Stoopid Buddy & WWE Dropkicks us With Stop Motion Animated "Slam City"

WWE, the pop culture wrestling phenomenon has gotten into the business of Stop Motion Animation.  Yes, that's right.  Basically, it's WWE action figures had a baby with Seth Green's Friendship All-Stars and continually posts 2-minute videos via internet about their accomplishment.  Stoopid Buddy Stooidos is the Stop Motion hub right now, so it's no surprise that WWE have teamed up with them to create this series.

There will be a total of 26, 2-minute episodes distributed through WWE Network, Hulu, PlayStation, Xbox, AOL On, Nintendo, Vudu, Google Play, (cough, cough), Kabillion,, and finally, iTunes.  I haven't seen a Stop Motion show distributed like this, ever!  This is basically a long commercial to get boys ages 4-12 to get their moms to buy them toys.  I do not know if this will grow a new legion of Stop Motion loving fans like The Nightmare Before Christmas did, but I say whatever little glorification we can get the better.

You can go and watch the first three episodes right now by going to their website:
