    "People In Your Neighborhood" ice cream tune

    After trying to identify an unusual ice cream truck song I remember hearing a lot as a kid (which turned out to be the 1907 song "Red Wing") and getting a little obsessed with looking at videos of ice cream trucks on YT, I stumbled across this old news report from 1987 in Minot, ND where the...

    R.I.P. Charles Lazarus

    Talk about bad timing. If it wasn't bad enough that the revolutionary Toys "R" Us is dead from a combination of fierce competition from both brick-and-mortar & online business, its founder has died with it, at 94 from a respiratory illness. So in this case it should be more like "Я.I.P". :(...

    R.I.P. Glen Campbell

    Ten-time Grammy-winning country legend Glen Campbell, famous for songs such as "Rhinestone Cowboy" and "Galveston", has unfortunately succumbed to the Alzheimers he was diagnosed with six years earlier and passed away at age 81. Let us remember the fond times he had with Big Bird and Oscar and...

    Castlevania on Netflix

    Anyone else watch this show? It's definitely one of the best animated video game adaptations of all time, which is a low bar as we all know. It bases itself heavily on Castlevania III with the main characters it uses, and doesn't shy away from the violence it's known for. The 1st season is only...

    R.I.P. Tino Insana

    Well, hockey shockers. Never knew the guy best known for voicing Bushroot (Darkwing Duck) and Uncle Ted (Bobby's World) died last month at 69.

    R.I.P. Roger Moore

    Can't believe no one reported this yet. It sucks that cancer took his life after surviving it back in 1993, but it is great to see he got to live to 89.

    O.K. K.O.! Let's Be Heroes

    I remember Drtooth bringing this up in a couple of threads, but Cartoon Network has actually greenlit this show that started off as a series of shorts and a mobile game under the title Lakewood Plaza Turbo, and is now bringing it to a full series. It's about the employees of a strip mall in a...

    R.I.P. Chuck Barris, game show producer and host of "The Gong Show"

    It's funny, I was just thinking of Chuck Barris after hearing of Chuck Berry's death. But now he has died of natural causes at 87, so I kinda feel bad now. Barris was a real mad scientist when it came to game shows. The...

    The stop-motion thread

    This is a thread dedicated to that wonderfully magical, yet dying art that is stop-motion. Whether it be from movies, TV shows, commercials, what have you, if it's shot one frame at a time with physical objects, it's welcome here. By way of, there's going to be a stop-motion film...

    R.I.P. John Glenn

    Astronaut and senator John Glenn Jr., noted for being the first American to orbit Earth back in 1962 and the fifth person to journey into space, passed away of unknown causes today at 95 years old. So amazing that Glenn was willing to go back into space well into his golden years and become the...

    Nintendo makes the Switch!

    Pun totally intended here. :) This is Nintendo's newest system called the Switch (formerly known by its codename the NX), a console/handheld hybrid that seems like a bizarre cross between their last two...

    The Mighty Magiswords thread

    CN's little webseries-turned-full series about a sibling mercenary duo and their seemingly endless arsenal of magical swords has begun to grow on me, even though I feel it could use its expanded run time more to develop characters and tell deeper stories, maybe even slow down its rapid-fire...

    The BS of the MPAA

    The Motion Picture Association of America's ratings system sure is a joke nowadays, isn't it? Stricter guidelines for sex over violence, PG ratings for otherwise G-rated movies (mainly in the animation department), and worst of all, the absolute death sentence for anything given the ultimate...

    The Son of Zorn thread

    So far, this live-action/animated Fox sitcom is off to a good start. I like how Zorn isn't a fish-out-of-water and knows a good deal about Earth customs, and how his homeworld of Zephyria appears to be seen as just as ordinary as any other place on Earth. I also like how the ex-wife divorced...

    The driving experiences thread

    After finally getting my license at age 28, I feel I would create a thread all about driving and anything related to it. Whether getting your first license, your first car, or first road rage incident, if it's related to cars, it's all good here. I can safely say that the road test was a piece...

    The game show thread

    This is a thread made specifically to talk about game shows, good or bad, past or present. I've been watching The Price is Right and Let's Make a Deal more often recently, as I've been busy staying home to hunt for jobs. Drew Carey and Wayne Brady are no Bob Barker and Monty Hall, but they have...

    R.I.P. Elie Wiesel

    Nobel prize-winning political activist, professor, and peace advocate Elie Wiesel had passed away at 87 yesterday at his Manhattan home. He is best known for being one of the few lucky survivors of the Holocaust, and since surviving that horror at Auschwitz, he has spoken out against hatred and...

    The All-Purpose Transformers thread

    While we have a thread for Robots in Disguise on Cartoon Network, I think we should have one where fans could talk about any Transformers TV show, toyline, comic book, movie, you name it. Let me start this off by saying that, while I do enjoy Rescue Bots and its sharp writing for a...

    The Miraculous Ladybug thread

    I quite like this French magical girl series/sentai show. Even though it's a might reminiscent of Randy Cunningham in its approach to its supervillain (he corrupts ordinary people with negative emotions who then have to be purified by the hero), it was in development first, and the creators of...
