Announcing the Hulu Award for "Best Cartoon Series (non-anime)"

(Please welcome guest presenter Tamara Brooks, a regular contributor to the excellent site Zap2It)

And the Hulie goes to....



The Simpsons!








Way back in 1987, an animated family skit appeared on "The Tracey Ullman Show" on FOX. These squiggly, somewhat unconventional characters earned their own show in the 1989-1990 season and twenty years later, "The Simpsons" is still going strong. Not only is it the longest running US sitcom in current history, it's also the longest running animated series and just surpassed "Gunsmoke" as the longest running primetime entertainment show.

The genius of the show is the way its heartfelt moments are surrounded by sightgags, pop culture references, sarcasm, mischief, and double entendre. And really, how many cartoons have created words that have ended up in Webster's Dictionary? With five rotating full episodes and well over 1,000 glorious clips from it's illustrious run, you could spend hours checking out your favorite moments in Simpsons history.

The other nominees were "King of the Hill", "Family Guy", "Wallace and Gromit", and "Futurama".

After 20,000 votes, the Audience Favorite is...Futurama!



Creator Matt Groening is a double winner in this category. Taking some of the same sensibilities of "The Simpsons" and time-warping them to the 31st century, the adventures of cryogenically frozen 21st century Philip J. Fry and an assortment of oddballs had a rough run.

Originally airing on FOX, it was yanked around the schedule for four seasons before being canceled in 2003. But you can't keep a good show down. Thanks to syndication by Cartoon Network and Comedy Central, the show found new life and has gone on to make new direct-to-dvd movies - four and counting.

Much like "The Simpsons", "Futurama" can be enjoyed in bite sized pieces. There are a little over 300 clips available from five seasons.

In biology, sex is [URL=http://sex.pourle.net/hardcore+indian+sex.html]hardcore indian sex[/url]
a process of combining and mixing [URL=http://sex.pourle.net/carrie+prejean+homemade+sex+tape.html]carrie prejean homemade sex tape[/url]
genetic traits, often resulting [URL=http://sex.pourle.net/pregnant+sex+tube.html]pregnant sex tube[/url]
in the specialization of organisms into [URL=http://sex.pourle.net/old+mature+sex+tubes.html]old mature sex tubes[/url]
a male or female variety (known as a sex). Sexual reproduction involves combining specialized cells (gametes) to form offspring [URL=http://sex.pourle.net/hoopz+sex+tape+online.html]hoopz sex tape online[/url]
that [URL=http://sex.pourle.net/xxx+sex+videos.html]xxx sex videos[/url]
inherit traits from both parents. Gametes can be identical in form and function (known as isogametes), but in many cases an asymmetry has evolved [URL=http://sex.pourle.net/cheap+sex+machines.html]cheap sex machines[/url]
such that two sex-specific types of gametes (heterogametes) exist: male [URL=http://sex.pourle.net/public+sex+tubes.html]public sex tubes[/url]
gametes are small, [URL=http://sex.pourle.net/indian+sex++stories.html]indian sex stories[/url]
motile, and optimized to transport their genetic information over a distance, while female gametes are large, non-motile and contain [URL=http://sex.pourle.net/blonde+milf+sex.html]blonde milf sex[/url]
the nutrients necessary for the early development of the young organism.
An organism's sex is [URL=http://sex.pourle.net/cleb+sex+tapes.html]cleb sex tapes[/url]
defined by the gametes it produces: males produce male [URL=http://sex.pourle.net/sex+toy+parties.html]sex toy parties[/url]
gametes (spermatozoa, or sperm) while females produce female gametes (ova, or egg cells); individual organisms which produce both male and female [URL=http://sex.pourle.net/having+sex+with+animals.html]having sex with animals[/url]
gametes are termed hermaphroditic. Frequently, physical differences are associated with the different sexes of an organism; these sexual dimorphisms can reflect the different reproductive pressures the sexes experience.

Everybody[url=http://sex.jelev.eu/magic+porno+movies.html]magic porno movies[/url] heard rumours [url=http://sex.jelev.eu/free+porno+orgy+movies.html]free porno orgy movies[/url] about women[url=http://sex.jelev.eu/porno+stories.html]porno stories[/url] faking orgasms. Is that true? The majority of women have [url=http://sex.jelev.eu/most+viewed+porno+video+game.html]most viewed porno video game[/url] faked at least one orgasm, yet some fake almost all of them. Why do they do that? There[url=http://sex.jelev.eu/adult+porno+comics+free.html]adult porno comics free[/url] are many reasons and the case is that there's [url=http://sex.jelev.eu/porno+for+free.html]porno for free[/url] no one to blame.
The most [url=http://sex.jelev.eu/free+teen+nude+porno+videos.html]free teen nude porno videos[/url] common are two [url=http://sex.jelev.eu/porno+gay+tube.html]porno gay tube[/url] reasons: they[url=http://sex.jelev.eu/top+100+porno+sites.html]top 100 porno sites[/url] don't want to make their partners feel bad [url=http://sex.jelev.eu/el+video+porno+de+galilea+montijo.html]el video porno de galilea montijo[/url] or they are tired and just want to end sex. Most females say that their partners ar[url=http://sex.jelev.eu/teens+teen+porno.html]teens teen porno[/url] e not satisfied until the[url=http://sex.jelev.eu/can+you+download+porno+on+itunes.html]can you download porno on itunes[/url] girls feels orgasm, there's only one way to make them feel happy and stop the[url=http://sex.jelev.eu/vintage+stewardess+porno.html]vintage stewardess porno[/url] exhausting procedure - fake.
Another [url=http://sex.jelev.eu/hidden+porno+clips+free.html]hidden porno clips free[/url] reason is that a[url=http://sex.jelev.eu/cartoon+sex+porno.html]cartoon sex porno[/url] typical female [url=http://sex.jelev.eu/porno+fisting+sites.html]porno fisting sites[/url] doesn't seek for orgasm; she desires a sexual [url=http://sex.jelev.eu/dream+porno+movies.html]dream porno movies[/url] relationship only because she wants intimacy. Still, such an attitude may make her partner feel bad. [url=http://sex.jelev.eu/bizzare+videos+porno.html]bizzare videos porno[/url] The only way out is to [url=http://sex.jelev.eu/hardcore+porno+pics.html]hardcore porno pics[/url] fake it out.
[url=http://sex.jelev.eu/piping+tom+porno+pics.html]piping tom porno pics[/url] Some women never really experience orgasm while making sex, but they want their partner to feel good about himself and her. Men usually expect women to have pleasure, that's why females have no other choice. They have to fake to have a good relationship.
Loss of interest, having sex only because the partner wants to, also makes women to fake. Most females talk to their friends about such things and while they know other women act it, they do so too, because it's an easier way to have a good relationship.
