I just finished re-reading my friend Rob's book "Hey Kids, Comics!!" (the book was named after a website of his)! The book is filled with essays by various comic book pros and fans alike. And a common theme in these essays, is that of how much of a struggle it could be to hunt down your favorite comics (back in the day, you had to cover some ground in order to get to ALL of your favorites). And , those essays served to remind me of how lucky I was as a kid growing up in the 1970's. Read more...

For many years, the theme of the crossover between characters of separate fiction series has been witnessed by audiences in a number of entertainment mediums: comic books, video games, film, television, etc. Sometimes, the crossover is the subject of a specific television series episode (like say the Simpsons/Family Guy crossover episode of Family Guy for example) or even a specific issue of a comic book series. Additionally, history has witnessed the existence of kind of comic book series where each issue of such finds the series' protagonist interacting with guest characters of another fiction series. Think back to comic book series like DC Comics' The Brave and the Bold (particulary the first series volume after issue 50) and Marvel Comics' Spider-Man Team-Up as well as IDW Publishing's Powerpuff Girls Super Smash-Up (where Powerpuff Girls encounter protagonists of a number of other Cartoon Network original series). And if you are a fan old-school Scooby-Doo, you probably are familiar with The New Scooby-Doo Movies, which features Scooby and the Mystery Machine gang interacting with guest characters each episode.

In 1972 the Brady Kids made another kind of history. The bell bottomed family of America hosted a primetime special on Friday night advertising the Saturday morning cartoon lineup on ABC and started an annual tradition. While this had been done in 1968 and 69, by NBC and CBS, and hosted by Family Affair and The Banana Splitz it was the Brady numbers that cemented a tradition which spread to every network annually.

What do you get when you combine the biggest stars of the 70’s and mix them with a Great Dane? No, not a genetic monster that eats award shows. No, not a dog that beats up paparazzi. You get The New Scooby-Doo Movies from 1972-74 and one of the most memorable cartoons of the last 50 years. The concept was simple – have the mystery revolve around a celebrity and have the celebrity do the voice over. But in its simplicity a marvelous thing happened, the staying power of Scooby – Doo was etched in stone and the audience for Scooby-Doo grew past a child audience. This is your enr time machine captain, The BurnChimp and we are ready to depart for the Hanna-Barbera Golden Age. So buckle up and let your memories flow as we look at the top 3 episodes ranked by me. Read more...

One of the things that has always made wrestling events (including of course the televised kind) fun is that there are no rules on how fighters are to fight, and the same can be said about video games where players play fictional characters battling it out with each other. And, do you remember the clay animation sitcom Celebrity Deathmatch, where fictional versions of real-world celebrities take part in deadly wrestling matches in a battle arena? I am sure some of you do remember watching it on MTV2, and I know I saw some episodes. Read more...

I don't know how many of you saw the television special The Comedy Central of Justin Bieber on March 30, but for those of you who did, I am sure you have some good laughs from the comedic comments the guests were making about the famous Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber, and I know I laughed. For those of you who never saw or heard of a roast, it usually goes like this: people celebrate the life of a celebrity by poking fun at certain aspects of the celeb himself or herself in a way that refers the audience to what is true about that celeb.  You know, satire. Anyway, after watching the Bieber roast, I have been thinking about what fictional characters in comic books and cartoons I would like to see get roasted and the kinds of funny comments I would want to make if I was meet face to face with them.  Now, before I reveal the characters I would want to roast and what roast comments I would say to each, be warned that this feature at ENR may contain content some readers may find offensive, so READER DISCRETION IS STRONGLY ADVISED.
