Well, people told me that my breakfast choices would one day come back to haunt me. Look what just landed…
Dan Goodsell‘s latest entry in his series of mashing up the Marvel Universe with the Mister Toastverse has gone to even further heights of wonderful silliness: Shaky Bacon is Galactus, the eater of worlds, and Joe Egg is The Silver Surfer. Awesome.
I think Spidey-Toast would make a great cartoon, so to help with pitching it, I humbly submit to Dan the Spidey-Toast theme song. Enjoy.
Fighting crime from coast to coast
Spins a web around the town
Always lands dry side down
Look-out, here comes the Spidey-Toast!
Is he cool?
He’s more wonder than Wonderbread
Can he swing we say yes
Better written than JMS
That’s why he’s Spidey-Toast.
In the warmth of day
You can find him in the know
Like a streak of gold
At Goodsell’s gallery show
Friendly, good for you Spidey-Toast
Empowered by common sense
All natural ingredients
To him, life is a great big fun game
You will remember his one name
He is the Spidey-Toast!
Dan Goodsell has posted some great sketches to some Topps cards from the early 70s: Monster Initials. Which is what happens when you, um, combine letters with monsters.
If this were a real cartoon, I would be glad to put it in the Needcoffee.com Saturday Morning Cartoon Line-Up. It would be a nice counterpoint to Grant Morrison’s SuperFriends and The Adventures of Barry Ween.
Dan Goodsell, keeper of obscure lore, has stumbled across evidence of something I never knew existed: TV dinners that come with Twinkies inside the box. That’s right: burger, fries, corn…and a Twinkie. Spaghetti, meatballs, what looks like peas…and a Twinkie. Was there ever a time in my life when I would have found those concepts appetizing in the least? I mean, I used to eat Twinkies, but with spaghetti?
Now I’m assuming the Twinkie had to be frozen too, right? So while a Twinkie might sound appealing, imagine a Twinkie you had to reheat. Egad, people.
And what’s great is that the Twinkie just isn’t enough–there’s another dessert in there too.
1974. When Twinkies weren’t just a snack, they were a part of dinner.
Dan Goodsell has again uploaded a bunch of cool stuff to Flickr: this time around it’s pics from a Japanese mag that talks about Kellogg’s cereal and the toys and stuff one can snag from them. Nifty.
Dan Goodsell, creator of Mr. Toast and friends, who we’ve mentioned before, has posted pics of his Disneyland souvenir collection to Flickr ahead of actually selling them.
Highlights for me are the Adventureland shirt, the book and album for the Haunted Mansion, and the Tinkerbell bell. Too cool.
