In an effort to prove that good cartoons are not dead, I have started on a quest to find the best little gems hiding in the cracks of the internet. I plan on presenting my findings in a fun little article called Hump Day Cartoons.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Nickelodeon Figures Review

This is good for all of us who love those shelled heroes. YouTube user peaugh has a special review of the new line action figures and I have to say it’s quite favorable.

Tron Meets Ice-T in ‘Colors of Tron’ Mashup

The Culternauts show us the brutal reality of the Grid in their mashup video ‘Colors or Tron’. It’s a clever mix of Ice-T’s hip-hop classic track ‘Colors’ and some well timed scenes from Tron. Who knew the Grid could be so gangsta…werd.

Why Overexposed is the Worst Maroon 5 Album

Hump Day Cartoons: Crack the Code

In an effort to prove that good cartoons are not dead, I have started on a quest to find the best little gems hiding in the cracks of the internet. I plan on presenting my findings in a fun little article called Hump Day Cartoons.

Today we will be taking a look at two very different short films. The first is a look into the secret world of the the Thomas Beale Cipher from Andrew Allen and his team. This short sees a marriage of many different animation styles, and is a must see for sure. See if you can spot the hidden clues and crack the code!  Second we have a fun cg animation about how hard it can be to get up in the morning entitled Alarm from the team MESAI in South Korea.

As always, sit back and enjoy!
