That’s right folks, it was 20 years ago today that Canadian animator/maniac John Kricfalusi warped the minds of 10-12 year olds across the globe. Never before had toilet humor and outlandish violence been captured so beautifully as it was with the help of an asthma-hound chihuahua and a semi-retarded cat. But if it wasn’t for the disturbing nonsensical chaos that Ren & Stimpy provided, I probably wouldn’t be the jolly ole Viking that I am today. Read the rest of this entry »
Originally I thought this was just going to be a re-telling of my favorite childhood cartoon. I was bullshit when I thought Lion-O was going to stay looking as a child. But if this is what I think, and it’s taking place well after the T-Cats have crashed on 3rd Earth, I’m going to be one happy Reptilian. This looks amazing.

Tonight’s the night we all get super tanked and pass out early so that Santa can deliver his presents. But before he makes his way to Earth, he needs to make a pit stop at a planet similar to ours. A great evil named Horde Prime has learned of the Spirit of Christmas, fearing that it just might be the only thing powerful enough to stop him. Guys like that make me want to kick them in the jingle balls. Read the rest of this entry »
While fighting the tail-end of a rockin’ cold, I was sitting at work last night monitoring one of my clients when an idea hit me. The dude was sitting in bed having random episodes of harsh chomping at the open air, followed by a few quick seconds of gnawing on his bottom lip. He looked like a human piranha in mid feeding-frenzy. I let that thought percolate in my noodle for the duration of my shift. It wasn’t until my drive home that the perfect cartoon for today made sense. Some douche-fuck in a white sedan swerved onto my side of the road, nearly careening head-on into my mighty Ford Focus. A vision of shark fins popping out of the concrete, chasing that fuck down like the can of sardines he/she is, had me in great spirits throughout the rest of my drive. Too bad the only way I’ll get to see that happen is by watching today’s cartoon, Street Sharks. Read the rest of this entry »
Mother Nature is a harsh mistress. Her storms can send houses flying through the air, her earthquakes cause the tallest of buildings to crumble into dust, and her bitter cold seasons have a way of sending more than just retired folk racing for the equator. Even if you’re a scientist trying to figure out a way to grow trees in the desert, like nature enthusiast/scientist Alec Holland was trying to do, that evil tree-bitch will totally ruin your day. In Holland’s case, she sent her minions to his swamp-lab to destroy stuff (mostly glass beakers with strange science liquids in them). Some of the liquids splashed onto him turning him into a massive pile of moss and leaves, hell-bent on protecting that which he became…a mighty Swamp Thing. Read the rest of this entry »
I could have spent my afternoon doing something productive, but instead, I’ve dredged up some wonderful forgotten cartoons from the late 80’s and early 90’s for you all to enjoy. Every cartoon I’ve found for this post is extra special so, without further time wasting, I give you: The Cartoon Bone Yard. Read the rest of this entry »
While driving home from work, sounds of the bitch’n hard rock group The Donnas pounding through the air, and traffic sucking the life clean out of me, I couldn’t help but wonder what it would be like if my vehicle had the ability to turn into something that could fly. That in mind, I started to remember the sweet show where just about every damn car, truck, and motorcycle did just that. Read the rest of this entry »
It’s cold today. Super cold. Like, call out of work and stay home and watch 80’s cartoons all day cold. I bring to you a forgotten hit that, much like Starcom, the toys out-shined the show. Telling you the premmise of this righteous animation of awesomeness it pointless. If you pay attention to the intro, you’ll get the complete rundown. So hold onto your sphincters, squeeze the hell out of your My Pet Monster, and get ready to be rocked by Jace and the Wheeled Warriors: Read the rest of this entry »
If that was the episode, I’d hate to see what the moral is! (drum roll and rim shot)
Being a child that was hatched at the dawn of the 80’s, I was privy to many a great shows in my time. Many of these shows have been either forgotten, tossed aside, or slipped so far under the radar that only a geek of my caliber would’ve watched them. Today I bring one of such shows to you. So pull on your Wuzzles slippers, dawn your He-Man pj’s, and pour yourself a bowl of Ghostbuster’s cereal, cuz here comes the Tigersharks! Read the rest of this entry »
The Aquarium L-13 gallery in London is now featuring Splatter, an art show touching on violence in cartoons. The work looks really playful and graphic and I hope they publish a book to accompany it since I can’t go (I’ve got shit to do). I’m a huge Looney Tunes fan, especially ACME products, and one of the pieces looks like Wile E. Coyote’s bunker. So amazing.
ALF TALES, 8:00
One of the greatest shows of all time….
Who doesn’t hang out with their palls on the weekend, toss back a few cold ones, then jump on YouTube to track down some old cartoon intros? I just stumbled across a few endings.
