We’ve brought the family together for a special holiday celebration! I’m joined by Raina Telgemeier, Dave Roman, Anne Drozd, and Zack Giolongo for a discussion about one of our favorite specials ever, the 1987 Muppet Family Christmas. The greatest Muppet crossover event in history!
Puppets aren’t cartoons, you say? We could argue that, but the spirit of the season suggests we put aside arguing and just, as I always say…enjoy!

One of my favorite things is talking about cartoons with friends. That’s why I love being a part of the Saturday Supercast podcast! Every episode we break down what we love (or don’t) about cartoons new and old. We just posted an epic 2-parter about Transformers: The Movie which was tons of fun. If this movie was a big part of your childhood as it was for us, I think you will enjoy giving our show a listen! And of course, you can subscribe on iTunes if you dig it.
Do you like hearing people talk seriously about cartoons? What about 80’s cartoons? Well, the Saturday Supercast is back with a new episode all about boys who grew up loving cartoons marketed to girls. Nowadays that’s not a big thing because we’ve grown as a society…but the 80’s were a dark time! But at least the cartoons were pretty rad (and filled with a ton of scary dragons). In this episode I team with Jerzy Drozd (Comics are Great) and Shawn Robare (Branded in the 80’s) and we talk for 2 whole hours about the original My Little Pony, Strawberry Shortcake and Jem. We can pretty excited at times and even break into song. Our enthusiasm for The Misfits (are their songs better?) knows now bounds! Does that make us Brony’s? Boycakes? Jem and the Manograms? Or just three guys who appreciate things that are awesome? Decide for yourselves by checking out the podcast! Oh, and if you like the show, spread the word, and let us know what cartoons you’d like us to analyze in future episodes.
Jerzy Drozd & I have started a new podcast called Kids’ Comics Revolution! And we were fortunate to get some awesome promo art by Raina Telgemeier!
I was told by the production team that this was the jolliest episode yet, so it just may be the perfect thing to watch/listen to while you’re enjoying the upcoming holiday.
