No, this isn’t some long-lost Hanna-Barbera/Superfriends crossover/spin-off from the ’70s. Instead, this is a divinely insane animated fan video found by Comics Alliance‘s Chris Sims, which has to be seen to be believed (and even then, you’re going to have some difficulty believing it). Sims details some of the video’s most insane aspects here — including my favorite, the fact that it’s called “Race for the Cure” when there’s no race, no cure, and nothing mentioned that could possibly even need a cure — but it’s the voice acting and sound effects that I’ll hear echoing in brain for the rest of the day, and when I close my eyes, it’ll be Scooby-Doo getting punched in the face by a ninja that I’ll see. Frankly, I am 100% okay with this.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
