Lucas, Philbin journey to 3-D TV

LucasArts, Cartoon Network pact for pair

The names George Lucas and Regin Philbin don’t usually pop up in the same sentence, but both men will be popping out with separate 3-D TV presentations this Halloween.

LucasArts is teaming up with the Cartoon Network for 3-D versions of episodes of two original series on the net, “Out of Jimmy’s Head” and “Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends.” As a bonus, viewers will get a sneak preview of the new LucasArts videogame “Thrillville: Off the Rails.”

Meanwhile, Buena Vista TV is billing the Oct. 31 hour of “Live With Regis & Kelly” as “the first-ever 3-D episode in daytime TV history.” Philbin and co-host Kelly Ripa will dress up in “outrageous” Halloween costumes and the hour will include special f/x designed for 3-D.
