PSA: Cheez TV will start uploading old episodes every weekday as of tomorrow
The boys are back in town.
Earlier this year a Cheez TV Facebook page popped up and started sharing old episodes of the much-loved kids morning TV show, and it tickled a lot of nostalgia bones for many of us.
It certainly did most of us in the office, who before the days of Netflix or YouTube, used to have to get up at 6am, wait for the stupid Oz Aerobics show to finish and then tuck into cartoon serials for shows like X-Men, Spider-Man: The Animated Series, Dragonball Z. Pokemon and so much more. The shows were also interspersed with variety-hour type skits from hosts Ryan Lappin and Jade Gatt, and just general shenanigans and good, clean family fun.
Since launching the page the duo have been hitting the conference and function circuit, and why the bloody hell not? We're not sure what those two bloody legends were up to in the decade-plus since the show stopped airing in 2005, but if there's ever a time to capitalise on a nostalgia-hungry population drowning in a sea of social media and media outrage, now is it.
They announced earlier today that they'll be uploading new videos from Cheez TV every weekday with help from their friend, Brendan Dando, co-host of The Simpsons podcast 'Four Finger Discount', who according to the guys, "has been converting them all to DVD and putting them in order" after Lappin found a bunch of tapes of the old episodes in his back garden.
What a bloody time to be alive!
