Recurrent Events 5/14/16: 'Beetlejuice 2' Latest, 'Robotech' Now On Crackle, Donkey Kong World Record Broken Again

Welcome to your weekly source for retro pop culture news, the Recurrent Events! Thanks to everyone who entered the giveaways over the past couple weeks. I'm looking to do more in the near future so stay tuned!

There are many things I'm looking forward to this summer. I got an exciting email this week and I'm hoping I'll get a chance to actually review a highly-anticipated summer product before it hits the store shelves...(yeah, it is the one you are thinking of.) Might get my boys to get in on the reviewing action too.

Here are the articles posted this week on RD80s:
