Cool Stuff from Cool and Collected: PVC Figures

Posted 8 years ago by Toys

Cool Stuff from Cool and Collected

One of my favorite sites in the blogosphere is Cool & Collected, a pop culture site run by Brian Adams. A couple weeks ago, Brian starting posting some excess toys he was wanting to get rid of (something I should probably do) and one of his posts caught my eye. I love action figures as much as the next geek, but something I’ve never really blogged about that I have a major addiction to is PVC figures. When one of Brian’s posts contained a bunch of them, I snatched them up.

I swear guys, I didn’t even know I was collecting these things. I just realized that I have a ton of them from when I was younger, and some of them have been played with more than my old action figures. They were usually made by Applause or Schleich, and based on the figures I have, were sold at Disney theme parks a lot. I have a lot of Mickey, Donald, Figment, and various Disney characters in tiny PVC form.

10 Awesome Things About ‘A Muppet Family Christmas’

Posted 9 years ago by Television

A Muppet Family Christmas

If you listened to our last episode of Bubble Pipe Theater, you heard me mention ‘A Muppet Family Christmas’ as I rambled on about the Muppets with Tim and Rob. I can’t believe I haven’t written about it on the site before, because it just may be my all-time favorite holiday special. It’s a unique blend of Henson characters that just couldn’t be possible today with Disney owning the Muppets.

‘A Muppet Family Christmas’ first aired on television way back in 1987 and I just have vague memories of seeing it as a kid. It wasn’t until 2003 when I picked up the (now out of print) DVD that I fell in love with it. The hour-long show is the perfect blend of Christmas warmth and the classic Muppet humor we grew to love with The Muppet Show and the early movies. Without further ado, I’d like to kick off a new series here on the site with 10 Awesome Things about ‘A Muppet Family Christmas.’

If you’ve got some kiddoes around the house or your name is Rob and you mentioned on a podcast that you never really watched Fraggle Rock, you should probably buy this.

What did that Doozer just Say on Fraggle Rock?

My wife and I are almost done making our way through the Fraggle Rock Complete Series set, and we about died when we saw this clip from an episode in the fourth season. We figured out what it is that he really said, but come on, I couldn’t resist being a little immature and making this video.
