Howdy everybody! Grab a cup of tea, butter those crumpets and join us for our drunken commentary for the 1986 Disney film, The Great Mouse Detective. This underrated cult classic follows the story of Basil of Baker Street, the Holmesian mouse with love of adventure and (apparently) only moderately convincing cosplay.

We've got adorable Scottish mice, friendly basset hounds and Vincent Price as the delightfully campy Ratigan. This episode is a bit more free-form as we basically do a running commentary on the movie as you watch along with us.

Think of it as an even more niche version of Rifftrax!

Hope you guys like this one and thank you so much for listening! Please let us know if you have any comments or requests!

*Please note: this episode features descriptions of animal abuse and violence so listener discretion is advised. *

Hey everyone! Who's ready to get sad and angry at the same time? That's right, it's angrad time! (Sangry?)

We're talking about the 1982 film, The Plague Dogs directed by Martin Rosen and written by Richard Adams (both of Watership Down fame). Our story follows two dogs, Rowlf and Snitter, as they escape from an animal testing facility and try to survive in the outdoors.

It's like Homeward Bound without the hope! Or All Dogs go to Heaven but with more brain surgery and English accents!

Seriously though, it's quite a sad movie but worth checking out. Thank you for listening and please let us know what you think or if you have recommendations, requests, etc.

Hey guys, it's great to see you again! This week we are talking about the 2012 French feature "Ernest and Celestine." This adorable movie follows the journey of a bear and a mouse who become friends in a world where bears live above and mice live below. It is honestly one of the cutest movies we've ever done and after watching it, we were both excited to talk about it, so we sincerely hope you enjoy! Also, as mentioned in the episode, here is a link to the official site: link!
