In the early 90s, in the wake of The Simpsons, all the other networks decided that they also wanted some hot adult animated sitcoms. Capitol Critters was born out of that desire. It's about vermin living under the White House and, while it was never able to make the topical political jokes its premise demanded, it made up for that short-coming with…

We compared Baby Blues to Mission Hill so much that we decided to just talk about Mission Hill, the cartoon that is NOT based on a comic but rather on a comic artist. Enjoy the fictionalized life of a young Matt Groening and also despair that we don't live in a cool loft in a cool city with cool roommates.…

What is Baby Blues about? Well, it's not about a baby. Or any blues. Really, it's about America's favorite sitcom family: The Bittermans! Join us as we unravel why The Bittermans, er, Baby Blues failed to resonate with the futuristic TV audience of 2000 and instead ended up relegated to the Adult Swim zombie revival bloc.…
 
No, we’re not kidding— he’s HERE! Special Presentation is very proud to present the podcast debut of the one and only McGruff! But did you know, he almost wasn’t the one and only McGruff?

We had so much fun delving into the bizarre ways that video games get adapted into comics, we had to take another dive in! This time we’ve got more familiar faces like Mario and Zelda, some obscure ones like Plok and the Battletoads, and even REALLY obscure ones like Rad Gravity and Psycho Fox! Joining us to wax lyrical on Legend of Zelda is return…
 
Video Armageddon, our month-long look at failed video games, continues with Defenders of Dynotron City, a rare misfire from those beloved Monkey Island scribes over at LucasArts! This city of mutants is protected by buzzsaw girl, a guy with a detachable head, a monkey, a dog, and more! You have to wonder why the kids didn't go for it.…

Where do the toys come from? Have you ever wondered that? Well, some toys wonder that. In this episode, we look at the Disney Channel original film from 1983, "Where the Toys Come From," in which wind-up toys Peepers and Zoom take us on a magical tour of the Tomy toy factory and shows us how toys are conceived, designed, and assembled.

We're back to talking about Garfield. Ethan and Mike both remember the Napoleon of Garfield adaptations, the TV series Garfield and Friends, but this is... The Garfield Show, the French co-produced CGI show. It's also got Garfield. We look at two episodes, Fast Friends (wherein Garfield competes for food with a very fast ferret) and Long Lost Lyman…

I mean, there's eggs, there's chocolate... it's okay. In this episode, we look into the history of baked sugar diorama eggs and talk about which Sweet Pickles character comes to collect you…
 
There She Is!! (Korean: 떳다 그녀!!) is a South Korean Flash cartoon series produced by a three-person team and hosted on the Korean website SamBakZa. Based on comic strip 'One day' (Korean: 어떤날), that makes it fair game for our purposes! Let's check it out and learn about how cat/bunny love is not a crime!…
 
We're back discussing France's favorite short king, Asterix the Gaul. Last time, we spoke about the first Asterix film, which series creators Rene Goscinny and Albert Uderzo were not consulted about and which they hated so much that they got the potential sequel scrapped. But this later film, Asterix and the 12 Tasks, DID involve Goscinny and Uderz…
 
Mike decided to do something very stupid and did a deep dive on Twitter into 22 years of the webcomic Sinfest by Tatsuya Ishida, the famous early 00s dude bro comic that did a hard turn into sex negative second wave feminism in 2011 and then a harder turn into TERF maga chud Q-anon anti-vax lunacy in 2019. But could Sinfest be saved? In this episod…

Your hosts Mike and Ethan are no strangers to weird children’s books, as any fan of our coloring books episode knows. (Are there any?) This week we look back at 2018, a more innocent, pre-pandemic world, when the two hosts got together in the real world to record some fun videos about locally published children’s books! First we have a short subjec…
 
Way back in 2018, Mike and Ethan were messing around with some YouTube videos, and got into a huge digression about comic strips. That’s right, the podcast that always digresses from comic strips started as a digression INTO them! Witness the sticky conception and awkward birth of Special Presentation as we take you through our very first comic str…
 
Last week we looked at the comic strip Queer Visitors from the Land of Oz, so this week we're looking at a biopic of that strip's creator: L. Frank Baum. This made-for-TV movie starring John Ritter and Rue McClanahan was a favorite of Ethan's as a kid, so we see if it holds up. How much fiction does it mix with fact? Well, one thing is for sure: L.…
 
After L. Frank Baum's Wizard of Oz was a book and a play and a musical extravaganza, it was also a comic strip. Your favorite characters the scarecrow, the tin woodsman, the...uh... Jack Pumpkinhead, the gump, and (in theory) the wogglebug escape from Oz and encounter mundane real world situations where they dispense trivia. Queer Visitors from the…
 
This week, instead of looking at COMICS THAT GET TURNED INTO OTHER THINGS we're looking at OTHER THINGS THAT GET TURNED INTO COMICS... specifically video games! In case you didn't know this, there used to be these things called magazines and some of them were about video games. Mike literally only knows about Computer Gaming World magazine, so Etha…

Leapin' Lizards!!!! Little Orphan Annie's back! And this time, she's VERY animated... or at least as animated as Saturday day morning cartoon animation can get as Annie's ghost takes Daddy Warbucks on a whirlwind Christmas tour of the present and the future. No past, though.
 
Halloween continues into November as friend of the pod Steph Cherrywell joins us to talk about that family that's creepy and kooky and altogether ooky... it's the 1991 film version of the Addams Family, starring Raoul Julia, Angelica Huston, Christopher Lloyd, and the film debut of everybody's favorite goth girl Christina Ricci.

Oh, I’m sure you’ve heard the stories… exactly one year ago today, a bunch of podcasters got together, in this very spot, to watch Halloween specials and rate them good or bad. In fact, some say they’re still here to this day, watching things like The Witch Who Turned Pink, Casper’s Halloween, The Crown of Bogg, and even short subjects like Mysteri…
 
If you lived through the 1980s, then you probably remember Timer, a dancing, uh, apparently a lemon? Wearing a stovepipe hat? And singing about healthy eating? Well, he was a thing. But what was the origin of Timer? Well, turns out he came from this 1973 TV movie where he takes two children on a magical tour of their Uncle Carl's body like it's Osm…
