Suburban Commando: young Elisabeth Moss, Hulk Hogan and a flying cat

Question: What do professional wrestling personality, Hulk Hogan, and Mad Men actress, Elisabeth Moss, have in common?
Answer: The 1991 sci-fi comedy bomb, Suburban Commando!

Clearly someone realized that this exchange between the pre-reality-TV wrestler and the pre-Peggy-Olson actress shouldn’t die on a VHS tape in somebody’s basement. Thus, the Internet gives us these great gifs of a cat in a tree, a little girl flying through the air and Hulk Hogan to the rescue. EPIC!

If these animated gifs aren’t animating in your browser, that’s a damn shame, and I recommend going the extra mile to open them in a new tab or a new browser. Because they are that funny. At least I think they are. And I needed a laugh.

Click through for a bonus animated gif that connects to this story because Elisabeth Moss stars on Mad Men alongside Alison Brie. P.S. If you happen to know why some animated gifs automatically animate (below) vs. others that don’t (above), please leave a comment and explain it to me–it drives me nuts!

    Concerning your GIF problem: I don’t know if it’s only the problem of WordPress specifically, but scaling them down with WP causes them to no longer animate. If you want them to work at a smaller size than the original, you should scale it with Photoshop to the exact amount of pixels you want them.
    At least that’s been my experience so far. ;-)
