As many of you know, Genndy Tartakovsky was a Russian-born–but Chicago bred–and US-based animation director whose work has always garnered a cult following apiece.

American audiences (myself included) knew this animator guy best for his animation design on Dexter’s Laboratory (up until Ego Trip in 1999) and Samurai Jack (one of my personal favs)–both of which Genndy also created.

And I, for one, am still a huge fan of Genndy Tartakovsky’s art, but consider this:

If I ever someday hire Genndy Tartakovsky either as one of the animation production designers or as one of the animation production design consultants for one of my movies, ToonTalkers, which is not only to be the exciting story of the action packed inter-dimensional adventures of three diverse teenage comic book artists and high school friends (one of them is an Asian or Japanese girl named Akima; the second is a white guy named Brandon; and the third is a big strong black guy named Calvin) who created through comic books an epic cartoon world that turn out to be real (shades of Ralph Bakshi’s ill-received Cool World) and then tried to stop an Aku-like demon sorcerer from setting his sights on the human world by finding the lost Emerald Shard, heal the once-broken Great Crystal Stone with said shard (shades of The Dark Crystal) and restore order to the universe and its human-cartoon dimensional divide, but is also to be a mainly 2D [rather than just entirely CG] animated CinemaScope widescreen feature film book-ended by live action scenes (in a 1.85 format) in a similar manner to MGM’s Wizard of Oz’s use of sepia toned black and white scenes to bookend the Technicolor scenes in that movie, and even if some of Genndy Tartakovsky’s designs for one of my movies (the aforementioned ToonTalkers) may go directly to screen, what would you think if Genndy Tartakovsky’s animation style on Samurai Jack and that of his 1990s animation work on Dexter’s Laboratory (or even aspects of Genndy’s graphic style) would be combined with or incorporated into the softer, more naturalistic Disney animation style (particularly of the animated Disney movies of the 80s and 90s Disney Renaissance or beyond that point), possibly with tremendously great success?

The Birth of Evil: The IMAX Experience by timbox129
The Birth of Evil: The IMAX Experience
Well, I wish Genndy Tartakovsky’s 2003 Emmy Award Winning ‘Birth of Evil’ episodes from his Samurai Jack cartoon show were revived and presented someday in IMAX theatres everywhere–just like the IMAX version of Game of Thrones (and/or Fantasia/2000)–and presumably on IMAX 70mm film screens and/or IMAX digital screens and/or IMAX laser projection screens, to say the least.

If so, anyway, would Samurai Jack The Birth of Evil Parts I and II being shown in IMAX (whether it be on IMAX Digital Screens, IMAX 70mm Film Screens, and/or even IMAX laser projection screens) someday be a cool and awesome dream come true or what?

The Cereal-Guy and The Legendary GoGo Tomago by timbox129
The Cereal-Guy and The Legendary GoGo Tomago
I don't know about this meme, but what would the Cereal-Guy think of the Legendary GoGo Tomago from Big Hero 6?

If so, what would be the Cereal Guy's reaction to the Legendary GoGo Tomago?
Loading...
There’s a city by the Bay where East meets West
And it is called San Fransokyo, no more, no less
And it is in this alternate world, perhaps
That a boy named Hiro befriend a robot named Baymax
But there is one daredevil girl that we haven’t get to
She of the throwing disc, riding bike and bubble gum chew
But at least I’m here to tell the tale to you…
Of GoGo Tomago

She’s a woman of few words whose magic words is ‘Woman Up!’
And at least she’s a whiz on electromagnetic stuff
But in the comic books from which came her tale
She’s actually a criminal about to be sent to jail!
But as they say in the comics, you see
She was forced to join the Big Hero 6 team
So she could improve her attitude and avoid jail time
And that was the birth…
Of GoGo Tomago

She’d ride after some bank robber like a demon unleashed
And use her disc to slice through his truck like a knife through a peach
One half of his truck took the high road; the other took the Bay below
And his message would go out on his radio:
“Mayday Mayday Look out watch your back be afraid
There’s a daredevil girl with discs as sharp as a blade”
So a feared and revered reputation was made…
Of GoGo Tomago

She’d be known for her amazing engineering skills
And her fearless need for speed if you will
And she’d use her skills to build special discs indeed
And those allow her to move at supersonic speed
And when Hiro and friends needs any help, perhaps
She’ll be there for them in a very quick flash!
And she’s the fastest member of any team you may ask
She’s GoGo Tomago

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.

If I remade Dexter's Lab, how would you respond if I announced that Dee Dee wasn't allowed to dance?

I know I am autistic, but would my quest to fulfill my dreams be built on as well end in controversy or not?

If so, would my actual life (especially on the internet and especially during the making of Dexter's Odyssey) might forever remain the subject of controversy?

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.

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!
