Hello everybody! Welcome to episode 84 of the Not Joanna Eggs podcast! This week, Tracy and Robbie are joined by Adri aka @adriofthedead to talk about Tiny Toons' How I Spent My Summer Vacation, a classic summer romp with Steven Spielberg's wacky cartoon critters as they learn as little as possible outside of school.

Join us as we discuss how insanely funny the show still is, our shared experiences with road trip vacations and the greatest THX sound system parody ever depicted. Take a trip down the river with us as we review this fantastic special!

Hey everybody! Welcome to episode 83 of the Not Joanna Eggs podcast! This week, Robbie and Tracy review the 2006 rotoscoped animated film, A Scanner Darkly.

Based on the novel by Philip K Dick, this surreal film follows Bob Arctor, an undercover cop trying to locate the kingpin of a highly addictive drug known as Substance D permeating Anaheim, CA.

We examine the semi-autobiographical nature of the story, Woody Harrelson's amazingly silly wig and how in the blue blazes Alex Jones was involved with this movie (yes, gay-frog-conspiracy-theorist turned meme-lord Alex Jones). Also, the exact amount of movie time to skip to make Venom enjoyable!

Hey everybody! Welcome to Episode 82 of the Not Joanna Eggs podcast. This week, Robbie and Tracy review the 2014 CGI film, The Book of Life, directed by Jorge Gutierrez. (Thank you to Daniel Martinez @electricmastro5 for the request!)

Listen in as they discuss the painstakingly beautiful character models, the director's emphasis on authenticity and their feelings regarding the film's use of pop music covers (hint: Tracy's been sippin' that Haterade.)

Hey everybody! Welcome to Episode 81 of the Not Joanna Eggs podcast. This week, Robbie and Tracy review the 2015 Mamoru Hosoda anime film, The Boy and The Beast. 

Join us as we discuss the questionable methods of dealing with conflict between the two main characters, Chico being a cute patoot and making sense of all the competing tropes.

Hello, and welcome to another episode of the Not Joanna Eggs podcast! This week, as part of our second episode of Ani-May, we're reviewing Howl's Moving Castle! This 2004 Studio Ghibli film, directed by none other the Hayao Miyazaki, is based on the 1986 novel of the same name by Dianne Wynne Jones.

We talk about the differences between the movie and the book, including the less than subtle anti-war message, as well as our favorite bits and bobs. We had a lot of fun with this one, so please enjoy! And remember to subscribe if you enjoyed it too!

Hey everybody! Welcome to episode 79 of the Not Joanna Eggs podcast: this week, Robbie and Tracy review the 2016 Japanese anime film, A Silent Voice, directed by Naoko Yamada.

A beautifully nuanced story of forgiveness, becoming a better person and a statement against bullying. They even have a character who looks identical to Steven Universe only Japanese, so you know it's deliberate.

We loved this film and hope you dig this review! Please subscribe to us on iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher, Podbean or anywhere you get your podcasts. If you have any requests or questions, find us on Twitter/Instagram or on the show website. Thank you so much for listening!

Hey everybody! Welcome to episode 78 of the Not Joanna Eggs podcast! This week, Robbie and Tracy review the 2016 Chinese animated movie, Big Fish and Begonia.

It's a tale of giant flying dolphins (with horns, so are they narwhals or...), sacrifice and an absolutely gorgeous color palette. We greatly enjoyed reviewing this film and we hope you like this episode! Thank you for listening!

Hey everyone! Welcome to episode 77 of the Not Joanna Eggs podcast. Sorry for the delay with getting this one out! (March is one bananagrams month for your intrepid hosts.)

Anyhow, this week, we check out the 2015 French-Belgian-Canadian animated film, April and the Extraordinary World: steampunk, STEM and a cat voiced by Tony "Buster Bluth" Hale that intrusively asks our heroine if she liked being French-kissed by a boy. Uh, yes AND please!

We hope you all enjoy this episode and thank you for listening!

Hey everyone! Welcome to another episode of the Not Joanna Eggs podcast! This week, Robbie and Tracy review the 2008 Iranian-French film, Persepolis.

Based on the autobiographical graphic novel written by Marjane Satrapi, it's a coming of age story set against the Iranian Revolution and its impacts on the lives of Marjane and her family. A powerful mix of tragedy, humor and adapting to tumultuous circumstances, while staying true to yourself.

We had a great time reviewing this and hope you all enjoy it too!

Hey everybody! Welcome to episode 75 of the Not Joanna Eggs podcast! This week, Robbie and Tracy dive into An Extremely Goofy Movie, a time capsule of extreme sports, 'za and other marketing buzzwords catered towards 90's preteens!

Join us as we discuss the overload of ska music, how pure Sylvia is as a character and why PJ will succeed once he kills Pete once and for all. We had a lot of fun reviewing this one and we hope you all enjoy it!

Hey everyone! Welcome to episode 74 of the Not Joanna Eggs podcast! This week, Robbie and Tracy review the Gore Verbinski-directed 2011 CGI film, Rango, with guest web animator and artist Lee aka @AlmightyLeroy.

Listen as Robbie desperately attempts to wrangle Tracy and Lee back to the subject at hand, like a sad cat herder doin' their darndest. It's a lively but silly and engaging discussion and we hope you enjoy this episode!

Hey everybody! Welcome to episode 73 of the Not Joanna Eggs podcast! This week, Robbie and Tracy review the 1990(1996?) anime film, The Wonderful Galaxy of Oz. Originally a full series, it was condensed down to feature length film and the result is bizarre, goofy and very dated, but we loved every second of it.

Hope you guys like this one and thank you for listening!

Hey everybody! Welcome to episode 72 of Not Joanna Eggs: this week, we're reviewing The Napping Princess, the 2017 anime film directed by Kenji Kamiyama.

This quickly devolves into a rage-cast albeit a funny one, so strap in ya'll. Hope you guys like this one!

Happy holidays, y'all!! We are back with our last episode of 2018, which was certainly a year, of some kind! This week we are talking about Satoshi Kon's 2003 Tokyo Gofathers, a delightful animated film about homeless people and misplaced babies. It's a doozy of a movie, but we have a heck of a time talkin' about it. We also try to decide, what do you call a gift that is forced upon you. Please enjoy this episode and thanks for sticking with us through another year!

Happy holidays everyone! This week, Robbie and Tracy are joined by special guest, Tyler Marchant (Futurehorsepod, Soundtrash, Tynami) to review the Matt Groening-produced 1999 TV special, Olive the Other Reindeer.

Based on the children's book of the same name, it's a surreal slice of that weird CGI cut-out animation that was vaguely popular in the late 90s/early 2000s. Featuring the voices of Drew Barrymore, Joe Pantaliano (Joey Pants), Jay Mohr, Chicago hometown hero Tim Meadows and Dan Castellaneta as a maniacal mail-man.

What starts as a lively discussion about the movie quickly devolves into an absurdly silly dinner-table argument caught on tape between Tyler, Tracy and Robbie. In a phrase, it truly is the most wonderful time of the year. :)

Hope you like this episode! Please rate/subscribe and let us know what you'd like to hear next!

Hello everybody! Apologies for the delay in getting this one out! Meowvember has been crazy busy for us.

Anyway, this week, we delve into The Cat Returns with special guest, Meekly Sheepling! An underrated Studio Ghibli gem, this film is as adorable as it gets, with the swashbuckling Baron, grumpy Muta and of course, a hot plate of Tim Curry as the goofy King of the Cats. And also Anne Hathaway is there, being cute. Equip your UwU's as you see fit for this one because we're silly and borderline slap-happy.

Hope you guys dig it and thank you for listening!

Hello and welcome back to Not Joanna Eggs. This week we're doing something of a throwback, revisiting a movie we talked about way back when we started the podcast. That movie is Cats Don't Dance, a lovely animated feature clocking in at right around an hour ten. And like the last time we revisited something from our past, we have a guest this time. Our guest for this episode is Antidarkheart, a freelance artist and bird mama.

Hey everybody! Welcome to the Not Joanna Eggs Halloween Special for 2018!

This time, Robbie and Tracy are reviewing Mary and The Witch's Flower, with two of their favorite people: returning guest, Angus Beer, and first time guest, Meekly Sheepling! Listen in as we dive into the balancing act of Studio Ponoc finding its feet, why people insist on fixating on Mary being a ginger kid and how great the cats in this movie are. *Spoiler alert: They are SOOO great.*

Hey everybody! This week, Robbie and Tracy review the 1988 made-for-TV Hanna Barbera special, Scooby Doo and the Ghoul School. If Police Academy and Monster High had the volleyball tournament from Top Gun, it might look a little something like this! Also, Scrappy has a "rap" because it's the late 80s so of course he does! :D

Now, I'm not saying your favorite ghoul girl determines how good of a person you are...but if it's not Phantasma, get out of my house and never speak to my son again. Hope you like this one!

Hey everybody! Welcome to episode 65 of the Not Joanna Eggs podcast! This week, Robbie and Tracy review Anomalisa, Charlie Kaufman's 2015 stop-motion animated film about infidelity, Japanese sex automatons and ponder, "Do girls really just want to have fun?"

Hope you all are in for a weird, post-modern dram-rom-com! We enjoyed this film and hope you all enjoy the review!

Hey everybody! This week, Robbie and Tracy review The Illusionist, a 2010 Sylvain Chomet film, with special guest, digital artist Traci Shepard (@ta_Shepard)!

This film tells the story of an aging magician struggling to stay relevant in the burgeoning age of television, one ornery bunny and a Scottish girl who believes his magic is real (even as he experiences crippling debt in the process). Toss in an alcoholic suicidal clown and some lovely backgrounds of Edinburgh and you have... one very French animated movie!

Hey everybody! Join Robbie and Tracy as they dive into Nelvana's 1983 cult classic, Rock and Rule, with guest Angus Beer. It's Canadian, imaginative and features a terrific soundtrack.

This ain't your grandma's Fantasia, buddy. It's got quasi-furries and funky tunes to spare. Also the villain is totally not a direct parody of Mick Jagger with fangs. Nope, not at all.

Hello again! This week, Tracy and Robbie talk about the 2017 animated film, The Breadwinner. This beautiful, yet difficult to bear movie was produced by Cartoon Saloon and is about a girl named Parvana who begins masquerading as a young boy under her brother's name in an attempt to free her recently imprisoned father. It is a lovely but heart-wrenching movie that takes place in Kabul and we really really loved and we hope you enjoy this episode!

Hey everyone! This week, we're reviewing the enchanting 2012 French animated film, Day of the Crows, with our special guest, Josh from the Animation Station Podcast. Join us as we discuss a woman who somehow makes macarons seem evil, the lead character who really looks a lot like Tommy Pickles and the importance of hugging your kids. Seriously, hug your feral wilderness kids. Hope you enjoy this one and thank you for listening! :D
