    Episode #223: Space Jam LIVE!

    I did a thread a few years ago when Paul announced that they were doing Mr. Nanny and Suburban Commando, and it was basically cataloguing all of the bullshit that Hogan has spewed in his life.

    Episode #223: Space Jam LIVE!

    Animaniacs is coming back? I loved that when I was younger, never knew why it got cancelled, until I actually read what happened to it, and as it turns out, it's this guy named Jamie Kellner who did it, and Jamie Kellner is a shit dick. He had a reputation for cancelling popular shows, because he didn't like them. He was the man who had the biggest hand in killing the silver age of Warner Bros. animation. So, if you liked: Batman: The Animated Series, and all of the shows in relation to that Animaniacs Freakazoid Tiny Toon Adventures Pinky and the Brain All but one, cancelled by Kellner. Apparently, because those shows were more popular among adolescents, and teens, Kellner decided "They're cartoons, cartoons are for little kids", and took a scythe to them, because of the advertisers, who were selling products aimed at younger kids. The show that wasn't cancelled, Pinky and the Brain, got poochied, when they added Elmyra Duff, and called it "Pinky, The Brain, and Elmyra", and it died a slow agonising death. And, just to add the cherry to the shit dick cake, Kellner is also the man who killed World Championship Wrestling, despite it being the highest rated show on TNT, because "I just don't like wrestling". Eric Bischoff had formed a consortium to buy the company from AOL-Time Warner, Kellner said "Okay, you can have the name, the trademarks, and the library, but I'm cancelling the TV shows, and not providing distribution", without that, it was worthless. So, instead of selling WCW for a huge amount of money and having 4 hours of high rated programming on the schedule, he cancelled the show, and Vince McMahon bought WCW for $2.7 million... at one point, WCW was worth close to $500 million. So, fuck Jamie Kellner.

    The best one for me is Street Fighter: The Movie: The Video Game This is Super Street Fighter II, the game the movie is based on Now here's Street FIghter: The Movie: The Video Game This raises the question. What's the point? Well, Capcom's Street Fighter franchise currently has over THIRTY games in it... but are somehow still on Street Fighter 5. And secondly, this game has the added bonus of Kylie Minogue in a swimsuit, even though she was wearing camo in the movie, which I'm alright with.

    I'm just surprised that Hulk Hogan, with his penchant for bullshit, hasn't come out and said "I was supposed to be in Space Jam, brother! But it was going to be called 'Space SLAM', but I was about to join the nWo, and they didn't want a bad guy as the star brotherdudejack".

    Do you know what would have made this even the tiniest bit better. Michael Jordan leaves to play baseball, and then the Monstars take the talent of the rest of the Chicago Bulls, dooming them to an entire season of being the Washington Generals of the NBA. However, Jordan gets left alone, because he's a "baseball player". From there, you actually make it personal for Jordan, because not only does he need to save the Looney Tunes, he needs to save his friends too. On top of that, there's also the emotional aspect of having to play against his former team-mates, who have now become grotesque monsters.

    I love a Cadbury's Caramel. You get a box of Minature Heroes, and the Caramel's have all gone, I'm gonna start swinging.

    If you thought Lola Bunny was weirdly sexualised for a kids movie about basketball... these were actual adverts in the UK, for a chocolate bar.

    Episode #223: Space Jam LIVE!

    Paul talking about the Monstars "stealing the soul" of the basketball players has made me realise something. This movie completely ripped off Mortal Kombat. Mortal Kombat, an otherworldly antagonist comes to earth, taking the souls of great fighters for himself, forcing Lord Raiden to put together a plucky team of heroes in an effort to defeat him In Space Jam, an otherworldly antagonist comes to earth, taking the souls of great basketball players for himself, forcing Bugs Bunny to put together a plucky team of heroes in an effort to defeat him. On top of that, Lola, the highly skilled female character has to rebuff the advances of Bugs Bunny, a super-famous male character, before realising that he's a great guy all along? SONYA BLADE AND JOHNNY FUCKING CAGE. Also, the importance of water. Showing that the Looney Tunes had the talent all along in Space Jam, and how Liu Kang defeat Sub Zero in Mortal Kombat! Mortal Kombat came out in 1995 Space Jam came out in 1996 More imporantly, Warner Bros, the company that owns the Looney Tunes, also own New Line Cinema, who made Mortal Kombat. That's why there wasn't a sequel, SPACE JAM: ANNIHILATION, because Michael Jordan found out that Shao Kahn was gonna break his neck 10 minutes into the movie, and Bugs Bunny was going to be played by James Remar.

    So, let's carry on the discussion. What sports did you do? I did: - Rugby, I played prop forward as well as an all encompassing "as soon as he gets the ball, fucking twat him" - Football, (actual football, not the armoured rugby football), I was a goalkeeper - Cricket, where I was labelled by one trainer "The most aggressive batsman I have ever witnessed in my 20 years coaching this sport" - Various throwing sports - MMA, I didn't ever get to fight because of injuries, but I know some stuff - Muay Thai, see above

    My favourite part of this episode is when Paul started talking about sports, and most of the audience had no idea what he was talking about. Then I realised that must be what it's like when I talk about Mortal Kombat. "You see, that's this woman named 'Kronika', she's the keeper of time, and she's pissed at Raiden for fucking with the timeline in MK9, so she's coming after him, and brings people from the past to help her..."

    This looks brilliantly awful. The fact that Matt Bloom was told "You're a wrestler, you can already act" adds the cherry on top. They could literally do "Wrestler Month". This, any Steve Austin movie, any of the non-Cena Marine movies, and cap it off with Ready to Rumble.
  13. https://www.earwolf.com/episode/space-jam-live/ HOW DID THIS GET MADE? #233 FEBRUARY 13, 2020 Live from Chicago, Paul, June, and Jason discuss the 1996 live action/animated sports comedy Space Jam starring Michael Jordan. They talk about Michael Jordan being unfazed when he meets the Looney Tunes, horny Bugs Bunny, soul stealing aliens, Bill Murray elevating the movie, the definition of a “jam,” and much more.

  14. I think it's the energy of the live crowd that causes it. Jason feeds off that, and is a more anarchic perfomer, so you don't know what he's gonna say, what he's gonna do, and because of that, will just blurt out a line there and then. Which is why June is great for the live shows, because she's that calming influence. So, she might get interrupted now and then, but she'll bring it back down, to make Jason much more impactful. To put it into music terms, if this were a Metallica concert, Jason's "Battery", frenetic, fast paced, blugeoning power, June's "Nothing Else Matters", a nice ballad but has a punch when it needs it. If I were assign one to Paul, he's "Enter Sandman", it's not a Metallica show without "Enter Sandman"
  15. Time for another theory. Maybe this whole movie was an origin story for Home Improvement. Gepetto managed to craft a real boy with his high quality tools, and set up a DIY empire. Gepetto passed away, and left his tool empire to a puppet that is the closest thing he has to a son, the company ended up getting sold to an American company called Binford. However, the deal hinged on one caveat, Pinocchio wanted a new father figure. After being adopted by various people within the Binford corporate stucture and eventually, the responibility fell to company pitchman, Tim "The Tool Man" Taylor. However, things started going awry when Tim met his wife, and they had two sons, that's where the problems started, because the sons were getting older, but their "brother" wasn't, and they started asking questions, so Pinnochio decided to fuck off out of it before this whole house of cards came crashing down, and then he went on to voice Simba in the Lion King. So, what I'm saying is, everything that stars Jonathan Taylor Thomas is a long-running, nightmarish Pinnochio franchise.
