MTV may not play music videos anymore and they may put out dreck like 'The Hills' and 'Jersey Shore' but they totally found a winner with their new show - 'Warren the Ape'.
If you remember the puppet/human show 'Greg the Bunny' which lasted for ten episodes on Fox a few years ago you will remember Warren. He was part of the kid's show 'Sweet Knuckle Junction' but as a trained thespian he felt he was above being on a children's show and it showed. A hard swearing, hard drinking and hard lovin' puppet, Warren once showed his displeasure with a new producer by peeing into her car through her open sun roof.
So in this spin-off, Warren is trying to clean up his act. Every show opens with his sessions with Dr. Drew, the famous celebrity rehab doctor. The rest of the episode finds Warren trying but failing to clean up his act.
The whole this is deliciously crude but hilariously funny. Something about this anti-Muppet brings out the giggles in me. I love how Warren seems clueless about everything and how his evil action tend to come right back to him full force. He is a loser but thinks he is better than everyone else. It's a good show.
I like that they bring back several of Warren's 'Greg the Bunny' co-stars like sweet and gentle Greg himself and Seth Green who was Greg's best friend and roomie and who hated Warren.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
