10 King of the Hill GIFs that will make you miss the show.

You don’t see it on TV much anymore, but I think it’s safe to say that King of the Hill was one of the better cartoon sitcoms of the 90s/2000s. Created by Mike Judge (Beavis and Butthead), the show was all about the Hill family. The father, Hank, who was reminiscent of Tom Anderson from Beavis and Butthead, was the show’s star for the first few seasons, until his son, Bobby, took the lead and proved to be the most interesting character.   The show lasted for 13 seasons and was a big hit for many years on Fox. I think it’s worth bringing back to reruns much like The Simpsons and Family Guy , who are on almost every night on multiple channels. Till then, here are 10 GIFs to bring back some fond memories.

How Old Would Cartoon Characters Be Today?

It’s hard to believe that Spongebob Squarepants would be 28 years old, but it’s true. Thanks to BuzzFeed for bringing this to life last year, but damn, some of my childhood favorites are getting really old. DARIA WOULD BE 32 DOUG WOULD BE 34 ARNOLD WOULD BE 27 TOMMY PICKLES WOULD BE 23 GEORGE JETSON WOULD BE DEAD…I MEAN 92 AND DAUGHTER JUDY WOULD BE 67 SAILOR MOON WOULD BE 37 PENNY FROM INSPECTOR GADGET WOULD BE 41

Dumb and Dumber…the animated series

There is a lot of hype over the third (yes, third) Dumber and Dumber feature film: Dumb and Dumber To. Oh, did you forget about Dumb and Dumberer? We wish we did… We here at The Nostalgia Blog are pretty excited for the new release and to see how Jim Carey and Jeff Daniels reprise their famed 90s roles. In doing a little YouTubing of Dumb and Dumber we came across a little gem that we didn’t even know existed….Dumb and Dumber The Animated Series. This ABC, Hanna-Barbera-produced show debuted in 1995 and was cancelled after it’s first season. After watching a clip, I was surprised to see/hear that Jim Carey did the voice of Lloyd Christmas, until I researched the show to find out that the voice was actually done by Matt Frewer. Matt is most known as the 80s cult hit character Max Headroom. A character that many people claim to have inspired Jim Carey mannerisms, Cool hun? What do you think Jim Carey = Max Headroom ripoff?
