Five of the Creepiest Real Life Versions of Famous Cartoons

by Danny Gallagher, posted Apr 15th 2010 6:03PM
The real life Mr. GarrisonIn TV, there are two distinct worlds: our world and the cartoon world. So far, we've gotten along pretty well because, for the most part, cartoons have kept their animated butts in their world.

We don't allow it to happen very often because when cartoons try to invade the real world on those rare occasions, the transference is nightmarish. Their distorted animated features and expressions can make 'Eraserhead' look like an Olson Twins movie.

Here are five of the creepiest looking and sounding real life cartoon crossovers that will have you bleaching your brain with the magic of Clorox 2.

So Apple announced the iPad today. No surprise, especially since Mad TV announced it a few years ago. (Might be slightly NSFW.)

Mad TV might not end after all

by Bob Sassone, posted May 7th 2009 7:05PM
Mad TVWe've heard that Mad TV will be leaving the FOX schedule in a couple of weeks, canceled after 14 years on the network (Talk Show with Spike Feresten has also been axed). Now it looks like the people at the late night comedy show have no intention of hanging things up.

Producer David Salzman is looking for another network to pick up the show. He says that this finale coming up is the "FOX finale," but he's talking to other networks about doing another season of the show (at least).

So, what network would be a good place for Mad TV to continue? I think there are three or four networks that come immediately to mind (no, I don't see it on Lifetime or WE). After the jump, let us know what channel would be a good fit for this show.

Finally, Mad TV is getting the boot

by Brad Trechak, posted Nov 12th 2008 8:38PM
Mad TVAfter 14 years on the air, Fox has finally decided to pull the plug on Mad TV. I can't say I was an overwhelming fan but I did watch one or two of their early shows and got a chuckle out of it. The sudden revitalization of SNL's popularity was probably the final nail in that coffin (thank you, Tina Fey).

Let me eulogize for a moment. Others have tried to take on the Saturday Night Live juggernaut through the years and failed much more quickly. This show lasted 14 years against it. Pretty impressive, if you ask me. It also helped launch the careers of several comedians/actors, including Alex Borstein, Orlando Jones and Artie Lange.

While I don't think Mad TV was the worst show on television, it wasn't the best either. It amazes me that this show lasted 14 years on Fox while Firefly was canceled before the first season finished broadcasting.
