A collection of Spawns that appeared in both TV and Cinema screens. The list is in descending order. Image of Spawn sitting by his lonesome self inside the cinema is courtesy of Hunter R.
FEBRUARY 2011Batboy 13 alerted me to this movie where the only relevant part is "Paul" inside a comic shop with a haphazard and eclectic collection. There are Spawn the Dark Ages and Spawn in the spinning comics rack and Spawn 10th Anniversary, Spawn Alley Set and a peripheral figure in the display rack.
SEASON 6 EPISODE 4: INSTANT KARMA
It takes 'House M.D' five years (I stopped watching after season 3) before they realised that their series is incomplete without Spawn making an appearance. Tyranide of Russia spotted this Manga Spawn 2 (June 2008 Series 34) among the prize collection of Jack, the teenage son of a wealthy businessman.
A cautionary tale about adoption and the need to ensure that the orphanage is properly edutrust certified before visiting them. Never did finish the movie - I simply found what I was looking for and watched 'Burn Notice' instead.
McFarlane figures were the target of Daniel Coleman's paintball practise but when the figures provide futile resistance, this dastardly child decides to shoot a peaceful and angelic dove instead...no, he is not the "orphan" in this movie although he nearly become one.
Robot #1 from the Omega Squadron (October 2007 Series 32) is one of his victim, looks like this young killer did not possess the entire Omega Squadron.
Among his collection is i131 (March 2005 Series 27).
THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL
The re-make of this 1951 movie features a Raven Spawn (October 2007 Series 32) in Jacob Benson's room.
SEASON 3 EPISODE 9
On October 7th, Robot Chickens, a stop-motion animated comedy TV series featured Spawn and Malebolgia in a violin-playing contest.
SEASON 11 EPISODE 12
In the conclusion of the Imaginationland Trilogy on October 31st, Spawn is one of the many characters that appeared - I went through the trilogy several times but have yet to discover him!
LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD
Bruce Willis examined Spawn i007 (October 2006 Supersize Series 6) before breaking it in this third edition of the 'Die Hard' movie franchise.
SEASON 7 EPISODE 24
Spawn figures - the i007 (October 2006 Supersize Series 6), Spawn the Marauder (May 2007Series 31) and Nightmare Spawn (May 2007 Series 31), on display in CSI, the Las Vegas version. It was originally mistakenly announced as CSI: Miami. Open display? The collector better be armed with cans of compressed air during spring cleaning.
Many thanks to Batboy 13 from the USA for bringing up the following scenes in 'Thir13en Ghosts' and he was very precise about it too, really appreciate it. In the movie, Cyrus Kriticos is a very rich collector of unique things and following are samples:
Cyber Spawn and peripheral figures.
There is a Nitro Rider together with comics and other figures.
THE POWERPUFF GIRLS
SEASON 3 EPISODE 32B: SUPER ZEROES
Buttercup, one of the three Powerpuff Girls was inspired by her hero 'Spore' (a parody of Spawn) and decided to transform herself into Mange (again a parody of Spawn). I am not a fan of this cartoon show (and even if I am, there is no way I would admit to it) but this particular episode - Season 3 Episode 32B titled Super Zeroes and released on 20/10/2000 is pretty hilarious. The script taken from rowdyruff.net
Buttercup about her favourite hero: Spore
(The full title of the strip: “Old McDonald’s Angry Spore.” Next panel: the creature, Spore, rising from a sea of flames.)
Buttercup: (voice rising) Out of the darkness he rises to kick butt!
(On the end of this, we see a panel in which Spore punches a gunman in the face. Effect: “AACK!” Next panel: a thug being kicked in the jaw. Buttercup’s next line matches the effects in this one and the next.)
Buttercup: Kerak! (A beam of energy from his hand, with an off-panel explosion.) Blam!
(Cut to a panel in which Spore holds a large assault weapon. Word balloon: “It’s show time!” As Buttercup continues, tilt down to the bottom of the picture. Effect: “LOAD.”)
Buttercup: (huskily) That hurt you more than it hurt me!
Buttercup extoling about the scabs that never heal
Buttercup: Yeah, and Spore has scabs that never heal. (Pan to Bubbles.)
Bubbles: Bunny-Bunny could heal ’em. (Back to each sister in turn.)
Blossom: No, she couldn’t. She’s not a hero.
Buttercup: And they never heal!
Buttercup as Mange
Buttercup: Uh-uh. Too bright. Mange only travels at night
SEASON 3 EPISODE 1
Cogliostro is a busy man indeed in mid-1999, here he appeared in the animated series of Spawn pronouncing himself as the Black Knight, the errand boy of Malebolgia who collect soul on his behalf. Disillusioned with his career choice, he took up the black art and became Merlin.
Mentioned in IMDB Spawn Movie Connection that one of the triplet in the movie is wearing a Spawn t-shirt, it is actually Hellboy.
FREAK ON A LEASH
FEBRUARY 1999Thanks to Batboy 13 for picking out the screenshot of a Spawn comic in "Freak on a Leash" music video. The band is Korn and the video was directed by Todd McFarlane, all secondary information that I am not interested in. What is of utmost importance is: which issue the boy has his hand on? Well, Hunter R started digging and discovered it is #13 from August 1993.
WE SHOW YOU HOW LIFE SHOULD BE
FEBRUARY 1998Thanks to Batboy 13 who provided the info of a Spawn logo appearing in Jay and Silent Bob MTV short "We Show You How Life Should Be". The screenshot taken by Hunter R is at 1:09 of the video clip. Incidentally, this is one of the seven MTV shorts featuring the duo by View Askews Production.
Starring Michael Jai White as Al Simmons
The very watchable Spawn animated series titled 'Todd McFarlane's Spawn' commences its run in 1997. The scriptwriting was handled superbly by Alan McElroy while the animation is in the hands of the South Koreans. The animated series lasted 3 seasons, with 6 episodes per season. The third season ends with a cliffhanger, the sort of "to be continued" deathknell you so often see in comics. The entire run is available in Youtube.
