In the latest episode of MLP…
The Six Million Dollar Man doesn’t hold up well. Buck Rodgers takes place in Chicago. Matt never knew this. Both properties had some sweet toys.
Speaking of toys, there were a lot of toy companies that created toys and then had television shows created based on the action figure line. G.I. Joe is an excellent example. The comics were badass too. There were actually 155 issues (not the 133 Matt says). The guys talk about the Joes, Cobra and The Terrordrome.
Tom’s mother’s vinyl collection is sick. Matt and Tom riff on why vinyl records are the best and deduce that these records are worth a small, yet priceless fortune. Collecting vinyl records is a lot like collecting comics. All of these collectables feel like time travelers.
Google: Drew Struzan.
The main topic of conversation revolves around the greatness that was the Saturday morning cartoons on network television during the late 70s and throughout the 80s.
Thundarr The Barbarian, Goldie Gold and Action Jack, Matt’s distain for Smurfs, and you can never go wrong with Superfriends.
Does anyone remember The Spiral Zone?
Matt and Tom provide a breakdown of the network line-ups for specific years and more. Enjoy yourself.
