    Eddie Murphy will voice movie version of 1970s animated show “Hong Kong Phooey”

    A big screen animated feature version of Hanna-Barbera’s 1974 TV series Hong Kong Phooey has been green-lit with Eddie Murphy voicing the protagonist hero. It’s totally understandable that movie execs have been inspired by the piles of money the Smurfs movie is racking up, but let’s be honest – Phooey is no Smurfs. Sure, they were both animated TV shows produced by Barbera– but that’s where the commonalities end. The

    Ricky Gervais gets animated for “Family Guy”; Dan Castellaneta gets real for “Parks and Rec”

    Ricky Gervais, busiest (most powerful?) comedy person in the world will drop by the new season of Family Guy to voice the part of a dolphin for an episode titled, “Be Careful What You Wish For.” This is great news for us, but Gervais may be even more excited about the guest gig, since he’s a huge fan of the enormously politically incorrect animation Fox series. “Family Guy is my

    “Futurama” gets two more seasons at Comedy Central

    Comedy Central has renewed Futurama for two more full seasons, show creator David X. Cohen told an excited audience at Comic-Con in San Diego this weekend. “The mood is better now,” he said, adding “the pressure’s off now that we’re in our second life – we didn’t expect to be back.” The Emmy-nominated animated series faced erratic airings; a known method used by the show’s former broadcaster, Fox to slowly

    Although no official premiere date has been announced — we just know it’s going down this Fall — we finally got a first peek at the rebooted Beavis and Butt-Head. And it is good.

    New South Park video game coming to Xbox

    I’m dating myself, but I remember when the original South Park video game came out on Nintendo 64. That game was hard as hell. Or maybe I just gave up too quickly. Difficult to say. As frustrating as that game was, I’m optimistic about a new South Park video game venture coming to Xbox 360. Microsoft has just signed a deal for an exclusive game based on the series, according

    Futurama premieres tonight; watch a behind the scenes video!

    Pretty much every kid grows up idolizing some cartoon. My own loyalties lay with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Ghostbusters before the magical world of Nickelodeon, The Simpsons, South Park – you know, the new classics. What’s always baffled me, though, is how those cartoons actually get made, especially since we’ve clearly moved away from the flipbook draw-every-single-cell method in the good old days of Disney and Looney Tunes. And

    Video: "South Park" takes on the over medication of our youth (again)

    It looks like the folks at South Park are taking on the idea that medicating our youth — instead of talking to them and teaching them right from wrong once again — is the way to go in these modern times. It’s a topic they handled with their signature satire back in season four. Let’s check out a clip from tonight’s new episode (10 pm EST on Comedy Central), featuring
