While the John Hughes comedy Ferris Bueller’s Day Off may be a classic, it’s hardly worthy of getting a video game adaptation. However, that hasn’t stopped the folks at CineFix from giving the comedy starring Matthew Broderick the 8-Bit Cinema treatment, turning the high school hooky shenanigans into an old school video game.

And now one more has been added to the pile, but this one is bound to be rather different from any that have come before it. Humbug is a contemporary retelling of the classic tale set up at Universal Pictures that will have Ice Cube in the lead role as a wealthy real estate mogul shown a path to redemption by the aforementioned trio of ghosts.

Mr. Show With Bob and David was a terrific sketch comedy show that flew slightly under the radar when it originally aired from 1995 to 1998, thanks to the fact that it was on HBO well before the “peak TV” era had begun, before everyone knew all about new HBO shows months in advance of their premiere. The show starred David Cross and Bob Odenkirk in a mixture of live on stage bits and pre-taped sketches,
