    What A Cartoon! - Aqua Teen Hunger Force "The Shaving"

    What A Cartoon! - Aqua Teen Hunger Force "The Shaving"

    This week, we're returning to one of our favorite Adult Swim series that always mixed horror and comedy so well: Aqua Teen Hunger Force! And for our second look at the series, we're discussing a classic Halloween episode all about Blood Feast Island Man, his missing mail, love of juice, and failed Freddy-Kruger-style zingers. Plus, you'll get to hear the guest of this episode berate one of our hosts! So sit back, listen in, and beware of unknown attic roommates!

    What A Cartoon! - Back to the Future "Brothers"

    What A Cartoon! - Back to the Future "Brothers"

    When the Back to the Future Trilogy wrapped up in 1990, the time-traveling antics of Marty McFly and Doc Brown seemed destined for an episodic TV series. And it would eventually see one the following year, though this animated show wasn't a shameless cash-in. Overseen by BTTF scribe Bob Gale, and featuring live-action segments with Christopher Lloyd himself, this cartoon offered a level of quality far greater than what could have been—even if the focus on Doc's sons hold it back. On this episode, BTTF superfan Dave Rudden joins us as we discuss the debut episode, "Brothers."

    This week is a big one as we welcome back creator of OK K.O. Ian Jones-Quartey to talk about a character close to his heart: Sonic The Hedgehog! How did the fastest thing alive really move to two different animated series in 1993? How did Jaleel White define Sega's mascot? How did Ian craft a tribute to this series in his own animation? And why are there so many wizards in this more serious story of Sonic and his friends Sally, Tails, Rotor, Bunny, and Antoine? Learn it all as we juice and jam through Sonic The Hedgehog in this week's podcast!

    What A Cartoon! - Inuyashiki Last Hero "Naoyuki Ando"

    What A Cartoon! - Inuyashiki Last Hero "Naoyuki Ando"

    Thanks to the generous contributions of patron David Whittington, we're heading back to anime country with a show that's off the beaten path. Inuyashiki Last Hero spins a superhero tale in modern Japan, but casts the roles of the hero and the villain in a completely unexpected way by making the protagonist a kindly old man and the antagonist a sullen teen. It's a surprisingly dark and surprisingly touching take on the idea of super powers, and after listening to our analysis you'll be inspired to cruise through Inuyashiki Last Hero on Amazon Prime Video!
