The show is called "Cadillacs and Dinosaurs." No, I'm not making that up. I don't know if General Motors payed for this, but I doubt it, since this was apparently based on a comic book, like many of the shows of the 1990's. The intro to the show, I'll be honest, makes it sound like one of the most hilariously bad things you'll ever see/hear.

"In the 26th Century, mankind faces an epic struggle for survival. The forces of nature have spun wildly out of control. Mighty cities have crumbled and the dinosaurs have returned to reclaim the earth. In this savage land, one man stands alone: Jack Tenrec, defending humanity in a world gone mad, a world where only the strong survive, a world of Cadillacs and Dinosaurs."

brought to us by the screen writer of Diehard and 48 Hours.

Now obviously I expected a parody or spoof of similar action movies, but no... it plays it seriously. And it's all the better for it. Honestly, one of the things this show reminds me of the most isn't Die Hard, but Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind. Our hero Jack, is like a cross between Nausicaa and G.I. Joe. So basically, nature has gained the upper hand against mankind. The show isn't quite post-apocalyptic, but it's on its way there. For whatever reason there are now dinosaurs roaming the world. Many people want to strike back against nature... as humans have done in the past, including the Governor of Jack's city. However Jack often finds way to stop the problems that the dinosaurs cause without harming them, and despite sabotage by that Governor.

I don't know if you could call the environmental message subtle, or at least as subtle as Sonic SAT AM, but it's definitely more subtle than Nausicaa. So... this show is G.I. Joe mixed with Jurassic Park mixed with Nausicaa of the valley of the Wind. Oh, and the Cadillac? It's what Jack drives. And it rarely feels like an advertisement for a Cadillac. But the action is good, the stories are well-written, it's better at being environmental than its contemporaries like Captain Planet.

Are there any problems? Yeah, one. There was only one season of 13 episodes and it was never considered for renewal. This, Watchmojo, is the definition of a criminally underrated show. And it's not like I can't see why this flopped. I mean, the title: Cadillacs and Dinosaurs. I'll be 100% honest, I expected this to be terrible. I mean, the title was probably there to get people to look out of curiosity (which I guess worked for me), but it seemed to backfire.

But that title does continue to grow on you, when you get to say facts like:
  • "Cadillacs and Dinosaurs is one of the best environmental cartoons I've ever seen."
  • "Cadillacs and Dinosaurs is one of the most underrated cartoons ever."
  • "Cadillacs and Dinosaurs is one of the best action cartoons of the 90's"
  • "Cadillacs and Dinosaurs needs to make a comeback"
After the 70's marathon is over, I've got to do an Admirable Animation review on this show. It's shows like this that make scouring through animation history worth it. The strange part is that this is from the 90's, the popular "nostalgia" era now. I can only assume that more people aren't looking fondly back on Cadillacs and Dinosaurs because they never saw it back when it was on.

I will draw them in whatever style or format I want (chibi, sketch, fullbody, etc.)

If you don't have an OC that's ok! I'll send you a note and I'm fine with drawing fanart or someone else's OC. This is only if you don't have an OC uploaded otherwise I will pick whichever of your OCs I like the design of best. 

Anyone watching me can participate. All you have to do is favorite this journal (wish I didn't have to make you do that but it's the only way I can generate an active watcher to draw something for)

I won't do this very often considering I need to have a reason to keep commissions open. I can't give freebies to everyone but every few months I will. 
Thanks guys! 

A normal day with my mother...

Sun May 24, 2015, 2:40 AM
I asked for a banana. Mother carves one into a penis and gives it to me.

I told mother that people online get crushes on fictinal characters and even pretend they are married to them. She is now married to The Phantom, Raoul, Olaf, Scrat, Sid the Sloth and Jack Frost.

Now we are watchling Les Mis and she is laughing. I asked her why. She said she had a random thought of Jean Va Jean sucking his own dick.

Also she said when I am older I can work at the condom store and if I get a good sum of money, she would be OK with me being a porn star.

She wants me to print out R34 for my grandma.

She always pays for my friends when we have outings :D

stop using feminazi??? as a word??? 

since when did the word feminist get so bad that now we have to be compared to the nazis that committed mass genocide
broe the only things feminists want is equality, so no need for your "egalitarian"  because that's what feminism already means ya shit head 

lmfao it's perfectly fine for a guy to throw around slurs @ women, calling them bitches, whores or other really disgusting things but as soon as someone catches a girl say "men are pigs" she's suddenly on the evil level of the nazi's.

"but some feminists only want women in power!!" "feminism is a hate movement toward men and feminism want's to over power men!"
shut up tho. 
once again, feminism is just wanting to have the same rights as men do??? since when are there women in power anyway LMFAO

goddaaamn

oh no! i want equality! i'm such a terrible person ):

Check Encyclopedia Dramatica for her ED page.

Her white knights found it and oooohhhh boy they are flippin' their sh*t. Guys, whatever happened to "LULZ THAT WEBSITES STERPID IDGAFFFFFFF"

I mean like FCU777 AND Starrceline got an ED page. No one batted an eye. Now suddenly that senpai Joanna got one you're freaking the f*ck out? Well, haven't you just proven who the alpha thumper is? :I

Seriously guys Joanna herself said many times how much she didn't give a flying f*ck about getting an ED page in the future so why are you getting so butthurt? Or are you worried it hurt her feelings? Like how she's done to so many people and then proceeded to say she didn't care about being a grade A a*shole? Awwww. Poooorrrr baby. 3:

Lik dis if u cri evrytim ;'(((((((((
