Have you ever wondered what would happen if some animators threw Dr. Seuss, Edgar Allan Poe, and Sweeny Todd into a blender, and then figured out exactly how much they could scar children in 15 minutes? Well, wonder no longer. We’d like to (re)introduce you to this insane episode. Join Chelsea, Andrew, Miles, Freaky Fred, and Courage the Cowardly dog, as we wade through what would happen if a nightmare left a bad taste in your mouth and called it cartoons.
Thank you for being a friend to LGBTQ+ folx since the 1980s, “The Golden Girls”! Andy and Chelsea jump feels-first into the world of smutty cowboy movies, crappy clown sundaes, and romantic widow bonding. Join us for a deep-dive into all these topics — plus a discussion a few ways FRIENDS could have dealt with shit better (it’s related, we promise).
What’s better than one Jaleel White in an episode of TV? How about THREE? It’s season 9 of FAMILY MATTERS, and this is basically a sci-fi show now — but date auctions still bring out the worst in everyone. Join Andy and Chelsea as we navigate the turbulent, confusing, and sometimes infuriating waters of this sitcom, desperate to find a safe port from the shitstorm.
The Beave is at it again: repeating things verbatim to the wrong people, messing around in the yard with Larry, and befriending creepy drunks he meets on the sidewalk. But he’s not the only one with “troubles” — Wally’s imaginary girlfriend is mad at him, and The Parents Cleaver are locked in a silent, vague battle of wills. There’s a lot going on under the surface of “Leave It To Beaver.” Luckily Andrew and Chelsea are here to dig it all up and scrutinize it mercilessly.
It’s time for DJ and Kimmy to attend their first frat party — at the only frat in the world that kicks you out for drinking beer. Whose remembrance of the evening is correct? Which of the girls was actually beset with hunks, and which ended up on reject row? Alcohol clouds the memory, so we’re here to break it all down for you. How will these BFFs (best friends forever) survive becoming BFFs (bitter fucking foes)? And how on earth could Kimmy have forgotten the entire inciting incident of this show? You’ll have to listen to find out.
It’s All Dudes On Deck when baby sister Joanie Cunningham starts *gasp* smoking cigarettes on HAPPY DAYS. Now that she’s a member of The Magnets, nothing is too grown up for this sixteen-year-old. Join Andrew, Chelsea, and literally every man in Joanie’s life as they try to tempt her back to the side of health in the 1950s, using 1970s logic. It’s a *cough* smoooooth ride.
It’s Christmas in May at Hugging and Learning! We dive deep into the charmingly ambiguous world of Arnold et all as they discover the true spirit of the holidays through a gut-wrenching story of war and family separation. Cartoons are fun! Our Very Special Guest Jonathan House joins us for the maximum twists and and turns and emotional payoff that Nickelodeon ever packed into a 24-minute show about nine-year-olds. Join us, won’t you?
Are the teens of the 80s legitmately concerned about the state of the world they’re inheriting, or are they being brainwashed into angry zombies by this “silly fad” of punk music? You think you know, but you have no idea, man. Join Chelsea and Andrew as they follow the adventures of a rogue medical examiner and his reactionary girlfriend into a world of outrage, slamdancing, murder, and good old ‘ludes. When they’re around, every room is an emergency room.
Even more KIM POSSIBLE goodness with Very Special Guest Mary Chieffo! Let’s do this!
Call us, beep us, if you wanna discuss Kim Possible with us! Join Chelsea, Andrew, and our Very Special Guest Mary Chieffo to discuss the Kim Possible TV movie that taught us many valuable lessons: don’t trust good-looking men, dating is harder than saving the world, and all robots will eventually turn on us. Whether you ship Kim/Ron, desperately want to know Dad Possible’s first name, or don’t actually know what any of this means — you’ll love this episode and our chat with Mary.
