PSA: this is not a discussion of Epic Movie. Zach and Elle harken back to those halcyon days of 2013 with Epic, a Blue Sky Studio feature about tiny leaf men fighting tiny frog/bug/orc creatures. It’s the movie that kind of, sort of, maybe started it all? Talking Points: epic battles in animated movies; Blue Sky Studios can light a gosh dang feature; James Gurney explains furries to Zach’s Dad; you definitely need more than one musical number in a movie, guys.

*Every other week, grownups Zach and Elle look back at obscure, overlooked, and forgotten kids movies. Elle probably saw them as a child; Zach probably did not. Together, they get to the heart of what makes these films worth digging up or worth shoving to the back of your VHS cabinet.

We’re Back! is the same of the movie we talk about in this episode. But we are, also, back in your feed. Zach and Elle roll back the rock to 1993, when Amblimation finally sated the children of the world’s voracious bloodlust for more dinosaurs. Talking Points: Our favorite dinosaurs; why do kids like dinosaurs so much?; Steven Spielberg; honestly, this is just a lot of dino talk folks.

Elle and Zach delve into Gallavants, a 1984 animated film of which nothing has ever been written about. Between dense lore and confusing jargon, it’s challenging to say the least. And yes, Elle is aware the city is called Ganteville, and that she called it Vanterville the entire episode. Why don’t you just mind your own kabump, huh? Talking Points: the uncut 80’s, thank goodness Elle didn’t invent the vanter-viper, Zach’s mind palace portrait, Gallavant anatomy, ant-themed Marvel Superheroes other than Ant-Man.

This week, Zach and Elle talk Balto, a film that’s sort of about the historic dog sled race from Nenana to Nome Alaska that spawned the Iditarod Dog Race. It’s also about  an 80lb wolf-dog living unshot in a town full of humans. Talking Points: Little girls can lead dog sled teams, if there’s a feral dog in your town you should probably shoot it, racism and sexism in animal movies, and Boris: A King Among Geese.

Happy Winter Holiday! Zach and Elle return for a festive and awkward episode about the festive and awkward 1990 animated film The Nutcracker Prince. Without a wealth of context or a raison d'être for this one, they get personal talking first crushes and inanimate objects. Talking Points: Kiefer Sutherland, skateboarding vampires, the sexiness of nutcrackers, Rouge the Bat.

We have a big announcement AND our very first guest! Malcolm Nygard of the Flying Machine network joins us to talk about Porco Rosso, a hidden gem in Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli's impressive roster. Unfortunately, it's really only tangentially a kids movie. Thank goodness Malcolm is here to help Zach and Elle muddle through the adult stuff. Talking Points: Anime was a mistake, the virtues of being a pig rather than a fascist, European grandmas, and also, survivors guilt and self-perception. Hey, we told you this was adult stuff.

The Swan Princess is a 1994 children's fantasy film that really, really wants to be a Disney Princess film, but doesn't quite get there. Elle really likes it all the same though. Talking points: Nasty bird sex, Daddy Rothbart, Derek is a bad name for a fantasy prince, swamp friends.
