Daily Heroine: Kallan James

Today’s Daily Heroine is: Captain Kallan James from the 80s TV animation titled Thunderbirds 2086 (known as Scientific Rescue Team Technoboyager in Japan). As you might be able to guess, Thunderbirds 2086 is loosely based on Gerry Anderson’s well-known Thunderbirds TV show. It aired during school hours in my city, so I only ever got to see one episode as a kid, but I do remember really liking it; especially since, unlike the original Thunderbirds, it featured a female member. And a pretty one at that!๐Ÿ˜€ Unfortunately, I cannot be certain who voiced Kallan, because cartoons from that era are woefully vague when it comes to the voice cast, but in the Japanese version (where, incidentally, she went by the name Catherine Hayward) she was voiced by Manami Ito.

I’m always on the look out for new interesting and likeable heroines, so if you have a particular favourite, please tell me about her! Till tomorrow, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you.๐Ÿ˜Š

Daily Heroine: Penny (Gadget)

Today’s Daily Heroine is: Penny from the 80s cartoon Inspector Gadget, who was first voiced by the amazing Cree Summer (credited as Cree Summer Francks). Fans sometimes refer to her as Penny Gadget, but I don’t think that has ever been given as her real name, at least in the cartoons. Penny is without a doubt my number one animated girl and if, as a kid, I could’ve married her, I would have. She is cute, intelligent and brave, plus she is extremely selfless: she lets her bumbling uncle take credit for the crimes she solves. Of course, as a kid, she would probably get into trouble for meddling with criminal matters, so it is probably just as well her exploits remain a secret.๐Ÿ˜

I’m always on the look out for new interesting and likeable heroines, so if you have a particular favourite, please tell me about her! Till tomorrow, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you.๐Ÿ˜Š

Ahsoka “Rebels” Compilation Clip Released!

For the most part, I donโ€™t like the direction Disney has taken Star Wars, my once dearest franchise. But I was happy that Disney XD put out this compilation on YouTube of what I assume are all of Ahsoka Tanoโ€™s scenes in Rebels (Disneyโ€™s Star Wars animated series that ended last year). As a big fan of Ahsoka, Iโ€™ve always been curious as to what she did on Rebels, but I had no desire to trudge through four seasons of it just to see mere glimpses of her here and there. I found this particular compilation to be quite entertaining, despite the fact that in my opinion the character models and animation in Rebels are inferior to those in Star Wars: The Clone Wars (from 2008). I guess it was simply great to see Ahsoka in action again.๐Ÿ˜

Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!๐Ÿ˜Š

My Thoughts On: โ€œBumblebeeโ€

Bumblebee, the latest film in the Transformers‘ franchise, has been out for a few days now. I myself actually went to see it about a week and a half ago, thanks again to one of my local cinemas having had advance screenings. But the fact that it’s taken me this long to write this post probably makes it obvious how I feel about this film; I didn’t like it. If you want to know why, read on. As always, there won’t be any major spoilers.
