As the old saying goes: If you love something, let it go. If it really loves you back, it'll return when you're well into adulthood, taking the form of a DreamWorks Animation feature film. So, remember everything you loved when you were a kid? Cartoons about friendly ghosts, claymation factotums, Eternia defenders, and junkyard-centric schoolchildren? Super-literal detectives, masked avengers, educational livestock puppets, and heroic collies? No matter where your adorations lie, they're included in the latest purchase of Classic Media by DreamWorks; the sale will transfer the rights of over 450 family entertainment titles to the motion picture studio.
Among them: Casper, Gumby, He-Man and She-Ra, Fat Albert, Dick Tracy, The Lone Ranger, Lamb Chop, Lassie, Where's Waldo?, Pat the Bunny, Richie Rich, Wendy the Good Little Witch, Hot Stuff, Rocky and Bullwinkle, Dudley Do-Right, George of the Jungle, Rankin Bass' Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman, Mr. Magoo, Felix the Cat, Underdog, and Mr. Peabody and Sherman, which is presently in development as a film, with Ty Burrell as the voice of the titular time-traveling terrier.
And that is only twenty-odd titles in a list of 450! Basically, everything in which you spent your younger days investing your existential philosophies should soon be a DreamWorks movie. So what are you most looking forward to?

HUNDREDS of inappropriate photographs of Christina Aguilera have surfaced, and among them are: pictures of her partying at Nicole Richie's bachelorette party with her boyfriend, Matt Rutler, where they are "kissing passionately," and others have her enjoying the company of two naked strippers, mimicking oral sex with a guy holding a sex toy, dancing on a table, and mimicking oral sex again (because it's so new, right?) with a chocolate covered banana at a theme park. - Radar
Beyoncé's father, Mathew Knowles, is no longer her manager. In a statement Beyoncé made to the Associated Press, she said "I am grateful for everything he has taught me. I grew up watching both he and my mother manage and own their own businesses. They were hardworking entrepreneurs and I will continue to follow in their footsteps. He is my father for life and I love my dad dearly." No particular reason was given for why they parted ways, but it doesn't really even matter. She fired her dad! - People
