Early Cuyler is the patriarch of the family on Squidbillies. He's a tough buy, even beating cancer caused by asbestos poisoning. It's no surprise, then, that he sports a tough personality and has a mouth filthier than the Georgia coast after an oil spill. But his ballcaps say it all with slogans and philosophies Early can stand by. Here is my list of the funniest Early Cuyler ballcaps.

Classic cartoon fans fondly remember Rocky and His Friends, which included Peabody's Improbable History, an animated short that starred a brilliant dog and his boy as they traveled through time. Mr. Peabody and Sherman is out in theaters today, putting that titular pair in the middle of a feature film that's all about traveling through history. But since the '50s and '60s, animation has changed considerably.

Other video games based on South Park have been released in the past, most of which were disasters. (Remember Chef's Luv Shack? I try not to.)

Fans of the series will be overjoyed with the story, but serious gamers might find the gameplay lacking.

When moving pictures became popular entertainment, artists began experimenting with animation. Most of our favorite classic cartoon characters were born during that early animation boom, when animated shorts preceded feature films. By the '40s and '50s animators were churning out cartoons in color. United Productions of America was one of the most successful production companies. Learn more about UPA and its classic cartoons, like Mr. Magoo.

I am not a fan of Adventure Time, for which I have received many comments telling me I don't know what I'm talking about. However, there are apparently thousands, if not hundreds, of fans for Adventure Time walking this planet, according to a recent NPR article. Whenever I meet one, that person more often than not falls into a certain demographic (tween years, says "sick" and "LOL" a lot). To them I say, "Live and let live." By which I really mean, "Please step away from me now and take your Red Bull with you." Read my full review of Adventure Time.
