    The Chance Toboggan:



    A fairly rare 70's roller coaster, designed for carnivals. Makes me dizzy just looking at it.

    This is actually part of a PSA for the Will Rogers Institute as part of their annual summer fundraising campaign. I think the lack of context is the main joke. But the guy who uploaded this to Instagram said he'd upload the whole thing to Vimeo soon.

    25 years later, Socks The Cat Rocks The Hill has finally been released for the SNES. Someone bought the unreleased game and Kickstarted a print run. Backers got their copies this week. Shouldn't take long for the ROM to start floating around.

    Next batch of Nick Knacks episodes for you. First up, What Will They Think of Next! A Canadian science and technology show that ultimately works better as a bathroom book.



    Then, PopClips, a pre-MTV music video show created by a former Monkee and an exploitation film director!

    If you'll excuse the pun, Namco Museum for the Nintendo Switch has given me a morbid fascination with Splatterhouse (which I don't remember hearing about beforehand), and now I learned that Japan got a Tiger Electronics version of the game:

    Butch Hartman's YouTube channel is great. But you likely already knew that.

    They previously made Hipster Disney Princess Funko Pops. I think they were exclusive to Hot Topic, appropriately.

    Here's a random video I found on Youchew (volume warning)

    A new chapter (no pun intended) in the search I started on LMW for the second variant of the Reading Rainbow theme: a higher-quality version of the intro resurfaced earlier this month:

    I also started a LMW search for some McDonald's commercials that aired during the house fire episode of The Hogan Family (then known as Valerie's Family); McDonald's financed the set damage and in exchange made these PSA's to air during the program. So far only one has been found:


    And in honor of Stephen Hawking I feel it necessary to revisit this Comic Relief segment I shared here a while back, which also features a grand all-star cast:

    come to think of it, the Hawking video now reminds me of this recent Alexa commercial which also features a lot of people attempting to replace her:

    Here's something I thought I'd never see: Bert and Ernie performing at the 1976 Grammy Awards. Complete with Japanese subtitles!

    I wish I could have seen this live, but I had somewhere to be. Hopefully they'll do another one.

    No way!!! One of my friends was talking a lot about Freakazoid yesterday and they said they want to be an animator one day partially cause they want to make a spiritual successor to Freakazoid.
