When the 1920's ended, America was left with a shortage of crazy fads.  Goldfish went un-swallowed.  Flagpoles went un-sat upon.  Charleston's went un-charlestoned. Dozens of dead bodies were pried out of a single phone booth. By and large people stopped messing around and...

School's out, and this summer, there's only one place to find elementary school children.  No, not the basketball courts.  No, not the movie theater.  No, not the swimming hole, they cut down the rope swing after Tommy broke his leg.  No, not the mall.  No, not...

It's every parent's nightmare:  You're woken up at 3AM by a knock at your front door.  When you open it, there's a somber looking policeman standing there, his hat in his hands. He avoids eye contact with you, and his voice quivers as he begins to speak.  Before he...

Teaching kids about the evils of racism in a clear, culturally-sensitive manner is a difficult task.  Fortunately for us, it’s something the makers of educational shorts from decades past were woefully inept at!  Are People All the Same? takes an interesting approach.  In order...

The bartender says "I was talking to the duck!"  And, so it was finished, before it had even begun.  She was a dark and stormy dame.  Really, that's a badger?  "Over there, behind the fake tree," she said.  The record scratched at midnight, as it...

Do you ever stop to reflect on what an ungrateful, useless little puke you were as a child?  Like when your father came home after his 60 hour work week with the new lunchbox he thought you wanted, and you threw a red-faced tantrum because it was Go-Bots, not Transformers?  Or the time...

We all have a certain summer memory.  One that we find ourselves fondly reminiscing over as the days get longer and hotter.  A memory of a different time, when we still retained our childlike innocence, but possessed a desire to stretch our wings and explore the world around us. These...
