A Look at Disney: The Shreds Fell Like Snowflakes (Fillmore! Episode Review)

Enjoy this older review as a preview for what’s come to next month with A Look at Disney Investigates



Question, what do you get when a Saturday Morning cartoon series parodies police dramas and sets it in a middle school?  Answer, one of the most underrated Disney cartoon shows ever!  Fillmore,   is what you get when you take all of the tropes of crime dramas and set them in a middle school and the result, it worked   Fillmore was one of the shows that could’ve been found on the Disney ABC block, I’m not sure if it was still One Saturday Morning when this show rolled around. Either way, this show while not a popular as say Recess is still pretty good and I’ve decided to take a look at one of the episodes from season 2 for a review. Enjoy!   Oh, one last and really cool thing to bring up is that Jeff Probst,  host of Survivor had a role in this show as the vice principal.   That is so cool that the host of my favorite show was in this, I mean the guy known for doing this  and saying this was in a Disney show.

RPG Hell: Megaman Network Transmission

Log on! Shinta plugs into the Battle network game that’s technically not a battle network game which tries mixing the classic game-series’ battle elements and the Late-X-series 3D platforming into the BN’s RPG stylization!
Suffice to say, it goes badly.


Why Tom and Jerry: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory Will Suck

Direct-to-video features are to cinema what shovelware is to video games. Low-quality family fare that exists solely for companies to get enough money to pay for a cheeseburger. D2V films, especially those in the family-friendly category have become far more prevalent since the start of the 2010s, and as of late, they’ve yet to go down. Why am I starting off with this? Well, the following has the makings of a D2V disaster. Let’s count the ways

  • This has no reason to exist. This was long after the heyday of the book, the Gene Wilder version and even the Tim Burton version while we’re at it. This isn’t going to be released on the anniversary of any of the aforementioned films so it’s just something that exists for the sake of existing. For the characters, it’s doubtful the license was in danger. Warner Bros. practically owns the film they’re basing it on, so it’s not like there’s a sense of urgency, like we really need to keep these properties alive.
  • Families could just as easily let their kids watch the aforementioned two movies since they have the right appeal for them, I doubt anyone needed that Tom and Jerry edge to make things more interesting.
  • The film does little to differentiate itself from the original film. It’s just a shot-for shot re-working with Tom and Jerry thrown in for some reason. By the way…
  • Even the trailer exposes how little Tom and Jerry would have to do in the film. The main story plays out while Tom and Jerry appear in the background doing their own thing. They’re also aided by an Oompa-Loompa mouse that’s nearly the same character as the Munchkin Mouse that appeared in the Tom and Jerry/Wizard of Oz crossover (and it’s not just a coincidence, it’s nearly the same mouse only with a different outfit, even the same voice actress who’s probably wishing she ducked out of the acting industry ala Peter Ostrum (get it?))
  • The animation is unappealing, sufficed to say. It resembles the quality of the animation in earlier WB animated films like Space Jam, Looney Tunes Back in Action and the Iron Giant. I’m not talking about the quality of the films themselves, my point is that the animation shows a lack of evolution. This looks like something from the mid-late 90s that has been polished half-heartedly, and no, “stylistic choice” won’t be the film’s savior.
  • It just goes to show you how over-glorified the original film is. WB probably assumed people would enjoy this one because it follows that one film people worship, but it actually backfired.

Six’s not much, but let that show just how little substance the film will have. When you could tell what the film will be like from the trailer alone, shit’s a’brewing. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to promote the good word of the superior 2001 adaptation.

2010-2017 Whyboy

7 Years ago today (Seriously it was) I started up my YouTube channel and began working on my very first review of A Troll In Central Park. It’s a review that I retroactively despise for its poor visual quality, writing for some of my past criticisms and me clinging to the mannerisms from the Nostalgia Critic who inspired me to start. But starting this channel and review series really helped me in high school. During that time I was more or less feeling very depressed and self-conscious about myself, just letting the time pass without much care for really contributing to any overall social discussion. I was always worried whether if what I said had any worth as an opinion. Details into that thought process can be best saved for another full video on itself but starting the channel was a godsend in many ways.

Having my thoughts and feelings challenged so readily and in thankful times by really thoughtful commentators. It helped me grow a sense of worth in what I spoke and propelled me to get into more production heavy roles down the line. This included keeping up doing Cartoon Corner and attempting many other various series to challenge myself and entertain as well. I honestly don’t look at myself as a strong individual. I’m very emotional and sensitive and over the 7 years my friends, family and yes, all of you who have tuned in to watch my silly antics have helped me accept that part of me and love it.

With rolling out now I’m now starting to juggle trying to find work for ToonGrin to help sustain ourselves while also giving us the leeway to develop what me and Nero want to. To be frank it has been stressing me out to no end as I do keep such high standards for myself as that is what you, the viewers who watch our content, deserve. But I feel definitely in my 7 years of doing this YouTube and online thing I’ve gotten much better but still hope to improve every day.

I still have many anxieties when it comes to myself and my self-image on how others view me but I hope to continue improving myself and showing you through Cartoon Corner, Gaming Alley, Watchin’ Stuff, Whyboy Spotlights and whatever other property I end up producing how thankful I am for taking your time to join me in discussing and laughing at my work to you. Thank you and Have a Happy April 1st. (Seriously this isn’t an April Fool’s Joke)

RPG Hell: Persona 4 Golden part 5

Persona ends with Revelations of the true Murder, and the Identity of the one behind Inaba’s Descent into the fog-drenched depths.
…Which was kind of obvious if you know even the basics of Japanese mythology.
