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.
Muppet BAAAAABIES. This is “Gonzo’s Video Show”, better known as “That episode of Muppet Babies with the Star Wars stuff in it”.
Insert joke about Hollywood running out of original films to make, while being fully aware that Linz can barely hold in her excitement for Terminator 5. But no, seriously. A Police Academy reboot is happening courtesy of Key & Peele. Fingers crossed for a cartoon reboot!
There’s also a lot of buzz this week about a Wreck-It Ralph sequel already in development. Here’s hoping for another Buckner & Garcia track!
Julie Brown is wrapping up a musical based on her 80s novelty classic “Homecoming Queen’s Got a Gun”. No, we’re not kidding. There really is a musical based on this 30 year old song.
In other news, a fan recently asked Yoko Ono if John Lennon ever revealed the true secrets behind the “Paul is dead” hoax. She kind of dodged a direct answer to the question on her weekly Q&A, leaving yet another mysterious clue to analyze.
Comic book staple Archie is turned into a snuff series. Archie bites it in Life With Archie #36, hitting shelves in July, leaving everyone asking… WTF?
In Case You Missed It:
