We all know about the lewd sexual behaviors of guys like Moe Szyslak and Glenn Quagmire. But what about the animated perverts who are a little better at masking their dangerous erotic appetites? Check out our list of the 7 cartoon characters you’re most likely to find on the Sex Offender Registry after the jump.
Squidbillies Volume 4 releases on DVD tomorrow, June 21st. The disc features 10 episodes and various bonus materials. One of the reasons Squidbillies has made it 5 seasons (with the sixth set to premiere September 11th) is Early Cuyler, the rowdy racist with a penchant for boozin', muddin', shootin', and general mischief-makin'. He's also got a kick-ass collection of trucker hats that put 30 Rock's Judah Friedlander to shame. Check 'em out after the jump.
Last week's episode of South Park celebrated Stan's 10th birthday, which is a rarity for cartoon shows. Most refuse to acknowledge their characters' ages. SP's been on since '97 so if Stan were 8 in that year, he'd be around 22 now. The producers of the Harry Potter franchise frantically try to wrap up the series before everyone got boobs and balls. Two and a Half Men will soon Be Three Men (which sounds creepy without "and a Baby" after it). Even though cartoon characters never appear to age, let's take a look at how old they WOULD be if they did after the jump.
Voice acting is a gift but unfortunately, the average TV viewer doesn't have a clue who voices their most beloved characters nor do they care. While most voice actors quietly cash their checks in anonymity there's one who you recognize the instant you hear him chime in: H. Jon Benjamin. He has a new travel/comedy/man-on-the-street show premiering tonight on Comedy Central called Jon Benjamin Has a Van. To honor his pipes, we're taking a look at 10 of the funniest characters he's ever voiced. Check out our list after the jump!
You may not have noticed it when you were younger, but many of the cartoons you watched contained drug and marijuana themes. You also may not have noticed this when you were older, but that's because you were high. Check out our list of cartoons that were fun to watch then and even more fun to watch now for a totally different reason after the jump.
Twenty-four years ago today, a crudely drawn animated sitcom about a dysfunctional family with yellow skin made its debut appearance on the Tracey Ullman Show and took an unsuspecting nation by storm - appearing on t-shirts, fanny packs and other junk around the globe! Because of this momentous occasion, we couldn't help but think about the humble - and low-budget - beginnings of some of our other favorite animated sitcoms. Take an awkward trip down memory lane with COED's list of rarely seen cartoon sitcom pilots after the jump!
C. Martin Croker used to voice both Zorak and Moltar on the 90's animated parody talk show, Space Ghost Coast to Coast. COED was really interested in what he was up to, what future animated shows he may be working on, where George Lowe is today (Space Ghost's voice over actor) and whether or not he enjoys showering with his helmet on. Please make sure you catch Croker at the Big Apple Comic Con hosted by Wizard World this May. For now, check out our interview, which contains clips from the show and a very provocative f***, marry, kill featuring Harley Quinn, Gravity Girl, and Wonder Woman after the jump!
The 80s were the golden age of Saturday morning programming. Originality was at its peak, and animation studios were eager to produce the latest and greatest cartoon series to entertain the young masses (and promote the accompanying toy line). Some studios turned to Hollywood's brawny heavy hitters for that extra touch of awesome! Which action icons loaned their larger than life personalities to the world of animation? Find out in COED's list of 5 tough guys that had cartoon shows after the jump!

There's a damn good reason why no one at Fox Broadcasting has ever given the thumbs up to a live action version of The Simpsons that stayed true to the anatomy of the characters- it's scientifically impossible and the amount of nightmares such a thing would deliver is inconceivable... but a Mexican sketch-comedy program has defied nature and opened up a Pandora's Box upon an unsuspecting audience. This is what happens when you accidentally hit "SAP" on your television remote while watching The Simpsons on LSD! I don't know what's more frightening: the doll-like, lifeless stare of their buggy eyes or seeing a man painted yellow dressed as Marge struggling to walk in a dress. Watch this video monstrosity for yourself and pray something like this never happens to Futurama!

Seeing a full-length computer-animated movie 15 or so years ago was a rare thing indeed - if not a real treat for moviegoers - since not many studios had the budget or access to the utilities that made such animation possible. But sadly, nowadays it seems that the market is flooded by a sh*tstorm of crappy animated films. Quantity over quality is the name of the game in this business and just about anybody with a lackluster idea can stake their claim in the mediocrity-ridden world of computer animation - and that means you! Read COED's guide to creating a crappy computer-animated film and avoid a straight-to-DVD release all together!
You know a television network devoted entirely to cartoons has just scraped the bottom of the idea barrel when they decide to re-imagine a classic cartoon from the golden age of animation - the rip roarin' 80s! With the veritable trash on Cartoon Network such as Dude, What Would Happen?, Total Drama World Tour and Tower Prep, watching an all-new Thundercats series is comparable to finding a diamond in a pile of horse sh*t. With the show's premiere drawing ever closer, fans wonder which secondary characters will get a 2011 overhaul, and which ones will be relegated to the pits of obscurity. Check out our list of classic Thundercats characters we'd love to see make a triumphant return after the jump!

Geeks and nerds are a somewhat skittish lot that tend to stay away from places replete with loud noises, rowdiness and general human contact. That's not to say the most famous worlds and universes of geekdom deprive themselves of a watering hole to unwind and drink their troubles away. Get ready to travel to galaxies far, far away to some of the greatest bars many of our favorite characters call their home away from home!
We've all seen the dirty little in-jokes that Disney inserts into their cartoons. Some animated films, however, are more blatant about their adult humor or too oblivious to realize the alienation of their young audience. In that respect, there are plenty of animated films that fell victim to either bad response, production issues or just general corporate brew-ha-ha. Here are just a few of those animated films that never saw the light of day on home video (at least, not legally). See which cartoon movies made the list after the jump.
There was once a time when animated sitcoms were all the rage in the wake of shows like The Simpsons and King of the Hill. It seemed like every network threw their hat into the ring at some point. However, many of these shows were either mega ratings bombs or were canned for not pulling in Simpsons-esque numbers. As a result, these series were canceled after their first season, several before their entire run had finished. These are a few of the unlucky ones that never found their place on network television, though most of them enjoy relatively decent success on cable and DVD. See our top 8 picks after the jump!
2K Studios released NBA 2K11 with Michael "Air" Jordan gracing the cover last Tuesday. In honor of His Airness' return to the (virtual) court, it's only fitting to daydream about other icons--fictional and real--I'd like to see be "like Mike" and make a return to popular culture via video games. After all, legends never die. Note: Bagger Vance not included.
COED sat down with Oscar nominated animator Bill Plympton at his studios right down the hall from us here in New York City to discuss working with Kanye West, Weird Al Yankovic, a peckerneck poet, and Sarah Silverman. His new feature length film, Idiots and Angels, comes out at the IFC Center in NYC today.
