tazmania cartoon

    Taz-Mania is a cartoon show produced by Warner Bros. Animation from 1991–1993, broadcast in the United States on Fox from 1991-1995. The show follows the adventures of the classic Looney Tunes character, Taz (The Tasmanian Devil) in the fictional land of Tazmania (based on Tasmania).
    Similar to its other sister WB cartoons of its time, such as Animaniacs and Tiny Toon Adventures, Taz-Mania frequently broke the fourth wall, and often made jokes showing that Taz could actually speak perfectly normally when he wanted to. The intro indicates that, in this rendering of Tasmania, "the sky's always yellow, rain or shine". The title song is performed by Jess Harnell and Jim Cummings.

    That popular Tasmanian Devil that we all know as Taz is sitting at home one day listening to a family

    member tell a compelling story about how the land of Tazmania was once ruled by giant prehistoric seabirds. We all know that Taz is among the biggest of fans of eating almost everything in sight and upon hearing the story, he just can't wait to run, or spin, as fast as he can out the door to find one of these giant eggs to greedily satisfy his ever-growing hunger.

    Back when I had just received a Sega Genesis for Christmas and still didn't have any games other than the great Sonic The Hedgehog, I remember seeing a certain commercial of Taz-Mania countless times on TV. Its graphics were unbelievable, it looked a

    lot like a real cartoon, and I absolutely had to have it! I bought it the first chance I got with my own money.

    All the adventures of Taz-Mania take place in Tasmania, the island country that's right off the south eastern coast of Australia. There are several different kinds of terrain and climates that Taz must venture through en route to finding and seizing his luxurious snack. Not-so-deserted deserts with quicksand that will eat anything stuck inside, frozen landscapes packed with slippery ground and water that can freeze a Tasmanian Devil to death in seconds, and hyperactive jungles with steep, deadly cliffs are only a few of the places that Taz must get past in this action-packed 2-D platformer.

    The gameplay is just like that of the typical platformer, for the most part. While making your way through the various landscapes, you'll be doing a lot of jumping from platform to platform, collecting items for energy and extra lives, and so on. Of course, you can get rid of certain adversaries by jumping on top of their heads, but Taz's main nemesis-defeating tactic will be to use his whirling attack in which he literally spins so fast that he looks like a real-life tornado. There are, however, a few fun parts to experience in Taz-Mania. You'll have to ride an underground mine cart and use a switch to make the cart 'stand up', so to speak, to avoid crashing into stationary parts of the tracks that are in the way. In the ice level, you can stand on floating pieces of ice and they will instantly sink from your overbearing weight. Most of the time, this will result in your touching the below zero temperatures of the water and literally being frozen into an ice cube if you stand on it too long, but stand on one certain chunk of floating ice and you won't fall into the water. Instead, Taz will fall through a hole and instantly be underground amongst a bunch of tasty, energizing foods, and maybe even an extra life or two. I like that.Source URL: http://rabid-smurf.blogspot.com/2011_11_01_archive.html

    The Tasmanian devil (Sarcophilus harrisii) is a carnivorous marsupial of the family Dasyuridae, now found in the wild only on the Australian island state of Tasmania. The size of a small dog, it became the largest carnivorous marsupial in the world following the extinction of the thylacine in 1936. It is characterised by its stocky and muscular build, black fur, pungent odour, extremely loud and disturbing screech, keen sense of smell, and ferocity when feeding. The Tasmanian devil's large head and neck allow it to generate the strongest bite per unit body mass of any living mammal, and it hunts prey and scavenges carrion as well as eating household products if humans are living nearby. Although it is usually solitary, it sometimes eats with other devils and defecates in a communal location. Unlike most other dasyurids, the devil thermoregulates effectively and is active during the middle of the day without overheating. Despite its rotund appearance, the devil is capable of surprising speed and endurance, and can climb trees and swim across rivers.

    t is believed that ancient marsupials migrated from what is now South America to Australia tens of millions of years ago during the time of Gondwana, and that they evolved as Australia became more arid. Fossils of species similar to modern devils have been found, but it is not known whether they were ancestors of the contemporary species, or whether the current devils co-existed with these species. The date that the Tasmanian devil disappeared from the Australian mainland is unclear; most evidence suggests they had contracted to three relict populations around 3000 years ago. A tooth found in Augusta, Western Australia has been dated to 430 years ago, but archaeologist Oliver Brown disputes this and considers the devil's mainland extinction to have occurred around 3000 years ago.[2] This disappearance is usually blamed on dingoes, which are absent from Tasmania. Because they were seen as a threat to livestock and animals that humans hunted for fur in Tasmania, devils were hunted and became endangered. In 1941, the devils, which were originally seen as implacably vicious, became officially protected. Since then, scientists have contended that earlier concerns that the devils were the most significant threat to livestock were overestimated and misplaced.

    Devils are not monogamous, and their reproductive process is very robust and competitive. Males fight one another for the females, and then guard their partners to prevent female infidelity. Females can ovulate three times in as many weeks during the mating season, and 80% of two-year-old females are seen to be pregnant during the annual mating season. Females average four breeding seasons in their life and give birth to 20–30 live young after three weeks' gestation. The newborn are pink, lack fur, have indistinct facial features and weigh around 0.20 g (0.0071 oz) at birth. As there are only four nipples in the pouch, competition is fierce and few newborns survive. The young grow rapidly and are ejected from the pouch after around 100 days, weighing roughly 200 g (7.1 oz). The young become independent after around nine months, so the female spends most of her year in activities related to childbirth and rearing.

    Since the late 1990s, devil facial tumour disease has drastically reduced the devil population and now threatens the survival of the species, which in 2008 was declared to be endangered. Programs are currently being undertaken by the Government of Tasmania to reduce the impact of the disease, including an initiative to build up a group of healthy devils in captivity, isolated from the disease. While the thylacine was extant it preyed on the devil, which targeted young and unattended thylacine cubs in their dens. Nowadays, the devil is also preyed upon by the illegally introduced red fox, and localised populations of devils have also been severely reduced by collisions with motor vehicles, particularly when they are eating roadkill themselves.Source URL: http://rabid-smurf.blogspot.com/2011_11_01_archive.html

    Do you know Doraemon? yeach, it’s comic character created by Fujiko F. Fujiya (if i’m not mistaken), Japan’s comic writer.
    I read this comic since I was 10 years-old.
    As you know, Doraemon is a story with no ending, but this small story is about the “last episode” of the famous cartoon.
    Someone made this story (finally I know the name, Nobuo Sato) and uploaded it to his homepage, and it is now widely spread all around Japan through the internet.
    Here it goes. Happy reading :)

    One day,a very normal day, Nobita came back from school and went upstairs of his house. Doraemon was there sleeping, just like the other normal day.
    “Hey, Doraemon, please wake up, lets play!” but Doraemon does not wake up.
    Nobita thought that Doraemon is tired, so he went out to play with Shizuka-chan and other folks. After few hours, he returned to his home, but Doraemon was still sleeping. Nobita felt something strange, and tried to wake him up. But there was no reply. He became to feel afraid, and tried to wake him up, but whatever he does, Doraemon did not wake up.

    “I mean, if I replace his battery, every memory of you will be eternally lost from his brain program”.
    “WHAT?????”
    “Shall I do that?”
    Nobita closed his eyes. He cried, but after few minutes, he stopped crying,and quietly told Dorami-chan.
    “Dorami-chan, thanks for coming here. I will take care of the rest. You have to go back to your future time now”.
    Dorami-chan could not decide what to do, but anyway she hugged Nobita quietly, and she went back home. After she went back,Nobita carried Doraemon and placed him into the shelf.

    Year 2010, Nobita grew up. Since that day, he changed.
    He studied hard, did not cry anymore, and he lived without Doraemon. He told Shizuka and other folks that Doraemon had to go back to his future, and could not meet him anymore. Shizuka was impressed to Nobita’s mysterious appearance which became completely different from 10years ago.
    They fell in love, and married. Nobita became a scientist. He made a laboratory in his room, and was studying hard with his job all day. He told Shizuka not to come into the room, as it is very dangerous inside.
    But one day, he called Shizuka and told her to come in to his room. It was the first time for her to enter her husband’s room. The moment she went in, she lost her words.

    Nobita exactly knew that something was different. This never happened before. He began crying, but though he screamed or cried, the famous fat-cat-robot did not make a single move at all. He came up to one idea, and jumped into his desk-the time machine-and went to the future to meet Dorami-chan, Doraemon’s sister. He begged her for help, and forced her to go with him back to 1998.
    After a short trip again back to 1998 by the time machine, Dorami-chan looked all over his brother Doraemon to see what was wrong with him.
    After few minutes, she said “the battery is out”. Nobita was relieved, and said,”battery? so he is not broken right? please replace or recharge his battery, and put him back like before”.
    But Dorami-chan shook her head and said,”Nobita-san, should I really do that?”.
    Nobita said “what? what do you mean?” Dorami-chan replied; “His main battery is here, close to his pocket. And it ran out. But originally, he had a back-up battery in his ears, but as you know, his ears were eaten by a rat very many years ago, so he does not have a back-up battery now”.
    “so what do you mean?”.Source URL: http://rabid-smurf.blogspot.com/2011_11_01_archive.html

smurf figurines

    McDonald's gave us these cool Smurf collectible figurines in conjunction with the live-action "The Smurfs" movie. You know, the one that stars Neil Patrick Harris aka Doogie Howser. I haven't seen the movie yet but I was mighty tempted to get the Jakks Pacific Smurfs figurines. They were pretty costly so when I heard that McDonald's Malaysia was finally bringing in their Smurfs collectible figurines, I was relieved! These 10 figurines were supposed to be sold according to their weekly schedules but it wasn't to be...

    The first 3 figurines were sold to the public without any hiccup and most collectors had assumed that McDonald's was gonna stick to their schedule, so there's absolutely no need to push and shove to get these figurines folks! And then, the unthinkable happened. By the time the second batch were sold, they announced that they were already selling figurines from the LAST batch simply because people were clamouring for these collectibles and McDonald's outlets weren't able to cope with the demand. I was lucky as my dear wife went 'hunting' for these figurines at different McDonald's outlets while I was at work. Without her assistance I definitely won't be able to complete the lineup!

    Last I heard, Smurfette and Papa Smurf were the hardest to get, presumably of the lower quantity produced (or something). A quick check on eVilbay shows that each of these two can fetch up to RM30 (or approx USD10) already! Daylight robbery!!!

    Scalper ahoy! Here is a quick snapshot I took a couple of days ago of a suspected scalper at the McDonald's outlet near my place. For the record, he took ALL of the remaining stock left at the outlet. The picture below does not do him justice at all. He eventually left the outlet with one bulging plastic bag with his loot...and a smirk on his face! So guys, let's do ourselves a favour and NOT buy any of the overpriced Smurfs collectible on eVilbay....Source URL: http://rabid-smurf.blogspot.com/2011_11_01_archive.html
