Bert & Ernie from Sesame Street have launched a lawsuit against an upcoming sex, drugs and violence-laden puppet-based movie called the Happytime Murders. The movie uses the tagline “No Sesame. All Street” on promotional material. The lawsuit says this tarnishes the Sesame Street brand and confuses people into thinking the two are linked. Melissa McCarthy stars in the film, slated for August release, where humans and puppets co-exist. She is given a new puppet partner in the R-rated film to try to solve a string of murders.

Party on, Dudes. It’s official: Bill and Ted’s excellent adventure is set to continue – thirty years after their first time-travel escapade. The new instalment, “Bill and Ted Face The Music”, will see Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter back as Theodore ‘Ted’ Logan and Bill S Preston Esq. However, this time, they’ll be navigating middle-age and family responsibilities. The writers of the first two films, Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon, are behind the script, while Dean Parisot is confirmed as director. So, after three decades, why are two dudes with completely normal names still causing such excitement?

Today we are continuing our series of posts on our favourite telly shows of the past. As you all know, the bears love their telly and there is nothing they love more than finding a character they can love to love… or even love to hate. The bears don’t usually go for the clean-cut, heroic types they are more likely to identify with the slackers of society, people like Frank Gallagher, Jim Royle or Homer Simpson. They like programmes which are “off the wall” although occasionally they will enjoy serious drama if it is interesting and well written. Today, we are featuring

There’s been a murder – said in my best Jim Taggart impression… or should that be, “There’s bin a murdah”? I should explain. It was the early hours of this morning when I woke up and couldn’t get back to sleep. There is nothing worse than trying to get to sleep and failing, so to take my mind off sleep, I turned the television on quietly so as not to disturb any of the sleeping bears. The BBC News Channel was telling the story of a murder case from 70 years ago aboard the cruise ship Durban Castle. Fresh evidence was casting doubt on the original conviction of a deck steward for the ghastly deed. The victim was a young actress thought to have been murdered on-board the ship but may actually have died from natural causes, it is now being claimed.

Tattoo Fixers stars Paisley, Alice, Sketch & Jay.

Here at Jammy Toast one of our favourite telly programmes is Tattoo Fixers. So you can imagine how devastated we were this week to learn that Jay is to leave the show. Some of his photo-realistic tattoos have to be seen to be believed and all we can say is that he hasn’t done too badly for someone whose art teacher told him he couldn’t even draw. Not only did he prove her wrong by moving to another class and achieving an A grade, he went on to set up his own tattoo studio at the age of 21, which inadvertently ended up catapulting him to fame on Tattoo Fixers.
