Everyday we're out there making podcasts (woo hoo) and this particular one is about one of the most awkward-to-pretend-to-be-at-recess superheroes of them all, Gizmoduck! He of the popular 80s cartoon Ducktales (woo hoo).

What is the ethnic history of a quasi-multicultural society in a city called Duckberg ruled by a duck ethnic elite? What exactly is the purpose of money in this universe of swimming, skiing and sunbathing in cash? What's a blatherskite?

Does Ducktales (woo hoo) have the greatest television theme song of all time? What else is in the running? We'll find out today in this turducken of cartoon super-powered adventurrrrrrrre!

    Hey guys,

    really enjoying your talks on these old 80's cartoons. Love to hear your take on Marshall Bravestarr (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XJ46aKjB9oE). I think the character does meet at least some of the criteria for being a super-hero: Has super-powers, fights crime and also has a Super-villain arch-nemesis Tex. Also the show interesting in couple of other ways.
