Episode 156: The Worst of Tom & Jerry

The Worst of Tom & Jerry

The Worst of Tom & Jerry

Happy Halloween!

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.

Also mentioned:

Episode 151: The REAL Ghostbusters (…and a long distance dedication to Casey Kasem)



Hey, it’s been a while!

Today’s episode of Animation Aficionados is a dual treat. First, we have a special dedication to Casey Kasem, which, fortunately for us, will not be coming off of an up-tempo record.

Then strap on your particle accelerators, because Kittyhawk and Red Ink join us for some Ghostbusters.

The REAL Ghostbusters!

Episode 150: Food Fight!

fuck this movie

Lies. All lies.

Wow. Just…wow.

Folks, I am depressed. Here it is, episode 150, and we watched a movie so foul that it pushes both Robin & Dreamweavers and Eight Crazy Nights off the tip top of my top movie shit list and claims the number one spot. Holy shit, folks. It’s Food Fight!. And no, that exclamation point doesn’t mean I’m excited. That’s actually part of the title.

Words just cannot describe my disappoint. What a way to celebrate our sesquicentennial podcast.

Joining us this week is the constantly awesome Kittyhawk, who radiated sunshine to pierce the dark cloud cast by this movie.

Here is the original trailer for the film:

Not great, but it’s passable.

Now here’s what it ultimately ended up looking like:

And here’s the only Food Fight that will ever be near and dear to my heart:

Dear Viz! We Want Toonmakers Sailor Moon!

So, Viz put out a trailer announcing the entire Sailor Moon series, uncut, newly dubbed, and on Blu Ray. It’ll also be on Hulu.

Some people are upset that the original dub won’t be re-released. I’m okay with it. The original dub was kind of a mess and went out of its way to censor things. The only thing I’ll really miss is Molly’s Brooklyn accent. Meanwhile, everyone else will be celebrating Zoicite’s sex change back into a man and the lesbian Sailor Scouts Senshi. No more cousins!

But if I may, there’s one demand I’d like to make, and I hope Viz can comply. I want that Toonmakers pilot of the American Sailor Moon. You remember the one, right? The one with the girl in the wheel chair and the horrible, horrible 90s animation.

This one:

C’mon, Viz! Make it happen!

Episode 149: Denver The Last Dinosaur

Denver The Last Dinosaur

Denver The Last Dinosaur

On today’s panel, we have Ren from Marshmellow Surprise, and we’re talking about Denver the Last Dinosaur. We were pretty horrified by what we observed. Like most things from our childhood, it’s much worse looking back on it as an adult. And Denver is a special case, because we never thought it was a good show to begin with. Imagine our utter horror upon discovering that it’s even worse than we remembered!

Extra long episode this week. We burn out pretty quickly on Denver, so we ramble a bit during the show. And we have our usual spirited after show, where we just talk about random shit. Also, I diss Peter Criss and Ace Frehley some more. LONG LIVE THE ANKH WARRIOR!
