Archie's Weird Mysteries: The Complete Series / Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century: The Complete Series

Hey, kids!


Television series

Rod Lott
Being a child of the 1970s, there's an entire generation's worth of cartoons I missed out on, and they all seem to come from the same studio: DIC Entertainment. By the time DIC came to prominence with Inspector Gadget in 1983, I was too old, and Saturday mornings were better spent on sleep.

The Lowbrow Reader Reader

Deals a royal flush of smart humor.


Nonfiction

Rod Lott
Zines were the blogs of their day, but you could read them in the bathroom. In the early 1990s, I was heavily plugged into the zine culture, sending stamps and dollar bills away in exchange for these indie pubs. Soon, during a short period of boredom and unemployment, I started one of my own.

A Three Stooges Celebration

Sample the Stooges for not a lot of scratch.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Hopefully, the new-to-DVD Three Stooges movie — which is actually pretty decent, unless you're a humorless mother-nyuk-er — spurs more viewers to try the real thing. For those wanting to sample their black-and-white brand of slapstick with minimal investment, many bargain-DVD collections exist containing only their material that has fallen into the public domain.

The Aquabats! Super Show! Season One! 2012

Ritalin! Not! Necessary! But! It! Won't! Hurt!


Television series

Rod Lott
For those Ritalin-chompin’ children who find Nickelodeon’s Yo Gabba Gabba! too slow-paced, The Hub’s The Aquabats! Super Show! should satiate them. After all, its title has double the exclamation points.

LETTERS


Letters to the Editor

Marty Zumpfe
Apparently, fear and the need to be superhuman is alive and well in Hollywood. Notice how many movies of superheroes have come out recently. In 1970-80, only four superhero movies were released, compared to 115 released since 2001.
