Episode 14: Children’s Television

The Four Wheel Chairs of the Apocalypse

The Four Wheel Chairs of the Apocalypse

We’re joined by Ben’s friend Rob this week as we talk about cartoons for the kiddies. We digress a lot in the episode, so bear with us. If you don’t mind having a good laugh, though, then please enjoy. In spite of the subject matter, this show is probably not appropriate for children.

Show Topics:
Structure? What structure?!
The “it’s just a cartoon” mentality
Writing up to children rather than writing down
Spongebob Squarepants
Ed, Edd, & Eddy
Rugrats and Klasky Csupo
Disney ruined Doug
Pepper Ann’s theme song SUCKS!!!
Neil wants Toonmaker’s Sailor Moon pitch reel on Blu Ray
Miyazaki needs to embrace technology
Preachy cartoons
Teddy Ruxpin is scary
Too much juice
Excel Saga… Wait, WHAT?!?!!?

Bonus Round: This week on Destroy All Podcasts DX, Jeremy and company talk about one of Neil’s favorite movies, The Secret of NIMH. It’s an 80-minute film, by the way.
