The Worst of Tom & Jerry
Nothing says Halloween like terrible Tom & Jerry cartoons!(???)
Yes, we’ll be talking about the Filmation Tom & Jerry Comedy Hour as well as Hanna Barbera’s Tom & Jerry Show. We’ll also mention Gene Deitch and “The Karate Guard”.
Strangely, we never mentioned the movie. Perhaps that’s for the best.
New Sailor Moon vs original Sailor Moon
Better late than never, right? This episode was recorded all the way back in July and got delayed for reasons that are no longer clear.
As such, a lot of what we say may no longer be relevant. We had a lot of criticisms of early episodes, and I can’t say if any of our criticism have been addressed, because I haven’t watched it since then.
That said, joining us for this episode is Abby Lehrke and Kittyhawk!
And now, the cavalcade of derp faces!
Confession time. With episode 122 of Animation Aficionados, we jumped the gun. We mourned the loss of Saturday morning, but we didn’t actually realize that this year would mark its official death. This past Saturday, there were no major networks running cartoon blocks. It’s dead. It’s finally dead! You maniacs! You blew it all up!
So join Ben and myself as we retread this topic. It’s truly a sad time to be a child of the 80s. We’ll miss you Saturday morning.
We had some good times. Waking up at the ass crack of dawn. Setting the VCR. Eating shitty cereal. Oogling at the toy commercials. And most importantly, consuming the very worst that Hanna-Barbara, Ruby-Spears, and Dic had to offer.
This is not your regularly-scheduled Animation Aficionados. This is a relief for anyone who’s been following the gaming press drama that’s been going on since late August. We’re not going to talk about that. Instead, we’re going to shift focus to video game reviewers that we like.
These are all YouTube guys. I might provide links later, if anyone is interested. For now, most of the noteworthy ones can be seen in the videos below.
