Peter Fenzel, Mark Lee, and Matthew Wrather scoot in close to the CRT television and fire up their favorite after school cartoons. And apparently they’re not the only ones—which leads them to a detailed history of POGs, as well as the new Chip ’n Dale Rescue Rangers live action film, staring Andy Samberg and John Mulaney. They discuss the peculiar dynamics of the Roger Rabbit-adjacent universe, the surprisingly dark tone of the film, and the themes of loneliness and nostalgia that give the film its heart.
