Blind Ferret’s server got hacked, so the HE Store is down for now. Sharksplode is still fully functional.
Adventures of the Gummi Bears was one of those 80’s shows where someone said (someone in this case being Michael Eisner), “Hey, here’s a thing kids like. Let’s make a show about it. Doesn’t matter if it’s a food or a packaging material or an intangible idea or paint samples. Just make it all alive and add magic to it!” I always appreciated the lengths cartoon producers would go in the 80’s to make a show somehow appeal more to what they perceived children were. Like with the Punky Brewster cartoon, some guy saw a successful TV show about an orphan girl and her foster father and said, “Great premise, but let’s magic that shit up a notch! Bam! She’s got a fuzzy goblin from another dimension for a pet or whatever! 80’s cartoon producer guy, you’re a GENIUS.”
I’ve stopped using Feedburner since Google has abandoned it. The old feedburner feed will continue to work, but you should resubscribe using http://hijinksensue.com/feed/.
If you used to get HE in your email inbox through Feedburner, this service seems to offer the same functionality for free.
Just plugin the HE RSS feed [http://hijinksensue.com/feed/] and your email address.
