TV Squad Ten: Cartoon women who should have Playboy centerfolds

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."

She told the world that the women of animation aren't just vehicles for humor or straight characters to set up punchlines for the males on the paper. She helped us realize they have thoughts, feelings, emotions and yes, even urges that make them unique, infinitely interesting and utterly fascinating. They are, as Dr. Frasier Crane so eloquently put it, "like a fine wine: always intoxicated, ever surprising and only getting better with age."

And so, for the cause of gender equality and female empowerment, here are the ten cartoon chicks who should pose naked because it would be righteously awesome.

Where did Smurfs come from? - VIDEO

Papa SmurfEver wonder where The Smurfs came from? Was Papa Smurf the progenitor of all smurfness? Would Smurfette forever be the only the female sent by Gargamel to cause jealousy and unrest in the otherwise male community?

I certainly have. I love those little forest imps (only three apples tall) and their awesome smurfin' singing. I can hear it now. LA LA La la la laaa... And now you probably will have it in your head for the rest of the day. Sorry about that.

If you want to learn more about The Smurfs, check out the video after the jump. It explains how Peyo, the Belgian cartoonist, discovered the word that made him a legend and other smurfin' good facts.

Smurfs movie to come out in 3-D

smurfsHow about a big, blue, smurfy nose in your face? The Smurfs are getting their own movie and it's going to be in 3-D and CG. While that's pretty cool, it's really not the most interesting part of this article with Smurfs movie producer Jordan Kerner. Let's just say he is an extreme fan of the cartoon. Kerner says he has watched all 234 episodes of The Smurfs numerous times. He's producing a trilogy of Smurfs movies that fill in the "holes" in all the episodes. He gives the example that sometimes there was another female Smurf that was not Smurfette. He has come up with an explanation for that and many other things, including a backstory for Gargamel. The last time I watched The Smurfs, I was a kid. I sure don't remember any "holes" in the series. I'd like to know where baby Smurfs come from if Smurfette is the only girl!
