- We apologize for Luke literally shouting at our listeners. We also think it's hilarious and were never going to edit it out.
- Evan recounts that the gecko-like silhouette screams "You could save 15% on car insurance!" when everyone knows that with Geico you could save 15% or more.
- The Fate of the Furious, the eighth installment in the blockbuster franchise, was released on April 14th, 2017 in North America. This episode was recorded almost exactly a month earlier on March 18th, 2017.
- This episode features several, and ultimately final, accidental references to "High Rise Hair Raiser", which is a bonus "Episode 0" episode which we've made accessible to a certain tier of Patreon donors. As we mentioned back when it last happened in Episode 2 it is absolutely not our intent to casually mention content that's not available to everyone. We're deeply sorry about that and it won't happen again.
- Evan also mentions that Ingrid Ignition "wouldn't be out of place on Wacky Racers". If you were interested in hearing him and Luke talk more about that you can go check out our filler recording for last week, which is 100% free!
EPISODE 7 - "The Fall Dog / The Scooby Coupe"
The New Scooby and Scrappy-Doo Show
Season 1, Episode 10
It's a week later than expected, but how appropriate that twice the wait means double the amount of Scooby-Doo! Well, not technically, since The New Scooby and Scrappy Doo Show actually splits up a normal twenty-ish minutes of TV into two separate mysteries. But how could that possible be a bad thing?
While we're asking questions, how much could Evan, a 26-year-old with a barely used learner's permit, have to contribute about two strongly automotive episodes? How much humour, and we use the term generously, can Luke wring from a single rhyming pun? After last week's all-filler, some killer installment have we managed to transition into one that's more killer, surprising amount of shiller?
We also want to welcome our latest featured artist in Tricia Ocock, who illustrated the title card and who you can learn more about at the "Artists" page!
- So we had absolutely no idea that "The Fall Dog" was in reference to an 80s action show called The Fall Guy. It starred Lee Majors, which is obviously the inspiration for the character of C. Majors.
- Bobby Mogul weirdly looks like a cross between both of Brad Neely's The Professor Brothers, who now star on his show China, IL. His dynamic with Mickey Hack also reminded Evan of the duo.
- Outside of the titular film franchise, the Looney Tunes short "Falling Hare", which we've embedded below, is probably the definitive (and most terrifying) portrayal of gremlins in popular culture.
- Evan swears he knows about other celebrity couples outside of the long-broken-up Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez. Really, he does.
- Of course "hoisted by his own petard" was first coined by William Shakespeare. What popular expression wasn't?
- To be fair, the Greendale Human Being is scarier than 86% of Scooby-Doo monsters.
- We realize that Matthew McConaughey's Lincoln commercials actually started a little while back, but the new ones are just as ridiculous.
