Earthworm Jim and Freakazoid. I can't believe I forgot them!

I had heard that they were working on new stuff for EWJ, but that was nearly a year ago. I mean, I'm irrationally clinging on to that last fragment of hope, but a little more news would help.

And Freakazoid...oh, gone before his time. And and bringing the show back would be tough, because with the passing of Ricardo Montalban, it would be near impossible to bring back Armando "Not a Weenie" Guitierrez.

Mutant League! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mutant_League

It was based on bad ass games Mutant League Football and Mutant League Hockey. I loved this cartoon as a kid and the action figures were some of my favorite, Bones always had a home kicking some GI JOE ass as a secret experiment run by COBRA. The video games were equally awesome as the animated series and action figures.

I'd do anything for them to bring back the games in all its bloody and gorey awesomeness.

I never did see the end, how was it?


Memory is fuzzy, but the last episode involved him leaping into himself... sort of. Anyway, you know how at the end of the last episode (and the beginning of the current one), he'd look in the mirror, see who he was playing, and say, "Oh boy"? Anyway, he leapt into a bar, saw who he was in the mirror, and saw that it was himself. He spent the whole episode trying to figure out what he was supposed to do, and then the bartender told him he was between leaps and that his next leaps, that some controlling entity, were going to be harder and that he would leap as himself and not someone else.

Anyway, at the end, he leaps into Al's past to save his marriage (one of them anyway). Then the final text comes up and says that he never makes it home.

I think a lot of fans were a little uptight to learn that he never made it home, but in hindsight, I don't really think there was a better way to end the show.

Police Squad. If this was done after the Naked Gun films it probably would have lasted more than 6 episodes.

They make RiffTrax, which is the same thing, with the same guys, minus the whole "Stuck on a space station" concept, but hey, it's still pretty much the same.

Yeah Rifftrax is good and all, but It just lacks some of that "magic" that MST3K had.

There was an old show, not sure if anyone remembers, but I wished the early 1990's show ( last from fall of 1990 to spring of 1992 ) called Super Force. Was a scifi futuristic show of a Mars Astronaught turned police officer who used a prototype space suit to get bad guys. Watched that every saturday night.

Plus you can see Tracy Lords in one episode kicking ass. XD
