Who's Watching the Watchmen? Small Children.
Grown-ups who refer to picture books as "novels" have long clung to Watchmen as some sort of proof that just because they live in their mothers' basements (literally or merely emotionally), that doesn't mean that their favorite medium is entirely juvenile.
Presumably, Harry Partridge of Newgrounds is a fan of Watchmen--as the intention of his video seems to be to humorously illuminate the disparity between the ostensible badassery of the source material and the childish tomfoolery of the nonexistent "Saturday Morning Watchmen"--but his intention fails to undermine the plausibility of such an animated program. Rather, it actually increases it.
(Same goes for anyone who dresses up in a fucking costume to go see the movie this weekend.)
