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 TV:

Linz was watching a lot of SCTV clips on YouTube earlier this week. With all that John Candy goodness, she decided to go with an episode of Camp Candy this morning. Remember when everyone had their own cartoon series? Good times, good times…

Movies:

Forget Blue Steel, this is the best line in the movie!

Finally, a sequel to look forward to! It’s possible that a Zoolander sequel might happen!

A new trailer for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie was released earlier this week. Still not sure how we feel about it.

Music:

Alt-rockers They Might Be Giants published a surprise release this week: a live version of their debut album from 1986.  It’s officially a free download for those of you who are into that sort of thing.

Toys Based on Video Games:

I hope this Happy Meal collection comes with a Death Stare Luigi toy!

Good news/bad news/good news! Good news: McDonald’s is releasing Mario Kart 8 Happy Meal Toys! Bad news: That creepy mascot is gonna be all up in your bizness. Good news: I get a toy with my obligatory “I’m drunk and need a cheeseburger with extra pickles!” meal!

Sailor Moon Watch 2014:

An extended trailer for the new Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal anime has hit the ‘net! The series premiers July 5 with new episodes the first and third Saturdays of the month, airing on Hulu and NeonAlley

In Case You Missed It:
