The Caesar of Citrus Reaches New Pulp-ortions This Summer


Fruits and vegetables are very vital parts of a healthy life and well-balanced diet. Apples fill you with antioxidants, grapes carry nutrients and vitamins, carrots carry vitamins that are helpful in bettering the vision, and so on. And some fruits are different than others, such as the different types of tomatoes (roma, greenhouse, on-the-vine, etc.) and determining if something is seeded or seedless. But the fruit we’re talking about today is the most diverse of all. Not in color, taste, but mostly appearance. And this fruit’s job is to annoy the heck out of you, and it’s done one chock full of its job, as it is #10 on the list of our top 100 YouTubers with almost 3 million subscribers. If you don’t appreciate him, you’ll have to deal with his posse of other foods. He is the Annoying Orange, and this time he’s gone where no inhuman YouTube star has ever gone…your television screen.

Yep, the multi-million-viewed proportions of the Caesar of citrus are finally going up on TV! And it’s about time that Orange and company finally got their own show–they’ve practically been asking for it! See how in just a short track of time, Fred became a cyberspace sensation, and now he’s handling his own Nickelodeon show! :roll: Well, Orange may not be on Nickelodeon, but he’s on a channel that definitely suits his needs–Cartoon Network! :D The Annoying Orange (or, as advertised, The High Fructose Adventures of Annoying Orange) is easier said than said the TV adaptation of the smash hit series, currently produced by Dane Boedigiheimer–just call him Dane Boe–and his company Gagfilms (also Dane’s companion channel on YouTube), plus a management company called The Collective. Everyone from the original series is back, but the show will take place on a fruit vending cart instead of  the usual kitchen. Oh, and besides the food-filled cast, there’s also a character that’s the only human on the show: the wacky scientist/fruit seller Nerville, played by none other than our good friend Toby “Tobuscus” Turner! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: Besides Toby, there will be some other humans that are only guest stars on the show: Jeffrey Tambor, Billy Dee Williams, Felicia Day, among others. News about this show first kindled back in April 2010, and in October that year Dane finished the scripts for the first six episodes. In February the next year he began filming and underwent discussions with Cartoon Network about airing the show, which was picked up that November. The show is currently running on a budget of $2,000. That’s enough money to buy 8 Wiis off Amazon, no game bundle included. :)

The show is currently being produced by Dane, Tom Sheppard, and Conrad Vernon (known for work on Shrek and Monsters vs. Aliens). The co-executive producers are Spencer Grove, Aaron Massey, and YouTube stars Kevin Brueck (kevinbrueck) and Robert Jennings (bobjenz). The show will use similar animation of the series, and besides a sneak peek that aired on Memorial Day this week, the show’s series premiere will be on Cartoon Network, and instead of being in the fall (like previous statements foreshadowed), it will premiere 2 Mondays from now on the 11th! :mrgreen: Mark your calendars, YouTube fans; this adventure may have more sweets than your stash of candy. Don’t lie. I’ve seen it. :shock: Famous voices on the show will include:

  • Justine Ezarik, famous online as ijustine, as the voice of Passion Fruit whom is Orange’s secret love interest. :oops: Whoops, did I go TMI?
  • John DiMaggio, famous as the voice of Gears of War‘s Marcus Fenix as well as Futurama‘s Bender, as a character that is to be determined.
  • Dee Bradley Baker, famous for his voicing work on SpongeBobFairly OddParents, etc., as a character that is to be determined. ;)
  • Tom Kenny, famous as the voice of SpongeBob himself and as the announcer of numerous KCA shows, as a character that is to be determined. ;)
  • Rob Paulsen, famous as the voice of the TMNTs’ “rebel” Raphael in the 1987 cartoons, as well as work in shows like Animaniacs, as a character that is to be determined.

If I were you, I wouldn’t eat that orange, because it’s a manifestation of what you’re gonna see on June 11th. If you eat it, you’re reducing hunches of hard work to nothing but pulp, citrus, and peel pieces! :-x Anyway, if you didn’t check out the series sneak peek (“Marshmalia”), that’s okay; there are tons of other rerunning airtimes available, like how I watched the sneak peek a day after it aired! Anyways, don’t be an apple; check out the high-fructose adventures of our deliciously loyal pals when they hit the big screen on Monday, June 11th only on Cartoon Network! Canadian fans, you’ll have to wait until the 4th of July. German fans, you really will have to wait until this fall. Either way, however you cut this treat, it’s still gonna be sweet on all sides. :mrgreen:

You know what to do: like, rate, comment, reblog, share, laugh, and knife stab that subscribe button in the face! But for now, this is Sammwak signing out, but we’ll awesomify things again next week. Oh, and make sure to tune in to the Annoying Orange show’s series premiere on Monday, June 11th, only on Cartoon Network!  :D

p.s. Would You Rather o’ the Week: Would you rather…be a fruit that was killed by Knife, or be Knife and kill all the fruit?

p.p.s. Random Video o’ the Week: The NBC cult series The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. The acclaimed Disney-Pixar duo Up and Monsters, Inc. The Walt Disney Animated Classic Alice in Wonderland (the 1951 take). One of Disney’s most successful and memorable movies, Mary Poppins. A commercial success but critical failure, Steven Spielberg’s Peter Pan take Hook. Among others. What do these sources of media have in common? They’ve all been remixed seemingly perfectly by Nick “Pogo” Bertke, and have hit great receptions on YouTube. Once you take a look at these videos, you’ll find out why.

So…what did you see? :D

Game n Vote – Thrills and Chills


Hey it’s Sam, and when gaming and voting collide, we have another fresh-off-the-grill Game n Vote to kick off the beginning of August! :D Another one from Flapjack (click here if you missed the first), this game takes the water and freezes it into a winter wonderland in today’s harbor adventure, Thrills and Chills.

The title screen has to be the most enticing aspect of the game itself.

If you thought Adventure Bound was a ridiculous concept, you ain’t seen nothing yet! It has to be the easiest, most tedious, and most nettlesome* game I’ve ever played. (*nettlesome = annoying) Do you know how hard it was to compensate to that pestiferous theme song while making this post alone?

THE STORYLINE

Flapjack has found a new winter adventure: Flipping and flying all over Stormalong Harbor!…Yes, that’s it.

THE CONCEPT

You have to make Flapjack do flips on a piece of wood as the snowy, woody ground slopes down, curves up, and makes gaps to trick over…or fall into, which is A) hilarious, and B) what that little kid deserves. If this is the future of Tony Hawk games, then I’ll never buy another Activision product again.

Flapjack flips out!

THE PRESENTATION

The game has an interface with ‘PLAY’ carved into the snow (what.), and some wintery music playing in the background. But all the game breaks down to is: Jump, make a trick. Jump, make another trick. Jump, bail face-first. Rinse and repeat. There’s no collection of levels to progress onto; it’s just one undersized level that you have the power to begin, but you don’t know when it ends. There’s not even any other characters, or better boards. It’s just Flapjack and a lousy piece of wood. Would you want to play that for a half hour?

THE GAMEPLAY

This is another Flapjack game where the mouse is a main component. With your cursor in play, you click to crouch, and release to jump. Airborne, you click to do flips for speed and extra time. There’s pretty much nothing beyond that. So, it’s kind of a letdown. I guess I’ll have to say it now: SON, I AM DISAPPOINT. It’s easier than peeling a banana, but as tedious as the latest Harry Potter game. Maybe even more.

The easiest controls in the world, in a nutshell.

THE PLUSSES

You’re probably wondering, “Sam, why are there even any plusses?” And, my friend, it’s because I SAID SO. (The nicer way to translate it is, “Because there simply are plusses.”)

  • :) At least the controls are easy to learn.
  • :) When you pick up speed, it gets more “thrilling” than usual.
  • :) At least the Flapjack model looks good.

THE MINUSES

Oh, here we go…

  • :( The game has the most annoying theme song ever. (Adventure Bound, you’ve been dethroned.) And when it ends, it loops right back into the beginning.
  • :( You’re more likely to bail than to boost, and did I mention the time spent bailing clocks in at 3 SECONDS?!?!
  • :( You don’t know when the level will end. You could be preparing for an epic trick, but then Flapjack bails off board himself and begins dancing, which marks the end of the thrills and chills.
  • :( Did I mention that you can’t play again? No, literally. You try to hit ‘PLAY AGAIN’, and the game is unresponsive. Ignorant.
  • :( You’re doomed for a face full of snow when you wind back on the tip of your board? >:( It’s like doing a manual, and those always work!!!
  • :( No voice acting. None at all. No “whees”, no hysterical laughter, no “oofs” in mid-bail? That’s another slab of perfectly good character stripped away.
  • :( The worst sound effects ever in a game. When you bail, it sounds like a car horn mixed with a swung golf club.
  • :( The most tedious and repetitive Flapjack game I’ve ever played. (Adventure Bound, you just got dethroned again!)

You call this rewarding? I call it punishment.

THE VERDICT

For a frosty frolic, Thrills and Chills is not your ideal game with tedious gameplay, an annoying theme song, and bad sound effects. But for all who are desperate for something wintery, you could give it a try…but don’t come to me looking all disappointed and say, “Sam told me to.” This game gets a “fair” 6.0 out of 10. Or, as IGN would do it…

Awesome? I know, I know. If you enjoy this post, and you are a WordPress blogger, than please like me, and to any of you out there who don’t even know what WordPress is, please subscribe to me. And thus concludes another Game n Vote! Check back for more in the weeks to come, and remember: What you think isn’t really is even though it seems it isn’t but it really is what it is. Isn’t it?

Game n Vote – Adventure Bound


Hey guys it’s Sam, and it’s been long since we’ve had a personal time to game and vote. Well, here we are, and this game is yet again, from Cartoon Network. But this one’s not from Adventure Time; it’s from Flapjack. I know that show hasn’t been around since the late summer of 2010, where it was cancelled but ended. This game is an adventure at sea, and it’s real adventure bound…that’s why it’s called Adventure Bound.

Flapjack scores some precious loot in-game.

It’s a good thing that the games of forgotten Cartoon Network shows are still around, because I’d never find this game without them. And for a sailor’s venturing, it’s actually pretty fun. The concept may be freaking ridiculous, but at least there are some solid sound effects to captivate those moments.

THE STORYLINE

It’s actually just that Flapjack and K’nuckles want to find treasure in the sky, only what the bravest, most adventurous adventurers would do. No, seriously that’s what Captain K said himself.

K'nuckles explains the storyline.

THE CONCEPT

This is the concept which I said was “freaking ridiculous”: You control Bubbie the whale (with Flapjack and Captain inside), and click to send one adventurer in the sky through her spout, and it’s your job to catch them before they bounce into the sea. And don’t forget them precious chains/combos. Pretty ludicrous, huh?

THE PRESENTATION

Adventure Bound has a sleek user interface with that sailor feel, such as seaside sounds of anchors and birds, but the noise is too much when you just want to hit play. However, the venturing gets old, and there’s little variation from one level to the next. And it actually takes more time than expected to recover a player overboard.

GAMEPLAY

The gameplay is so easy, a caveman could…play it. (Geico sue deflect!) It just consists of moving your mouse to control Bubbie, and click to send a player into the air. A little too easy, but I have to say, the gameplay does come out clean. It has good interest rate attractions, the situations remind you of the show, and it’s actually easier than you think.

THE PLUSSES

  • :) The interface is well-crafted.
  • :) The gameplay is easy to learn for beginners.
  • :) Good environments to fess up for corked visuals.
  • :) Controls have great, if not perfect, outcomes.
  • :) Yes, there are badges, which equal goals to strive for.

THE MINUSES

But here’s the thing…

  •  :( There’s no pausing, let alone getting out. Is it Super Smash Flash 2 again?
  • :( The main levels are awfully easy, even at level 5 or higher. And the amount of coins there is in environments like bubbles and seagulls might be near to impossible to catch without losing a matey.

IS THAT POSSIBLE?!?!

  • :( No one talks. No one at all (excluding the horrific voice acting). No hysterical laughter, no “Whees”, not even any startled cries falling overboard?
  • :( You send out adventurers at random. You don’t know what to expect. It’s not like Tetris, where you can know what block is next, and hold it or anything.
  • :( At the bottom right, you’ll see your progress bar. (That’s what I call it.) It has Bubbie on it (you), and it swims as you swim to track your progress. However, it can swim off the bar and off screen….
  • :( Speaking of the bonus game, it starts out easy, but it gets punishingly hard. You have to click faster than a running gazelle. That’s why the “Get x8 in the Bonus Game” is impossible to get.
  • :( The voice acting is abominable. Flapjack and K’nuckles alike both sound like screaming men.
  • :( Not a completely reasonable storyline.
  • :( Awfully repetitive.
  • :( The most annoying game music I’ve ever heard, even if it does fit the situation.
  • :( During the main level, if you see the first photo I uploaded, Flapjack looks awfully sketchy. And then it always pretends like nothing happened with…

Even if you fall overboard five times, it's still the best adventure ever.

The whole bonus game, in one picture.

THE VERDICT

Adventure Bound isn’t the best Flapjack game out there, as it gets quite old, and quite tedious, quite fast, but for beginning Flapjack gamers, with its enticing controls and down-to-earth environments, what more could you ask for? My final score is a “good” 7.5 out of 10. Or, as IGN would do it..

Pretty impressive, huh? Anyways, you can check out Adventure Bound yourself by following the rainbow…just kidding, just follow this link. Happy spouting!

Game n Vote – Splash Master


Hi to all. It’s me Sam, and whoops, again! It’s been seconds, that turn into minutes, that turn into hours, that turn into days, that turn into weeks, that turn into months, that turn into YEARS since I’ve given you a Game n Vote. I’m sorry, but I’m such a procrastinator these days. So, in my return of sincere apology, I’m BACK with a handful of more gaming and voting! Today’s game is from the brand-new Cartoon Network animated comedy, The Amazing World of Gumball. Heard of it? A cat named Gumball, and his fish-with-legs friend Darwin? Well,  the Interwebs finally decided to make a game for it…from thence, Splash Master was born.

I just heard about this game through an ad on Cartoon Network itself, during a commercial break. The real backstory of this game is super-catchy: Gumball and Darwin are looking for the most epic swimming dive. The two take turns diving off a board. In the air will be shining rings, and obstacles (mostly birds and flowerpots, for me). Your job is to collect enough rings to reach the target of required rings, while avoiding obstacles. If you run into one, you’ll lose some rings (which eventually will come floating down)! For extra flair, click your mouse to do stylish tricks, like when Darwin holds his arms to make a heart, and Gumball outstretches his arms while his legs are curled in; all of this done upside down. The board keeps getting bumped up, and so is the target amount of rings. You’ll be diving to shake paws, or fins, with the moon, but it gets a little wacky once you’re high-diving in SPACE! (Try shaking hands with E.T.) If you collect enough rings, your objective now is to click again to form a cannonball to land into the water, making a humongous namesake splash. Nicole, Richard, and Anais will be waiting, and they will give you a score on your dive, the maximum being 10. Splash Master has 46, 942 players…can you be one? I set a super high score of 242, 350 points, making me a “True Pro” diver. Can you beat that?

All of this makes the game a very enticing pick, but let’s talk about its downside. If you dive what you believe is a perfect dive, the judges might still give you scores lower than 10. That means those judges are critical. And after becoming a True Pro diver, the drops get faster, giving you less time to collect all the rings. TOO MUCH OF A CHALLENGE HERE, GUYS! Give us a couple more Easy As! And the ability to only play as Gumball and Darwin ONLY gets very tiresome along the way. And besides, you know how funny it would’ve been to see Richard all out? And WHAT THE HECK IS A SWAN DIVE?!!!? I spent several MINUTES trying to unleash a swan dive, but the game still leaves me baffled! They should have more easy controls next time. Hopefully,  if they give this game a sequel (like Adventure Time‘s Sound Castle and Righteous Quest), they’ll fill all these empty cups for us. Capiche?

My final score for the game is a .5 out of 10. And if you remove that decimal, that makes a 75 out of 100. Now go out there. Get jiggy with it. Become the ultimate Splash Master (that is, if you can beat me)!

Happy diving!

————————-

So, you’re back after an epic diving adventure. Now I have a couple polls for you to fill in.

But that’s just the first step in my weekly walk in the park. Check back tomorrow and the rest of the week for more gaming, more voting, and more Gaming n Voting! Oh, and I almost forgot! If you have an account on Cartoon Network, look for these badges on the way. (Boldfaced badges show ones I have already received.)

A badge for performing every trick in a single dive.

A badge for completing a dive without getting any rings.

A badge for performing a swan dive.

A badge for performing a dive from space.

A badge for collecting 300 rings in a single dive.

A badge for scoring three perfect 10s in a single dive.

——————————————————————————–

Yeah, I know that stupid swan dive has me perplexed every time. >:(

Well, this is goodbye from Sammwak for now! Check back for more…oh, I already told you that!

Doug


Hello there, viewers. It’s me, Sam. And it’s time to take a look and reminisce back in time. Go back to the 1990s, where Street Fighter II changed the face of fighting forever, Mario Kart 64 made a slam-bang drift into our hearts, and that good Crash Bandicoot arrived. But in the 1990s, there was also another time. The time where TV ratings got so low, that a bunch of animated cartoons started swallowing airing times. Some people call it the “invasion of the animation.” Others the “cartoon boom.” I call it “Nickelodeon in the 90s.”

Nick, as we all know it is today, is the top cable channel since April 1979, not to be confused with its launch on December 1977 as “Pinwheel.” It was also literally the first channel aiming at kids, dating back to Pinwheel days. But Nickelodeon really did have lots of cartoons in the 90s. I even have a good list of them: Angry Beavers, Hey Arnold!, and even Rugrats. But one show really stood out that I enjoy today. Yes, it was animated. It was hilarious, life-oriented, and a total fit-in with my comic writing. That show was called…

Doug. Not much afterward, just Doug. If you’ve ever heard of this post a little or a lot, please like this post at the bottom.

Doug was one of Nick’s many TV series involved in the cartoon boom. Running from 1991 to 1994, then getting picked up by Disney from 1996 to 1999 (ending actually after SpongeBob began), the show was based on its titular protagonist, Doug–I dare you to try not to laugh or grin–Funnie. A grade-schooler from Bloatsburg into Bluffington, the show follows the exploits of Doug and his misadventures on and off school. How this ties into my comic writing is that Doug is an actual comic-maker himself. His comic characters are superhero Quailman, secret agent Smash Adams,  explorer Race Canyon, crime-stopper the Chameleon, cowboy Durango Doug, outlaw Jack Bandit, and Wafflestomper.

One thing I liked about it was its short but sweet and epic theme song, composed by genius Fred Newman. I think it was the theme that got me hooked in the first place. I mean, come on, dude. How can you stare ahead and ignore a theme song like THIS?

It’s just impossible.

Well, I guess that’s all for now. Check out YouTube for more Doug!

Cartoon Network Friday Night of Action


Do you love action? Do you love Cartoon Network? Do you love watching action ON Cartoon Network? Congratulations. Your night has come. That’s right; calling all action-lovers, brace yourselves for tomorrow night…it’s a whole night of slam-bang actions on Cartoon Network! 4 shows will be aired, which I know isn’t a lot. But those titles are…

Generator Rex

A creation of “Man of Action”, this animated action stars an amnesiac hero voiced by Spy Kid Daryl Sabara (Juni, anyone?).

Star Wars: The Clone Wars

The sci-fi action TV series still running off of the 2008 CGI movie of the same name, which critics are still saying was pretty suckish.

Young Justice

A new action series on Cartoon Network adapted from the actual DC Comics superhero team of the same name. Sixteen teenager heroes are noted to be part of the group, counting the mentors.

Ben 10: Alien Force

Another unforgettable creation of “Man of Action” (see Generator Rex) that is the 3rd incarnation of Ben 10 so far. You have heard of Ben, right? The kid that can turn into different alien forms? Yeah, that’s him.

Fasten your seatbelts, action-hoarders! Because you have a whole night to hoard that’s full of what you love. Oh, me? I’ll probably skip the show (I’m not an action-hoarder; no offense) and do other more important stuff. Not that the show’s not important, it’s just…oh, you see my point.

So, action night begins Friday at 8/7c (I think)! If the time is different, don’t blame me. Oh, well. I guess that’s all I have to tell you about. Oh, wait! Stay tuned for a big surprise coming to Sammwak. I’m sure it’ll blow you away…

Game n Vote – Trash n Dash


I’m sorry that I haven’t released a Game n Vote in months’ time, but I’ll make it up to you with a load of new games for voting this week! The first one is a Cartoon Network that I truly enjoy. I even have a couple badges for it, too. This is for those who are fans of Regular Show.

The climax of the entire game, respectively.

So, you are Mordecai or Rigby, and you need to pick up enough trash (apple cores, pieces of paper, etc.) to proceed to the next level. But there are obstacles in your way that grow bigger within every level. At first, you’re stuck trying to dodge the lawn mowers. If you get mowed, you fall into a black puddle. But if you click elsewhere, you’re back up and running again. If you pick up 5 pieces of trash, you either receive a marble worth 50 (be careful, it rolls!), or–even BETTER–Skips. All you need is to collect the whistle to blow it, and Skips will zigzag through the entire landscape, stunning all of the obstacles (except for volcanoes).

If you have enough, you can even plant stink bombs, that detonate on contact with a lawn mower or unicorn and such. Yeah, unicorns are TOO obstacles. You can even get badges for this game, for there aren’t a lot. I can even list them:

A badge for clearing level 3.

A badge for clearing level 4.

A badge for clearing level 5.

A badge for clearing level 7.

A badge for picking up 100 pieces of trash.

..And a final badge for getting all the others!

If you want to play for these badges, log in (or if you don’t have a profile, GET ONE) and start picking up some TRASH! I can’t tell you MY username and password, but if you see Amusing Chip Shuriken anywhere, on the homepage, on Fan Talk threads…that’s yours truly.

http://www.cartoonnetwork.com/games/regularshow/trashndash/index.html

Happy trashing!

……….

So you’ve been defeated. Now, I got a couple questions to ask…

Check back for more Game n Votes throughout the week!

Sincerely yours,

Sam

MAD


Hey guys it’s Sam and I have a new second-favorite show on Cartoon Network. It is hands down almost the funniest Cartoon Network show I’ve seen since Adventure Time. Honestly. But if you like the MAD magazine, an extreme makeover of Superman’s Fortress of Solitude, the faces of Mount Rushmore becoming the phenomenal Big Time Rushmore, and Robert Pattison and Taylor Lautner getting caught on the Kiss Cam, then you’ll love…

MAD is one of Cartoon Network’s new animated comedies introduced in late September 2010. MAD is a sketch comedy, which means it contains brief comedic scenes that are dubbed “sketches” that last approximately between 1 or 10 minutes long. They usually parody movies, TV shows, celebs, vice versa, or what I’d like to call….POP CULTURE. I’ve seen 6 episodes of MAD so far, and each episode holds two sketches. So if six times two equals twelve, I’ve seen twelve sketches overall. As an addition, segments of Spy vs Spy (one of the magazine’s comic strips, in wordless black-and-white) are also featured on the show, like they were in the magazine. If you’ve seen this face…

Be lucky. Because that face belongs to none other than Alfred E. Neuman, the cover boy/mascot for MAD. Period. That easy, breezy, handsome cover boy.

MAD has only aired twelve episodes, so don’t be disappoint. They haven’t even renewed a second season…YET. But here’s a list of all the episodes in the downtime (the ones emboldened are the ones I’ve seen):

“Avaturd, CSiCarly” – September 6, 2010
Jake Smelly goes off to learn the ways of the Na’vi. The CSI: Miami gang and the iCarly gang solve the case of a dead man at a TGIFridays.

Trans-Bore-Mores, Groan Wars” – September 13, 2010
The Transboremores search for the Rock of No-Talent-Tron…while going on vacation. The Republic tries to stop the evil Count Poo-Poo.

“2012 Dalmatians, Grey’s in Anime” – September 20, 2010
Dalmatian puppies of all sizes are behind the rampant disasters said to happen in the year 2012. The doctors try to prevent a patient from dying…in an anime style.

Star Blecch, uGlee” – September 27, 2010
The Star Blecch crew tries to stop Captain Zero from destroying Schlock’s homeworld. The Glee club prove that they can bring in the crowds — by admitting that their premise of teens “singing in high school” is no different than the premises for High School Musical, Hannah Montana, Victorious, JONAS, and Fame.

Wall-E-Nator, Extreme Renovation: House Edition – Superman’s Fortress of Solitude” – October 4, 2010
The WALL*E-Nator tries to prevent the world from being covered in trash. The Extreme Renovation crew tries to change Superman’s Fortress of Solitude so he can get intact with social life.

Pirates of the Neverland: At Wit’s End, Batman Family Feud” – October 11, 2010
Captain Jack Sparrow tries to help Captain Hook defeat Peter Pan. The Batman family tries to get on the Family Feud to capture the Riddler.

“Cliffordfield, Big Time Rushmore”     October 18, 2010
Clifford the Big Red Dog attacks New York City. A big record producer recruits George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln as singers for his new rock band.

“Fantastic Megan Fox, Mad vs. Wild”     October 25, 2010

“I Love You, Iron Man, Ben 10 Franklin”     November 1, 2010
Iron Man goes in search of a guy friend through various other superheroes. Benjamin Franklin obtains a strange device that can change him into different aliens, prompting him to take revenge on the British and a high school bully.

“S’up, Mouse M.D.” – November 15, 2010
When Carl Fredricksen takes his house to the sky, he winds up meeting the obnoxious cast members from MTV’s Jersey Shore. Dr. Mouse tries to solve three medical cases involving Cookie Monster, Bob the Builder, and Miley Cyrus.

The DaGrinchy Code, Duck” – November 22, 2010
Something is wrong in the city by the Grinch. Chuck is parodied with a duck as the title character.

…….

If you want the intro, btw…:

……..

Check out more sketchy, silly, parodying episodes in January that are guaranteed to drive you…MAD! Oh, and yes, this is TV-PG so it won’t get sucked into the morbid world of Adult Swim.

Hey guys it’s Sam, and I’m celebrating a very very happy…wait, ELATED New Year! Now, if you haven’t checked out Cartoon Network lately, and I mean LATELY, you’d know this show existed. But not so late, Adult Swim took over. At 8:00, this show airs. I’ve actually gotten some taste in it. I just saw my first episode yesterday night, and I’m really starting to get a kick out of it. If you like dynamic duo animal comedies, you’ll love…

In this animated comedy, a blue jay named Mordecai and a raccoon named Rigby work as groundskeepers and try to entertain themselves, but their gumball machine friend Benson is disapproving of it. Their friends also include yeti Skips, Pops, naive English gentleman with the lollipop-shaped head, and even High-Five Ghost, the ghost with a hand off his head! Here’s a picture, from left to right, Pops, Skips, Benson, Rigby, Mordecai:

But don’t worry, it’s TV-PG. It’s not TV-14 or TV-MA, where it’s instantly transported into the morbid world of Adult Swim. But you can catch new episodes in January. Why not today? Adventure Time‘s New Years’ Eve marathon has eaten up all the airings starting from 4:00 until 9:00, when Adult Swim kicks in. But catch the Regular Show in January 2011! YEAAA-AAAH!

Adventure Time w/ Finn & Jake


Hey guys it’s Sam and if you’ve seen Cartoon Network, you’ve probably heard of this show. I’ve become a new fan of it. Like, really. I’ve caught all the episodes on-demand, and I’m willing to catch more off-demand. What time is it? Well, it, my friend, is ADVENTURE TIME.

This is one of the “new” shows introduced to Cartoon Network in September. It was actually based on a short that became an Internet sensation before it was brought to TV in April. If you don’t know what it’s about, I pity you. It’s about this 12-year old human boy named Finn who somewhat enjoys kicking evil forces in their hineys, and is skilled at all types of combat. It is a mystery, but all we know is that he was born from a cabbage. He really has blonde hair, but he wears an ‘awesome hat’ to conceal it. He’ll outburst and strangely exclaim anything he pleases, and is also bad at math, although he can blurt out stuff like, “Mathematical!”, “Algebraic!”, and “Rhombus!” And here’s the thing that makes me jealous for Finn. Since he ate this small computer, whenever he sings, he sings Auto-tune! Yeah, like Ke$ha! And the thing that makes me super-jealous is that he has a 28-year old (in “magical dog years”) dog named Jake that has cool magic powers! Not so majesto! (That’s what my eldest sister says to mean, “Cool!”) Along the way, this dynamic dog-and-dude duo meet characters like:

Princess Bubblegum, the ruler of Candy Kingdom and the love interest of Finn. Yes, Finn does too have a crush on her.

Ice King, the ruler of Ice Kingdom and the kidnapper of princesses, forcing them to marry him. I know, vague and disgusting, right? If you catch him sky high with his beard, flee. Or else he could zap you into a block of ice with his ‘frozen lightning bolts’! Fear his population of snow and ice monsters, but when you come in contact with his horrifying Ice-o-pede…nighty-night.

Lady Rainicorn - This creepy unicorn-rainbow crossover unicorn that turns out to be Jake’s boyfriend. Her horn can turn things various colors. Oh, and she speaks Korean! Yeah, you heard me. She speaks KOREAN, like “Annyeonghaseyo!” and “Annyeong!”

Lots more crazy stuff happen when it’s adventure time. Catch Adventure Time Monday nights on Cartoon Network!
