    Damn, Predator! This is an old orthodontics timelapse of an 11-year old with a serious case of the snaggletooth getting her teeth straightened with braces over an 18-month period. I had braces when I was a kid. Plus headgear. I had an underbite so bad I couldn't pull my top... / Continue →

    This is the mech warrior playhouse built by Alabama dad and NASA scientist Jim Martin for his children. The playhouse is based off the Mad Cat, a mech from the analog (read: paper-and-pencil based) role-playing game MechWarrior. Could you imagine growing up with a mech warrio... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Carnegie Hall Ensemble Orchestra performing 43 separate cartoon theme songs in five minutes. Just a bit of each song though, not the whole thing. That would have taken way longer. Like me getting dressed this morning. "You still only have one pant leg... / Continue →

    This is the $75 Fisher-Price Ipad Apptivity Seat (already in existence: an iPad potty chair). It's a baby chair with an iPad dock that dangles over your little bundle of bad vision. Will it help your child grow up to be a technology professional? No. Will it give them somet... / Continue →

    Forts, not farts. Squishy farts are totally different and, at least in my experience, often result in running to the bathroom to check your underwear. These (the blue pieces) are Squishy Forts, modular pillow fort construction kits designed by Ross Currie (and not Marie Curie... / Continue →

    Four years after his much plumper brother Mario (Lou Albano) took the warp pipe, Luigi (Danny Wells) from the late 80's/early 90's Super Mario Bros Super Show has passed away. He was 72. He is survived by the lovechild he and Princess Peach had that Mario thought was his. Re... / Continue →

    This is a giant series of He-Man Masters of the Universe LEGO sets and minifigs made by LEGO pro Orion Pax (of LEGO Ghostbusters headquarters and Back to the Future Hill Valley fame). I would play with those for hours and if any kids asked to join I would let them, but they'd ... / Continue →

    This is a small gallery of drawings by Celeste Doodles (me too -- I doodle!) imagining what some classic 90's cartoon characters look like as hipstery twenty-somethings, including some Rugrats, Hey Arnold!, Pepper Ann and Magic Schoolbus action. This Chuckie one from Rugrats t... / Continue →

    Remember Little Golden Books? Those things were awesome and the perfect length for an afternoon potty sesh. Now? Now I sit there in pain for like an hour asking myself why the hell I eat the things I do. Animator Joebot has created a small series of video games (Bioshock, ... / Continue →

    Remember the first "Mr. Wizard's a dick" supercut? WELL HERE'S ANOTHER ONE. This one features what is arguably the the best Mr. Wizard line of all time though: "You know you can do this at home yourself -- you don't need to come over to my house to do it." I tell my friends... / Continue →

    This is a shot of two dudes spotted cosplaying as Bert and Ernie at Dracon*Con by Redditor ProbableCause. They're f***ing terrifying. Like, definitely not the type of guys you'd feel comfortable watching take a bubble-bath together. Chris Hemsworth and Ryan Gosling? Those t... / Continue →

    This is a three-minute supercut of my childhood idol Mr. Wizard being rude to children. Except not really, they're just all out of context. Say you walked into the middle of a conversation and all you heard was "the second biggest penis I've ever seen." Like, you don't know ... / Continue →

    This is a conceptual Danger Mouse movie poster created by Geekologie Reader and DeviantARTist Daz Tibbles (NOT Tigo Bitties). Danger Mouse will always hold a special place in my coal-black, crusty-ass heart because my brother and I used to watch the shit out of it growing up. ... / Continue →

    Bert, one-half of everyone's favorite homosexual Muppet couple (sorry, crotchety old bickering guys!) is seen here in a little too life-like silicon sculpture by artist and Effects Studio member Nacho (you're useless without cheese!). As you can see, he has a face that would s... / Continue →

    Hey you -- girl on the right. Less rainbow scarf, more lightsaber. Because there's nothing a little Force can't teach, a school is opening in Chile to learn children the way of the Jedi, alongside some Taekwondo and yoga for good measure. *searching for online enrollment* D... / Continue →

    Bootyful, get it?! Me neither, my dogs told me to type it or they'd pee on my favorite rug AND THEN THE WHOLE ROOM WOULD COME UNRAVELED. Lebowski reference -- count it. This is a pirate-themed bedroom designed for a six-year old who may or may yes be spoiled rotten. It can ... / Continue →

    Note: Full-size shot HERE in case you're looking for a new wallpaper. So apparently a revamped Thundercats is coming back to television, and let me tell you: Lion-O looks like some sort of confused emo-anime caricature of his former self. Battle Cat will never let you ride hi... / Continue →
