It’s been a while, but we’re back with another episode of The Pizza Pixel Podcast!  I haven’t had a new episode since last August, but since then I’ve moved to a new apartment, and then the holidays came, so this was the first time in a while that I’ve had a chance to do one!  It’s a pretty important milestone, too, because it’s our 20th episode!  Anyway, in this installment, my brother Ben and I talk about our favorite kids’ shows!  I figured Ben would be appropriate for this one since he has three kids of his own.  Anyway, I hope you get to listen to this one even though it’s two hours long!  That’s our longest podcast yet.  I try to not make them be so long, but we got carried away!

Anyway, thanks for listening.  If this episode triggered some memories for you, or if I left a show out that you liked, please let me know in the comments section!  Later!  –Cary

When I was in kindergarten, there was a puppet show called The Great Space Coaster, which starred a space clown named Baxter and had a "news segment" starring Gary Gnu. My favorite characters on Sesame Street were Cookie Monster and Oscar the Grouch. Watching Cookie Monster demolish those cookies always made me want Chips Ahoy. But other than that, I didn't watch a lot of TV tailored for little kids. I preferred Garfield and Ninja Turtles over Muppets, and I used to watch the Bugs Bunny and Tweety Show.

One other favorite kids' show I had was local to the Phoenix TV market, Wallace and Ladmo. They were on TV for 35 years starting in the 1960s. They did a lot of shows from a local theme park, Legend City. They gave away paper goodie bags known as Ladmo bags, which became such a staple in Phoenix that lunch bags at the Maricopa County Jail were apparently known as Ladmo bags. One time they had rock star Alice Cooper (a longtime Phoenix resident) on the show and gave him a Ladmo bag.

I remember The Great Space Coaster!  It had a robot elephant that looked like Flame Mammoth from Mega Man X!

I've been going through old TV lists to see what I missed or want to watch again. A lot of the kids shows I used to watch aren't very interesting to me now, but a few are, especially the ones I never saw before. I'm especially interested in the Gary Anderson marionette shows and a similar Japanese one called Star Fleet from the 80s.

When I was a kid, one of the very first anime cartoons I watched was Star Blazers.

I think my first was Speed Racer, but Star Blazers was second.

A while back there was a remake of Star Blazers called Space Battleship Yamato 2199.  I watched the first season of it on that CrustyRoll anime streaming service.

I think I started to watch that one time, but I'd like to see the original again more.

When we first got Netflix many years ago, the original Star Blazers was on it so I watched it there.  But that was a pretty long time ago.

I'll have to check to see if it's still there. Maybe worth a one month subscription to see it again.

I kind of doubt it's still on there.  Probably on some anime streaming service by now.
