Episode 83: Athlete Cartoons

This week, join Jonathan as he celebrates the Mike Tyson Mysteries and all the previous athlete cartoons Tyson sends up each week. In this episode, Jonathan discusses 1977’s I Am the Greatest: The Adventures of Muhammad Ali, Mr. T (1983-1986), and Pro Stars (1991). What is it about the athlete that makes us want to see him in a cartoon environment? Why do we so readily make nonsensical cartoon spinoffs of beloved television characters? These answers and more on today’s new episode.

This week, enjoy an encore presentation of episode 05 where Jonathan, Andrew and Steve discuss and have fun with depictions of 1960s youth culture on television including clips from The Monkees, Dragnet, and Star Trek: the Original Series. The trio also discuss growing up as a re-runs generation in the 1980s depicting culture from twenty years prior. Also the tension between depicting social change that had very real stakes in a muted, rounded-off sharp edges, Hollywood style. So, decide which Monkee is your favorite; brace yourself for a Joe Friday lecture, and get out your Vulcan lute, because it’s time for some Spock Rock!
