Should I Toon In? Yamishibai


It’s time for a new Should I Toon In. Animated shows come in a variety of flavors. There are plentiful comedies like Animaniacs or Tiny Toons. Sci Fi and Action are also highly represented in animation as well. One genre however that is often over looked is horror. Oh, I’m not talking about stuff like Ghostbusters, I’m talking real horror. It’s a shame too because everyone loves a ghost story and animation is a great medium for delivering one. Don’t believe me? Well check out the show we’re talking about this week: Yamishibai.

Should I Toon In? Teen Titans Go!




It’s time once again for another edition of “Should I Toon In?” Teen Titans on Cartoon Network was honestly one of my favorite cartoons of that era. It had strong likeable characters, great humor and great action. Sadly after 5 seasons the show came to a close but at least it left with one amazing two-part climax. However this episode isn’t about THAT Teen Titans. If it was I’d tell you to go out and watch it right now. Nope, this episode is about the new spinoff/reimagining of Teen Titans, Teen Titans Go. How does this one compare to it’s original? Let’s find out shall we?

Should I Toon In? Adventure Time


On this edition of “Should I Toon In” we take a look at a show I’ve been meaning to review for MONTHS now; Cartoon Network’s not so new anymore show, “Adventure Time with Finn and Jake”. Adventure Time is a 15 minute cartoon show that revolves around the awesomely surreal adventures of a young boy Finn and his magical dog Jake. Don’t worry, the show isn’t nearly as cheesy as it sounds.

Should I Toon In? Bob’s Burgers

Today on Should I Toon In I take a look at Fox Sunday Night’s newest cartoon: Bob’s Burgers. This show is self described as a “man, his family and their floundering burger joint” and it does deliver what it promises. The show revolves around Bob, the cook and owner of a small hamburger joint, and his quirky family. By the way, if you came here expecting me to make a bunch of hamburger related puns… you’ve come to the right place, but they’ll come later.
