I think the Flintstones is a good one to cover since it's the big prime time animated sitcom that influenced so many other things cartoon and otherwise. Could do a split episode with 80s trash, the Flintstone Kids.

All the turtles talk in this week's Talking Simpsons and I can't believe they haven't done TMNT yet. They could make it a theme month with all the reboots and the movie, not to mention that Japanese OVA or the movie.

There's so many wierd shows from my childhood that would be great episodes. poo poo like Turbo Teen, Dinosaucers, Kidd Video, Dungeons and Dragons, Captain N, all sorts, that if I had the money I'd subject Bob and Henry too. Even good things like Pirates of Dark Water. The well is truly bottomless.

Anyone else have cartoons they want the WAC crew to dissect and discuss?

I would love to hear them do a regular WAC on Bakshis Mighty Mouse and then a movie episode on either Fritz the Cat or Coonskin.

The Turtles Forever crossover (in which the 2003 TMNT team up with their 1987 counterparts) was fantastic and I'd love to hear them talk about it, although the drama that prevented the original 1987 VAs from returning is souring me a bit on it in hindsight.

Outside of the Hanna-Barbera stuff I mentioned, Reboot would have been at the top of my list if they hadn't just covered it. I also hope they do Bojack Horseman eventually, even if I know Bob has mixed feelings about watching it. In a similar vein, Tuca & Bertie would be great.

As far as movies are concerned, I'd love if they did one of the Asterix movies. Twelve Tasks was my favorite as a kid, though Cleopatra is a close second. It'd also be really interesting if they did Yellow Submarine, though that one seems unlikely to win any Patreon polls (in addition to barely having any plot to cover at all).

The three cartoons I wanted to see the most on WAC were all actually covered in the last few months and it's still blowing my mind a little.

I figured ReBoot would have come up sooner or later just for its historical position as one of the first all-CG tv shows. Utena is really good anime, but between the abundant stock footage, the dense allegorical nonsense, and the very distressing abuse themes, it's a hard loving sell. CyberSix is the show I never thought would make it in. It's twelve episodes, it's a weird Canadian/Japanese/Argentinian collaboration and I think fifteen people watched it. The original comic was so obscure I could only find it in French and I think it ended on a cliffhanger. And the creators are both dead. So I'm not getting more of that literally ever.

Anyway, now that the top three shows on my wish list made it in, I'm going to suggest only really weird poo poo that I'm not sure existed, or anyone liked.

Or weird poo poo from the National Film Board of Canada. One of the cable channels used to have a late night show that was just compilations of weird Canadian animated shorts. Some of it was just, like, cute cartoons but some of it was really experimental mediums like sand-on-glass or it was the artist exorcising their own personal demons onto a film strip. I watched it when I was pretty young and it probably hosed me up a little.

Anyway I said that so I could post this:

Like I've said before, I honestly just want them to watch the bad stuff. I just want to hear them suffer through everything that launched during the second cartoon boom in the early aughts, the stuff that everybody threw at the wall following the success of South Park, Family Guy and Adult Swim. I want to experience some kind of...sympathetic drift misery, about two decades removed from when I would watch any of those new "edgy" cartoon for at least a few minutes.

Barring that, I dunno....Doug? Doug is a show that sits firmly in a place where I watched it every day for about 2 years in the 7 PM rerun spot on Nickelodeon, to the point where you could describe any episode to me and I'd have a vague recollection of it - yet in hindsight I ask "Why did I ever watch that show?" It's a show about a nerd with social anxiety, which seems like it would be relatable...but I always hated Doug; nobody was watching Doug for Doug. Add the weird angle that Doug is literally the Only White Man in this entire world that he lives in, and suddenly there's a new layer to this crap. Still, I carry an odd nostalgia for it, plus I'd love to hear a two-parter where they breakdown what happened between Doug and Disney's Brand Spankin' New Doug. (I only remember watching one episode of Disney's Doug; it involved a scene where Doug turned the tables on his Dad by giving him The Sex Talk. I said "This is not the Doug I know" and didn't revisit it.)

Oh, Canada on Cartoon Network. I think that ran Sunday nights, either before or after ToonHeads, the show where they'd run three shorts with an animator/director/voice actor in common, with little trivia interstitials. What Oh, Canada taught me was that animators all over the world are kinda weird.

I don't know what could be said about the Battletech cartoon from the 90s, but I'm sure Henry and Bob would find something.

Or maybe Bots Master, but I don't think there is anything to be said about it.

Or more Charlie Brown specials! According to wikipedia there's two other Christmas-related specials (It's Christmastime Again, Charlie Brown, which I knew about and saw maybe 3 minutes of, and Charlie Brown's Christmas Tales, which is completely new to me), but I say go for the deep cut and do It's Arbor Day Charlie Brown.

Oh! I just thought of Digimon. There's likely no shortage of Internet people with Digimon opinions that they could have as a guest, too. The first and third seasons would be the obvious ones to cover, though I hear the new reboot is already way better than it has any right to be.

Though I recognize it's...not good, I watched it a LOT since it was paired with Clone High. Bob and I went down a deep Undergrads hole one night and the backstory behind how it got made is actually pretty interesting. Too bad he'll never agree to cover it on WAC. I will make him watch a full ep one of these days though.

Along those lines, I want (demand) Bob and Henry to locate and recap an episode of Murder Police, the animated series that Sean wrote for after Allen Gregory, and that Fox cancelled before it even aired. There are 13 fully animated, 22-minute episodes of the thing, never broadcast anywhere, existing in that same cartoon limbo as David Spade's Sammy. (I guess Disney owns it now, meaning it's even less likely to be found.)

You should feel ashamed.

The podcast Cancelled Too Soon covered Tuca and Bertie fairly recently. They covered several cartoon shows that WAC has done (Bucky O'Hare) and a few that would be right up Bob and Henry's alley, like the Star Wars Droids cartoon. They cover shows that lasted one season or less and I think fans of WAC would enjoy it.

I've been watching along with Mission Hill, having never seen it before, and so far there's been a 50/50 split on which episodes I end up loving and which ones not so much. That's still a much better batting average than the Critic, though, which I just couldn't get into when they had it as a miniseries.

And either way, if you hate it, the good news is that once the miniseries is over, that'll be it for Mission Hill.

Going to be honest, my reaction to Mission Hill was starting up the first episode before listening to the first podcast, watching for five minutes and not laughing once, and very confusedly stopping the episode and not going back.
