    I'd guess Billy Bob Thompson. (Voice of Greninja in its various stages, Squishy, Ash's Charmander and Charmeleon in I Choose You, and the Male Pokemon Trainer in Smash Ultimate among others.) His register is very similar to Jay Goede's from the original film, so he'd be a good sub.

    This one had me think twice about every save and quit at the end of a Banjo session as a kid. While admittedly kind of a funny idea looking back on it, the baddie actually winning and a cute little bear cub being turned into...THAT was simply too much for my young mind to bear without being severely freaked out.

    Was kind of hoping they'd get Mewtwo's original voice actor (who, contrary to rumors, is NOT dead) for nostalgia's sake, but Dan Green is every bit as good, if not better. In a world where Pokemon voices have been particularly average in recent years, Mewtwo sounds AWESOME as ever. My favorite Pokemon ever deserves nothing less than Dan Green.
    Who was that voicing Mr. FuJi? He sounds exactly the same as he did in the original film.

    This certainly took long enough:
    Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution's dub is coming first to Netflix on February 27th, Pokemon Day itself. Dan Green will be reprising Mewtwo all the way back from Returns, which is a casting touch I very much appreciate. 😊

    Very happy about the next GP character, completing another set.
    Also, I love how Megamix's podium animation is glitching between all four of his components' victories.

    Cinematic Speedster CC14 reacted to Wraith in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - PLEASE SPOILER TAG LEAKS   
    I was expecting the reaction to be negative here but I'm annoyed with the community overall on twitter/reddit/yt for their behavior about this. There are 6 more coming if you don't like this one. Get some air.
    I was annoyed by the pick but the character looks decent in action. I'd be more annoyed if Byleth was another shallow rushdown character like the other FE reps but they actually finally worked the other weapon types in along with a couple other things I've wanted them to try. Looking at her kit I can't see her being very useful against the stronger characters so we're looking at another hero/banjo where she's underwhelming power wise but has some goofiness to make up for it. I don't see myself using her too much but there's enough there for me to want to try her out. 


    It would be ideal if they were released earlier but I imagine they just bring these characters out in the order that they're ready to be presented and there's not a lot of forethought about how the hype cycle will be. Once again I find myself being put off by people being more critical of Smash bros's marketing than they are of it as a game. It's just a commercial. It's not meant to be entertainment.

    I love the contrast between Big's gleeful frog-obtaining and the faceship just vomiting metal plague in the background.
    Also, seems like Ian will be handling Big's story in this, so it should be a fun (probably also tragic) time:

    Cinematic Speedster CC14 got a reaction from skull902 in Animated Christmas specials   
    Here are a few of my personal favorites, starting with a lesser-known one: 
    The Santa Claus Brothers was a special that Toon Disney would run quite a bit in the early 2000s. It's a CG production about Santa's three sons each trying to prove themselves worthy to take over Pops' duties when he retires, but the meddling of a power-hungry elf tries to throw a monkey wrench in things.
    The special actually features an all-star main cast with Kevin McDonald, Richard Kind, and Harland Williams (years before I would know him as "that guy who wouldn't stop talking about Space Ghost's veiny legs") as the eponymous Brothers, Caroline Rhea (who you probably know as either Hilda Spellman or the oblivious Mother of Phineas and Ferb) as Mrs. Claus, and freaking BRYAN CRANSTON AS SANTA CLAUS. Dat Malcolm in the Middle boost.
    While I wouldn't say it's objectively anything too special, I enjoy its toy-esque style and I think the cast does a great job. It's just a charming, goofy little TV special that really stuck with me after all these years.

    Olive the Other Reindeer is another favorite that I'm sure more of you have heard of. Produced by Matt Groening and animated by DNA Productions, this is another one that I grew to love through TV reruns. (Specifically when Cartoon Network would air it every year. Whatever happened to that?) The picture-book style is really charming, the songs are cute, there's some good humor, and Drew Barrymore never ceases to be just adorable. 


    Moving on to Christmas episodes of shows, I always loved when the Pokemon anime would dip its toes in festivity, whether through the Porygon-delayed-then-Jynx-banned romp Holiday Hi-Jynx (featuring the trademark random Pokemon anime weirdness of a talking Lapras and the length of a boat trip from the Kanto region to the North Pole apparently being a single day) or the various Pikachu's Winter Vacation specials. It's just kinda fun to see Ash and crew put their journey on hold to take in the season.

    Another personal TV fave is Invader ZIM's contribution to the holiday zeitgeist, The Most Horrible X-Mas Ever. Famous for ending up essentially being ZIM's series finale and the only finished animated episode to feature Mini-Moose until the Enter the Florpus movie, there's just too many laugh-out-loud moments to list and it's a great mix of the show's usual absurdity along with the fun of Christmas. Merry Platypus, one and all!
    Also, this isn't an actual pick because the short is pretty "eh," but I have to at least mention the episode "Don't Be Elf-ish" from the Timon and Pumbaa cartoon. Why?
    BECAUSE IT'S A CHRISTMAS SPECIAL WHERE TIMON AND PUMBAA WANT AN N64 PARODY. THIS IS THE MOST LATE 90'S THING.
    Finally, I'd like to spotlight something that's not really an animated TV special or episode, but related and nostalgic nonetheless:
    Animated Christmas commercials for kid channels and programming blocks will always have a special place in my holiday celebrations. Whether it's through Nickelodeon's loving parodies of classic Christmas specials or through Kids WB's charmingly goofy alternate takes on holiday tunes to reflect their line-up, they're a lot of fun to revisit and make me super nostalgic for the Christmas breaks of my youth. Plus, where else are you going to see a stop-motion-animated Zim violently ask who SpongeBob is or hear Meowth singing a duet with Sylvester? Only in these weird, WEIRD holiday bumpers!

    @Koopa Klaus CC14 I completely forgot about Santa Claus Bros! I had it on VHS as a kid. I had no idea there were famous faces behind the characters!
    Since you’ve also brought up Christmas bumpers
    This takes me back to when we temporarily had Nickelodeon on our TV for the first time, which just happened to be at Christmastime. I never really noticed at the time, since I didn’t pay nearly enough attention to Hey Arnold, but it’s kinda funny seeing how they completely dubbed over Mr. Hyunh with a voice that’s not even trying to sound like him.
    Nickelodeon had a few great Christmas promos in fact.
    The twist at the end still cracks me up (“she decided right then and there, she really, truly, didn’t care!”)
    HAPPY (insert holiday choice here) TO YOU!
    And one last shoutout to this one from Cartoon Network UK, from the year of my first ever Christmas with the channel.
