"Is there a Saturday Morning Cartoon Show in every century?"

Welcome back, everyone, or should I say welcome the future! :p Yes, I know, that was awful, but if you say it in a Michael Scott voice it's actually pretty funny. No, no it's not... 

Anyway, today's cartoon is in fact Back To The Future: The Animated Series, a smart, silly romp through both time and space featuring good writing, surprisingly impressive voice acting, and anachronisms that only lead to fun, something Quantum Leap couldn't say. The live action sequences with Christopher Lloyd that opened and closed the show are as much of a hoot as the show itself, plus they're all sciencey.

I'm not writing a ton today because a) this is one of those shows that is a lot of fun, but doesn't have a lot of historical or cultural significance and b) I have a friends Thanksgiving tonight and I need to get home to cook! I'm sure you understand. ;)

Join us next week for a show filled with daring do, car chases, and unnaturally living clay as far as the eye can see! Yup, we're doing Gumby.

For those of you in The States, have a great Thanksgiving, and for everyone else, enjoy!
