TDMTLTUT: Earthworm Jim
Jim then got the cartoon show and I was pretty excited. As a grown-up I've gotten used to seeing things I like in one medium get transferred to another pretty regularly, I guess it's part of being a comic book fan, but back then it was a new sensation to me. I would get to scrutinize something for the first time. Would it keep things from the game? Would it change the stuff I like? Luckily I was never disappointed. Yeah, those disappointments came later in life. I'm looking at you Spider-man 3.
The show only got two seasons and little or no syndication over the years. As time went on I learned to appreciate a lot about the show. For one, Jim himself was voiced by non other than Dan Castellaneta (that's Homer Simpson for you folks who don't pay attention much). I've forgotten way more than I remember but one thing I still get stuck in my head from time to time is the epic theme tune.
If you don't sing along you're a robot.
