CARTOON ALL-STARS TO THE RESCUE was written by Sid & Marty Krofft writers.

Oh, the irony!
Clearly they were busted, and the government made them write it or else they would have to go to jail.

There's a neighborhood in Brooklyn called "Dumbo", and "Dumbo" actually stands for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass.
That is true. Soho is "South Of HOuston Street", Tribeca stands for TRIangle BElow CAnal Street, but they haven't found a way to shorten Washington Heights yet.

Apparently you don't get paid any prize money to break a world record. In fact, you have to pay to apply to break a world record.

I still remember when that aired, April 22, 1990 (the day after my birthday, or maybe it was my birthday, close enough).
What amazed me was all the red tape they had to push through with various studios to have all those characters in one place. Bugs Bunny, Muppet Babies, Smurfs, Ninja Turtles,... who are we missing?

The Boston accent has been voted the second-sexiest accent in America.


The Texan accent has been voted the sexist.

The girl who was Bill Murray's character's daughter in OSMOSIS JONES has, in recent years, quit acting, and relocated to my state, where she now has her own alternative rock band.
