Our long, slow crawl to episode 100 continues. While Jeeg is off searching for the third constituent element in his Weather Dominator this week, we are joined by our good friend Shawn Robare and first time guest Howie Decker of the Under Scoop Fire Blog and Podcast.  And in this very special episode, CT, the guests and I are discussing the GI Joe A Real American Hero toys.

Episode 39 of the Nerd Lunch podcast is live and ready to defend human freedom against…boredom, I guess? This week we are joined by Doug from the very funny podcast Schlock Treatment.  Our topic?  Determine if the GI Joe A Real American Hero cartoon stands the “Test of Time”.

We each take an aspect of the cartoon and review it. Doug takes the original mini-series, The MASS Device. I took the sequel mini-series, The Revenge of Cobra. Jeeg talks about the original cartoon movie and CT talks about the second season mini-series, Arise, Serpentor, Arise!

Listen to us discuss what we liked and didn’t like about each of these programs.  We also discuss some of our other favorite cartoon episodes including Cold Slither and Ninja Holiday.  See how many of us feel the cartoon does live up to the “Test of Time” and how many of us feel otherwise.
