According to this schedule for the upcoming week, no Korra episodes are airing at all. Book 3 was supposedto air in its entirety starting Monday at 8pm with an episode every Monday - Thursday. There was even that commercial for it on Nicktoons, so there’s a small chance it’s still happening and Nick just forgot to update their schedule but we wouldn’t put it past them to just cancel it either. They could also be waiting to air it with Book 4 when that’s done some time in December.
I checked the guide just a few days ago and Korra was listed, but now it’s disappeared entirely. It worries me since cable providers have already caught on to this mysterious schedule change, but I’m hoping this is all a mistake on whoever’s part.
Otherwise, I am legitimately pissed off at Nickelodeon. First, they screw around with the time slot and advertising. Then they move Korra online. And while I’ve pretty much gotten over that now, it makes me wonder why Nick wouldn’t even allow the show a chance on Nicktoons. As if Wild Grinders and that Monsters VS Aliens TV show were fairing any better? Well… sooorry, Nick, for having Korra interfere with your “vision”.
I literally broke into a fit of manic laughter. I’m pretty sure the screaming also woke up the neighbors, but hey… Gurren FREAKING Lagann is available on Netflix streaming again. How am I supposed to react?
Hullabaloo is a 2D hand-drawn animated steampunk film that hopes to help preserve the dying art of 2D animation. We want you to join us in making a short film that will showcase the world of Hullabaloo. In addition to helping save 2D animation, Hullabaloo aims to encourage girls to explore science and adventure. The film’s two protagonists are both young women and both scientists who use their intellect, wits, and courage to fight greed and corruption. We hope that Veronica Daring and her friend Jules will serve as positive role models for girls of all ages and encourage them to get excited about science, engineering, and sci-fi.

As much as it pains me to see 2D animation being referred to as a “dying art”, much of it is true. In an industry where CG animation is all the rage in family entertainment, producers naturally want to go with whatever side they deem most profitable. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve enjoyed a lot of the more recent titles from studios like Pixar and Dreamworks, but on the United States’ current market, CG is all they provide. That’s why I often turn to countries like France and Japan because they seem to be some of the few countries who aren’t following the trend of completely ignoring traditional animation.
On to the point, this new 2D project entitled “Hullabaloo” looks absolutely fantastic! The main selling point for me is not only the fact that it has an impressive lineup of individuals working on it (more information on that and crowdfunding here), but also that it’s part of the “steampunk” genre… and that’s an animated film I’ve been wanting for so long now. For these people, I say forget Disney and their marketing the hell out of Frozen and Cars, and put some soul back into our animation.
It seems like the Korra fanbase likes to place suspicion on every character that shows up, even regardless of actual screen time. Guess what: Bumi (and Aang!) was not Amon, Asami was not an Equalist, and Suyin was not a member of the Red Lotus! While I’m not saying Kuvira isn’t a villain, it’s far too early to begin speculating.
Not to mention, she saved Tonraq’s life. Call me crazy, but I don’t see anything malicious at all there.
