Four years ago the world was shocked by the sudden death of comedic legend Robin Williams. Famous for his TV role of Mork (from Happy Days and Mork & Mindy) and for his stand up comedy that was frenetic yet always incisive. However, it was his appearances on film that garnered him the most notice.
His roles in Dead Poets Society, Good Morning Vietnam, Mrs. Doubtfire, the original Jumanji, Patch Adams, Night at the Museum and many others made him an American treasure. He won the Oscar for Good Will Hunting, six Golden Globes, four Grammys, two Kids’ Choice Awards, and many others.
A new biography about him has premiered on HBO, titled Come Inside My Mind. The biography explores the legacy of the comedy icon and tries to make sense of his suicide.
Even though he is gone, we still have William’s many appearances in films that have nerd connections. Here are just a few:

Now that Sony is finally working on a CG animated Popeye film we’re left to speculate just what Popeye is going to look like, hopefully it’s like this. Created by Lee Romao, this version of Popeye is the furthest thing away from Robin Williams live action film of the early 80s’ and well suited for what Sony should be going with now. Hey Sony, if your reading this, hire the man. [Geek Tyrant]

Sometimes fighting supernatural threats just needs a female touch, so why not have suit up occasional ghost buster and resident Ghostbuster‘s secretary Janine Melnitz to tackle the ghosts and goblins. Nothing sexier then a woman in uniform, right fellas? Judging by the boys reactions though they need to step up their game, otherwise they’ll be looking for a new job (again!) [Deviant Art]

Have you ever wondered what a cartoon character would look like if he/she were humanized? Well, some people have enough creativity to try and create this human likeness and let’s just say they do a pretty good job at it. Some are incredibly similar and others are just downright creepy. Sometimes I don’t know what people are thinking by making these friendly cartoons seem like nightmarish horror stories gone all wrong. Check out these pics….
