ToeJam & Earl’s Super Funky Telethon Drops 26 May, 4-Player Co-Op Coming Soon™
Celebrity Guests Including Macaulay Culkin, ‘90s Nostalgia, and New TJ&E Announcements
SAN FRANCISCO – 13 May 2019 – ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove!, the newly-released fourth entry of the beloved, funkadelic action roguelike series from HumaNature Studios, brings the funk back with their live ToeJam & Earl’s Super Funky Telethon on 26 May.
Awesome sponsors including Attack Media, Limited Run Games, Corptron (Creators of Duck Game), G-Fuel and Corn Nuts are making this possible and providing great prizes. Be sure to tune in for some exciting announcements from HumaNature, including dates for the 4-player co-op console update, the upcoming endless mode, and the future of the series.
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
suffer enjoy 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?”
ToeJam & Earl’s Super Funky Telethon will be live from Van Nuys on Mixer, YouTube and Twitch on 26 May from 12 pm to 4 pm PST and 3 pm to 7 pm EST.
