Recurrent Events April 16 2016: Four Arcade Classics Coming Back To Consoles, Hanna-Barbera Cinematic Universe Plans. New Super Mario Bros. Speed Record

Welcome to your weekly source for retro pop culture news, the Recurrent Events! There were many great storylines from this past week so let's dig in!

You may not have noticed but I've been working diligently to resurrect RD80s' sister site Rad Retro Stuff so if you haven't been over there lately, check it out. I've converted the site template to mirror RD80s and also revamped the logo. I get so many deals, giveaways, and news for retro collectibles on my feed reader and Rad Retro Stuff is my way of sharing those to collectors. I also have social media feeds for Rad Retro Stuff on Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr so please take a minute to connect. Some fun giveaways are coming up very soon for Alien Day and Star Wars Day!!

Some comic book reviews will also be posted in the near future include the new Madballs and a couple guest reviews from my friend Chad E. Young from the Horror Movie BBQ!

Here are the articles posted this week on RD80s:

What can I say...I'm easily amused. This supercut of C-3PO to "Mr. Roboto" that came to me via Laughing Squid was highly entertaining to me. It could be just because of my recent Turbo Teen Supercut...
