Toondiculous Podcast: Episode 2 – Josie and the Pussycats

Each episode, musical aficionado Dennis Harvey and I take on a beloved–or not so beloved–ridiculous cartoon from cartoon history, pointing out the crazy, the inane and the downright awful. Of course we love them too, so there’s that.

We check out Josie and the Pussycats this week, with an episode about a mad-man manufacturing ape men. The history of furries ensues.

This episode is dedicated to the hard working men and women of the small towns of America that support our delightfully mad scientists. May we always remember your dedication, in lieu of their evil deeds.


Check back next Saturday morning for a Josie and the Pussycats aftermath. How many racist episode titles can one 1970’s sitcom for kids come up with? Find out next time, on the Toondiculous Podcast.

The long awaited follow-up to last week’s–or last month’s–Dungeons and Dragons episode. From super cuts to Toondiculous theatre, we’ve got it all in a taught 15-minute package this week, so check it out.

This episode is dedicated to the hard working men and women of the Dn’D writing room. Our lambasting is all in good fun… hopefully.


Check back next Saturday morning–and it WILL be here–for the next episode featuring a fantastic Josie and the Pussycats viewing. It’s bound to be groovy, in that packaged and branded 60’s, death-of-the-dream, kind of way.

A look at the premiere of 1983’s Dungeons and Dragons, leads to some interesting questions of late adult-aged depression–onset by tabletop role-playing games–and the effect this mental illness has on our younger generations. Also, we finally take on those smug unicorns.

This episode is dedicated to Frank Welker, a king among men, at least in the voice acting community.


Check back next Friday for a mini-episode full of Dungeons and Dragons extras, such as a more thorough look at those involved in the writing process. We’ll also do a very special table reading of the last few minutes of the never produced finale to the series, which resolves all those Dn’D questions that are raging inside you, ready to be freed.
