THE BEST Cartoons

Shank

Shank

This side-scrolling beat-em-up finally hit XBLA and PSN, and it’s well worth the wait. Tons of weapons, local co-op mode, great looks and a story from the writer of God of War add up to a great game.

Where Wookiees Come From

Where Wookiees Come From

What with all that body hair, we always wondered if Wookiees and Ewoks were somehow related. Now we know the real truth. Be sure to click through the whole gallery for the punch line.

Call of Cthulhu Explained

Call of Cthulhu Explained

The Brothers Grim and Grimy explain the dark world of H.P. Lovecraft in under 2 minutes, with cartoony animations and an inappropriate narrator. At least we now know how to pronounce Cthulhu.

Trailer: Venture Bros Season 4.5

Trailer: Venture Bros Season 4.5

Prepare for more super-powered comedy in the new season, filled with mind-blowing treats like Sgt. Hatred’s songs, the real Spider-Man and the world premiere of formal underwear.

Cartoon Perspective Sculptures

Cartoon Perspective Sculptures

These unassuming sculptures of popular cartoon characters were made by artist John Hopkins. They’re actually made of several disproportionate parts. See more of Hopkins’ work here.

Chewbacca Had A Speaking Part

Chewbacca Had A Speaking Part

You may or may not know this, but the big, furry Wookiee actually had lines. Thankfully, illustrator Doug Savage has taken it upon himself to document all of his dialog from the original Star Wars for us.

The Voices Of The Simpsons

The Voices Of The Simpsons

…also known as Hank Azaria and The Others. Though, if we go by character, we’d have to say the most important actor is Dan “Homer” Castellaneta. Any idea why 3 people play Itchy?

The Hipsters Of The Universe

The Hipsters Of The Universe

Adrian Riemann gave He-Man and his friends and enemies a 21st century look using clothes that actually exist. Blasphemy? Maybe, but it’s just so well-done it’s hard to look away.

The John K. School of Animation

The John K. School of Animation

John Kricfalusi, the warped mind behind shows like Ren & Stimpy and the 1990’s Mighty Mouse is offering lessons to new cartoonists. It’s a unique an opportunity to learn from one of the greats.

The TMNT Use Their Weapons

The TMNT Use Their Weapons

Very NSFW: after running out of puns and pizzas, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles finally use their weapons; too bad there’ll be shell to pay from the legal system and network censors.

It’s A Hard Life T-shirt

It’s A Hard Life T-shirt

While it’s been a hard life for some smurfs, Gargamel’s just a minor neighborhood bully for Papa Smurf; he’s endured invasions, sea monsters, and years as a blue bruiser.

Michelangelo Comiquette

Michelangelo Comiquette

Michelangelo goes cowabunga-kick-ass with this fantastic 12″ polystone comiquette; he’s based on the comics (hence the red bandana), but you can get the orange variant here.

Semi-Realistic Family Guy

Semi-Realistic Family Guy

Kristy Anne Ligones’ semi-realistic portraits of Family Guy actually paint fairly normal versions of Peter, Lois, Chris, and Brian; that said, Stewie and Meg are as creepy as ever.

TMNT Shredder Hoodie

TMNT Shredder Hoodie

The Foot Clan leader is apparently a fashion trendsetter, too: this TMNT Shredder Hoodie features arm and shoulder spikes and a zip-up half mask to scare your half-shell enemies.

Art: Simpsons 20th Season

Art: Simpsons 20th Season

Celebrating the upcoming Simpsons: The Complete Twentieth Season DVD set, this epic Simpsons poster is a who’s who of Springfield; check out the scrollable version here.

Springfield Still Life Tee

Springfield Still Life Tee

Don’t have a cow, man, the Simpsons are still around–albeit with an artistic makeover; this Springfield Still Life t-shirt turns our favorite animated family into inanimate objects.

He-Man: The Complete Series

He-Man: The Complete Series

It’s not the original Filmation version, but 2002’s He-Man won a Daytime Emmy during its 39 episode run; The Complete Series is a 4-disc set that includes a PDF version of episode 40.

George and AJ (Short Film)

George and AJ (Short Film)

If you ever wondered what happened post-Carl in Up, Pixar explains all; the short film George and AJ shows things going downhill, underground, and interplanetary. Thanks, Thorir!

Zombie Scooby-Doo Tee

Zombie Scooby-Doo Tee

Shaggy, Daphne, and Freddie are absent in this Zombie Scooby-Doo t-shirt, but it’s a no-brainer why: Velma shows smarts (with shotguns, stakes, and Scooby snacks) = survival.

Seth MacFarlane’s Secret

Seth MacFarlane’s Secret

So much for hush-hush, as Seth MacFarlane’s Secret is out: Family Guy, American Dad, and The Cleveland Show are less about equal rights and more about equal nights (on Fox).

Vitruvian Voltron T-shirt

Vitruvian Voltron T-shirt

This Vitruvian Voltron tee may seem anachronistic, but we are talking Da Vinci here: we think a flying fortress made out of robotic lions would be right up the renaissance man’s alley.

Trailer: Train Your Dragon

Trailer: Train Your Dragon

In theaters 3/26/10, Dreamworks’ How to Train Your Dragon is every child (and child at heart’s) dream come true: it features Vikings, misunderstood lizards, and all-you-can-eat sheep.

Dethklok x Brutal Legend

Dethklok x Brutal Legend

Best product tie-in ever: Eddie Riggs makes a cameo on Adult Swim’s Metalocalypse, moonlighting (of course) as a totally metal roadie for Dethklok — well, everyone but Murderface.

Video: Klingon Propaganda

Video: Klingon Propaganda

You’d have to be a targ to not love this Klingon Propaganda video, secretly released (aka viral) to recruit new sons of Kahless; the uniforms and D7 cruisers have a distinct ToS flavor.

Family Guy: SSSDS

Family Guy: SSSDS

Available 12/22/09, Family Guy: Something, Something, Something, Darkside is Seth MacFarlane’s latest faithful Star Wars retelling, this time parodying The Empire Strikes Back.
