This week, we play catch up with Marvel Anime: X-Men (with Marvel Anime: Blade starting in January!) a take a look at new episodes of Robot Chicken, Generator Rex, along with the China, IL New Year's Special. Young Justice & Star Wars: The Clone Wars return next week, so keep tuned for new cartoons! Minor spoilers ahead.
Generator Rex – "Double Vision"
Rex is in a bit of trouble. The poor guy gets a facial pollination while trying to fight/cure an E.V.O. that looks like the monster from Little Shop of Horrors on Performance Enhancing Drugs, only to have a mysterious woman on a motorcycle speed off with his goggles in the first clip.
Marvel Anime: X-Men – "Revelations"
Beast confronts a scientist who is tampering with the DNA of mutants, calling on Professor X. We see what's going on with the Prof in the first clip, as he takes a very psychedelic trip in the Blackbird (never fly on hallucinogens) thanks to the actions of an unknown telepath.
Marvel Anime: X-Men – "Countdown"
The X-Men discover a device that Yui built to prevent mutant detection (an anti-Cerebro!) and the cause of Professor X's telepathic troubles from the last several episodes, including the bizarre little flight he took in the last episode.
Robot Chicken – "Fool's Goldfinger"
A newly discovered, half-finished sequel to The Lord of the Rings is completed by Tolkein's six-year-old great-grandson! Intermixed between dialogue that sounds like it a narcoleptic Tolkein are the idle thoughts of a child. A couple of plot twists (Gandlalf and the hobbits get F16s!) and the Hobbits say poop a lot.
China, IL – "New Year's Special"
Irrevocable F's for Christmas! In the first clip, every student gets an F on their final exams as a gift from the Dean for Christmas, leading to riots and government intervention. A Mr. T-like Mayor pops up to fight the Dean, announcing that the Professors have to re-teach the entire semester before New Year's Eve or else the college becomes an airport (The secret origin of airports!).
Robot Chicken airs Sunday nights on Cartoon Network. Generator Rex airs Friday nights on the Cartoon Network. Marvel Anime: X-Men airs Friday nights on G4TV.
