Blow up the outside world

For the first time, research shows that American creativity is declining. What went wrong—and how we can fix it.

Season two of Discovery Health's I'm Pregnant and… premieres on July 20 with "I'm Pregnant and…may be having a dwarf."

…or a miscarriage.

Subsequent episodes include:
» "I'm Pregnant and…a drug dealer"
» "I'm Pregnant and…a hoarder"
» "I'm Pregnant and…a nudist"
» "I'm Pregnant and…morbidly obese" and
» "I'm Pregnant and…I have OCD."

In 1997, Ren and Stimpy creator John Kricfalusi paid tribute to UFC in a Yogi Bear cartoon that he directed and animated for Cartoon Network.

When I first turned in this scene to CN, they wanted me to cut it because they thought Yogi and Ranger Smith were having "relations." I explained that, no, this was an MMA style of fighting.


In 2002, Kricfalusi pitched a UFC reality show to Spike TV – follow Tank Abbott into bars. He also wrote Ken Shamrock into a Ren and Stimpy episode as Stimpy's Dad.

For nine seasons, Degrassi: The Next Generation titled episodes after 80s songs. As the series switched to a telenovela format for its 10th season, its first without any original cast members, the writers abandoned the 80s conceit for 90s and 00s songs.
