Things We Saw Today: So Is This Heartbreaking Toy Story Theory About Andy’s Dad Real or Not? No One Can Seem to Agree
The "Andy's Dad" theory from Toy Story has been floating around the internet for a while. Now, the full story of how the boy's father fits into the movie's world has been released, and oh wow is it ever sad. Like, way too sad. Polio sad.

Things We Saw Today: Meet Martha, The 125-Pound Mastiff Who Was Very Rudely Named World’s “Ugliest Dog”
Don't listen to them, Martha. You're stunning as h*ck.Read More
And the 1990s nostalgia train just keeps on chuggin'. Next up in We Just Can't Leave Our Childhoods Alone is a reboot of the popular animated series Animaniacs. This is both awesome and concerning, because the thought that always pops up for me whenever I talk about the original Animaniacs with friends is, I can't believe grown-ups used to let us WATCH that! There's no way they'd get away with most of those jokes today!Read More
New Kids On the Block are coming to virtual reality, and voices of Animaniacs are launching a musical tour. What year is it?Read More
I'm tired just watching it.
Animaniacs taught us the capitals of every state in the U.S. and the name of (almost) every country in the world, but it didn't teach us both—probably because it would have taken half an episode to get through them all.

It's a great big universe, and we're all really puny!
Oh, how I love this. If you grew up with the Animaniacs, I suspect you'll be as delighted as I was to learn that the talented Marian Call has lent her pipes to a cover of "Yakko's Universe."Read More
And All Was Right With the World
No word on Floyd the Barber in years, though.
Kids' WB! aired the best animated shows in the 90s; and, though I'll always have a special place in my heart for Animaniacs, Freakazoid! was my fave. In hindsight, this Spielberg-produced show (about a dude who downloads the internet into his brain) accurately predicted future online culture - about a decade before the internet was even a thing.Read More

You remember Animaniacs? How it was awesome? And kind of twisted? And had Slappy the Squirrel, who was the best ever? And how the Warner Bros. (and the Warner sister, Dot) would change the ending to their theme song every episode? YouTuber TammieRD has assembled a supercut of all the alternate endings, at least the ones available on DVD. The video's a few years old, but I just saw it, and there's never a bad time for Animaniacs. Click play and revisit your childhood.
