The Amazing Screw-On Head!

Slinking around the SciFi channel last night, as usual, I ran across an intensely interseting, but subtly weird cartoon. Not used to seeing cartoons on SciFi, I stopped to watch--and discovered an absolutely amazing new artform. Nearly 2 a.m. and I was entranced the entire time. Took me a little while to get working and online to discover the name of this strange gem.

And then today, while slinking around the Internet, I discovered it on

Steampunk cartoon from SciFi channel: Amazing Screw-On is hosting the entire pilot of a proposed new animated steampunk toon called "The Amazing Screw-On Head," based on the comics of the same name. They're asking for feedback from the net about the show, and if it's positive enough, they've promised to commission and air the rest of the series. I'm watching it now and loving it.

Thou can visit the SciFi channel website dedicated to this and watch the pilot, they even have a survey, if the response to this is highly positive... well, thou've already read that part. So what art thou waiting for, a link to the Amazing Screw-On Head page?

Here is the teaser summary from the above-mentioned page:

In this hilarious send-up of Lovecraftian horror and steampunk adventure, President Abraham Lincoln's top spy is a bodyless head known only as Screw-On Head.

When arch-fiend Emperor Zombie steals an artifact that will enable him to threaten all life on Earth, the task of stopping him is assigned to Screw-on Head. Fortunately, Screw-On Head is not alone on this perilous quest. He is aided by his multitalented manservant, Mr. Groin, and by his talking canine cohort, Mr. Dog.

Can this unorthodox trio stop Emperor Zombie in time? Does Screw-On Head have a body awesome enough to stop the horrors that have been unleashed? Where can we get a talking dog?

All these questions (O.K., maybe not that last one) will be answered when you watch the thrilling tale of The Amazing Screw-On Head!
