He's not referencing a specific cartoon, but rather the trope of cartoon missiles or rockets being pointy a lot of the time, characters simply possessing sooty faces after encountering them, and occasionally becoming angels with harps. These happen a lot in cartoons, and the only specific ones mentioned in that conversation are Popeye (by name) and this: ...

Sounds like Orphan Black. I don't want to say too much about it, as it has lots of twists in the plot. Please venture to these links at your own risk. Spoiler alert A BBC America link to it here and a wikipedia link to it here.

Well, they're kind of zombies (They behave like ones, but the film insists they're mutant vampires). You seem to be looking for Against the Dark from 2009 with Steven Seagal. When most of the population of Earth is infected with a virus and transformed into flesh eaters and blood drinking creatures, a group of hunters led by Tao chases the vampire ...

My take is that it is "The Infinite Worlds of H.G. Wells" (Wikipedia, IMDB) This miniseries is from 2001, has 3 episodes recounting 2 H.G. Wells stories each. Part of the 1st episode centers on an "Invisible Man", who gained this ability from acceleration, a retelling of "The New Accelerator" I do not quite recall a hummingbird, but at a point Wells (the ...

The Langoliers. It was a 2 part mini-series based on the eponymous short story by Stephan King. It was released in 1995 on SciFi, which loves to replay the golden oldie movies. They had to be asleep to pass through the time vortex a minute into the past, and then again a minute into the future. The one that said "OMG, It's So Beautiful" was Nick, who pulled ...

Found it! It's Mito Koumon, not Mikotoun, which is why my Google-fu was failing me. This allowed me to find the parody video too. (I know the quality sucks, but that's about how I remember it being when I first watched it, so I don't think there's a better copy out there, at least not subtitled.)

Finally found it ) If anyone is curious: it's "The New Adventures of Ocean Girl". Here's a shot with the henchmen:

I cannot comment so I'm going to have to guess here. Being a 90's kid, I think what you mean is ReBoot : http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0108903/ I remember this TV show was fascinating, I just can't remember anything other than a joker appearance (clown like baddy) and some sort of races in space. Let me know if that's the right answer :P

Could it be the Elegy episode of The Twilight Zone show? It was in black and white, not color (though perhaps was colorized at some point), but other details match your description: Beginning of plot synopsis from Wikipedia: Running out of fuel, astronauts Meyers, Webber, and Kirby land their spaceship on a remote asteroid in 2186. They find the place ...

You are thinking of The Langoliers from 1995, based on the Stephen King short story of the same name. The plane flies through a rip in time, and all of the passengers who are not asleep disappear. The seven who remain find themselves stuck a few minutes in the past, but it is an empty world, waiting for the titular creatures to come along and devour it. To ...

You mean The Raccoons. The series revolves around Bert Raccoon and married couple Ralph and Melissa Raccoon, of whom Bert is a friend and roommate. The series mostly involved the trio's efforts against the industrialist forces of greedy Aardvark millionaire called Cyril Sneer (the antagonist you meant), who usually tries to destroy the forest for money. ...
