TV: I was happy enough knowing that BBC America would be broadcasting the Doctor Who Christmas Special the same day as the regular BBC (you know, on Christmas), but they've gone and topped my jolly feelings with a new image perfect for my desktop. [MTV Splash Page]

Robots: As an Atomic Robo fan, the story of a Tony Sale's 60-year-old scrap metal robot, George, being dusted off after 45 years and hobbling around unfettered (after a few minor upgrades) warms my circuits. [Neatorama]

Movies: The Wolverine director Darren Aronofsky is calling the film "...a standalone piece that has nothing to do with anything in the whole franchise or in that universe." After X3 and X-Men Origins: Wolverine, I can live with that. [Blastr]

Video: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans of all stripes should hope that 3-year-old Zach still loves the TMNT when he grows up. At this rate he'll probably work for NASA or something, though. [Great White Snark]

Threads: It may be bigger on the inside, but the Tardis' doorway has its limits. If only Tee Fury had kept Ian Leino's "Who's Who" up a few days longer! [The Daily What]

Gaming: Fluidity, a wonderfully odd upcoming game that tasks players with navigating water through comic book panels, now has a firm release date. Players can check it out on Dec. 6 for $12 in the WiiWare store. [MTV Multiplayer]

Toys: Mega Man may be a fighting robot, but as demonstrated by customizer kodykoala's cross section action figure, deep down he's got a heart of steel just like all of us. [Super Punch]

Insanity: I always (try to) forget about the short-lived Hanna-Barbera Thing cartoon where instead of being part of the Fantastic Four, he's just some bellbottomed teen with magic rings. Leave it to a Topless Robot List of transformations to bring it all back to the surface, though. [Topless Robot]

Trailers: The new trailer for Mars Needs Moms, based on Berkeley Breathed's illustrated children's book, is up on Yahoo. Looks nice, but performance capture just plain gives me the willies. [The Daily What]
