Episode 103: The Disney Afternoon

Disney Afternoon Gang

The Disney Afternoon Gang

Hey! We’re here again with The Chu from Raizap and Rick from The United States of Geekdom. We’re talking about the Disney Afternoon. We’ll be going through the block from its earliest inception all the way to when it fell apart. It’s eighty minutes of us talking about furry bait characters, chipmunks dressed like Magnum PI, and Jim Cummings.

Next week, we’ll have a special Black Friday episode. Don’tcha dare miss it!

Episode 93: Cartoons Based On Fighting Games

Street Fighter II Movie

Admit it. You got it for the shower scene.

Tonight we have JT from Saskatoon joining us on our first ever Live Broadcasted episode! And what do we talk about? Cartoons based on fighting games!

Surprisingly a lot of American productions in this list, but it’s still mostly anime. We again talk about the horrors on USA Cartoon Express while mostly trying not to repeat ourselves. But as bad as that was, some of the anime ain’t much better. I even mention my all-time worst anime experience on this episode.

Topics Covered
Jiggly boob characters
The Ambigously Gay Duo
Chun-Li’s shower scene
Jobbing Cammy
They found Captain Winkie
I like turtles
The Derrivery Guy!
Learn what a succubus does!
Conveyor belts – Obobo’s only weakness
Kevin Nash can’t move
Street Combat – secretly a Ranma game
And lots of help from the chat room!

Voltage Fighter Gowcaizer

A fucking ugly ass anime with the worst dub track I have ever heard!


What is happening in this scene? Why are these cartoons drawn so badly. Goddammit, USA Cartoon Express!!! I thought you were cool once!

Double Dragon

Touching swords.

Episode 83: The Simpsons – Side-by-Side

The Simpsons

The Simpsons

Tonight, we talk about America’s favorite disfunctional family, The Simpsons. Joining us tonight is Mike “TFG1” Blanchard of the Geekcast Radio Network, as we do a rather unorthadox side-by-side, comparing the first half of The Simpsons versus the second half to determine which is better.

The Simpsons is the longest-running animated prime time show. Over 20 years after it first hit the air, it’s still going strong. But has Simpsons hit its stride? Is it past it’s prime? Is it time to take the show behind the barn and put a 22 in its temple? We discuss this very issue on this week’s edition of Animation Aficionados!

“Hi, I’m Troy McClure.”
Homer is the real star
Continuity in-jokes
Holding off Seth MacFarlane Domination

Deconstructing Itchy & Scratchy
Ray Romano compared to Snuffaluffagus (and nobody makes an Ice Age reference!)
“The real gold is in Weekend At Bernie’s 2!”
The greatest center square of all-time
John Lovitz atones for The Critic
Did Mike make a sodomy reference??!?!
Vegan Shaggy
Lisa, go to your room!

Episode 81: Gargoyles

I love Star Trek reunions

I love Star Trek reunions

Tonight we talk about Gargoyles, the action series created by Disney that the Mouse doesn’t know what the heck to do with. Co-created by Frank Paur and mostly written by Micheal Reaves, it is a good, solid series, if not slightly overrated by fans. We are joined by JT from Saskatoon to go over the particulars of this series.

Topics Covered
Ok ok, Greg Weisman helped too… I guess.
13 Backdoor Pilots
Star Trek Reunions
Japanese Episode to Japanese animators? Put the spurs to it!
The Green!(amigo!)
Ethnicity Not Important!
Let’s see, our organization needs hoods!
Greg always going back to Gargoyles

Episode 78: My Little Pony & Jem!

My Little Pony

Ah, girls entertainment in the 80s. Pastel and sparkly.

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!!!!
