For many kids of the ‘90s, the best toons were Nicktoons. Rugrats, Doug (before Disney took it down way too many pegs), Aaahh!! Real Monsters, CatDog. While all of these were great and complemented Nickelodeon’s even superior live action series at the time, there was no greater animated series that touched closer to home for some than Hey Arnold!

His story may have been a bit like Batman, but the story was all Marvel. After Hiro Hamada’s brother Tadashi dies in an explosion caused by an evil scientific mastermind, he uses his brother’s large inflatable health aid and his friends to fight crime and find the kabuki mask-wearing villain. That’s what happened in 2014 in Disney’s blockbuster Big Hero 6.

In fact, it turns out it may not be true. This series is Infinity Train. Continue reading Best Geeky Finds – Will We Wait an Infinity?
