I’ve posted a petition on We the People in honor of Autism Acceptance Month. The full header is “Recognize Autism Speaks as a hate group and revoke its nonprofit status”
It needs 100,000 signatures to get an official response. If you live in the United States, please take a minute to sign it.
animaniacs was ahead of its time
I have to remind myself and the angry fandom side of tumblr about this periodically or this damn website might implode
FUN STORY TIME
Warner Bros. Animation studios was one of the first, if not the first, major media producers to be introduced to, and subsequently effected by, internet “nerd” culture.
Tiny Toon Adventures was on television around the time the internet started to gain popularity, and Warner Bros. found themselves the unwilling targets of various letters and emails from several people in the furry fandom (which, before this point, had been mostly unheard of), requesting naked pictures of Babs Bunny and other characters. One dude in particular sent scores of letters to Tress MacNielle, Babs’ voice actress, describing sexual acts that he wanted to do to the characters she voiced. It became such a problem that Tress began cancelling appearances and soon lost interest in working on Tiny Toons altogether. The show was canceled not long after that.
The man who continually harassed Tress became the inspiration and base model for the “obsessed internet nerd” trope character that would appear at the end of the final episode of Tiny Toons (as “the most frightening thing in the world”), as well as in future shows, such as Animaniacs.
Pssst, Hey Extremist Bronies…. c’mere….. come closer. *puts an arm on your shoulder and pats sympathetically* see this story? See this here? Keep up your lewd shit and you’re not going to have ANYTHING left.
There are still people in the show’s fandom, mostly the younger ones who still have not learned the moral of this episode.
block/report beefvellington for harassment they’re goin around and saying autism isnt real just to start trouble and throwing slurs everywhere
Oh, lovely. That “autism isn’t even real” troll reblogged my latest ASiE post… called me the c-word slur.
One part of me wants to be like:
But the other is like, “don’t feed the trolls”.
Just block his ass and report him!
A new religious statue in the town of Davidson, N.C., is unlike anything you might see in church.
The statue depicts Jesus as a vagrant sleeping on a park bench. St. Alban’s Episcopal Church installed the homeless Jesus statue on its property in the middle of an upscale neighborhood filled with well-kept townhomes.
Jesus is huddled under a blanket with his face and hands obscured; only the crucifixion wounds on his uncovered feet give him away.
The reaction was immediate. Some loved it; some didn’t.
"One woman from the neighborhood actually called police the first time she drove by," says David Boraks, editor of DavidsonNews.net. "She thought it was an actual homeless person."
That’s right. Somebody called the cops on Jesus.
Just like IRL!
These fakies aways gave me the impression they were plotting evil.
This need to be a meme!
These could easily be somebody’s fan characters!
I want to see Jodorowsky’s Dune
Timbox is denying “ToonTalker” is like Cool World (which he never saw, BTW!)
A misunderstood guy goes to another dimension where cartoons live and has a forbidden love with an animated female!
Is that the plot of Toontalker or Cool World?
Brandon Robertson the Twelfth ToonTalker proposes to Lillian Taiayaki with the rare Golden Flower of Shangara while walking through Downtown Baltimore's Inner Harbor waterfront the day after Brandon heals the Great Crystal Stone with the Emerald Shard at the exact moment of sunrise and finally defeats the evil Khan Morgo the Demon-lord and his hordes of minions during the Great Collision of the Two Worlds (the real and cartoon worlds being merged into one world beginning at the stroke of midnight)…
And so Brandon and Lillian lived happily ever after.
(Unlike Romeo and Juliet, of course!)
Hey, Timbox have you ever seen Cool World?
