- A look at some of Arnold's Grandpa's most questionable moments: bit.ly/1ObrEpO https://t.co/TNLZ9DVYns 9 months ago
Things like this are why we love the Internet. Recently many folks online have pointed out similarities between AMC’s The Walking Dead and beloved 90s classic, Toy Story. My personal favorite is the undeniable resemblance between Lotso the a-hole bear, and The Governor. Check out this video below, which is only about 42 seconds minus the credits, but still so, so very fantastic.
For those foggy on Mr. Simmons, let’s jog your memory and get you up to speed.
He was a teacher on Hey Arnold and, as the picture makes evident, he was essentially an adult version of Doug Funnie. Does anybody remember this moment shown below? It features Simmons nearly dropping an F-Bomb which we probably didn’t even think twice about as kids:
Donning those classic green sweater vests with a white shirt underneath — these two resemble a father and son coordinating outfits for the family portrait. It makes one wonder, was this intentional or were the cartoonists at Nickelodeon simply lazy about drawing out new wardrobes? Whatever the case may be, it’s hard to see one without thinking of the other in the back of your mind, because the resemblance is fu…fudging uncanny.
Before watching all of these romantic comedies or being consumed by Bella and Edward of Twilight fame, we had one fiction relationship that we rooted for and emotionally invested in as if we were a part of it. Cory and Topanga, the couple developed over 7 seasons of Boy Meets World,is the definition of romance in the eyes of 90s kids and Disney lovers across the globe. They are returning, fulfilling one of my top three prayers of returns from that decade (still have fingers crossed for Legends of the Hidden Temple and Supermarket Sweep revivals).
Danielle Fishel and Ben Savage officially signed on to the series, which will be called Girl Meets World. It’ll cover the married couple parenting their 13-year-old daughter. This is good news. No, this is great news. I know there are many skeptics who are treating this comeback like a fragile, old collectors item that they don’t want anyone to touch because they fear it’ll get damaged. I understand that, really I do – but this is CORY AND TOPANGA we’re talking about here, I’m not seeing anyway that it’s not, at the very least, better than the other junk being aired on Disney.
The only legitimate downside of this is that it magnifies our rapid aging. Copanga (admit it, you love that) being old enough to have a teenage daughter means we’ve come a long way from watching Boy Meets World on ABC’s TGIF back in ’95. Let’s embrace this. Sure it could be bad but so what? If it’s the worst thing ever, we can just pretend it didn’t happen… Like the new Figure It Out on Nickelodeon. Folks don’t even acknowledge that mess’ existence.
Be happy! Are you happy? This feels like when you have potential career news you’re excited to tell your Mom about and you hope that she’s ecstatic, but you know there’s a chance she’ll be like, “Meh, that sounds like a scam but I guess if you want to do that with your life…” – crushing every ounce of joy and excitement you had in a matter of seconds. Don’t do that to me – be as excited as I am. Let’s rekindle our crush on Topanga and hope that Feeny (Feeee-he-he-heenay) returns for a cameo or ten.
Matilda is a classic book and film from the 1990s that entertained – but also disturbed us. The specific character responsible for our discomfort was the physically intimidating, demented, aggressive Miss Trunchbull. This woman, who resembled anything but one, did a number of things that are typically prohibited in schools. Let’s take a look at some of her disturbing deeds.
Shoving Kids In The Chokey: My deepest fear for a good portion of my childhood, was being forcefully placed in a Chokey-esque room. With its snug dimensions, and nails & glass shards sticking out of the walls, The Chokey takes the cake for teacher-student brutality… Speaking of cake, let’s move on to her next action.
