My five favorite Disney characters:
Today is the birthday of Walt Disney, one of the most important men in my life. He was born December 5, 1901, in Chicago. He changed the world, and his creations have had a profound impact on me. I truly would not be who I am today if it wasn’t for his vision. I grew […]
Oh, man! I don’t know how I am just now getting news that Warner Brothers is releasing new Looney Tunes cartoons. I freaking love Wile E. Coyote. I remember screaming at the television, “NO! NO! NO! That’s NOT GOING TO WORK!” I remember holding my head in my hands when that son of a bitch […]
Calvin and Hobbes wasn’t in the Sunday funnies when I was young enough to be reading the Sunday funnies, so I sort of missed that whole boat. Every now and then I’d see a strip, though, and I always thought it was a great comic. (The “snow sharks” one was my favorite.) Someone gave me […]
Fifty years ago [today], a squirrel wearing an old-school aviator’s hat and goggles came flying across the screen followed by a goofy moose, launching arguably the greatest cartoon in television history. Moose and Squirrel are now old enough for AARP memberships. Yet their warped and wonderful brand of humor, written and performed so that kids […]
Listen: I was never a huge Trek fan. I was always Star Wars all the way. After school my sister and I watched cartoons — Tom & Jerry, Bugs Bunny, Superfriends — and then, because we were usually with my grandparents, the standard early 80s grandparent shows: Happy Days, Barney Miller, Alice, and M*A*S*H. It […]
If you’re not watching HBO’s The Life & Times of Tim, you are missing the funniest show on TV right now. It’s a combination of Family Guy and Seinfeld, with a bit of The Office added to make it uncomfortable. And like The Royal Tenenbaums you need to pay attention to all the details that […]
We are then introduced to the shabby state of both the grounds keeping and of stadium security at the Polo Grounds, as we see an angry rabbit (Bugs Bunny, RHP/UT) is able to heckle the visiting team from left field, where he has dug a fairly substantial hole, and is enjoying a carrot-dog and (it […]
“All the loves in the strip are unrequited; all the baseball games are lost; all the test scores are D-minuses; the Great Pumpkin never comes; and the football is always pulled away.” — Charles Schultz on Peanuts from Caterina
Again, Defendant sold over the counter, without caveat, a product which attached powerful jet engines (in this case, two) to inadequate vehicles, with little or no provision for passenger safety. link via The Shifted Librarian
Woo hoo! I got my Secret Santa gift yesterday. It’s a very merry Homer Simpson Collector’s Trivia Tin! Thank you, Lee! Click ‘more’ for some great Simpsons links!
These costumed characters were used to promote Boong-Ga Boong-Ga at the Tokyo Gaming Convention. One is a poking finger, the other a poop keychain. Only in Japan…
There’s a cute little animated cartoon that I found. I’m not sure what format “asf” is. It has sound and on my system plays in Windows Media Player. Do you know what kind of file this is?
