You Need Nickelodeon!

Have you got fond memories of rushing home from school and slumping in front of the amazing kids channel Nickelodeon for hours on end?  Or maybe you even appreciated the finer points of it’s cartoons as an adult, like I do now!  Either way, we’ve got a treat for you to help remember those halcyon days!

First up we have the deliciously dark Invader Zim!  This series was about an extraterrestrial named Zim from the Planet Irk, and his ongoing mission to destroy the planet Earth, which (luckily for us) never seemed to go to plan!  Our tee features his quirky and loveable robot servant GIR, who was the ultimate fan favourite from the show.

Next up we have the awesomely bright and colourful show Rocko’s Modern Life which aired between 1993 and 1996.  This show was based around the surreal adventures of a wallaby named Rocko, and his life in the city of O-Town.  Originally from Australia, it showed the hardships of Rocko adjusting to the American way of life!  Our brand new T-Shirt focuses on Rocko and his faithful dingodog Spunky.

Ride into battle with our new Game of Thrones tees!

I have been absolutely addicted to the new epic medieval fantasy TV series Game Of Thrones recently.  Based on the set of books A Song of Ice and Fire by the much loved author George R. R. Martin, this series has been brought to life by the amazing and established American production company HBO.  The box set of the first series was recently released here in the UK a few months ago which is where I got my fix, I’ve honestly never raced through a TV series so quickly!  The second series has just finished airing in the US, so until it finds it’s way over to our shores I’ve got these two fab new T-shirts to keep my attention and show my love of the series!

The first of our new designs focuses on one of Series Ones central families, The Starks.  It features the sigil of Stark House, an impressive grey Direwolf, along with one of Ned Starks must uttered mottos ‘Winter Is Coming’.  Perfect for me to show my respect to my favourite Game of Thrones families instead of those pesky Lannisters!

Another of my favourites from the series had to be Daenerys Targaryen who had a great storyline that saw her completely grow as a character up to her explosive final scene of the first series.  This tee represents the sigil of the Targaryen House, a three headed dragon along with the motto Fire and Blood.  Out of all the characters I’m especially looking forward to seeing what adventures she will get up to in the second series!

The day our all our Truffle Shuffle-ing dreams came true!

So for those of you who don’t know, here at TruffleShuffle.com, we’re named after the one and only TruffleShuffle dance, as performed by the incomparable Chunk from The Goonies…….

Yes, our founder loved the iconic movie so much that when it came to coming up for a name for the site back in 2004, Chunk’s classic belly shaking move was the only choice and hence TruffleShuffle.com was born.

With that in mind, you can imagine our absolute amazement to discover that none other than Jeff B Cohen AKA the man who played Chunk over 25 years ago is following us on twitter!

MENTAL!

We’ve even tweeted each other and were completely honoured to send him some of our official Goonies tees including this one of course….

Not that he needs reminding how to do it I’m sure!

For those of you wondering where he is now, unfortunately, Jeff decided to leave the movie world behind after his star stint as Chunk and is now a 36-year-old entertainment lawyer! In fact, he runs his own law firm, Cohen & Gardner, LLP and in 2008, was named by the “Hollywood Reporter” as one of Hollywood’s Top 35 Executives Under 35! Who’d have thunk it?

We’re struggling to see any resemblance whatsoever to our childhood hero Chunk!

Chunk then.....

In a recent interview, Jeff said ‘Puberty was the main culprit in ending my acting career. I went from being kind of this chunky little kid to looking different and I was really bummed because I loved acting.’

Don’t worry Jeff – we’ll always love you and huge thanks again for making our day, no scrap that YEAR by following us! We’d never have dreamed all those years ago that the guy who inspired our whole site would know who we are!

See people, dreams really do come true!
