Space Jays: Baseball + 80s animation = Genius

Cashew Mirman

What do you get when you combine Canada, baseball, animation, and space? A cartoon filled with seemingly unlimited potential, apparently.

This is probably the best baseball-related thing to surface on the Internet in some time.

From Cashew Mirman, the same mind that brought you 8-Bit Blue Jays, comes the first episode of Space Jays, a two-minute cartoon starring R.A. Dickey and several of his Blue Jay friends.

Behold:


Poor Dustin McGowan, he was only freed from the carbonite for 10 seconds before his arm fell off.

Expectations are incredibly high for Episode II: The Wrath of Zaun. Let's just hope Mirman stays away from prequels altogether. Coming in during the middle of the story is totally fine.
