Splatterday Mourning Cartoons: Garfield and Friends – The Horror Hostess

Ho-wdy Cartoon Creeps! On Tuesday the 19th, a great icon of Ho-rror celebrated his 39th birthday…

Of Corpse I’m talking about Garfield the cat, the comic creation of Jim Davis.
What’s that you say? Garfield isn’t a ho-rror icon? Oh, my darklings… I’m sorry to say, but you’re wrong… DEAD wrong!

For starters, Garfield’s Halloween Adventure is the greatest animated Halloween special of all time and forever! Sure, Charlie Brown’s awesome and all, but let’s get real; that “Red Baron” nonsense is a total drag! Plus, there isn’t a single scare in the whole special. That’s why GHA reigns supreme… there’s absolutely no filler and it has scares o’plenty. Only a child with nerves o’ steel can look upon these ghost pirates without shrieking…
See? Those things are NIGHTMARE FUEL!

Still not convinced? Feast your eyes and glut your soul on this grim tale from the ACTUAL Garfield comic strip from 1989:

Holy Crap!

Still a non-believer? Well, I’ve got the perfect pair of Terror Toons for you! From the uber awesome Garfield and Friends, it’s part one and two of The Horror Hostess!

Ahh… isn’t that a tit-le that just speaks to you? It certainly speaks to me! What’s even better is that this two-parter centers around an Elvira parody and features all sorts of ghoulish delights! Monsters! Dragons! Black Magic! Shrinking Victims! Why, it sounds like my birthday! 😉
Another spooky-cool aspect of this episode is that the Ho-rror Ho-stess is voiced by scream queen Brinke Stevens! Now That’s ho-rror cred!
Don’t be a scaredy cat… check out the Ho-rror of The Horror Hostess below:

All hail Garfield, Master of Fright! 🙂

#SuperheroSunday Sinema: New Adventures of Batman – He Who Laughs Lasts

Dedicated to the great Adam West, who voiced Batman on this series. xoxoGreetings, citizens! It’s another Superhero Saturday here at Kinky Horror, so it’s time to turn on the signal and summon the Caped Crusader himself…
That’s right, old chums! We’ve got an episode of The New Adventures of Batman to help in your never-ending fight against Saturday Morning boredom! The New Adventures of Batman was a ’70s cartoon produced by Filmation, the same studio behind motherfreakin’ She-ra: Princess of Power! Based on that bit o’ info, I’m sure you can guess that the series nothing but pure awesome!
And it was! The series the kind of Silver Age-like craziness we don’t see that often these days. It was completely BATty (Ha! Suck on that, Joker!), but it was totally fun. The series is from a time when the Dark Knight wasn’t all that dark and crimefighting was just a jolly time.
We wish to express our gratitude to the enemies of crime and crusaders against crime throughout the world for their inspirational example. To them, and to lovers of adventure, lovers of pure escapism, lovers of unadulterated entertainment, lovers of the ridiculous and the bizarre— To funlovers everywhere— This cartoon is respectfully dedicated.

If we have overlooked any sizable groups of lovers, we apologize.
