Episode 10: The Kaboom of Doom

Anyone notice that kaboom rhymes with doom?

This month we return with not only the newest movies we’ve watch so far (for two months anyway) but also our first animated trilogy! And it was pretty good apparently. It’s Kung Fu Panda 1,2 and 3. Will there be a fourth? The world may never know.


Show-notes:


2:52 Little Panda Fighter is another animated movie about those lovable black and white bears. Except the panda in LPF actually isn’t lovable at all. But hey, at least he has some sick dance moves.
5:19 Full interview with director John Stevenson here. John Stevenson is one of the most normal names ever by the way.
8:08 And you can read about their hilarious adventures here.
9:31 Yeah, that was the link above. In the months since we recorded this, I’ve tried to come to terms with the fact that I’ll never appreciate those noodles, but I couldn’t. It’ll haunt me for the rest of my life. Or something.
15:53 Pandamonium! Get it?
17:55 Full interview with Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger. Yup.
26:35 A bit about the development of Kai from the third one.
28:42 More about how KFP 3 was a Chinese co-production.
31:34 Lol.

Episode 6.5: Style is Socks with Sandals

To be honest, however, socks with crocs are even higher on the style scale.

This month Kiyan and Dylan try to find something in the X-Men universe that they can get done in a week, because procrastination is the way of the future! So they turned to Pryde of the X-Men, a pilot for an ultimately unmade animated series. It was written by Larry Parr and was aired on September 16, 1989.


Show-notes:


1:13 Robocop: The Animated Series ran between October and December 1988. It was animated by South Korean studio AKOM, the same company that did the 1992 X-Men series.
1:46 I can’t explain it. Just watch the ad yourself.
6:30 Toei animated the first two seasons of the original Transformers show. Later episodes were animated by AKOM.
15:45 Here’s the link. Again. I will definitely might actually remember the difference this time around.

Episode 112: Totally Wizard

Wicked is a totally wizard musical. Wait a second…

This week Kiyan and Dylan jump a time track and end up in a parallel universe where Shada was finished with some animation. Wait no, that’s this universe, sorry. Well listen in to Douglas Adams’ final script, which would have (presumably) aired in January through March of 1980.
