Ep 159: Cartoon Fancast

June 26, 2017

This week's episode is a total departure from anything we have every done before; we did some fancasts.  We revisited a bunch of cartoons we have discussed and cast them with real actors.  Sounds easy, right?  Well, Dave loves doing fancasts but Sean has never done one until now.  With over 160+ cartoons to pick from, what will the guys decide should be on the big screen?  What cartoon would you pick? 

Will Dave ever get a live action Gargoyles movie?  Will Sean cast himself as actor Paul Dano?  (answers yes and definitely)  All of this and more on this week's episode of the Saturday Mourning Cartoons podcast!

Ep 158: Dragon Ball Super and Samurai Jack

June 19, 2017

June casual conversation means that every day is a "casual Friday" where we talk about cartoons around the SMC office.  This week we are getting into two similar yet very different cartoons; Dragon Ball Super and Samurai Jack.  One show really puts the emphasis on battle and doing with it takes to beat your opponent, and then other has a constantly grumpy Vegeta.     So, grab your favorite flip flops, tank top, and shorts, cuz we're getting extremely casual.  Wait. That was too casual.  Come on, really?  Please, there are other people around!  No?  I'm calling HR. 

Will Dave ever charge up his Ki to unleash a Turtle Destruction Wave?  Will Sean travel into the future only to have a leaf make him feel guilty? (answers yes and definitely)  All of this and more on this week's episode of the Saturday Mourning Cartoons podcast!

Ep 157: Steven Universe and Attack on Titan

June 12, 2017

Continuing with our different format for June, Sean and Dave are talking about current cartoons that they've been watching; Steven Universe and Attack on Titan.  These two shows actually have a lot in common - 1) strong coming of age story, 2) a hero learning to use new powers, 3)  and story with a lot of foreshadowing.  Yes, Steven Universe and Attack on Titan are almost the same thing, despite the gruesome nature of AoT and the fun loving emotional tone of Steven Universe.  You could almost do a mash up and have Attack on Universe?  Steven Titan?  All of this and what's inside Eren's dad's basement are discussed and revealed (jk, it's probably a VHS tape like in SU's Lion 3 - Straight to Video).  

Is Dave a Titan with noodley arms?  Is Sean really a Crystal Gem like a Spinel?  (answers probably and he only wishes!)  All of this and more on this week's episode of the Saturday Mourning Cartoons podcast!

Ep 156: History of SMC

June 5, 2017

What have Sean and Dave gone back to watch?  Over 3+ years, are there shows that clicked with our co-hosts so much that they have dedicated time and energy to enjoy them even after it's been revisited, reviewed, and ridiculed?  This week Sean and Dave take a walk down memory lane and discuss some highlights and also why it's hard to review material, even when it's been out for a couple decades. 

Will Dave have to write a review about this particular episode?  Will Sean be able to able to say "remember" instead of "'member?"  (answers: no, and yes)  All of this and more on this week's episode of the Saturday Mourning Cartoons podcast.

Ep 155: Spider-Man (1967)

May 29, 2017

We are back with more radioactive spider blood this week and a catchy theme song to boot!  *twap* We are finishing up Marvel May with the original animated series of the wall-crawler in all of his psychedelic glory.  A couple confusing things - 1) Peter Parker sounds A LOT older than a teenager, 2) Some of these villains are not canon, 3) season three was considered to be "too influenced by drugs" thanks to Ralph Bakshi.  This original cartoon spider-man has some high points when the villains are relatable but what does the SMC gang think of the ice men from Pluto?  or the footage taken from Rocket Robin Hood?  *twap* 

Will Dave have the next part of his life directed by Ralph Bakshi?  Will Sean be able to understand when things are not canon?  (answers yes, and absolutel not)  All of this and more on this week's episode of the Saturday Mourning Cartoons podcast.

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.
