    Wait. Did Matthew make a “Boot to the head” reference? Wow. That’s reaching deep, man–deep into Dr. Demento territory.

      That’s one of my go-to lines, actually. I would have sworn that I’ve used that before.

        You have, quite a few times, though not as many as some of your go-to references.

        Definitely have used it a few times before, Matthew. Just about knocked me out of my chair the first time I head you do it. I didn’t think anyone but me (and my son but that’s my fault) used that reference. You’ve used a couple other lines from the same recording at other times I’m pretty sure.

    There WAS a Battle of the Planets/Thundercats crossover a few years ago.

    Crossover I’d like to see is Indiana Jones/Rocketeer, which is not really mashing up genres but is still a no brainer.

    Agent Oso and Iron Chef crossover.

    Stephen I think the show you were referring to that sounds similar to Morning Glories was called Tower Prep on Disney. Here’s a basic synopsis from IMDB, “Ian is a rebellious teenager who had recently been suspended from his school. Shortly thereafter, he wakes in a mysterious preparatory high school, with no idea how he got there nor where it is located. The school itself is focused on finding the “unique potential” of each of its students. Along the way, he makes friends with C.J., Gabe, and Suki. Together, they investigate the mysteries of the school while trying to escape.”

    Sounds quite similar.

      I actually just realized as I looked up to verify that on IMDB, Tower Prep was created by none other that Paul Dini. lol

      And actually I think it may have been on Cartoon Network, not Disney Channel.

    I want to see a team-up crossover movie that features The Critters, The Ghoulies, The Demonic Toys and The Puppet Master crew. (I know there’s already a Demonic Toys vs. Puppet Master.)

    Or, or, do another Star Trek Tribbles episode/movie but instead of Tribbles, they’re Critters, also known as Krites.

    And by Critters I mean the movie series, not the comic anthology series with Usagi Yojimbo and Cutey Bunny, just in case Matthew was wondering. lol

You know you have something to say, say it in the comment section
