This is the 'Dark Knight Rises'/'My Little Pony' trailer mashup we deserve, not the one we need -- VIDEO

Because nobody really needs fan videos that combine Friendship Is Magic with The Hunger Games, or The Happening, or Rock of Ages — but aren’t you glad that they exist?

In the following clip, a YouTube-savvy brony (or pegasister!) named cloverfieldmoster skillfully blends audio from the theatrical Dark Knight Rises trailer with images from The Hub’s hit series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. It shouldn’t work — but thanks to Batman Batmare stand-in Rainbow Dash’s intense gaze and the cartoon’s surprisingly epic feel, these diametric opposites actually go pretty well together. Best part: when Bane replacement Discord laughs evilly as what look like hamburgers fall from the sky.


Saddle up: You're invited to a 'My Little Pony' royal wedding -- EXCLUSIVE

Love is always in the air in Equestria, the neigh-borly realm that’s home to My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic‘s four-legged stars. But on Saturday, April 21, this animated world will celebrate a particularly momentous occasion: Winged unicorn Princess Cadance and Shining Armor, a dapper colt, are tying the knot (reins?). And we’ve got a first look at the pony-focused announcement that’ll appear in The New York Times‘ wedding section this Sunday. That’s right: The paper of record is running a notice (full disclosure: it’s really an ad) about two cartoon horses getting hitched.

Naturally, the invitations request bridle attire.

Confused? Here’s the hoof, the whole hoof, and nothing but the hoof: READ FULL STORY

Wallace and Gromit praised on the floor of Parliament. Hear hear! -- VIDEO

Place yourself, for just a moment, back in the days of the George W. Bush administration. Now imagine the head of Bush’s economic team standing before Congress and declaring that their newest budget was expanding tax breaks not just to Hollywood, but the world of videogames, pay-cable television, and animation as well — with a full-throated endorsement of Woody and Buzz Lightyear to boot.

Kinda hard to picture, isn’t it?

But that’s exactly what happened this week across the pond in Parliament — and we’ve got the footage to prove it below. READ FULL STORY

'Wallace and Gromit' take on science in new series coming out on DVD -- Exclusive VIDEO

Our favorite British inventor (ok, maybe second to Tim Berners-Lee — we couldn’t PopWatch without the Web!) and his smart but silent dog are back in a new six-part series available on DVD and Blu-ray this Tuesday, Wallace & Gromit’s World of Invention. In the series, which originally aired on BBC One, Wallace is in front of the camera, teaching about inventions that help with everything from space travel to housework — and trusty cameradog Gromit is producing behind the scenes.

'The Simpsons' meet 'Game of Thrones' in intro -- VIDEO

So, it’s settled, at this point everyone is looking forward to the return of Game of Thrones, evenThe Simpsons. During the opening credits of last night’s episode, The Simpsons paid homage to Game of Thrones in their own special way: By transforming Springfield into the kingdoms of Westeros. (Naturally, Burns would be a ruthless ruler there.) Watch as two beloved pop-culture worlds collide when The Simpsons usual couch gag transforms to look like Game of Thrones‘ high-rising opening credits, complete with sweeping theme music and all. It is, in a word, exxxxxxxxxcellent.

We all know 'Beauty and the Beast 3D' got robbed

Plenty of Oscar snubs yesterday, but perhaps most egregious is the Academy’s woefully unenlightened cold shoulder toward Best Supporting Actor Lumière. Don’t they realize that the farther they walk away from his eternal flame, the less they will be able to see? What’s it like, Oscar voters, to live inside a great big gilded castle of DARKNESS?

PBS Kids gives you a way to introduce your child to Jon Hamm: Watch!

As an aunt who’s had to sit through her fair share of Dora and Diego DVDs (great, now the Rescue Pack theme song is stuck in my head), I’m happy to give parents, aunts, and uncles who are forced to watch PBS Kids’ Martha Speaks a bit of good news: Jon Hamm, Jennifer Westfeldt, and their German shepherd mix, Cora, provide voices in Feb. 20’s two-part season 4 premiere “Cora! Cora! Cora!” (check local listings). No wonder Cora’s always hounded by paparazzi!

Martha Speaks follows the adventures of Martha, a dog whose appetite for alphabet soup gives her the power to talk. (Hey, it’s for ages 4 to 7.) In the episode, Ham Johnson (voiced by Hamm) and Kit Luntanne (voiced by Westfeldt) are actors in a traveling production of Antony and Cleopatra. Kit is upset that she’s had to leave her dog, Cora, at home, so Martha visits her at the theater to cheer her up.

Backstage, Martha meets Ham, an actor who wants to impress Kit. Together, Ham and Martha hatch a plan to reunite Kit with Cora. In part 2, Cora Encore!, confusion ensues as Martha and Ham cross paths with a troupe of circus dogs who all look exactly like Cora. Can Martha and Ham find the real Cora before she’s sent off to perform on the high wire? Or before Kit finds out about the mess they’ve made?” Drama! Watch a few clips below.   READ FULL STORY
