Hello. My name is Tim. My favorite cartoons are Dexter's Laboratory and Samurai Jack, while one of my favorite movies is James Cameron's AVATAR. I always wanted to become a filmmaker and animation artist.

This may sound totally unrealistic to some or many people at this point—at least considering that Samurai Jack is a great cult cartoon that nonetheless doesn’t normally has as much as a huge fan base just to tackle the likes of Disney’s Frozen (2013), The Lion King (1994) and/or such like, and sure, nobody, not even yours truly or Genndy Tartakovsky or his fans, can truly imagine or expect or predict that a theatrical big screen Samurai Jack feature film might end up being a giant mega-hit that succeed beyond the wildest dreams and expectations of yours truly, Genndy Tartakovsky himself or his fans, let alone such a phenomenon, but…

What if Genndy Tartakovsky’s Samurai Jack (the cartoon show itself and especially the character of Samurai Jack himself) might gain new-found fame if a theatrical big screen cinematic feature film that might bring Samurai Jack’s quest “to return to the past and undo the future that is Aku” to a true proper conclusion, might not only succeed where things like The Powerpuff Girls Movie (2002) failed to do years ago, but also succeed beyond even the wildest dreams of the cult animator who created Samurai Jack that is Genndy Tartakovsky himself and/or his fans—much to the surprise of everybody around the world—and in an almost completely unexpected way—and not to mention, topple Disney’s Frozen (2013) and The Lion King (1994) and/or such like to become one of, or if not, the highest grossing (and also one of, or if not, the most successful) animated feature film of all time, and in cinema history, and to the point of not only scaring Disney and other companies and filmmakers (such as the likes of Terminator/Titanic/Avatar director James Cameron)—Hollywood or otherwise—enough to start trying to step up their game even more, but at the same time inspire them to do something similar, even if the animation art style alone might end up becoming such a trendsetter?

Well, given that no one could truly imagine or expect or predict that a Samurai Jack feature film might become a giant mega-hit that succeeds beyond even the wildest dreams of yours truly, or the show’s fans, or Genndy Tartakovsky himself, or Genndy’s own fans, would you, or big screen audiences, (or even a whole new generation of young people—read: kids who have very little or no connection to Genndy Tartakovsky’s classic TV animations, but will still love anything with the ‘Cartoon Network’ or the ‘Samurai Jack’ or some other name on it) still pay to see a theatrical big screen Samurai Jack feature film if it finally becomes a reality, an actuality as well as a fact?

And would the public (or even at least modern audiences to whom hand drawn cartoons are now so alien) really accept a visual-heavy, almost-dialogue-free and largely hand drawn animated action movie involving a time-displaced feudal/Edo-period Japanese swordsman and a giant godlike demonic wizard?

I thought Japanese/Chinese Boys don't wear Komonos however you spell it.

Well, Japanese and Chinese boys do wear their traditional clothes (kimonos for boys of the Japanese kind) in ancient days, and some modern Japanese boys (or sometimes girls) still wore traditional kimonos, though some wore more modern clothes. 

After all, Samurai Jack is a cartoon to you and I, so Jack still wears a kimono even as a child, given the fact that he is a time-displaced warrior prince.

Hey guys, if you want to see Dexter's Lab and Samurai Jack screenshots and fan musings...






Remember, here there be stills or screenshots from Samurai Jack as well as those from Dexter's Laboratory.

Not to mention my fan musings.

And BTW, while you're at it, what do you see on my Tumblr blog, "Timboxreloaded"?

Dexter Odyssey sounds amazing, are you going to Calarts to learn animation?

Hello, if you're interested in making an epic film, I'd recommend reading "The Hero with a Thousand Faces" by Joseph Campbell. Some of the best directors have used it as a guide.

Here's an update for you, soundofspheres. It's official that I finally got the book "The Hero with a Thousand Faces" by Joseph Campbell yesterday on Christmas Morning 2012. Thank you, soundofsphere, for recommending me to read Joseph Campbell's classic 1949 book The Hero with a Thousand Faces, and I'll make sure to use that book as a guide if I am interested in making an epic film like my intended masterpiece (and proposed Dexter's Laboratory reboot) the monumental and colossal 12-part live action/animated epic that is Dexter's Odyssey.

Again, thanks a lot for recommending that influential book by Joseph Campbell to me.

Once again, Thank You!
