Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 321: Tutorial Mode

GC13 and David discuss Tutorial Mode from Glitch Techs.

Yep, Glitch Techs really did manage to work its wrestling episode in as its second episode. Yes, the main antagonist of the episode looks suspiciously like Hulk Hogan, brother!

Glitch Techs is an amazing series, so if your interest was piqued by Age of Hinobi then you owe it to yourself to continue on to Tutorial Mode!

Cartoon Network October 2020 Ratings Report

The month of October saw Cartoon Network release a lot of bombs: Teen Titans Go, Apple and Onion, Craig of the Creek, and Total Dramarama all got a week of new episodes, and Victor and Valentino got four!

We also saw the premier of Ben 10 vs the Universe, the Night of the Harbinger movie from Lego, and a new episode of DC Super Hero Girls.

Finally, Bakugan: Battle Planet and Ninjago continued to premier new episodes on Sundays.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 320: Trading Day

GC13 and David discuss Trading Day from Mao Mao: Heroes of Pure Heart. Yep, who had body switch episode? You win.

Well, you win, but the characters never actually switch bodies, do they? (Humorous endings aside.) What they do prove is that they are absolutely awful at being each other (though in Mao Mao’s defense he probably would have been fine if he weren’t also a jerk).

Enid and Her Family: The Spookiest Characters in OK KO

There’s only one family in OK KO spooky enough for Halloween, and that’s Enid’s family. Wilhamena, Bernard, Enid, Boris, and Icky live together in the spookiest house on the block, and since they boast a vampire, a werewolf, a witch, a frankenstein monster, and a headless horseman to be, there’s no one who can take the crown from them any time soon.

So if OK KO has the spooks, let’s go get the spooks. They were only in two episodes, Parents Day and Monster Party, but they’re such a wonderful family we think OK KO was better for their inclusion.

Stevie Borbolla’s doodles of Enid’s family (including Boris and Icky) can be found here.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 319: Cosmic Bupkiss

GC13 and David discuss Cosmic Bupkiss from Summer Camp Island.

Oscar and Hedgehog are eleven, so when they say they’ve been waiting their whole lives to see the Bupkiss comet, they pretty much mean it.

This is the kind of episode we were waiting for though. Do you want to understand the batch of episodes that follows? Then Cosmic Bupkiss sets you up well to understand them.

Stacks: More Than Just Craig of the Creek’s Librarian

While Craig of the Creek is an outdoor series, it still makes time for indoor kids like Stacks. Except… Stacks isn’t just an indoor kid, is she? Sure, her initial episodes focus on what she can do inside a library, but later episodes of Craig of the Creek see her venture out into the creek for quests most noble.

So let’s celebrate Stacks! Craig of the Creek wouldn’t be the same without her, and the Herkleton Public Library wouldn’t be either.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 318: Age of Hinobi

GC13 and David discuss Age of Hinobi, the first episode of Glitch Techs.

It’s an episode with a lot to do, so it makes sense that it’s double-length. We meet Five (who you might hear called “Hector” a lot during this discussion) and Miko, we meet the Glitch Techs, and we meet… Mitch.

Even with all of the extra time it’s still a lot to take in, but Glitch Techs has begun and it’s now Hinobi’s time to shine.

Mao Mao and Badgerclops: Legendary Heroes

Mao Mao and Badgerclops have their silly moments. If you look at what they’re capable of, however, you’d see that if they didn’t let themselves become complacent they’d breeze through most foes in the show. Mao Mao: Heroes of Pure Heart just hasn’t thrown anything at our heroes that they couldn’t handle if they just focused.

Mao Mao has skill and finesse; Badgerclops has pure power; Adorabat is coming into her own as a hero, and offers great backup. Together, the Pure Heart Valley’s Sheriffs Department is up to the test.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 317: The Truth Stinks

GC13 and David discuss The Truth Stinks from Mao Mao: Heroes of Pure Heart.

Yes, Badgerclops stinks. No, we’re not jealous of his crystals. You and we all know he just hates taking showers.

If it ever turns out that the Ruby Pure Heart is responsible for the shifting roles of Mao Mao and Badgerclops, who seem to routinely hand off the title of “the sane one” to one another, we’ll be pleased.

Redeeming the Irredeemable: Infinity Train and Steven Universe

With the release of book three Infinity Train has finally reformed its first villain. It’s a great milestone, but Steven Universe has been reforming villains for a long time. The greatest redemption in all of Steven Universe is undoubtedly the Diamonds, especially Blue and Yellow.

So, let’s compare them to Grace, Infinity Train’s offering. It turns out that when it comes to villain redemption, Steven Universe and Infinity Train really have a lot in common.
