Crossovers 42. (Imaginationland)

I've said multiple times if I could just canonize South Park's "Imaginationland", that would finish it off.

Well, I finally found the path there.

Dr. Katz (played by Jonathan Katz, so it's really him) was on "South Park".

Denis Leary was on "Dr. Katz".

Denis Leary was on "Space Ghost Coast To Coast", and as a little Easter egg joke said "Dr. Katz is my arch enemy".

Good enough for me, fuck it, it's a "Dr. Katz", "Space Ghost", crossover.

"Space Ghost", connects to "Aqua Teen Hunger Force".

"Aqua Teen Hunger Force", connects to "Robot Chicken" (Grand Master Shake played by his voice actor shows up).

"Robot Chicken", connects to "Family Guy", via "Road To The Multiverse".

"Family Guy", crossed over with "Simpsons".

"Simpsons", crossed over with "X-Files".

"X-files", crossed over in the comics with "30 Days Of Night", and "30 Days Of Night", crossed over with "Infestation 2", which included "Danger Girl", who met Batman, and then Batman has crossed over with Marvel, and from Marvel/DC you've got everybody.

And that canonizes all the characters in "Imaginationland", and here's the list of those.


And, that finally links "South Park", into the big "Simpsons", "Family Guy", trifecta.

Boom, done.

Speaking of "Aqua Teen Hunger Force," I ditched it after the mediocre movie and subsequently dreadful seasons 5 and 6, which I watched right after the movie. I'd owned the first four seasons on DVD and loved them and 5 and 6 were so unbearably unfunny, such a sudden nosedive in quality that I immediately stopped watching the show (I can't even remember if I watched volume 7; doesn't look like it, based on episode synopses.) I heard the show changed its name several times and as of a couple years ago that it was still on, at which point I registered some small surprise on the Internet that it was still going.

It's only last week that I found out it had actually ended. They aired an episode on August 23 called "The Last One Forever And Ever (For Real This Time) (We Fucking Mean It)", but that wasn't really the last episode, they then put up the REAL last episode, "The Greatest Story Ever Told," as an easter egg on their website, then aired it on August 30 with little promotion and most guides listing it as a re-run of the pilot from 15 (!!!) years ago.

I don't know if you saw it or not, but if you didn't, here it is, all 11 excruciatingly dull, unfunny minutes of it:

....oh great, I can't find the Youtube link, here's this instead if you want it:

Absolutely godawful. Stupid inane random bullshit humor, video game cartoon violence which hasn't been funny or original in years, idiotic pop culture references, meta everything, gag, gag, gag. This is what it was when I stopped watching it, too.

Begone, spawn of Satan! Geezus, I wonder if I'd even laugh at the old stuff anymore. I still have the DVDs, so I hope so!

Ugh, I don't even wanna look.

I own season 1, and that's it.

Yeah, the movie killed it for me too.

I suppose if I actually were to do some completism thing and go back and watch the rest of it, it at least wouldn't take very long since episodes are only 11 minutes, unfortunately 11 minutes for that shit is 11 minutes too long!!! I didn't laugh ONCE during seasons 5 and 6 and didn't laugh ONCE during that final episode.

You know, if I ever really felt like trashing the video game culture for rotting people's minds or whatever, it'd be because of stuff like this. The endless preoccupation with people getting blown to bits, decapitated, blasted 700 times with machine guns, chopped up, etc. really stinks of the creators' minds having been messed up playing too many video games into their 30s and 40s. GOD THAT SHIT IS NOT FUNNY.

There are also rumors that the whole "last episode" thing was a prank and they're always going to try to keep going somehow. Ugh, why God.
