    158 - Bootlegg'd - A Goofy Movie

    158 - Bootlegg'd - A Goofy Movie

    Modern times getting you down? Things a bit too… serious? Well we let the
    radical 90’s adventure A Goofy Movie warp our schedule because it was just
    so freshalicious. Nic joins the cartoncasters as we look at an
    oft-overlooked piece of the Disney Renaissance that’s surprisingly
    heartwarming. So join us for the Perfect Cast.

    157 - Outlaw Star

    157 - Outlaw Star

    When Gene Starwind (yes, that Gene Starwind) offered the Cartoncasters an
    opportunity to travel in his spaceship, they jumped at the chance. They
    just had to make sure to follow the rules in order to get to the Galactic
    Leyline. What’s that? Just a space treasure sought after by the Ctarl Ctarl
    empire. Who? Oh they’re just lycanthropic fanservice elementals, not unlike
    the secret order of assassins… Needless to say, Ben and Zane opted out and
    just went to hang with Fred Luo instead.

    156 - Scrambl'd - Dr. Who: The Power of the Daleks

    156 - Scrambl'd - Dr. Who: The Power of the Daleks

    Phil gathered the Cartoncasters to his bedside. It was his time - the
    mercury fumes, you understand - and soon he would be gone. But instead of
    shuffling off to wherever it is he goes, he instead shifted before their
    eyes, metamorphizing into a brand new Phil. This one wore some atrocious
    plaid slacks, sure, and his recorder-playing wasn’t up to its usual stuff,
    but it was clearly the same guy, otherwise how could he rant about Dr. Who
    so well?

    155 - Bootlegg'd - Beavis and Butthead Do America

    155 - Bootlegg'd - Beavis and Butthead Do America

    It’s that time again, buttholes. For this very special Bootlegg’d segment,
    there’s excitement, there’s sex, there’s mystery, and all of that is an
    absolute side plot to the perspectives of Beavis and Butthead as they Do
    America. Listen in to a preamble that takes far too long and is totally
    justified, as we discuss how B&B did America.

    Unshell'd - Hunter x Hunter x Impressions

    Unshell'd - Hunter x Hunter x Impressions

    Settle down, Weebs, we didn’t do a full normal breakdown and analysis of
    the behemoth that is Hunter x Hunter (pronounced “Hunter Hunter” for
    reasons we couldn’t begin to get into). Instead we offer you a stream of
    consciousness regarding Ben’s recent watch-through (and Zane’s vague
    memories) of the apotheosis of Shonen anime.

    The Sixth Annual Cartony Awards

    The Sixth Annual Cartony Awards

    Ahh, the exalted Cartony awards. The envy of every cartoon-related
    self-aggrandizing navel-gazing podcaster for miles around. An opportunity
    to purge the bitter bile from our minds, to start another year with a clean
    slate by acknowledging the worst, best, and hairy chest of the past year.
    So take a load off, reminisce about why these cartoons am so horny, and try
    not to fall prey to the wandering kunai with chain.

The Best!

This is my favorite podcast ever! It's so fun to reminisce about old cartoons from my childhood, and Ben & Zane are always just super entertaining to listen to. Brilliant, stunning, a masterpiece. If you only listen to one podcast this year, make it The Cartoncast.
