It’s been almost exactly six years since the day comedian Robin Williams died. Last month, he would have celebrated his 69th birthday, and you just know he would have had some kind of raunchy joke to make about it.

There was a time when tons of movies from the 1980s and 1990s were given their own animated series. Beetlejuice, Back to the Future, Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Ghostbusters, Dumb & Dumber, Police Academy, RoboCop, The Mask, and many more all got their own shows. But there’s one staple film franchise that never got its due diligence as a cartoon: Friday the 13th.
Artist Mike Chiechi, AKA Frank’s Kid, has created the opening credits sequence for a Saturday morning cartoon adaptation of Friday the 13th called Jason and Friends. Taking a cue from the likes of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?, Josie and the Pussycats, and many other cartoons featuring an ensemble of characters, this series finds Jason on a series of adventures with the Camp Crystal counselors he can’t seem to stop killing. There’s also an adorable dog with a hockey mask and the floating severed head of Jason’s mother. It’s for kids! Read More »
