Marvel vs Capcom: STUPIDITY

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.

    The Spider-Man one was so classic, I HAD to log in and comment. The best one to me has got to be, "Hey how about turning off that horn pipe?" As he's slowly being entranced in rope at 3:18. Or, "Sorry Skinhead, I'm of the old school." When being interrogated by a goateed Verne Troyer at 5:18. I don't really like Spider-Man as a character, so this was even better for me. Truthfully though, this right here is the reason your parents are so fucked up and out of touch with what their children like today. Hilary Clinton grew up with this, and I had The Amazing Spider-Man, where he ripped the heads off of robots.

    The spider man just shows how everyone was using fun drugs in the 60's
  • Innounci - February 28, 2011 4:08 a.m.

    dammit Chris, just get in the plane...
  • F4G1TR0N - February 27, 2011 8:38 p.m.

    Lol Love this man, I don't know why i find it so funny though
  • Aforextreme - February 27, 2011 1:25 a.m.

    Dammit, Chris. I love you.
  • DrCock - February 26, 2011 11:08 a.m.

    That part where spiderman gets hit over and over make me laugh so hard i felt like i was going to throw up
  • JPorFavor - February 25, 2011 10:17 p.m.

    Yes, finally everyone can suffer the horror of that Spider-man cartoon, just like I did!
  • Austin_SJ - February 25, 2011 7:43 p.m.

    Excellent, I love the street fighter clip of one fighter throwing the other as an attack.
  • Brassballs - February 25, 2011 7:28 p.m.

    The best part is definitely when Doc Oc makes troll face right before spidey gets caught in a ceiling fan. I had something like that happen with one of the toys. With a bit more broken window though. That and the several dozen other things he walked right into.
  • NelosAngelos - February 25, 2011 6:49 p.m.

  • Siion - February 25, 2011 4:42 p.m.

    These are great. >.<
  • AntistasMetroid - February 25, 2011 2:41 p.m.

    the generation of fucking idiots running this country probably watched that cartoon. coincidence? i have been defeated by bread dough as well and it did make that noise
  • jackburnt - February 25, 2011 2:28 p.m.

    IF someone could make an animated GIF of Guile listening to the chick talk about Blanka, I'd be thankful.
  • Eaxis - February 25, 2011 2:07 p.m.

    Oh man, I hope you talk about this on TALKRADAR!
  • Japanaman - February 25, 2011 2:04 p.m.

    I've seen the Street Fighter Stupidity videos before and they're epic. But Spider-Man was just full of prat-falls and stuff. How was he supposed to know he was setting off traps. Doesn't seem stupid to me. What? Does everyone think his Spider Sense should have told him? Thumbs up to Street Fighter and Meh at best to Spider-Man.
  • philipshaw - February 25, 2011 1:41 p.m.

    This made my day
  • SausageLozenge - February 25, 2011 1:15 p.m.

    Thanks for the laughs Chris. I hope you have some of that audio for the podcast. =)
  • TheElephantManchurianCandidate - February 25, 2011 12:35 p.m.

    Spiderman's fall animations were amazing! Also is spidey's head a coconut, sure sounds like it
  • TheElephantManchurianCandidate - February 25, 2011 12:23 p.m.

    I love the music behind YES! YES! it sounds like flacid midi trumpets
  • jmcgrotty - February 25, 2011 8:39 a.m.

    The Spider-Man one was OK, but the Street Fighter one needs to be immediately purged from the internet and never again be spoken of.
