So, I’m bored & I love “Batman The Brave & Bold” so I figured “what the hell” and wrote a review of a recent episode I enjoyed.  Now note, this particular episode has yet to air in the US but it’s  available to download from iTunes, Zune, PSN, & (more…)


Don’s Blog: Super Hero Summer Movie Preview

Posted: April 30, 2011 by doneast in Uncategorized

Summer is almost here and with that we have a new crop of summer blockbusters. Three certain movies coming out all are the big screen debuts of long time comic book heroes: Thor in May, Green Lantern in June, and Captain America in July along with a new X-Men movie also in June. That’s four super hero blockbusters in the making and with that I’m gonna take a quick look at them.


So, 2010 is over and with that another year of memories of days gone by both good and bad.  And there were some new cartoons and well, Sketch & RaccattackForce aren’t the only one that can do retrospectives here so here is Don East’s 2010 in review!

Note: I didn’t watch GI Joe Renegades, the Avengers, & My Little Ponies Friendship Is Magic so I won’t talk about them.  And despite temptation, I’m only talking about Western Animation, not Anime.  Panty & Stocking, consider yourselves lucky for now.

Merry Christmas everyone, sorry I haven’t been posting that much.  A combination of Anime Abomination, college finals, and getting ready for the holiday season (along with getting into Doctor Who) put a dent in my writing.  But since it is Christmas, I really should post at least something related to the holiday so here’s some SimonXNia under the mistletoe.

Aww... Cute couple aren't they?

On the behalf of the Real Scratch Pad, have a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year.

Don’s Blog: My Anime Picks

Well, I wanted to do an article on “Scooby Doo: Mystery INC.” before the show resumes this Monday but apparently the boss wants me to do some anime article.  For those of you who don’t know who I am, along with posting on this blog, I also run a semi-sort-of-successful cult classic-like anime review series. (GO WATCH)  And up to this point I hardly ever talked about anime since well I just use my show as an OP/ED when it came to anime from time to time.  I want to use the Scratch Pad as a way to vent out my thoughts on other fields besides just anime.  But if I have to do this, fine, the Anime Abomination guy will tell you what I think you should watch.


I love giant robots, I mean who doesn’t, they’re awesome.  Now I also loved Samurai Jack, in fact I consider the greatest show on Toonami.  Now a few months ago I heard about a show coming to Cartoon Network called Sym-Bionic Titan… I had absolutely no clue what it was.  In fact, I thought it was just some bland acquisition like Metajets.  Boy was I wrong, so very, very, wrong.  Instead, Sym-Bionic Titan is a new series created by Genndy Tartakovsky in his first project the Cartoon Network since the Star Wars Clone Wars.  (And I mean the minisodes not the series.  You know the good one)  So, will this Clash of the Titans or the remake of Clash of the Titans?  Only one way to find out…

Oh and by the way, there are spoilers for the first episode in this review so consider yourself warned.


Eh, What The Hell, Doc?
