Flopcast

The Flopcast exclusive 007 for patreon

Live from Chickentown, Kevin and Kornflake sip nasty black coffee and talk about silly & geeky things.

Frequent subjects include: Saturday morning cartoons, Dr. Demento-style funny music, TV and movies of the 1970s and 1980s, comic books, classic video games, and, uh, chickens. (We like chickens.) There’s also lots of convention talk, as we regularly attend DragonCon, MarsCon, and other nerdy gatherings. We’re frightened and confused. Join us!

Flopcast 622: Superchick Deep Dive Part 2 – We Like to Be Around

Flopcast episode 622! Let’s wrap up our review of The Krofft Supershow, a super-silly Saturday morning TV show from mad geniuses Sid and Marty Krofft. The second season brought us two weird new segments: Magic Mongo (in which a goofy genie crashes a bikini beach party) and Bigfoot and Wildboy (in

Flopcast 621: Superchick Deep Dive Part 1 – We Like to Be Downtown

Flopcast episode 621! With Kornflake away on special assignment, Kevin and the Mayor of Chickentown are free to obsess over The Krofft Supershow, a wild 1970s Saturday morning TV anthology series from Sid and Marty Krofft. Specifically we’re looking at the career of musician and actress Debra Clinger, who played Superchick

Flopcast 620 Dynamite Bummer girl with teddy bear

Flopcast 620: Cool It, Ponch

Flopcast episode 620! We’re diving back into the pages of Dynamite magazine, so we can pretend it’s still 1979. (Give it a try. Set the mood with a Gloria Gaynor record.) This randomly selected issue has Erik Estrada on the cover, and inside we learn that the CHiPs star had

Flopcast 619 Growing Pains Carol and Ben

Flopcast 619: Babble Like an Idiot

Flopcast episode 619! Short show this week! We’re sleepy. But during a quick visit to Northeast Comic Con, we find old friends, fancy nerd dice, and members of The Go-Go’s, The Cars, and the cast of Growing Pains. We also recommend Enterprisesplaining, a silly new Star Trek podcast that doesn’t

Flopcast 618 Oh Grow Up cast

Flopcast 618: 1999 TV Part 2 – Lobster Justice

Flopcast episode 618! It’s the second half of our look at every television series that debuted in the year 1999. And once again, we remember just a few of them, and only saw a couple. (Kornflake was a fan of Judging Amy, while for Kevin, this was the year of

Flopcast 617 Farscape

Flopcast 617: 1999 TV Part 1 – So Weird

Flopcast episode 617! We’re diving into television of the year 1999… which is quite recent by Flopcast standards, but yikes, it was a quarter century ago. We have a giant list of every TV show that debuted that year, and this week we only get halfway through the list. Several

Flopcast 616 Metamorpho and Sapphire

Flopcast 616: Ramona and Topo

Flopcast episode 616! Kevin and the Mayor of Chickentown are celebrating the career of comic book artist Ramona Fradon, who died this week at the age of 97. Ramona was one of the only women drawing comics way back in the early 60s, when she was the premier Aquaman artist

Flopcast 615 Cher

Flopcast 615: The Flying Cow Hall of Fame

Flopcast episode 615! It’s time for our annual review of the nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame… which means we could start screaming “What about the Monkees?!” at any time. But there are some worthy and long overdue performers up for induction, such as Cher, Mariah, and

Flopcast 614 David Spade Mindy Cohn Facts of Life

Flopcast 614: The Backs of Life 7 – Big Apple Blues

Flopcast episode 614! After a three year break, we’re getting back to The Backs of Life! (As requested by absolutely no one! You’re welcome!) Back in 2021, we started reviewing all the “backdoor pilot” episodes of classic 80s sitcom The Facts of Life. Now as we finally revive this very important

Flopcast 613 Popcorn Kid cast

Flopcast 613: Buh-Dup Doh-Doh-Doh

Flopcast episode 613! It’s another goofy random little show this week, including: Kornflake finds an Oompa Loompa at the Chocolate Expo; Kevin finds a rock star at the disco; the secret language of chickens is revealed; we’re less than excited about Popcorn Day; and it’s almost time to revive our Facts

Flopcast 612 Disco Mummy

Flopcast 612: Dancing Queens, Disco Mummies

Flopcast episode 612! It’s a surprisingly disco-themed episode, because Kevin, Kornflake, the Mayor of Chickentown, and Ed from Sponge Awareness Foundation all met in the middle of New Hampshire for a spectacular ABBA tribute show. We were there because our old pal (and occasional SAF guitarist) Mike was onstage in

Flopcast 611 Aquaman water baseball

Flopcast 611: The Super Dictionary – Be a Duck

Flopcast episode 611! Ready for more vocabulary lessons with the Justice League of America? We’re diving back into The Super Dictionary, a 1978 book that attempted to mix learning with superheroes, and succeeded in being completely bizarre. This time we’ll look at entries involving: walrus baseball with Aquaman, cleaning an invisible
