Since this is our first edition for the year, let’s start this our review season with some light-hearted fun.
Long Gone Gulch is a brand new animated series whose first episode dropped on Monday.
Directed by Zach Bellissimo and Tara Billinger, the Wild West-themed show follows two small-town sheriffs – the idealistic Rawhide and her delinquent partner Snag – who work hard to keep their home safe from the many monsters, bandits and other outlaws that surround it.
Everything about this series is great. The cast is strong and contains many veteran voice actors.
The two main characters are voiced by Elizabeth Daily and Danny Cool respectively. Daily is probably most famous for voicing Buttercup in the original Powerpuff Girls cartoons while Cool has an extensive acting resume stretching all the way back to 1978.
They are joined by Amber Midthunder as the enigmatic bounty hunter BW, Myke Chilian as the town’s long-suffering Mayor Rhubarb and Eric Bauza as the villanious bandit Mako.
The animation is also superb. It manages to be highly energetic while remaining simplistic enough that it’s never hard to tell what’s going on.
It’s completely hand-drawn which makes the team’s accomplishments that much more impressive.
The show is aimed at mostly young audience so while it does have its share of cartoon action, it never goes beyond PG levels so viewers of all ages can enjoy the fun.
If you’re a fan of light-hearted action and cartoons, then this is definitely worth checking out.
Long Gone Gulch is available to watch on YouTube.
