Brigid’s Return: Craig of the Creek’s Children of the Dog

Brigid was one of Craig of the Creek’s one-episode characters for over two years, but The Children of the Dog finally brought her back. No longer a cult leader, Brigid seems to have gone mainstream by becoming the creek version of a televangelist.

It’s not a direction I saw coming, but Brigid remains. Do you think Craig of the Creek could bring her back for a third episode?

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 343: Adventures in Pet Training

GC13 and David discuss Adventures in Pet Training from Glitch Techs.

Do you think with your thumper, or your thinker? That is to say: what is a glitch but a– Wait, wrong episode!

Delve deep into the philosophy of clones and software this episode, thanks to the wonders of science-fiction. Also, if 2016’s Ghostbusters and Wreck-It Ralph are being referenced in cartoons now, does that make us old?

Cartoon Network March 2021 Ratings Report

Cartoon Network continued in March as it did in February, giving us weekly premiers of Teen Titans Go, Total Dramarama, Craig of the Creek, and Bakugan: Battle Planet.

The big difference this month was the premier of Elliott From Earth, getting brand new episodes each weekday morning starting at the end of the month.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 342: The Nightmare Begins

GC13 and David bring doom to the podcast by discussing the first episode of Invader Zim: The Nightmare Begins.

If you’ve never seen Invader Zim, if you’ve never seen The Nightmare Begins, then do yourself a favor and treat yourself. It was the perfect first episode for Invader Zim, and Invader Zim itself is still a series well worth starting even after twenty years.

Infinity Train’s Dark Secret: The Mirror World and Reflection Enforcement

Reflection Enforcement was a villainous presence in Infinity Train for an entire season, but we’ve only ever met two of their enforcers: Mace and Sieve. What they’ve left us with is evidence of a dark conspiracy.

Not only is the Mirror World probably the worst place to live in all of Infinity Train, things are probably far worse than your average reflection thinks…

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 341: Space Invasion

GC13 and David discuss Space Invasion from Summer Camp Island.

Oscar is a great host, but it really breaks him down. Perhaps his mother set too good an example? Much like Hedgehog’s mother also set a pretty high (low?) bar for Hedgehog to tackle. It’s no wonder the King made the decision he did…

And you know what? We want to stay at the fun cabin too!

Tiger Millionaire: Steven Universe’s (First) Wrestling Episode

Steven Universe only took nine episodes to give us Tiger Millionaire, its first wrestling episode and quite possibly GC13’s favorite episode of the series. But if GC13 loved Tiger Millionaire before he ever watched wrestling, it’s possible that you too love the episode without appreciating the care that went into making Steven Universe’s first wrestling episode.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 340: Flyaway

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

So, we learned that dentists in the Pure Heart Valley are scary. Also about the existence of the schnepp realm (resemblances to Jon Schnepp probably not coincidental).

But mostly we’ve learned that there’s no problem Badgerclops can’t run away from in the end.

You Should Watch Kid Cosmic

Kid Cosmic premiered on Netflix on February 2nd, and if you haven’t watched it yet, you should!

What’s that? You wanted a bit more to go on? Well, Kid Cosmic’s visual style is meant to call back to old newspaper comics, and it makes the show look like it’s one of the Kid’s comics put into motion. It has a soundtrack to match, selling an old feel despite the presence of smartphones.

And, of course, Kid Cosmic tells a superhero origin story full of heart. It may make you sad in the middle, but that’s only to add to the coming triumph.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 339: Collection Quest

GC13 and David discuss Collection Quest from Glitch Techs.

It may not be his debut, but the Robo-Burgr definitely gets some time to shine, as does Miko’s sister (high school is scary). This one is a favorite episode of GC13, and that means it’s time to get nerdy!

So whether or not you buy into any conspiracy theories regarding the nature of plixels, may your quests always bring you barrels of XP.
