New Time Slot for Sailor Moon!!!
Sailor Moon now has a new time slot on the Cartoon Network. The times are as follows:
||Mondays-Friday: 3:30 PM
||Mondays-Fridays: 2:30 PM
||Mondays-Fridays: 4:30 PM
||Mondays-Fridays: 3:30 PM
||Mondays-Fridays: 2:30 PM
||Mondays-Fridays: 1:30 PM
At this point in time these are the times Sailor Moon is to be shown. Previously it as shown at a different time on Mondays, but it has apparently changed, so now Sailor Moon is shown at the same time Monday-Friday. I suggest you check your local listings for time changes.
According to the Cartoon Network/Toonami website (found under Community, FAQ, FAQ #5, in Toonami's website, Click Here to view
) from the question "Does Toonami plan on showing new Sailor Moon Episodes?" it says that they hope to show every available Sailor Moon episode on Toonami, which leads me to believe that Sailor Moon will return to Toonami.
With the new time slot it makes it more difficult to see (since most people aren't home yet), and also makes it difficult to get more viewers, especially the audience that the English version is geared to, young elementary school aged children, most of whom do not get home until later. On the bright side Cartoon Network is showing the theme song before the show, which it hadn't done before.

The English dubbed version left in more then DiC did with the episodes but they continued calling the Senshi, Scouts, they replaced "Moon Revenge" with "The Power Of Love", and you miss seeing the begining of the movie were the Senshi and Chibi-Usa (Rini) are taking the bus. They did put in a new opening Music Video using "the Sailor Moon Theme Song" but with clips from the R movie, the S movie and the Super S movie.

"The Magic Tears Of Pokemon!"
[November 11~12 1999]
"Pokemon The First Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back" and the short preview film "Pikachu's Vacation" is now in theaters. It opened November 10, 1999 (Wednesday)in most theaters. If you got your tickets soon enough you could get one of the four special cards they were giving away.
I saw the movie on Nov. 11, 1999 (Thursday). I thought it was a great movie. Some of the new characters you get to see are, Marill (sometimes called Pikablu) which is a small mouse like creature that's blue and does water attacks, and a small pink creature whose name was Snubble, you also get to see Mewtwo and Mew. The film "Pikachu's Vacation" is about when pikachu, the rest of Ash's Pokemon, Misty's Pokemon, and Brock's Pokemon go to a Pokemon resort/themepark for a very short vacation. When they arrive all the Pokemon go off to do their own thing, leaving Pikachu, Bulbasaur, Psyduck, and Squirle to care for a very hungrey Togepi. They each take turns trying to make him stop crying, including Balbasuar singing a lulaby and the pokemon getting an aple down from a tree (which Psyduck eats before they can give it to Togepi).
After awhile a group of Pokemon come along (Raichu, Cubone, Marill, and Snubble). The two groups start arguing and end up competing in contests until Pika and Raichu get charazard mad, and believe me that wasn't a good thing to do. It goes on until It's time for the Pokemon to leave (I'm not going to give the whole thing away!)
Now for the main feature! The begining explains how Mewtwo came to be. Mewtwo is really angray that he is a clone of Mew, just his shadow, and an experiment. In revenge he uses his advanced psychic skills to destroy the lab. Before the lab is completely destroyed, a scientist says "We wanted to create the world's strongest Pokemon,... and we did".
Ash Misty and Brock are invited to New Island to compete against the world's greatest trainer. The trainer has gone down the wrong path and is evil. He clones pokemon in preporation to take over the earth. The reason he has invited Ash, and other trainers is he wants to clone their Pokemon. He than succeeds in capturing Pikachu and the other Pokemon. (To find out what happens you have to go see the movie!)
Some quotes from the movie: Meowth~ "If people start looking at what's the same instead of what's different... well I don't know"
Scientist~ "We wanted to create the world's strongest Pokemon,... and we did." Mewtwo~ "It doesn't matter where you where born from it's what's inside you that counts" (something like that)
