Whether you want to call it a "Hurricane" or a "Superstorm," the weather event known as "Sandy" left a path of destruction that is beyond belief. One of the many areas facing massive clean-up is the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn, and on November 11, the Hip Tot Music Festival will host a Famiyl Fundraiser to benefit the Red Hook Initiative for Sandy Relief Efforts. Music will be by The Itty Biddies.
There's a 26-hour TRANSFORMERS PRIME takeover happening right now on The Hub, where every episode of Seasons 1 and 2 are running in order, capping off tomorrow night with the Season Finale.

On December 4, the BOOGERS will serve up their third batch of punk rock for kids when EXTRACTUM VICTORIS hits the streets. It's no secret that the BOOGERS are well-respected here at Rock Father HQ (check reviews of their first two albums here and here), so when word came in today that the band has a new video, you can bet that I was excited to share it. Below the break you can check out "Pandas Are Dangerous," a song with an important message for the whole family.
As first mentioned here on The Rock Father earlier this month, toymaker JAKKS Pacific has created a special line of Presidential 'Kids - Cabbage Patch Kids designed in the likenesses of President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney and his running mate, Paul Ryan. The dolls are being auctioned on eBay through November 6 to benefit Rock the Vote, a non-partisan, non-profit organization. The auction is NOW LIVE.
Earlier this month, I featured CedarWorks Playsets here on The Rock Father. I was intrigued by their customizable layouts and unique line of Rhapsody playsets for indoor use, as well as their extensive outdoor sets. Now, the folks at CedarWorks sent over some photos from a project crafted in their Concept Lab for reality star Kourtney Kardashian and her son, Mason. The $10K "Rhapsody Crystal Palace" was handcrafted in Rockport, Maine for the Kardashians to use during the production of KIM AND KOURTNEY TAKE MIAMI, which will begin airing in January of 2013. Check it out below.
There has never been, nor will there ever be, another Halloween special as timeless as the 1966 classic, IT'S THE GREAT PUMPKIN, CHARLIE BROWN. That said, it's only fitting that I include the Peanuts gang in 31 Days of Halloween on the big day itself. If you don't already have it on DVD or Blu-Ray (or maybe, even if you do), ABC will be running THE GREAT PUMPKIN tonight at 8pm ET.
