Stasis Pod Episode 178: Turbo Teen: Dark Rider and the Wolves of Doom

Will Bulkhead survive? Guess you’ll have to wait to find out, because surprise! It’s April Fool’s!

The same 1984 fall TV season that brought us Transformers also brought us another show about someone turning into a car — horribly, grotesquely turning into a car, in a way no child at the time would ever unsee. This week we take a look at Turbo Teen, his Frank Welker-voiced nemesis, his also-Frank Welker-voiced dog, and the many, many, way too many times an episode he transforms into a car and back! Join us this April Fool’s for “Dark Rider and the Wolves of Doom”!
