A beautiful woman stands up, mystical lights have caught her attention. She follows them up a flight of stairs and embraces their allure. A perfume-style bottle appears and the woman is delighted ... until she sees the text on the bottle: cervical cancer.

This commercial caught our attention -- and that of the millions of Academy Awards viewers -- and is one of the most shocking public service announcements we've seen in a while.

Marge Simpson in PlayboyMarge Simpson's spread in Playboy was a groundbreaking moment for cartoon women everywhere. Her sensual skin pics paved new ground for the "feminine-animated."

TransformersSciFiWire has a list of 10 Saturday morning TV series that inspired movies and the list seems to be, to say the least, a bit skewed. To begin, the title is misleading. Most of the examples they use rose to fame as something else before they were even shown on television. And once shown, they weren't necessarily on Saturday mornings.
