Who Shrunk Saturday Morning is a perfect example to why my generation is so fucked up. This is a clip show of cartoons that will be on NBC Saturday morning that features Saved by the Bell characters zapped into the TV set and they have to get back before Roz from Night Court gives them detention for being late.

The last act of this movie has a climactic crash that I was not expecting.
I will preface this with I have watched a crapload if wrestling over the past few days. Wrestlemania weekend has that effect on me. As I was finishing up Smackdown tonight I was reminded that This documentary would be premiering on HBO. I have been waiting for this since I saw the first trailer months ago.
