The Saturday Morning Cartoon Show cuts his hair...

Hey there fanboys and Freakazettes! Welcome to another episode of The Saturday Morning Cartoon Show.

Today's show, as you are no doubt aware, is a celebration of both the most serious and most absurd aspects of the comics world. While we're all aware that Arkham is a terrifying place and that women in comics should own a fridge at their own peril, there are a myriad of conventions in the books themselves and in the fandom which surrounds them ripe for parody. What do we end up with? Freakazoid, of course!

Since you guys were so delightfully vocal about which episodes you wanted, it's all about the fan service! Keep your ears open for the surprisingly Venture Bros.-esque Toby Danger segment (the writing at any rate) and a special appearance by carpentry guru Norm Abram. It's even more awesome that it sounds.

I know, I'm not getting into too much detail about the show, but we've done it before and to be honest, the Wikipedia article does a much better job than I would at explaining what's going on in this gem of a show. So sit back, enjoy the latest SMCS, and come back next week for a heaping helping of old school: The Ant And The Aardvark! It's swinging, man. ;)
