Shilling and proof of my pathetic existence, all in one easy to read package!

The Great "Bill & Erin Would Like to Move Someday and Don't Want to Have to Take All of This Stuff With Them" eBay Comics & Collectibles Purge of '06 continues!

Click here to see the auctions, which include 4 different Usagi Yojimbo trades, a loose but complete Superman/Clark Kent Mego-esque figure from Hasbro, and the Palisades 2005 Convention Tour Super Grover figure (which is an awesome toy, but I just don't have the room for it). Bid early, often and honestly!



I had to have been pretty bored to think about this, but on the way to work today, I started thinking about all of the real-life people who have had cartoons (for kids and/or adults) based on them. Look, I said I was bored! Anyway, here's what I came up with:
  • The Beatles
  • The Jackson 5
  • The Harlem Globetrotters
  • Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretsky, & Bo Jackson (ProStars)
  • Rick Springfield (Mission Magic)
  • The Gary Coleman Show (though actually based on Gary's movie, The Kid With the Broken Halo, but he gets title credit, so it sort of counts)
  • Chuck Norris: Karate Komandos
  • MC Hammer (Hammerman)
  • New Kids on the Block
  • Kid 'n Play
  • Wolfman Jack (Wolf Rock Television)
  • Maculay Culkin (like Gary Coleman, the show, Wishkid, featured a character patterned after Culkin, but it made no bones about the fact that it was essentially the Culkin show)
  • Puffy AmiYumi (Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi)
  • Robert Evans (I think it was called Kid Notorious)
  • Pam Anderson (Stripperella falls under the Gary/Maculay rule, sort of)
Am I missing any? I think there may have been some sort of NASCAR-based cartoon, but I'm not sure. I know there are plenty of cartoons based off of other live-action shows, but those were based on the characters from those shows. The Brady Kids, for instance, followed the adventures of Greg, Marcia, and the rest, not Barry Williams, Maureen McCormick, et al. But yeah, that's all I can think of.

Mine is a sad existence, I know.
