This week on Corona Cartoons Bryan is joined by Alex Orona from Super GG Radio and friend Katherine Cliff to discuss the the Macaulay Culkin movie The Pagemaster. If you’ve ever seen those posters in the library with celebrities that say “READ,” this movie is essentially that. Come for the Macaulay Culkin trivia, stay for the fun animated film that has a love for film and that really wants kids to read.
Note: Bryan also gives some updates about the show at the top of the episode and what to expect before the upcoming Frisky Dingo season.
This week on Corona Cartoons we’re discussing the Don Bluth film The Secret of NIMH, which marks his departure from Disney and the beginning of quite the interesting pivot in his filmography. If the name doesn’t sound familiar to you, the films might. From here he went on to do An American Tail, Land Before Time, Rock-A-Doodle, as well as the video games Dragon’s Lair and Space Ace. This movie is also maybe linked to our love of rats in general. A great episode and a fun discussion. We also give an update to the status of Corona Cartoons and the upcoming Frisky Dingo podcast.
Bryan’s life is slowly returning to normal, but still no new episode of Corona Cartoons this week. We bring to you in its place, After the Hype’s episode on the totally insane Batman Ninja! Enjoy! Regular episodes to return next week!
This week on Corona Cartoons we’re back on the Batman train with Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, a film that almost no one saw in the theater. Or maybe you saw it if your parents were cool. Anyway, we brought back Ben Kurstin and Chewie joined us and we had a grand ol’ time, so you probably want to check this out right quick.
**Disclaimer had some audio issues with a crunchy noise that was persistent. Thought the conversation was too good to not release, apologies all around, please still enjoy!!**
This week on Corona Cartoons: A Venture Bros Podcast, Bryan is joined by Matt Dykes, Adam Slutsky, and Ben Kurstin to discuss one of the best cartoons in recent history – Batman: The Animated Series. They all dive into what made the show so great as well as discuss the episodes “Joker’s Favor,” “Heart of Ice,” “Read My Lips,” and “Feat of Clay: Parts 1 & 2.” If you haven’t seen the show, stop what you’re doing and watch all of it, and then return and listen. If you’ve seen it…listen first and then go rewatch all of it. We don’t make the rules.
This week on Corona Cartoons Bryan is joined by Jeff Frumess to talk about two very wonderful classics: Doug & The Angry Beavers. It’s kind of wild how old these cartoons are, and yet they somehow feel like they’re only a few years old. If you haven’t seen these shows in awhile, you owe it to yourself to revisit. Enjoy!
This week on Corona Cartoons we’ve brought on Johnny Recher and Samantha Garrison to talk about Cowboy Bebop, perhaps one of the greatest anime series of all time. It’s the one show that has the ability to appeal to people from vastly different walks of life, even 20+ years on. If you haven’t had a chance to rewatch, you probably should…and then listen to us take a deep dive on why the show has the staying power it does.
Bryan pulled a real Rusty Venture and lost all the audio to pt. 2 of Clerks… HOWEVER We have a super fun episode on a show we never thought we would talk about, Rick & Morty! Emily Blake picked 3 episodes for Bryan and Chewie to scratch the surface of this animated juggernaut!
The Corona Virus means that we can’t record our Venture Bros wrap up, which in turn means we can’t quite get to our Frisky Dingo watch-through. Bummer, right? Well, not anymore, because we’re making lemonade out of a virus and doing a series about a bunch of different cartoons while we wait for this whole mess to blow over. We’re starting our “Corona Cartoons” with the Clerks animated series. Well, the first half at least.
