Oswald Reviews: The Super Mario Brothers Super Show


Unlike Bubsy and Battletoads, The Super Mario Brothers Super Show actually was picked up for a full cartoon. I actually remember watching this as a kid. I actually really liked to pick up a copy of the show from Blockbuster. It was something I really enjoyed as a kid. Does it hold up? Well, let’s see.

Oswald Reviews: Battletoads (Television Pilot)


Battletoads is known by many gamers as a fun co-operative beat-em-up. I actually have never played it, as I didn’t get a Nintendo Entertainment System until I was twelve. I only own a couple games on the system, Battletoads not being one of them. Thus, I am not exactly familiar with the classic game.

Just like Bubsy, Battletoads had a cartoon television pilot that never aired. Could this one be as bad as Bubsy, or have I finally found something worth watching? Let’s see.

Oswald Reviews: LarryBoy and the Bad Apple (PS2)


Veggietales was an odd idea for a kids show. Whoever said that mixing talking vegetables with Christian Bible stories was a good idea is certainly on some kind of drug. All jokes aside, Veggietales was an interesting, silly take on parables and Scripture tales that a lot of kids enjoyed. Even if you’re not Christian, the show still teaches valuable lessons on how to deal with bullies and growing up. There was one problem I had with the show (besides the stupid idea): the video games.

These games were always bad. Even as a kid, while I still enjoyed them, I always wanted to give up on them. I didn’t remember why until I brought out the old consoles. The one that caught my eye was the Playstation 2 and my dusty copy of LarryBoy and the Bad Apple. Was this game as silly and fun as the show, or does this bad apple go straight to the garbage can? Let’s see.

Oswald Music Reviews: Part of Your World


An actual music review! I’ve been meaning to do another one of these for a while now, and what better time to do it than now?

Disney has always been the king of animated musicals. It’s just their thing. The beautiful melodies that have come from the brilliant minds of people like the Sherman Brothers, Alan Menken, and Tim Rice have always enchanted us. It gives Disney that extra bit of magic. So without further ado, let’s review Part of Your World!

Oswald Reviews: The Lorax (1972)


So let’s start out Dr. Seuss Summer with my favorite story, The Lorax!

No, I’m not talking about the 2012 film (I’ll save that for later). I’m talking about the classic animated short.

This is a short that nearly everyone has watched. It’s a classic. It’s a good cautionary tale about keeping the environment clean and a safe place to be. Is it carrying out that message? Let’s see.
