Take a snickering shaggy dog blended with a mild mannered TV detective, add some cartoon villains who are over the top even by Saturday morning standards, and let them do battle for about seven minutes a week, and you get this Hanna-Barbera semi-classic! Before Mumbly joined the ambitious crossover Laff-a-Lympics, he made a name for himself amidst …
 
It had to happen eventually, and with two of the American voice actors coming to the convention we're affiliated, now was the best time to look at the original animated adaptation of Akira Toriyama's inescapable action franchise. Specifically we dive into the first two episodes, establishing the unusual start of the friendship between Goku and Bulm…
 
CH Greenblatt presents Jellystone! A perfectly calm, coherent and pedestrian cartoon where nothing ever gets destroyed and nobody does anything remotely insane. Nope... not at all... you're not buying it, are you? Seriously, the Hanna-Barbera characters make their triumphant return in this HBO Max series and our hosts couldn't be happier.…

He's the chief, he's the king but above everything he... bombed in prime time?! Given the lasting legacy of Top Cat and his crew, which includes multiple appearances in other HB shows, a pair of feature films in Mexico and South America, and much more, it's a surprise his original run was only one season. Pemmy and James explore why this series has…

Putty Puss, Mussel Mutt, Ding Dog, Rhubarb, Sparkplug and Stutts. This Saturday morning toon's basically forgotten, and that's kinda rough! When WB vets Friz Freeling and Bob McKimson team up with Scooby Doo creators Joe Ruby and Ken Spears, they came up with this series best explained as Top Cat meets Mission Impossible in the late Wild West perio…
 
Don Bluth's laserdisc games helped keep arcades interesting for just long enough while the console side of video games was going bust, and Ruby Spears capitalized on it with the Saturday Supercade series on CBS. Space Ace was one of seven total games adapted into this anthology series, and it's... not great. It's a mild sight better than some of th…

The boys and girls of Termite Terrace created hundreds of memorable cartoons, giving life to characters who are a part of our history and heritage. Even characters like these in today's podcast, who only had one appearance to their name during the run from 1933 to 1964. Guest Billy D'Ettorre joins us as we look at the one hit wonders "Horton Hatche…
 
"Here he comes, here comes Speed Racer, on the P&J show!" Imagine some of the crazy things we'd see in the cartoon we covered last time (Wacky Races) played completely seriously, except hampered by one of the wildest Japanese-to-English dubs ever outside of the likes of Prince of Space, and that comparison is NOT a coincidence! It's our first foray…
 
And away they go! Two of the least daredevil daffy... umm... there's nothing alliterative that describes podcast hosts. So much for that gag. As you're about to hear, Pemmy and James LOVE the Wacky Races cartoon and much of its legacy which rings through Hanna-Barbera's work following its run on CBS. And much of it is due to a mustachioed do-badder…
 
Boldly going where no TV series had gone for roughly three or four years, Filmation and Paramount reunited Gene Roddenberry, DC Fontana, William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy and much of the rest of the Star Trek team for this two season Saturday morning production. We've got "sterile" Tribbles and angry serpentine would-be-Gods aplenty, with special gues…
 
Practically falling into the laps of Friz Freeling and David DePatie, the Pink Panther was the brainchild of Blake Edwards and gave theatrical short subject cartoons one last grand hurrah before disappearing into the realm of being financially unviable. Cooler than the entire cucumber section of a grocery store on the North Pole, the Panther would …
 
Isis "Now You See It..." October 16, 1976 ​Rick is accused of stealing a top secret weather control device and it's up to The Super Sleuths to prove his innocence.

Can Captain Marvel and Isis ensure this film makes it to the screen while keeping the young Spielberg safe? It's the final episode of the Shazam! serie…
 
Girl Power! Yes? No? Maybe? It's a little complicated when boy toy tropes arrive on the girl toy aisle, especially smack dab in the middle of the 1980s. Filmation and Mattel tried to straddle the line with She-Ra, Hordak and their assorted supporting castmates, in this spin-off of the wildly popular He-Man toyline and cartoon. Pemmy and James break…
 
With an all-star cast of voice acting legends, wild ghost designs and out-there ideas for stories (including some by J Michael Strazynski!) this cartoon that followed on the heels of the 1984 movie was a resounding hit on ABC and in syndication. Pemmy and James look at some of the stranger episodes from the second season, “Chicken, He Clucked” and …

We're tired of talking. We want to hear from y'all -- the people who really made this iteration of She-Ra something special. About a dozen and a half really incredible, thoughtful, open listeners send us audio recordings that tell their own story about how She-Ra, the Princess of Power has better helped them find acceptance, create art, understand …

As we near the end of our podcast, we wanted to put a nice bow on our time covering She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, and fortunately, Dreamworks was down to help! In this, the first of two Twitch streams we're calling the "Exit Interviews," we've got a bevy of guests from SPOP ready to answer burning fan questions like "could Angella be alive?" …

Flashback Week ends with a very special episode (at least to one of us) -- Eric's favorite piece of Hemanimation, the 1984 classic "Into the Abyss," a super early look at what a character-driven story might look like for our favorite Twins of Power. Then we circle around to a wider discussion of nostalgia, criticism, and pushing cultural narratives…

Our tour through He-Men of the past continues with this stop in, uh, the future to check on the origins of Mara. In Dreamworks' She-Ra she was an unforgettable character -- were the '90s as kind? Probably not. If anyone's curious, you can watch "Save Our City" here but, uh, that's your choice to make.…
