    I read about this in "Weird NJ Vol 2". Unfortunately, the original Tube Bar (located right here in NJ, in Jersey City) has long since been torn down and moved across the street to make way for an expanded PATH station (PATH being a light rail system that connects NJ and NYC across the Hudson- it's often called the tubes, hence the name "Tube Bar").

    Common sense tells you to wait until Fall or Winter to premiere a movie about Christmas (at least one with less action than Die Hard and Iron Man 3), but 20th Century Fox had so much faith in Miracle on 34th Street, they premiered it during the Summer box office season - 70 years ago today. Check out how hard the trailer strived to hide all holiday imagery:

    In the 60's Jim Henson made a series of commercials for RC Cola. They used two birds, a sad/grumpy bird, and an energetic bird who couldn't get enough cola. Here's an example. The RC lovin' bird sounds exactly like Kermit. (Hopefully you haven't seen this yet.)

    All of Henson's early ad work is great.

    In honor of Adam West, here is his unsold pilot "Lookwell," intended for the 1991 TV season. The script was written by Conan O'Brien!

    Here's another unreleased Weird Al song, this time because he felt it was too mean.

    Apparently this toy from 1998 can say 10,000 things. Pretty advanced.

    Just found out this exists and figured it was just as appropriate to put here as anything else.


    also I found my new favourite MLP video in existence

    This is weird to watch: a concept trailer Cannon Films put together in order to gather investors for a proposed Spider-Man movie, back in 1985. Just imagine.

    Wow, welcome back, Greg! What has it been, like.....twelve years? ...You joined in 2010, so I suppose it's more like seven at the earliest. Feels like twelve.

    Those videos were excellent! I remember watching Pinwheel for hours, though it's mostly a haze now (like the show itself, so maybe I remember it clearly). I do remember Curious George cartoons, Chapi Chapo and Picture Pages. As far as boarding house material goes I remember Coco's Corner, and this one skit where Minus caught a disease where he could only speak in rhymes. The cure was to say "orange" since there was no rhyme for it. I was young enough to assume they were talking about an actual affliction.

    There was a time when the MST3K crew reviewed CURRENT movies. If you ever wanted to see them riff Batman and Robin, they sort of already did it....
