It has been a while, so we have some catching up to do! If you have any links or news you’d like us to feature, just hit us up on Twitter at @PopRewindOnline!
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 Morning Programming:
Why not wake up to a little bit of Bobby’s World this morning!
In fever dream news, Warner Bros. Courts Mel Gibson to Direct ‘Suicide Squad’ Sequel. Wut?

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Expansion Pass.
In other news, Linz is going to need a second job now that Funko Goes All In On Rick And Morty.
Rediscover the 80s brought this awesomeness to our attention: ‘Toys That Time Forgot’ Book About Unproduced Toys Now On Kickstarter. We love that kind of stuff!
