Episode 300 - Mike Read's Pop Quiz

Jan 25, 2021

Mike Read has made many things he should be ashamed of. A racist UKIP Calypso song, a board game based on a rubbish TV quiz, and a TV quiz which would subsequently be made into a rubbish board game. We examine two of those things this week. Happy 300 episodes!

Episode 301 - Dungeons & Dragons RE-RE-REVISITED

Feb 1, 2021

"Ranger... Barbarian... Magician... Thief... Cavalier... and Acrobat!"

100 more episodes have gone by, so Mark and Martyn re-re-revisit the first episode of W4B by re-re-rewatching the first episode of Dungeons and Dragons. Again. Because they said
they would. And they are stupid.

Re-re-reliving all the fun and adventure of a group of abandoned teenagers hampered in their quest to get home by a small mewling unicorn. For a fourth time. It's just as good as it sounded every other time before.

Episode 302 - NOW... that's what I call the 80s-est 80s music videos 3

Feb 8, 2021

We decide to look at some more 80s music videos, and start off with three of Mark's picks. So roll up your jacket sleeves, grab a pair of legwarmers and get ready to dance to the sound of two men talking over all the music. Boooo!

Episode 303 - NOW... that's what I call the 80s-est 80s music videos 4

Feb 15, 2021

Three more music videos get talked over this week, but luckily Martyn's picks are mostly boring so you're not missing anything.

Episode 304 - Sylvanian Families

Feb 22, 2021

How do you make a cartoon out of woodland creatures living in doll houses? Add some unnecessary human kids, several layers of reality, a vampire villain and a rejected Wuzzle.

Episode 305 - Super Mario World

Mar 1, 2021

Arguably the best video game series ever made has only ever received the worst cartoon spin-offs. Super Mario World is apparently a blast from the past. But what's your favourite kind of blast? Let us know.

Episode 306 - Hickory House

Mar 8, 2021

A cushion puppet competes with a man in tight trousers for the most inappropriate bulge on a kids' TV show, as we watch Hickory House before washing our eyes out with bleach.

Episode 307 - Rocky Hollow

Mar 15, 2021

Time for a proper forgotten nightmare fuel treat this week as we watch Rocky Hollow, which definitely didn't exist but is also definitely going to crawl out of whatever screen you're watching it on and kill you.

Episode 308 - Victor & Maria

Mar 22, 2021

A polar bear and a girl try on some coats and nobody asks any questions. It would be perfectly reasonable to ask why she has a polar bear with her. Or even why the polar bear is trying on coats. But nobody does.

Episode 309 - The Karate Kid: The Animated Series

Mar 29, 2021

The Karate Kid has had two TV spin-offs - one is about searching the globe for a magic shrine or something, and the other is just about middle-aged men remembering the 80s. Why would anyone watch or listen to the second one?

Episode 310 - What-A-Mess At The Seaside

Apr 5, 2021

A pile of rubbish pretending to be a dog has adventures and there's rubbish everywhere and we're supposed to be ok with all the rubbish everywhere but it's awful and I hate it. What-A-Fucking-Mess indeed.

Episode 311 - Under The Umbrella Tree

Apr 12, 2021

We learn all about Umbrella Trees using the internet and our own curiosity, with no thanks to this boring bunch of puppet bastards who nobody's ever heard of.

Episode 312 - The Hot Rod Dogs & Cool Car Cats

Apr 19, 2021

We discover what it probably feels like to go mad as we watch a load of vehicle/animal hybrid abominations living in a weird post-apocalyptic landscape. This should have been called "Car-Pets" and I'm annoyed I only just thought of that.

Episode 313 - Bucky O'Hare

Apr 26, 2021

A big green space rabbit and a four-armed duck kidnap a human child to kill toads, and we all went along with it because the theme song was good. Shame on all of us.

Episode 314 - Fox Tales

May 3, 2021

Haunted puppets of woodland creatures lurk in the darkness throughout Fox Tales, which may or may not be a manifestation of our nightmarish collective consciousness.

Episode 315 - Robotix

May 10, 2021

Robotix was a cartoon designed to sell robot toys, and it succeeds... in making us want to buy toys from other robot cartoon toy adverts.

Episode 316 - Kissyfur

May 24, 2021

The lighthearted adventures of some mistreated circus animals dealing with bereavement, train crashes and alligator attacks. Cartoons are fun.

Episode 317 - Noggin The Nog

May 31, 2021

We're supposed to be watching Noggin the Nog, but anyone who's listened before knows there's "Norway" we'll stay on topic, especially when Viking Beadle's About...

Episode 318 - Windfalls

Jun 7, 2021

Leaves come to life and have terrifying felt tip faces in Windfalls, a horrible stop-motion TV show that probably didn't even exist.

Episode 319 - Home James

Jun 14, 2021

This week we're watching Home James, one of the worst things Jim Davidson ever committed to film, including his dressing gown-clad old lady rant in his kitchen. Part one of our tenuous sitcom gingology.

Episode 320 - On The Up

Jun 21, 2021

Dennis Waterman is more than the "write-da-feem-choon-sing-da-feem-choon" caricature Little Britain made him out to be in On The Up, in which the theme tune was... Oh. Never mind.

Episode 321 - Fantastic Max

Jun 28, 2021

This episode was going to be about Home To Roost, but as it's episode 321 we should have made it about 3-2-1. Instead we watched a cartoon about a baby with a ginger mohawk, a spaceship and a robot butler or something.

Episode 322 - Blue Peter

Jul 5, 2021

Blue Peter was boring and if you liked it you were boring too. Mark Curry was a force for chaos, destroying Lego, wearing wacky suits and riding backwards bikes with reckless abandon. Be thankful for Mark Curry. Both of them. All the Mark Currys. Everywhere.

Episode 323 - Towser

Jul 12, 2021

Of all the cartoon dogs with names ending in "owser," Towser is definitely one of them.

Episode 324 - Ric The Raven

Jul 19, 2021

Ric is a blue bird who harrasses bearded men or something. Look it's five minutes long, what more do you want from this?
