One very brilliant Human Being decided to create the ultimate mashup and gifted the Internet with the perfect "Community" meets "Arrested Development" video.

The YouTube user's description says, "In 2006 FOX ended a cult comedy sitcom's run in its third season. In 2011 NBC 'benched' a very creative and smart cult comedy sitcom. Let's hope history does not repeat itself."

NBC benched "Community" when they announced their midseason schedule back in November, replacing it with "30 Rock." While in the 8 p.m. EST timeslot, "30 Rock" pulled in series low numbers, with Nielsen ratings in the low 3 million area, proving it wasn't a "Community" problem, it's a larger timeslot problem.

Meanwhile, "Arrested Development" is making its own comeback -- on Netflix. The entire original cast of the quirky comedy -- Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, Jeffrey Tambor, David Cross, Michael Cera, Portia De Rossi, Tony Hale, Alia Shawkat and Jessica Walter -- will be back for the new season on Netflix, according to writer Dean Lorey.

The current plan is for a 10 episode series for Netflix followed by a feature film. Series star Bateman confirmed the news shortly after it was announced in October.

In case you need to refresh your memory, watch the "Arrested Development" opening credits below. "Community" makes its triumphant return to NBC on Thurs., March 15 at 8 p.m. EST.
