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

Ghostbusters

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!

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!

I shall punish you!

I shall punish you!

This week, we’re joined by Kittyhawk and Abby Lehrke to talk about Sailor Moon!

Yes, after many weeks of giving it the stink eye and pulling my hair out, it’s the Sailor Moon episode. Normally, I can clean up the audio and present you with a pristine podcast. But, one of our recorders failed, so I had to default to the Skype recorder and using other recordings to fill in some of the mess.

For the most part, it sounds okay, but you’ll notice some crackling and background noise. I tried my best.

Bonus Episode: More Sonic Stuff


This is the true and original Sonic.  All other Sonics after this are invalid.

Due to a busy week and poor planning, the Animation Aficionados have taken the week off. But we still have a podcast for you. We have the remainder of our conversation with The Chu as well as an extended version of our reactions to the Sonic fan film, which was released after we had recorded the last episode.

Yes, it’s just us complaining for over an hour, but your reward for this is Stardust Speedway.
