Have you all noticed that things these days are going Retro?
You know like Teletoon showing Spiderman, Bugs Bunny, and Rocket Robin Hood.
Rocket Robin Hood, quite the show; it reminds you every episode just who everyone is.
Do I really need to know about Friar Tuck and Little John every episode?
It’s not Nottingham, it’s N.O.T.T. National Outer space Terrestrial Territories.
Ok, National means it’s a country
Outer space means the Universe
Terrestrial means Earth
Territories means Canada.
You guessed it. Canadian television.
Then you have Retro cars, like the Bug, Beetle, Punch buggy.
OK, it’s a Volkswagen, which looks like a Volkswagen.
The Mini looks like a Mini
The Mustang and T-Bird look like the old Mustang and T-Birds
Then you have Chevy
Let’s make the Impala with 4 taillights instead of the 6 it’s always had since 1958.
Hello, 4 Taillights is a Belair, not an Impala.
Those people at General Motors need to watch Rocket Robin Hood.
Then you have the Retro movies
Starsky & Hutch, cool cop drama, becomes lame comedy, with classic car.
If you’re going to do a car movie comedy, do the Dukes of Hazzard!
Or Knight Rider, with the K.I.T.T. Knight Industries Two Thousand
Did they watch Rocket Robin Hood?
