    Yes, I remeber this catoon, here in Mexico we used to watch that shit, in fact, sometimes it was so boring and somethings was interesting, but it brings great memories of childhoud and it doesn’t compares with the movie. HAPPY NEW YEAR JAMES Y MIKE, GREETINGS FROM MEXICO!!!

    Mike, you’re pointing out plotholes in a cartoon that happens to be based on a movie where people slowly fade away from a photo simultanously set to when someone alters history so that they’re not born. Do I need to point out what is wrong with this?

  • January 2, 2012 at 12:58 am

    Damn it, Mike. Even motherfuckers should spend a little time on research before reviewing something.

    A “melvin” is a frontal wedgie. He’s saying people would always give him an aluminum wedgie from the front. Not a boner.

    The kids are saying “because his brain’s on Venus”. It seemed pretty clear to me.

    None of the examples you gave actually break the fourth wall. In order to do that, the characters would have to admit they’re cartoon characters, or speak directly to the audience.


    • MotherFucker Mike

      January 2, 2012 at 2:22 am

      @ClevelandRock I know a melvin is a wedgie, and I know the kids are probably saying Venus. It just sounds like it could be “penis” the way they’re saying it. It’s just a joke.

      As for the fourth wall, the characters are making fun of the fact they are always meet another Biff or Marty in another century as though they’re aware they’re in strongly contrived show. If they know they’re in a show, then it’s breaking the fourth wall. That’s how I saw it anyhow.

      • Cyberxion

        January 2, 2012 at 12:31 pm

        @MotherFucker Mike@ClevelandRock Was it supposed to be a joke when you said you played it several times and still heard penis? It’s just that at that point, it kind of tipped over the scale and became kind of…contrived.

  • milton05

    January 2, 2012 at 1:04 am

    The deal with knowing what electricity is possible to explain it with some info from the movie, since in the movie people slowly fade away from a photo simultanously when someone alters history, so it could be said that changes are do not happen right away, that is how Marty may have the idea of electricity. By the way, I remember watching this cartoon as a kid here in my country.

  • Chris Smells

    January 2, 2012 at 1:07 am

    I loved this show as a kid. All these errors and such are obvious now but as a kid you don’t tend to over think anything. Just just want to see some action and fart jokes.

    It seemed this was a heavy “edutainment” time, with shows like Captain Planet and Widget the World Watcher being out around the same time all having facts intergrated into the show. Which I remember I hated.

    Bill Nye the science guy was awesome and I remember trying as many of these as I could as well as the ones he taught on his show.

    Ah memories

    Talk about pathetic…nothing more entertaining then grown man children getting upset at plot holes for a television show targeted to kids. I mean seriously guys, I agree, the voice actors who happened to be the real live action movie actors should have spoken up about the contradictions in relation to the movies. I sure hope someone got fired for that one!

    • metalcommand

      January 2, 2012 at 2:12 am

      @jimjones If you think it’s ‘pathetic’ that James does, then why the hell are you on this site? They talk about dvd – menus that suck, movies that suck, board games that suck, games that suck…..

    • NightWalker990

      January 2, 2012 at 2:32 am

      @jimjones “nothing more entertaining then grown man”? Apparently, you should be more worried about your “pathetic” excuse for English. Correction: “Nothing more entertaining than grown men”. Before insulting the creators of Cinemassacre, please learn proper English and have relevant accomplishments (such as owning a website). Every Human being is entitled to their own opinions, but you did not have to offend Mike and James, primitive filth.

  • AaronWomack

    Thanks for the review Mike!

    This series may hold a place in the BTTF canon-line, like how Doc got the Delorean back in the Telltale game, he built another one, why of course!

    • JamesHerider

      January 2, 2012 at 3:20 am

      @AndreanneAndiDion If you’ve played the game you know that the Delorean was a temporal duplicate made at the exact same time that the Delorean got struck by lightning. While the original was sent to 1885 the duplicate was sent to 2025. Doc traced the temporal distortion created by that Delorean, retrieved it with the Time train, fixed it, and improved upon it putting an automatic return on it for just such an emergency that happens at the beginning of the Telltale game.

      • AndreanneAndiDion

    Mike Matei did a fantastic job here. Content-wise, this is one of the best videos yet, regardless of host. Such an excellent variety. I usually feel that Mike relies too much on his script, which is a shame because he is great in every one of the unscripted videos he’s in. While that overreliance was still the case here, the scripting and organization were top notch. The video had a very natural flow, which isn’t exactly common. VERY well done.

    I remember when this aired on TV. Funny you didn’t bring up the future space episodes and how absurd that reality would be… and who’d be named “Ziff”? I do agree that the PeeWee episode does ignore a fundamental moral from the BTTF movies and I felt that way at the time too but I feel there is far more that could’ve been commented on or analyzed as a best/worst episode for those reasons. Don’t you think even going into the Cretaceous/Jurassic era even for a moment would cause untold damage to evolution on this world? And the power going out episode, You need to do more research on quantum mechanics and timestream mechanics and impacts. The further back in time you go, no matter how small the change, it can be far more devastating a thousand years ago than a major change 30 years go. Jeez, and you call yourselves nerds…

  • barlitone

    January 2, 2012 at 3:50 am

    The Boston Beaneaters existed from 1883 to 1906. While it’s true that there is a team known as the Orioles now, and they’re in the same league as the current Boston team, they only coexisted from 1902 – 1906, and during that time the Orioles were actually the St. Louis Browns. However, there *was* an American Association team called the Orioles from 1882-1899, located in Baltimore. From 1892 – 1899, they were in the National League… just like the Boston Beaneaters (now the Atlanta Braves) were.

    So… did the cartoon get it right by picking an old Boston team that was in the NL, and showed them playing a game against another AA or NL team, the Orioles? Or did they get it wrong, choosing a current American League team (the current Baltimore Orioles, formerly the St. Louis Browns) to play against the Boston team, which is now in the American league?

    Either they got it right, or they got it wrong but by an amazing coincidence it looked right. The world may never know.

  • January 2, 2012 at 5:37 am

    I barely remember any of the stories from this cartoon, but one thing that always bothered me is the fact that they always seemed to have relatives in the past in ANY area of the world they traveled.

    Also, I knew I heard Doc Brown say “Jumping Gigawatts”, but after watching all three movies several times over the last year I was starting to doubt myself and thought maybe I had false memories. This review confirms my sanity!

    loved this episode I remembered watching this as a kid and I had the same damn problem with some of the experiments. I’d set there and go “seriously where the hell am I supposed to get copper tubing you assholes!”, but for all of its flaws the series was pretty good until I watched the actual movies and went “wow these are so much better”

  • ColeRothacker

    January 2, 2012 at 9:12 am

    Good review Mike. But I did have one question, and I think it’s an interesting thought: The morals of BttF are to not use time travel for personal gain. But isn’t that what the entire plot of the first movie is about? Marty changes his life in that movie, completely alters the reality he knew his whole life, because George punched Biff. Maybe Zemeckis and Gale tried to make up for that in the second movie? Hmm.

    Bob Gale was an executive producer for this cartoon, which makes the mistakes even more baffling.

    Also, the slang “tossed salad” is not known to everyone in America, as this video implies.

  • Kenshiroh

    I’ve seen some websites (such as IMDB) claim that this show marks Bill Nye’s first appearance on TV, which is not true. He was on Almost Live before that, and I think he had made some appearances on Letterman.

    No offense, but I don’t think you seem to know what breaking the fourth wall is. It’s when a character actually acknowledges that they’re in a TV show or that they’re a fictional character. Not one of the clips you use as examples is a proper example. If anything, they’re cases of irony or lampshade-hanging.

    They said “…because his brain’s on Venus!”. Also…tossed salad is a thing and doesn’t just have sexual connotations, so it’s kind of a stretch to imagine that the writers threw that in to get one over on the censors. Also, watch Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey if you want to know what a Melvin is, ’cause it aint a boner…

      @Colby Hey cockwad ;-) ;-)

      Yeah, because picking apart a 20 plus year old nintendo game makes a lot more sense. Part of the humor of the AVGN is how ridiculus it is for a grown man to be complaining about such an old, outdated game. Mike is keeping in true Cinemassacre tradition here, picking apart an old cartoon. OF COURSE it’s pointless. That’s the humor of it. Bai ;-)

        @MurrayBlass@Colby I understand the vein of humor he was using. And the first 70% of the video was entertaining and funny. It was just the end where he kept saying the same thing about scenario after scenario… No need to get feisty, “cockwad”

  • January 2, 2012 at 2:48 pm

    I went through and watched the Bill & Ted animated series last year, and they had the same continuity problems. Changing the course of history, changing their dads’ lives, and absolutely no mention of “The clock in San Dimas is always running.” I think the problem is that these cartoons were mostly just a way to make money, and therefore they churned them out as fast as they could without worrying about continuity. And I wouldn’t expect Tom Wilson to speak up, he was probably just trying to make money himself.

    I felt like this review was a little too long, mostly because you tried to cover too many things. Your recreation of the experiment at the end was funny.

    • FrankCabanski

    You’re a great guy and have been a HUGE help to James, I highly enjoy your video game glitches videos, but these random cartoon and movie reviews just aren’t funny or interesting to me.

    When you and James review something TOGETHER, its so funny because the dynamic between you guys is great. I highly enjoy James’ reviews because his personality and sense of humor is exactly what I enjoy… James is an angry nerd and I love that.

    I know no one is making me watch these videos and I can just ignore them. I just wanted to give my opinion and express that while I appreciate your efforts Mike, I much prefer seeing videos from James. Thank you.

  • fratzenjeballer

    January 3, 2012 at 6:44 am

    Well, I got mixed feelings about this. First of all its a nice Review no doubt, it covers the Series very well and gives a lot of infos.

    But I think the problem might be that Mike tried to review the series in a style very similar to James’s. And of course the problem are the Fans aswell. Most of them are so fixated on James they accept only him on the Frontpage. Thats a sad thing course Mike has potential.

    Well Mike, maybe you should try a completly other style of reviewing things than Jame and some Fan should stop acting like dicks course the object of their fixation didnt bless them with another piece attention. (I know its a bit harsh but thats the way i see it)

    PS: Sry for any mayor mistake in my english

  • thegrimlord

    January 3, 2012 at 7:26 am

    The only part that made no sense was when Mike said “Is this the message they are sending to children? That changing the future is okay?” lol What kind of a message would that be? It’s like telling the children that eating the Moon is okay. What can they do with that info? Teaching the children that changing the future is bad also had no sense, because (at least for now) it is not possible, and even if it was, God knows what principles it works on. Teaching kids useless stuff that they can’t do won’t do them no harm. Teaching children that jumping into wells would take them to a magical place, could.

  • Big McLargehuge

    January 3, 2012 at 9:40 am

    Just to clear up to all the commentators, a melvin is NOT really a wedgie. A wedgie is pulling the underwear from the back, wedging your underwear in your ass crack. A melvin is pulled from the front, and is meant to crush your balls.

    Seriously guys don’t be so hard on him. James has been making videos since forever and he’s got his own style that we know and love. Mike on the other hand is just starting out and since he seems good friends with James I think it’s normal that his videos are similar.

    Personally, I find his videos very refreshing and full of energy. He’ll figure out his own way to do his reviews, just give him some time.

    Interesting to see reviews of cartoon I haven’t seen before. Tho be good to get up some captian N or Video power on this site.. Whether James or Mike does it.. I do like Mike’s more imformative approach but perhaps the delivery of the jokes come off as a little too scripted n dry? Prob due to the way he does the audio(I’m guessing record each video segment and does an audio bite individually for each video slice then glues it all together) so every sentence sounds like a very tight beginning and end, little snippet, generating the same tones and pitch changes for every sentence, rather than a more fluent conversational kind of sounding audio.Think the content of the audio is fine, it’s just the delivery needing some work. Maybe make some aspects sound more like mike is discovering a thought along with the reader while doing the review, like thinking aloud during a real conversation. Give the review a bit more life and realisim/2 way communication vibe too it.P.S If Mike is just doing this to keep content up on the site, rather than cause this is something he REALLY wants to do, perhaps mike could endenvour on something thats more his style(Could be anything), or even a production VLOG of the movie james is doing.Cheers,

    Only annoying thing on every Cinemassacre video is that the “Frankenstein Monster” always has to be pointed out and called that. Nobody cares, it will forever be for now on just Frankenstein when you see the tall lanky monster with bolts coming out of his neck, huge forehead and platform boots.

    • MotherFucker Mike

      @Galvaknight I wasn’t pointing out anything about the monsters name. I said the look of the monster (the classic green make up from the universal franchise) would not have existed in the Christmas Carol era for a child’s toy.

  • Lanlost

    January 4, 2012 at 1:25 am

    Looks like while James is working hard Motherfucking Mike is officially the one taking over.

    It was either this or NO content, and in all honesty, we all like Mike better anyway. Ok, so that’s not a fair statement at all and completely a joke.

    But really though James, you couldn’t have picked a better person to be doing videos during your ‘hiatus.’ Good luck on the movie. We will all be crazy excited if you come out with a single episode of AVGN sometime in the next few months. I know you probably can’t do it even if you wanted to (You’ve been doing it since, what, 2004?) but when you start you would probably find yourself getting caught up in it. In that sense, while the episode will probably be fun and great as usual, it’s probably something you CAN’T get caught up in.. and we all understand that.

    If you make one, please don’t focus on trying to make it funny. People always say that your older videos were better and funnier. I don’t believe this to be the case though. I honestly believe it’s because instead of it being a big production you focused on all the details of the game itself. I never found the cursing all that funny, and I curse like a fucking sailor. What I loved were the type of observations that Mofo’in Mike makes in his glitch videos. That’s what all the episodes have to offer, in my opinion, they just seemed to come more in the older ones because there WASN’T much besides it. There have been a few times, however, that I’ve literally fallen out of my seat with things you’ve said though, so the humor doesn’t hurt. I’m NOT critsizing anything about the videos, I just think that the reasons people dislike certain things about them and claim the older ones are better are a case of a) people tending to forget the thigns they didn’t like and enhance the good aspects in their mind AND b) miss what makes the videos good in the first place.

    So yeah, good luck on whatever you are doing. We will be waiting, excited. And no pressure to get a wide theatrical release or anything because I doubt it will happen, unless there are the EXACT RIGHT combination of events happening. We WILL be happy to even have it on DVD though so if you get a small indie release in the theater we will be ESTACTIC. Seeing AVGN in the theater would make me actually pretty emotional, even though I’m not a fan boy, just because I know it will mean you realizing a life long dream. How could that NOT make anyone really happy?

    So GO GO GO!

    You know the whole ‘Going back in time and changing history teaches bad morals’ is kind of a moot point. I mean how many kids are going to travel back in time and selfishly change history?

    Also those double entendres were probably not what you thought they were. For instance ‘Tossed Salad’, Marty threw a head of lettuce at that Biff guy right? He threw it and lettuce goes in a salad. Tossed Salad. Secondly that kid plays a ‘Pretty Mean Flute’. I doubt he was talking about his penis.

    Lastly those kids weren’t singing ‘Because his heads a penis’. If you listen closely they say ‘Because his heads on venus’.

    To be honest this wasn’t very funny. The beginning just reminded me of someone who looks at Disney cartoons trying to spot all the shapes that look like penises. Also it’s a kids cartoon. Half the things that take place were probably written in a hurry and they weren’t aiming for accuracy and I doubt they cared all that much for continuity between the movies and the show.

    • Maoist Rebel

      January 4, 2012 at 9:11 am

      @JordanRayLittle Its not about traveling back to the past. Its about changing history to suit your personal profit, like writing new textbooks in Texas erasing leftist leaders and re-writing events to push a positive view of slavery. Its about altering things to suit your personal profit. Its dishonest.

        @Maoist Rebel@JordanRayLittle MaoistRebel is right. Politicians and people in power have the power to change history without a time machine. Simply because a book or a person tells you a fact…doesn’t mean its true. Second or third hand information has a tendency to be altered.

    This is a cartoon I never watched for some reason I still don’t understand. I loved the movies as a child, I would have loved the cartoon for sure, but I don’t even remember hearing about it until many years later.

    I agree with the fact that the show writers screwed by having Marty going back in time, changing history for personal gain and not suffering any consequences afterwards, it breaks the lessons Marty learnt in the movies (And frankly, having Marty causing a paradox and forcing him to fix it again would have made a cool episode, they were just being lazy).

    My time for being nerdy: I notice that they changed the fact that the time machine could only travel through time, not space (they went from Hill Valley to ancient Rome?), in the movies it always stays in Hill Valley. Also the Delorean’s time circuits from the movies only have enough digits to enter 4 digit years, which means the machine couldn’t travel that far in time to see dinosaurs.

    Being nitpicky aside, this cartoon looks like it was fun for the kids and even educational. I should try to find it and watch it sometime, for the sake of loving the BTTF franchise :P

    Good Job, Mike. I liked your review of Robo Vampire, but I think is cool that you’re reviewing nostalgic cartoons too.

In the cartoon (I forget which episode it was) They get stuck in the past because they don’t have enough electricity to get the flux capacitor working. They use a lemon and it works to send them back to the present..

    A fucking LEMON

    What happened to needing a lightning bolt or radioactive plutonium???

    I can understand that you’re trying to accentuate the negative like James does, and I can also definitely see where you’re coming from, but you’re grasping at straws with some of these problems. The whole Frankenstein thing? The thing that maybe 4 other people total noticed? No kid would’ve recognized it had they not used that design.

    other than that, this is actually a really good look at the series. There are a lot of continuity errors yeah, but I think of this show along with the game more as a “what if?” scenario. When I do that, it’s makes them both a lot more enjoyable.

    actually in time travel and electricity. if he undid electricity and went to the same timeline he came from. they would know what electricity is, but they would also have electricity anyway. they wouldnt know about electricity if he returned back to present to new timeline (which current knowledge of physics would indicate).

    James is busy, he’s giving Mike the job of filling in for the reviews and keep the site flowing with new contents while the AVGN Movie is being made.

    And still there’s a bunch of people dissing Mike for “not being up to James’ task”. I admit I’m not a big fan of Mike’s nasal voice but cut him some slack, men!

    I bet that if the uploads on the site stopped suddenly most of you would lament it, now you get somebody to break his ass on it and you complain.

    Seriously, go somewhere else if you don’t like it, or just watch the old videos to pass time, I dunno, just stop being the usual whiny users because “Mike is not up to the job”! Go do the same yourself if you think you’re better, everyone’s a critic, yadda yadda you know the drill.

    The first battery found by archeological means are over 6000 years old, found in modern day Iraq, and it was most likely used or elektrolytic purposes when separating gold and other metals from other byproducts. Electricity was thus NOT invented by Franklin, or even discovered.

      @Voorhees I tried to watch Beakman’s World back in the day and couldn’t stand it. After getting a refresher from YouTube, it’s still painful to watch. What kid would feel smart or inspired by science by watching a dimwit in a rat costume ham it up with a somewhat less dimwitted guy in a lime green labcoat? Bill Nye might not have been perfect, but I think it focused more on science and less on cringe-inducing humor.

Also, I liked hearing your thoughts about the overlaps between the cartoon and the movies, such as Marty’s idea to make bets with Gray’s Sports Almanac and his problem with being called a coward.

    Holy hell, I didn’t even know there WAS a Back to the Future animated series.

    You can tell that the creators of the cartoon really worshipped the movies because they had fucking Christopher Lloyd and they borrowed heavily from things in the films, so I agree that they have no excuse whatsoever to screw up the characters.

    From watching this, I noticed that the Back to the Future game from Steam looks a lot like the way these characters were drawn. Kind of weird.

    Benjamin Franklin didn’t “invent” electricity. You can’t “invent” something that exists by nature. Franklin didn’t even discover electricity, since it was already pretty well discovered by Franklin’s time. Franklin just found a way to harness and use it practically. (In a manner that did not involve him flying a kite.)

    Just wanna point out that those kids are saying “Because his brain’s on venus!” Personally, I was too young to see the show so I’m lacking context. But there’s a saying about how men are from mars and women are from venus… maybe they’re just calling him girly (or possibly gay). Or they could be implying that he’s from a different planet (weird).

    All of the inconsistencies are a clear sign of historical ignorance, a lack of research, and some greedy executives just wanting to cash in on the popularity of the film trilogy; they did the same thing to Rambo and Robocop in the 80s. I remember watching this on CBS on Saturday mornings; I was a big BTTF fan and still am but typically I grew bored with this show because there wasn’t enough going on involving Doc, Marty, and the DeLorean. Typically I was just waiting for something better to come on like Garfield & Friends or Pee Wee’s Playhouse.

    Both this and the Bill and Ted cartoon are shows that I should have loved as a kid, but still found incredibly stupid. I would have to say that my absolute favorite cartoon from my childhood is The Real Ghostbusters. Several of those episodes were actually scary, especially the ones with the Bogeyman and Samhain! It is great when a Saturday Morning cartoon can be serious and entertaining at the same time. Ninja Turtles is a close second, but even that show was overly silly most of the time. It is too bad that cable has all but destroyed the concept of Saturday Morning cartoons…

    Very enjoyable review, brought me back to some good memories. Though by the logic of your disappointments you shouldn’t be happy about this show all together. Doc had good reason to destroy the Delorean. Of course he shows up at the end with a time traveling choo choo. It was a Saturday morning cartoon. You can’t really expect to much from it. Also I think Tom Wilson was probably just fine with cashing checks and didn’t feel the need to mention any continuity errors. Though the whole Doc not knowing Marty in the 60′s is a pretty bad one, even for a cartoon to make.

    If Christopher Lloyd did those live action bits which required him getting into costume and shooting the scenes, why would they NOT use him as the voice in the cartoon?! I’m sure live acting costs way more than voice acting. It’s not like you couldn’t convince him to do it, he did voice acting for Robot Chicken as Dr. Brown!! I hate when Hollywood does that shit. Rather than make something really good, lets cut corners and make the dumbest piece of shit that will piss of fans and event eventually be the demise of the show. That was a big thing back in the day, but I think they are starting to get it. Just like shitty games LJN made. I’m thinking it was all the coke from the 80′s.

Well since it was priced the same as the movies along on blu-ray I can’t say anything about them be freebies.
