The first in our final directorial mini-season of Season 3 is Alfred Hitchcock’s debut feature, the 1926 silent film THE PLEASURE GARDEN. After a couple of short reviews, we talk about why this film’s importance outweighs the extent to which it’s ‘a good watch’, representing transgression on-screen, and the way in which the film uses […]
In this episode we embrace the smoke and brew a “Rauchbier”, a big smoky delicious and malty style from Bamburg. We’re also joined by Chris MacLennan, Cal’s co-host from The Space Jam Continuum, also part of the Kaiju.fm Network.
With Daffy working as a salesman of gags and cheap tricks, Chris and Cal wonder that his angle is. Has he fallen on hard times, or is he in deep cover? Meanwhile, Sylvester tries to secure himself a place in the home of Elmer Fudd, who seems to be doing very well for himself.
Mike Harrison-Wood from By The Mash Tun joins Chris and Cal for today’s foray into the Tooniverse. Pepé Le Pew gets through an episode without sexually assaulting anybody, Foghorn Leghorn lays down the law in a run in with Henery’s grandfather, and a meeting with a genie explains the advent of Bugs Bunny’s powers.
In this oddly sincere episode, we get some rare glimpses into tooniversal politics, and finally find out the difference between a toon hare and a toon bunny. Why are insects so much more politically reasonable than the rest of the tooniverse? We strive to find out.
Chris and a sickly Cal continue their rigorous investigation into Cinecolor’s cloning program, post-war. Meanwhile, Bugs is bribed into working for the government on their first manned (rabbited? bunnied?) mission to the moon, leading to an encounter with everybody’s favourite tooniversal martian. It’s pretty great.
In this episode we use up all the little bits of leftover ingredients from other brews to make a “Pancake Beer”, a usually amber yet hoppy style that always changes (depending on what you have left). Good for those that hate waste!
osemite Sam is trying to rebuild his reputation back in the west, but when he stumbles across an old Agency meeting point, a certain Toonlord is there to meet him. Meanwhile, Chris and Cal set about investigating Cinecolor, and their WWII super soldier program. Which Hector is the real Hector? At this stage, who knows?
