@XiaAsylum

Was it in english?
I get this "Allison and the Magic Bubble"

I couldn't find the link directly to hulu but here, http://www.imdb.com/video/hulu/vi2044501529/

I watched a few minutes of the middle and theres a brown haired boy and blond girl. There are supposed to be aliens but all I see is a fighter pilot scene.
I wanted a signature. I don't know what to put here yet.

i was thinking about stuff I watched in my childhood and I remembered a show I used to watch when I was small,
I believe it was anime, or anime style, although I didn't know it at the time, (so it was dubbed into English) but looking back it was quite clearly anime.
it revolved around a professor who had adventures, he had a computer that I think was an upright cylinder that was in his house, I also think it was green.
I specifically remember there was a female/feminine robot.
either the robot or the computer or both could/did print out things on small squares of paper.
I also think the professor has a sort of bouncing vehicle or pogo stick that he got around on.
would have been dubbed into English in the early to mid 90s at the very latest, but I don't remember the animation looking very dated, I doubt it was made before the mid 80s. but my memory isn't that clear so it might be older than that I guess.

Doctor Snuggles is the first thing that comes to mind, although the only things in common are a professor and a pogo stick...

I saw it a couple of times when I was younger. I don't remember too much, but I do remember this one short, "The Cat Came Back". I had nightmares for weeks.

Hi, I'm also after a show a saw many years ago, about a group of soldiers or hunters going back in time to hunt dinosuars and I think someone in the show stepped on a butterfly or some sort of bug and when they returned everyone was speaking a different language. I think it was a Twilight episode or mayby The outer Limits. Can anyone help me to find out what that show was, it's been on my mind for may years.

Looking for a link to a video I saw years ago: It was a stage play starring a ninja who would do comically ridiculous stunts by having the stage crew, dressed in black, carry him or the props around in a very obvious way. Every time he was about to do something he shouted WOOOOOSS! (rhymes with goose). Anyone?

That's the plot of Ray Bradbury's short story A Sound of Thunder. I found a television episode from 1989 which looks promising: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0683183/

I suppose that's possible, but I don't think it was kabuki. It was a parody...people were laughing

No, it's not kabuki, but there are nonetheless a good many Japanese theatrical productions along those lines.

Years ago when I was v.small and sick in bed on a day off I watched this film on T.V. I enjoyed it at the time, but I'd probably think it's the worst film ever made if I were to see it again, but I've thought of it a few times and always wondered what it was called...

It was a tear-jerker.
About a kid who's parents are getting divorced. The dad is clearly the better parent but the court awards the mother custody of the child.
The dad was a children's writer and had a kids series of books based around a dodo. Or, he was trying to get them published and got them published in the end...

I've googled a few times over the years but to no avail. Anyone have any ideas?

Noooooo not at ALL!!!

It was more like... An early 90's made for TV version of Kramer vs Kramer... I'm pretty sure the kid was a little girl, and the dad definitely wrote a kids book about a dodo!!

Now, my request is somewhat odd, as I'm not even sure if it's a real film - I know it's certainly not what my brain is trying telling me it is (which is Lord of The Rings).

If it is real, it's a musical movie in a similar style to LOTR. In the scene I remember, the Gndalf-alike has gathered a load of vllagers into a ruined fortress to explain something, but the ringwraith-alikes (maybe a dragon?) have tracked the ringbearer, who has baked the ring into a piece of coal, and can't find it becuse it's been given to the Legolas-alike by mistake. The "ringbearer" (who perhaps has a bit of a Harry Potter vibe going on) has fallen over, and manages to say "They're here" just as the attack arrives. As the villagers are being led out, one stops to complain to "Eowyn" that the local Lord has turned evil: something about how he used to give them shelter, there was always water and sometimes wine, and then the song. The lyrics I remember are "If it doesn't have meat then there's nothing on my plate". It's got a strong beat, and I seem to associate a Les Mis style step forward, stamp, step back, stamp faux-march with it.

If it is just my imagination, perhaps I should write it all down, it could be the next big thing.

It's a movie - from the 90s - from the perspective of a news station like CNN. Aliens come to explore the Earth and leave markers at the north and south pole. Jet fighters destroy the markers left by the aliens, which pissed them of. The return with a full force and then the film ends.

Other things he remembers: In the end, the reporters show photos of their loved ones, there's only a few lead characters and it's called something general, like 'Breaking News' or something similar.

That Hi, I'm looking for some movies and shows that have been in some back room of my mind :D for several years

First, the movies, (first and) last seen in the late 1980's:
  1. Not even sure if this is a single movie, or a mixture of several, but I remember a multiple supernova, dinosaurs and/or aliens on a present day farm and some domed city near the end.
  2. The second movie has an astronaut that was transported to the near future. Upon landing, the spaceship is damaged beyond repair, and the astronaut
    builds a personal assistant of sorts using pieces of the ship's computer on a transparent casing, that he carries hanging on his neck (a la Twiki/Dr.Theopolis).
    At the end, he manages to steal a second ship, and reproduce the accident, travelling back to his own time. The "personal assistant", however, does not survive the trip, because it was built in the future (I think this was a plot point, the second spaceship may have been the sister ship of the first)
  3. A malfunctioning spaceship, the protagonist has some argument with the ship AI, on the end is revealed that the computer is not an AI but the uploaded mind of a kid that wanted to travel to the stars. The protagonist merges with the computer via a device (does a "synaptic helmet" ring a bell?). The ship,computer and/or kid may have been called "Arcturus"

The shows, late 1990's to early 2000's:
  1. A Twilight Zone style show, presented by a CGI female robot
  2. A CGI short about a small bot (think WALL-E crossed with a street sweeper) on a museum, where one of the displays may have been labeled "The most dangerous object"

No, it couldn't have been a commercial, each episode was ~30 minutes, besides, the CGI part was only at the beginning and end of the episode, the rest was live action.

I have been trying to find a Terrytoons cartoon one shot about a musical opera. The play begins with a wolf in a butcher shop singing about a lack of meat, shoulder devil appears to get some milkmaids cow.
Fox gets cow, milkmaid calls on pig to get cow. battle ensues, etc. etc.
What is the name of this?
Here is one of the songs

My cow! My cow! My lovely cow!
Who will save my, who will save my lovely cow!
I'm on my way, to catch the thief!
Da da da before he turns to roast beef


Is this in a DVD collection? Or, could mysterious forces spirited it away?
I want to combine this with PDQ Bach!!!

I saw this movie on television, but I think it was one of those "premium" movie channels like HBO, Showtime, or The Movie Channel. It was probably about 10 to 15 years ago.

A man was traveling around in a desert. He met a young boy who lived alone in a house, and the boy was practicing shooting a handgun at his mailbox. The boy said his family was gone or dead, so he joined the traveling man. They were being pursued, or else they were pursuing, a villain that was referred to by some ambiguous name like The Man in Black or The Tall Man or something somewhat generic like that. There was a scene (I forgot if it was before or after the man met the boy) when the villain attacked the protagonist at night, near trees I think. The protagonist had a gun that was like a shotgun but I think it had four barrels. He would use this gun to shoot little dwarfs, or goblins, or trolls or whatever. The villain wouldn't actually attack, I think the little dwarfs just attacked for him. I remember thinking that this combat scene was intentionally made a little too badass, like the badassery was overdone for comic effect like in Army of Darkness, but maybe that was just my interpretation since I had a tendency to find comedy in everything in those days.

Nearer the end of the movie, the traveling man and his companion(s) (I think he and the boy also met a woman along the way) came to the villain's lair, a castle or tower of some kind. They entered the lair and began fighting their way through, but I stopped watching there.

I never knew the name of this movie, so I may not be able to immediately confirm if someone can give me the correct title.

Also, years after I had seen this, I heard someone describe to me the Dark Tower series by Stephen King. I thought it seemed very similar to this movie, but I heard that there was never a film adaptation of those books. Maybe there is an unofficial movie adaptation? Or maybe they are only superficially similar, just a thought.

EDIT: I did a bit of searching around, and it's very likely that I found the answer to my own query. Phantasm III. I found it by searching The Adjectival Man on TVTropes, but I might as well have searched for 4-barrelled shotgun, and the synopsis here even mentions that he kills dwarfs. Now I doubt I'll ever get the chance to watch the series.

The two I can't remember what are from one was an anime, they started the episode off suggesting stuff happened in the past he didn't want to drag his sisters into or something, then he's talks all pedo to a little girl and stands on his head as part of a bet then tells her her he can see up her dress or something. Then if i recall correctly he gets taken hostage or was already hostage to his teacher...

The other one I don't think was an anime, but had similar stying, I think it's title or title character had some dragon reference attached. The episode i wanted to see had two girls in it one emo, one peppy. they both had some sort of psychic or telepathic ability, and the emo could see all the best things and moments in life, and the peppy happy one saw the opposite. They explained it as something like "when you see is death and sadness 24/7, any little thing can make you happy" and vise versa, I just want to see the full clip or ep again so I can get the exact quote.

That would be episode one or two of Nisemonogatari, the sequel series to Bakemonogatari. Note that if you haven't watched the original, the sequel is likely to seem (a) confusing, and (b) disturbing with its scenes like that, or the ones with Shinobu ... (For reference, the little girl - Mayoi Hachikuji - isn't all she seems. But then, neither are most of the characters.)

Ok, this has been stuck in my head for some time. I was a cartoon I watched 16 years ago I think. It was about a machine that combined bugs and inanimate objects into anthropomorphic creatures. There were two of these machines, one for the good guys and one for an evil professor/magician person. The good guys were a team of 3 or 4 of these lifeforms, one of which could control electricity and was called Volta (or something similar), I believe.

Bit vague, but does anyone know what I'm talking about.

The only bug-mecha show I can think of is Big Bad Beetleborgs, but that wasn't animated.

Nope, neither of those. It wasn't really mecha either, they weren't robots and roughly adult-sized

Heres one thats been bugging me for a while.

A cartoon I watched in australia around 2000. It involved 4(i think) different planets fighting against some evil force. The planets had engines and could move through space.

Any ideas?
