What is that dinosaur-thing called? Bunty or Bungie or something? I haven't seen that meme in ages.

Do you mean Reddit? Yes.

It's pronounced "sommoflange." I don't care how it's spelled. Evidence!

What astonishingly high-quality animation. Okay, goodbye.

Does anyone want to look at this wound. it looks funny.

From the very network that carries the show it's based on? Astonishing indeed.

I don't know the dinosaur thing, also don't know the bird with arms, I guess it is from SA.

So, basically this is Cartoon Network parodying their own programming? It's a well-done piece, but it feels a little too inside-the-machine (kind of like the execrable LOST parodies that ABC used to make as viral vids) to really have the same impact as something made independently of the original source.

We really are going to be making internet meme jokes in the old folks home, aren't we? Maybe they can just put this on continuous play on our brainscreens while we drool and gibber.

Well, its probably pretty funny for kids who watch a lot of CN programing overall.

Strange Interlude -- the whole show is like that (MAD TV, on Cartoon Network). Needless to say, it's my 9-year-old's favorite.

It is like when my mom starts doing that "I can't pay the rent" or "step by step, slowly I turn", I am like, mom, lay off the peach schnapps

And this is why I nearly died when that episode of King of The Hill tried to explain why Ray J Johnson was funny.

This is trying too hard, although I bet 10-year-olds will love it, which... is fine, honestly.

I'm just going to go back to thinking about Adventure Time and how Marcelline and Princess Bubblegum should totally get back together, oh my glob.

I was more interested in this crazy ping pong game that showed up in the related videos at the end.

There's something ineffably embarrassing about watching mainstream venues reference Internet memes. It's like when your parents tried to be funny by rapping or imitating black slang.

"Single Link (to a) Tube (of) You". Normally we would say "You(r) Tube", of course, but "Tube of You" is grammatical too. Don't be so pedantic!

CN's new MAD show is at least as good as most of the better Mad Magazines (hit-or-miss, often obviously formulaic, but always something to make me ROFLMAO), and well-animated, in general and in re-creating the magazine's style. It will go far toward helping us to wipe from our collective memories the abomination that was MAD-TV on FOX.

I thought it was pretty cute.

Is Thundercats still playing? I thought this was aimed at 30yolds, what with Thundercats being from the early 80s. And if it's still
playing - are they making new episodes, or just replaying the old ones?

also - how the hell did Lionel grow up so fast and no one else changed age?

Bunchie!

I've been racking my brain trying to remember that since last night.

Cartoon Network has always been good at poking fun at itself.

The last two are the best ones.
