I watched this like 120 times as a kid and once recently as a adult. It holds up 100% Tiny Toons was a real treat.

My little random crap though is there's a pretty amazing Warhammer battle report channel that's run out of Vancouver, BC. They do incredibly well edited batreps with top notch terrain and beautifully painted models. The asthetics are on point. Except that one of the guys has grown this absolutely disgusting beard. It's so thin and wispy and awful. Jeez. Can you guess from the thumbnail who I'm talking about? I hate looking at it. The channels videos are awesome though for people into this sort of thing.

I assume that's a Phantom reference? I've read the comic but never seen the films (or show, I guess?).
I will say I've seen The Shadow, though. In the theater, even. Oof.

I'm not sure if the chant in question actually existed in Phantom canon before he was featured as one of the Defenders of the Earth.
I remember the series, I just never watched it. Mostly what I remember it for is the idea that someone would make an 80's animated show for children based around WW2-era adventure newspaper comic characters.

And I say this even though Mandrake was probably my favorite newspaper comic in 80's prior to the emergence of Far Side, C&H, etc.

You know that thing where you look up someone whose work you enjoy only to find out that they were in some way awful? Well against my better judgement I just looked up Edward Gorey, and you know what? He seems just as cool as one might hope. My favorite bit on Wikipedia is this quote about his sexuality (he apparently never dated or expressed interest in romance):
I'm neither one thing nor the other particularly. I am fortunate in that I am apparently reasonably undersexed or something ... I've never said that I was gay and I've never said that I wasn't ... what I'm trying to say is that I am a person before I am anything else ... Well, I'm neither one thing nor the other particularly. I suppose I'm gay. But I don't identify with it much.
