I learned recently that the Real Ghostbusters Complete Series DVD has at least one commentary by Janine's second VA, Kath Soucie, but none from Peter Venkman's second VA, Dave Coulier. Judging from Phelous' comparison between Coulier and Lorenzo Music, though, Coulier's absence from the extras doesn't sound like a big strike against the DVD.
Incidentally, my "Wish List" of bonus features for a non-existent Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes Complete Series DVD/Blu-Ray doesn't contain any interviews or commentaries with Drake Bell, whom Marvel paid to dub over all of Spider-Man's lines before those episodes aired, even though the writers already hired Josh Keaton to voice Spidey.

WHAT

"In the Melissa & Joey Halloween episode 2014, Aunt Zelda shows up and tells Melissa that she is a witch named Sabrina who had her memory wiped. At the end of the episode Mel decides to have her memory wiped again and continue her life as an oblivious mortal."

That's correct....."Melissa and Joey" was a stealth sequel to the "Sabrina" sitcom. What a cruel fate for Sabrina.
Did someone else show up in the same episode and tell Joey his real last name is Russo?

I learned that at least two shows on the CW accompanied sex scenes with non-romantic Imagine Dragons songs. One, I saw myself, another, I only read about.
Was the first one Arrow? And there have to be more than two. Every show on the air was using "Radioactive" in an episode.

The Ren & Stimpy episode "Reverend Jack" is a fictionalized dramatization of the events surrounding Nickelodeon's firing of creator John Kricfalusi from the show. It's basically the animation team raising a huge middle finger to their former show runner - depicting his mannerisms around the studio, his constant running behind schedule, and how he ranted against the show and the people still working on it after he was booted out.

As a matter of fact, the Games Animation vanity card that appeared at the end of the show from season three onwards (a picture of Stimpy dressed as a milkman) came about because of John K.'s ranting after he was fired, describing the network and the staff he was leaving behind as "milkmen" trying to squeeze as much as possible out of his creation.

I've never seen this episode. Now I want to.

I learned that at the Amazon Marketplace, the cheapest My Neighbor Totoro Fox Family Feature DVD costs almost $70. (It doesn't show the movie in widescreen or Japanese, but it does have a different English dub than that used on the Disney and GKIDS DVDs.)

The famous tagline "Don't squeeze the Charmin" comes from how people would squeeze bread loaves in the old days to see if it was fresh (aka soft), since the packaging bread was packaged in wasn't airtight because the bread would be wrapped in wax paper in cellophane. Since the bread would loose its' shape due to being squeezed too much, the sales staff would often tell people, "Don't squeeze the bread, please!"

"The Fox and the Hound (1981) was a troubled production. The original ending for the animated feature was to have the hard drinking hunter nailing Tod the fox’s lifeless pelt to the wall and then euthanizing Copper the dog with his shotgun."

whaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAATT

Also, the producer wanted to put Charo in the film.

I need my Internet back...the past week has been so boring and holidays break just started for me
At first, I thought Brian Hohlfeld working on many shows Nicole Dubuc worked on was just a coincidence . It turns out they're married. I previously thought the Paul Dini / Misty Lee marriage had the largest age gap (he was born in 1957 while she was born in 1976), but this is the one that's larger (he was born in 1957 while she was born in 1978, making 21 years). I'm not complaining, but this is surprising.
Into the Spider-Verse is definitely one of the better animated films I've seen this year. I really enjoyed its comicbooky art style and animation. I wouldn't mind a sequel.
