Podcast for 05/09/08 - Gummi Bears

You lot get an early update today. Woohoo!

We did things a little differently today. The first half hour is all music, which means that those of you who wake up with The Saturday Morning Cartoon Show got an extra snippet of time to relax and groove before having to follow a plot. We think you enjoyed it. ;) After that, we went right back into our normal format and brought you a couple of nifty little episodes of Gummi Bears, complete with Gummi Berry juice and a whole mess of none-too-bright villains. What more do you need? 

Well in this case, we're all quite lucky, not only because the voice work fantastic, but also because this show is one of the most well written cartoons ever to grace our screens. It's clever, funny, cohesive, and the characters are allowed to develop beyond their intended archetypes. It's gratifying on a number of levels, which is one of the main reasons it's remained so popular over the years.

I know that the first three seasons of the show were released in a set a couple of years ago, but I don't know the status of the second. I'm sure you guys will be able to find out lickety split if you've an interest though. :)

You won't want to miss next week's episode, as we'll be delving into the wonderful world of DangerMouse, the cartoon, not the producer. If all goes according to plan, we'll even have an episode featuring one of our favorite fearless fowls, Count Duckula himself. All in all, it looks to be an awesome month, so I'm sure you'll be back for it all. In the meantime, don't forget to vote in the new poll and enjoy today's show!
