Our Adorable Past

Winnie the Pooh Says “Oh Bother” Just As Often As You Remember [VIDEO]

That’s right, Disney has made us a supercut of Winnie the Pooh saying his signature phrase. You may tell me that I’m too old for Pooh Bear, to which I will say that I don’t care. I’m going to go play Poohsticks and you’re not invited.


Gender Bendery

MovieBob Takes On The “Gay Agenda” Complaints Of The Hub’s SheZow [VIDEO]

We previously reported on the controversy surrounding SheZow, a cartoon from Australia, now airing on The Hub here in the U.S. Writer Ben Shapiro felt the need to defend his show on things outsiders were reading into it but now MovieBob takes a crack. And a great one at that. Give it a watch.

And Now For Something Completely Different

Cartoon Characters Aren’t So Funny When They’re Skeletons

But they sure are interesting to look at. Artist Michael Paulus shows us classic cartoon characters as we’ve never seen them before – as skeletons. In his series “Character Study,” Paulus looked at characters that have been around for decades with a scientific eye. He writes, “I decided to take a select few of these popular characters and render their skeletal systems as I imagine they might resemble if one truly had eye sockets half the size of its head, or fingerless-hands, or feet comprising 60% of its body mass.” The results are a little macabre but definitely cool. You can purchase prints and originals in his Etsy shop.

Fans Do Cool Things

What If BBC Sherlock Was An Animated Cartoon Series?

Like many of us, Angela Taratuta is a fan of BBC Sherlock. But unlike many of us, she decided to turn the series into a cartoon by redrawing screencaps from A Scandal in Belgravia. Beware: cartoony Sherlock feels!

Great Hera!

Super Best Friends Forever Will Not Continue With the Next Season of DC Nation

Lauren Faust tweeted this picture last night along with the text “Been missing these ladies lately…” This prompted our fellow ladies in comics blogger Sue from DC Women Kicking Ass to press for more information, and Faust, the showrunner behind My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and The Super Best Friends Forever shorts for the DC Nation hour on Cartoon Network, confirmed the sad news that when DC Nation finally returns from an unexpected hiatus in January, we won’t be seeing any more of the SBFF’s brand of equal opportunity crime fighting any time soon.


Bloody Good Fun

1946 Walt Disney Menstruation Animation Tells Us We’re Ok Just The Way We Are

No, this video from 1946 isn’t perfect as far as feminism goes but I have to say, I’m surprised to find it so…not 1946? Though I guess I’m even more surprised Walt Disney Productions made a video about our periods at all. 


May The Force Be With You

Star Wars: The Clone Wars Returning With A Woosh In The Fall [VIDEO]

That was supposed to be the sound of a lightsaber in case you were wondering. Cartoon Network’s Star Wars: The Clone Wars had a pretty action packed fourth season. I won’t spoil it for those who’ve yet to hear the news but the biggest event to happen was the return of a character thought quite dead. Needless to say, this trailer shows us s/he will be back in force for Season 5 along with all our favorites including Ashley Eckstein’s Ahsoka Tano! I love pretty much everything about this trailer but I’m especially digging the music they’re using. Star Wars: The Clone Wars returns this fall.

Oh Really?

A Comprehensive List of the Top 10 Hottest Animated Dudes [Video]

One million years ago, when I was in high school, I was hanging out backstage of our school play with some fellow female cast and crew mates, where we were having a serious discussion in an attempt to make the poor freshman boy in the booth — who could hear everything over the active body mics — severely uncomfortable. We talked about our periods, made up crushes and rumors, and one day, we discussed which animated characters we found really, really hot. And that’s exactly the project that Lindsay Ellis, also known as “The Nostalgia Chick” over at That Guy With the Glasses, has taken on. If she had only heard our conversation … she would have been even more disturbed than I was when I saw who made the number 10 slot. (Goliath tied for #9, by the way. I won’t spoil who he had to share the slot with.) Video after the jump.

It’s the 100th Birthday of Charles Addams!

If you’ve been on Google today, you might have noticed a new doodle that’s creepy and kooky, mysterious and spooky. That’s because today would have been the 100th birthday of Addams Family creator, Charles Addams! The cartoonist is responsible for one of the weirdest families to grace our newspapers TV sets, and later the silver screen and the Broadway stage. So, let’s get our freak on and celebrate the twisted mind of Charles Addams!
