Bad Reception: Making the Best of Bad TV

EP17 - Bucky O’Hare and the Toad Wars

June 26, 2018

It's Bucky! Captain Bucky O'Hare!! This week we finally cover the topic everyone has been clamoring for: forgotten, short-lived, 90s cartoons inspired by the boom of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!! It's like Star Wars but with bunnies, cats, toads, and baboons! Plus robots, dimensional travel, and busty animated kitties! Plus Josh joins us to educate Morgan on the NES classic Battletoads (although it remains unclear exactly what that game was about), we get into some deep fan theories on why Bucky might be green, and ponder Neil Degrasse Tyson's thoughts on the accuracy of the show. It's action packed, sexy as heck, and has some totally bitchin' tunes!!

Cut the Shit:

Morgan - Father John Misty - God’s Favorite Customer and Brandi Carlisle - By the Way, I Forgive You

Josh - James Acaster - Repertoire  and Amy Shark - Love Monster

Mike - Event Horizon (1997)

Shoutouts: Grave Girls PodcastGood Christian Fun80s All Over, and Teen Creeps
