Tonight’s episode is dedicated to the Hanna-Barbera explosion of the 70s. Hanna-Barbera’s output ballooned exponentially during this period. They became the undisputed kings of Saturday morning. There is so much content from this era that it alone was enough to fuel the early days of Cartoon Network and later Boomerang.
Joining us tonight is the always delightful Kittyhawk, artist and writer of Sparkling Gneration Valkyrie Yuuki. For seventy minutes, the three of us sit and compare notes from our favorite cartoons from this era. There is so much that we each brought stuff to the table that nobody else had heard of.
We talk about:
Cartoons based on sitcoms
Wait Till Your Father Gets Home
The Roman Holidays
Blue Falcon & Dynomutt
Help! It’s The Hair Bear Bunch!
The Pebbles & Bamm-Bamm Show/The Flinstone Comedy Hour
Captain Caveman & The Teen Angels
You jumped over some of my buses!
No wonder Kittyhawk calls this the drug era.
Hmm… This setting looks familiar!
Well, at least Hanna-Barbera kept its star roster active. Even if it was in the Laff-A-Lympics.
This week, we’re joined by Space Captain Steve of Blade Kitten and Hal Hefner of Heavy Metal’s Gates, as we talk about Spider-Man through the ages! We go over pretty much every Spider-Man animated cartoon ever made, and even some of the live action ones. We talk about all incarnations of Spidey, Peter’s love life, and our ideal production of Spider-Man.
In a bonus round, we’re joined by 1UP’s Bob Mackey, where we make a discovery of something that was overlooked in the main part of the show. Could this episode be…TO BE CONTINUED!?!??
Again I ask; considering how far up he is, what exactly is he swinging from?
This week in Animation Aficionados, we’re talking about environmentalism in cartoons. What’s good. What’s not. What’s downright condescending. It’s all here. So get out your Planeteer rings, cut up some soda can rings, and dig out your NiCad batteries. We’re giving a shout-out to Mother Earth!
Hitler's mustache is SO OFFENSIVE, that they turned him into Triple-H.
