No school again today, but Nightwing (from "Traps and Trapezes") was ready to go anyway with his non-violent forks.

Who is the rudest animated character? Based on recent exposure to old episodes of the Simpson's "Treehouse of Horror" my sons agreed that Bart might outdo Mordecai and Rigby. They still prefer the Regular Show guys nonetheless.

Too many characters from "Dragons: Riders of Berk" squeezed onto one napkin. I am seriously considering reactivating my "one character per napkin" rule. Ansel originally asked for the entire cast of the show at once, so he was unsatisfied anyway.

The Not So Evil Dead bring fruit for Kindergarten lunch:
Zombies just never lose their charm for my sons.
They particularly enjoyed the "Grave Sights" episode of "Regular Show" where the regular characters use sports equipment to efficiently dispatch the malicious undead in a scene strangely reminiscent of "The Evil Dead"
The meeting of two sets of unfortunate TV role-models for my sons:
My kids have an inexplicable and disturbingly persistent affection for all the iterations of "Scooby Doo" The Regular Show is a more recent pleasure which make me appreciate the simplicity of the former.
Trying to imagine a meeting between the dated pseudo beatniks and the snarky contemporary slackers, I could only conjecture that Mordecai and Rigby are not buying whatever their predecessors are selling.

Assassin's Creed III: fork in place of hatchet, and fruit substituted for a blood drenched adversary.
Our 9 year old wants to be this guy from the game (rated 17 and up) for Halloween. Thankfully, the 5 year old just wanted to see him on a napkin.

Ansel requested Raccoon Mario, as well...a complete raccoon. Certainly not one of my better drawings, but he was really happy with it. At least there is nothing here to antagonize PETA, as Mario is not just wearing fur, but is completely furry.The kids dug the original image up through google, but I cannot find it now to credit the source.

Migo from Zach Giallongo's "Broxo" appearing today without a rider as per my son's specific instructions. He accepted the addition of the strawberry with relatively good humor. Unfortunately not as good a likeness of Migo, but a more convincing piece of fruit than usual.

Darwin and the Easter Bunny debate one another's plausibility perhaps...
The preview for "Rise of the Guardians" has my kids pretty excited about seeing the movie. (Successful marketing at work.) The large, sarcastic and slightly threatening bunny is definitely a highlight. Almost as good as commando guinea pigs.

Mad Mod from "Teen Titans": the kindergarteners needed another bad guy to pretend to beat up at recess. (I'm pretty sure they are missing the "Clockwork Orange" reference from the original show, however)

Teen Titans' Slade: Ansel needed an appropriate bad guy to battle with his friends at recess. I didn't think it was one of my better efforts, but I got an actual nod of approval this morning.
