Someone found footage of By The Way, a lost Nickelodeon show from 1979. I'll be doing an updated Nick Knacks on it soon, but in the meantime, enjoy it in all its late-70s chromakey glory.

This makes me wonder if masters for By The Way -- in the form that it aired -- actually exist. This looks like they only filmed the original material and put in the shorts randomly per day. That's only a theory though.

Today a trailer for Stranger Things Season 3 appeared that used a "clip" from Dick Clark's Rockin' Eve 1985. I happen to actually have that airing, and the actual last minute is completely different. The Stranger Things version doesn't have Lily Tomlin, for one thing:

That's interesting. Must be an alternate master. Or they didn't use the 1985 version at all and instead used a different year's Rockin' Eve. That's what it looks like to me.

Technically not YouTube, but worth posting here: Matt found the ad where N*SYNC does the PokeRap and then Ash captures them in a ball.


The tweet went viral because a ton of people claim to not remember it -- which is bunk; if you see something like this you NEVER forget it.

I didn't look at the link. But, I can assure you that it WAS on YouTube. I've had the file on my computer since 2010. People didn't remember it, because it aired only once.

Went in search of DuMont TV shows on YouTube. Found Col. Flack. I think this would work great as a series even now. This episode has starpower even, it has a (young) Jack Klugman playing the role of Sedgewick.

none of your business
Say hello to Wilkins and Wontkins, two early creations of Muppet man Jim Henson.



From 1957 until 1961, these two characters warned viewers of the dangers of drinking off-brand coffee, particularly any brand that wasn't Wilkins coffee (although they were used in commercials for other products). The consequences usually involved explosions, gunfire, electrocution, head trauma, and other forms of puppet violence audiences would see in variety show form twenty years later.

According to TVTropes, Henson wasn't a coffee drinker, so it was easy for him to think of ways to punish Wontkins for not drinking the coffee he was advertising - all he had to do was to think along the lines of what it would take for someone like him to drink a cup of coffee. The ads also give a sort of dark, twisted take on the number one goal of advertising - their message wasn't so much "drink Wilkins coffee because it tastes good" as it was "drink Wilkins coffee...or else!"
Care for a cup of Wilkins coffee?

Not a YouTube video, but still deserves to be put here. The Dallas Stars more than made up for the Halftime debacle by playing a modified version of Sweet Victory at a recent game:

Happy Father's Day to all dads out there (including my own)!
Homestar Runner was trending yesterday and I didn't notice. Is the series all up ons again?
Amphibia looks pretty deece so far. The premise is like the isekai anime genre, except the main protagonist isn't stuck in a typical fantasy RPG world that most isekai anime take place in.
