Ep 154: Ultraforce

May 22, 2017

What if you were to rip off both Marvel and DC comics in an attempt to do something interesting and new?  But instead of new and interesting, all of your designs ended up looking like it came from a super hero recycling program?  AND then Marvel purchased all of you IP, attempted to merge it into their universe, and then lit your trash up in a dumpster fire?  The end product?  Well, it's Ultraforce, of course.  The fact that the title has "force" in it really hits home how "forced" this entire series actually feels.  It's essentially "Ultra-copy-paste."  Thankfully, our guest, Evan Valentine, joins us in the pain!   (The only bonus is that there is a drug episode.) 

Will Dave kick his "gook" habit?  Will Evan be able to remove his liquid flesh?  Will Sean become the new spokesperson for Ultra tech?  (answers no, no, and no)  All of this and more on this week's episode of the Saturday Mourning Cartoons podcast.

Ep 153: Black Panther

May 15, 2017

Marvel May has been pretty rough so far.  Gurdains (a reviewers spelling not ours) of the Galaxy and Wolverine and the X-men; two shows that are very polarizing and based off of successful IP.  This week we get into BET's motion comic - Black Panther and wow, does it shine as a beacon of hope for this month.  Complex plot with a multitude of characters,  brutal combat sequences, gritty imagery, and it's a motion comic?  Usually a motion comic would take us out of our focus when trying to watch a cartoon but this is done better that 90% of the cartoons we've watched.  Great execution on this show which only lasted six episodes.  

Will Dave finally challenge the Prince of a far off land during an annual combat summit?  Will Sean really get that internship in Wakanda as an IT professional? (answers yes and submit a ticket in Jira to find out)  All of this and more on this week's episode of the Saturday Mourning Cartoons podcast.

Ep 152: Wolverine and the X-men

May 8, 2017

What if I told you that we could get every single X-man and X-woman into a cartoon show?  No lie.  What if we packed every single character into one show and then told you we were going to focus on your favorite character like Wolverine.  And then Wolverine ended up being such a secondary character that by the end he was completely unnecessary?  Yeah, you'd then have Wolverine and the X-men, which should have been called Emma Frost fights to get the Dark Phoenix power for 26 episodes.  It's a show that is not to be missed (actually you can 100% skip this cartoon).  Go back and jus watch the 90's cartoon.  100% shade right now.   

Will Dave finally get Wolverine claws?  Will Sean be able to get that time share on Genosha?  (answers yes and yes, but there's a really long presentation to sit through)  All of this and more on this week's episode of the Saturday Mourning Cartoons podcast.

Ep 151: Guardians of the Galaxy

May 1, 2017

It's May and we LOVE alliteration.  Sean and Dave also love the Marvel Cinematic Universe and with Guardians of the Galaxy vol 2 in theaters on May 4, we're dedicating an entire month to Marvel cartoons.  Kicking it off is the GotG gang on Disney XD, which is a little strange because all of the characters are modeled after the live action but this isn't canon with the live action, nor is it supposed to help bridge the gaps between the movies, nor is it supposed to help you understand about Star Lord's dad but it IS a continuation from the first movie...?!  Anyone else confused by this?  So, why does this cartoons exist?  Does it retain the awesome music of the original movie?  Is there humor still there...

Will Dave find his Cosmic Seed?  Will Sean be able to defuse an implosion device? (answers: yes, and maybe...)  All of this and more on this week's episode of the Saturday Mourning Cartoons podcast!

Ep 150: The Big O

April 24, 2017

"Cast in the name of God, Ye not guilty!"  This phrase accompanies the theme song which chimes "BIG O" over and over again.  It's as if the denzins of Paradigm City forgot about the mechanical savior that navigates the ruins below their feet.  Thankfully, the always present, dashing, and Bruce Wayne-esque negotiator named Roger Smith is happy to remind everyone that he's the pilot and city's only hope.  But how will he negotiate his way out of his new client, an Android, Dororthy Wayneright?  

Will Dave every figure out what "big o" stands for?  Will Sean every be able to call the Mega Deus?  (answer yes and yes)  All of this and more on this week's episode of the Saturday Mourning Cartoons podcast.

Ep 149: Outlaw Star

April 17, 2017

We are on a journey this week (not a cruise like last week).  A jouney of extrodinary measures with an extra-ordinary cast of characters.  We're setting out aboard the XGP with Charlie Visconage to talk all about Outlaw Star.  Bounty hunters turned good guys turned bounty hunters turned protectors of the universe?  Yeah, this show is bonkers and a lot of fun.  Interesting characters, a mix of magic, and goal driven plot all bundled together in a race to the galatic leyline!

Will Dave find more Caster shells?  Will Sean conform to the group mind of the Ctarl-Ctarl?  Will Charlie ever get tao magic right?  (answers yes, maybe, and a strong yup) All of this and more on this week's Saturday Mourning Cartoons podcast!

Will Dave eat a Devil Fruit?  Will Sean launch himself into a birds mouth?  Will Alex manage to steal more treasure from other pirates?  (answers: yes, yes, and yes!)  All of this and more on this week's episode of the Saturday Mourning Cartoons podcast.

Ep 147: FLCL

April 3, 2017

Gas up your vespa, tune your bass guitar, and prep the huge bandaids for your foreheads because we're getting into FLCL or Fooly Cooly!  What does it mean?  What gives?  Why am I transitioning into a manga style while I'm writing this?  FLCL is 100% bananas and 100% fun.  It's an anime that requires you to sit back and attempt to let it all wash over you.  Under normal cricumstances, the confluence of all these random piece would NOT coalesce into a good show.  BUT FLCL manages to pull it off and does it with such style and grace.  It makes for six extremely imaginative, yet random episodes.    

Will Dave get hit in the head with a bass guitar?  Will Sean discover that he's part of the terminal core? (answer yes and probably)  All of this and more on this week's episode of the Saturday Mourning Cartoons podcast!

Who will win this round, plus, who will take home the trophy for the entire month of March?!

Will Shannon gain an awesome purple laser eagle eye?  Will Dave stop calling Sean an "Eleven?"  Will Sean ever get another shot with his 'beam tortoise?"  (answers: definitely, no, and probably not)  All of this and more on this week's episode of the Saturday Mourning Cartoons podcast!

March 20, 2017

We're at our penultimate episode for Mecha March Madness month here at SMC and we have a real brawl this week with Neon Genesis Evangelion vs Mobile Suit Gundam Wing.  Evangelion and Mobile Suit Gundam were some people's entry anime for mecha and each holds a special place in Sean and Dave's hearts.  But then comes the deciding factor as, our guest, Tony Lazzeroni weighs in with plenty of spite points.  

Will Dave mine enough "gundamium" to build his own Gundam?  Will Sean find out that a familiar soul is contained within his Eva Unit?  Will Tony get sweet sweet Deathscythe's for hands?  (answers: no cuz come the heck on, probably, and definitely)  All of this and more on this week's episode of the Saturday Mourning Cartoon's podcast.
