Customer Reviews

Wanted to love the podcast, but ended up being frustrated with it.

Let me preface my review with this statement: I wanted to love this podcast, but just couldn't get over some major flaws. One of my biggest gripes with this podcast is that most of the information sounded like it was being read off of Wikipedia. I understand the fact that Wikipedia has a ton of information, but at least summarize it. While I appreciate the fact that the hosts re-watched some of the shows they were discussing, it's a little disappointing that they don't take notes...or at least it didn't sound like they did.

Probably the major flaw with this podcast is the audio quality. I'm not sure if they listened to the podcast back before posting it on the web, but some of the episodes are just plain unlistenable. I was so excited to listen to the Aladdin episode, but when Kevin started to talk, I couldn't even understand a word he was saying. It was all static. So frustrating.

I do however, love the interviews. Those were the episodes that had very little Wikipedia in it, like the Jason Marsden interview -- that was awesome. And the audio for the most part, was okay. I also liked that there was a regular format for most episodes and that Kevin brought some unique perspectives when it came to the voice actors.

I hope the hosts read this and take it as constructive criticism rather than a total negative review. At the time of this review, they are approaching 100 episodes and there is a reason they have been able to accomplish that. I just hope that when they do the "Beyond" reboot that the audio quality has improved and that there will be more than just reading Wikipedia.

4 stars for the idea, 2 stars for the actual execution, 5 stars for actually getting as far as they got and keeping me wanting to listen, even if I couldn't hear what was being said.

Tooncast is a fun look back!

SO glad I found this podcast! I've almost caught up on the episodes and gotta say it's my favorite of all the geeky podcasts I listen to. =) These guys do their homework, know their stuff, and bring their sense of humor as well. Yeah, it's explicit but we all aren't 9 years old anymore so it's not a huge deal. I've heard worse language at family gatherings, lol. Thanks for putting out an entertaining podcast!

Too ambitious.

It's always great to hear analysis, trivia, and personal memories of the cartoons I love. Unfortunately, many episodes of this podcast are hamstrung by a lack of focus and preparation. Awkward silences abound and the absence of any on-air charisma often hits the listener in the face. It's clear that the host(s) lack a strong personal relationship with many of the cartoons, and listening to folks read a Wikipedia page isn't very entertaining. The series would have been much improved if the hosts limited it to series/films for which they had a true passion.
