Star vs. the Forces of Evil

Episode: The Banagic Incident
Banagic Ice Cream

Star vs. the Forces of Evil promises a little weird, a little wild, and a good time. I’d have to say it delivers. If a magic-wielding, monster-fighting princess from another dimension living as a foreign exchange student on Earth doesn’t fit that description, I don’t know what does. How does this even happen anyway? Well, Star isn’t what one would call a “typical princess.” She’s reckless and irresponsible and sets her kingdom on fire shortly after receiving a great family heirloom, The Royal Magic Wand. Her parents send her to Earth to train and she takes up residence in the Diaz household. This was done as a safety measure, but Star still finds plenty of ways to get into trouble. When she’s not narwhal blasting some ill-intentioned monsters or cutting her way into other dimensions, she’s got to handle everyday life in a place she knows nothing about.

Star lives a pretty exciting life, but even she isn’t safe from boredom. (It’s her biggest fear.) She was going to have to renounce her vow to never have a dull day until she saw a magazine ad for The Banagic Wand. It’s one of those “As Featured on TV” products that you see in those late night commercials. “Designed by leading freeze-ologists, The Banagic Wand uses state-of-the-art molecular ice-stronomy to frostulate your sizzle zones and chill you out.” (It makes banana ice cream.) Star can’t resist this “Earth Magic” and insists on immediately finding a “Better Store” where it’s sold. (Supplies are limited.) But Marco refuses to skip his karate class, so Star’s on her own. She wasn’t doing too badly until she mistook the staff of a pirate-themed restaurant for real pirates and trashes the place. They chase her all the way to the store and corner her right in front of The Banagic Wands. Star tells them that they need to “chill out,” so everyone does just that. Banagic Wand Party at Marco’s house!

Recipe makes one 2-cup serving

Ingredients

4 ripe bananas

Yellow food coloring

Directions

Peel and thinly slice the bananas. Freeze the banana slices for at least two hours. Place the frozen banana slices in a food processor. Blend, occasionally scraping down the sides of the processor, until the bananas become creamy. Add a little yellow food coloring and blend a few more seconds. Scrape out of the food processor. (You can fill a piping bag with the banana ice cream and pipe into a bowl to give it more of a soft serve look.)  Enjoy immediately!

StarvstheFOEStarvstFOE Ban

Star completes her quest, conquers her boredom, and feels like she’s mastered Earth. Marco is impressed and admits that he underestimated her. Star’s not too happy to hear that though and she pushes Marco’s Banagic ice cream out of his hands. I wasn’t surprised that Star found a Banagic Wand, but I was surprised that it actually worked. I’ve gotten sucked in by enough infomercials to know that they can’t all be trusted. Well Banagic Wand or not, banana ice cream is pretty magical. “I’m totally chilled out!”

Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Cookies

Who Framed Roger Rabbit is a “story of greed, sex, and murder” and cartoons! That sounds like one entertaining movie, huh? “You’d better believe it, buster.” Here’s the scenario: a cartoon rabbit named Roger, whose whole purpose in life is to make people laugh, has been accused of murder and the only guy who can clear Roger Rabbit’s name and save him from a vat of Judge Doom’s Dip is a booze-drinking, toon-hating, private investigator named Eddie Valiant. Think film noir but with cartoons. And boy, does this have cartoons! This movie is jammed-packed with animated stars. There’s Mickey Mouse and Bugs Bunny (Sharing the screen!), Donald Duck and Daffy Duck (Also together.), Betty Boop, Droopy, Woody Woodpecker, and many more familiar faces. But as much as I adore all the cameos, my favorite Toon in this film is Roger. I was crazy about the guy before the opening cartoon even had a chance to end.

This film jumps straight into a Maroon Cartoon starring Roger Rabbit and Baby Herman called Somethin’s Cookin’. When Baby Herman’s mother goes out, she leaves her son in Roger’s care. (And threatens to send Roger back to the science lab if he doesn’t take good care of Baby Herman.) Now this wouldn’t be much of a cartoon if Roger was a perfect babysitter and Baby Herman didn’t get in any trouble, so of course Baby Herman escapes from his playpen as soon as Mrs. Herman is gone. He sees a full cookie jar sitting atop the refrigerator and heads straight for it. Baby Herman makes his way through the dangerous kitchen unscathed and gets himself a golden, crinkly cookie, but Roger doesn’t fare as well and ends up with the refrigerator on his head.

Recipe makes about 20 peanut butter crinkle cookies

Ingredients

½ cup shortening

½ cup peanut butter

½ cup sugar, plus more for rolling cookies

½ cup packed brown sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 ¼ cups flour

½ teaspoon baking powder

¾ teaspoon baking soda

¼ teaspoon salt

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl.

In a stand mixer on medium speed, beat the shortening, peanut butter, and sugars until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes. Add the egg and the vanilla. Gradually add the dry ingredients and mix until combined.

Shape the dough into 2-tablespoon sized balls. Roll the dough balls in sugar and place on parchment-lined baking sheets.

Bake until cookies are golden, 10-12 minutes.

Remove the cookie sheets from the oven and allow the cookies to cool for 5 minutes before moving them to a wire rack to cool completely. Now you can fill up that cookie jar!

WhoFramedRogerCookieWhoFramedRRCookie (2)

Baby Herman looks awfully happy to get that cookie. Sure he’s just acting, but he’s believable. I remember how shocked I was to see his true self when I watched this movie for the first time. He’s not really a sweet baby, so I wasn’t much of a fan. But my love for Roger only grew as the movie went on. He and all of the other cartoon characters were brought to life so perfectly in a live-action film, I really believed that the Toons and humans acted together. (It was tough for me to accept that Roger didn’t exist in “real life.”) But even if Roger isn’t “real,” the laughs he’s given me are. And “a laugh can be a very powerful thing. Why, sometimes in life, it’s the only weapon we have.”

Rabbit of Seville

Fruit Salad

The month of June always gets me thinking about a certain Looney Tune. Oh, you know the one. Cartoon Network used to do a marathon in honor of the guy. What was that called? June Something. June Duck! No, that’s not right. (Who would want to watch something called June Duck?) Now I remember! It was June Bugs. I know, like I could ever forget June Bugs. Bugs Bunny is one of my favorite cartoon characters EVER, so a weekend of nothing but Bugs was kind of a big deal to me. Yeah, the days of June Bugs are long gone but that can’t stop me from celebrating the rabbit. I think it’s time for my own June Bugs marathon. I can see the drama, the music (Yeah, “see” the music.), the pageantry, the double and triple-takes, the action, and the romance now. But what I really need to be seeing is the food. Most of the time Bugs just eats plain old carrots or someone’s trying to eat Bugs, but there’s got to be something I can make. (It would be much easier if I did this after watching all the cartoons.) Well, I do have one idea.

While playing around online, I stumbled across some stuff about Bugs Bunny making a fruit salad on Elmer Fudd’s head. I wondered what cartoon that could possibly be in. I hit myself when I found out that it’s Rabbit of Seville. How did I not remember that? Rabbit of Seville was, is, and always will be my favorite Bugs Bunny cartoon. I could sit there and watch Bugs shave and beautify Elmer Fudd all day. (Is that weird?) Now where does the fruit salad come in? I’m getting there. You see, Elmer Fudd was chasing Bugs (Big surprise there.) and the chase leads to an amphitheater (The Hollywood Bowl) where The Barber of Seville is to be performed. Bugs runs in through an open stage door and Elmer follows and ends up on stage. Bugs opens the curtain and the orchestra starts playing. The next thing you know, Bugs “The Barber” scoops up Elmer and gives him quite the shave. The next time Elmer finds himself in the barber chair, Bugs massages Elmer’s head and then uses it as the perfect base for a fruit salad. He piles on some lettuce, a bunch of whole fruit, some carrots (This is Bugs Bunny we’re taking about here.), whipped cream (At least I hope it is.), and tops it all off with a cherry. Bugs shows his masterpiece to Elmer Fudd, but he doesn’t seem to like it too much and goes after Bugs with a razor.

Recipe makes one fruit salad

Ingredients

This is a chance to get creative, so add any fruits or veggies that you see fit. Here’s what I used.

4 lettuce leaves

7 red apples

6 bananas

5 oranges

4 carrots

3 plums

4 lemons

3 pears

2 pale skinned white nectarines

2 small bunches of grapes

1 small pineapple

1 cherry

1-2 (15 ounce) cans whipped cream-I used one whole can and could’ve easily used another

 

Directions

Bugs starts with a ring of cream but whipped cream melts away too quickly, (It was already sliding before I got a picture.) so I started with a bed of 4 lettuce leaves. Toss in an orange, a carrot, an apple and a lemon, and two carrots, an orange, and a plum/apple. Slice one carrot and add it. Toss the fruit salad. Mysterious white and dark stuff started showing up here so that’s why I added the nectarines (They were the palest produce I could find.) and the plums. Add a pineapple and an apple.

Okay, now here’s where it gets confusing and crazy. Bugs tosses on so much stuff so quickly and the fruits change to other ones in midair or in the stack. So just stack as much fruit as you want in whatever way suits you.

This is kind of the order Bugs throws the fruit (It was different each time I watched it.), so I sort of followed that. I just used less fruit because it was already out of hand and the last thing I needed were more apples. He adds an apple and a lemon, a banana and an orange, and a pear, an orange, and an apple. Then he adds an apple and a banana, an apple, an orange, and a pear, an apple and a lemon, a pear and an apple, and an orange, a banana, and a small bunch of grapes. Then he adds an apple, a pear, and an orange, an apple and a banana, an apple and an orange, an orange/apple and a banana, and an apple, a pear, and a mystery shape that looks like a yellow bell pepper (I used another lemon). Then he adds an apple and a banana, an apple, an orange, and a small lemon, an lemon and a banana, an apple, a banana, and an orange, and an orange and an apple. (Whew!)

Then spray on some whipped cream. Place a cherry on top and there you have it!

Rabbit of Seville Fruit SaladRabbit of Seville Fruit

Ugh! You don’t know how badly I wanted to build this on someone’s head! (I did try.) But it’s hard enough to build it on a flat surface. You’d think that these “stacking recipes” would be easy, but gravity is a force to be reckoned with. So no, this is not a normal fruit salad, but Bugs Bunny isn’t a normal rabbit. And he’s definitely not a normal barber. If the fruit salad wasn’t enough to convince you, then maybe Bugs using hair restorer on Elmer Fudd’s face and using an itty bitty lawnmower to shave him might. That or Bugs using fertilizer and growing flowers on Elmer’s head. Yeah, he doesn’t like that too much either. This time he goes after Bugs with an axe. And then they have a weapons chase, and then they have a wedding, and then Bugs drops Elmer Fudd from really high up and he falls into a cake! And I just watched this cartoon five times in a row and I still can’t get tired of it. (I never will.) But if I plan on making it through all of Bugs’ cartoons in one busy weekend, I better move on. “Ehh…next?”

Charlotte’s Web

A Veritable Smorgasbord

Salutations! (“It’s my fancy way of saying hello.”) Guess who I learned that from. She has eight legs, catches flies and drinks their blood, Wilbur adores her, and her name is right in the title. Yep, none other than Charlotte A. Cavatica! Now I’m not a big fan of spiders, but Charlotte is one of the very, very few exceptions. (She’s the only spider I’ve ever cried over, but I don’t want to talk about that.) Charlotte may be a common gray spider, but she’s terribly clever and has a gift for words. But most importantly, she’s a friend to Wilbur when he needs one the most. Charlotte promises to try to save Wilbur’s life and uses her talents to play a trick on Zuckerman by spinning “miracles” in her web. (“People are very gullible. They’ll believe anything they see in print.”) Charlotte’s web skyrockets Wilbur to fame and Zuckerman decides to take him to the county fair. But Wilbur isn’t safe from becoming smoked bacon and ham just yet.

When Charlotte needs inspiration for the miracles, she relies on the others in the barn cellar, especially Templeton. But Templeton is a rat who’d rather spend his time spying, hiding, and eating. He doesn’t like to do things for others unless there’s something in it for him. He has to be told that he’ll starve to death if Wilbur is killed. And even then the word he brings Charlotte is “Crunchy.” (He brings back a better word the second time.) So when the day of the fair arrives, Templeton refuses to come along until the Goose convinces him that a fair is a veritable smorgasbord, orgasbord, orgasbord. (“Why, a fair has enough disgusting leftover food to satisfy a whole army of rats.” Yummy.) After it gets dark and Templeton fetches a word for Charlotte, he declares it a night to remember and sets out to glut. He finds melon rinds, bits of hot dogs, cookie crumbs, rotten cotton candy, and other gobs of gorgeous gook. He even decides to pile up his goodies to the point where it topples over. But he doesn’t let that stop him. He eats what he can as it falls and continues his feast around the fairgrounds.

Recipe makes one ratly feast.

Ingredients

You can get as crazy as you want and add whatever to this. Here’s what I used.

Swiss cheese

Lighter cheese wedge with rind-Mine was white cheddar

Lunch meat-One grayer and one more red-Roast Beef and Pastrami

1-2 small zucchinis

Watermelon wedge

Tomato

Yellow snack cake

Chocolate snack cake

Popcorn

Egg-Boiled

Fish-Extra points if you can get a whole one. I had to settle for a fillet, but it is easier to eat.

Chocolate wafer cookie

Vanilla wafer cookies

1 leaf lettuce

Green olives

Black olive

Hotdog

Chocolate pieces

Peach-Cut in half with pit

Apple Core

1 slice bread

 

Directions

So, think of this like a giant sandwich with a lot less bread. Start with a base of Swiss cheese. I used 6 slices. Add a small zucchini and the chocolate snack cake. A piece of rolled up roast beef could work here too. Place the egg near here too. Top with a slice of roast beef, Swiss cheese, and a tomato slice. Add a slice of pastrami and a piece of the watermelon wedge. Top with another tomato slice, some lettuce, and more zucchini or some green olive. Add a slice of bread. Top that with the fish, piece of the wedge cheese, and more pastrami. Sprinkle some bit of green olive and hotdog here. Add another piece of the wedge cheese and the apple core. Top with a slice of Swiss cheese. Add a rolled up piece of roast beef. Add another slice of tomato, another chunk of cheese, and the peach half. Top with some popcorn.

Around the bottom of the stack, place the chocolate and vanilla wafer cookies and some popcorn. Start spreading out from there and add the snack cake, cheese, black olive, pieces of chocolate, another tomato slice, and other miscellaneous. The food pile is quite a balancing act, so add anything else you can think of to stabilize it. Have fun with it and don’t worry if it falls. (Mine fell twice before I got a picture, so it’s extra funky.) These foods are supposed to be leftovers so bite and rip into whatever you want to give them that feel. Once you’re happy, dig in!

Charlotte Web SmorgasbordCharlotte's Web Smorgasbord

All the food that Templeton eats at the fair has been “seasoned” by the passage of time and the heat of the day. It may be yummy for him but it would make anyone else sick, so I’ll stick with the fresh stuff, thank you. (Even the apple core is fresh, but I’m not really going to eat that.) Yeah, it’s kind of weird and kind of messy, but it is really fun. You can pick it apart and have meat and cheese, a sandwich, fruit, dessert, and whatever. Or you can just kind of go for it and eat it all together. Either way, it’ll leave you as full as Templeton. He needs to sleep all that off so his fun at the fair is over, but Wilbur’s is just is getting started. He doesn’t win first prize, but he’s honored for being Some Terrific Radiant Humble Pig and Zuckerman promises to let Wilbur live to a ripe old age. When Wilbur returns to Charlotte and asks her why she did all of this for him, she says it’s because he’s been her friend. She really was in a class by herself. “It is not often that someone comes along who is a true friend and a good writer. Charlotte was both.”

Steven Universe

Episode: Together Breakfast
Even More Together Breakfast

I’d like to say that I’ve been a fan of Steven Universe since the show started, but then I’d be lying. Actually, I was quite late to the party. I was having trouble adjusting to newer shows, so I didn’t even give Steven a chance. But it’s not right for me to say I don’t like a show if I haven’t tried it, so I watched one episode. Then one more. And another and another and now here I am all caught up with everyone else. I felt so silly for thinking that the show had nothing to offer me because it has something for everyone. It’s weird and silly but serious and action-packed. Plus the characters are all so different, be it personalities, abilities, sizes, shapes, colors, whatever. And the amount of heart this show has surprised me. I love Steven’s relationship with the Gems and after I watched “Together Breakfast,” I knew I was hooked on the show.

The episode, just like the title food, is fun and sweet. Steven wakes up to an empty house and starts making breakfast. He’s got four toaster waffles with syrup. (Okay.) When he finds that the Gems still aren’t home, he adds some microwave popcorn. (Interesting.) The house is still empty. What does Steven do? He adds some whipped cream. (Now it’s out of control!) But wait, there’s more! He tops it all off with a strawberry. Now Steven comes to the conclusion that this is too good to be eaten alone. This is a “Together Breakfast” which should be eaten with the Gems like best buds. But when the Gems return, Steven’s breakfast gets turned down and ignored. Not letting that deter him, Steven follows Pearl into her room in the hopes of getting everyone together before his Together Breakfast becomes Together Brunch. This leads to him getting caught up in a waterfall, being chased by Amethyst, and sliding down to the bottom of the Crystal Temple. And just when everyone is together, they have to fight a smoke monster that takes refuge in the Together Breakfast. (“Now it has all the power of a breakfast. We have to destroy it.”) After the battle, they make a Together Breakfast that’s even more together and even more breakfast.

Recipe makes one shareable breakfast.

Ingredients

8 toaster waffles

1-2 bags microwave popcorn

Maple syrup

Canned whipped cream

Strawberry

 

Directions

Alright, this one’s easy. Toast the waffles according to the directions on the box. Place the waffles on a plate in two stacks of 4. Drizzle maple syrup over the waffles. Pop popcorn according to the instructions on the box/bag. Dump as much popcorn as you desire over the sticky waffles. Top with whipped cream and a strawberry. Now you can finally eat!

Steven Universe Together BreakfastSteven Universe More Together Bfst

Okay, so Steven and the Gems decide not to eat the Together Breakfast after all. (“Pizza’s a better idea.”) The Together Breakfast looks great! How can they pass that up? Well, it did try to kill them, so I guess I understand. But I live for food like this so whether I had to fight it or not, I’m eating it. Seeing Steven build the original Together Breakfast made me smile because I’ve been in his sandals and done the similar things. Just not with waffles and popcorn. Too bad the idea of eating the Together Breakfast is now ruined for Steven and the Gems because it’s even more fun to eat than it is to make. But it still brings them together, so it’s not a complete waste.

Howl’s Moving Castle

Bacon and Eggs

Studio Ghibli. You know it. You love it. And if you don’t, it’s only a matter of time before you fall under its spell. I’ve been a fan of Studio Ghibli’s masterpieces since I was little, but it took me many years to figure out that the movies I’d been watching over and over came from the same studio. (I was either really unobservant or really stupid. Probably both.) Once I connected the dots, I knew to keep my eyes peeled for any upcoming movies. It wasn’t long until I found an article about Howl’s Moving Castle. I only had a brief description and a few pictures to go off of, but I was already in love with the film. The only downside was that I’d have to wait for it to come out. And wait and wait. And after a couple long years, I finally got to see it. You can guess that by this point I had very high expectations for this movie. I wasn’t disappointed in the least. Although I can’t say what my favorite Ghibli movie is, (It’s too painful to choose! Don’t make me!) Howl’s Moving Castle has been pretty high up on the list since then.

From the moment Howl’s castle walks across the screen, I check out of reality for a couple of hours and become completely immersed in the beautiful world of the film. Howl’s Moving Castle is obviously fantasy, but the captivating story plays out so effortlessly that it feels real. The characters are just as expressive as you or me and they interact with each other so naturally, routine things such as cleaning or cooking breakfast suddenly become fascinating. I suppose cooking is always livelier when your heat source is a scary and powerful fire demon. Yes, I’ve had my heart stolen by Calcifer too, (I’m rocking my pair of Calcifer socks right now.) but he’s only a part of what makes the breakfast sequence so wonderful. Sophie, Howl, and Markl are just as important. They’re all together for the first time and they already look like a fun little family to me. And then there’s the food! Studio Ghibli has a reputation for beautifully animating food for a reason. Something as simple as bacon and eggs becomes the tastiest looking meal in the world, and I can’t say I wouldn’t tear through my breakfast like Markl.

Recipe serves 2-3.

Ingredients

3 strips bacon (The biggest/thickest you can find.)

4-6 large eggs (Only 4 shown in the picture)

Salt

 

Directions

Place room temperature bacon in a cold pan and set heat to medium. When bacon begins to curl, flip it to the other side. When the bacon is close to your desired doneness, move the bacon over and crack and add the eggs. If there isn’t enough grease, add a little bit of oil before adding the eggs. If the grease is too hot, reduce the heat to low. Continue to cook until the bacon is cooked through and the egg whites are completely set but the yolk is still soft. Remove from heat and season. Bon appétit!

Howl BreakfastHowl Bacon Eggs

It’s not fair. Howl makes cooking look so easy. He can even crack eggs one-handed. I’ve tried and tried and I still can’t do it. I think I’m defective. I have more trouble cooking bacon and eggs than I do most foods, (“I can’t remember the last time we had a real breakfast!”) but I just had to give this a shot. Sure, it’s not nearly as pretty as Howl’s, but it’s still darn tasty. And the best part is, my screwy stove can be as uncooperative as Calcifer, but my bacon didn’t burn!

Pokémon: Indigo League

Episode: Showdown at Dark City
Omurice

There are a ton of shows out there that I’m crazy about. And then there are the few shows that I’m CRAZY about. Those are the ones that truly define who I am and never fail to make me smile. They’re also the ones I obsess over to the point where it’s probably unhealthy. Pokémon is one of those shows. (Particularly Indigo League.) After watching it over and over all of these years, I still can’t get sick of it. I love the show. I love it as much as…as much as…as much as Pikachu loves ketchup!

Man, that really takes me back. All the way back to Dark City when the Yas and Kaz Gyms were in the middle of a gang war over becoming an official Pokémon Gym. When Ash, Misty, and Brock enter the city, they’re puzzled by its ghost town appearance and a woman’s fear of Pokémon trainers. Before Ash and friends have a chance to do anything, they encounter some rock-throwing kids who dislike anyone who works with Pokémon. Fortunately, a friendly restaurant owner steps in and invites Ash and Co. inside and explains the city’s situation. Since they’re in a restaurant, they might as well eat. Ash is served up some tasty looking omurice, but it doesn’t stay pretty for long. Pikachu is just loving a bottle of ketchup and when Ash asks Pikachu to pour some on, Pikachu is happy to share the good stuff. And by share I mean dump on enough that you can’t see the omurice anymore and Ash has to take the ketchup away from Pikachu. (Which Pikachu quickly wrestles back from Ash.)

Recipe makes 2 servings.

Ingredients

Fried Rice:

1 tablespoon butter

½ cup onion, finely chopped

½ cup mixed vegetables, finely chopped (I use a mix of peas and carrots, but use whatever you like.)

4 ounces chicken, cut into bite-sized pieces

1 cup cooked rice

1 tablespoon soy sauce

2 tablespoons ketchup, plus more for decoration

Salt

Pepper

 

Omelettes

4 large eggs

4 tablespoons heavy cream or milk

Salt

Oil or Nonstick Cooking Spray

 

Directions

Fried Rice:

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and vegetables and cook until onions become translucent and vegetables begin to soften. Add the chicken, salt, and pepper. Once the chicken is fully cooked, add the rice and soy sauce and stir until any clumps of rice have been broken down and the ingredients are thoroughly mixed. Add the ketchup and mix until the ketchup is evenly distributed throughout the rice. Adjust seasonings and remove from heat and set aside.

Omelettes:

In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, cream or milk, and a pinch of salt.

Putting It All Together:

Heat oil in a 10-inch nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Pour in half the egg mixture and tilt the pan to evenly spread it. When the bottom of the egg has set but the top is still runny, reduce the heat to low. Spread half of the fried rice in the middle of the omelette. Fold the left and right sides of the omelette over the rice. Move the omurice to the edge of the pan and flip it onto a plate. Cover the omurice with a clean towel and shape it into an oval. Repeat with the remaining ingredients. Drizzle the omurice with ketchup (Or drown it if you’re like Pikachu!) and serve!

Pokemon OmuricePokemon Dark City Omurice

So maybe the omurice doesn’t look as pleasing after Pikachu’s through with it, but I’m sure it’s still delicious. I tend to be a bit heavy-handed with the ketchup myself. It’s good for everything, except aliases. But “Tom Ato” isn’t very good either. (Don’t get me started on “Ann Chovy” and “Caesar Salad.”) Ash should’ve picked a better name, but that’s not what’s important. What’s really important is that the Yas and Kaz Gyms know that it’s wrong to use Pokémon for street fighting. And the kids finally realize what I’ve known most of my life: Pokémon are the coolest, especially Pikachu.
