Hosted by Glenn and his very special guests, 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 211

This week sees the nostalgia TARDIS (with full crew of Glenn, Phil, Sam and Jii) land in the peaceful serenity of the Evergreen Forest. That is, until Bert Raccoon wakes up. The merry hell breaks out. That must mean the this week's spotlight regards the brilliant Canadian 80's cartoon, The Raccoons!

There's also news of a Mattel kind, with new PR management possibly already making it's prescence felt, and new heads for your Skeletor figure, as well as all the Turtles, Thundercats (including some weird ideas for the original series) and Star Wars news!

Oh, and if you ever wondered if there were any series that have let the guys down when they went back to watch them, well, here's the place to be!
