Oh, duuuude... How awesome would Hitchhiker's Guide be made into a toon?!

I remember the Bill & Ted movies and cartoon, but when was it a live-action series? The only LAS I remember with a time-travelling phone booth is Doctor Who.

The Tick--Oh, hell yes! That was some fun!

Hitchhiker's Guide--You bet I'd watch!

Mystery Men was a weird movie, but I'll bet it would make for a fun 'toon.

I totally want to see every Friday the 13th movie animated. That would be awesome.

I've been thinking that they should do an animated series for the Punisher. (Yeah, he's had movies.) But do it in the MAX comics format (Marvel's mature line). All the violence and language and junk, really make it MA!

That may prove difficult, however, ever since Disney bought Marvel.

Like '92 or so. I just remember the one where they went back and convinced Elvis not to give up on his music. I looked, and it's on YT. I wouldn't recommend watching it though, it's teeeerrrrrible.


Lol, "Nothing But Trouble". :lol: That'd make a weird one, but there's so much material to work with there.

District 9 would be interesting to see if it was done right.
