A brand new Earthworm Jim animated sequence is on the way in which, from Interaction and animation studio Ardour Photos. The tagline is Past the Groovy, the Groovy being Earthworm Jim’s ship, and the announce comes with an animated wanting Jim discussing the present. This sequence will in all probability be a bit just like the video games inasmuch because the teaser is kinda humorous at factors.
I do not know whether or not to admire or be irritated by Earthworm Jim’s persistence through the years. It is a sequence the place the most effective recreation was the primary, the joke kinda performed itself out, and it is struggled to remain related whereas by no means fairly dropping totally out of the image. A part of that’s Doug TenNapel’s nice design work on the character, and the actual fact it was so large within the ’90s (there have been Earthworm Jim motion figures in addition to an animated sequence) that there are intermittent bursts of exercise as people attempt to squeeze a little bit extra out of it: there’s even apparently a brand new recreation in improvement as an Intellivision Amico unique.
Trivia: Earthworm Jim was voiced within the ’90s cartoon by Dan Castellaneta, best-known as Homer Simpson.
