    As I noted in the comments, that bottom video has more views than the one it spoofed, and I feel partly responsible.

    Turns out Tim Allen wasn't Pixar's first choice for Buzz. They wanted Billy Crystal, and created this test animation:

    Weird. It does make the casting of him as Mike from Monsters, Inc. even more interesting, though.

    Here's something interesting- Maurice LaMarche on a game show, in this case the short-lived NBC game Wordplay, which aired from 1986-87 and was Tom Kennedy's final hosted game show. Here, Maurice talks about replacing Jack Mercer as the voice of Popeye (implying his appearance here was to tie in with the ill-fated Popeye and Son, which actually aired on CBS).

    "What Powell's Throws Out" showed off an Angry Little Girls comic book once, but I don't know if you saw any of the cartoons that led to that comic (NSFW language):


    I saw clips of them when Ann Curry hosted a PBS special about Asian-Americans, and Lela Lee came up at the end.

    An hour and a half of obscure 80's synth music. Because I care about you all.

    A pilot for a Hanna-Barbera animated sitcom that was never made. If it had been animated, there wouldn't have been much more movement than this.

    Uh, it was made- it ran as a summer replacement series on CBS in 1970, and was recently released on DVD by Warner Archive.

    An unboxing video....before unboxing videos were cool. It's a guy opening his new Betamax player in 1978. Looks like packaging hasn't changed much since then.

    Some great lines: "It's so TINY!" "It's all silver!" Who knew electronics without woodgrain would be a thing?

    Does it sound fair for me to find the sight of Ghostbusters as the first title in a collection of "family" videotapes more questionable now than when I was younger? Our copy (from 1999) didn't come from this line, for the record.

    I'd still show it to kids. It didn't warp us at their age, did it? ....Maybe it did....

    I guess I find it odd because the last few times Sony re-released Ghostbusters to home video, they seemed to market it more to children of the '80s and '90s, than to a general family audience, although I've followed only a few of Sony's efforts to keep today's kids interested in Columbia's first GBs.
