At Long Last, New Gifts from the Hayfamzone!
I used to make a regular practice of sharing with you some of the wonderful comics-related websites and the like that I would find. For example, I reported a couple of years back how I had come across Fox and Crow cartoons posted on YouTube (and none of which I had previousy seen, so I figured they might be new to others also). I now have an UPDATE for you on that item!
This morning I was looking around for some cartoons on broadcast television and I found some. I came across a "syndicated network" called Antenna TV and you can find out on their website if they are available on a channel in your town. Why would you care? Well, this morning that channel was running an animation anthology show entitled Totally Tooned In and it's clear to me that once in a while this show plays Fox and Crow cartoons and even Tito and his Burrito cartoons! (And yes, in case you were wondering, I will be offering my copy of Real Screen Funnies #1 over on ebay at some point in the not-too-distant future.)
Now in case Antenna TV is not available in your neck of the woods, I still have good news for you! There is a Totally Tooned In website and you can choose from a long menu of cartoons to download and watch. I saw in the list a couple of Jill Thompson's Scary Godmother cartoons ready to download.
Keep in mind that all of the foregoing was merely the update to my old gift. I'm not through with you yet!
Maybe you're a comics news junkie like I am and maybe you check in every day like I do to see any new developments in the world of comics. Well, I've learned of a site on par with Newsarama and, every time I look there, I see an item that Newsarama has not yet told me about! I understand that the site used to be directed at retailers but these days it is perfectly accessible to fans like you and me. Please take a look at and enjoy icv2 .
