Oh Damn It: Nickelodeon Bringing Back the Classics is a Big Hoax

1 03 2011

Just today, Nickelodeon supposedly announced that because of their drastic ratings drop since they decided to move away from being cartoon-based, they will return some of their classic cartoons that we grew up on.

I’m talking Rugrats, Doug, Rocket Power and Hey Arnold!

Starting again on March 14th apparently!

EFF YES. This just made my freakin’ week.

Oh wait… hold on now.

This is one of the crappiest looking press releases I’ve ever seen.

Damn it, what a letdown.

I remember my friends and I had talked about this for years; about how Nick desperately needed to launch a 90s cartoon network because of the still-strong cartoon following.

Being the big SpongeBob fan that I remain to be, still airing that show alone on Nickelodeon is nice, but Nick’s lineup would’ve been beefed up on the ‘roids in a major way.

I would have been interested to see whether the cartoons would’ve pick up where they left off age-wise, or if the characters would be older now.

Regardless, Nick needs to scrap some of the BS shows they have on Nick. Random shows like Phineas & Ferb and Team Umizoomi… what the hell is that? Sounds like pure horsecrap.

The Nick higher-ups made big mistake after big mistake in ending their cartoons.

Other shows like Rocko’s Modern Life, Ren & Stimpy, Aaahh!!! Real Monsters, The Angry Beavers, CatDog or even The Wild Thornberrys were all big for our generation.

Either way, I think I speak for a lot of 90s kids when I say this hoax is just cruel.

I couldn’t wait to set my DVR.

I feel like Nicolas Cage in Deadfall right now.





Teaser trailer released for ‘The Hangover Part II’… Let the anticipation begin

24 02 2011

In 2009, ‘The Hangover’ was arguably one of the best comedies of the past decade.

Now, with the upcoming sequel ‘The Hangover Part II’ set to drop on May 26th, the first look at the new movie was released today.

A teaser trailer was put up on YouTube… and it seems that some serious shenanigans are going down in Bangkok following the wedding of Ed Helms’ character, Stu.

It even looks like Mike Tyson’s presence will indeed be felt on one of our protaganists’ face again, but this time, it won’t be via a right hook to Zach Galifianakis’ dome, it’ll be to Ed Helms’ face with Tyson’s iconic and moronic facial tattoo right around the left eye.

However, as much as I hate to say it, with all the ridiculously high expectations, I think The Hangover 2 is bound to be a disappointment. It’s extremely hard to top what the original did.

Mike Tyson’s great cameo and sucker punch of Zach Galifianakis.

Ken Jeong’s hilarious naked performance and great one-liners.

Basically all the crazy sh*t that happened… it all was too good and too funny.

I mean how can you top that?

I hope I’m wrong but either way, I’m forking out some cash to see it.
