"Classic" animation from my 2000-2001 online series.  

Ironically enough, plush Sparky's really do exist in the world now, though you'll have to fill in the ranting and raving yourself.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Christmas Day, teabaggers hate unions, hate government workers, hate gays, hate immigrants, hate Obama, but love guns.

    There is no such thing as an off year election. Every election effects each other. We need to work as hard in 2014 as we did in 2012.

    Since we decided as a nation to obliterate Thanksgiving Day and overwhelm Halloween with Christmas shopping,  we might as well make Christmas Day just one more opportunity to get a bargain!

  •  Got a question regarding my computer... (1+ / 0-)

    Something must have automatically updated the other night and done something (yeah, i'm a real computer whiz...not!). Now when a photo is posted here on Kos, all I get is a tiny box where the picture should be. Looks like a broken link.
    But I can't figure out what is going on! I'm running chrome, but it doesn't appear to be a flash problem (where there are two flash files). Most questions/answers on the web are for people running IE.
    Can anyone help me figure it out? (videos seem to post OK, BTW).

    Thanks!

      Click on the gear on the upper right, go to 'Internet Options'. Click on the 'Advance' tab. A little over half way down is 'Show Pictures' Make sure it is checked.

      Click on the three line thing. and go down to 'Settings'. Click on settings again on the left and than advanced at the bottom. Under Privacy settings click on the Content button and make sure show images is checked.

      The other generic thing to do is clear your history.

        Tried it, but pix still won't show. I can see my profile photo, videos and banners, but every pic that is attached to a diary comes out as a little box. Frustrating!
        Appreciate the help though!

    I'll buy a stuffed Sparky when they start making them here.

    What happened to this animated series? And those other web animation series from back then?

    You had this, Mondo Mini Shows, Ice Box, Kricfalusi with Weekend Pussy Hunt and The Goddamn George Liquor Show, Zombie University which flirted with the networks, that guy with the hamsters in the microwave, and probably many others. All with high hopes and it seemed like it piddled out just didn't seem to go anywhere for very vague reasons....
