Good night!

January 22nd, 2009 by Bill Corbett · 26 Comments

Here’s a relaxing song which I require my children to watch right before bedtime. (It is never, ever negotiable.)

Before you sleep tonight, return briefly to a time of innocence; of carefree play; of shouting, strangely emphatic young Asian men; of playground swings that refuse to obey physics.

Sweet dreams…

    Consider me indoctrinated.

    I feel violated.

    That was, for the most part*, not my intention.

    I love the clip’s introduction. But why is that guy SHOUTING AT ME!?

    And what if I don’t WANT to stamp my feet, clap my hands, or jump up high? Are there… consequences? *gulp*

    Why wouldn’t you want to stamp you FEET?! Stamping you FEET is ever so much fun.

    I don’t get it, their names are Rhyme Man, Rhymer, and Rhymie, and yet they didn’t rhyme a single goddamn thing.

    It’s obvious that Rhyme Man is actually the Puppet Master, and the children are his hellspawn minions….

    “I don’t get it, their names are Rhyme Man, Rhymer, and Rhymie, and yet they didn’t rhyme a single goddamn thing.”

    An excellent point. Perhaps a translation problem, where “rhyme” = “yell.”

    Your poor, poor, children. I hope you and your wife are setting aside a LOT of money for upcoming therapy bills…

    Hmm…I can’t see it…I’m guessing this is a good thing?

    I didn’t think it was possible to make a cartoon character soulless, but, done and done.

    Yet, still has a better plot than The Matrix.

    What the?!? Where do you find these things??

  • 12 Laura on Jan 22, 2009 at 9:43 pm

    I… hmmm…. But… huh. Yeah, though… meh.

  • 13 Kim on Jan 22, 2009 at 10:50 pm

    Now I see it…and I confirmed my assumption…not seeing it was much, much better.

    I liked TMBG’s version better.

    The tell-all book your kids are gonna write when they grow up is gonna be amazing!

  • 17 Remmie Barrow on Jan 23, 2009 at 12:39 pm

    Yes…Much more life-like than Keanu Reeves too.

  • 18 euphoriafish on Jan 23, 2009 at 1:40 pm

    But of COURSE feet rhymes with feet! There is also exactly one rhyme for the word “orange.” Ain’t no word Rhyme Man can’t rhyme!

    Perhaps he’s a super-hero who can defeat villians by gayfully rolling his R’s

    What the hell? No, really. What the hell?

    For those wondering if this guy really rhymes, check the series on youtube. However, do you really want to see more of this animated nightmare butcher the English language?
