    What A Cartoon! - Tiny Toon Adventures "The Return of Batduck"

    What A Cartoon! - Tiny Toon Adventures "The Return of Batduck"

    We're heading back to the world of Acme Acres to explore a proper episode of the early '90s classic cartoon, Tiny Toon Adventures! And if you listened to our episode of What A Cartoon Movie! about the direct-to-video feature, you'll know that Plucky Duck is by far our favorite character. That seemed to be the opinion of both Warner Bros. and Fox, because in 1992 he got his own cynical Saturday morning spinoff that consisted of mostly recycled content. But the single original episode produced for The Plucky Duck Show remains one of TTA's finest outings, and stands as a fascinating look into the Hollywood hubbub of 1991. So join us as we explore the hilarious and lavishly animated exploits of Tiny Toons' wacky, egomaniac-y duck!

    What A Cartoon! - Goof Troop "Nightmare on Goof Street"

    What A Cartoon! - Goof Troop "Nightmare on Goof Street"

    Thanks to the generous support of patron Alex Irish, this week we're exploring some uncharted Disney Afternoon territory via Goofy's very first TV show! Disney had done action and adventure with their afternoon cartoons before 1992, but with Goof Troop, they created their very first animated sitcom. And though this series went through quite a bit of development hell, it ended up redefining Goofy and Pete for a new generation—and let two brilliant actors totally own these roles to this very day. On this week's podcast, join us a we explore an episode that highlights the very entertaining dynamic between Goof Troop's two animated dads: "Nightmare on Goof Street."
