    Two movies that could not be more different than one another, but somehow we found a way to thread them together. We talk about animation styles, tone, production, marketing, narrative, and a whole bunch of other things in the process of our discussion (featured image courtesy of Rob this week).

    Nothing like recording at 8am to get the ideas flowing! Enjoy this perfectly coherent variety show. I took much too long to make the featured image this week fit a theme that I'm sure nobody will get at all but it made me smile

    284 Beavis and Butthead Retrospective

    284 Beavis and Butthead Retrospective

    In this special Retrospective episode we talk about the original Beavis & Butt-Head shorts, the 90s series, that era of MTV animation, the movie "... Do America", the 2011 reboot, and of course the brand new Paramount+ movie "... Do the Universe!"
    Music and short clips have always been a part of the Beavis & Butt-head so I put a little extra time zhuzhing this one up... and a very special shoutout to Jayden Libran for providing the amazing Beavis & Butthead impressions!

    281 Pinnochi Oh No

    Clocking in at 2hrs and 40min here is our next episode which, yes, was recorded on June 2nd and since then Seth Green bought his NFT back and the Rescue Rangers movie is just a figment in people's imaginations but it's a good show if I do say so myself!
    It's the first episode we've done since the start of the pandemic in person! We'd like to know if YOU can tell the difference and also very interested in what your feelings are on getting this as one episode vs being split up into two.

Best Animation Podcast I Know

I originally learned about Stephen from his YouTube tutorials and learned a lot of tips on creating animated shorts. The podcast features amazing buddy chemistry, lots of laughs and tons of inside information on the animation world. Regularly features thoughtful discussion of life topics, work ethic and really inspiring interviews too.

Come for the podcast and stay for the monthly animation battles!

Sequel

We need a sequel to Song of the sea. There were way too many unanswered questions, cliff hangers and too much potential for them to stop at one movie, believe me!

Fantastic podcast that will make you laugh & be inspired

I'm not an animator but i love listening to Stephen & Rob. Their podcasts are just wonderful. I love how they make me laugh with their conversations and sometimes it's just random. I also love the interviews with great animators that they do. It's very inspiring.
