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. EVEN MORE. It’s a hot mess and we haven’t even talked about THE PRESIDENT OF THE DAMN UNITED STATES (at the time) INTRODUCING THIS THING.
The whole episode is bananas. Watch it on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hz1UaEVyoo. I’d like to say don’t watch it because it’s terrible, but Gina actually thought it was okay, so who knows? You might like it.
Give us an iTunes review, why don’t you? We’ve been at this for more than two years now and we feel like there are people out there who want – no, NEED our voices in their lives. Help us reach out to them. And thanks for listening!
