Title: Steven Universe
Bio: Tag team partner of the dastardly Tiger Millionaire. No real backstory. Also, pumas are cool.
Signature Move: Destroying opponents and saving wrestling.
Title: Steven Universe
Bio: Dashing Danny Doober and Handsome Hank Hackleschmidt stomped their way through the tag team tournament and into the fans’ hearts.
Signature Move: Helping Tiger Millionaire and Purple Puma actually win the tag team titles from them in the name of wrestling.

Signature Move: Being undefeated.
Long before Bugs Bunny donned a mask and stepped into the squared circle for some slapstick shenanigans, his brother from a Warner Brother, Porky Pig, was the first Looney ‘toon to step into the ring.
With the announcement of Camp WWE being a new show on the WWE Network, along with a bunch of other shows that add little to no value to the network (just give us new episodes of Legends of Wrestling already, dammit!), it’s only fitting we take a look at this wrestling-themed sketch from Robot Chicken since it’s brought to you by the same people who are making Camp WWE: Seth Green and Stoopid Buddy Stoodios.
“History of Wrestling”
Season 2, Episode 5
A character named Uncle Grandpa immediately draws to mind inbreeding. Luckily, that’s not the case, but he’s definitely out there. Given that the “History of Wrestling” is the extent of which I am able to judge Uncle Grandpa on, I’m going to go out on a limb and also say it’s kind of stupid. But hey, I’m not the intended demographic and I liked Beavis & Butthead growing up, so what the hell do I know? I will say that Uncle Grandpa’s treatment of professional wrestling wasn’t that bad. For a stupid cartoon. So there’s that.
“Dial M for Monkey: Rasslor”
Season 1, Episode 2
One of the WWE’s most popular wrestlers right now, Daniel Bryan, is the personification of what it means to be a true underdog. And if we’ve learned anything from wrestling and every sports movie ever made, ever, is that people like a good underdog story. That’s why it only seemed fitting to write about a particular episode of the once-popular Cartoon Network show, Dexter’s Laboratory.
