Yes, real TV! And they may be for kids, but I foresee a large stoned teen / bleary-eyed parent market for the bizarre, often dark 'Two More Eggs.'

The Brothers Chaps created one of the Internet's most beloved and innovative early video series with Homestar Runner (which has started back up again to the delight of fans, although it doesn't seem like it will ever be their sole occupation again). Since then, however, they've mostly worked in kids' television on shows like Yo Gabba Gabba. As a childless blogger, I don't get all the hot Disney XD press releases, but even I was excited to hear about 'Two More Eggs,' their new series of animated shorts that promise to skew kids' brains the right way by exposing them to weird comedy at a young age.

Sometimes, I have no idea what goes through the minds of people who approve kids' TV. I'm not complaining, though, because it means I get to watch stuff like whatever the heck Dooblie Doo was. There's also this nutball video parodying the crappy CGI shows that have plagued children's programming ever since the soon-to-be-rebooted-in-live-action ReBoot came on in the late 90s.

I don't know what time it's on. I don't particularly care. I'm 30 and I'll be watching this on YouTube where no one can judge me.
