Comic-Con Trailers: The Best of the Best, Ranked
A lot happened in the nearly 17 years between the end of Sailor Moon and the revival last summer with Sailor Moon Crystal: The world ushered in a new millennium, governments rose and fell, the human genome was mapped, Pluto was downgraded to a dwarf planet …
It’s that last development, however, that most concerns the Sailor Soldiers in the latest video from ADHD (Animation Domination High-Def). It turns out there’s a pecking order in this team of magical girls, and now beleaguered Sailor Pluto is at the bottom.
Fox may have pulled the plug on its fledgling late-night programming block, but Animation Domination High-Def is still chugging along online, delivering its own lead-in to Independence Day: a parody of the opening to the 1966 Captain America cartoon that celebrates — ahem, make that “celebrates” — the United States’ statistical rankings in the world.
Watch the ADHF sendup, and the original cartoon’s intro, below.
A few months ago, the folks behind ADHD, Fox’s upcoming late-night animation block, haunted our dreams with “Scientifically Accurate Spider-Man” — “Lanky arms and little mask, his web erupts from out his ass” — and now they’re back to turn on you off Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles faster than you can say “Michael Bay.”
If you’re of delicate constitution or work in a place where cartoon images of reptile genitalia are frowned upon, you may want to skip this one. However, if you have the intestinal fortitude, and an understanding boss, then by all means, watch the video below for the horror that is the well-endowed, deaf, hissing, salmonella-transmitting Heroes in a Half Shell.
Although the animated adaptation of Axe Cop, the hit webcomic by brothers Malachai Nicolle and Ethan Nicolle, doesn’t premiere for more than six months — July 27, to be exact! — Fox is offering a taste of what we can expect from the show in the form of another installment of “Ask Axe Cop.”
In the clip, which you can watch below, young Keith asks, “Would you ever consider running for president? And if so, what would your platform be?” The answer, as delivered by Nick Offerman — yes, in case you missed it, Ron Swanson of Parks and Recreation voices Axe Cop — is as funny as you might expect.
Part of Fox’s new Animation Domination High-Def late-night programming block, Axe Cop also features the voice talents of Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally, Patton Oswalt, Ken Marino and Peter Serafinowicz. ADHD premieres Saturday, July 27 at 11 p.m. ET/PT.
