Emo rat is so emo. If you don’t get the refererence you must not have grown up in the 90′s. Unfortunately embedding of the music video of Smashing Pumpkin’s “Despite All My Rage” is not allowed. What a great song, from a great time period in music. I’m glad someone was awesome enough to bring it’s memory back to me with this hilarious picture.
This is just a blatant abuse of his powers, but I can’t say that I wouldn’t do the same if I had the opportunity. I mean…America runs on Dunkin’ right? I know I do. I could eat me some donuts from them each and every day. Matter of fact it might be advantageous for me to become a police officer in order to allow this lifestyle whilst not being berated by my peers for falling into a sugar-laden coma from all the glazed, gooey in take.
50 years ago yesterday The Flintstones debuted at 8:30 on ABC. Produced by Hanna-Barbera, this classic cartoon went on to become one of the most iconic from the era. The original series was only six seasons long but many more episodes, movies and spin-offs have come from it.
The Flintstones wasn’t always named The Flintstones. In the pilot pitched to ABC, Fred and Wilma had the last name of Flagstone. After the series was picked up by the network, the title of the show was changed to The Gladstones for a short period of time to avoid confusion with the Flagstons of ‘Hi and Lois’ fame, and when it finally came to fruition they were known by what we know and love them by today, The Flintstones. Here is the lost pilot episode when they were still the Flagstones.
These awesome posters were made by DeviantArt artist OldRedJalopy He says about them:
This poster is based on the old boxing match promotional posters of the 30s and 40s, here advertising the big showdown between Obi-Wan Kenobi and the newly monickered Darth Vader.
These make me feel like a little boy again, and get’s me all excited to see them battle it out. What a fun and creative way to bring back a good old battle and make it lively. It reminds me of a more innocent time when matches like this were built up for months on end and the whole town would come together to root the pugilists on.
I love his small additions, like “No Radio. No Home TV.” or “Obi Wan Kenobi – Out of Retirement”. Hat’s off to OldRedJalopy for creating these masterpieces. I look forward to seeing other such works of art from him.
This is an ad for KFC in Australia using the cartoon characters Hugo & Holly. I love that they complain about not getting their fast food fix and “we sat getting thinner”. Not quite the same message they’re trying to get across these days.
