Podcast for 03-29-08 - Aaahh Real Monsters

Afternoon all! The sun is shining and even though there's a bite in the air, it smells like spring and that makes for a happy DJ Muppet. You know what else makes me happy? Aaahh!!! Real Monsters. Since that was our cartoon this morning, you can imagine the nifty little mood I'm in.

The Saturday Morning Cartoon Show - 03/29/08 - Aaahh!!! Real Monsters

As you'll hear during today's show, this is one of the cornerstone cartoons from the world of Klasky Csupo and a classic even amongst the greats of the early Nickelodeon years. Funny, smart, and sweetly dark, each episode remains an exciting gem fit for all but the extremely young and uncomfortably squeamish. Another treat to be found in this week's show is an appearance by legend-in-his-own-mind lounge king Richard Cheese and his band Lounge Against The Machine with their version of the Spiderman theme. We've brought you many a cover of this timeless ditty, but none quite so swingin' as this.

We'd also like to welcome our new listeners from across the country and around the globe. :) There are so many of you! We're glad to have you and hope we amuse. If you like what you hear, please pass us on to others so that the cartoonery can spread like an anvil loving virus of fun. We're also giddy to take requests for future shows in the comments section of the blog.  If you prefer your blogosphere automated, feel free to help yourself to our RSS feed, conveniently linked to several popular readers in the list to your left. Enjoy!

P.S. One little reminder about next week: this Wednesday is the first Wednesday of the month and that means it's time for DJ Muppet's Playhouse. Chock full of WIDR music for kids of all ages, you'll be able to download the podcast Wednesday by 10 pm EST at The Stagedoor Blog.
