Unique ways in which to hide an elephant through the sneaky eye of Photoshop.Unique ways in which to hide an elephant through the sneaky eye of Photoshop.

Remember that Loony Tunes episode where everyone sees a pink elephant walking around in some form or another? This is kind of like that - well, except the elephant isn't pink.

Weird Al to direct his first feature film for Cartoon Network.Weird Al to direct his first feature film for Cartoon Network.

Not many details yet but congrats to Al on this new gig. Fun fact: two members of my immediate family can still recite the lyrics from 'Dare to be Stupid' from memory. Bonus fact: we are both over the age of thirty.

The actual faces behind some of your favorite cartoon character voices.The actual faces behind some of your favorite cartoon character voices.

A fun post with some interesting reveals that you may not have known about before (for instance, the voice of Shredder in the TMNT series). For those interested in my thumbnail choice, there is a slew of Dr. Katz videos up on YouTube.

Cartoons reimagined in the real world through the realistic eye of Photoshop.Cartoons reimagined in the real world through the realistic eye of Photoshop.

Because life is in fact like a hurricane in Duckburg, with race cars, lasers, aeroplanes - it's a duck blur. You might solve a mystery or even rewrite history. Duck Tales, oo-oo Tales of derring-do (derring?), bad and good luck tales.

Eleven mediocre television shows with awesome theme songs.Eleven mediocre television shows with awesome theme songs.

Take a trip down memory lane and reminisce about the television shows you may have used to watch. The combination of DuckTales and Rescue Rangers still holds a special place in my heart (although not mentioned on said list). Hey, remember The Jets?

Nickelodeon is now the proud owner of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise.Nickelodeon is now the proud owner of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise.

The acquisition could be a huge coup for the iconic network, who during the 90's, peaked with franchises like The Ren & Stimpy Show, Rugrats, All That, Doug, among a plethora of others that defined the childhoods of 'mid-to-late 80's babies.'

Ten of the most underrated cartoons of all time.Ten of the most underrated cartoons of all time.

Ah, the days of Danger Mouse. Batman Beyond (also on the list) was a pretty awesome (and suprisingly bad-ass) series as well. Those looking for a nostalgic dose of it should check out the movie, Return of the Joker.

Through a combination of terrible aim, superhuman jumping ability, and impossibly reliable parachutes, every combatant escaped even the most dire of situations without so much as the angle of his beret askew.
