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?

Dumb and Dumber To….will it work?

I’m sure by now you’ve seen this photo, the first released from the set of Dumb and Dumber To with Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels. Oh yeah….there was also this one The question is; will the movie live up to its 1994 original? We all know and love the classic Farrelly Brother’s film in which Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne go on a cross-country adventure to return a briefcase full of money. But how many of us remember the 1995 cartoon series or the 2003 prequel Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd? Official sequels, especially 20 years after the fact have a hard time living up to the hype. Aging actors and a stubbornness against modernize its humor has often lead to the downfall of comedies such as Blues Brothers 2000, Little Fockers, and Revenge of the Nerds 2, 3 & 4…although 2 still had its moments. Let me know if you’re looking forward to the film or whether you think it’s too little, too late? Also for Nostalgia, check out this classic trailer…
