Let's all play in the...

In my excessive summer busyness, I forgot to mention an entertaining new production at the Steve Allen Theater. Proudly billing their collection as the "worst cartoons ever," Cartoon Dump! showcases classics of a not-bygone-enough era. Typical attributes of these shorts include: ridiculous lipsync (recorded after the animation?), no lipsync (the kids in "Big World of Little Adam" speak exclusively from behind a book), frighteningly off-model characters, nonsensical storylines, artistic laziness, and general stupidity. In other words, laughs.

Cartoon Dump! is produced by's Jerry Beck and Mystery Science Theater 3000's Frank Conniff. Between the horrendous flicks, Frank and comedienne Erica Doering perform delightfully dejected sketches as "Moodsy, the Clincally Depressed Owl" and "Composte Brite," and are periodically joined by a cast of characters that includes fellow MST3Ker Joel Hodgson as "Dumpster Diver Dan."

When's the next show? October 23rd!
