Caramel Apple Oreo cookies are OUT NOW. Here’s what I thought of them!
I’ve been pushing Dino Drac’s social media accounts this week because I’m lame, but also because Halloween is coming and I wanted to have as much access as I can to folks, to let them know when the site’s been updated.
So, if you’re into my stuff, here are three other ways to keep up with it!
Thank you, thank you.
Are we discounting TMNT since it crossed into the ’90s? Because if not, it’s gotta be that. From a pure “I like this cartoon” standpoint, that’d be the one.
But, excluding that, and removing any emotional ties to franchises based on toys, movies, comics and whatnot, it’d probably be a tie between Garfield & Friends, and the post-movie episodes of The Transformers. (Garfield, from the kid-that-was-me’s perspective. TF, from the kid-that-is-me’s perspective.)
1. Sadly, I have not. I think it’s a great concept, though. Just didn’t get around to it.
2. I am a Simpsons fan, but kind of a lapsed fan. I lost track of it way back when. Not because I thought it sucked or anything. I just “did.” I used to stuff my DVR with it, but stopped after that one episode where they got a bird or something, and Bart made the gross smoothie with, erm, bird food. I don’t use the word “trigger” often, but worms in a blender is definitely one of mine, and fear of running into that episode again actually made me remove it from my DVR. No joke. I’m a loser.
4. Favorite episode? I’d really have to think on that. I’m honestly not sure. I might not have one. I have tons of favorite moments, though. If forced, I’d go with the original Xmas special (sentimental reasons), or the one where Homer steals cable… because I randomly taped it off TV and watched it a thousand times.
5. You didn’t ask, but my favorite minor Simpsons bit will always be “open-faced club sandwich.”
I’ve mentioned this before, but here’s the news expanded into a full review: The original Krang figure is back on store shelves!
It’s mainly that the secret appeal of these movies — at least, the early ones — are the endearing getaways of random kids, and all of the fun/awkward friendships, romances and moments that come with them. In my view, 2 and 4 made the most of that. 4 arguably did it better since that was a literal vacation and not a camp, but 2 is right up there.
But the real reason is that Ginny is by far the greatest hero of the franchise, and the best character, too.
It’s probably P4, but P3 is really close too.
#1 - Can’t really count “Boy Jason.”
#2 - My favorite F13 movie, but definitely not my favorite Jason. (Interesting take on him, nonetheless.)
#3: Excellent. Monstrous stalker with fucked up head. Dug the energy level of this Jason in particular, too.
#4: To me, this has gotta be the quintessential look. A perfect blend of “human” and “supernatural monster.” This is the “Frankenstein” of Jasons.
#5: Doesn’t really count, and even if it did, wouldn’t be my fave.
#6: A fan favorite and a good look, but not my fave.
#7: Some fans hate this look, but I’ve grown to love it. I can’t call it my favorite though, because I prefer my Jasons somewhat “human.” Here, he looks like a dinosaur. Still, given where they were in the franchise, that kind of made sense.
#8: Not bad (aside from the unmasking), but doesn’t pop.
#9: The brief glimpses probably represent my least favorite of Jason’s looks.
#10: Again, didn’t really pop for me. “Space Jason” was more of a goof concept, even if it looked pretty good.
FVJ: No strong feelings on this one. Though I do feel that they should’ve kept Kane in the role. Kane’s Jasons aren’t my favorites in term of appearance, but by that point, he was the guy, and if you’re making a movie where the opinions of diehards is gonna carry a lot of weight, you might as well throw them a bone.
Remake: Didn’t do much for me, on any front, really.
(Also, if your question was more “general” and had nothing to do with look, I’d still go with Part 4.)

Randomly selected Dino Drac archive post: A look at some of my favorite horror videocassette boxes!
The Mini-Posters for the next Dino Drac Funpack came in, and BOY ARE THEY UGLY! Thanks to all subscribers, new and old. If you missed the scoop on the Spooky September boxes, check ‘em out here.
Oh awesome, thanks for the tip! I loved the little I’ve heard of Austin’s podcast, so this should be a good one. (Been really curious about Kamala’s story, too.)
My favorite Ninja Turtles character and one of the best action figures ever, back on store shelves. You’re just as beautiful today, Krang.
I went to the Monster-Mania horror convention last Friday. Come check out all of the cool things I couldn’t afford to buy!
Found a bag of vintage Halloween toys at a Goodwill store over the weekend. Of course I had to have it. I’m so ready for September. Or, in Dino Drac’s case, August 30th.
