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.

Freaks and Geeks Reunion Photos | The Mary Sue
2000 seems like such a long time ago. This is a great photo shoot, but come on, a movie would be a little more gratifying.

Corey Feldman Joins TMNT Voice Cast for Season 2
This is good news, but surely he's not going to be Casey Jones? I’m sure the new show will have a much younger, unique Casey Jones than we’re use to, so maybe Feldman wouldn’t be such a bad choice.

Geek Gift Guide: Books

The holidays are upon us, and even though you’re probably being flooded with gift guides, we here at the ‘squatch wanted to add some products that we think are awesome to your radar, whether you’re actually looking for gifts for people or you just troll gift guides looking for cool stuff for yourself. Don’t worry, I do that too.

This year we’re dividing our gift guides up by category, and we’re starting with a Christmas standard: Books. For some reason there are always a few books I want every year, and I don’t like buying them for myself very often so I put them on wishlists. There is no shortage of awesome, geeky books this year, but here are a few standouts that would make great gifts.

‘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.

Yet another reason why I love Gravity Falls – Boing Boing
I'm too lazy to crack ciphers, but this is one of the reasons I love this show too.

Adventure Time‘s Genderswapped Universe Is Getting Its Own Comic Series by Natasha Allegri!
Fiona and Cake, the comic book? Awesome.

Blue Sky to produce Charlie Brown feature | Cartoon Brew
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.

Pendleton Ward Has Started a Video Game Website, You Guys

Posted 8 years ago by Games

I’m willing to bet there are at least 23 video game websites created every day. What doesn’t happen every day is that the amazing Pendleton Ward decides to make a video game website. Ward is the creator of the super-awesome Adventure Time cartoon series. He announced the launch of the Tumblr-based site Friday on his Twitter account @buenothebear.

The site is named I LOVE GAMES YOU GUYS. There’s not much of substance there yet besides a note of his intentions. With his first post he said, “My name is Pendleton Ward. I want to interview people who work on games.” He seems to have pretty lofty goals as he followed up with a question about interviewing anyone involved with the Mario games.

Besides just the notion of Pendleton creating a game site, it’s nice to see that he’s including some simple animation on the site. He’s got three Adventure Time-esque Mario cartoons posted. Each is a black and white line drawing of four frames each. Simple yet effective.

Here’s hoping Pendleton gets his wish to interview someone from the world of Mario, perhaps even Miyamoto himself. I hope that he takes time to interview the people of the smaller, indie games as well.
