What we’re Enjoying

Jay popped on a little Hulu and checked out the latest Mel Brooks property, which is a sequel to one of his classic movies; History of the World part II. A series that takes the idea of the historical sketch comedy and keeps the idea going for the next generation. Shua and his wife took the plunge and sniffed out Cocaine Bear. This crazy, over-the-top interpretation of a true story with gore, action, and dark humor entertained them and made them laugh. If you dig that combination, check it out. 


Enjoy Cartoons!   

William Hanna and Joseph Barbera were animators for MGM, but in 1957 they founded their own animation studio and proceeded to change the industry with their dedication and innovation. They received 7 Academy Awards, 8 Emmys, and tons of other accolades. They produced 1,246 hours of animation on television for more than 60 years. This week we look back on their animation origins and how they made such a difference.
