Take some time this week to remember your original happy hour: Saturday mornings as a kid, waking up at dawn, jumping on the couch with a bowl of chocolate cereal, turning on the ‘toons, tuning out the outside world, and working your way into a sugar hangover before noon. Join us this week for our Open Your Toys Edition, co-hosted by our good friend Slick McFavorite of the popular Open Your Toys podcast. He helps Grim and Mark celebrate all those toys we played with as kids and all those toys that we don't dare play with now, from action figures to staction figures to full on statues in lucite cases. We also chat with Susan Fairchild of Sideshow Collectibles, Pierre Kalenzaga of Mezco Toyz, and Craig Dobris of Ban Dai, plus Mark (very carefully) unboxes his new exclusive Premium Format Michael Keaton Batman from Sideshow, and Grim reviews his latest Venture Bros toy (which strangely enough is a set of bedsheets and you can get your own right here) ahead of the new Venture Bros special All This and Gargantua-2 (on Adult Swim at midnight this Monday Jan 19th), while Slick learns the true meaning of Christmas.

Beatrice Melba Hill (born October 29, 1945), best known by her stage name, Melba Moore is an American singer, actress, entertainer. She is the daughter of saxophonist Teddy Hill and R&B singer Bonnie Davis.
Melba Moore was born in 1945 in New York City, New York, to Gertrude Melba Smith (known professionally as Bonnie Davis) and Teddy Hill, and raised in Harlem, New York, until she was 9 and her divorced mother remarried jazz pianist Clement Leroy Moorman. She attended Newark Arts High School in Newark, New Jersey.Her mother, Bonnie Davis, had a No. 1 R&B hit with "Don't Stop Now", prior to Melba's birth. Although her biological father was Big Band leader and saxophonist Teddy Hill, it was her stepfather Moorman (who played on "Don't Stop Now") who became a prime influence and encouragement in Moore's musical pursuits, insisting that she learn to play the piano. When she graduated from college she worked as a music teacher, but she soon decided to pursue the spotlight. She chose her stage name by shortening her stepfather's surname from Moorman and using her middle name, "Melba".
Moore began her performing career in 1967 as Dionne in the original cast of the musical Hair along with Ronnie Dyson and Diane Keaton. Moore replaced Keaton in the role of Sheila. In 1970, she won a Tony Award for Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Musical for her portrayal of Lutiebelle in Purlie. She would not return to Broadway until 1978 when she appeared (as Marsinah) with Eartha Kitt in Timbuktu! but left the show after a few weeks and was replaced by Vanessa Shaw. Following the success of Purlie, Moore landed two big-screen film roles, released two successful albums, 1970's I Got Love and Look What You're Doing to the Man, and co-starred with actor Clifton Davis in the then-couple's own successful variety television series in 1972.
Now that the Oscar nominations are out, our team of experts will take an in-depth look at who is in and who was snubbed. Will Boyhood triumph? Is this Michael Keaton's year? What about Julianne Moore, JK Simmons, and Patricia Arquette? Should Selma have received more love. We discuss it all!
