Hey, I didn't know if you knew or not (you probably do) but I discovered recently that the Club Scum announcer on Hobgoblins voices Cosmo and I thought you would find that interesting so Happy Halloween I guess.

Hi it's me Hawth, I understand you're into comics and anima? Ever hear of a lady called Lynda Barry? She wrote "Ernie Pooks Comeek" she got a new release of her greatest comics called the greatest Marlys book. She draws like a kid BUT it's the dialog of the kids that's totally "kid's speak" I like to call it. It's uncanny how she remembers how kids would say things, at least in a working class neiborhood.

ATTENTION: Don't upload a copy to youtube. I tried it and it gets instantly blocked worldwide because MGM has a copyright order on it and because it has 3 songs that are blocked also.

Best cameo on the new season?
For me, it's gotta be Mark Hamill. Luke Skywalker, the quintessential voice of Batman's classic foe the Joker, and.... MSTie? The man gets better with age!

I really miss the antics of Dr Forrester and tv's Frank. Wonder why his character was dropped from the show. Love the show but the new mads are boring

I've been gone for a while as I went through the new episodes at my own sweet leisurely pace. I wanted to avoid spoilers, you know. But now I'm back with my review -- overall impressions only. And overall, it wasn't as good as the Samurai Jack reboot.
But it wasn't bad either. I'd say the new episodes are better than the SciFi era, though trying to sustain a story arc was a shared liability. They just need to let the show be what it is. Some eps were quite good and others maybe not so much, but wasn't it always that way (more on that later)? And my faves won't be your faves. I give it about a 50-50 split.
The bad news: 1) The voices, well documented here as too similar in sound and delivery. Too often it seemed the guys were doing stand-up instead of acting.
2) Patton Oswalt seems miscast. I was pleasantly surprised by Kinga.
3) The mads suffer from Hypno-Helio Static Stasis. Can they not move even a little? If the direction remains "just stand there" they'll never achieve some of the great physical comedy of the golden age.
4) The movies weren't bad as much as they were bland (this is the "more" from above). Therefore, there were no classic riffs. I don't remember a single line that could be a call-back later, as the inspirationally bad movies of the past had.
5) They forgot to make the songs funny.
All these things can be improved, and again, overall, I think it's a good start just as Season 1 was. Highlights: (As the camera pans away from Bo Svenson and to the wooded background) "Hey! The cameraman is making a break for it! No fair!" and Black Harpo.

That was a real thing of playing music to the fetus to boost intelligence later on. Mostly classical music, and others may tried to play other instructional material to the infant through the same means. But as I remember, the science behind this is a bit iffy and inconclusive. No real proof that it boosts the infant's intelligence later. Whatever, just funny and even cool when one of Joel's experiments is also a thing outside the show.

Well, I finally got a hold of that clip from The Castle of Fu Manchu, so now I can ask for recommendations for an innuendo video. I'm mainly looking for innuendo made by Joel/Mike and the bots, but I'll take any innuendo I can get. Rawr. :3
