Anti-Intellectualism in She-Ra and the Princesses of Power

This is a video that’s been a year coming. The last time I covered this topic, I had to cut it down to just discussing Entrapta’s lack of ethics, but now I’m able to give a more serious look at the accidental anti-intellectualism that leaked into She-Ra and the Princesses of Power by way of Entrapta, Hordak, Lance, and George.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 337: Captured Clops

GC13 and David discuss Captured Clops from Mao Mao: Heroes of Pure Heart.

How far will one badger go to avoid doing either of his chores? Apparently all the way into the comforting arms of the Sky Pirates—and Orangusnake’s chair.

Has Badgerclops ever been this desperate to avoid his chores? No, not really. But that’s okay: we love Mao Mao for its cartoony nature. Now if only the Sky Pirates would more consistently be some kind of a threat…

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 336: Alpha Leader

GC13 and David discuss Alpha Leader from Glitch Techs.

Is it wise to try to imitate Mitch? We doubt that very much. But when you’re trying to impress some p-cool techs, you can put yourself under so much pressure you’re bound to make mistakes.

Since we know that Mitchpires have reflections though, how can you detect them? Just watch out the next time someone wants to lead your team, okay?

How Glitch Techs Made Me A Better Gamer

For a long time I’ve told myself that I can’t play games requiring quick response times anymore, but watching Glitch Techs made me wonder how true that was. Though it took some time to find the right game, I was eventually successful!

So thank you Glitch Techs: after your inspiration, I am now a better, more well-rounded gamer. Balance has been restored.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 335: The Haunted Campfire

GC13 and David discuss The Haunted Campfire from Summer Camp Island.

Well it took twenty-four episodes, but we finally got to see the Summer Camp Island spin on the ghost stories around a campfire episode.

If your worst fear is a ghost made out of toast who has to be the most handsome person in the room, you’ve definitely graduated beyond bumblebees. Congratulations Oscar.

Cartoon Network January 2021 Ratings Report

Cartoon Network was very sparing with its episode premiers in January 2021, but we did get premiers for four shows: Bakugan: Battle Planet, Craig of the Creek, Teen Titans Go!, and Total Dramrama.

With so few premiers to look at the ratings for, we also have plenty of time to look at how poor the ratings are compared to even just one year ago.

Lunar Sea Spire episode 334: Sugar Berry Fever

GC13 and David discuss Sugar Berry Fever from Mao Mao: Heroes of Pure Heart, aka the origin of the Golden Truth.

While it’s true that Mao Mao definitely had the fever in this episode, this isn’t the only time he’s abused his power as sheriff. If only King Snugglemagne weren’t plotting something, perhaps Mao Mao could be stopped. Or maybe he couldn’t be; his outfit is ideal for committing crimes, after all.

What is the Barrier? Infinity Train’s Mirror World

Introduced in the Chrome Car, Infinity Train’s Reflection Enforcement is devoted to protecting the barrier between the mirror world and the prime world. Except, what damage have we ever seen done to the barrier? And why is it that they’re so eager to cross the barrier repeatedly to get one sliver content to live on the other side? There has to be something more to it.

Infinity Train’s mirror world comes up a lot in the second season, yet so much of it is still a mystery. Still, what’s a theory without some evidence to back it up? Even if Infinity Train never delves into the mirror world again, there’s a lot we can say.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 333: Castle Crawl

GC13 and David discuss Castle Crawl from Glitch Techs. We hope you like Castlevania episodes: you’re watching one!

If you ever question just how much Glitch Techs loves gaming, Castle Crawl is your go-to episode. We certainly love gaming too, and neither of us is going to let the fact that we’ve never played Castlevania before stop us from discussing the episode!

Pencil Break Mania: Craig of the Creek’s Wrestling Episode

Sooner or later every cartoon gets a wrestling episode. Well, Craig of the Creek has Pencil Break Mania to keep to that tradition. Matt Burnett and Ben Levin – the creators of Craig of the Creek – are big fans of wrestling, so you can be sure that Pencil Break Mania remains true to the sport.

That said, how many fans of cartoons are fans of wrestling? How many fans of Craig of the Creek understood all of the loving references Pencil Break Mania contained, or even the basic wrestling rules, storylines, and tropes? Well, that’s what we’re here to go over.
