Its Time–Again–For Animaniacs 11ish Best Original Segments

first_imgLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Stay on target Well, helloooooo Warners: Hulu recently announced the return of Yakko, Wakko, and Dot in a reboot of the iconic cartoon franchise Animaniacs.New episodes of the two-season series are scheduled to begin streaming in 2020 (because we can’t have nice things right now).Helmed by executive producer Steven Spielberg, the project will become the first Hulu original for families; it joins the Hulu Kids library alongside other nostalgia-inducing shows like Curious George, The Powerpuff Girls, Doozers, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.“I am pleased and proud that Animaniacs will have a home at Hulu,” Spielberg, currently making the rounds with Tom Hanks/Meryl Streep vehicle The Post, said in a statement. “We look to bring new audiences and longtime fans into this wild world of Yakko, Wakko, and Dot.”Indisputably popular in the mid-to-late-1990s (i.e. my childhood), Animaniacs was bursting at the seams with off-the-wall characters, ongoing plots for world domination, and veiled innuendos—all of which will return with the new series.In the meantime, fans old and new can relive the good ol’ days exclusively on Hulu, now streaming all 99 episodes of the first-run Animaniacs, as well as Pinky and the Brain and the subsequent Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain. Plus, the cherry on top of this delicious animated cake: the complete Tiny Toon Adventures! Those are the facts!To celebrate the impending reinstatement of the Warner brothers—and the Warner sister—check out 10 of the best original Animaniacs segments (as painstakingly narrowed down by me), plus one never-aired sketch I would have loved to see.Good Idea/Bad IdeaEven the wise King Solomon surely had some bad ideas.This recurring segment, first featured in Animaniacs episode 17, highlights the bright—and, conversely, dull—ideas of Mr. Skullhead, as narrated by Tom Bodett. The skeletal character originated on Tiny Tunes Adventures, where he was created by the overly affectionate Elmyra Duff, based on the gerbil skull in her bow.Dot’s Poetry CornerI’m actually surprised my friends and I didn’t walk around reciting Dot’s cunning interpretations of age-old nursery rhymes and classic poems.“Jack Sprat could eat no fat. So he became macrobiotic and a giant pain in the neck.”Chicken BooChicken Boo, what’s the matter with you? You don’t act like the other chickens do; you wear a disguise to look like human guys. But you’re not a man, you’re a Chicken Boo.Whether dressed as Mikhail Baryshnikov, Davy Crockett, Forrest Gump, Santa Claus, or a pizza delivery driver, Chicken Boo excels at being human. Until he doesn’t. Inevitably, the character’s disguise fails, that one naysayer returns to gloat (“I told you that guy was a chicken!”), and Boo is shunned (or even run out of town).Wheel of MoralityAnd the moral of today’s story is…Often used near the end of an episode that was short on time, this segment was created to satirize the Federal Communication Commission’s requirement of adding moral and educational value to children’s programming. (Clearly a post Ren & Stimpy decision.)Pinky & The Brain … and LarryPinky and the Brain try to take over the world … with a new mouse.This Three Stooges parody never fails to make me laugh. Voiced by Larry Fine impersonator Billy West, middle-mouse Larry is worked into the routines and dialogue, but fails to contribute to the plan. Eventually fed up with his rodent counterparts, Larry changes his name to Art (as in Garfunkel) and storms off to become a singer. He is replaced briefly by another mouse named Zeppo.Les MiseranimalsThere’s nothing I like better than a good musical spoof. And Schönberg’s 19th century tale of a peasant-cum-wealthy mayor swept into a French revolution is just asking to be lampooned. In this case, Rita and Runt star in a clever sung-through version of Les Misérables (with a number of Sweeney Todd references thrown in for good measure).Do you hear the poodles bark, barking the barks of angry mutts?Colin, the Randy Beaman KidGrowing up, my grandpa regaled us with tales of Herbie Schissel. Colin reminds me of my grandpa.Much like Herbie Schissel, Randy Beaman is no more than an invisible protagonist at the heart of Colin’s shaggy dog stories, voiced by Colin Wells, the son of writer/producer Deanna Oliver.Who’s On Stage?When Slappy and Skippy stumble into the biggest music and arts festival ever, the furry family fall into a seesawing routine of “Who’s on stage?” Patterned after the classic Abbott and Costello routine (“Who’s on first?”), Skippy tries explaining to his aunt that no, that’s not The Band, it’s Roger Daltry and The Who. You’re doing that owl thing again, Skippy.Yakko’s WorldThe first thing I think of when I hear Animaniacs is this song. Penned by Randy Rogel, the rhyming lyrics cover all (well, most) of the nations of the world—as of 1993. Yet I never managed to learn them all. (Ditto “Wakko’s America” and the 50 state capitals.)Good Night, Everybody!This phrase—a sort of precursor to “That’s what she said”—was coined by Yakko, who acted as if every Animaniacs sexual innuendo (of which there were many) would be the show’s last. So, with a kiss and a shout, that’s how the Warners would go out.InanimaniacsOK, so there’s only 10 actual segments. This is just a cheeky nod to those animations that ended up on the cutting room floor.Like Bossy Beaver, a workaholic rodent who wanted to build “the best damn dam ever,” but was always foiled by his dim-witted sidekick Doyle. Sound familiar? According to Mental Floss, Spielberg nixed the idea—based on Tiny Toons artist and director Ken Boyer—because it was too similar to those mice hell-bent on taking over the world. Con-men raccoons Nipsey and Russell were also bagged due to what the executive producer considered an overflow of comic duos on the show.center_img It’s Time for Animaniacs (the Reboot) last_img read more

Crystal Palace Zaha makes donation to female team

first_imgCrystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha has donated a substantial amount of money to support the development of the club’s amateur women’s team.Reports surfaced in the media earlier this week that the club asked each player in the women’s team to raise £250 to earn a place in the team.However, Crystal Palace have strongly denied such reports whilst praising the actions of their childhood hero, Wilfried Zaha.“Our senior squad currently consists of 21 players, all of whom are contracted to Palace Ladies and either receive a wage or are paid expenses,” the statement read, as quoted by SportsKeeda.“This is made possible by the substantial financial support we receive from Crystal Palace Football Club and our principal sponsor, Utilita Energy, who are committed supporters of the women’s game and are backing Palace Ladies for the third consecutive season.”Joel Ward, Crystal PalaceHow Joe Ward thanks his faith for his football Manuel R. Medina – September 13, 2019 Crystal Palace defender, Joel Ward, has thanked his Christian faith for helping him play football professionally and he explains why.“Our budget and business and marketing plans were clearly set out in our application to join the FA Women’s Championship; in common with many other clubs, we encourage players to seek personal sponsorship to help raise the club’s profile and build links with the business community, but it is not a condition of playing for Palace Ladies.”“All our other teams operate on an amateur basis and, as with any grassroots membership club, players pay an annual subscription fee. To help the development of our reserve team players, we have heavily subsidised their annual membership fees.”“We are delighted to announce that Wilf Zaha has contacted the club to make a substantial financial contribution to support the development of our amateur players. Everyone knows what Crystal Palace means to Wilf and he wants to give the same opportunities to the next generation of aspiring players at Palace Ladies that he enjoyed when coming up through junior teams.”“We are grateful for Wilf’s support and for the ongoing support of Crystal Palace Football Club and Utilita Energy, which enables our senior team to play in the FA Women’s Championship.”last_img read more

How to make company car schemes appealing to todays workforce

first_imgAs the needs of today’s workforce evolve, so too must the benefits offered by employers, including the provision of company car schemes.FlexibilityThere is no singular employee model that an organisation can build their benefits around. Offering company car schemes that provide a degree of flexibility where possible, can help employers to meet the varied requirements of its employees. This flexibility, which can be advantageous for both employers and their staff, extends to factors such as car type and funding methods.Richard Jessop, head of salary sacrifice at Ogilvie Fleet, says: “There’s a growing realisation that one-size-fits-all approaches [to employee benefits] aren’t supporting the changing needs of employees; they need a degree of flexibility and choice.”For employers and staff, budgeting has become ever more important, so company car schemes need be as cost-effective as possible. In turn, this can boost take-up of the schemes and increase their appeal.One way of enhancing flexibility is to offer cars as a benefit through a salary sacrifice arrangement, which could sit alongside more traditional company car schemes. Car salary sacrifice schemes tend to be popular with employees because they are straightforward to manage and cost-effective. Alison Argall, business development director at Tusker, says: “Budgets are tighter than ever before, and with car salary sacrifice schemes, all the employee has to do is add fuel, so it is fairly easy to budget monthly.”Salary sacrifice schemes can also enable employers to extend cars as a benefit to members of its workforce that may not be eligible for existing company car schemes, thereby complementing and expanding its benefits offering.Modern communicationConsidering the range of benefits available through many of today’s employee benefit packages, more may need to be done to make company car schemes stand out from the crowd. “Today’s workforce has a plethora of benefits to choose from; each employee will have a different budget and will look to maximise the number of benefits they receive to best suit their personal circumstances,” says Jessop.Strong communication strategies can be harnessed to promote company car schemes, as well as to improve employees’ understanding of what the scheme that they are being offered means for them in terms of cost and use. Connect through choiceOffering a range of cars for staff to choose from can help employers increase staff engagement with company car schemes and increase take-up. Taking employee feedback into account can enable employers to ensure that the benefits they offer to staff are both appropriate and valued.John Webb, principal consultant, Lex Autolease, says: “There’s a realisation now that employees want to have more of a say in what benefits they’re offered and how.”Because the qualities that employees look for in a car may vary from individual to individual, access to a broad choice of vehicles to suit their lifestyle is a key priority for many company car drivers. The green credentials of a car have also become a more significant factor for consideration, particularly among younger staff. Peter Eggeman, fleet consultant at Zenith Leasedrive, says: “The generation of drivers starting to take company vehicles for the first time have been brought up to be more environmentally aware.“Another factor [influencing company car schemes] is the rising popularity of ultra-low emission vehicles (ULEVs). The government has indicated that two-thirds of all newly registered ULEVs have been bought for fleet usage and that the UK is the fastest-growing European market for ULEVs,” adds Eggeman.Low-emission cars could overtake more traditional priorities for company car schemes, says Toby Poston, director of communications and external relations at the British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association (BVRLA). “Fleet managers and company car drivers tell us that tax cost and fuel efficiency are more important than driving performance and vehicle design when choosing cars. Looking ahead to 2020, they believe that sustainability and in-car connectivity will become more important selection criteria,” he adds.Indeed, more than half of employers (54%) are taking steps to make their fleets more environmentally friendly and to reduce carbon emissions, according to The Employee Benefits/Alphabet Fleet research 2015, published in July 2015.To make company car schemes appealing for today’s workforce and beyond, staying in tune with the evolving needs and priorities of employees is key. Building flexibility and choice into schemes can boost engagement, but it is also crucial that employers thoroughly communicate the scheme to their staff.Danone engages staff with company cars Danone uses communication to ensure its longstanding company car scheme remains relevant and valued by staff.In September 2015, Danone launched a salary sacrifice car scheme as a separate benefit, which is offered alongside its existing company car plan. Both schemes are provided by Leaseplan.The new scheme is available to all of Danone’s 1,300 UK employees, including its 350 dedicated car drivers.John Mayor, head of UK rewards at Danone, says: “We offer our company car scheme and salary sacrifice scheme separately because the company car scheme is in line with our global policy. The salary sacrifice scheme offers freedom of choice for a low emission, greener vehicle and the more choices we give, the better we are at attracting and retaining the best-possible staff. Our ambition is to be ahead of our competitive set in terms of total reward.”To communicate the car schemes, and to ensure staff are fully aware of what they are being offered and the potential savings to be made, the employer uses communication methods such as desk drops, posters, road shows and posts on its intranet site.Upon the launch of the car salary sacrifice arrangement, Danone ran an email communications campaign that achieved an 82% engagement rate. Need to know Putting choice and flexibility at the heart of a company car scheme can increase engagement with the benefit.Employers must be mindful of the varied requirements and priorities of its workforce.Relevant and comprehensive communication provides employees with a full understanding of company car schemes and can boost take up.center_img Viewpoint: Cost efficiency and green credentials among key drivers of change in company car schemes The biggest driver of change has been the tax system. Benefit-in-kind (BIK) tax is based on the car’s carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and the government cranks up the BIK tax rate every year. This encourages employees to choose cars emitting ever-lower levels of CO2, particularly diesels.Many employers now wish to do their bit to help the environment, so they impose their own cap on CO2 levels. Normally 120g/km is common, but this number is reducing every year as the number of new low-emission models increases. Most employees seem to accept that these arrangements are a necessary part of the government’s green agenda.Another trend is that more and more employers now allow employees to ‘trade up’; make a monthly contribution to get the company car they want or need.The BIK tax system also encourages many workers to give up a benefit that was once quite common; free, private fuel paid for by their workplace. If someone is still receiving this benefit, they should check if it is actually giving them a benefit, because they may be saving the cost of the fuel but may be paying even more than that in extra pay-as-you-earn (PAYE) and national insurance.One big change in recent years has been car salary sacrifice schemes. Employers such as these because they represent an attractive benefit of employment and help employers meet their health and safety obligations. Rather than driving business mileage in an old ‘grey fleet’ car, their employees are driving new, properly managed and maintained cars.Despite these advantages, salary sacrifice won’t replace regular company cars; it tends to be offered to employees who would not have qualified for a company car, because it is most cost-effective for smaller, cheaper cars with low CO2 emissions; cars that are not usually used for lots of business mileage.Colin Tourick is Grant Thornton professor of automotive management at the University of Buckingham Business School.last_img read more

Whole Foods CEO says plantbased meat is unhealthy

first_img $59 at eBay Now playing: Watch this: $155 at Google Express Chris Monroe/CNET Sprint 6 See It Plant-based “meats” from companies like Impossible Foods and Beyond Meat have been getting plenty of attention lately — from both fans and critics.  Impossible Foods Despite all the hype, Whole Foods’ CEO reportedly isn’t a fan of plant-based “meat.” While it may be good for the environment, John Mackey told CNBC last week, it’s not great for your health.”If you look at the ingredients, they are super highly processed foods,” Mackey, who is vegan, reportedly said. “I don’t think eating highly processed foods is healthy. I think people thrive on eating whole foods.”Beyond Meat, a plant-based meat startup, began selling its vegan chicken strips at Whole Foods in 2013. The startup went on to develop plant-based beef, and competitor Impossible Foods also created a burger that tastes like beef. The Impossible Burger is available at restaurants such as Burger King, White Castle and Red Robin.The plant-based meat craze is quickly growing. This week, Beyond Meat and Kentucky Fried Chicken said they’re teaming up to test plant-based chicken. A KFC restaurant in Atlanta was the first to offer Beyond Fried Chicken as nuggets and boneless wings. Many people have pointed out that plant-based meat, which is processed and contains fair amounts of sodium and saturated fat, isn’t as healthy as some may think. In addition, Impossible Burger and Beyond Burger have calorie counts similar to that of ground beef. Still, some nutritionists have said the burgers aren’t necessarily bad for you, despite being processed.  Tidal 3-month family subscription: $5.99 (save $54) HP Laptop 15t Value: $520 (save $780) Tags Sarah Tew/CNET I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price.

Ive always played strong women on screen

first_imgActor Parno Mitra is all set to play the lead role in a new web series on Hoichoi, titled Chupkotha 2. The murder mystery surrounds Shivangi, a journalist and a single mother who suddenly hears of the mysterious death of her old friend. Shivangi(played by Parno) and sets out to solve the case but instead encounters similar strange murders involving people known to her.

Excerpts from an interview: Also Read – Add new books to your shelf Can you tell us about your role in the new web series on Hoichoi?

I’m the hero of the series and my co-actor is this adorable five year old child who plays my daughter. What made you accept the role of Shivangi? I’ve always played strong and independent women on screen so when the role of Shivangi was offered to me, I accepted it with open arms.

the night of June 16-17 2011 She told jurors it "was not oral sex" when she briefly awoke and found her husband forcing himself into her mouth"You remember the raw emotion in her voice when she said it That’s the essence of this case" said Euren an assistant Cass County state’s attorneyDefense attorney Robert Hoy asked jurors if they would rely on Alonna Norberg’s word to make important decisions and said the state has "not one shred of physical evidence" to support her allegations"If Alonna Norberg is not credible and you do not believe what she has said the state’s case crumbles" Hoy said "There is no case It’s as simple as that"Jon Norberg 42 has pleaded not guilty to one count of gross sexual imposition a Class AA felony punishable by up to life in prison and one count of reckless endangerment a Class C felony punishable by up to five yearsIf jurors find him not guilty of one or both charges they must consider a lesser included offense under each chargeUnder the gross sexual imposition charge the lesser included offense is a Class A felony punishable by 20 years in prison It takes out the element of the charge that Alonna Norberg had serious bodily injury inflicted upon herThe lesser offense under the reckless endangerment charge is a Class A misdemeanor carrying up to one year in prison It excludes the element that Jon Norberg manifested extreme indifference to human lifeWho had the planAttorneys for both sides depicted the other’s client as scheming for their own benefitIn the case of Alonna Norberg Hoy argued that she made up the allegations against her husband to make him look bad and gain the upper hand in the divorce case she was planning Hoy said she "knew that she had some baggage" health issues and narcotics abuse that could hurt her chances in a custody battle for their three children Hoy said Alonna Norberg knew a domestic violence allegation would be the "trump card""The bottom line here is that desperate people will do desperate things" he saidAs he did throughout the trial Hoy hammered on the fact Alonna Norberg met with a divorce attorney for the first time on June 16 hours before one of the two incidents in which she says she woke up to her husband sexually assaulting her"Well coincidences do happen" Euren said addressing the issue in his closing statement "That’s all I can say about that""This isn’t coincidence by any stretch of the imagination" Hoy saidEuren said it was Jon Norberg who had a plan to drug his wife with the powerful sedative propofol and have sex with her allegedly on four occasions between Sept 1 2010 and June 20 2011"This case is not about her diagnosis or her medications or how many there were" Euren said "It’s not about the divorce It’s about Alonna Norberg being drugged with propofol and Dr Jon Norberg having sexual intercourse with her in various forms That’s the case"Sedation alertness keyEuren said Jon Norberg put his wife at risk by giving her propofol without the proper medical equipment on hand and by having sex with her while she was on the drug"When you’re engaged in sex you’re not thinking much about anything else" he saidHoy said Jon Norberg administered the drug carefully and that the sex had been mischaracterized"The idea that after your wife would feel better and perhaps her libido would return and you would engage in normal marital relations it’s not a dirty thing It’s not a bad thing It’s a good thing That’s what couples do" he saidKey issues of contention remain whether Jon Norberg meant to put his wife in a minimal level of sedation or a moderate level – the latter having stricter guidelines – and whether Alonna Norberg was unconscious at any point during her sedationHoy also recalled testimony from defense experts who said Alonna Norberg’s version of the June 16-17 incident was "simply not anatomically possible"Inconsistent statementsBoth attorneys tried to point out discrepancies in testimonyHoy noted that Alonna Norberg originally told police she had run over to a neighbor’s house on the morning of June 17 2011 to use the phone and drop off evidence of her husband’s alleged propofol use on her She later acknowledged it was in the afternoonEuren said statements by Jon Norberg that he didn’t have sex with his wife on the night of June 16-17 conflicted with his reference to oral sex that night during a recorded phone conversation between him and his wife on July 5 with police listening inHoy suggested Alonna Norberg’s behavior after the alleged June 2011 assaults – she didn’t have a rape kit conducted didn’t talk
