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:

We’re watching Nick Arcade this morning in celebration of Nick Arcade host Phil Moore’s new project…more about that below!

Movies:

A teaser trailer for Deadpool 2 dropped and we are all in.

New clip from the Power Rangers 2017 movie!

Television:

Phil Moore of Nick Arcade is making a brand new video game competition show called BATTLE ARCADE for every adult who, as a kid, wanted to be on Nick Arcade. Go contribute to his Go Fund Me!

Nice! Turner, Warner Bros. to Launch Animation Streaming Service Boomerang. Wonder if Quackbusters will be available!

Video Games:

Nintendo hid a secret message on the Switch’s Pro Controller.

Comic Books:

Linz is super excited about this! It was announced earlier this year that the Jem and the Holograms comic was coming to an end in April. The Jem comic is back for a miniseries in June!

In Case You Missed It:

New Pop Rewind Podcast episode is up! We’re talking about the 1997 movie Event Horizon for some reason. Linz lets us know that Corey Hart is not in New Kids on the Block, and Lee has problems with the Eurythmics. It gets weird.

Linz created a new Super Mario Maker level for those still playing: Super Mario Maker: E.T. for Atari.

OMG 64DD #louisvillearcadeexpo #64dd #n64

Lee went to the Louisville Arcade Expo last weekend and saw all sorts of cool stuff, like this 64DD! Be sure to check out our Instagram for lots of great pics from his adventure!

Elsewhere…:

Rediscover the 80s breaksdown “Livin’ on a Prayer” by Bon Jovi!

Retroist asks: Have you seen the Tom Selleck Indiana Jones Screen Test?

We have no idea how, but Dinosaur Dracula and The Sexy Armpit keep finding still-functioning video stores. We’re living in the wrong places, clearly!

R.I.P.:

Very sad news: Tommy Page, Singer and Former Billboard Publisher, passed away at the age of 46.
