Blog Candy!


UPDATE: We have a winner!

Congratulations to Connie, from Tails From the Foster Kittens!!! Random.org chose her to be the recipient of some awesome candy and cartoony goodies from Teletoon Retro. Connie, please email me your address so I can send you your prize!

Thank you so much to Kate from Teletoon Retro for the incredible prize packages. And thanks to everyone who entered. I only wish I had 60 prizes so everyone could have won.

Have you ever gone to a blog, read that title and thought, "Cool! I want to win candy!" only to be severely disappointed to see that there is, in fact, NO candy at all? I mean sure they offer 'prizes', but no actual CANDY.

No?

So that's just me then? Crap.

Well, today there IS candy. And lots of other goodies too.

No, I am not giving away my steadily-dwindling stash of Christmas chocolates. I am not even clearing out that huge bowl still hidden away stored-out-in-the-open-(closet)-where-any-of-my-family-can-partake-of-them-if-they-really-wanted-to of Rockets I bought last Halloween.

Nope. This is the bestest candy of all ... Fresh Candy!

After posting Perfectly Imperfect back on January 12th where I mentioned my all-time favorite TV channel Teletoon Retro, I actually recieved an email from Teletoon Retro.

My first panicked reaction on realizing who was writing was "Oh crap! What did I do now?"

But Kate Dickson from Teletoon Canada was so kind.

More than kind.

Extremely Incredibly Kind! I confessed I was a tad more than insanely jealous of her job... I mean, to get PAID to watch cartoons??? Are you serious???

*Sigh*

Now there's an occupation I would love. Imagine being the one to choose programming like the celebration of the Winter Olympics by featuring Scooby-Doo's Laff-A-Lympics every night. I could be the one to review all those classic cartoons and finding just the perfect ones to air on Valentine's Day too...

Okay maybe not. I doubt I could decide since I love them all. I guess I'll just have to accept my fate and simply PRETEND I work there; 'cause last week, looky what showed up on my doorstep:


Holy crapoly! A reusable Toony bag filled with a great Loony Tunes storybook, the Scooby-Doo All Star Laff-a-Lympics DVD, a Rubik's cube Teletoon Retro keychain, a very cool Teletoon Retro coffee mug, candy, candy, and more candy!

Oh, and did I mention she sent A SECOND prize pack for one of my blog readers??? Yuppers! It contains exactly the same things I have laid out above, but still in it's pretty wrapping and ribbons just waiting for a new home.
So if you want to win REAL BLOG CANDY (along with all the other fantastic Toony goodness), just let me know in your comments.

I'll pick a random winner on Monday, February 15th.

Good luck!

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to get back to my pretend job here at Psuedo-Teletoon-Retro. I have cartoons to watch, a book to read, a puzzle to figure out and a whole whack of candy to snack on. It looks like a full day.

But first I have to figure out how I can possibly dip that huge sucker into my Teletoon mug of steaming coffee...

Annray said...

Wow, I wish I could get paid for watching cartoons, that would be the good life. So much better than sitting in the office all day... What is the world coming to?!

I'm loving this give away so for the first time in my blogger history I'm going to jump in and say that I would love, love, love to get that.

Good luck everyone! :)

CJ said...

Leavning a second comment. I am new to this. Didn't mean to not leave my name.

Viewtiful_Justin said...

Oh my gosh. I would LOVE to have that prize pack! It would make my (admittedly craptastic) month!

JoJo said...

Congratulations and oh by the way,

PICK ME ME ME ME ME ME ME !!!!! I love all the old cartoons! I grew up on Sat. morning cartoons. My sense of humour was shaped by Warner Brothers.

*insert my sob story here of how 2009 was the worst year of my life and how a prize pack would really be a pick me up and how I NEVER win any contests*

Sharon Marie said...

Very nice of them to give you 2 goody bags. I'd like to be entered to win one of them too. Thanks

P said...

Ooo that gift pack is absolutely awesome!! I want in!!

Jackie said...

Wow , that's incredible! Enjoy watching all the cartoons! I don't think candy is good for you though but I enjoyed reading your blog anyway! :)

Janie B said...

Of course I want candy!! Who doesn't want candy? So nice of you to share.

Cartoons and candy! Count me in!

Heather said...

How cool is that? That's awesome that they sent that to you out of the blue...and even awesome-er that you get a 2nd package to give away to a reader. :D

kristengilmore said...

That' so awesome! It's so cool that they gave you two!

ToadMama said...

I can always, ALWAYS use some candy.

SaraReno said...

Candy!!! (of course, it would all be for the kids... no, really!)

I've actually managed to hook my kids on the classic cartoons (NOT old), too and now I can feel less guilty watching them. :)

Allegria said...

Oh WOW! How awesome! You must have almost hit the floor when you got the call. And then DID hit the floor when you received the package! How fun! My hubs is a Teletoon nut. One of his big angsts is that down here they don't show Bugs on the Cartoon Network. Want to get him going? Mention it sometime. Then just not and smile...

Allegria said...

(and in my excitement over your delivery and all, I forgot to mention that yes please--put me in for the draw! Thanks!)

~*Connie*~ said...

btw, it is not just you! what a great surprise for you!! I hope it is a nice surprise for me too :)

juskaulani said...

I wish I got paid to watch cartoons, I'd be richer then Bill Gates! (:

Pick me for the candy bag, please! (:

MahoneyMusings said...

I have four children who are sucking the life force out of me. I could use that bag 'o goodies for a crapload of bribery and perhaps get an hour of peace and quiet for myself.

Heck, I could even use it for my husband too.

DJ Kirkby said...

Oh you lucky, lucky woman. I am very jealous and would love to be your lucky winner. Pick me please. Pretty please? With candy on top?

Ashley said...

I just wanted to say how cool! That is so awesome you got fun treats in the mail. However, *don't* pick me... I can just imagine you announcing your niece somehow got the candy (your candy-loving niece...) and the flood of comments afterwards, several iterations of "Fix!". I'll just look at the pretty pictures instead... ooooh colourful :o)

Sam Liu said...

Well done!!

Mmm...candy....pick me, pick me, pick me!!! :D

Richard said...

*Slams fist on desk* I must have! Me!

StillNotIram said...

That would be so amazing watching watching cartoons for a living! Wow what a lucky girl.

I wouldn't mind having me some of that blog candy... (:

Kisma said...

That is pretty awesome! Congrats!
That would be an awesome job to sit and watch cartoons all day... I'm not too good at sitting though so it would be an adjustment.

J. Alvey said...

Are you kidding me?!?!! Who WOULDN'T want that!

BTW I LOVE reading your blog. Sends me into deep belly laughs and/or hysterical giggling fits. (Really hard to explain when I'm reading them in class...)

Keep it up!

Kristie said...

This prize is perfect for me! I've gotten on an 80's kick lately and I've been posting random retro television shows and cartoons. I've been sharing many childhood memories about growing up in the best decade ever!

Plus, there is actual candy in this giveaway! Wooohooo!

The Perks of Being Young and Married said...

How awesome is that? I think that is amazing and awesome. I would be in shock if I found out one of my favorite channels was reading my blog.. cause *hint* hint* HGTV please come to my house and finish my bathroom.. and make over my kitchen I LOVE YOU haha.. i wish .. but that is completely awesome enjoy your goodies and if you'd like to send the other bag to me that would be awesome :)

ReformingGeek said...

CraftyRia said...

Wow! That is the most fantastic blog candy I've seen in a very long time! I'd LOVE to win that!

That would be a great job, wouldn't it?

Nicki said...

melinda said...

Awesome candy! And I think I should win it because I'm really tired of watching Jack's Big Music show & Mickey Mouse Clubhouse everyday with my niece. :)

Shawna said...

Kate said...

OOOOOOHHHH! Pick me! Pick me! OK, enough about me..... congrats on the swag! Hurry and write something cool about Donald Trump, maybe he'll send you a bag of cash!

lizzyland said...

Mmmm...Candy! Me likes! Me likes Cartoons!

Also, I think that no Valentine's Day is complete without some Pepe Le Pew cartoons. He is the quintessential valentine I believe.

Grace said...

You mean all I have to say is "Please" and "Thank you"? I don't have to join anything, follow anyone, tweet, write two posts and link back to every known blog in the universe?

You mean I just have to ask, nicely, of course?

well, aren't you the nice one.

Please? Thanks!

hotacrossbuns said...

Princess Haiku said...

Well, I must admit I like candy and it isn't the 15th yet so I guess I am in. BTW this looks like a fun blog and something to lighten the mood during our neodepression!

Joey said...

I have been reading your blog lately and really enjoy it. Not to suck up or anything. Wouldn't it awesome to watch cartoons all the time?!?!?

carmar76 said...

Anabella said...

Earning a living just by watching cartoons sounds like heaven!
Now thats what we call a life *sigh*
P.S i love both candy and cartoons.....If you know what i mean!! :P

Meredithmyself said...

I love candy, I love candy, I love candy, I love candy........... the tooth fairy will love you for giving me all that candy. :) and my goodness who wouldn’t want to THE ROCK to love you.

JD at I Do Things said...

HOLY CRAP!

This makes my stupid contest look . . . STUPID! Geez, I feel bad just giving away three lousy candy bars when YOU are giving away this amazing prize package! (Of course, I didn't get no stinkin' e-mail from the Milky Way people, offering to send me free stuff).

ANYway, consider me entered. This is a way-cool prize.

(And you didn't even make people tell you you're pretty!)

WarsawMommy said...

Hiya, first-time visitor here. I followed you over from Mary's post about Gowan (GOWAN, y'all! You fellow Canadians know who I am talking about!) on Holy Mackerel.

I must say, I'd love to win the candy, but you may not be too thrilled about shipping it over to me. I'm in Poland, see, and if geographical location disqualifies me, well, so be it (WAAAAHHH!!!!!).

And can I just add that I love your craft room? All those colours. Sigh.

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

Randomly pick ME ME ME!

That is so .... groovy! (Is that a retro enough term;-)

You lucky duck, you! Congrats!

Nanny Goats In Panties said...

OMG - oh pick me pick me!!!!!! Please please please pretty please? Not that I'm desperate for candy or anything. I've never heard of Retrotoon. Boy, the U.S. never has the cool stuff.

Unfinished Rambler said...

Ooooh.

Ooooh.

:)

No, really. Me me me!

Thanks in advance.

Babs-beetle said...

What a lovely treat for you to receive!

I'm not a cartoon watcher so you needn't enter me :)

Beth said...

I have 3 sons. Cartoons and candy would be perfect for a snowy winter day! :)

My email is mb32 at comcast dot net

Rachel said...

first time poster here but long time follower.
that goody bag looks amazing.My husband and I are both big kids at heart so we LOVE cartoons and candy. I would be tickled if i were picked to receive this (and so would my silly hubby :)

Jessica said...

Let me just say that I am extremely jealous that you have a tv station of retro cartoons! I mean yeah I have cartoon network but that doesn't even come close to what you have! You have precious precious gold! I love your blog I have it book marked along with epicute, LOLcats, and Cake Wrecks, and twice a week on my days off I go through my bookmarks but with yours i spend the most time reading your older blogs and laughing. We are very similar in our comedy and out look on life! You make blogging interesting! Thanks!

Bryna said...

I don't want to be in the raffle for the winnings because I don't really like candy (I know, I'm a weird one - BUT if it was an ice cream contest, I'd be ALL OVER IT!)

But that is completely awesome. You enjoy the heck out of those cartoons. Watch them proudly... And let me know if you need any help. :)

Anahid said...

How cool!!! I'm so jealous...I want a bag of Looney goodies!!!! :)

Bethany said...

But hey - what you do is pretty cool, too, right?

One is never too old for Fun Dip.

taysmommy said...

I would love a job where I could watch cartoons all day! Well, if they were good cartoons and not some of the really bad ones they have these days. lol

Jessica said...

I absolutely love your blogs. I crack up just thinking about them. Your life seems to have so much hype in it when really its just your humour in the little things in life that make me love your blog. I hope I am the one to get that retro cartoons goodie bag. If not I think reading another one of your posts will cheer me up.

JapaneseCars said...

i want some! yuuuuuuuum! hahahahahahaha. that's ifanastico! [spanish version]

Vegas Princess said...

Okay I totally have to win this to give to my kid I didn't know I had He has been so fussy since his "operation." (Read my blog if you want a chuckle)

P.S. I love Looney Tunes and worked at Warner Bros. so I think this also qualifies me to win. :)

adhi said...

Very nice of them to give you 2 goody bags

MurfreesboroMom said...

How fabulous of you to share! I think I would already be on the second bag by now!!!
I would love to win. Put name in the hat!

ShineForLife said...

That is awesome. I am a little jealous. Even more awesome that you are sharing with us. I feel like begging, but I won't. OK, I will a little. PLEASE pick me.

LOVE the prize.

SWUBIRD said...

Maureen:

I suppose I am a strange animal. I don't eat candy, never did, even as a kid. I do like dark chocolate, but wouldn't you just know, my system won't tolerate it. Sad.

Happy trails.

Jen said...

Ooh, I want to win, I want to win. I love Loony Tunes and Scooby. That is some of the best blog swag I have ever seen. Much better than a Diaper Genie or baby wipes, something practical finally.

Maureen said...

Holy Crapoly!

Good Luck everyone... thank the gods I will leave it up to Randomizer.org to pick the winner tomorrow.

I couldn't stand the pressure. ;)

Gretchy Girl said...

Oh, May the Random God of Picking a winner Pick me today! What a cool prize!

Love your blog!

~*Connie*~ said...

You can reach me at cesg at webwmn dot com

Sproglet said...

DAMN!!!!

I haz a fail! My waistline is thanking you though :D

B xx

~*Connie*~ said...

it showed up yesterday, and was such a major hit with all the kitties. Fleurp grabbed some of the ribbon and ran off with it. Twee just looked on in facination at all the crinkly stuff. Jack was a little annoyed that I wasn't paying attention to him, but when I showed him all the goodies he was appeased. Ollie was grumpy, but he's always grumpy :)

Thank you for sharing the goodies!

Glo said...

Thanks for the candy, I would like to win! :)
