My case of severe "Double Dragon mania" continues.

I came across an episode of a show called "Regular Show", which is a hilarious throwback, 80's style, retro videogame nerd cartoon. In an episode titled "Rage against the TV" the main characters are playing a game controlling red and blue mullet haired street toughs against bands of roving thugs on an SMS. The events of this episode were just like moments of my childhood, EXACTLY like moments of my childhood, honest.

Holy crap!

I never thought I'd ever see a DD spoor or reference in modern times(let alone a Sega Master System!!!)...but they went way beyond that as you mentioned

- spoof of the Woods level of DD and Abobo

- making fun of beat em up bosses who start flashing red when they're nearing death

- spoofing the anxiety of being at the final boss, pausing to regroup

- making fun of the 1 hit kill aspect of so many late 80's bosses(DD1, Renegade, NARC, etc)

- making fun of that feeling of panic/yelling/relief with a friend over a video game session

- making fun of old strategy guide books

- making fun of the awe in the late 1980's of getting to an end boss/level and describing it to friends

I loved that first episode where they spoofed the fun of tag teaming against a pillow or large stuffed animal when you were little, hyped up from watching wrestling
