Show Notes

Our Netflix's THE TOYS THAT MADE US coverage is back and we're talking about everyone's favorite green turtle karate boys--The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! (By PLAYMATES). We also introduce a new, permanent host to the show: Blake's Soundboard. Also, Josh is here again. Head to the sewers with us and discuss the Toiletest Humor. Bring down the house with our piping hot Eugene Levy clips. Why is April O'Neil so dumb looking? Why does Blake cackle himself hoarse in this one? Really, you can hear it, so sorry about that. You know we're gonna talk #toiletgate AND #puppetgate. Josh will Ninja Rap his ass off. Also: Nostalgia vs original IP, Adam's NECA TMNT Target quest for Bebop and Rocksteady, Parasite (the movie), Ace Duck, NECA Ambassadors, NO TURTLE ON THE SHELF. Intro music PARODY by Blake Walker. Outro music: "Turtle Power" by Partners in Kryme (which is infinitely superior to Ninja Rap). Brought to you by AUX Audio Enterprises.

20. The Toys That Made Us: Transformers

What is a Transformer? These three turd boys sure as hell don't know. This TWENTIETH EPISODE also serves as our one-year anniversary AND the conclusion of our Toys That Made Us coverage (until they make new ones). Our hosts were too dumb to figure out Transformers in their youth so they were stuck with working class figs like GI Joes. At some point we go waaaay deep into childhood and ex-wife trauma as we soul search for the real reason behind our toy-buying addictions. This episode...SHELF LIFE. GETS. REAL. 2/3 of us are in therapy. Also, why do some children (and adults) lie pathologically, especially about toys? More topics: Turmoil In The Toybox returns. Was Optimus Prime saved? Ass Ventura: Crack Detective. Action Figures in the Attic. The Ballad of Lars Framness. The risk of getting Mutt. Eeyore and Peter Cullen. Michael Bay garbage movies. California Raisins. The armor of God. Tongue in Chic/Sheikh. High Beams & Cockpits. Game: Backcard Bios! **SPOILERS for Transformers: The Movie (1986) Our podcast now has a catchphrase: ONE. MORE. PUNCH. Special guest: Josh Arnett ...

35. 1 Man, 1 Muppet, 4 Life

Hey it's somewhere near our two-year anniversary of the podcast and we forgot to mention that--but have a cool new episode anyway! This time we visit Blake's Blockbuster Zone, a hot new movie podcast-within-a-podcast. Some great summer films about toys out there y'all. Warning: TOY STORY 4 TOYLERS. Also... Review of Worthy Captain America. Hasbro crowdfunded Cookie Monster and other life-size muppets. Speaking of muppets, are they a "huge turn-off"? Conan O'Brien "legally" marries his Funko Pop!s. Which toy would you marry? GLOW IN THE DARK figures! Including MOTU's Scareglow, Swamp Thing, Ghostbusters, Homer Simpson, and more! Mini Brands Chase Pez. WHAT WAS YOUR WOODY? Crash Test Dummies and Boom, My Forever Pal. Blake surprises Adam with an insane purchase of Funko's DC Primal Age Batcave and figures to boot. Or is it Savage World? Hard to say. Don't toy shop drunk. And finally, BLAKE BUYS A TOY LIVE ON AIR! ...
