If you’re a fan of the Disney cartoon Phineas and Ferb, like I know I am, you may have recognized the performer of the song for latest episode “Steampunx”. It was chap-hop impresario himself, Professor Elemental, taking his gentlemanly beats to a new and young audience. By way of the electric-type wireless, yr. obt. svt. was able to sit the Professor down for a virtual cup of tea and a few questions about his foray into animated entertainment.
How did you and the folks from P&F get together? Who sought out whom? A lovely exec at Disney got in touch with me and from there I got to chatting with Dan “Swampy” Marsh (co-creator of the show) who kindly asked me along for the ride.
How long ago did this alliance come about, and how long have you been sitting on the surprise? - It was about this »

While we anxiously await any news about Star Wars: Episode VII, something unexpected has arrived from left field. The Brand Licensing Europe Expo is currently under way in Olympia, London, and Jedi News has gotten their hands on the brochure handed out to attendees by Lucasfilm, which reveals that Disney is planning multiple Darth Vader Themed TV Specials for 2014.

Vincent Martella was one of the newest "The Walking Dead" cast additions for Season 4, but viewers discovered during the premiere episode, "30 Days Without An Accident," that the "Phineas and Ferb" star's character arc was very short-lived. But Martella's Patrick was arguably the most significant new addition in the first episode of Season 4, as it was through Patrick that viewers were introduced to the survivors' newest threat.
Patrick's death and subsequent turn into a walker was caused by a mysterious fast-moving illness that was also seen affecting Rick's pigs and a wild boar. Though little is known about the disease, Martella tells Zap2it that he was excited that his character was the one to highlight its danger.
"[The producers] gave me the episode and they talked to me about the kind of impact that my character was going to have and the significance it was going to have to the entire group of survivors, »
“Family Guy” is generally a hit-or-miss proposition with viewers — they either love its anything-goes humor, and the frequent non sequiturs and lengthy asides which inform it, or they view it as tiresome. For this viewer, the truth is a bit greyer and somewhere in the middle. The fact is, however, that Seth MacFarlane’s show has definitely taken a qualitative dip over the past couple seasons, with its creator heading off to host the Oscars, do movies and focus on developing other shows. Characters (never particularly its strong point to begin with) have fallen back into lapsed habits, and the sense of some moored world, no matter heightened and absurd, [ Read More ]

There are going to be a lot of familiar faces on "The Walking Dead" in Season 4, and a few of them are introduced in the latest trailer for the show. Following Rick's decision to incorporate the survivors at Woodbury into his group, many new characters will be integrated into the band at the Prison, for better or for worse.
While trailers for the upcoming season show hordes of walkers getting into the Prison's cell blocks, there's a foreboding sense that they aren't the only evil Rick's group is going to face in Season 4. There seems to be a very good likelihood that there is at least one person who isn't quite what they seem among the new members of the Prison crew.
Among the new faces in this trailer is that of Larry Gilliard Jr., who plays new character Bob Stookey. He was recently teased in the new photos released for the Season 4 premiere. »
Kingdom Hearts III was announced at E3 2013 during the Sony press conference to much whooping and cheering by the crowd. Kingdom Hearts is a beloved series, which has many devoted fans (myself included) because of its charm and complexity. It is such an endearing game franchise, because it seems like it shouldn’t be happening. I have to pinch myself every time a new instalment is announced just to make sure it is real.
Final Fantasy meets Disney in a cutesy but incredibly dark universe? Whoever first dreamed up the concept must have seemed mad and also deserves a medal (or his own keyblade).
For those who haven’t played Kingdom Hearts, it is a series that follows Sora, a boy who comes from a remote island and is mixed up in a quest to save the universe and become a Keyblade Master by jumping from world to world and »

Beginning tomorrow afternoon and every Thursday thereafter, ComicMix will run a video podcast featuring twin 11 year-olds Maddy and Anya Ernst. The San Diego sisters will discuss their most favorite (and sometimes their least favorite) aspects of pop culture.
The girls come by their expertise naturally. Anya was named Anyanka in utero by her mother, Jen, after the character on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Madeline, Maddy for short, was named after the French children’s book character. They love The Hunger Games (and their Katniss Barbie doll), Doctor Who, and My Little Pony. Less nerdy, they also adore musical theater, drag queens and Disneyland.
“Maddy and Anya represent the very next generation of fandom, and they do it with wit, style and tremendous enthusiasm,” ComicMix editor-in-chief Mike Gold babbled. I couldn’t be more excited about having them join our ComicMix team.”

This summer is was announced that Disney would being introducing the Star Wars universe into the world of the kids animated series Phineas and Ferb. We now have our first look at the storyboard art from Kyle Menke for the episode they are developing.
Series creators Dan Povenmire and Jeff "Swampy" Marsh previously offered some details on the crossover, saying,
"All of [the plot of A New Hope] happens exactly the way it did, but we find out that Phineas and Ferb are Luke’s neighbors on Tatooine and become embroiled in the adventure. Our story all takes place as if you had a slightly wider shot, you could see our characters. Or if you just waited around five minutes after this [Star Wars] storyline, our characters would pass through, which was really really fun to do."
They went on to talk about the the voices of the Star Wars characters, saying,
