In this week’s episode, Brandon, Eric and Liz will identify their favorite cartoon ducks and learn to accept carrots of all colors! They start with a breakdown of the latest Nintendo Direct, from Dreamland mechs to papery disappointments, then pull up their sleeves and really dive into the controversy surrounding the english localization of Fire Emblem Fates. After the break, they’ll learn how those mid-season fixes for The Muppets turned out and enjoy a great, big, SPOILER-FILLED Zootopia discussion. Oh yeah– and answer a few listener emails!

    Congrats and welcome back Eric!
    Please stop thumping the table and saying “literally” every other sentence.

    A New 3DS costs $200 new and $150 used at GameStop, so not “like $300” also they aren’t all generic handhelds. At the Prado GameStop I ended up getting the cool as hell Legend of Zelda New 3DS (yeah I upgraded and gave my 2DS to my fiancé)

    The SNES E-shop thing isn’t as huge as people are making it out to be. If you don’t want today $8 to have it on your New 3DS then don’t buy it. I got Pilotwings and FZero.

    The Metroid bait and switch with Federation force is similar to what they did on the DS with Prime Pinball and Prime Hunters. I guess they don’t remember the totally awesome games they made on GBA, it’s very disappointing.

    With all this carrot talk I really wonder if Eric is a produce based super villain.

  2. Yay, Eric’s back! And here’s a carrot fact. Orange carrots were manufactured through years of breeding. Carrots were naturally purple, yellow and white.

    (I don’t know why that’s a fact I’ve held onto for years. I also paused the podcast to type this so sorry if I’m just too late with this.)

  3. 1) The trumpet player member of Electric Mayhem was named Lips. He is/was performed by Steve Whitmire.

    2) In regards to the changes of Kermit’s character, I actually enjoyed the parallel that Steve Whitmire added to the character. Steve Whitmire did this awesome Lecture tour about 5-6 years ago called “The Sentient Puppet” (He did one of them at the Center of Puppetry Arts in Atlanta, it was one of the coolest things I ever went too). And part of it he talked about was creating and maintaining the character of a puppet to the point that people don’t really regard it as a puppet, but as a living thing. He even talked about how when he initially took over performing Kermit that all he was doing was just his impression of Jim’s Kermit. But even like how they changed Pepe and Uncle Deadly and a bunch of other small characters, that was also to keep them interesting. They hafta do the same thing with Kermit, obviously.

    This doesn’t say that I wouldn’t love to see a classic Kermit freak out again though…..Hopping Mad if you will.

    3) I also totally agree about the first The Muppets movie…..I can give or take walter…..but I honestly just feel like Jason Segel figured out a way to put himself into his Muppet Fanfiction. Muppet movies that have Celeb cameos are often very funny, but when the Humans are more important that the muppets. Thats when things start to falter. Look at the IMDB for that movie……Jason Segal is listed at the top of the cast……Not Kermit.

    This is starting to sound like advocacy for equal rights for puppets…..

    …….also I really hate that stupid “Man or Muppet” song

    ……Also, I’m happy for the new Muppets show……mainly because they aren’t trying to save a theater anymore…….almost every movie is about that in some fashion.

    Zootopia was great. Idris Alba was great. The Mr Big scenes were some of my favorites. And I had the luxury of no children in my theater when I saw it.

  6. I often feel like i live in my own, crazy, little bubble world, but I will never understand why people think Tangled was more successful storytelling than Frozen. I think people just let their distaste for the merchandise sour the rest of the movie for them. I won’t write a dissertation (though i probably could, if goaded), but even the simple difference of how the princess’s resolve their respective problems, Frozen is far and above better handled. I was pleasantly surprised at how Disney altered their own ingrained definition of what “True Love” means in Frozen, and allowed Anna to actually have agency in solving her dilemma. Rapunzel cries magic tears for no reason. When I saw it in theaters, there were siblings sitting next to me, and the younger one confusedly asked the older why that happened. The older one answered mater-of-factly “Because she’s the princess”.

    The triumph of Emperor’s New Groove was hiring Mark Dindal to direct it. That dude has great, Looney Toons-esque comedic sensibilites.

    Tudyk also played that Tony Stark looking motherfucker in Big Hero 6, since you guys definitely forgot that movie existed. Zootopia makes four in a row, and I’m just glad people are giving that guy work again.

    Also, i’m pretty sure there’s not a human alive who doesn’t/wouldn’t have a crush on Tom. and I definitely can’t watch Rick and Morty without picturing Zack and Tom, respectively.
