Today's show is an experiment: We're discussing a cereal that none of us ever had and a show that one of us never saw! Luckily, YouTube helped us out with the show, but the cereal...well...let's hope for a revival. What is Norman, and why is Cory so averse to human-named cereal? Listen and find out!

We keep the live-action train going this time as we discuss a little-remembered Saturday morning show featuring Benji, the dog that owned our hearts in the mid '70s til the mid '80s. This show actually holds up kinda well! Almost as well as Fruit & Fibre cereal held up to scrutiny from the health nuts out there. How well, you ask? Listen and find out!

Can Dirk the Daring save the princess? That all depends on your supply of quarters!! The gang discusses Dragon's Lair, based on the cutting-edge laserdisc arcade game! But first, they get all adult-y and talk about a healthy (???) cereal: Raisin Bran! Actually, the healthy part depends on which brand you buy. Listen and find out why!

"DID I DO THAT?" - Yes, yes you did. You gave us a strawberry and banana flavored cereal named after one of the most annoying characters this side of Jar Jar Binks. In the early 90's, Urkel-mania was EVERYWHERE, even on the cereal aisle. Is this one best left to the dustbin of history? Probably. What about Saved By The Bell? It's practically an institution, but should it instead be locked away in a vault, never to b...

Morning Funnies was a neat idea for a breakfast cereal, but it doesn't seem that anyone thought ANY further than that when producing it. Listen to the crew bemoan this fact, but first hear what Olivia thought about the latest in the Little Debbie line of cereals. THEN, the main event, PEE WEE'S PLAYHOUSE!!! Does this show hold up to a more "mature" audience? Only one way to find out!

This week the crew tackles something new: A live-action Saturday Morning "Sitcom"...or maybe it should be sit'com" since the situation part is obvious but the comedy...well, we'll talk. But first, let's talk about a cereal that's Just Right. At least, that's the name of it. Is it really just right? Listen and find out!

The crew discusses just how generic a cartoon can get with The Gary Coleman Show, but before that they discuss the wisdom of centering a cereal around a character from a movie that is 40 years old. How do they REALLY feel? Listen and find out!

What's small, has a tail, and lives in the crawlspaces of your house? No, nothing that creepy, just The Littles!!! Finally, a show that might have actually held up since the 80s! But first, the crew discusses a knockoff of....Kix? Body Buddies....Jeff likes the box and....that's kind of it.

This time out, we discuss another in the "Kid version of older characters" genre of Saturday Morning shows with Pink Panther & Sons...although it should just be called "Pink Panther's Sons" because Pinky rarely appears. Just like actual writing and humor. But it looks pretty. But before that, we tackle a cereal that was around for decades that few remember, Product 19. Shocker, Jeff remembers. AND as a bonus...

Did anyone else know that Betty Crocker tried her hand at breakfast cereal? These both sound DELICIOUS, so why don't we still have them!?!?! Oh yeah, marketing blunders. Oh well, at least we still have Eek the Cat, which is quite possibly the strangest Saturday morning cartoon of all, even moreso than Space Cats! Don't believe us, listen and find out!

Who was that masked man? Not who you think! It's the OTHER one. This time out, the crew discusses the New Adventures of Zorro, as well as Zorro's origins and the fact that he was Batman before Batman was Batman! But first, they discuss their shared love of Waffles and Jeff's dismay at never having experience Waffleos in any variety.

Everyone loves Scooby Doo, but WHAT IF instead of a dog, it was a talking dune buggy? There were lots of drugs going around in the 1970s, folks. That's the only explanation for Speed Buggy's existence. But we're happy for it, because it's a fun show. Orange-flavored cereal, not so much. Quangeroos is yet another attempt by Big Breakfast to get us to accept citrus in our cereal box. Was this attempt any better than ...

We Yabba-Dabba-Did!!! We went Prehistoric Muppet Babies and watched the Flintstone Kids! Did it ROCK our world? Listen and find out. But before that, join us as we speculate why Rocky Road cereal didn't quite work the way it should have!

We're going back to the wacky '70s again and we're getting smaaaaaall as we discuss Inch High, Private Eye. Jeff is still confused about the comma. And before that, we talk about a cereal that should have been a cartoon instead, FREAKIES!

In our ongoing quest to figure out why every pop culture phenom in the late '80s and early '90s got a cartoon, the crew watched Kid 'N Play and....yeah, we still have no idea. But we DO know that we wish Teddy Grahams cereal was still on shelves. Listen to find out why!

This is a very special episode, because we're discussing a cereal and a cartoon that NONE of us are familiar with. Only Jeff remembers the S.W. Graham commercials because he's weird that way. SpaceCats was a listener suggestion and we can't believe we had never heard of it! Join us and learn all about some new stuff!!

Remember in the '80s when there were a lot of cartoons based on properties that really WEREN'T kid-friendly? Yep, still happened in the '90s. This time out we're talking Tales From the Cryptkeeper because what kid doesn't want to be moralized to after being scared out of their wits? But first, let's talk to Sugar Bear about one of the all-time classic cereals: Super Golden Crisp. Er, Golden Crisp. Er, Sugar ...
