The Earth Station One Podcast Episode 278 – The History of Animation pt IV – 1970’s & 80’s

ESO Ep 278 The 70's & 80's of CartoonsIn our fourth installment of American animation through the ages, the ESO crew cover two decades when cartoons were everywhere! Mike, Mike, Mark Heffernan, and Michael French discuss Disney’s struggle to reinvent itself, the rise and commercialization of Saturday mornings, and some cartoons that were definitely not for kids. We also chat with artist Kelly Yates who will join us for Doctor Who Comic Day at Borderlands this Saturday if he can survive the Geek Seat! Plus, Dr. Scott Viguie talks about his contribution to the ESO Anthology and we Rant and Rave about Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation.
