Short Shrift Theater: Steadfast Stanley

This is one of the most heartwarming animated shorts I have seen in a while despite all of the animated corpses traipsing around. Not even the zombie apocalypse can keep a faithful dog away from his beloved master. I also loved the animation especially the scraggly lined drawings of the zombies. And Stanley is just the best cartoon doggie ever!

Scooby Doo in the Zombie Apocalypse

This photo-shoot by Jeff Zoet of Scooby and the Mystery Incorporated gang facing off against a gaggle of zombies is pretty cool. I do have an issue with Fred not sporting the neckerchief and between her massive boobs and high heels Daphne would have major issues outrunning a marauding zombie horde but oeverall this is quite snazzy.

The Zombie Headshots Supercut

The fine folks over at Screen Junkies claim to have assembled every zombie headshot ever filmed and put them all in one handy-dandy video. I think they had to have missed some because I would expect a video showing every zombie headshot would clock in at longer than 121 seconds. But that does not take away from the coolness factor of this video one bit.
