In this episode Dragonpiece and I get you caught up on the latest animation news and then we head right into a discussion of Planet Sheen. If we learned anything from recording this episode it’s, we are better off with at least three critics and Dragonpiece and I need to do a better job checking our facts and by that I mean we need to check our facts period (you can see our mistakes after the jump). As always we hope you enjoy this week’s episode of Not Another Old Cartoon Podcast

While all things old are made new again when they reach vintage status there is has not been a astonishing amount of remakes of cartoons and franchises from the 1960s and 1970s or years prior other than a few notable exceptions such as Scooby-Doo which is constantly refreshed along with a few other timeless cartoon franchises. You do not often see remakes of action cartoons from the sixties or seventies for instance. The eighties on the hand just keeps coming back. Transformers like Scooby-Doo get more or less constant refreshes but even beyond that several other eighties series seem to keep coming back into style with vintage centered merchandise, DVD releases and modern re-imaginings.
