MCoG Series Two!!!

17 Aug 2014 at 13:49 (Random Randomness) (, , , )

Wait! For seriously! No! How the heck did I not know about this?!! Apparently my nephew has been watching this on Kix! for some time now and I had no idea! Although I vaguely remember hearing his singing the theme and asking where he learnt it. Hmm. Only a couple of days ago he just caught the end credits and that reminded me to go looking.

See, I knew they were planning a series 2 for real this time, because was it Chalopin or Ryshpan who said the second series work was underway on the DVD interviews, but I am so seriously late to the party. I just haven’t been keeping up. Rabid Fangirl is losing her touch 😦

So as soon as I heard that the second series was out (I’m soooooo late to the party!) I had to go search on youtube. I must have read an old post that said it was only in French at the moment, so I didn’t hunt down an English version. Luckily my French is good enough to understand most of what they are saying, even if there is a big lag between hearing the words and understanding the words.

So far, it’s actually all right. I was scared they’d do an Adult Icarus and ruin everything (see NAEZ), but they’ve kept the style faithful to the original, and even kept the theme tune. I like that the voice casting (for the French version; a review says the English voice cast is pretty awful) is also faithful to the original. Zia seems less helpless in the new series and I’m not so keen on the way Esteban’s facial expressions are animated; it seems to change his character somewhat*. But overall, I’m not disappointed.

So I’ve just ordered my DVD set and I’ll do a full review when I’ve watched it!

* I remember who he reminds me of the way they’ve animated him. Ben 10 Series 1. Seriously!

Mysterious Cities of Gold Cast List

10 Oct 2008 at 22:46 (Random Randomness) (, , , )

The cast list

Whoa, it’s hard to imagine him as Esteban! All this time we were told Esteban was voiced by Adrian Knight, and he wasn’t; that was Tao. Esteban is so utterly cute I just love him!

Esteban Episode 1

I still don’t have the DVD 😦 I’m so poor!

KidKid Icarus KidKid Icarus

7 Aug 2008 at 19:18 (Kid Icarus, Random Randomness) (, )

(That’s one of the sacred words for Angel Land Story, I can’t remember what it does though. Last level, I think??)

I was watching Videolympics the other day. They are SO mean to Kid Icarus in that. Dr Wiley called him Kid Idiot and Simon Belmont called him Shrimpicus, so Kid called Simon Dopius Maximus, which is an exceptionordinarily cool insult.

(Don’t tell me I’m sad, I already know. My best friend hasn’t come to see me for a while, so I’ve no one to talk to 😥 )

kid icarus hypnotised
This is actually from Invasion of the Paper Pedlars. That’s the episode I remember watching as a kid and the one that helped me track down Captain N in the first place. Mother Brain is my master!!!! Kid has been hypnotised in this one. He’s going for Kevinicus.

Kid Icarus, you are so exceptionordinarily cute!!! He gets bashed around so much in this episode. Kid Liquorice!

Aww! Yook at him the lil duckie! He’s off to battle Medusa here, but first he must stop himself and Simonius looking at her.

My Favourite Captain N Scenes

17 Jul 2008 at 19:01 (Kid Icarus, Random Randomness) (, , )

My favourite and best scenes from Captain N – The Game Master

Episode 9 – Nightmare on Mother Brain’s Street

This has some of the best scenes :mrgreen: I don’t know, maybe you have to actually watch them for real to find them funny.

1mothermirrorMother Brain: Metroid mirror on the wall
Am I the cutest of them all?

Mirror: Princess Lana’s the cutest chick,
You’re so ugly you make me sick!

Mother Brain: What do you know, twerp! I will be the most beautiful woman in Videoland! And you, Eggplant Wizard, are going to help me do it!

Eggplant Wizard: Wh – who, me?

Mother Brain: Yes, you! You can start by making me an apple!

Eggplant Wizard:Whatever you say, Mother Bwain!
Magic words with which I grapple, make this brain a big juicy apple!

Mother Brain: You idiot! I don’t want to be an apple! I want to have an apple!

Mother Brain’s voice is the best. She’s voiced by Levi Stubbs.

Eggplant Wizard: C-c-cool off, Mother Brain, or you’ll become a baked apple!

My Favourite and my Best

12 Jul 2008 at 21:44 (Kid Icarus, Random Randomness) (, , )

Kid Icarus: Angel Land Story

This was a pretty good game. Never got all that far, I kept getting stuck on level 1-2. Kid Icarus is really called Pit.

I can’t do it. I just can’t do it 😥 This game is too hard.

Pole Posish-shu-un, what’s behind this stunt show?

Click the pic and see what happens 😉

From now on, like your parents were, you are the secret force of Pole Position!

They’re movin’ real fast, they’re the only ones
Who can get there on time
They’re never too far behind, they’re always fighting crime

Up on the curve or a face in adventure in the danger zone
Pretty soon they’ll be off on a mission, come and watch them go!

Pole Posish-shu-un! What’s behind this stunt show?

Pole Posish-shu-un! Only they’re on the road
Pole Posish-shu-un! Sit back and watch them go!

Heyo heyo heyo heyo heyo!

The 80s Quotes!

1 Nov 2007 at 21:17 (Random Randomness, Sims 2) (, , )

Full list of credits of all the lines I’ve plagiarised from 80s cartoons for Lana’s story. Big kudos to all the scriptwriters whose lines I’ve shamelessly stolen 😉

  • Ch2, Page 2: “So, you’re awake. I’m sorry if I frightened you, but they told me to keep an eye on you until you woke up. I’m Kevin. Here, take this.”

    From The Mysterious Cities of Gold. Tao to Zia: “So, you’re awake. I’m sorry if I frightened you, but I had to talk to you here, where we could be alone. Take this.”

  • Ch2, Page 3: “Why, you’re aboard The Revenant. We had to teleport you up when Loft’s henchmen tried to get you.”

    From Captain N – The Game Master. Princess Lana to Kevin: “Why you’re in Videoland. The ultimate warp zone brought you here.”

They don’t make ’em like they used to

6 Aug 2007 at 18:04 (Random Randomness) (, , , , )

They really don’t know how to make good cartoons nowadays. So here are my top 3 kids’ shows from bygone times…

1. The Mysterious Cities of Gold


This is undoubtedly the best cartoon ever made, and if you disagree with me, it means you never watched it 😉

MCoG is set in 1532 and follows Esteban, a twelve year old orphan boy from the Americas. Read the rest of this entry »
