Five Lesser Known 90s Cartoons

The Nineties were an odd time for cartoons. For every Batman: the Animated Series which managed to grab a slice of longterm nostalgia, there were at least five other shows that managed to disappear into the gloom, only to emerge later to the horror of innocent viewers later on.

Here are a couple of those such shows. Some good, some bad, some downright bizarre, but all not really that well remembered by people these days. So here goes!

Atop the Fourth Wall: Secret Origins Month - Wonder Woman and the Fantastic Four

Doctor Who: the Movie?

Well, it's that time of year again... and by that I mean it's time for someone to say that they're gonna be making another Doctor Who movie.

Yup, the BBC and David Yates, of the Harry Potter movies, are apparently making a Who movie that'll be independant from the television show, as the Beeb say "putting a fresh spin on the source material".

Is this a good or a bad thing? Well... the last Doctor Who movies were the ones starting Peter Cushing, and they had their retrocharm, I guess. And the Daleks looked like ET outside of their suits!

The next one was the pilot that was created with Paul McGann, which seems to be generally disliked, but I kind of liked it for what it was. They did a lot with a bigger budget, which was pretty neat with things like the design of the inside of the TARDIS.

Hopefully a bigger budget version of Doctor Who might be good, as long as it doesn't deviate too much from the original source.
