‘Muppet Babies’ Reboot Happening in 2018 and This is Why I’m Excited

Muppet Babies Reboot

The internet took a break from talking about Donald Trump briefly this week when Variety confirmed the upcoming Muppet Babies reboot that was previously scooped by ToughPigs. If you haven’t read the ToughPigs scoop, I highly recommend it. It has character descriptions and even some sample dialogue.

Muppet Babies was a very influential part of my early childhood, and this reboot comes at the perfect time. The wife and I are about to have our first kid, and it makes me so happy to know she will be able to watch reboots of Muppet Babies, especially since episodes of the original are so hard to track down.

The new show will be catered to the very young crowd (see Disney Junior) and probably not very watchable for adults. This is coming from someone who would rather watch cartoons over any live-action television, but I doubt it will be a show for us. However, I’m sure it’ll be a fine show to watch with your kids. Why am I so excited about it then?

Cool Stuff: DuckTales Promotional Folder from 1987

DuckTales

DuckTales will always be one of the things I am most nostalgic for, along with classic Nintendo and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It just always reminds me of my childhood and I love getting my hands on anything DuckTales related. I was looking around online for obscure bits of DuckTales history yesterday and found this cool promotional folder that was used to get Disney licensees pumped about their new animated TV show.

Cool Stuff: Marvel Superheros ‘Got Milk’ Commercial

Posted 2 years ago by Television

I vaguely remember seeing this commercial back in the day, but it’s interesting to see now that we’re actually used to having The Avengers in live action on film. The costumes in this Got Milk commercial are straight out of the comics, and are pretty interesting. That Hulk actually looks kind of awesome! I know they wouldn’t have been able to use that for a movie very well, but it looks really cool. And that Spidey costume doesn’t look bad at all.

Iron Man on the other hand looks a little derpy.

Jetsons Valentine Scans [1989]

Jetsons Valentines

Remember when The Jetsons surged in popularity again in the 80s and early 90s? The show came back in 1985 and then they released Jetsons: The Movie in 1990, so it’s no surprise that they made Jetsons Valetines in 89. I don’t know if kids would have been that excited about getting Valentines featuring George Jetson and the gang, but I probably would have. I was a weird kid though.

Ducktales Valentine Scans [1986]

Ducktales Valentine

I’ve loved putting together the Vintage Valentine Giveaway this year, and I really think it’s going to be an annual thing on Top Hat Sasquatch. One of the best parts is just getting to see all these retro Valentines again. Some I actually remembered having as a kid.

But some, like these awesome Ducktales Valentines from 1986, were a little before my elementary school days so I never had them. Being obsessed with retro stuff, especially retro stuff based on my favorite cartoons, I love seeing the designs on these Valentines. Part of my original idea for doing the Valentine giveaway was that I could take my favorites and scan them before I sent them out to people so I could archive them in blog posts here. That way everyone can see all the Valentines!

Below is a gallery of all the Valentines that came in this Ducktales box. Click each one to embiggen, and feel free to download and share these!
