  1. Was “Chip and Dale’s Rescue Rangers” the last song by The Jets? It’s extremely catchy, I know that much. The Disney Afternoon had some killer theme songs.

    Shame on eclectik for throwing shade at Gargoyles, it was one of the better and mature shows of the 90’s. It had long-running story arcs, their characters were allowed grow and we saw their depths, constantly referenced everything from history, Shakespeare, and mythology, touched on serious topics (Racism, the futlity of revenge, etc) without being heavy-handed (keep in mind this was all in the 90’s, where the soft music would start playing whenever there was a “MESSAGE!!!!!!!”), not to mention terrific voice acting, terrific writing, and complex and interesting villains (David Xanatos, Thailog, Demona, Macbeth, the Weird sisters, and Oberon).

    All in all, pretty dope tv show. Sorry if I went overboard, I’m a huge fan of Gargoyles and anything Greg Weisman is connected with.

    P.S. in terms of bad disney cartoons from that era, you forgot about the Mighty Ducks cartoon and Quack Pack (the huey, dewey, louie cartoon where they were living with Donald, but there was no Uncle Scrooge.)

    Listened to this one today. Brought back some great memories! I loved the Disney afternoon.

    For me it goes 1) DuckTales 2) Rescue Rangers 3) The Rest. I watched all of them but it was mostly DuckTales and Rescue Rangers. Those were my 2 favorites by far. Love those NES games too. DuckTales is one of my absolute favorite NES games.

    TOTALLY forgot about the Junior Woodchuck Guidebook too. Hilarious!

    Great, loooong episode guys! A really fun listen and thanks for the shoutout at the end there! 😀
