Are your spidey-senses tingling? We’re back with a brand new episode and we’re going all the way back to the swinging 60s, the WEB-slinging 60s! We watched 1967’s Spider-Man cartoon, by far the oldest cartoon we’ve watched for IADB and easily the most baffling. Hear Sarah just break about an hour in.
Watch it too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lUGSjaci6jo&t=90s

We got to chat with Michael Bell, the voice of Quackerjack! He’s a really sweet and giving man who put up with our bad Skype and clunky interviewing skill and revealed a lot about his life and career.
His super talented daughter’s documentary can be found at: http://loveandbananas.com/
Here were are! An episode on a Wednesday? Yeah! We’re playing catch up still after our late episode. We’ll have another episode say on like Monday (Maybe a super special episode) and then back to Sunday releases, all caught up.
This week it’s dinosaurs, textbooks, anvils and golfing in prison!
Michael and Sarah
Man, sorry this episode is late. It’s been one of those weeks. You know, one of THOSE weeks. Anyway, here’s the episode. It’s good to be watching and talking about Darkwing Duck again after all the time off!
Here’s the postcast we recommend: https://postatomichorror.wordpress.com/
AND here’s Sarah’s brand new Etsy store: https://www.etsy.com/shop/sarahbaggsmisc
Hope you have a great time. Look after each other.
& Stay Dangerous,

Bibleman! We did it. We recorded an episode about the low budget, high morality Christian TV show about beating up people with glowing swords. After last week’s episode was eaten by the computer we jumped back into the fray. Ma boi, DW will be back next week! Also, bonus episodes for Patreon out this week. Why not drop a buck or two into our hat and have a listen to ’em.
Go to https://www.thosehappyplaces.com/ to learn about that cool podcast I told you about.

We recorded a full episode exploring the baffling but charmingly sincere TV show Bibleman but it was too beautiful to live so the computer destroyed it and smashed it into bits. DON’T WORRY! We’ll record another episode about another episode of Bibleman for next week!
So, to fill the hole we’ve recorded an audio only Let’s Play of Darkwing Duck on the Nintendo Entertainment System. It’s so hard, so we’re playing the version of it on the Disney Afternoon Collection which was a handy rewind feature. Listen in awe as Sarah uses it literally hundreds of times!
Thanks guys, you’re the best.
Michael (and Sarah)
Are you doing well? I’m OK. Here’s an episode we recorded with Guest #1, internet celebrity Nick Mason! Man, he’s so much fun. We’ve really out done ourselves with guests lately, think we might have an episode or two without guests now just so we can relax.
Here’s Ben Folds on The Book Place, watch it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vAe-u3xOcQ4&t=458s
Cranny from Turtle Power Pod got engaged! That’s so exciting! Him and Natalie are so great together.
That’s about it!
Michael (+ Sarah)
Gosh, Sam King is a best! We could (and do) talk to her for hours! This episode went for 30 mins more but I was somewhat savage in the editing suite. Anyway, any time Sam King is on you’re getting classic Duck Blur. Follow her on Twitter if you don’t, she’s the best. https://twitter.com/samanthacking
There is a little weirdness with Sarah and my recording. During a couple of moments there was some weird feedback. I’ve edited out some bits and other bits where I couldn’t edit around, I’ve tried to make it sound as pleasant as I could. We’re still new at using the field recorder and don’t know its ins and outs just yet.
DuckTales 17 has been a blast. I’m glad it’s taking a three week break so I can giving my sides a chance to heal after splitting. If you haven’t seen any, go and watch it. Aussies, it’s on iTunes.
Here’s the link to that DuckTalks article I mention in the episode. https://ducktalks.com/2018/05/14/duckburg-cribs-launchpad-edition/
And here is the Jim Cummings Funny or Die video we mention at the start. So funny! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xKlot5KcFAg
Anyway, please donate to our Patreon and/or reveiw us on iTunes.

Tad Stones came on our lil’ Disney Duck podcast. That is incredible. Never did we imagine when we started this crazy endeavour years ago did we even imagine getting to talk to a true Disney legend. Tad Stones (along with his talented team) made Darkwing Duck, the show we watch! Not only did he come on the show but he traded puns with Sarah, explained ‘yeh, yeh, yeh’, joked around and put up with us for over two hours!
So, a massive thanks to Tad and I hope you guys love it as much as we did.
Oh man! Frank Angones is on the show! Have you seen how good that DuckTales 17 is? And Frank is the co-producer/story editor. He has the teleplay credit for both ‘Woo-oo!’ and ‘Beware The B.U.D.D.Y System’ which are two of my favourite episodes so far (love the new Gizmoduck and DW) He was a great sport doing the show on his one day off between a family trip to Japan and starting back at the duck mines, where he makes DuckTales.
As always, there is a few technical hiccups when Frank is on and today is no different. But it is the best sounding one yet, so much so that I don’t need to put a warning at the top of the show. The day after we recorded this episode our new recording equipment arrived which would have helped greatly. Next time, Frank, you’ll sound like a dream.
By the way, on the first episode Frank was on (80-something Metal Attraction), I asked him about a DuckTales ride at Disneyland and he replied something like ‘All I want is a DuckTales parade that I get to lead’. Well, the other day Disneyland had a DuckTales parade!! So, he gets to tick that dream off of his list. Although, he didn’t get to lead it, I guess.
If you listen closely, you’ll discover who is on next week. Yes, it’s very exciting!
Update: We talk about Emmys. Sadly, DT didn’t win any this year. But it doesn’t matter cos they brought back Michael Bell to play Quackerjack for like two lines and that’s the coolest thing in the damn world. Also they cast Bassem Youssef in the Egypt episode, so mad props for their casting choices.
Anyway, it’s heaps late and we have to record with another cool international guest tomorrow (not saying who, you’ll find out in like a month).
