which is actually a little workshop inventing things for use on the island...many of the items he invents are food or for play (hot dogs made of coconuts for Mike, a sidewalk all over the island for skating, etc.) Alfred is Og's father and a kind man, albeit absent-minded sometimes. His main hobby is hunting, usually with a bow and plunger-tipped arrows. He particularly goes after a very elusive wombat, who with wit or dumb luck often gets away. Margery is Alfred's wife and Og's mother. She's skilled at island cooking and an artist, specializing in sculpting with chisels. She works hard, but often takes time to stop for a cup of tea at least once a day, for it's always an island custom. Wendel is Lu's father and governor of Albonquetine Island. He's often at home passing laws and approving documents, but also helps the islanders celebrate special holidays and reminding them of their history. He has a pet parrot named Skipper who at times can get on his nerves, but would be lonely without him. Queeks is the island elder the gang seeks for advice. He also has magic abilities that at times can go awry. He's a good old man, but often cranky. RECURRING CHARACTERS: Goat, Pig, and Spiney (the Porcupine) make up the island's Philosophical Society with Og. They have weekly meetings discussing various topics, a number of which lead to debate. They're all intellectuals, but speak only in Og's presence and act like regular animals when anyone else walks by. The Pirates, consisting of The Captain, Mate and Bos'n, live off the island where there's little food and they're always hungry as a result. Their favorite delicacy is turtle soup which usually leads to danger for Lancelot if they ever cross paths, as he's sure to be captured and put in their pot. Fortunately for him, Mike, Lu and Og are always around to rescue him. The Cuzzlewits are the clan that live on the other side of Albonquetine Island. They're wilder and more savage than the regular gang Mike knows. But there's at least one exception with preteen girl Hermione, who's smart and sophisticated, particularly by they way she speaks. She not afraid to offer her opinions and advice and is friendly to Mike, Lu, and Og. But she has two younger brothers Haggis and Baggis, who more than make up for their sister's lack of wildness. Other links to Mike, Lu, & Og: wikipedia imdb big cartoon database Lineup History: The show premiered on Cartoon Network on May 7, 1999. It ran for two seasons from June 1999-August 2000 with 2 shorts per half-hour block. It went off that network a couple of years later, but returned on sister channel Boomerang in late 2006, where it's certain to remain. Opening theme song: (To a calypso beat) Mike, Lu, and Og--On the island, Mike, Lu, and Og--Pretty island, Where nobody goes. Palm tree and blue sky, Fish are jumping high, It's an island where nobody knows. Ain't no burger stand, Ain't no disco band, On the island where nobody goes. Whooooo-whoooo-whooo-weee!

    "140 years ago in Kyoto,with the coming of the 'Black Ships', there arose a warrior called Hitokiri Battousai. Felling men with his blood stained blade, he closed the turbulent Bakumatsu era and slashed open the age known as Meiji. Then he vanished, and with the flow of years, became a legend. In the 11th year of Meiji, in the middle of Tokyo this tale begins..."

    Rurouni Kenshin (the OAVs and Movie are known as Samurai X) tells the story of a wanderer named Kenshin, who used to be called Hitokiri Battousai (Hitokiri means Assassin) during the Japanese civil war, and is now trying to make up for his past and all his murders by helping those in trouble with his reverse-blade sword and by using his powerful technique called Hiten-Mitsurugi Ryu to battle oppressors of freedom and justice, yet struggling with himself and his own murdering self.

    During the series Kenshin joins others in his quest: Kaoru Kamiya, a young orphan girl who became tutor of the Kamiya-Kashin Ryu Kendo; Sanosuke Sagara, a mercenary who used to bear the name Zanza and fights just with his incredibly powerful fists; Yahiko Myojin, a young boy who was rescued by Kenshin from mafia and now a pupil on Kaoru's dojo; and Megumi Takani, a female doctor who was rescued by Kenshin from a band which forced her to make a lethal drug. Together they all fight those who oppress the weak while they seek their destiny as well happiness and redemption.

    The series is based on a homonymous manga created by Nobuhiro Watsuki, which was first published in 1994. The anime adapts the manga until a cycle called Legend of Kyoto, later featuring new story arcs which were not featured in the manga.moreless
