Fans of Nickelodeon’s Avatar: The Last Airbender have been all atwitter about the so-called Avatar movie, although some sources say it’s just two episodes shown back-to-back. Who cares? It’s more Avatar, and that’s good enough for us. Avatar Spirit posted handy pointers to both the “Secret of the Fire Nation” trailer and preview. I showed these to my son and he couldn’t stop bouncing. Or asking me when he could watch the whole thing (September 15th).
In the meantime, I turned to Toon Zone to find something else to distract him. The newly revised list of Toon Disney August movies is up, and there are some oldie-but-goodies coming up later this month. In fact, Atlantis: The Lost Empire is on tonight at 5:00. I may let the kids out of the attic long enough to let them watch.
The other excellent piece of news I read this morning is that Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends episodes are now available through iTunes for $1.99 an episode, or $19.99 for the entire first season. Words cannot describe the joy that filled my heart, learning that. Also, did you know that Foster’s has has its own blog? It’s true! Lots of goodies to be found there.
Of course, if you’re having a beautiful day out (as we are, today), you and the kids should be outside playing, not inside glued to the television or the computer. Obviously. But sometimes, you need a little respite in cartoon form… either because it’s raining out or because you need an hour of peace. Tuck these links away for future use as needed, I say.
