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!

You made it!  We are at the final episode of our Mecha March Madness month with special guest - Dr. Shannon Davies Mancus!  We are bringing out the big guns in our finale with Code Geass and Zoids Genesis!  Code Geass is an alternate history anime that has a splash of the Carolingian age mixed with (not so subtle) references to Orwell's 1984.  Zoids Genesis is the same dopey Zoids show that you've come to know and love! 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.

March 13, 2017

Second week of our March Mecha Madness month continues with Robotech vs Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam.  Robotech (the Macross Saga) is three separate anime that have been cut together.  Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam is a boring entry into a series that many people love.  How will they pair against one another?  What will be the result of this year's tournament? 

Will Dave discover that he's three separate anime series mashed into one person?  Will Sean stumble while piloting a Gundam and write an apology note?  (answers - yes, and absolutel not)  All of this and more on this week's episode of the Saturday Mourning Cartoons podcast!

Get ready for the best bracket of your life!  In March, we pit two shows head to head each week!  Last year we tackled "Pocket Monsters" and Pokemon came out on top.  This year, we're bringing you "Mecha March Madness Month!"  To kick things off, we have Ninja Robot vs. Gurren Lagann!  

Will Dave trade-in his "underground smock" for some side boob action?  Will Sean attempt to explain to a cop why he's in possession of a firearm while drinking under age in a bar on Mars?  (answers: a resounding YES to both)  All of this and more on this week's episode of the Saturday Mourning Cartoons podcast.

Ep 142: James Bond Jr

February 27, 2017

Bond. James Bond...had a kid. Let's all be very clear.  You heard us!  We're all lying to James Bond Jr to allow James Bond to avoid paying child support.  This is crazy.  We're 99.99% sure that you can't have an "junior" suffix for a name if it's NOT a direct child, right?  We're now very confused but not as confused as a weird smattering of people that are enrolled at the Warfield Academy. Relatives of Q, Felix Leiter, and the actual Buddy Mitchell; this cast of characters is insane.  The villains are even more crazed because it's a combination of Captain Planet villains and the villains from Bond movies. 

Will Dave end of break curfew in order to navigate his flying car off campus?  Will Sean get a tatto of 003 1/2 on his arm? (answers: yes and yes)  All of this and more on this week's episode of the Saturday Mourning Cartoons podcast!

Ep 141: Big Guy and Rusty

February 20, 2017

This cartoon starts with a lie.  Not just a lie to one or two people but a lie to the entire world except for a handful of military personnel.  The US government has been lying to us about the BIG GUY.  That's right.  He's not a huge robot but rather, it's a robot suit that is worn by a pilot.  A human, honest to goodness, flesh and blood human being, who is tasked with the awesome responsibility of protecting the world.  The nerve!  The treachery!  The idea of decommissioning the Big Guy?  What happens when you scrape one military defense program for another that is...a little too childish, perhaps?  We find out what happens when the Big Guy teams up with Rusty the boy robot for one hell of a patriotic ride. 

Will Dave ever come out of his giant robot suit for the show?  Will Sean overload his emotional circuits?  (answers yes, and nah because he's a robot)  All of this and more on this week's episode of the Saturday Mourning Cartoons podcast!

Ep 140: GI Joe Sigma Six

February 13, 2017

GI Joe is a sacred cartoon in the ancient halls of the SMC podcast.  These General Infantry Soldiers are in the upper eschelon of cartoons that is reserved for animation that has defined our childhood.  We understand that reboots will happen and we look forward to seeing our beloved childhood nostalgia with a new coat of paint.  Or in this case - a new coat of paint, mecha suits, a castle rocket, and the world's WORST game of chess!  Oh, and spoiler - GI Joe becomes a terrorist organization?!  It's all very confusing.    

Will Dave eat something gross like Tunnel Rat?  Will Sean EVER be able to hack the Cobra Firewall?  (answers: yes and no way Jose)  All of this and more on this week's episode of the Saturday Mourning Cartoons podcast.
