Holiday Party Threads / One last post before Christmas...
« on: December 24, 2014, 08:04:09 pm »
walks outside all depressed. He stops by Lucy's psychiatrist stand.

: 50 cents for psychiatrist help! Good grief!

: The price was raised due to inflation.

: Man, the economy makes the holidays more depressing!

: What seems to be the trouble?

: I'm depressed. I thought I made the best holiday fish ever, but it ended up being a disaster. Linus thought it tasted awful.

: If you don't mind me asking, where did you get the recipe?

: How to Cook for Forty Humans. Here, I have the book with me.

: (going through the book and finding the Christmas fish recipe) Charlie Brown, this Christmas fish is 4,500 calories! Do you know what that could do to people?

: It could make them fat?

: Exactly! If people ended up liking your fish, you would have put them in danger of gaining some of those holiday pounds.

: Well, I guess I'm sort of a hero! I guess that sort of makes people want to treat me with respect!

: Exactly! No go inside, and have some fun.

: Thanks, Lucy! (goes back inside)

: Then again, if people did gain weight from the fish, they could've talked to me about the emotional side effects of being overweight while checking their weights on the coin-operated scale next to me. Well, maybe there's more fattening foods at the party. could definitely gain some weight.

Holiday Party Threads / Charlie Brown's Christmas Fish
« on: December 24, 2014, 07:47:35 pm »
Back inside...

: I finally done it! After so many years, I made the perfect holiday fish!

: It looks good, Chuck! Now everyone is going to love it!

: Here, Linus! Why don't you try a sampling of my fish.

chews some of the fish and makes a disgusted face.

: Well, um, I...

: Charles, it looks like Linus isn't a fan of your fish.

: Marcie's right. It isn't very good.

: Aaugh! Everything I touched gets ruined!

: Cheer up, Charlie Brown. Maybe you can make some Christmas toast!

: I can't even make that without messing everything up!

: Well, you can feed it to the dog.

: Here , you can have the fish I made. I don't think it should go to waste.

Holiday Party Threads / Extra Holiday Pounds
« on: December 24, 2014, 07:33:20 pm »
Out on the street,  :sniff: is seen lonely and sad...
 
:sniff: : Once again, Mary Jane did not make it to the party. (sniff, sniff)

Ness: Hey, buddy! Why are you so sad? It's Christmas Eve!

 :sniff: : My special friend Mary Jane hasn't shown up yet.

Ness: Mary Jane!? I think I know her. She was at the Videoville Christmas Party. Buddy, I don't think she is going to make it anytime soon. She's passed out from drinking too much egg nog.

 :sniff: : Well, she always had a weakness for egg nog.

Suddenly, a car stops by the sidewalk. The door opens, and an obese female figure comes out. The figure turns out to be none other than...

 :sniff: : OH MY GOSH, MARY JANE!!! YOU'RE FAT!!!!  :o

Mary Jane: Yep! That's what happens around the holidays. You gain weight like there's no tomorrow!

Ness: We need to get you on the scales!

Catfish (pops from a newby sewer lid): Did somebody say scales?

Ness: Beat it!

Catfish goes back in the sewers.

Ness: So just hop on the conveniently located coin-operated scale and it will guess your weight.

Mary Jane hops on the scales. She ends up weighing...

Mary Jane: 450 POUNDS!!!!

 :sniff: : It's okay! Just try not to gain any more of those holiday pounds.

: Greetings, everyone. and I have arrived to wish you some holiday greetings. (to Mary Jane) My, you're a lovely miss. Here, have 450 pounds!

 :sniff: : OH NO!!! SHE DOUBLED HER WEIGHT!!

Mary Jane: Honestly, what am I going to do with so much British money?

rolls his eyes. Him and his master exit.

Ness: Come on,  :sniff: and Mary Jane, let's go inside  :bugs2: 's mansion for a nice cup of cocoa over an open fireplace. I can keep it going with my PK thunder.

General Discussion / Re: '90s / 2000s Nicktoons on Hulu Plus
« on: December 24, 2014, 07:03:48 pm »
I'm surprised they left the shot of the Twin Towers getting blown up intact on "Powdered Toast Man vs. Waffle Woman." I know they could get away with that in 1994, but today's censor monkeys are strict about content like that (like the "Action League Now" segment "Caged Thunder" that was pulled due to its' terrorism theme.)

Maybe Hulu just accepted what Nickelodeon gave them, and Nick did not give Hulu the censored version of the episode. Could that be it?

By the way, they added The Wild Thornberries and the Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius. I wonder if they'll add more of their older Nicktoons.

Nice post, Toadette. The screenshots show how perspective is used with both the backgrounds and characters even if viewed from differing angles. This aspect helps the overall image look visually appealing.

General Discussion / '90s / 2000s Nicktoons on Hulu Plus

I've recently revived my Hulu Plus subscription and found out that Nickelodeon has added several of their older Nicktoons to the service. Shows include Ren & Stimpy, Hey Arnold!, Invader Zim, My Life as a Teenage Robot, and Danny Phantom. (If I'm missing anything, please respond.)

All I can say is that this will definitely be a fun, nostalgic trip for me. I hope Hulu adds more of the classic Nicktoons. (I'm hoping they'll release Doug. I haven't seen that in a while.)

Norman Bridwell wrote and illustrated the Clifford the Big Red Dog children's book series for Scholastic. He passed away several days ago. You can read more about the event here: http://shelf-life.ew.com/2014/12/16/clifford-the-big-red-dog-creator-norman-bridwell-dies-at-86/

I remember enjoying the Clifford books back in elementary school. I'm glad the series is still going strong, and I hope children continue to enjoy the stories.

"Clogged" is now on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YFCluYEf7oI

The short is entertaining, and it doesn't have a lot of gross or violent humor.

I'm glad another once lost Oswald short was found and was later archived in a digital format. I really hope Disney will release this along with Hungry Hobos to the public.  :ozzie:
