Kids WB Crazy Takes (early 2000's promos)


Kids WB Crazy Takes promos
Status Partially Found

Kids WB Crazy Takes were a collection of promos for shows on Kids WB. They took the form of outtake reels, with clips from the shows being edited to make it look like the "actors" were having goof-ups. They were shown in the early 2000's, but very few have resurfaced. One promo features Joey from Yu-Gi-Oh trying to say his lines when his hair keeps falling over his face. The only other Crazy Takes video on YouTube is a more general one, featuring Uncle Chi from Jackie Chan Adventures repeatedly messing up an incantation.

According to a YouTube comment on the Joey video, another Yu-Gi-Oh promo exists where Yugi's wig is blown off by a strong wind, revealing him to be bald. The commenter also revealed that characters from Kids WB shows did crossovers with other shows in some of the promos.

UPDATE: September 8, 2016 - Since this page's creation, a number of comments have appeared! First, a Lost Media Wiki contributor claims to have seen a Wolverine promo where Wolverine tries to do a Yu-Gi-Oh duel but ends up getting the cards stuck in his claws. Next, an anonymous user found another Yu-Gi-Oh promo in one of their old recordings in which James peeks out of the bushes as Yugi is having tea. Also, another Lost Media Wiki contributor claims to have found at least one Crazy Takes promo on a Scooby-Doo DVD that he distinctly remembers owning, he said he would find it but he hasn't been heard from since. Finally, another anonymous user claims to have seen a 7th Heaven and Pokemon Crazy Takes crossover promo where Charizard blasted fire on one of the main 7th Heaven cast members, who was drawn burnt in anime style, and also claims that a Youtube user has a video of the promo unlisted.

There was another one where Joey left his orange drink on the duel field next to yami's deck, yami accidentally knocked it over and got angry. I wish I had a tape but this was based off of memory so it might be a bit off.

There are other promos not from this series that either I remember or have read about that I've never seen online. For example, I vividly remember one edited from the Pokemon episode "Wired for Battle" where Shingo is showing off his Trainer database and Ash asks what it says about him. Shing replies "It says you have an overdue library book." It might have been part of the Pokemon reading promotion back in 2001.

I don't know if this was a Crazy Take, but I remember a Kids WB promo that involved Wolverine trying to Yu-Gi-Oh dual, and ending up with the cards stuck on his claws.

I have the Yugi and Tea promo with James peeking out of the bushes. I'll check my archives and see if I have more.

Anyone know which month of the year these would have aired? I have a bunch of Jackie Chan Adventures episodes recorded between May-August 2002, but a majority of the promos are for the Belch-a-Thon or the Way Out of the Way Roadtrip.

I would be SO interested to see you upload all of the commercial breaks from those videos. Im a huge fan of Jackie Chan Adventures and an active watcher of Youtube channels like Revolution Zone3:16. Commercials ripped right from Kids WB, all of them, are some of my guiltiest pleasures.

Well, sources do claim it aired it the early 2000's, so it is indeed possible that the tapes you have may include the "Crazy Takes" promos.

I distinctly remember owning a Scooby-Doo DVD that contains a Crazy Take commercial or two. I think it's just in my basement. I'll post it to YouTube and link it here if I find it.

Oh! I remember one! There was one with 7th Heaven and Pokemon, where Charizard blasted one of the cast members and he was drawn all anime-burnt like. I believe WalrusGuy, that famous Youtube Poop creator, has that clip unlisted. I saw it a long while ago, but I don't know if it's still around.

I remember these bumpers, Kids WB had them all the time and they had the different characters from different shows interact with each other on a studio lot. They were very similar to the "CN City" bumpers Cartoon Network had around the same time, albeit with more wackiness as opposed to the more laid-back tone of CN City.

Coincidentially, Kid's WB and Cartoon Network were owned by the same parent company.

Might be confirmation bias, but I vaguely remember every single bumper mentioned in this article. Sucks that they're lost because I'd love to see them again. This site is blowing my mind.
