Are you capable of being SHOCKED by cartoon trivia? If you answered “yes,” do you also enjoy being SHOCKED? If you answered “no” to either question, please read another article. This might bore you.

If you answered “yes,” then get ready to be…a little surprised…when you learn the identity of some of your favorite cartoon characters, many characters you aren’t familiar with, and some characters you might be familiar with, but don’t really care for.

It’s gonna be crazy. Watch this video, and learn who the stars were behind some of your favorite childhood (and adulthood) icons.

In case you haven’t gotten your Osbourne family Google alert, they’re back in the news. A Canadian production company has decided that what the great white north isn’t ready to let the reality family go just yet. Animation house Cuppa Coffee (ugh) is currently pre-selling the series that is pitched to be a 20-episode prime time series.

The name of the show? The F’n Osbournes. Exciting, isn’t it?

I don’t feel like waiting around for this show to air to declare that it totally sucks. Not just because it’s a ten-year old gimmick featuring a family that grates more and more as time marches on. Also, because cartoons depicting real people have a storied history of being awful. And here are seven examples to prove it.

Life with Louie

Some cartoon producer had a theory that kids love corpulent comedian Louie Anderson. And they were sort of right. While the idea of listening to Louie Anderson voice a cartoon character makes me want to cry, Life with Louie was a three-year hit for FOX on Saturday mornings, and garnered the network two Daytime Emmys. It focused on Louie’s actual upbringing, his ten siblings, and the constant teasing of him because of his weight. Sounds fun, right?

It wasn’t.

Pro Stars

Pro Stars was a horrible cartoon that children watched because it purported to star the three most popular athletes in the world, Wayne Gretzky, Michael Jordan, and Bo Jackson.

Of course, the aforementioned really had almost nothing to do with the show. They would appear in badly edited segments before the show which did nothing but demonstrat that they weren’t in the same room at the same time, and different voice actors read their lines in the animated segments.

In case you were wondering, Michael Jordan was the leader, Bo Jackson was the muscle, and Wayne Gretzky was the comic relief. You know. Because of how funny Wayne Gretzky is. Also, Wayne Gretzky was obsessed with food and eating on the show, which was never really explained.

This accumulation of crappiness resulted in the show getting canned after thirteen episodes. And in case you were wondering, a voice actor on the show is credited with playing both “Reggie Miller,” and “Evil Reggie Miller.” A Knicks fan would argue that there’s no difference between the two.

Sterling Archer gets around. That’s just part of being a suave, globe trotting man of mystery. For anyone watching the show, however, Archer’s frequent lady-getting can be difficult to keep track of. Here’s a quick guide to his more notable romantic excursions (a.k.a. a list of girls he’s banged). We expect this list to grow exponentially during season three, which begins tonight at 10 EST/PST on FX.

The Flight Attendant

The first Archer conquest we see is an unnamed flight attendant who appears in the show’s pilot episode. She wakes up in Archer’s apartment with a bruise on her ass shaped like a ping-pong paddle. Because that’s the kind of thing Archer is into.

Cheryl Tunt

The gossipy office secretary at ISIS, Tunt is the frequent (and willing) target of Archer’s romantic advances. She possesses a strong affinity for bizarre sexual fetishes, as well as a complete lack of intelligence.

7 Cartoons More Harmful To Children Than ‘Spongebob’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-lists/7-cartoons-more-harmful-to-children-than-spongebob-squarepants/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-lists/7-cartoons-more-harmful-to-children-than-spongebob-squarepants/#comments Wed, 14 Sep 2011 13:00:53 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=228183 Seriously, thanks for finding this out NOW.

The post 7 Cartoons More Harmful To Children Than ‘Spongebob’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

A recent study revealed that fast-paced cartoons like Spongebob Squarepants are responsible for melting the brains of preschool-aged children. That’s good to find out now, years after the show has been on the air, A.D.D.-ing an entire generation.

However, all of the blame shouldn’t fall squarely on that cheery little sponge. Cartoons have been warping minds for years by promoting violence, causing seizures, and creating young people naive to the ways of the world. These seven shows in particular are much more harmful to a growing mind than Spongebob.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

When I was a kid, this show was responsible for 98% of the groin-kickings on planet Earth. It was all but impossible to watch an episode with friends and not have the party end with someone keeled over cupping their budding gonads. Also, its essentially one big commercial for pizza which lead to a wave of overweight wannabe ninjas. Case in point, Steven Seagal.

Bambi

This one is on the list because it will wreck your shit. Remember how you felt when Bambi’s mom was murdered? Now imagine if you were a toddler and watching it by yourself. You’d think, “What a lazy deer,” and not learn the consequences of shooting someone. Then you’d be considered one of the dumbest toddlers in prison.

Tom and Jerry

Originally, Tom and Jerry featured some of the most violent imagery on television. And it was awesome. Then as kids began to hurt one another, producers were forced to have the cat and mouse bury the hatchet someplace other than Tom’s skull. That’s how Tom and Jerry and Friends came about.  I argue that the watered-down pussification of the material was actually more damaging. Living amongst rodents? That’s how plagues start.

‘Looney Tunes’ Headed Back to the Big (and Small) Screen http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/looney-tunes-headed-back-to-the-big-and-small-screen/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/looney-tunes-headed-back-to-the-big-and-small-screen/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 "Coyote Falls"? I don't get it? After years in hiding, Bugs Bunny and the gang are headed back to the big screen. In a throwback to the golden age of Warner Brothers cartoons, the studio is releasing three 3D shorts that will run in theaters before feature-length films. In addition, Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck are getting their own 26 episode show on Cartoon Network.This is the first major announcement from the Looney Tunes since they were sexually assaulted by NBA great Michael Jordan on the set of Space Jam 14 years ago Brendan Fraser on the set of Looney Tunes: Back in Action 7 years ago. Since cartoon characters are not protected under the law, Brendan got off on a technicality. But the event was so traumatizing that Bugs and company quit showbiz and hadn't been heard from since. Luckily, time heals all wounds, even the really stretched out cartoon kind.The first of the shorts, "Coyote Falls", will appear before the film Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore, which sounds stupid and opens on July 30. The TV series will premiere this fall, and will probably be canceled next spring. That's all, folks! (Coming Soon)
