The Weekenders follows the lives of four tweens as they bumble through life’s many twists and turns. Sounds cliché? Well, what really set this show apart from every other show from the day (and even from today) was that each of the main characters had no limits in terms of their personality. The writers for the series weren’t afraid to make their characters as smart and “in the know” as they should be. Before The Weekenders, there were only a handful of shows out there that didn’t stray away from the basic cartoon outline of giving the characters some kind of out-of-this-world plot with which to deal with combined with some inappropriate humor. But The Weekenders merely takes the essentials found in everyday life and tells it like it is-no gimmicks, no nonsense, just the show.
Every character was witty, but not to the point of it being annoying. It’s very rare to come by a show that’s not afraid to make their kid characters talk so intelligibly, and personally, I think it should be something that every series should do. We live in a world that’s so caught up in “hiding our smarts” that it’s such a breath of fresh air to know that it doesn’t have to be that way.
One episode from the series that especially does a good job of this is episode Party Planning. The series takes the basic tween fear of the first boy/girl party and combines it with some terms that are not only clever but make you say, “that’s so true!” For example, the main characters describe the party as, not a boy/girl one, but a “clown-less one.” They also bring up the fear of LGS, or Lateral Gravity Syndrome, in which once the boy/girl party commences the boys gravitate to one side, while the girls gravitate to the other, destined to live the rest of the party on that one side of the wall, only interacting with their own gender. Sheer brilliance!
The Weekenders was such a clever show and anyone who says differently probably just doesn’t get how true and sincere it really is. (x)

VIVA LA PLUTO FUCK YOU
I’m pretty sure “Viva la Pluto fuck you” is the best sentence I’ve heard all week.
"Your dress is too short."
Thanks, the designer used your dick for inspiration.
OH MYG OD
when you re-read a book and realize you skipped over an important sentence the first time you read it
Cultural appropriation is real and can be very harmful, but Tumblr en masse has grossly misdefined it. Here are some examples of what isn’t cultural appropriation:
- Eating food from another culture
- Properly practicing a religion from another culture.
Eeyore is just one of those characters that you wanna scoop up and hug forever.
One awesome thing about Eeyore is that even though he is basically clinically depressed, he still gets invited to participate in adventures and shenanigans with all of his friends. And they never expect him to pretend to feel happy, they just love him anyway, and they never leave him behind or ask him to change.
And he does feel happy, though. He can be happy. He just doesn’t show it as much as the others do.
There was a whole episode about that - Piglet sees him sitting on a hilltop and thinks he’s sadder than usual, and does all he can to cheer him up. Nothing works and the next day he’s back on the hill, and Piglet apologizes because he thinks in trying to help, he just made him sad again and ”I don’t come here when I’m sad. I come up here because I’m happy.”
There’s just something about that…
i think it’s so neat that everyone develops their own unique handwriting even though we’re all taught to write our letters the same way really it’s so cool
