Firefly - Fisher Price style!! Look what happens when you really, REALLY dumb down a show.

That is so wrong... and yet so darn funny! Love it!
What's a "cleaverly consealed" herd of cattle?

(And is this the same people who did this joke in the form of a still photo, or a ripoff of that?)

And still more riveting than half the stuff on TV today...Sigh. (Even with the 'cleaverly consealed' - must be a hidden slaughterhouse?)
Is it very wrong that as a 31 year old single person I know most of the little people's names (although I've always called the farmer Greg rather than Ted, after my college theater artistic director who worked the family farm in Kansas each summer) and also that I recognize which sets most of them come from (the monkeys must be from the new circus set)? In my defense, I do have nephews who are of "Little People age".
Did my eyes somehow skip over the hero of Canton, or was he too busy hurling grenades to be in this?
That said, those are some terrifying space monkies. And 'Wash' looks way too much like Wash...
Hmmm. My comment from before disappeared.

I guess the plastic space monkeys ate it.
Too funny. I'm sure Jayne is missing because this is the "G" rated version. Inara, the companion, is probably described as the ship's counselor that helps the crew get in touch with themselves.
"the ship's counselor that helps the crew get in touch with themselves."

Over and over and over and...

Very funny Vid! :)
Awwwww, sweet and very, very silly!
As if we need any more proof that people really, REALLY miss Firefly! :-)
Now that was disturbing.
Agreed, Shey. That was just...wrong. On many levels.
LOL! My daughter has most of those toys... I wonder if she'll notice when they suddenly go missing tonight because mommy is playing in the other room?!
Ok...that was really funny! Kudos to the person with too much time on their hands. Now I'm sorry we gave my kids' old little people village to some friends.
Wow. Fisher price has changed since I was a kid and you had, like what... six models of people to play all the parts in the recreation of Star Wars. The Wookie was always the hardest to cast.

(I always wished I was a boy so I could have the real figurines -- that's what I get for being a southern girl in the stupid 70's.)
"the ship's counselor that helps the crew get in touch with themselves."

I thought people got in touch with Inara when they were tired of getting in touch with themselves.
Totally cute and ultra silly. It makes we want the show back even more, which I didn't think was possible.

I thought the "cleverly disguised" herd was just because it was one cow (hence a clever disguise for the whole herd).
Too funny. I'm sure Jayne is missing because this is the "G" rated version.

Heh, true. I guess Vera wouldn't be all that appropriate...
