Bee And PuppyCat makes its full series debut on YouTube

Bee and Puppycat is the brainchild of Natasha Allegri, the former Adventure Time writer and artist who created the gender-swapped Fionna and Cake. It features the misadventures of Bee, a chronically unemployable and incredibly enthusiastic twenty-something, and PuppyCat, some sort of inter-dimensional being that suddenly finds himself living with Bee. The duo take on temp jobs from PuppyCat’s otherworldly employers, where they end up battling monsters with badass sword fights and an emotionally affecting story. – Rob Dean,The A.V. Club

Watch Bill Murray’s lost film from 1984

After being buried by MGM for 30 years, the 1984 film Nothing Lasts Forever has resurfaced online on YouTube in its entirety. (Well, it actually resurfaced three years ago, but there’s just so many cat videos and supercuts for people to wade through.) The film, written and directed by Saturday Night Live alum Tom Schiller, is a science-fiction comedy that concerns a young artist (Gremlins’ Zach Galligan) trying to find his voice in a bizarre alternative Manhattan ruled by the Port Authority and a mysterious cabal of tramps. […]The weird circumstances of the film’s release (or lack thereof) was covered in depth in 2005’s Nothing Lost Forever: The Films Of Tom Schiller by Michael Streeter. MGM refused to release the film in 1984, despite being invited to Cannes Film Festival twice, and has since buried it, only allowing a few screenings here and there (mostly organized by Murray and Schiller), as well as airings on German television. – Rob Dean, The A.V.
