  • DeCarlo Rules: It seems like they put extras on a disc because people expect them, or it helps drive sales, but more often than not, it seems like very little thought goes into the content. Of course there are some examples where the extras are exceptional, but usually that's not the case.

  • irishmoxie: I love digital movies and streaming. I usually get the Blu-ray Disc because I like to watch the extras the first time and then end up adding the digital code online or rip it and put it on the hard drive. Just much more convenient to stream it then search for the disc when I want to watch it.

  • DeCarlo Rules: On the other hand, maybe I should just bypass the Blu-Ray format altogether, buy a huge terabyte HD, and download everything. There's something to be said for that, in that you can get everything quicker and stacks of Blu-Ray cases aren't taking up space in your house, I guess.

  • DeCarlo Rules: This coming from a guy who still hasn't capitulated to the inevitable domination of Blu-Ray. It's getting to the point where I might have to relent, since I've seen some anime sets being released for the first time on Blu-Ray (no combo pak) with NO release of a DVD version.

  • DeCarlo Rules: I'll never get used to people not being able to wait a few days when they order stuff online. I guess maybe I could understand it IF it were something that there was no other way to see, but I assume you've already seen the episodes.  People who are that impatient usually don't even buy disc sets, they just buy it digitally or stream it.

Parodies, Cameos, and Crossovers
« on: May 09, 2016, 06:21:16 am »
Back when I was a newbie before everything fell apart in the Server Purge, I browsed many topics, including ones dedicated to parodies in Mad Magazine and other publications (including the infamous Goodman Goes Playboy parody) and crossover appearances, while i created a cameo thread.  Then, the purge came, and now that we're getting things slowly back together, might as well merge all the threads into another all-in-one super thread!


This thread will talk about parodies (mainstream and underground), crossovers (official and unofficial) and cameos (Simpsons cameos, MLP cameos, etc) that were discussed in separate threads before the server crashed.  Enjoy!

Haven't you heard about the TV pilot Archie parody called Riverdale?  From the sounds of it, there should be some hilarious satirical stuff in there, like Miss Grundy turning out to be a hot babe and Archie having an affair with her, Betty being on medication for depression, all sorts of wacky stuff. It sounds like this is going to make the MAD parodies look pretty tame by comparison.

Lots of parodies in The Mighty Archie Art Players stories from Laugh and of course TV Laugh Out. The Archie series in the 2010s did a lot of parodies too i.e. the Jersey Shore.

Here's GCD's listing. You may have some of the others. That would make a great digital exclusive collection.

The Mighty Archie Art Players look like it's something that was started in the Laugh series. I haven't been through them all but it looks like it's in every issue. I'll continue to add them. I'm missing issue #17 though.

Cool. Have you identified the FIRST Mighty Archie Art Players story?  I think the LAST one may have been the FCBD issue from 2009.
The earliest one I could find is in REGGIE AND ME #68, Jan. 1974, "Gone With the Breeze" (a 14 page parody of Gone With the Wind).

The first one is probably that one from Reggie though I suppose they could've put one in TV Laugh Out or somewhere else that would've been earlier. I haven't been through all of TV Laugh Out. The Cleopatra one is from a Laugh issue vol 2.

Could it have been in LAUGH earlier than 1974? I mean the first volume, not the one from 1987. Come to think of it, some of those MAAP stories are retreads, like "Marcia the Mermaid" that was in the FCBD 2009 comic. The original "Marcia the Mermaid" story was in MADHOUSE, and they just retold it to make it fit the MAAP series. I'm pretty sure there was an earlier version of Cleopatra (it might even have been the one from the early 1960s, when the Elizabeth Taylor movie came out), but I don't have both stories to compare them.

I don't have the original Laugh series. It's on my to be bought list after I move. Mainly I'm just interested in potential Josie or Sabrina. FYI I'm moving 32 boxes of comics.

Hmm. I was just thinking about it in terms of contents, and even though Volume 2 of LAUGH came out immediately following #400 of Volume 1, in some ways the 2nd volume seems more like a replacement for Archie's T.V. LAUGH-OUT, since they both had Archie, Sabrina, and Josie stories. I've only read a few issues of Volume 1 but I don't remember Sabrina or Josie being in there. Or did they move to Volume 1 of LAUGH immediately after T.V. LAUGH-OUT ended in April 1986? I'll have to try to look into this.


Okay, checking GCD I find Sabrina in Laugh 394 (but not 395), and 399. Josie in 400. The others in between aren't indexed. I should probably check issues of PEP as well, anytime after 1984 when SABRINA and JOSIE ended. It seems like the featured characters in Laugh (Volume 1) and Pep were somewhat random, apart from Archie, but Sabrina or Josie could be in any of the un-indexed ones. As opposed to T.V. LAUGH-OUT and LAUGH (Volume 2) in which the features were pretty stable. Sabrina's in PEP 382 and 411.

There's a weird crossover in a THAT WILKIN BOY story I just read, where the doorbell rings at Bingo Wilkin's house and he answers it, only to find a little girl selling Girl Scout cookies door to door, except that it's not just any little girl, it's Li'l Jinx. Not just a little blonde girl who looks like Li'l Jinx, because Bingo recognizes her and calls her by name. Now the way the story was written, the plot could have gone the same way even if the girl selling the cookies wasn't Li'l Jinx, but for whatever reason they chose to put her in this guest appearance in the story. Jinx next goes to the Smythes' house next door, and when Samson answers the door, Jinx announces that she's selling Girl Scout cookies, and asks what kinds he would like and how many? Samson is highly suspicious and says "Wait a minute! Slow down, I don't like a fast pitchman!" Li'l Jinx points out that she's not a man, she's just a little girl selling Girl Scout cookies, and then Samson, eyeing her narrowly, demands "Maybe. So YOU say. Do you have any identification papers or PROOF of who you claim to be?"


It's a small part in the story and Jinx only appears on the first 3 or 4 pages, I think. Still it was a surprise to see this story, because I don't think I've ever seen Jinx in any other stories outside her own, except maybe a tiny part in "Night At the Comic Shop", along with a whole bunch of other guest-stars.

Any Gone With The Wind parody that has Reggie playing Ashley and Archie playing Rhett Butler should be buried and forgotten forever.

This is a great fan art I found by one of the members on the old forum, chillableus, a Steven Universe Archie crossover.

You know, even though I have absolutely no interest in watching Riverdale, I am kind of looking forward to seeing the MAD Magazine parody of it. It just seems so ripe for satirical lampooning.
