Saturday Morning Recap: Vol. 1

Posted by

Remember when Saturday mornings were worth getting up for? While we can’t provide a four-hour block of programming, here’s some retro news you may have missed (or simply want to revisit) from the past week.

Saturday’s Cartoon:

One of my favorite episodes of Garfield and Friends/U.S. Acres was the one where Sheldon hatched… well, I don’t want to spoil it. If you don’t want to watch the full episode, Shell Shocked Sheldon begins at 8:48.

Literature:

Kids in the Hall’s Scott Thompson is running a KickStarter to fund Volume 2 of his Danny Husk graphic novel. Volume One was amazing, and we need this to happen. The perks on this are amazing– for $50 you get what you’d expect: the books, a T-Shirt… oh, and either a personal video or phone message for your voice mail. WHAT. How have you not pledged already?!

Don’t remember Danny Husk?


Well, you should. His underarm secretions created world peace.

Food:

Cake Wrecks showcases Toons From Our Childhood… in cake form. Okay, okay, beats any cake I got in my childhood. But, were any of them Funfetti?

Movies:

Arnold Schwartzenegger talks Terminator, the sequel to Twins, and other stuff on the Nerdist Podcast.

The X-Men: Days of Future Past Official Trailer was posted and all was good with the world.

A trailer for the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was also released this week, leaving the Internet (or at least us) confused. Not sure if want?

Ghostbusters 3 is slated for an early 2015 shoot in New York without Ivan Reitman as Director. Reitman will still produce and is helping find a new Director. We’re trying to get excited about this, but we’re both still too bummed about Harold Ramis.

It Came From Canada:

This Clearly Canadian commercial from 1987 is so very clearly Canadian. For those of you who don’t remember this beverage, there’s a campaign to bring it back and they’re taking pre-orders. This is relevant because Clearly Canadian is the maker of ORBITZ! According to their FAQ, they’re still trying to determine if Orbitz can be reproduced. Get in on it by clicking here.

In Case You Missed It:

Scott Thompson Talks Graphic Novels, Stand-up, and Early Internet Adopters. We interviewed Scott about his graphic novels and a bunch of other stuff– awesome guy to talk to!

We posted the League’s latest assignment: My Life in One Square Foot. Or, two square feet, since there’s two of us.

What were some of your highlights for the week?
