Seriously Geeky Sundays: Animation

From whimsical Saturday morning cartoons to brilliant sarcasm in adult situations, animated entertainment comes in so many forms that can appeal to many audiences!

Welcome back to another installment of me answering questions for Just Geeking By‘s series of blogging prompts called Seriously Geeky Sundays. This week is all about animated topics. Definitely check out Heather’s creative prompts and take part in the fun if you want! I’m absolutely loving her questions so far.

So… without anymore intro babbling from me, here are my answers to Just Geeking By’s animating questions for this week. Thank you, Heather!

What is your favourite Disney movie?

I haven’t watched many Disney movies, but I’m pretty sure Mulan will always be my favourite. Mulan’s story was one of those things little me just needed to see. The most important messages I got out of this: gender does not define who you can be, and never let anyone else force you into becoming someone you’re not.

Bonus points for lovably sarcastic dragon!

What is your favourite non-Disney movie?

The Simpsons Movie. One of my all time favourite TV shows in movie form? Yes, please! I highly enjoyed all the antics and the main Under the Dome parody storyline.

Spider-pig, spider-pig!

What is your favourite animated show?

The Simpsons, of course. I haven’t paid attention to the new shows (think I dropped off around Season 12-ish) but those classic episodes will always have a special place in my heart.

I have many fond memories of watching the show with my parents (they knew the adult humor elements would be over my head). It was cool to watch something with them and we’d all be laughing at different things.

What was your favourite childhood show?

Digimon (Season 1). This is the first show that popped into my head! I don’t remember much about the story nowadays, but I remember really connecting with Sora’s character. I’d also love to have a cute pink bird buddy that can turn into a big badass guardian deity.

This cute pink bird can turn into….
THIS! Freaking awesome.

Who is your favourite animated character?

Homer Simpson. Given all the Simpsons answers I’ve been giving throughout Seriously Geeky Sundays, this should come as no surprise to anyone. I love his sarcasm and how much he cares about his family, even though he fails horribly in a lot of areas.

What is your favourite piece of music from animation?

The Futurama theme song. God, I miss this show so much. As this lovable cast of misfit characters has taught me, the future doesn’t have to be scary… it can be one big sarcastically amusing disaster too!

The show’s title song just screams futuristic vibes to me. Some parts also remind me of the Metroid video game series. So freaking good ❤

  1. Biyomon is great! Really curious to see how it will be in the new Digimon show!
    Garudamon and the whole Crest of Love thing was one of my favourite things about digimon! Houomon (their mega digivolution form) was pretty sweet as well! Great moment in Tri..which did not have to many great moments.

    I loved the Simpsons movie, though to me that is kinda the point where the Simpsons stopped being good. Later they began to emulate McFarlane’s shows instead of the other way around and Family Guy took over from the Simpsons for me! I do not really enjoy the first seasons with the yankey animation and odd voices but I am always up for a tree house of horror episode!

    The futurama theme is great! So very nice picks here!

  2. I haven’t seen a Simpsons episode in YEARS. My dad and I used to watch it at 6 pm on a Saturday or Sunday (I can’t remember which) every week. I remember I always had a bath before and I’d sit in front of the TV while he blow-dried it before it started. It was part of our weekend ritual for years and even now he breaks out a Simpsons joke now and again.

    Mulan also had a special place in my life. The song Reflection had a profound effect on me during my teenage years and really summed up how I was feeling at that time. It was one of the few Disney songs that weren’t all happy-go-lucky and was pure raw emotion.
