The Legend of Zelda

Based upon the original Nintendo game of the same name, here is The Legend of Zelda!

Every episode of Zelda follows the adventures of the hero Link and Princess Zelda as they defend the kingdom of Hyrule from an evil wizard named Ganon. Most episodes consist of Ganon (or his minions) either attempting to capture the Triforce of Wisdom from Zelda, kidnap Zelda, or otherwise conquer Hyrule. In some episodes, Link and Zelda are assisted and accompanied by a fairy-princess, Spryte.
A common running joke of the series is Link's repeated failure to convince Zelda that he deserved a kiss for his heroic deeds. Whenever it seems they are going to kiss, they are interrupted. Zelda has more of an active role in the show than in the video games, where she is merely a character that the player must rescue.
While Link saves Zelda in a few episodes, she often fights beside him using a bow and arrow. Link usually meets Zelda's rejection with his sadistic catchphrase, "Well! Excuuuuuuse me, Princess!". In one episode, Zelda uses a more elegant version reflective of her royal upbringing, "Well! Pardon me!"


Some superhero action now, produced during the Superhero craze of the 90's caused in the wake of Marvel's X-Men cartoon, it's Ultraforce!

Based off the Malibu comic series, this cartoon takes place in the Ultraverse, where new, super-powered beings, called Ultras, are slowly making their presence known to mankind. Some are ancient entities, others, recently transformed into their altered states. But all seem to have a larger purpose in the world. Contrary, a mysterious and exotic woman, assembles a team of Ultras to combat the forces that would see the destruction of Earth and its people, while investigating the origins of Ultras and why they exist.

Prime - A young adolescent granted the ability to create a bio-shell of a large, muscle-bound brute named Prime, an idealized image of adulthood and strength.

Hardcase - A former struggling actor, now an invulnerable action star with great strength.

Prototype - A young recruit to utilize an advanced suit of armor for a corporation, who may hold more power than was originally thought.

Ghoul - A former hero who died and came back, Ghoul is not only haunted by the horrors of his past, but also the precognitive visions he receives of the future. His necro physiology also grants him some advantages.

Topaz - An alien warrior woman transported here by unknown means, she seeks to return to her world by aiding Contrary, hoping to earn a way back. She wields an energy pole and can sheild herself in alloy skin.

Contrary - The mysterious founder and benefactor of Ultraforce, her beautiful exterior hides a precise intellect and years of experience. She has considerable resources at her disposal, and a few mental tricks to throw around.

Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century

Take a great literary detective, cast him into the distant future and what do you get? Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century!

Set in the 22nd century in New London, Inspector Beth Lestrade of New Scotland Yard is chasing grotesquely deformed French rogue geneticist Martin Fenwick, when she realizes that his companion is none other than the 19th century criminal mastermind, Professor James Moriarty (this is not the original Moriarty but in fact his clone, created from cells taken from his corpse, which Holmes had buried in a Swiss ice cave). Famous biologist Sir Evan Hargreaves (who looks just like Doyle) has just invented cellular rejuvenation. Beth knows that Holmes survived and actually lived to a ripe old age, and further knows that his corpse is preserved in a glass-walled, honey-filled coffin in the basement of New Scotland Yard. She takes the body from the basement and delivers it to Sir Evan. The biologist then uses his cellular rejuvenation technique to return life and youth to Holmes's body, so that the detective can combat Moriarty.

The Hurricanes

If you hadn't already been aware, the World Cup is on and if full swing! To celebrate, I give you the great football series The Hurricanes!

The series focused on a fictional soccer team headed by the female inheritor of the teams' legacy, Amanda Carey and their coach, Jock Stone. Stone was notably based on Celtic F.C. manager Jock Stein. During the series, the Hurricanes soccer team would either be battling a renegade soccer club, The Gorgons managed by Stavros Garkos, for pitch supremacy or having wild, unpredictable adventures off the field in exotic world touring locations.

Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons

'This is the voice of the Mysterons...' The phrase that instantly lets everyone know that the indestructible Captain Scarlet isn't far away!

Set in 2068, Captain Scarlet presents the hostilities between Earth and a race of Martians known as the Mysterons. After human astronauts attack their city on Mars, the vengeful Mysterons declare war on Earth, initiating a series of reprisals that are countered by Spectrum, a worldwide security organisation. Spectrum boasts the extraordinary abilities of its primary agent, Captain Scarlet. During the events of the pilot episode, Scarlet acquires the Mysteron healing power of "retro-metabolism" and is thereafter considered to be virtually "indestructible", being able to recover fully from injuries that would normally be fatal.

A little something now that isn't meant to be scary, it's just something to tickle your Funnybones!

Funnybones was a Welsh children's television comedy series which was based on the eponymous series of books by Janet and Allan Ahlberg, which were illustrated by Andre Amstutz and focused upon the adventures of a gang of skeletons (sometimes known as the Funnybones). There was Big Funnybone (whose catchphrase was "Good idea."), Little Funnybone, (who was the brains of the outfit), and Dog ("These Bones") Funnybone (whose catchphrase was "Woof."). Each episode was 5 minutes in length. The voices were provided by popular comedian Griff Rhys Jones who also played Moon Man, who served as the narrator in the TV series.

Scooby Doo Where Are You?

This post is for dear Casey Kasem, the voice of Shaggy who sadly passed away today. RIP Casey.

Scooby Doo, Where Are You! is the first incarnation of the long-running Hanna-Barbera cartoon series Scooby-Doo. The series featured four teenagers—Fred Jones, Daphne Blake, Velma Dinkley and Norville "Shaggy" Rogers—and their talking brown Great Dane dog named Scooby-Doo, who solve mysteries involving supposedly supernatural creatures through a series of antics and missteps.

The Borrowers

Have you ever been looking for something that you knew should be where you last had it, but it's just not there? Ever thought it might have been stolen by little people? It's The Borrowers!

The Clock Family are "borrowers," tiny people who live in the houses of regular sized "human beans" (a borrower mispronunciation of human beings). They survive by borrowing all they need from big people and try to keep their existence secret. The main characters are a teenage borrower girl named Arriety and her parents, Pod and Homily. During a borrowing expedition with her father and contrary to borrower nature, Arriety befriends a human boy named George who lives in the home and develops a friendship with him.
The tiny family, who live under the kitchen floorboards of an old manor, are eventually discovered by the other humans who occupy the home and are forced to flee into the English countryside. After finding an old boot to live in the family befriends a fellow Borrower - a young man who goes by the name "Dreadful Spiller". Spiller helps them find a more permanent home by reuniting them with relations who had formerly ran away from the same manor after one of them was seen and eventually relocated in the caretaker's cabin on the manor's grounds.
