Tales from the Toon Trenches Saturday Morning Fab Four Flashback


One of the hard truths about animated cartoons is that many of them simply do not stand the test of time very well. For every Bugs Bunny there are multiple Flip the Frogs, characters and cartoons that are watchable today only as history. That is why I was delighted to stumble over one of those 1960s Saturday morning Beatles cartoons recently and discover that, despite their stylized cheapness and off-the-wall content (or maybe because of those), they hold up beautifully today. These short musical romps, which began airing on ABC in 1965, present the Four at their fabbest and most gonzo.


Japan Plays the Real-Life Game of Life


One of the oldest board games still around today, The Game of Life, with its iconic spinner and brightly colored board, continues to enjoy success around the world. 2013 marks the game's 45th anniversary in Japan and one island is celebrating by turning itself into a gigantic Game of Life board complete with spinners, pretend money and hopefully minivans.

From July 20th to September 16th, Yoron Island, located just north of Okinawa, will be home to the massive board game event. The plan came about due to the fact that the island is shaped like the part of the game board where the spinner sits, which is about as sound of a reason that one could hope for.
