The Animated History Of The Nintendo Game Boy

Nintendo’s handheld video game consoles didn’t start off being called Game Boy and the ones you can buy now aren’t even called Game Boy anymore. But a Nintendo handheld video game console will always be a Game Boy to my brain and to many other well-adjusted humans who are just pretending to be adults right now.

What Happened To Your Favourite Cartoon Characters After They Became Famous

Video: Like most people who got too famous too fast or too rich too young, it’s no surprise that our favourite cartoon characters would burn out and get fat, drunk and be out of work too.

A Scientifically Accurate Chip 'N' Dale Rescue Rangers Is Quite Nasty

Video: Back again to ruin all of your childhood’s favourite cartoons, here’s ADHD hilariously explaining how disgusting chipmunks are.

Monsters, Inc. As A Horror Movie Is Pretty Intense

Monsters, Inc., one of my favourite Pixar movies, used the idea of monsters and scares and creepy creatures for laughs and a heartwarming story. This re-cut movie trailer by Ross Thompson paints the picture differently and re-cuts the scenes in the style of the Prometheus movie trailer. This is Monsters, Inc. the horror movie.


Video Ruins Your Childhood By Listing Everything Wrong With Toy Story

It’s a cruel job being destroyer of childhoods but CinemaSins loves to ham it up when they poke fun at universally loved movies from our past. This time, their target is Toy Story, a movie that’s not just awesome but also responsible for so much more awesome in the Pixar movies that followed it.*
