cartoons and pornos are all based on regular movies.

So I was at the video store last night, looking for some movies to watch with Will and Paal "I'm Actually The Lead Singer Of The Ferd" Harstad, when I found some incredible video cassettes that I had never imagined could actually exist. That's right: AN ANIMATED SERIES BASED ON BACK TO THE FUTURE. I think at that moment, when I found those video cassettes, my life had just opened up to a million different possibilities. I grew up on shows like these! Naturally, I ran the numbers in IMDb and checked if this was indeed a real thing, or if it was just a figment of my imagination. It's real.



As an avid watcher of other animated series based on TV shows, movies, and video games (i.e. "Muppet Babies", "Slimer and the Real Ghostbusters", "The Super Mario Bros. Super Show"), I honestly cannot believe that this wonderful-looking series passed me by. Based on this search, Christopher Lloyd was too busy being an Angel in the Outfield to provide the voice for Doc, so, naturally, everyone's favorite substitute voice, Dan Castellaneta (Homer Simpson, The Genie in Aladdin sequel Return of Jafar) provides it. To see if I had missed out on any other Back To The Future-related media events, I ran the numbers again in IMDb. These are the only other titles that may relate to the late great trilogy:

Backside to the Future (1986) (V)
Backside to the Future II (1987) (V)
Black to the Future (1986)
Looking Back at the Future (2006)
Back to Nature; or, The Best Man Wins (1910)
Marching Out of Time (1993) aka "Back to the Fuehrer" - (English title) (video title)
Yari Yari: Black Women Writers and the Future (1999)
Back to the Black Lagoon: A Creature Chronicle (2000) (V)
Back to Hannibal: The Return of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn (1990) (TV)

As you might guess, the first three in that list are of the "adult" persuasion. I think, for completists sake, I need to see all of them, though. (ESPECIALLY "Black to the Future".) Who's with me?

On a side note, I realized, while strongly suggesting the rental of the aforementioned series, that I DON'T KNOW HOW TO PICK A GOOD MOVIE ANYMORE. Seriously. This whole summer, Chris, Brigitte and I rented movies that we thought would be horrible enough to have a good laugh at -- including classics like Funky Monkey -- and now, when I go to the video store, I suggest titles like The Ring Two, Mindhunters, and, of course, Saw.

Which reminds me -- CHRIS, NERDFLIX MINDHUNTERS IMMEDIATELY.

qualler out.

    I'm with you. I'll bring my copy of Black to the Future next time I visit.

    The kids on the animated series were named Jules and Verne.

    Also, I am certainly in on this time-traveling porno-watching quest.
