(and he even had the "I laughed, I cried, it was better than Cats" reference, which I'm always
thinking of, but no one ever seems to know what I'm talking about when I mention it):http://www.weebls-stuff.com/toons/29/

That's strange... it seems to me that most people I know of that expression, and that it's supposed to be mumbled in a deadpan voice, regardless of whether they know its original context. (The most extreme example of things in this category, I think, is "they're baaaa-aaaack", which can more or less be applied to anything for any reason, though I'll bet 10 percent of its users know its origin. I think I saw it used a couple of months ago in a Boston Herald headline about the Patriots' victory. Buh...)
Teaser preview for Poltergeist II.
The Kenya animation was very funny!
My favourite is Scampi
. I know the reference for “They’re baaa-aack”, but I don’t know the context for “better than Cats
”; anybody want to enlighten me?

A Saturday Night Live sketch that was an ad for a hypnotist show. They do the shots of people coming out of the show, and they all say "I laughed, I cried, it was better than Cats" in a completely monotone voice. And then they give reviewers' comments, but the voice-over does the voices moer animated, but it uses the exact same words, so you know the reviewers were all hypnotised, too. It was funny.
