“The Boxtrolls” final trailer, “The Powerpuff Girls” are coming back to TV, & Netflix reboots “The Magic Schoolbus”


We have singing… we have stories… we have animation stories (this being an “animation podcast,” it seemed appropriate)… what DON’T we have?! Listen as Stephen watches the World Cup and Rob & Pat try to keep him on topic. A lot of great tangents in this episode which are too numerous to put in the annotations so just… listen. And enjoy. Listen and enjoy! Also… SHAGGY WAS A THING


(49:48)   RIP Casey Kasem

  1. The Boxtrolls looks fun, kind of reminds me of the Roald Dahl stories I loved as a kid (actually still love them as an adult). I don’t think it will be Wes Anderson-good, but the trailer is promising. Funny how so many kids movies these days seem aimed just as much at young adults on a nostalgia trip (thank Pixar for that!)

    Oh also really liked how they used Santigold’s “GO!” in this trailer, it’s been awhile since we’ve heard new music from her I forgot how much I liked her tunes.

    • Sorry I didn’t see this comment until now… I’m a contributor on here so I don’t actually get comment notifications I think. I’m curious, now that you’ve probably seen “The Boxtrolls”… what did you think of the final result vs your expectations?
