New Years Marathons

The New Years holiday is a notorius time for TV marathons. I’ve highlighted a few of the more interesting ones here:

Spider-Man (animated series) 12/31 6:00am – 01/01 5:00pm Toon Disney
The Twilight Zone 12/31 8:00am – 01/02 6:00am Sci Fi

Fans of Warner Bros. animation should take note of the Looney Tunes marathon as they have been off the air since 2007. A full schedule can be found here.

Christmas Wishlist 2008

Buckaroo Banzai Against the World Crime League
One of my favorite movies growing up was The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the Eighth Dimension . I watched it so much that my dad started calling me Buckaroo, and still does sometimes. The end credits tease a sequel, Buckaroo Banzai Against the World Crime League, in which Banzai would face his nemesis, Hanoi Xan. But that movie was scratched after a combination of the original film’s lackluster box office performance and the production company’s subsequent bankruptcy. Next year will mark Buckaroo Banzai’s 25th anniversary, and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than finally making this sequel.

Ecto Cooler
Hi-C never should have stopped making this stuff.

Captain Kirk’s Chair
Only thing missing is a cup holder.

Ryan Industries Plasmids
Definitely telekenesis. Probably incenerate. Maybe insect swarm.

Dog DNA Identification
I can finally find out what breeds Banjo and Scout are.
