TV's 10 Most Fabulous Classic Cartoon Chicks Ever

15 May 2012 1:16 PM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

I bet you and I both had the same favorite gay cartoon character growing up: no one. Because there were none.

You could pretend that He-Man was a roving homosexual with West Hollywood-primed muscles, but he wasn't gay. And that didn't matter, because young homos who loved cartoons simply relied on awesome animated ladies for edification. The ladies took charge, looked fab, represented our bursting drive and self-possession, and sometimes even solved crimes. I've picked the ten most fabulous lady cartoons ever with one stipulation: Everyone on this list first hit the small screen before 2000. We're going for "classics" here, not total comprehension. (I'd be including ladies from Archer and Venture Bros., in that case.)

Is there any doubt that Valerie made Josie and the Pussycats the supergroup they are? She handled two tambourines at once, bopped harder than her bandmates, and swayed like »

15 Twitter Users Worth Following, From Absurd Actresses to Great Gays

10 May 2012 1:10 PM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

I always roll my eyes when people claim Twitter is a meritocracy. Sure, tweeters with consistently funny tweets tend to win followers faster, but more often than not, Twitter follower counts are about connections, not content. Today I'm pointing you to 15 of the hilarious, interesting, and sometimes mystifying celebrity accounts that I find myself thinking about most. (I hope to more of these Twitter roll calls in the future -- you shouldn't only be following Ashton Kutcher and his cronies!) We'll start with the nuttiest dame in Oscar history; she has under 3,100 followers!

Faye Dunaway

Everything Faye Dunaway tweets is an unsettling riddle. Get into her game.

I don't like to skip steps.

I'm mad at this gay Harvard alum for deleting a hilarious tweet about Billie Jean King and the Kentucky Derby, but he's a regularly droll fix.

Snuffed Out: TV Series That Were Gone Too Soon

3 May 2012 8:04 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

The fate of Gcb, one of our favorite new shows, will be decided in the next few weeks, and right now, there's a 50/50 chance it'll survive. If it does get canceled, at least it'll instantly become a member of what we'll call the Arrested Development/Freaks & Geeks/Firefly club. Shows that were canceled before their time, and have gained cult status since they left the airwaves.

All of those programs have rabid enthusiastic followers, and in the case of Firefly and Arrested Development, that fan enthusiasm has directly led to big screen resurrections.

We're hoping Gcb gets a renewal, but while we wait, let's take a look at a few other shows throughout the years that were unfairly snuffed out, and picture ... what might have been.

Pushing Daisies

ABC (October 3, 2007 – June 13, 2009)
