I love Transformers, the generation 1 cartoon series have this retro feel over it plus I use to have a nice TF toy collection that I’ve fond memories of play with. The connection is that both characters have Frank Welker as their voice.
Super genie Jafar’s You’re Only Second Rate reached the eight spot in Nails105’s personal top 10 Animated Villian Songs over at RetroJunk. It stands proudly along the likes of Be Prepard, Gaston and Poor Unfortunate Souls. Have you seen Transformers: The Movie? Talk about a good villian Unicon is a planet-size robot that feeds on other planets. The Unicron score is so good. Watch it!
I’m suprised, Return of Jafar isn’t exactly Disney’s best sequel it compared to Aladdin it’s a shallow shell of course but set it besides Bambi 2 or Tarzan 2 RoJ lacks animaton quality and the story could’ve been better too. As for the songs they’re all forgettable except the love duet Forget About Me which quite nice.
The batch of Disney calenders for next are out let us see what Disney has to offer their fans for 2009, and if we Aladdin fans be satifised with fresh Jasmine artwork.
Like every year there’s the usual Mickey and Pooh Bear calenders then there’s Pixar strongly represendet with Wall-E, Cars and general calenders, Tink and friends are good for another 7 different calenders and then there are the stupid Disney Channel stars calenders that most people probably will ignore.
So how about that Jasmine artwork, even Jafar as part of the Disney Villian line-up will do. Sadly Disney dissapoints us Jafar is in that horrible stock art pose he’s been in for years and as for Princess Jas…
…well she gets the new hot Disneyland based outfit she’s been spotted in recently. But she’s still in the same 2 horrible poses she’s doing since forever. In fact all the Princesses are yet again in the standard poses the girls have been on practilly everything. Way to go Disney, just throw in a new dress and let the money roll in. So strike through a Princess calender wish on your Christmas list they’re not worth the money.
Disney does have 3 beautiful classic character calenders in 2009 that are a good alternative.
First a Bambi 2009 Wall Calender uses old promotional artwork. Next Disney’s Musical Moments 2009 Mini Wall Calendar uses retro posters or they might be LP artwork from oldies like Snow White, Jungle Book and Alice. Key scenes from Sleeping Beauty are in Sleeping Beauty 2009 Mini Wall Calendar.
Personally I would love to have that Bambi calender myself. Or if you want Calender.com sells a surplus of other cartoon calenders ranging from Tom & Jerry to old Hanna-Barbara toons like The Flintstones and The Jetsons personally I love the 2009 Transformers calender
