chalkboard post 2010 – #14

I was going to do an all X-Men themed week until I realized that I didn’t know how any of the other X-Men look! I know how they looked back in the 1990’s when the cartoon was on TV… but I don’t have a clue now! I think I’m going to do a Fantastic Four themed week, starting tomorrow… they’re a bit more consistent in their fashion choices.

November 3oth is Mark Twain’s birthday.

I was falsely under the impression that CBS was airing Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer this past Thursday. I was wrong.

I was kind of impressed that most of my students knew who this was. Of course, I suppose we’re not too far removed from a time when Cartoon Network showed old cartoons like Space Ghost… and true, most kids recognized him from Space Ghost: Coast to Coast… but still, with how quickly  pop culture moves these days, I wouldn’t have been surprised if he had been forgotten.

FREE IDEA: Hanna Barbera should do a new version of Space Ghost a la Batman: The Animated Series, where they treat the character seriously. I know Space Ghost was never all that serious, even in the ’60’s and ’70’s, but it’s SUCH a great Alex Toth designed costume. I’d love to see the character lavishly animated someday.
