Okay, so I'm one of those idiots who liked Underdog. I'm also one of the idiots who went to see The Smurfs before Cowboys And Aliens. I paid to see Beverly Hills Chihuahua, damnit! I like talking animals. It's a sad thing to admit, I know, but it is what it is. I even saw the Garfield sequel...the SEQUEL!

Anyway, what I'm getting at is that I'll probably be in line the day this comes out with a big ass smile on my face.

After his work in the Shrek films and even back as the dragon in Mulan, Eddie Murphy seems like a perfectly acceptable replacement for Scatman Crothers. I am happy for this.

Well, it has the makings of another kick to the testicles of my childhood.

But having said that, though, Eddie Murphy is actually a reason for optimism. His animated pedigree is a lot better than his "movies that require a fat suit" pedigree.

Eddie Murphy's always been kinda high octane compared to Hong Kong Phooey. This will be interesting.

So, in other words "Kung Fu Panda" with a dog?

Didn't he drive a little buggy that looked like a Chinese temple?

I do remember liking the gimmick of the cat quietly doing all the work, while an oblivious Hong Kong Phooey took all the credit. Pretty cool theme song as well.
