Goodman is another person who gets the E.F. Hutton treatment from me. :-)

That is pretty cool. As if one of the Powerpuff Girls had been a ninja.

I have to amend: This cartoon is SO delightful.

Such a great visual style, moments left implied rather than overtly depicted ... as with all the best kid-friendly cartoons, it works on a second level that adult viewers will appreciate. Not an R-rated level, just ... adult in its sensibilities.

If you can find "Ninjasaurus" someplace, you'll see what I mean.

And, I forget where you left this, but yes, I've friended myself now. :-)

I'm sure there are a lot of metaphors and sex jokes that go here. Be my guest.)

Yeah, Tom, I agree. I love how they condense and caricaturize (is that a word?) the classic ninja stuff. The expressions, the drops of sweat, the movement. And those teeny tiny arms and legs delivering the blows are just inherently funny.

I love the direction too --- the choices and framing of shots. Beautiful. They make me smile and laugh all the way through.

I'll go look for Ninjasaurus.
