    Watchmen: The Saturday Morning Cartoon

    Check out this genius throwback version of Alan Moore’s men-in-tights epic.

    rorshachcartoon.jpgAs excited as I am—and have been for over a year now—about Watchmen, I’m absolutely grateful that this thing will finally hit theaters tomorrow. Even a loving fan such as myself can only take so much pre-release hoopla. Literally every blog or movie news site I’ve visited over the last three-or-so months has posted an average of three Watchmen-related items per day, and it was beginning to make my head spin and sympathize with the comic book’s author, and known detester of this new flick, Alan Moore. As in, prepared to pick him up in my rundown ’88 Buick Le Sabre, head to Walmart, and go gun-shopping, allowing him to pick whatever firearm he desires. On my coin.

    Shit, it’s gotten to the point where I visit Nah Right and expect to see a new Max B mixtape called Got On My Diamond Watch-men, cover art featuring Max B in full Rorschach costume, which would send me into convulsions, I’m sure.

    Every now and then, however, random online digging (this time on Youtube) will reveal brilliant pieces of gold such as the following, a mock throwback Saturday morning cartoon Watchmen sendup. Welcome exceptions to the rule. It’s the genius work of a guy named Harry Partridge, and it’s magical. If you’re familiar with the comic, you’ll especially appreciate the small details.
