Just in case you missed it, Rick and Morty Season 3 episode 1 (see 13 memes that celebrated the grand event here) kind of dropped for April Fool's Day a little while back ago, simultaneously rocking our worlds; and actually inspiring a talented chef to create the show's infamous Szechuan Sauce. Still trying to try that on any and every food ASAP. Anyways, this mod is too much to handle right now. See for yourself.

Chika chika chika bop paaaaaa

Oh, sorry, I was just typing out the theme from the classic Nicktoon Doug. Remember Doug? It was that show about a boring middle schooler, which was somehow really compelling. 

Well, one of the things that gave that show its charms was the sound effects. From the scatty theme song to all those nasally characters, Doug was just as well known for its sound as its look. 

Great Big Story sat down with the man behind it all. Fred Newman is a voice over artist who made all those sounds with his mouth. He asl odid voices for Harry and the HndersonsWho Framed Roger Rabbit?, and, everybody's favorite movie, Gremlins

So if you ever watched Doug and wanted to know how all those sounds were made, this is the video for you.

Hey, it's Saturday morning, and what better way to waste the day than spending 10 minutes thinking about your childhood. After all, you can never get your childhood back, so you might as well think about how great it was not having responsibilities and getting to watch Batman nearly kill some dudes.

This should be a nostalgia trip for many of you, a time when they played cartoons on Saturday mornings only because that was the law. Just kidding. It was just because they didn't know that they could advertise effectively to children yet. Yay!

In light of the unsettling realization about what the cartoon actually is, I can (try and) appreciate the "artist's" intentions here were coming from an allegedly good enough place. But I mean, damn, they should've seen the blowback coming on this one at some point. It's almost impressive. In a single cartoon they didn't fail to hit many of the widely-known trigger points. You know...sexism, feminism, etc.

Useless facts, the hallmark of any smart guy. 

If you don't have a steady stream of useless facts on hand, then you're going to be regurgitating worthless garbage like "did you know that Charlie and the Waitress from It's Always Sunny are married in real life?" Everyone knows that and everyone's sick of pretending to care about it. 

Here's an actual, honest to god, interesting fact that will make your next conversation a blast: The answer to why cartoon characters wear gloves. The answers actually range from the financial to the practical to the racial, and it's worth hearing about, especially if you like trivia. So check it out.
