Episode 126: Star Wars Cartoons


The GOOD Clone Wars

The GOOD Clone Wars

This week, we’re joined by Pablo in a galaxy far, far away. We talk about a number of Star Wars cartoons, in particular Droids and Ewoks. We conclude that both were pretty wretched.

After the show, we have was is apparently an impromptu episode of Comic Connoisseurs. In essence, today’s podcast is a two-in one show, as our post show is as long as the main show. In the extended segment, we talk about our experiences as webcomic authors and spill some webcomic community dirt.

One moooooore thing:
Between the first and second segments, you’ll hear a clip in which “Bill Cosby” reads the opening crawl to Star Wars Episode 2. This is actually an old clip from DVDpodBLAST. It’s an old favorite podcast of mine, in which a bunch of mid-westerners transplanted to north Hollywood record their own alternative commentaries for some of the worst movies ever made. Nothing is scripted, and they’re funnier than Riff Trax.

There, I said it. Blasted, Riff Trax!
