The SUNDAY FUNNIES: 'Yogi Bear''s Alternate Ending and More 'Star Wars' Posters

We also take a look at Paul Rudd as a 'test guest' for 'The Daily Show', a 'Little Tron Girl' and more.
Ahoy my MovieWeb friends. Brian Gallagher here writing to you from the tundra-like Minnesota for this week's edition of The Sunday Funnies. There's a lot to get to this week so lets get started with a big fat fail from Entertainment Tonight's coverage of The Golden Globe Awards nominations:



One of the most bizarre traditions in Hollywood is that, during awards season time, they announce the nominations for the big awards ridiculously early in the morning. It seems not everyone is paying very close attention during those wee hours of the morning, particularly someone in the Entertainment Tonight graphics department during The Golden Globe Awards nominations on December 14th. Take a look at this photo of the TV coverage taken by Our Lady of Popular Culture featuring Glee star Chris Colfer:

Yes, it is an honor to just be nominated... as long as they get your gender right.

Yogi Bear Alternate Ending - via Paul Scheer



Hilarious actor Paul Scheer (Piranha 3D, FX's The League) sent out a tweet last week about an "alternate ending" for Yogi Bear. His tweet said it was done by the real animators who worked on the movie, but the video claims that there is no connection between Yogi Bear and this video. Regardless, it's already at 2.8 million views after just a week, and you simply have to take a look at this below, which gives a nod to The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford:


Since Yogi Bear didn't fare quite so well against Tron: Legacy this weekend, I wonder how much more it would've made with this crazy ending in place? Oh well. There's always the DVD... even though this "isn't associated" with the movie...

Little Tron Girl - via Funny or Die



With Tron: Legacy hitting theaters this weekend, the fine folks at Funny or Die had to do something Tron-related and they came up with the hilarious "Little Tron Girl" video. Check it out below:


The video was written and directed by @aaron_glaser and was picked up by numerous websites throughout the week. Great job, Mr. Glaser! I'll be patiently awaiting the follow-up: Little Black Swan Girl...

New Olly Moss Mondo Posters For Star Wars - via Wired



Poster designer Olly Moss may not be a household name, but anyone that appreciates a finely-crafted one-sheet will and/or should know who he is. His latest masterpiece is a new set of three posters for Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi. These posters are so stunning I really can't say any more about them, so take a look below:

Empire Strikes Back Mondo Poster
Return of the Jedi Mondo Poster

Wired was given exclusive access to the posters last week and they will go on sale on Monday, December 20. An official on-sale announcement was said to be posted at the @MondoNews Twitter feed. The posters will cost $50 each, but they are limited editions with only 400 of each poster being produced. Click Here! for more information on the posters and hit up my Twitter account to let me know that you're getting me these posters for Christmas... Hey, it's worth a try, right?

Paul Rudd as a "Test Guest" on The Daily Show - via The Daily Show



Way back in 1999, when Paul Rudd was mainly known for Clueless, The Daily Show was starting up with their new host Jon Stewart. The first "test guest" of the show was Paul Rudd and, 11 years later, during Paul Rudd's appearance on The Daily Show last week, they played a brief clip from that test show. You will get plenty of laughs if you watch this whole video through, but if you just want to see what Paul Rudd and Jon Stewart looked like in 1999, skip ahead to the 5-minute mark in this video below:

    Sad, but in a very funny way, but this "Yogi Kill" wasn't as hilarious when Peter Griffin killed Yogi on 'Family Guy'.

    PETER: Remember what I did for that Park Ranger?

    YOGI: Hey Boo-Boo! Let's see what we got in this pacany basket

    (Peter comes out of the bushes with a knife, sneaks up behind Yogi, staps in and kills him then points at Boo-Boo)

    PETER: TELL THE OTHER BEARS WHAT YOU JUST SAW!

    BEST "YOGI KILL" EVER!
