||ExplicitThe Floor is Lava 29: Sailor-On-Sailor Action||This week we go way, way back in our time machine. Think the 1940s, except older. Yep, we’re heading back to the 1930s, far before our hosts were born. It’s Daniel’s turn, and we’re watching a classic: Popeye.||5/10/2013||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitThe Floor is Lava 28: Courage the Cowardly Prop Comic||If you are the host of a podcast about retro kid’s television shows, and Netflix drops a load of Cartoon Network gold in your lap, what do you do? Watch all of it, of course! Watching is the easy part; however, picking where to start can be hard.||5/3/2013||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitThe Floor is Lava 27: Out of a KISS Video||Our beloved Klaus brings many smiles to the show this week. OK, so Klaus can make us laugh at the drop of a coin, but, to his credit, he picks perhaps the best show that we have watched in recent episodes.||4/19/2013||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitThe Floor is Lava 26: Magoo Porn||Mr. Magoo is a powder keg. Bet you didn’t expect to read that today. I remember The Mr. Magoo Show as a comical chronicle of the daily adventures of a myopic kindly old man; however, as with many cartoons of the mid-20th Century,||4/12/2013||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitThe Floor is Lava 25: Just Add -tron||We check off a big name this week. You know, one of those shows that we must watch. It seems that among our hosts, I have the corner on the Transformers market. This week we are all about Transformers: Generation 1, the show,||4/5/2013||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitThe Floor is Lava 24: Nothing is Sacred||Continuing what began with Saved by the Bell, we are branching off of the “we only watch cartoons” theme. Don’t worry; we will still have plenty of cartoons for you to enjoy (or make fun of); however we also want to expand into family sitcoms||3/29/2013||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitThe Floor is Lava 23: Coffee Maker No-No||I have good news and bad news. Inevitably, sometimes, you have to take the bad with the good. First, to soften the blow, the good news: We are watching Voltron, and Tim Curry lends his voice to the show. Unfortunately,||3/22/2013||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitThe Floor is Lava 22: All Aboard the Dinkie Train||Despite his awe-inspiring mustache, his ability to delight a room full of German opera fans, and his blue ribbon in the Robotnik look-alike contest, Klaus gets nightmares after watching Gumby, whom most people associate with a warm smile and joyful dem.||3/15/2013||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitThe Floor is Lava 21: Hot Fudge Sundae||Do you like Power Rangers? Do you like programs that are like Power Rangers but much worse? If so, then you will be on the edge of your seat for this entire episode. For at least the second time in the history of The Floor is Lava,||3/8/2013||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitThe Floor is Lava 20: More Action Than a 3-Hour Movie||I am going to share a secret: On a rare occasion, we get together and watch a show that all of us enjoy. It’s true! Of course, all of these shows once seemed spectacular; however, once you view them as an adult,||3/1/2013||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitThe Floor is Lava 19 – One Season Too Many||I don’t know why, but I think Klaus wants to punish us this week. We don’t do repeats, but he found a loophole in our system: We never said anything about watching different shows based on the same character. With that in mind,||2/15/2013||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitThe Floor is Lava 18 – No Love for Johnny Whitaker||Apparently we didn’t learn anything from our pilot episode. For our first unofficial show, if you remember, we watched H.R. Pufnstuf, and it was just weird. Not the good kind of weird either. It was the stuff of nightmares.||2/8/2013||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitThe Floor is Lava 17: The Cheese is Lava||Surprise! Our special guest host from last week, Daniel “Boone” Riha, joins us for another week of debauchery! This time with more cheese! Yes, almost three minutes of this episode are devoted to a delicious cheese roundtable,||2/1/2013||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitThe Floor is Lava 16: Put ’em on a Leash||And we’re back! It has taken us longer than expected to get back on track, but we are finally ready to pump more beloved (and ridiculed) children’s television shows into your bloodstream. Dear friend Daniel Riha,||1/25/2013||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitThe Floor is Lava 15: A Skeletor Christmas Carol||As the year comes to a close, we also close the book on The Floor is Lava in 2012. Don’t worry, though; we will be back so soon you won’t have time to miss us. Before we go, we have a whopper of a final episode for you. During many shows,||12/21/2012||Free||View in iTunes|
If you're a fan of 'director commentary' type content, with the cartoons that you grew up with thrown in there, this is the show for you.
