Surely this is a dupe?
I'd forgotten about this.
-1 for dupe. Loved this series, the animation still holds up.
Still looks good.
This cartoon was better than either movie.
I watched the fuck outta this.

Men in Black is one of those things you forget was pretty good.
The same goes for the cartoon, but not the sequel.
I liked Filthy Critic's take on Men in Black 2:
And so they would split a bag of pull-tabs. Pull-tabs are like primitive lottery scratch tickets. Rather than rub off that silver shit, you pull on tabs to reveal whether you won or lost. In a bag, I think there were 300 pull-tabs. You could buy one for a buck and hope for some cash. You could buy ten for ten bucks and improve your chances. But everyone knew that for every 300 tabs, there would only be $250 in prizes. The Lodge made $50 for "charity." Rather than worry about prizes, BooBoo and Wayne would give the barkeep fifty bucks, she'd hand over the bag and the two of them would just start pulling. They knew it was stupid, but they were bored and not creative enough to think of anything else to do until closing time when they'd go into the parking lot and call each other fags.
That's how Men in Black II is. You pay your money, you get a quantifiable dose of mindless entertainment that is less than paid. When it's over, it's all easily be swept into the trash bin never to be thought of again. That's not to say this is a terrible movie, because it's as competent and efficient as a good washing machine. Tip to tail, it's only 88 minutes long and, better still, it only feels like 84. The problem is that not only does it mean nothing, it's supposed to mean nothing, created to disappear as quickly as a dry fart in the high desert.
One of those cartoons that was pretty good despite having no right to be. I ain't checked, but I'll bet my comment on the old version is pretty much the same.
I liked this show, though I thought at the time (and still do) that there wasn't a whole lot of difference in character design between the aliens and the ghosts from "The Real Ghostbusters."
This looked pretty well done.
I fucking looooove this intro.
