Mighty Max cartoon intro HD + restoration of episodes

I was obsessed with Dinosaurs as a kid so when I saw this cute little playset with a dinosaur I asked my mother for it. It was a Mighty Max figure and from there on I became a huge fan and had a ton of playsets. Sadly I never got to watch the cartoon besides an episode or two until a few years ago online. The Mighty Max cartoon is very different from the stories on the playsets but is loved by many. While it may be different it’s still an awesome cartoon that I’m sure I’ll talk about in the future but we can take a look at the opening today and some information that might be interesting to fans of the show.

Looking back on.. Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego? Review

Thanks to Netflix the world’s greatest thief Carmen Sandiego is back on the spotlight which she hadn’t really had since the 90s. What started as a computer game which received various sequels it also ended up getting various spin-offs, from two ame shows: “Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?” and “Where in time is Carmen Sandiego?” to an animated series, and what better way to show appreciation than with a quick review / overview of the 90’s cartoon “Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego?”.

We should first talk about the opening which is super catchy and there’s a reason for that since it’s actually a modern version with lyrics of Mozart’s “Singt dem grossen Bassa Lieder”. They really did a good job that this was some sort of crazy quest to find this one person who keeps outsmarting them all in the intro. Since it’s a song that you’ve heard so much in life it means that you already feel familiar with the show even if it’s your first time. You’ll never be as excited to start an edutainment show as you will with this opening; Sorry Magic School Bus. Go ahead and listen:

Original TMNT 1987 cartoon intro and episodes in CG

The Nick CG show had a crossover with the original TMNT show from 1987 by Fred Wolf. In it you can see the original toon turtles in 3D and the CG turtles in 2D. It was definitely a cool episode that brought a lot of nostalgia. While the original turtles looked odd in CG, it was still neat to see them being interpreted like that. So why don’t we take a look at a remake of the original iconic opening re-done in CG?

It doesn’t quite fit the look the original turtles have on the CG Nick show since it is a much more realistic take on them. The amount of polish is amazing as everything looks so professional. It definitely misses a little bit of the mood of the show though by taking these artistic liberties. Now I don’t fault them for it but it’s worth pointing out. Oddly enough this isn’t the only time the intro has been remade in 3D.

Big Wolf on Campus intro / opening theme

 

I was about to begin my teenage years when I found Big Wolf on Campus airing which I’m sure I’ll talk about later but the opening/intro of the show really got to me. The lyrics are cheesy but I can’t help but like the song, especially how it begins with “I used to own this town..”, while a bit embarrassing I guess it just hit at the right time of my life as I made my own transition. Even now it’s as good as I remember. The quality above isn’t great, you can find the episodes with a better quality intro but I didn’t want to link to full episodes. It’s col how the “Fox Family” logo really adds to the video in nostalgia points.
