This week, I review a cartoon for preteen goth girls at AIPT

And my cartoon review for the week over at AIPT is a show I wasn't expecting to like, but hey.

Ruby Gloom, a Canadian cartoon based on the mascot of a T-shirt company.

Flash (or Toon Boom) animated shows from Canada usually aren't that great ("aren't that great" is a polite way of saying "Johnny Test"), and being based off of a corporate mascot didn't help to make it any more enticing.  But the show was surprisingly fun.  Very cute, but the gothic graveyard vibe helped offset that element enough to be palatable instead of saccharine. 

Anyway, I'll try to post a Turtle article or two before the weekend.  Mutanimals #2 and New Animated Adventures #21 should be out on Wednesday.
