As we describe it, this is the '8th grade lit paper' of cartoon podcasts. It involves a deliberate investigation to what makes old cartoons tick, and a healthy respect for digression. Also eggs.
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
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
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
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
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
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.
