Disney's animated smash Frozen has inspired scores of amazing mash-ups in the past.

We've already enjoyed the random hilarity of Frozen combined with Fifty Shades of Grey and the disturbing awesomeness of Queen Elsa joining the cast of Game of Thrones, but the latest pairing of snowmen and psychopaths might be the most bleakly brilliant yet.

An ingenious team of animators has re-imagined one of Frozen's most memorable tunes as an ode to a different kind of ice, and naturally they cast everyone's favorite meth kingpin in the role of Anna:

Never before have we felt so much sympathy for Heisenberg's lonely plight. The poor guy just wants his buddy to help him churn out some primo product!

Aaron Paul has some very good points to make about BreakingBadActionFigureGate.

Late last week, a Florida woman named Susan Schrivjer started a Change.org petition that called for Toys R Us to remove dolls from its shelves that depicted Paul's character of Jesse Pinkman and Bryan Cranston's character of Walter White.

Because these Breaking Bad-inspired figures came with bags of meth and cash, Schrivjer wrote that such a "celebration of the drug trade [makes] this collection unsuitable to be sold alongside Barbie dolls and Disney characters."

In response, the chain removed the Breaking Bad dolls from its shelves.

But Paul has now taken to Twitter in response and even used Schrivjer's own example against her.

So much for Bryan Cranston getting the best of Florida Woman.

As previously detailed, a Fort Myers resident named Susan Schrivjer started a Change.org petition late last week in protest of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman action figures on sale at Toys R Us.

Citing the “violent content and celebration of the drug trade” in Breaking Bad, Schrivjer said it was inappropriate for the chain to carry dolls that came with a detachable sack of cash and a bag of meth.

And despite initially releasing a statement that defended the dolls at being labeled for patrons of 15 years of age, while also being for sale in the Adults section, Toys R Us has now pulled the items from its shelves.

Heisenberg 1, Florida Woman 0.

Late last week, Susan Schrivjer of Fort Myers started a Change.org petition to get Toys 'R' Us to remove Breaking Bad action figures from its shelves.

The items - which featured Walter White and Jesse Pinkman in Hazmat suits, along with tiny guns, sacks of cash and a bag of meth - are on sale now for $13.99.

But it isn't the price with which Schrivjer takes issue.

"Toys R Us is well known around the world for their vast selection of toys for children of all ages," the documents reads. "However, their decision to sell a Breaking Bad doll, complete with a detachable sack of cash and a bag of meth, alongside children's toys is a dangerous deviation from their family friendly values."

The Primetime Emmy Awards are being held a little earlier than usual this year, and so in order to avoid competing with preseason football and the 2014 Video Music Awards, the ceremony is being held on a Monday for the first time in 38 years.

But if you're feeling a bit confused, worry not!

For one thing, the show is unlikely to feature anything as unexpected as Miley Cyrus' homeless date to the VMAs. In addition, we've got everything you need to no about who's gonna take home the gold tonight in the handy gallery below:

Best Drama Series: Will Win - Breaking Bad
Expect a repeat win for the final season of the groundbreaking AMC drama.

Yes, the Emmys may have switched up their air date this year, they remain the most predictable of award shows.

Spoiler Alert: The much-discussed series finale of Breaking Bad showed chemistry-teacher-turned-meth-kingpin Walter White finally succumbing to the many forces that were trying to kill him and dying alone in a high-end meth lab.

Or did it?

Bryan Cranston as Walter White

In a recent interview with CNN, actor Bryan Cranston discussed the possibility that the man known to many only as "Heisenberg" may have lived to cook another day, having somehow survived a seemingly fatal bullet wound (and lung cancer). 

"Hey you never saw bags zip up or anything," said Cranston in a response to a question about whether or not Walt survived the finale.

Asked point-blank, "Is he dead?" Cranston replied, simply, "I don't know."

Then came the part that's really got fans tweaking: on the possibility of a movie featuring the talented Mr. White, Cranston said coyly, "Never say never."

Remember when Walter White had to get chemotherapy? That was a crappy day!

And when he chose to sell meth under the pseudo name of Heisenberg? Hey, You Only Live Once!

Following Facebook's 10-year anniversary last week, in which the company celebrated with a special "Look Back" video, South African comedy duo Derick Watts & The Sunday Blues has taken the same concept and applied it to Walter White.

Yes, you can/should watch Breaking Bad online at TV Fanatic in order to fully relive this character's best and worst moments.

But you can also take a minute below to do the same via a hilarious Facebook parody:

Ryan Carroll, a 28-year-old man who won a contest to meet the Breaking Bad cast at its September finale, has been arrested on drug dealing charges.

A raid on a home in the San Carlos Park neighborhood in Fort Myers, Fla., let to the arrest of Carroll, who was taken into custody on felony charges.

He got popped for possession of synthetic narcotics and a misdemeanor charge of allegedly keeping a shop or vehicle for dangerous drugs, CNN reports.

Not small-time quantities, either. As the warrant was served, neighbors described a swarm of police cars and dozens of officers descending on the neighborhood.

Sounds like a certain TV show Ryan is a fan of. He won a national contest to meet the stars of Breaking Bad in L.A. prior to the AMC hit's series finale.

"It's just so addicting," Carroll said at the time he won the big prize. "It's such a good show. I think it's addicting because people can relate to the main character."

It is that time once again, THGers. The time to unveil the finalists for, and eventually the winner of, THG's prestigious, arbitrary, 7th Annual Celebrity of the Year honor.

Between now and the end of 2013, we will be counting down the 10 stars who provided us with the best moments, stories, scandals and entertainment value.

We kicked off the countdown earlier with a smoldering Kate Upton at #10. Now we present our Celebrity of the Year Finalist #9 ... Walter White!

Strange as it may seem to put a fictional TV character on our year-end list ... this is not your average TV character. There will never be another Walter White.

Developed by Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan and portrayed by Bryan Cranston, Walt (and later his Heisenberg persona) became iconic.

Once a promising chemist and co-founder of a multi-billion dollar company, we first met Walter as a meek, nerdy, down on his luck chemistry teacher.
