‘Ponos’ on The View: ‘Porno’ is back in theaters after 15 years!
Wired, January 14, 2018 — In honor of Pono’s 20th anniversary, the Internet Archive and Netflix are pleased to present a new collection of videos featuring films, books, and other cultural artifacts produced in the ’80s, ’90s, and early 2000s.
“Pono: The Movie Archive” is a collection of nearly 500 new videos featuring original clips from the original “Pono: The Animation” series and “Poonos: The Animated Film” episodes, along with a selection of other videos from other classic video games, films, and video-games that have recently made their way to Netflix.
In addition, the archive will feature two new featurettes.
“Featuring Poonos and Ponos: What Would It Be Like To Be A Teenager?,” by Theatrical Producer David Tipton, and “Meet the Poonoos: Meet the Poons,” by former Poono-related character actor and comedian John Hodgman, will be released by the Internet Archives in the coming weeks.
“The Internet Archive is thrilled to be releasing these clips,” said Internet Archive Content Director and former Pono staff member, Adam Hays.
“This collection is an exciting addition to the Archive’s online content and will add a valuable new way for people to discover the archives they love and appreciate.”
Pono creator and creator of the Pons, Ron Gilbert, also said, “This is a huge honor for me to be able to share this amazing archive with the fans and fans of Ponos in all its glorious glory.
I can’t wait to see what they think!”
The archive’s director, John Hodgmann, added, “It’s hard to think of a more fitting tribute to Pono than the new “Pons: The New Adventures of Poona,” a new movie that stars Pooni and her friend Poonie.
I have to admit, I’m a little nervous about this one because I’m not sure that I’ll get a chance to see it in theaters.
However, I am thrilled that Poonas creators have agreed to make the film available on Netflix for the first time.
“As part of this collection, the internet will be able show us the stories behind the classic films, music, and even sports teams that made Pons a household name.” “
For decades, Pons and Poonies have been a key part of the world of PONOS and PONO,” said Erik Gates, VP of Content for Netflix.
“As part of this collection, the internet will be able show us the stories behind the classic films, music, and even sports teams that made Pons a household name.”
“PONOS” is available on Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire, Xbox One, and Android TV.
