9 | Animated Comic Series

Dallas and Rook are out of town, so Don and Al get to talk animation!! They start with the mediocre 60’s Marvel cartoons and continue with everything under the sun including 8 Man, Prince Planet, Casper, Josie and the Pussycats, The Super-friends, and popular 80’s cartoons, as well as Alex Toth’s How A TV Cartoon Is Made. They go off about Batman’s pop culture influence, and rave about the 1940’s Fleischer Studios Superman animated show. And even though Don forgot who they were, musical spotlight: THE JURY. Yet another shout-out to our boy James, and WHAT ARE YOU READING featuring Captain Easy and Ghost World.
