"Misfits of Science" Kickstarter-funded Shot-for-shot Intro Remake

There's something totally awesome about seeing a TV show intro that you know inside and out lovingly and hilariously remade.

Check out their YouTube channel for a side-by-side comparison of the original and the remake, and also a blooper reel.

Point about the Remake that I found pretty cool:  The font! Such a wonderful recreation.

Strangely enough, there's a second Intro Remake, this one "Misfits of Science: 2013":

I like how they put in some new humor (teasing a tiny El), it makes it easier to imagine what a new version might be like if made today...

Funny thing about these two remakes? Nobody attempted to do a remake of the theme song itself.

What if Misfits of Science had a cartoon or comic book...?

It's fun to play 'what if,' and it's nearly impossible to resist when it comes to fandoms. What if Miracles had gone on for more than 13 episodes and Paul and Keel eventually had to take on the "coming darkness"? What if War of the Worlds had a reunion movie while all four main actors are still with us, what would a worthy storyline be? Or what if Misfits of Science had been allowed to become super popular and had gotten trading cards, coloring books, a line of comic books, or its own spin-off cartoon? That's one of the things I find so cool about this awesome pen and ink MoS fan-art from The Napkin Guy -- it helps me to imagine that alternate universe where such a thing actually became reality.....

Thank you @jetts31 for sending me the original drawing! It's now nestled in with the rest of my MoS collection :)
