Barbie's last name is "Roberts."

She's modeled thousands of designer fashions, lived in dozens of mansions, driven expensive hot pink cars and been to outer space (I'm not going to look it up, but I'm convinced she's been to outer space at some point). How can all that be accomplished by a "Roberts" ?

By studying hard and buying the proper outfits.

Anyway, I learned today that the part of Fred Armisen's family tree he thought hailed from Japan actually hails from Korea.

I like dogs too, but when you think about it, Chinese and Korean people eating dogs isn't different from Americans eating cow meat ("beef"), or Belgians eating horse meat.

EDIT:

“The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers.”

Socrates, 5th century BC.

There has always been this stupid idea that the current generation of children is horrendous :D

I learned that apparently Koreans start planning their futures at the age of one:
(For those who don't watch Stretch Armstrong, Nathan/"Wingspan" has a Korean VA, Steven Yeun of The Walking Dead and Voltron: Legendary Defender fame.)

The results of the elections in Brussels are quite surprising.

* Socialist party - 28.38%
* Green party - 16.81%
Liberal party - 13.87%
Communist party - 11.58% (what... :confused:)
Christian party - 9.29%
Francophone nationalists - 7.55%
Flemish nationalists - 3.7%
* "Change.Brussels" - 3.22%
Far-right Flemish nationalists - 1.61%
Islamic party - 1.6%
Nonsensical party - 0.87% ("We'll just pick a mayor at random like the lottery"!)
Far-right Francophone nationalists - 0.69%
Radical Islamic party - 0.55% :confused:
"Citoyen d'Europe" - 0.29%

*These three parties won. (together they have got 48.31% of the votes, the biggest party can always chose who they want to work together with)

I learned that a cheesy horror movie that Billy and Grim watched in one episode, The Mummy's Ghost, shares a name with a real Universal Monster movie.

I learned that the extended version of Belle's Magical World refers to the stove as, "Chef Bouche". Before this, I just thought about calling him, "Mr. Potts".

TIL that Harrison Ford was offered the role of Mike on All in the Family but turned it down. Rob Reiner got the role instead.

Today I learned Stan Lee and Elvira were really good friends. Actually, more like I had it confirmed, because I think deep down we all knew this.

You know what DOES surprise me? That there's any point in her day where Cassandra Peterson ISN'T wearing the Elvira costume.

I have another voice actor following me on Twitter, David Sobolov. He's known for many roles , including Shockwave (Transformers Prime), Gorilla Grodd (The Flash 2014, Justice League Action), Drax (Guardians Of The Galaxy), Tatsurion the Unchained (Kaijudo), and many more . This is so awesome.
Batman vs Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles shows why the standard crossover template is so overused: it works.
During Robot and Monster on Nick Jr Pluto TV, the "Catch More on Noggin" notification pops up during the intro.
Also, Sorry for the long wait....I had to be a little busy...from artwork to video viewing. Also, I think that Disney Channel right now is on a roll this year along with CN.
Well then, I was checking out Pluto TV and watched Kuu Kuu Harajuku in their Nick Jr channel....turns out they gave it a TV-Y rating instead of TV-Y7. Does all of their shows have that?
