HumaNature Studios announced today the ToeJam & Earl will be coming to a streaming service near you with their Super Funky Telethon on May 26th. Following the successful release of ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove!, the developers will be talking about the game’s future including a 4-player co-op console update, the upcoming endless mode, and what is to become of the series in the future. The event will broadcast live from Van Nuys on Mixer, YouTube and Twitch from 12pm to 4pm PDT, sponsored by Attack Media, Limited Run Games, Corptron, G-Fuel, and Corn Nuts. (Yes, Corn Nuts still exist!) Here’s the full info on what the broadcast will entail.
Prepare for four hours of groovy nostalgia with special hosts including ‘90s heroes Macaulay Culkin (Executive Producer of Back in the Groove!) and Freddie Prinze Jr.. Super streamer Sonja Reid (aka OMGItsFirefoxx) and Genieve Goings (host of Disney’s Choo Choo Soul) bring their charm and will keep the show from being a funky boy’s club. Call the hotline for a chance to talk to the hosts, win dope prizes or even participate in one of the many wacky surprises planned for the day.The event will be set in three different areas. First, the Game Zone, a retrowave ‘90s living room complete with neon lights, a ginormous funkometer that tracks the progress of the event, and giant screens for the cool kids to chill out with some games. Call celebs at the Planet Pitch & Phone Zone and watch them respond. The Stunt Zone is where all the really weird stuff is going down. Hint: we’re talking a swimming pool of Corn Nuts, a G-Fuel Dunk Tank, and something involving live ducks…As the funkometer rises, guests will have to
sufferenjoy increasingly bizarre experiments and stunts. Get ready to watch the guests try outbizarre ‘90s snack combinations in a game of Dunkawhos. Did somebody say Flamin’ Hot Cheetos dipped in fudge? That was probably Earl. Dude’ll eat anything.“Big news like Toejam & Earl’s multiplayer and endless mode updates deserve equally big ways to announce,” said Greg Johnson, founder of Humanature Studios. “So with help from our Executive Producer Macaulay Culkin, we thought hey, why not with a 4-hour live show full of celebs, games, and surprises?”
