Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 309: Hedgehog Werewolf

GC13 and David look at Hedgehog Werewolf, the episode of Summer Camp Island where, spoiler alert, Hedgehog becomes a werewolf.

Well, that’s two Cartoon Network shows of this generation where a main character (or characters!) becomes a werewolf. Enjoy your curse, Hedgehog!

Except, maybe it’s not a curse? It could be a metaphor. But for what…? Well, we’re not telling, anyway.

The Witches of the Creek: Craig of the Creek’s Magical Duo

Whenever magical things happen in Craig of the Creek, it’s a good bet that the Witches aren’t far off. Their first episode, The Curse, really set a high bar for them, but they’ve consistently delivered in their three episodes so far.

So, let’s look at the tale of the Witches, shall we? The Witches of the Creek have been in three episodes so far: The Curse, The Last Kid in the Creek, and The Haunted Dollhouse. Perhaps in the future Craig of the Creek will even bring us more witchey episodes.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 308: Dio the Invader

GC13 and Isabelle open up the anime can with the first episode of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Dio the Invader.

Well, Dio is not a likable boy, is he? If he wasn’t good at everything he did, he’d probably have a hard time in life.

We’ll certainly be back to Jojo in the future. The floodgates have been opened, and there’s no holding back the tide now.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 307: The Ground is Lava

GC13 and David discuss The Ground is Lava from Craig of the Creek. No, these creek games aren’t getting any safer.

Well this is a rarity, isn’t it? An episode that zooms out to show that the kids’ fantasy play is just that: fantasy play. Hopefully they don’t make a habit of it.

J.P. gave The Ground is Lava a thumbs up, but we’re really hoping to see a Galactic Kids Next Door crossover happen next.

She-Ra: The Final Discussion (Part Two)

The Lunar Sea Spire crew cannot let go of She-Ra, but in this final discussion, they must.

The team wraps up their stray thoughts about the series, including the eternal mystery of The She-Ra, Entrapta’s growing list of Horde husbands, and the likelihood that Adora’s spacesuit would have killed her.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 306: Small

GC13 and David discuss Small from Mao Mao: Heroes of Pure Hearts.

Don’t let the title confuse you: Small is Shin Mao’s big debut. Shin may not be that impressed by the kingdom or its king, but, well… His son comes out of the episode looking pretty impressive.

While we do get a lovely tour of the kingdom, it’s the monster fight that shines brightly in this episode (at least as brightly as Geraldine).

Ol’ Blue, or How Mao Mao Got His Therapist

Mao Mao’s issues with his father were severe enough to drive him to torment Ol’ Blue, lest there be a sweetypie who isn’t impressed by Mao Mao. But after Parker Simmons implied that maybe Ol’ Blue was more cunning than he let on, it’s been tough to look at him the same.

So is the best therapist in all of Mao Mao: Heroes of Pure Heart really just that hard to impress, or was he just doing what he had to do to get Mao Mao to get the therapist he needed so badly? Let’s take a look at the bluest of the sweetypies and weigh the evidence.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 305: Pepper’s Blanket Is Missing

GC13 and David discuss Summer Camp Island’s mystery episode: Pepper’s Blanket Is Missing.

Sailors get shore leave, so obviously thieves get sailor leave. Who put that rule into the new camp guide? Oscar was probably there—he’s everywhere. If Lucy were there in boss mode, we’d probably have a very different policy.

Do you need nice attention? Make sure your friends know. All friends should be as nice as the bunch in Summer Camp Island.

The Cat and Amelia: Infinity Train’s Curious Duo

The mystery of The Cat endures through both books of Infinity Train so far, but perhaps we actually know a little bit more about her than we thought: maybe The Cat was Amelia’s companion back when she was first brought onto the Infinity Train to work out her grief over the loss of Alrick.

Except, as we’ve seen, their story doesn’t end up being a happy one. In the first book of Infinity Train we see that Amelia is quite, quite unkind to The Cat. Still, The Cat is the only denizen working for “The Conductor”, so clearly they have some kind of bond.
