Like many of you I grew up watching Saturday morning cartoons. As a matter of fact, I called Saturday “cartoon day” until I was about seven years old. Back in the golden era of Saturday morning animated entertainment we had incredible (yet bizzaro) shows like Transformers, Thundercats, and the U.S.A. Cartoon Express. While programming like Star Wars: The Clone Wars still provides kids with a bit of “magic”, I fear that the days of utterly ridiculous 80s-style cartoons are long gone… Enjoy this April fools joke from the fine folks at IGN. For the record… I would watch the poop out of this show.
Love ’em or hate ’em memes are here to stay… forever. From deformed frescoes to awkward teens clutching a pile of author R.L. Stein’s classic works, one can’t help but crack up at the idiocy of it all. Chris Hardwick and Mike Phirman (known as Hard’n Phirm) bring the world famous “Gersberms” meme to life and are joined by Paramore’s Hayley Williams, “The Big Bang Theory”‘s Melissa Rauch, The Muppets’ Swedish Chef and Mr. R.L. Stein himself for some internet gold. Also, if you haven’t checked out the Nerdist podcast in recent months, Chris was recently joined by Tom Hanks for one of the best podcasts I think I’ve ever heard. Tom Hanks?! Check that out right here.
