Thread: Man vs. Cartoon

    Man vs. Cartoon

    I caught this show this weekend. I forget what channel it's on [wait for it... searching... ], or I just found out it's on truTV (what used to be Court TV, right?). They take (so far the episodes I've seen are only this one; there could be other cartoons later) clips from the Road Runner/Wile E. Coyote cartoons and try to duplicate the Acme products schemes WEC tries to use to catch/kill RR. It's pretty good, and they've been fairly successful in matching the contraptions. Check it out!

    Man vs Food is much better. Wednesday nights at 10 on the Travel Channel I believe.

    They should do Man vs Silverhawks, where someone makes a moronic costume and flies into space without a mask.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    Wait, I've heard this in a George Carlin routine...we crucify one rich white middle class banker (Political party dropped) on halftime of Monday night football to pay off the national debt...

    George Carlin cared enough about Silverhawks to use them in a routine?

    Man vs GIJoe: a guy runs into the middle of a raging firefight dressed in a bright red football jersey to test whether or not he'll get shot.

    Depends on who's shooting/gets shot first: Big Lob or Bazooka.

    A "rich middle class banker"? Which one is it?
    "To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence… When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up." - C.S. Lewis

    You've all ruined my thread! Ruined, I tells ya! :shakeyerfistharderboy:

    Really, on the program, they build the contraptions Wile E. uses (dropping an anvil from a balloon, putting a grenade in a mini propeller plane, rocket rollerskates, etc.), to see if they will work in "real life." It's facinating.

    Now, back to your Man vs. [insert cartoon here] tomfoolery...

    Here be the website:

    My cable provider doesn't offer Trutv, so I be out of luck.
