Hosted by Glenn, Sam, Becca, Paula and Phil, this podcast is a virtual trip back in time to the halcyon days of our childhood - the 1980s (and early 1990s). Every week we explore at least one facet of 80's pop culture, discuss questions from our listeners, and report the news from at least 4 of the main franchises of the 80's that are still around today!
Episode 95

Where Phil spotlights the classic British cartoon Stoppit and Tidyup, the boys tackle the aftermath of Toy Fair 2012 (with some badass Transformers Generations and Encore news, not to mention the cool TMNT news), anf some of your questions are answered, including a message from the one and only, too cool for school, Sugar Bear!

WARNING: Fear contained within.

Jii joins Glenn and Phil again this week, as they discuss your toy surprises (the good ones, obviously), and because it was Toy Fair in the Big Apple last weekend, there's a bumper crop of news this week!

Strap yourselves in, get the snacks ready, and make sure you're comfy, it's gonna be a long one.

Also, prepare for the coming of the most anticipated MOTU character ever - Sir Lazerlot!
