Sunday Morning Cartoon Cavalcade Vol. 2

Well, it didn’t take long for my plans to watch cartoons on Saturday mornings to switch over to Sunday mornings, and that’s because the new season of Samurai Jack airs on Saturday nights, and so it’s what I want to watch first thing on Sunday. This past Sunday I again kicked things off with Samurai Jack, which was episode 3 of the new season, and another fantastic one at that — the fight in the snow was mesmerizing. I followed that up with Star Wars Rebels, although with that series I’m running a few episodes behind — I think the 3rd season just ended, but I’m at episode 16. I then watched a couple of Mickey Mouse shorts, one of them the “Tokyo Go” one, which is just so much fun to watch. After that, I still had Samurai Jack on my mind, and so decided to go back and watch one of the older episodes. I had started watching them a while back, and so went back to that, which was season 2’s 5th episode. There were interesting parallels with what we’re seeing in the new season, as he confronts 8 deadly robots, with a scene that surely inspired the one where the sisters each get their masks. I liked going back to watching something old, so decided to follow that up with Ren & Stimpy, which I haven’t watched since back in the day. I watched the pilot episode, and I think I’ll keep watching some each week. I then capped my cartoon watching with Steven Universe. I’d heard it was good, but for some reason had never bothered checking it out. I watched the first 2 episodes, and absolutely loved them. I’m in.
