Stopping by this week is our old pal Kittyhawk of Valkyrie Yuuki and special guest Zuey from Destroy All Podcasts DX. Our topic is My Little Pony and Jem! Yes, to conclude our Sunbow spotlight (for now), we’re talking about the girl cartoons. Keep in mind, we could have talked about Robotix, Inhumanoids, or Big Foot & The Muscle Machines, but we decided to spare you guys some torture.
We talk about a lot of fun stuff, like the different generations of Ponies, later iterations of MLP that you may not (and should not) remember, and how the My Little Pony movie manages to be even more of a toy commercial than the Transformers movie. Speaking of which, My Little Pony: The Movie demonstrates why you should never mix animation from AKOM and Toei. Don’t do it!
We talk at length about “Rescue From Midnight Castle”, which might actually be one of the most badass things that Marvel/Sunbow ever produced. It’s a shame that the quality of MLP dropped so rapidly afterward.
And at the end of the show, stick around, because we have some bonus animation talk with our guests about obscure shit that you may or may not have heard of. One of our listeners requested that we get Robin & The Dreamweavers. Funny enough, we were already talking about that before the request was made! And guess what! Kittyhawk is going to get it for us! OH NOES!!!!
