Animation Domination High-Def is a block of time when cartoons air! Saturdays on FOX at 11PM/10c and all over the Internet all the time for people that don't have time to wait for their TV - who does anymore. Not me. Hi youtubers I love you! Let's touch the screen together. Ok now lets kiss. Hi!
Though created as a rather transparent knock off of the Transformers tv series and toy line,Tonka's GoBots proved popular enough that Hasbro eventually bought out the franchise in 1991. Before that merger however, the Gobots succeeding in making a shit-ton of money on toys like these!
G.I. Joe PSA parodies are viral videos created by Chicago-based filmmmaker Eric Fensler in 2003. Fensler’s production company Fensler Films created a total set of 25 spoof PSAs, and spread primarily through Ebaumsworld as embedded Quicktime videos before YouTube was created.
The original 1980’s G.I. Joe cartoon by Sunbow/Marvel that ran from 1984-1987, and by DiC Entertainment from 1989-1991, featured Public Safety Announcement’s at the end of each episode called “knowing is half the battle”. The Fensler parodies dubbed over these with nonsensical dialogue about pork chop sandwiches, body massages, and computers telling you to “stop all the downloadin’”.
Hasbro issued a cease and desist letter to Fensler on September 9th, 2004, claiming grounds based on copyright infringement. Fensler complied and took down the videos, but it was too late. The content had spread all over the Internet by this point.
Eric eventually stared hosting his original set of 25 on his website again. You can view them here.
