As we get closer and closer to the end of the original Transformers cartoon, our All-Star Guests continue coming. This episode we are joined by the hosts of the excellent podcast Stranger Still, Jon Beigen and Nicholas Wood! Nick also does the Hanna-Barbera based cartoon review show Limited Cel with his dad, but you can find it at the same link. If you’re looking for specific episodes to start with, the PETA episode of Stranger Still and the Banana Splits Adventure Hour on Limited Cel were both good.

Jon’s Insane Moment was when a bunch of the Autobots got infected by the rage virus:

96 Rage Virus in Auitobots

Nick chose the moment when they were juuuust about to melt Optimus Prime’s body down:

96 Optimus Prime Getting Melted

Adam enjoyed seeing Rodimus build a team and having all of them transform back to back (careful if you’re playing the drinking game during this sequence):

96 Transform and Roll Out

And Kevin loved it when Rodimus Prime transformed to jump over an infected Ultra Magnus, then transformed back and drove away:

Episode 95: Face of the Nijika with guest Dave Stone-Robb

95 Nijika

Say hello to the Nijika, a robot geisha/astronaut. It’s a pretty wild episode this time, and we are joined by the first of our All-Star guests who will be helping us countdown to the end of the original Transformers cartoon!

Our guest this episode is Dave Stone-Robb! He started the podcast network Ear Trumpet Audio with his wife, which features a lot of great shows including The Reelist where he’s counting down the AFI’s Top 100 American Movies. I’ve been a guest on there twice, and Adam has been on it as well!

Dave also has a pretty new podcast called By the Podcast of Grayskull where he and his co-host are watching every episode of the original He-Man cartoon in… chronological order. Hmmm, might have to have a word about that.

Anyhow, for his Insane Moment Dave chose the fact that the Nijika is not only smaller than we expected, but seems to get even smaller at times:

Kevin was very happy to get a good look at Rodimus Prime’s very own Sad Trailer!

Adam decided he needed two Insane Moments this time, so up first is Sky Lynx vomiting the Autobots out of his mouth:

And his second was when Perceptor’s stolen insignia was placed on the Nijika’s head and became her face… somehow:
