Well folks, Turtle mania is in full swing now because there will be Happy Meal toys next month. You geeks with kids have it easy, how am I going to justify buying Happy Meals for a month straight?

2013 Lego Galaxy Squad pictures | The Brothers Brick
Wow, I hadn't even heard of this new line. I like the colors and the minifigs a lot. Space and LEGO is always a great combination.

Bandit Guns: Rubber Band Shotgun by Bob Coulston — Kickstarter
A very cool Kickstarter for an amazing rubber band shotgun. If I had anything other than pets to terrorize with this, I'd get one for sure.

The 31 DVDs of Halloween [Complete List] | ShezCrafti
It’s been fun following Jaime’s list of Halloween DVDs the past month. Even though I don’t like horror movies there were a ton of things on her list that I love and it helped me remember what I needed to watch this month.

NBC’s ‘Mockingbird Lane’ Is Morbidly Delightful New Vision Of ‘The Munsters’ | Strange Kids Club

You can’t go wrong with Halloween podcasts.

[Weirdo Toys Guest Post] The Cryptkeeper! (Tales from the Cryptkeeper, Ace Novelty) | PoeGhostal
Spoiler Alert: He’s wearing flip-flops. Justin from Weirdo Toys guest posts at Poe Ghostal and reviews a Cryptkeeper toy. If that doesn’t get you in the Halloween spirit I don’t know what will.

‘Amazing Spider-Man’ Sequel: Casting Harry Osborn
Wow, Paul Dano is a brilliant choice to play the new Harry Osborn, but I’m sure it’ll end up being some young whipper-snapper that I’ve never heard of.

Frankenweenie is ‘good Tim Burton’, which as it turns out still exists
I still need to see Frankenweenie, and this write-up from Ultra Culture makes me want to see it even more. I'm glad 'Good Time Burton' is back.

I'm too lazy to crack ciphers, but this is one of the reasons I love this show too.

So glad to see the Peanuts going with an animation company like Blue Sky instead of Dreamworks. It sounds like these characters are in the right hands. I hope they don't look too weird in CG though.

Website Launched For ‘Monsters University,’ The College | /Film
This is awesome. I can't wait for Monsters University, and as a web designer I would have loved to work on this project. Pixar launched a fake website for the college Mike and Sully will be attending in the upcoming sequel. Heads up, you can actually order the merchandise.

What next for Genndy? | Cartoon Brew
Genndy seems like a great choice to helm a CG Popeye movie, and I hope he keeps it faithful to the classic animation and comic strips. I love Popeye and I'll be first in line to see an awesome new version in theaters.
