The Top Hat Sasquatch team reads a lot of blog posts every day, and some slip through the crack or just don’t warrant their own post. That’s where Missing Links comes in. Every few days we collect the best links we’ve come across and pass them on to you.

The Crooked Ninja Turtle Gang: Lego Magazine TMNT Ad
I love this LEGO TMNT poster and how it's going for the 1990 movie poster aesthetic.

First Look: Tom Hanks as Walt Disney in ‘Saving Mr. Banks’
Yes please.

Bret McKenzie Will Return for the Next Muppet Movie « ToughPigs
Great news. Bret McKenzie was one of the best things The Muppets had and I'm glad to see he'll back for round two.

J.J. Abrams Forays Into Animation With Adorable ‘Smurfs’-like ‘Beastlies’ | /Film
This is super interesting. These little Etsy characters are adorable and would totally work in films, and kudos to Bad Robot for discovering that.

BOOK REVIEW: The Art of and Making of Peanuts Animation
This sounds great. I love Chronicle's books and anything by Charles Solomon.

I love Ernest as much (ok, a lot more) than the next guy, but his whole appeal died with Jim Varney. I don't want to see some smarmy teenager doing a shitty Varney impression for ninety minutes.

Awesome! It's so exciting to me how much Nickelodeon is promoting the Turtles now.
