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:

Episode 84: Robin & The Dreamweavers

Robin & The Dreamweavers

So much worse than we could have ever imagined.

Yes, it’s here at last. Robin & The Dreamweavers. The darkest chapter of the Lou Scheimer legacy. This “movie” was brought to you by man who gave us Fat Albert & The Cosby Kids, Groovy Goolies, Faux Busters, Pinnochio & The Emperor of the Night, He-Man, and She-Ra. As it turns out, this isn’t a movie at all, but rather a very poorly made premium channel pilot. Much like the Gen 13 pilot, Robin & The Dreamweavers was doomed to a fate of obscurity upon completion. (That is, until the internet set it free!)

We’re joined this week by Kittyhawk and Trevor Jay. We had to steel ourselves to power through this thing. A couple of us didn’t make it. But for the most part, we’re unscathed.

By the way, please send in your Naga laughs! HO! HO! HO! Information at the beginning of the podcast.

The following screen shots were color corrected, because the DVD transfer is really bad and washed out. The actual DVD looks like shit.

Oh well. At least he didn’t try to pick her up in an elevator.

Episode 74: Spider-Man Through The Ages

60's Spider-Man

Wait... What the heck is he swinging from?!

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!?!??

Spectacular Spider-Man

Again I ask; considering how far up he is, what exactly is he swinging from?

Episode 69: Defending The Crapman

The Crapman

The correct title card

Yes, dear listeners. It’s here. Episode 69. And not a single naughty joke about it anywhere. We let you down.

Fortunately, today is the day that you get to hear the showdown over The Crapman! Richard (just Richard) comes down from Canadia to defend Sam Register’s baby. We attempt reason. After a while, Tom Revor even steps in. It goes three-on-one for a while.

Nearly two hours of us judging the show by its demerits.

Episode 38: Reboot and Heavy Metal

In today's episode, we blow up a doll house!

In today's exciting episode, we blow up a doll house!

Today’s very special episode of Animation Aficionados is a 2-in-1! We had two episodes with a short running time, so we just smooshed them together.

In the first episode, Fes of Webcast Beacon joins us to talk about Reboot, the first ever totally CGI program produced for television. Part way through the show, JT from Saskatoon joins us to give the kanuck perspective on this Canadian production.

We then shift gears completely and talk about Heavy Metal and Heavy Metal 2000, side-by-side! Hal Hefner joins us for the second segment as we look back on an awesome movie and its mediocre sequel. We talk about awesome music, hot chicks, and exploding doll houses!

The Cast of Reboot

Reboot's character modeling may have been cutting edge for its time.


No, this isn't a scene from a bad PlayStation game.  This is actually from Heavy Metal 2000!

...But was it really any better than this?



...or this???
