Streaming services

“Futurama” is returning yet again, this time for an 11th season that’ll air on Hulu.

Kizazi Moto: Generation Fire” is a pan-African animated anthology featuring Afrofuturism and other elements. It looks like we’ll get a creative mix of different animation styles and story elements. Here’s the trailer:

Disney+ is bringing to its streaming service some of the classic Disney animated shorts. Why they haven’t put all of the shorts on Disney+ (the way they have for almost all of the animated feature films), I have no idea. Especially since the Disney Treasures DVDs (a DVD series collecting every Mickey Mouse, Goofy, Donald, and Pluto short) are out of print.

Meanwhile, the “Secret Invasion” Marvel series continues on Disney+, tacky AI opening title sequence and all.

On the Warner Bros. side, the latest Superman animated series (featuring a Black version of Jimmy Olsen), “My Adventure with Superman,” launches this month on Max. The show for some reason includes a number of non-Superman-related villains, including early Justice League foe Professor Anthony Ivo, who A) is one of the few superhero comic characters to go by “Anthony” and not “Tony,” and B) is more obscure than his own creation, Amazo (the android with all the powers of the JLA). Another thing about this show: it’s branded as an Adult Swim series. Granted, Adult Swim now occupies a hefty amount of its channel’s broadcast day. As of this fall, Adult Swim will run from 6 PM (ET) to 6 AM, giving it as much airtime as Cartoon Network.

Based on the material streaming services have purged with zero notice in June alone, I assume there’ll be even more stuff quietly removed in July for cost-cutting reasons. “Bonus” points if it’s content that has no physical or digital media releases available. “Yay?” Meanwhile, I note my Plex setup (based on my DVD collection) is running just fine.


The Women’s World Cup takes place in late July through late August. While English coverage is split between Fox (over-the-air) and FS1 (cable), Spanish coverage is available on Telemundo or Peacock. I’m not sure how much that will help boost Peacock’s anemic subscriber numbers (at 21 million as of March), but we’ll see.
