Flopcast 417: ABC Saturday Morning 1980 – Ookla’s the Best

Flopcast episode 417! Grab a bowl of Cookie Crisp; you’re gonna need it. The plan is to discuss every Saturday morning cartoon from way back in 1980, even if it takes three episodes (one for each network). We’re starting with ABC, whose Saturday morning lineup included Super Friends (with evil robot space

Flopcast 416: Speaking of Boobs

Flopcast episode 416! It’s another week in Chickentown Lockdown… so Kevin and Kornflake are playing weird secret online games with their weird secret online friends, Niki Luparelli is entertaining the world from her kitchen, Jay Leno is distracted by Kevin’s t-shirt, and a trip into the Pudding Pages leads to

Flopcast 415: Trapped in the House Round 2 – Any Annie

Flopcast episode 415! We’re back for another round of the dumb game we invented last week, Trapped in the House. (This is the most timely we’ve ever been on the Flopcast… by about thirty years.) Kornflake is in charge this time, forcing Kevin to choose his quarantine roommates from a

Flopcast 414: Ready To Be Wink

Flopcast episode 414! This week we’re starting with even more TV talk, as Kornflake is reunited with her long lost Captain Jean-Luc Picard. Meanwhile Kevin recounts what is probably, hopefully, the most bizarre episode of The Love Boat ever. And you’d better believe Janet Jackson and a robot duplicate of Isaac the

Flopcast 413: Dark and Brooding Like Kornflake

Flopcast episode 413! In these weird scary times, we’re keeping the Flopcast short, simple, and (hopefully) silly, as we review our latest trapped-in-the-house activities. Kornflake has been checking out music from Vance Gilbert, Jim Infantino, They Might Be Giants, and Carbon Leaf… and she also invented a goofy potato game.

Flopcast 412: The Hot Macrame Talk

Flopcast episode 412! We’re still in social distancing mode here in Chickentown, of course, as we cross one cancelled event after another off the stupid calendar. (Specifically, Pee Wee Herman and Diane Birch are keeping their distance from us this week.) But that means more TV talk (Lost in Space, Shrill, Picard, Taskmaster,

Flopcast 411: Hold the Iguana

Flopcast episode 411! Remember what the world was like two weeks ago? Yeah, things have changed. But that’s when Kevin took a quick trip to Las Vegas to visit our dear friends Brittany and Martha of Good Enough Cosplay! So they’re on the show this week, discussing murderers and ice

Flopcast 410: MarsCon 2020 – Wow.

Flopcast episode 410! Kornflake has returned from Minnesota with a full report on MarsCon, home of our beloved Dementia Track of comedy music performances! And this was the busiest MarsCon ever for Kornflake! In addition to her regular Dementia Water Aerobics classes (keeping nerds in shape and exhausted since 2013),

Flopcast 409: 1980 TV Part 2 – Cosmos and Enos

Flopcast episode 409! Kevin and the Mayor conclude their look back at the TV shows that debuted in 1980! It was the year of Tom Selleck in Hawaii and Tom Hanks in drag. Deputy Enos left Hazzard County for Los Angeles. The biggest stars in country music shared a stage

Flopcast 408: 1980 TV Part 1 – Sparky and Corky

While Kornflake is off entertaining the nerds of Minnesota at MarsCon, Kevin and the Mayor discuss obscure TV shows from forty years ago. (We’re quite timely around here.) Specifically we’re looking at shows that debuted in the year 1980. And it’s a weird list. Weirder than you think. Including: Spinoffs

Flopcast 407: FlopFight Part 2 – I’m Your Private Dentist

Flopcast episode 407! Time to finish what we started (and instantly regretted) last week: A ridiculous Flopcast tournament of 1980s pop stars, as we celebrate the 35th anniversary of USA for Africa and “We Are the World.” We’re still picking the players and the events at random, so anything could
