top-tv-grandparents-mtv-geek

Moms, dads and secretaries aren’t the only ones who get a special day on the calendar. Grandparents do too! Some of the grandmas and grandpas out there might be the cause for nightmares, but most are likely the highlight of our lives thanks to their old-timey stories, the fact that they always have treats for us and they never cease to amaze when they remember your birthday and you get that crisp $5 bill. To celebrate their day, we’re counting down the top grandparents of all time that have graced our TV screens over the years.

Maybe I'm a sucker, being the son of an architect and all, but Iñaki Aliste Lizarralde's architectural renderings of famous fictional houses are awesome. There's tons of them on his Tumblr, but check out a few of the geekiest below: Read More...

Woo-Hoo! NECA has just announced a collaboration with 20th Century Fox to put out a limited set of figures celebrating classic guest stars on Fox's "The Simpsons," with Tom Hanks, Kid Rock, Hal Hefner, Yao Ming and James Brown in the first wave of 25 projected figures available in 2014.  They will have my money if the Brown figure goes, "This bandstand wasn't double-bolted!  Huh!"

But which guest-stars will make up the remaining figures in this line?

Now, what's of note is that these are guest stars playing themselves, as opposed to voicing original characters.  This is a gray and complicated area that demands deep thought, maybe.

I'm going out on a limb and saying that Mel Gibson won't get a figure, despite hanging extensively with Homer back in the day.  I am further uncertain as to whether this precludes Johnny Cash as the voice of the spirit-coyote Homer saw after eating Guatemalan insanity peppers, or John Waters as the very John Waters-esque John the kitsch-shop owner.   And what about David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as their "X-Files" characters?  And then there's the entire issue of Michael Jackson as "Michael Jackson."

At this point, I'm very confused.

Well, look: Here's a wish-list for some of our favorites, with appropriate outfits/accessories.  Ah, memories: Read More...

It’s that time of year when we’ve done away with the butterfly and pastel adorned greeting cards, and traded them in for ones littered in sporting goods and blue. Father’s Day is here, but when it comes to the animated dads, it's a mixed bag. Most don’t have the nurturing charisma that their motherly counterparts do, but we love them anyway... Because underneath their hard shell made up of attitude, yelling and furrowed brows, are great, great Dads. Here are the ten best... Ever:

mothersday

By Kendra Beltran

Being a mom is something I will never be. I don’t have the mindset, maturity or social life to attain that title, but it’s something I admire greatly. Of course I love my own, but I couldn’t help but think about the 2D moms that graced my small screen from the time I was little to today. To celebrate Mother’s Day, we’re going to show some appreciation to these lovely animated ladies who were so great that we often wished they were our own; at least for one day! From the working mom to the crazy mom to the whale mom to everything else in between we wish these gals and all their real-life counterparts a very happy Mother's Day!

Don Payne, I am lucky to have known you. You are so missed."

This Sunday, December 9 at 8pm on FOX, "The Simpsons" hometown of Springfield collides with Portland in "The Day the Earth Stood Cool." Fittingly, the episode, guest-stars "Portlandia" creators Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein as hip parents who move in next door to The Simpsons, causing all sorts of "we're not cool enough" chaos for the classic TV family.

I jumped in on a conference with Armisen, Brownstein and "Simpsons" executive producer, and writer of the episode, Matt Selman to talk the genesis of the Portland-focused story, how the "Portlandia" crew got involved, and what it's like to work with Homer Simpson.
