Episode 97--Cows Have Teeth. Like Totally...

In this episode we talk of bovine anatomy, Lovecraft, Saturday morning cartoons, Art Order, and numerous other disparate topics.

If we're talking oldschool cartoons, I think a very manly british original series must be mentioned:

Bo-Starr and the Champions of Galastrom - rare scene

and of course the rather brilliant (and less known) TV adaptation of Watchmen.

Saturday Morning Watchmen Opening

Happy to hear the latest episode. Stratos is the bird dude on He-man. I'm really thinking about a commission from Patrick (that would be awesome.) Unfortunately I too am an artist, and it might be a while before I can pony up any monies for it. I think there might be some irony in there somewhere.

Oh, and by the way I think this may have been my second favorite episode ever.

Good entertaining episode folks. Funnily enough I was finishing off my Eowen and the Nazgul painting while you were talking about the challenge. What's really funny though, is that I'm in the UK and the same age as Socar, but I'd never seen Noggin the Nog, but I've just been flicking through the TV and it's actually on right now on BBC4! It looks very quaint...

Stratos!
Yes! I remembered at like 2 in the morning after the show was recorded. LOL
Just on e of those things. ;)

Totally all over the WatchMen animated cartoon.
I am so hoping that the Comedian gets that kiss! The lovable scamp!

Gordon-either you are confirming Socar's assertion of the existence of this show--or are conspiring with Socar on some grand practical joke!

Either way, it sounds like a gem of childhood viewing. :)

In fact, Noggin the Nog might predate me significantly. My family didn't have a TV, when I was growing up, so I heard about Noggin the Nog via my father, who pretended he'd made it up. He also claimed responsibility for Captain Pugwash. It wasn't till YEARS later that I found out both of these had been TV shows.

I'm not sure if my father was deliberately pretending to have invented these characters, or if I simply assumed they were his creations. But I had no way of discovering otherwise.

Reminds me of Dr Evil's little account of his upbringing from Austin Powers: '...My father would womanize, he would drink, he would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark.'

Hey Jeremy! I didn't check out the comments from this episode (I suck!) but it's great to hear you're thinking of spending your hard-earned bucks on me. Thanks in advance..! :)

And glad you liked the episode!
