SHARE THE SHOW!
Hoo boy! You thought things were strange before? GI Joe was the shallow end of the pool. We’ll be coming back to some of the many other iterations of GI Joe, but we’ll also be bringing guests with the weird cartoons from *their* childhood. This week it’s Heather Woodward - writer and co-star on The Elite Daily Show! She brought us something we’ve been eyeballing for a while. It’s an anti-drug PSA from 1990 featuring an unholy mashup of characters: the Muppet Babies, ALF, Garfield, Winnie the Pooh, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (just Michelangelo, the narc), Bugs Bunny and even more. ...
It’s the final episode of the main series and we’re going out like we came in: by mocking Ray! Plus we go through every graduation song from Gina’s very specific 1998-2003 period as she tries to get us all to commit suicide. The series is done, but we’re soldiering on! What’s next? Find out next week! Like, subscribe, review, and all that stuff! Thanks for listening!...
Started from the bottom, now we’re here on the Roof of the World! Lady Jaye’s come prepared with a Thanksgiving dinner javelin, Roadblock’s contribution is endless references (we think) to his dick, and laser hockey! Plus! Talk of swinging makes Ray wildly uncomfortable, Gina imagines G.I. Joe as a CW show, and Chan doesn’t understand how selling off the third piece of the Weather Dominator makes any sense when all three pieces are required to make the silly thing work. We’re almost done with the entire first series! You can find all the missing back episodes on our Patreon as well...
It’s part three of The Revenge of Cobra and we’ve got three exotic new locales! The Island of No Return! The Top of the World! And the eponymous Palace of Doom! We deal with unfortunate nicknames, racist cats, how easy it is to become a Joe and Ray gets unnecessarily excited over GI Joe robots. Plus, Chan waxes philosophical on the nature of American ninjas and Gina’s into the tender budding romance of giant snake robot and stone god statue. We love hearing from you, so review us on iTunes or post on our Facebook page. Thanks for listening!...
It’s episode 2 of the second original G.I. Joe miniseries and what would an original G.I. Joe miniseries be without an Arena of Sport? It’s back along with a bunch of other cockamamie goodness including energy-reflecting mirrors, some epic-level Destro laughs, and the introduction of Shipwreck! All this plus we learn that G.I. Joe is just fine with leaving a man behind, Chan questions the validity of sandboating on skis, and Darude? Like, subscribe, follow, and donate on Patreon to hear why Rubik, the Amazing Cube blew our damn minds. Thanks for listening!...
Special guest Nicole Villela takes us back to a magical time where bloated celebrity egos were best stroked by turning them into strangely unwatchable children's cartoons. Yes, the '90s!Bruno the Kid stars a pint-sized version of Bruce Willis who also happens to be a top-notch secret agent, but really it's just an excuse for Willis to continue his "blues" career. Yes, those air quotes are intentional, though opinions differ on whether what he plays can be considered "blues" or if, in fact, it is the death knell of the entire genre.We're in Egypt! France! The Orient Express! And Detroit...
The Revenge of Cobra! It’s the second mini-series and the last five episodes of the original episodes, so buckle up. Ray swears this is the best version of the theme song, but nobody cares because Gina is busy trying to touch her elbows behind her back. Destro’s Weather Dominator explanation is word salad (you know - that thing that Ray does) and we debate the necessity of adding creeper vines to your chaotic pits. Like, subscribe, donate, follow, and review us on iTunes please! Thanks for listening!...
The final episode of the first mini-series! We’re back after Chan’s vacation and Ray’s new jobs and Gina mumbled something about butts, so we’re not sure where we are, but on with the show! This episode contains a number very strange sounds which you can hear with your ears. The internet also contains a number of very strange images which you can see with your eyes, but as you will hear, we urge you not to. Please do not because eventually you will google yourself to a place you DO. NOT. WANT. TO. BE. Anyway, Destro’s a dummy, Scarlett and Selena throw down, and we have a pitch for...
In honor of one of the all-time greats, we're posting our Patreon episode of Batman: The Animated Series featuring Adam West. "Beware the Gray Ghost" is a brilliant take on the career of, arguably, the most self-aware comic book icon ever. Rest in POW!er, Mr. West....
Another one from the vault! Will Chan and Ray's love of wrestling overcome the rather suspect quality of this blatant cash grab? Will Gina be able to get over the weirdness of the brother from "Everybody Loves Raymond" as Hogan? Does the Pope shit in the woods? The answers are in the podcast!Um ... if you don't want to wait, the answers are "no", "no", and "no, but he did whizz in a urinal...
