What if Team Fortress 2 was a cartoon by the Warners? This cartoon, done by Andrew Kepple, is sheer brilliance if you’re a gamer, and even includes an obligatory Yakkity Sax piece. See how many game references you can find!

I’ve always been a fan of Kepple’s work (since his days doing animutation way back when!) and I’ve found his sense of art and humor is simply awesome. (This is the best I can do: I used to know where his home page was once upon a time). Give his other stuff a watch if you like this. It’ll while the day away!

Awesome flipbook animation. I remember doing this sort of thing in school when I was younger, but never to this sort of scale. The sound effects are about what I’d have produced, though.

I’m a huge fan of both Naruto and The Simpsons, so this drawing (I don’t know who the artist is, but I’d love to give credit!) is worth about +30 geeknesses. Click thru the pic for a full size version. Many more comic style mashups here. Enjoy!

More old cartoons for your nostalgia Friday today, both of them of French origin! The first one is Wattoo Wattoo Super Bird, a cartoon I’d dimly remembered, but could never figure out or recall the name of. Isn’t the Intarwebs a wonderful place for rediscovering the wonders of your youth? I think the premise of this show is best left to Wikipedia:

The eponymous Wattoo Wattoo is a black and white ovoid bird. He comes from a cube-shaped planet called Auguste. In the first episode he becomes aware of the very stupid and extremely wasteful race called Zwas. The Zwas are goose-like creatures that live on the Earth in cities very much like our own. […] Throughout the series Wattoo Wattoo helps the Zwas overcome their problems through the use of his seemingly magical powers. He is able to transform himself into any shape. Should he need the help of others of his race he has only to whistle. Other identicle birds respond to the call and come down from space like comets. As they fly down they vibrate and duplicate themselves until they are a flock ready to take on whatever challenge is required of them.

The second cartoon today is Barbapapa, a bizarre shapeshifting pink blob who tries to fit in with the human world. His family include his wife, Barbamama, and seven kids, collectively called the Barbababies (Barbabeau, Barbabright, Barbazoo, Barbabravo, Barbalib, Barbalala, and Barbabelle, if you want specifics).

Yea, I know it’s a day late. Had a pretty busy Friday and in the rush of things, I kinda forgot about Nostalgia Friday. So…I know that a good number of viewers from my side of the world will remember La Linea, the strange two-minute cartoon about a line drawing and his antics. The show is Italian in origin, and 88 episodes were produced starting in 1969, so it’s WELL old. The show, as you can see from the clip above, features the line man vs his animator, and the antics that follow. Back when I was a kid and this was regularly on TV, I think there was no way of telling when one of these would appear, so it was always a delight to see one pop up on the screen.

Does anyone else remember watching these?

You gotta love the Intertubes. Every now and again it throws something out that’s simply awesome amongst all the other crazy nonsense that exists. So someone eventually had to ask “What would it be like it Watchmen was an 80s cartoon?” Well, wonder no more; here’s a fan-made intro that’s simply brilliant. I think I’d enjoy this cartoon more than the movie.
