Here at The Outhouse, we make fun of comics and comic-related stuff. We do it because we love it. It's tough love. But sometimes, something is so awesome, I just can't bring myself to trash it. One of those things is this upcoming episode of Community, which will be animated in the style of the 1980s GI Joe cartoon. I like Community and I like GI Joe. On their own, I could make fun of them. But together? It's just too awesome. Annie as a Shipwreck pastiche in a cutoff shirt?! I'm going to need therapy to deal with the sexual issues created by this, but it will be worth it.
So, here's some pics, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, who I have no problem trashing. Those fucking EW douchebags.
Jeff - Wingman
Annie - TIght Ship, Britta - Buzzkill
Shirley - Three Kids
From EW's article:
How does their adventure begin? McKenna will reveal this much: “We do a typical G.I. Joe opening where G.I. Joe is battling Cobra, then something very un-G.I. Joe and something very Community happens, and it becomes this inciting incident that gets our characters in hot water in the G.I. Joe realm.”
McKenna says that while the Community team has been working overtime to craft “a loving homage to the G.I. Joe series” that will please hard-core fans of America’s daring, highly trained, special mission force, he believes that it also will prove satisfying to people less familiar with our human-freedom defenders. “At the end of a day it’s a Community episode,” he notes, “and it’s actually a significant one.”
