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 73: Tiny Toons vs. Animaniacs – Side-By-Side


There's baloney in our slacks!

This week, we record with 1UP.com’s Bob Mackey to explore Animaniacs and Tiny Toons. One was groundbreaking, creative, and hilarious…and the other is Tiny Toons. We discuss the impact of both shows, their strengths, their weaknesses, and which one ultimately comes out on top in the end. If you’ve been listening to this show for a while, then you probably know what we’re going to say about Tiny Toons…but you should listen anyway!

Tiny Toons... just little versions of better cartoons

Tongue Two Three

Kennedy Cartoons did this. No, it doesn't look any better in motion.

Here’s “The Looney Beginning,” which is actually one of the better-animated episodes of Tiny Toons. In fact, these are the best results that they ever got from Kennedy Cartoons.

…But watch as this episode of Animaniacs completely outpace it in every way.

Also, check this shit out. This is the guy who played Wakko.

This is the most maddening thing you’ll ever hear…

Episode 45: Movie Toons

Kylie Minogue oiled up and dressed as Cammy!  RRRRROOOWWWRRRR!!!

Thank you, Kylie! We love you! Thankfully, they never made Street Fighter The Animated Series - The Game.

JT from Saskatoon joins us again to talk about movies that got turned into cartoons. Sometimes you just can’t rake in enough with lunch boxes, coloring books, and flame throwers. You’ve got to throw in the obligatory cartoon adaptation. Cartoons based on films aren’t as common as they once were, but back in the 80s, you could scarcely make it through a Saturday morning without seeing at least one.

The REAL Ghostbusters
The Addams Family
Street Fighter
Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventures
Dumb And Dumber
Ace Ventura
The Mask
Back To The Future
Teen Wolf
The… Warrior King?!??!
…and MORE!

Teen Wolf

Teen Wolf! Comin' out to play!

Warrior King in Street Fighter

A crossover connection between Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter?! Yeah! Believe it or not, this guy made a very brief cameo in the Mortal Kombat cartoon, as you'll see in the very next image.

Nothing is sacred.

Episode 32: X-Men vs X-men Evolution – Side by Side

Sentinels at their absolute stupidest!

"It appears to be the Ace of Spades!"

This week, we’re joined by Geekcast creator and Evolution-denier, TFG1 Blanchard. We compare the original X-Men animated series to the more modern X-Men Evolution. We challenge our guest to make an argument in favor of the 1992 series.

Here’s a game for our listeners. Take a drink for every time Blanchard appeals to his nostalgia instead of the actual quality of the shows. You will be passed out before the show ends.

Episode Topics
“And that’s great, but…”
Only 267 awesome moments out of 52 episodes!
Not punching someone makes you a douche bag.
Having awesome horsemen is like Carly talking to Megatron. (WHAT?!)

Giant robots in purple underwear
X-Men on a boat that can’t stop. Worst episode ever.
Shockingly, not a single creationism joke from Neil.
The only card you need is the Ace of Spades! The Ace of Spades!

Episode 24 – Batman


For a generation, this was the sign that the bad ass was about to start.

Tanya Higgins of Webcast Beacon and Tom Revor of Crossworlds join us this week to discuss the action cartoon that put action cartoons back on the map in the early 90s. You know it. You love it. It’s Batman.

For nearly two hours, we wade through the origins of the Timm-Verse and all of Bruce Timm’s innovations that have since been smuggled back into the comics during a time when the face of animation was changing. You won’t want to miss this, the first in our DCAU series. Batman!

This episode is about…
Firing Tim Currey
Firing AKOM
Girls wearing men’s shirts as pajamas
Reinventing the relationship between comics and animation
Escaping Tiny Toons
Robin laid an egg

Harley and Ivy

Awwwww YEAH!!! That's what I'm talkin' about!
