In case you’re not familiar with theswitcher, he might very well be my favorite Youtuber (if that’s even a term) on the entire interweb. Unfortunately, the Google Gods have seen fit to suspend his account and the fate of his “Retarded Cartoon Flophouse” lies in limbo…
However, he’s allowed us to repost them here the time being, and we couldn’t be more excited. If you’re not familiar with theswitcher’s work in the exciting field of Stupidity, it’s basically a mash-up of the most moronic animated moments gaming has ever produced, and they consistently deliver genuine belly laughs at an alarming rate of about once every seven seconds.
First up is the horrendous “Street Fighter” cartoon show that aired on the USA Network between 1995 and 1997. Capcom’s road pugilists have been done all manner of injustice once they’ve stepped outside of games… but nothing - not Chris Klein, nor JCVD - have prepared you for anything this uproariously goddamned silly.
Above: So much to love/hate
In case you’ve ever wondered where we got those awful Guile, Bison, and “Ambassador Blanka” clips on TalkRadar, the video above is your answer. Speaking of our filthy, stupid podcast, we had Capcom’s Seth Killian on last week to talk Marvel vs Capcom 3. Having bombarded him with clips from Street Fighter Stupidity in the past, we thought it was only fair to showcase some audio from the Marvel side of awfulness given the occasion, and a few of those came straight from this here video, The Amazing Fails of Spider-Man!
When it comes disgracing beloved characters, turns out the 1967 Spider-man TV show fares a billion times worse than even Street Fighter. Evidently, drawing Spidey doing anything remotely heroic was either too much to ask of the animators or not within the budget (there was a war going on, kids) so Marvel’s most popular character had to settle for being beaten only by objects that emitted Hanna-Barbera sounds. Repeatedly.
Hope you guys dig these. They just so happen to reduce us to tears of laughter on a regular basis, so we’re pretty proud to provide theswitcher with a home for his stupidity. Let us know what you think below.
