Must-See Animation: Sym-Bionic Titan
Oh Genndy Tartakovksy, is there anything that you can't make ultra-cool?
Tartakovksy, who previously brought us such top-notch animation as Dexter's Laboratory, The Powerpuff Girls, Samurai Jack and the early episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, is currently rocking the Friday night schedule of Cartoon Network with his latest creation, Sym-Bionic Titan. Titan is clearly influenced by other big 'bot cartoons from Japan such as Ultraman, Gigantor and Voltron, but Tartakovksy adds enough of his own visual and satirical sensibilities to the series to make it something genuinely new and unique to this sub-genre of animation. Like Samurai Jack before it, it's also one of the most cinematic and picturesque weekly animated series you'll ever see.
