You know what shocks me. That according to the video description down at the bottom of the video, there have been three Kung-Fu Panda clones. And the other two can't have been nearly as bad as the one that was reviewed, a film so god awful that it barely deserves to be named. So instead watch Whyboy's review of the film in his Cartoon Corner series to see if it's really as bad as I've made it be (the movie, not Cartoon Corner): http://manicexpression.webs.com/apps/videos/videos/show/17149484-cartoon-corner-chop-kick-panda-review
So congratulations Whyboy. Now, onto the blogs:

Nostalgia is a funny thing, and it isn't as good as it use to be. But week after week pbmiranda has been looking at classic 90s Nickelodeon television, the good and the bad. Thus leading to the ultimate conundrum: Was it really that good, or do we look back too fondly to really notice its faults? Has nostalgia blinded us, or does it still hold up today? Well read the blog and find out: http://manicexpression.webs.com/apps/blog/show/19226918-90-s-nickelodeon-classic-or-overrated-
