A video classic is a video that remained on my mind for whatever reason or maybe a new video I really enjoyed.

3 French Cartoon Openings / Intros

When cartoons get dubbed they normally change the lyrics to the opening songs as well. Today sounds like a good day to take a look at three different cartoons and their respective french intros that they had. You’ll also find the lyrics below each video as well as a translation to the lyrics in case you want to follow along and practice your French.

Tortues Ninja (Générique TV – FR 1987)

The original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Cartoon opening
is really quite something, while using the same beat of the original and animation the lyrics take a whole different spin that tells a slightly different take on them and finding more similarities with the Mirage comics version of the TMNT than the more kid friendly cartoon would have. They’re avenging Splinter against their fatal enemy the Shredder, they are authoritarian and make the law, the turtles are “hellish” and Kowabunga is not a catchphrase but their battle cry. Jeeze, the opening makes me want to check this interpretation of the show instead of just the regular old cartoon.

Jurassic Park Fast-Food

Jurassic Park is one of the most famous franchises out there with kids and adults and yet it never really got an amazing fast food promotion but at the very least it has gotten some fast food love along side with some decent promotions and nice commercials to go along with them so let’s take a look at them.

McDonalds had the rights for Jurassic Park when the original movie came out however they couldn’t really get figures made for the Happy Meal since they had just gotten off from the controversy of making toys for the PG-13 movie Batman returns so they had a policy of no toys for movies rated above PG. They made up by having Dino Sized value meals which were a big hit and eventually became standard even though they weren’t originally meant to stay.

Inspector Gadget Cartoon intros / Openings Collection

Inspector Gadget is one of those weird franchises that has quietly had a few shows through out the decades without anyone really noticing them, in fact a lot of these shows I didn’t even know existed. Let’s take a loot at the theme songs of all these shows, since we know that the original show had the now classic opening theme and see if any of the future shows were able to match it.

do u liek Mudkipz

Time can pass really quickly and here is one such example; Ten years ago “do u liek mudkips” was one of the most popular copypasta’s at 4chan. It felt fresh and so stupid that it was awesome, also back then there weren’t as many nostalgia ridden Pokemon fans which made the whole atmosphere better, besides the original copypasta which is below one other great thing it brought us was this song:

Magic School Bus The Movie Live Action Compilation

We have a new Magic School Bus cartoon but what we never had was a live action movie. Thankfully the internet has got us covered in this respect so why don’t we take a look at some live action parodies of The Magic School Bus.

The first one we have is a few years old but easily the best one as it really was able to pack every reference in and bits of personality of each student into the short 2 minute trailer without it feeling forced. This is a movie I would stay up for the midnight showing and cosplay to while listening to the opening of the show.

Banjo Kazooie’s Find the Magic Puzzle Puzzle Piece Keebler Contest

Banjo-Kazooie was a game that wasn’t in my radar and yet when it came out I knew I had to have it. It wasn’t just me as we saw that this franchise is still fondly remembered. I remember getting copy of the game at Best Buy and the last bonus gift which was the soundtrack and a t-shirt, it was all pure luck too since i had no idea it was even a thing until I got into the store. Anywho, the game was the hit of the summer and Keebler was there just in time to take advantage of this.

Find the Magic Puzzle Piece with Banjo-Kazooie was a contest that Keebler cookies had where you could win a bunch of Nintendo swag just by getting lucky and eating cookies. I loved this commercial and it took me years before I was finally able to find it. The best part they even shrunk the commercial into magazines as I remember reading the ads on magazines like Disney Adventures Continue reading Banjo Kazooie’s Find the Magic Puzzle Puzzle Piece Keebler Contest
