Episode 131: Cartoon Crossovers

Twelve laughs a year?  You think THAT'S bad...

Twelve laughs a year? You think THAT’S bad…

This week’s episode is all about Ben and I geeking out over cartoon crossovers. What happens when two or more of your favorite cartoons pals meet? Well, hopefully something good, but usually not.

The appeal of a crossover should be simple enough to understand. It’s a chance for popular characters to meet and share the spotlight. It’s like watching two of your favorite shows simultaneously. It’s a chance to mix and match styles of different universes to play off of one another. But usually what happens is that one half of the crossover will assume the lead and the other will simply be along for the ride. Sometimes there’s no chemistry and no reason is ever given for the crossover to have occurred. And sometimes, crossovers fail because the hype surround a crossover becomes so great that the people making it forgot to tell a story.

In any event, Ben and I talk about some of our favorite and not-so-favorite cartoon crossovers that have happened over the years.

Episode 88: Don Bluth

Don Bluth

Legendary animator Don Bluth

Don Bluth, American animator. Some people revere him as an icon of quality animation in the 80s and 90s, while others say, “Huh, I thought that was a Disney film.” Regardless, Don Bluth’s movies are beloved and cherished, in spite of some of their flaws.

Joining us tonight is The Chu of Slightly Damned as we talk about such Bluth projects as The Secret Of NIMH, An American Tail, Dragon’s Lair, All Dogs Go To Heaven, The Land Before Time, Rockadoodle, A Troll In Central Park, Thumbelina, Titan AE, and more! Plus we talk about some of the fever dream sequels, such as Feivel Goes West (no seriously, American Tail 3 writes it off as a dream!) and all of those shitty Land Before Time direct-to-video sequels.

By the way, this was just a few days prior to our appearance on TGT Media, which we mention briefly on this show. After you’re done listening to this episode, you should hop over there and listen to our interview.
