10 Cartoons From the ’90s That Still Need Live-Action Movies
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is now in theaters. It’s an adaptation of a classic 19th century Russian novella… Wait, that’s not right. It’s based on a cartoon from the ’80s and ’90s about a bunch of giant turtles, which was based on a comic book. And it already had a live-action movie back in 1990. Granted, in that one the turtles were just guys in costumes because they didn;t have modern turtle-animating technology. Or Megan Fox. Just look at her up there. Greatest actress of our generation.
I don’t know about you, but I’m a little annoyed that out of all the classic ’90s cartoons Hollywood could have turned into a live-action blockbuster, they chose TMNT. There are so many cartoons I loved as a kid that would be so much more fun on the big screen. And I’m not talking about an animated movie. Most of them already had those. I’m talking about a live-action version with big stars and CGI versions of the non-human characters. Here are a few suggestions. Listen up, Hollywood. And stop making so many goddamn Alvin and the Chipmunks movies!
