Three more films in the “Short Films by Short People” series have aired on the Splat and been uploaded to Youtube, so here’s more of my episode guide! I mean, how can you go wrong with a singing piranha, a talking eyeball, and crudely animated cgi sloths?
Nickelodeon had so many beloved sitcoms in the 90’s, both animated and live action. But today I offer a salute to a very unique show- one that, despite its size, left big memories in many of us. Remember that short where the kid was tempted to eat his friend’s triple decker sandwich? If so, hit the jump and take a turn back in time complete with Episode Guide.
Welcome to a brand-new feature on our blog, exploring the endlessly bizarre world of paperback horror books. They’re always trashy, always flashy, and often hilarious.
Joel: I feel like a sasquatch love story should have a more distinctive title than “Monster.”

Check it out HERE.
For every “Goodnight Moon” or “Poky Little Puppy”, there’s thousands of kids’ books out there that don’t become standards at bedtime or preschool story hour. And in the case of these books, the reasons why are obvious, starting with murder and cannibalism.
“Attack of the Giant Vulture,” “Foil Man”, and the rest- where did they come from? Why did the films just STOP, and why is their so little info on them? Here’s what we do know about those half-remembered bits of surrealism from commercial breaks, and the questions we have yet to answer. Read More
