They said he'd never be able to bring monster flavor back to the big screen, claimed nobody would ever find him delicious, but Choculatu proved them all wrong. He had the chocolatey flavor kids craved, and enough vampy fashion sense to drive the older kids wild with his freaky style. People were hesitant to buy his breakfast nuggets at first, but when he was joined by his good friends Boo Radley the blueberry ghost and The FrankenCherry Creature they were poised to become the most famous breakfast monsters who ever lived!

When you hear the superheroic name Rainbow Man how do you expect him to act? Flamboyant, or crazy cheerleader level cheerful would have been my guess, but then I watched the trailer for this (probably not) upcoming movie Rainbow Man film and found out I had it all wrong.
Rainbow Man’s wardrobe is already colorful enough, he doesn’t need to act in a colorful manner because he’s wearing all the colors of the rainbow, plus he shoots rainbows out of his hands.
One man, twenty seven kinds of leprechaun, one of which bit the one man one fateful day and gave him the power of rainbow- Bad Weather Films presents: Rainbow Man. (probably not) Coming soon to a theater near you.
Looks like a box office bonanza in the making to me!
Nowadays people feel more free to try out their own variations on the traditional pot luck fare at gatherings, and yet with all the new and cutting edge food creations it doesn’t appear anybody is in a hurry to explore the dishes some of our ancestors used to eat at these same functions.
Some of the victims participants came pretty close to creating a drawing of what could be mistaken for a turkey across a crowded bar, after you’ve had a few drinks of course.
And then there’s this guy, who didn’t even come close!
His crappy artwork proves that his meaty brain has begun to turn into a mélange of freshly picked greens, mandarin oranges and candied almonds tossed in a light white peach vinaigrette, in other words disgusting.
Do yourself a favor and keep your brain meaty by eating lots of turkey this Thanksgiving, or else keep a photo of a turkey with you at all times to remind your leafy brain what meat looks like!
When Zoidberg told the rest of the group there would be visitors arriving from a strange alternate dimension everyone assumed he'd eaten a bad dumpster sandwich, but when the Doctor and some chick with one eye named Pond showed up on their doorstep everyone let out a collective gasp. The Doctor looked like he could have been one of Fry's relatives, only with a way better fashion sense, and when they found he spoke their language they all let out a collective sigh of relief. But then the Doctor started blathering about some insane space grandpa, rolling trashcans with plunger arms and laser eyes, and men made out of cyber the group couldn't help but let out a collective gasp...of fear!

John had always felt like Garfield was a very special cat, but he had no idea about that fat cat's royal heritage until a letter arrived from Africa addressed to His Royal Highness Prince Garfield of Mumbutu. The letter was an invitation to a coronation ceremony where Garfield would be pronouced Lasagna King, lasagna being the most prized food product in Mumbutu. John was happy to escort the royal furball to Africa, and Garfield was happy to eat every bit of lasagna in the kingdom!
Bring a touch of animated adventure to your geeky wardrobe with this Lasagna King t-shirt by Legendary Phoenix, it's way better than Mondays and sure to earn you lots of free lasagna dinners!
The food monsters next door celebrate Thanksgiving a week later than everyone else, when suddenly a robotic turkey called Turkitron shows up and spins a yarn about traveling back in time to save the great, great grandfather of Goblox, the leader of the turkey rebellion.
The Smiths aren't your typical American family, but that doesn't mean they don't deal with the usual problems.
Take Stan's half-brother Rusty for instance- he's more American than Stan because he's Native American, and he's got more money than Stan and his family will ever make in their lives. So how does Stan deal with a family problem like Rusty? With a little lifestyle switcheroo, of course!
4. Bob's Burgers- An Indecent Thanksgiving Proposal-
Bob puts down the spatula and picks up a baster in this Thanksgiving themed episode full of deception, dirty little secrets and dinner theater.
Bob is hired by his landlord to cook a Thanksgiving meal, but this catering job comes with a price- Bob must let Linda and the kids pretend to be Mr. Fischoeder's family. Can Bob keep it together long enough to pull off this turkey day trick, or will he crack up before dinner is served?
Doc and Marty came across an old, and seemingly abandoned, police box behind the movie theater, and they liked the look of it so much they decided it would make the perfect replacement for that rusty old DeLorean. They towed the box to Doc's warehouse and drew up plans for a time machine 2.0, complete with flashing lights on top and whirring sound effect. The only problem with the scenario was that they couldn't open the door of the box, but then they discovered a strange handheld sonic device that resembled a screwdriver...
Share the sci-fi crossover sequel that will never be with this DeLorean 2.0 t-shirt by Donnie, and ask yourself- who is the coolest time traveler ever?
Getting hit by a car hurts- a lot. I was lucky enough to have been struck by cars that were only going about 15-25 miles an hour, but the Chinese man seen in this shocking footage takes lucky to a whole new level.
The man, identified only as Li, looks like a deer in the headlights as he stands in the middle of a busy road in Kunshan City, and then he's struck by not one but two motorists who clearly haven't found a use for their brake pedal.
Sitcoms love to make us feel like part of the family by sharing their holiday traditions with us. They get all dressed up for Halloween, have family and friends over for Christmas and get ta gobblin’ up a delicious dinner on Thanksgiving day, just like real people!
Let’s take a fun trip down Thanksgiving memory lane with ten hand plucked sitcom episodes sure to make you thankful for finely crafted television shows:
1. Friends- The One With All The Thanksgivings-
Friends went all out for a Thanksgiving of remembrance during episode 8 of season 5, from all the way back in 1998. Through flashback sequences we get to see Monica before she lost all the weight, Chandler sporting a totally radical Flock of Seagulls haircut, and this unforgettable Monica turkey moment:
Choosing an anti-nuke protest over a Thanksgiving feast seems like a fine message, but the true spirit of togetherness comes when Alex P., Mallory and Jennifer show they love and support their parents no matter how kooky their cause.
Modern Family put a totally progressive spin on the classic Thanksgiving episode by bringing the family together around some good ol' fashioned punkin chunkin, because nothing squashes family beef like launching orange squash through the air! Doesn't that look like a fun new take on Thanksgiving tradition?
4. Seinfeld - Mom & Pop Store-
Leave it up to the show about nothing to disguise their Thanksgiving episode under layers of stuffing. George buys John Voight's car, an Empire State Building statue pops Mr. Pitt's dream of holding a balloon in the Macy's parade, and a mom and pop store makes off with all of Jerry's sneakers.
Horror movies are rarely set in Los Angeles, preferring to use fake city names like Springwood and Cuesta Verde, and yet the vast majority of them are filmed within a hundred miles of Hollywood.
Making viewers believe that they’re seeing a location from Anywhere, U.S.A. is all part of movie magic, but when you discover the real life locations scattered around the City of Angels Google maps replaces magic.
With a little storytelling, and an audience's willingness to believe, these everyday locales across Los Angeles transport the viewers to another place and time, but isn't it surprising how mundane most of these locations are in real life?!
Video game developers typically have some sort of time period in mind when they’re creating the look and feel of their world, a historical reference point which is easy to spot in the fantasy genre.
Fantasy is all about swords and sorcery, castles and dungeons, and kingdoms at war, so there has to be some historical truths behind our favorite fantasy games, right?
Destructoid community member and History Teacher RedHeadPeak asked himself this question with regards to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and decided to explore the reality behind in-game elements such as wolves, weapons and armor, and the abundance of books you see everywhere.
There were all sorts of fun games going on when Ash and his friends showed up at the Poke Master Mega Block Party, like pin the tail on the snorlax and bobbing for Poke balls, but Ash knew Pika would only want to do one thing- take a dip in the pool! Ash uttered the phrase "I choose you!" and tossed Pika and the Poke ball right into the deep end, and when Pika emerged underwater it felt like nirvana. However, the rest of the pocket monsters and trainers who were swimming in the pool didn't appreciate Pika's electric feel...
When your friends say "here we are, now entertain us" you can show them this clever Neverball t-shirt by Wirdou and watch them roar with laughter!
It’s only natural to see optical illusions in the world around us, and nature likes to unintentionally serve up some real mind-benders that force you to take a second look in order to wrap your mind around what your eyes are seeing.
Some animals incorporate optical illusions into their body markings on purpose, but most animal based optical illusions are simply a matter of seeing things from the right angle at exactly the right moment.
Benjamin Franklin has gone from sainted Founding Father to controversial figure, ladies man and America's original superstar thanks in part to the Isaacson biography Benjamin Franklin: An American Life, but how much of this information is overblown?
Ben was a thinker, a drinker and a real stinker if you got on his bad side, but there’s no denying that he is one of America’s most fascinating historical figures, someone who really knew how to live life to the fullest.
The internet is full of cute cat pics, hilarious memes, and hate. How can these seemingly incongruous elements exist in one place? With a little help from trending, post sharing and social media-izing.
In 2004 lucky old Grandpa Joe, who got to visit Wonka’s chocolate factory and discovered candy can cure crippling afflictions, became the target of internetter rage when his villainous nature was exposed.
The blog Say No To Grandpa Joe started it all, created "To reveal once and for all the truth about the only real villain in the movie"- Grandpa Joe.
They cite his attitude towards women, his tobacco money stash and the fact that he stayed in bed and let someone else do all the work, until the chance to have fun arrived, as reasons to hate old man Joe.
Kids will be kids, even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse, so when kids started looking for fun stuff to collect local living artists were happy to comply. They started drawing up trading cards featuring illustrations of what the survivors would look like as the walking dead, and although these gross cards turned the adults stomachs the kids just couldn't get enough of seeing how they'd look as a rotten walker!
Trading cards aren't just for the garbage pail any more, check out this Walker Grimes t-shirt by StationJack and see the ultimate fate awaiting the trading card industry after the zombie apocalypse...
It's easy to get a bit discombobulated when you arrive in Transylvania, but don't lose your young head! Listen to old pop eyed Igor and keep track of what's important- there wolf, there castle. Wolves don't like to hang around in castles, and castles try to steer clear of those stinkin' wolves, but where can Frankenstein's creature be found? He's usually hanging around town enjoying a tea party and some polite conversation, that is until the pitchforks and torches come out...
Share your love of classic horror comedies with this There, wolf. There, castle t-shirt by Benares, it's a real humdinger!
If we could actually capture the appearance of a spirit on film, like those ghost show guys claim to be able to do, we might end up with a result that resembles the hauntingly beautiful paintings of Henrik Aarrestad Uldalen.
Henrik’s subjects look like they're materializing out of wisps of smoke, or breaking down into an incorporeal and foggy form, the beauty of soft human contours emerging from the insubstantial.
His paintings are meditative, deconstructive and strikingly humanistic, sparking conversations about the fleeting nature of human life and the way elements converge to create the human form. -Via Beautiful/Decay
Animation fans often wonder what their favorite non-human cartoon characters would look like as humans, and artists who grew up loving cartoons can't help but give the transformation a try, just to see what happens.
People present them in all kinds of styles, from realistic human to totally toonified, and yet I don’t think I’ve ever seen a collection as large, or diverse, as this list of 25 Non-Human Cartoon Characters As Humans, presented by the staff at Dorkly.
You get to see classic toons like Bugs Bunny, new school toons like Mordecai and Rigby from Regular Show, and this extremely strange envisioning of a handsome human Squidward. Okay, maybe we should leave these toons alone after all!
Have you ever wondered where those Black Metal bands got their signature spikes and face paint style?
KISS seems like an obvious source, or King Diamond or more recently Marilyn Manson, but according to this video footage from 1977 they should all thank Richard Pryor for teaching them how to be truly hardcore.
Pryor’s short lived NBC series The Richard Pryor Show featured a sketch where Pryor plays the lead singer of a band called Black Death, who puts on a wicked metal show that really knocks the audience dead!
Was Richard Pryor able to see the state of metal over twenty years later like some sort of precognitive musical genius? Nah, he probably just thought theatrical metal bands like KISS were super silly and bound to get even sillier, and boy was he was right! -Via Dangerous Minds
Behold the almighty tater tot- the best tasting food product shaped like a tiny barrel.
Whether they’re fried, baked or microwaved they always end up tasting like hot potato goodness, and the fact that they’re easy to pop in your mouth by the handful makes them a big hit with the snack packs.
Nowadays people are going all fancy feast with their tater tots, piling cheese and other delicious stuff on top to make totchos supreme, or laying them on top of a casserole to add the perfect amount of tot-ness to an already delicious dish.
They weren't trained to be warriors, marauders, soldiers or raiders- they were born, bred and built up to be taunters. They shook their stuff in general directions like nobody else could, and when they pull out the big guns and accuse you of having a hamster for a mother their taunt topples even the mighties kings from their silly thrones! They may not be the winning team, but they sure do know how to cause a mental injury with some rough wordplay.

Scooby and the gang really shouldn't have been hanging around with that guy Hannibal, but he promised to help them solve the case of the haunted sanitarium and seemed like a nice guy. Once the case had been solved, and Agent Starling was uncovered as the Masked Headshrinker, the mystery gang was invited back to Hannibal's house for a gourmet meal he'd prepared. Scooby had become worried about his little buddy Scrappy, but the rest of the gang were too busy listening to Will's stories about actual monsters to notice the little guy was gone. They sat down to eat, excited for a home cooked meal, but when Hannibal came walking out of the kitchen with the meal he'd prepared the group discovered what had become of poor little Scrappy...

The kittehs were looking to put the band back together, but they needed a style makeover because folk was out and metal was in. They decided to go with a classic face painting motif to give them the purrfect amount of fright, and kitty friendly instruments to keep Purr playing their pawsitively awesome brand of rock and roll all night. They landed a gig in Rock City's seediest underground club The Tomcat and proceeded to blow the audience's mind with their fantastically furry-ous basslines, mewsically melodious choruses and derp inducing drumming. Purr was off to a good start, that is until the Starchild and Catman came looking for them after the gig...

While it hasn’t made quite as big a splash as Guardians of the Galaxy at the box office, Big Hero 6 has been a big hit with audiences since its release, garnering the franchise a new batch of fans who might not have ever read the original Marvel comic.
With characters who go from being small time nerds to big heroes, characters who are each totally amazing in their own way, it's no wonder artists and crafters immediately went out and made their own Big Hero 6 themed stuff after watching this amazing animated feature!
