I’m ready to party with the Black Eyed Peas & Friends at Stan Lee’s L.A. Comic Con where they are performing at the FREE LACC Halloween Cosplay concert with friends! It’s even more excited that they will be at the LACC all weekend with the Marvel graphic novel Masters Of the Sun mixes L.A. Gang culture, B-Boy-ism and Egyptology to tell the heroic tale of a Hip-Hop group from East L.A. who must battle an ancient, alien God sent to earth to continue a Black Curse–which turns drug dealers and gangsters into zombies! With a deep love of the Hip-Hop culture, Zulu-X and his crew go head-to-head with a nefarious ancient order that has infiltrated the inner cities to settle an ancient score. What happens next can only be described as the perfect blend of action, ancient wisdom and street-smarts all rolled into one epic adventure. Boasting one of the most eclectic ensemble cast of characters, Masters of the Sun delivers a powerful social allegory in the form of a new movement! Wear comfy shoes for a fun weekend at LACC and dancing every night!

Storyboarding (ages 5-7)
Using blank storyboard templates, children will be able to map out a scene of their own design. This activity will give children a chance to try their hand at drawing their favorite Cartoon Network characters and then using their creativity, imagination, and literacy skills to fill in the dialogue and action boxes for a complete scene.
Flip Books, Thaumatropes, and Phenakistoscopes (ages 8-15)
One of the best ways of understanding how animation comes to life is to do it yourself. Children will be given the opportunity to create their own simple animation toys like flip books, thaumatropes, and phenakistoscopes that show how small changes over multiple images make for exciting results!

Fun Facts about Cartoon Network
An entire cable channel devoted to cartoons? Twenty-five years ago, the concept was revolutionary, yet here we are celebrating the anniversary of the October 1, 1992, launch of Cartoon Network, an industry titan that has played a crucial role in redefining children’s television, entertaining and inspiring generations of youths and animators. Like Samurai Jack, Cartoon Network has traveled far and wide in twenty-five years, finding a magical place to fulfill its destiny.
Initially, Cartoon Network provided its parent company, Turner Broadcasting, with a platform to leverage a formidable library of classic animation, including programming from Hanna-Barbera, MGM, UA, and Fleischer Studios—so, The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Scooby Doo Where Are You!, Tom and Jerry, Popeye, and numerous other iconic shows. But the following year CN began offering original programming—The Moxy Show was first, followed by Space Ghost Coast to Coast (combining old and new footage) and an incubator initiative, spearheaded by John Kricfalusi and Fred Seibert, that produced such shows as Dexter’s Laboratory, Johnny Bravo, and The Powerpuff Girls. In no time at all, Cartoon had demonstrated its commitment to experimentation and innovation, nurturing independent up-and-comers like Genndy Tartakovsky, Craig McCracken, and Van Partible.
Turner’s 1996 merger with Time Warner opened new doors, resulting in the arrival of animated adaptations of such Warner properties as Justice League, Teen Titans, Acquaman, and the many permutations of Batman. In 1997 Cartoon launched Sean Atkins and Jason DeMarco’s Toonami, a programming block showcasing action anime.
The list of successful CN shows over the last twenty-five years is way too long to present here, but just to whet your appetite: Adventure Time; Steven Universe; The Amazing World of Gumball; Ben 10; Ed, Edd, and Eddy; Samurai Jack; Grim & Evil; The Grim Adventures of Bill & Mandy; Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends; Regular Show; and, from 2003–05, three seasons of Tartakovsky’s Star Wars: Clone Wars—perhaps you’ve heard of some of them?
What do the next twenty-five years hold in store for Cartoon Network? “Everything ahead of us is totally unknown,” says Jake, Jr., in Adventure Time, one of CN’s most beloved shows. But like Old Tart Toter says in the same show, we’ll “still be here tomorrow to high five you yesterday.”

Relive the 80s at the Paley Center for Media and celebrate The Goldbergs (ABC) on October 17, 2017 with a screening, panel conversation and audience Q&A with the cast and creative team.
PaleyLive Fall 2017 season welcomes fans of the ABC series The Goldbergs. Fans of the series enjoy laughing on the series based on creator Adam F. Goldberg’s childhood memories from his families videotaped home movies. The series has delighted fans reliving their own memories and also showing current generation how people survived without a cellphone and twitter.
ABC’s The Goldbergs 100th episode will go where no series has gone before with the ultimate geek debate Star Trek vs Star Wars. The episode is called ‘Trek Wars’ and Adam (Sean Giambrone) is sure he’s found his soulmate in girlfriend Jackie (Rowan Blanchard), but he’s stunned when their first Halloween together reveals that she’s a Star Trek fan while he’s devoted to Star Wars. The ultimate geek dispute may be a hurdle their relationship cannot overcome.
The episode will be directed by Back to the Future alum Lea Thompson who returns to direct her second episode set to air Wednesday, Oct. 25, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
“The Goldbergs perfectly captures those fun and crazy days of Pacman, big hair, and Rubik’s Cube,” said Maureen J. Reidy, the Paley Center’s President & CEO. “This program promises to be an evening of nostalgia and laughter, and is one of the many reasons why PaleyLive programs are the premier experience for both the public and industry professionals.”
The Paley Center proudly welcomes the cast and creative team including: Wendi McLendon-Covey (“Beverly Goldberg”), George Segal (“Pops Solomon”), Sean Giambrone (“Adam Goldberg”), Haley Orrantia (“Erica Goldberg”), Troy Gentile (“Barry Goldberg”), Adam F. Goldberg (Creator and Executive Producer), and Doug Robinson (Executive Producer) for this special screening & conversation.
PaleyLive programs offer television fans the rare opportunity to engage with the cast and creative teams of their favorite programs in intimate settings held at The Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills. All PaleyLive programs are selected by the Paley Center to not only expand society’s understanding of the cultural, creative, and social significance of television, but also for their ability to educate and entertain the public.

The final and fourth season of Star Wars Rebels will premier Monday, October 16th on Disney XD
Well in the final season the Ghost crew joins the Rebel Alliance that is having a hard time against the enormous and powerful Galactic Empire. It becomes even more personal for Ezra as the Empire threatens Lothal with Imperial Occupation. The entire crew goes back to fight an all foe the evil genius Grand Admiral Thrown. Going home means that they will reunite with old friends and make new alliances to try to throw the Imperials off his home planet.
What do YOU think is in store for our ragtag crew of rebels? I’m hoping that we’ll see more of Kanan & Hera’s relationship (I read the book about how the met <swoon>). I don’t think that Sabine will never stop thinking of Ezra as her ‘kid brother’ but I don’t think we’ll get a Princess Leia/Luke reveal that he’s REALLY her brother! I’m very excited about meeting some of the new characters and creatures in the final season. I love the alien creature we’ve met over the past three seasons on Star Wars Rebels and can’t wait to see what Dave and the team think up for the epic final season! Leave a comment below or tweet me @cherry_LA with what have been some of your favorite episodes, stories and characters! Let’s live tweet the premier episode and get ready to be on the edge of our seats as the final epic season unfolds. May the force be with you …..
