Holiday scheduling is A Whole Thing, so this week we’re presenting one of our Patreon episodes.
With Godzilla Minus One in theaters and Monarch: Legacy of Monsters now streaming, we’re looking back at a much, much earlier attempt to bring Godzilla to the West: the Hanna-Barbera Godzilla cartoon! The Calico ends up on a mysterious island off the coast of Canada where a cobra-like monster called Axor has been hypnotizing shipwrecked humans into building him a temple! Can Pete and Godzooky save them from the creature’s control? And is Godzilla able to do anything without Pete narrating it for the audience? Join us this week for “The Beast of Storm Island”!
Iacon Underground Patreon Episode #63: Godzilla: "The Beast of Storm Island"
A mysterious car follows Chase and Heatwave back to the firehouse after another Ground Bridge malfunction, and they keep saving people before the Rescue Bots can step in! Who’s behind the wheel — and why does it take so long for everyone to reach the obvious conclusion that they’re Cybertronian? Can Cody and Frankie keep up with a toddler who’s too smart for her own good? And what’s even better than a title drop? Join us this week for “Arrivals”!
The Rescue Bots are getting used to the idea of everyone on Griffin Rock knowing their secret — but can they depend on them to keep it? Why is the new Ground Bridge to the Academy site acting up? Can Blades get people to join his fan club? And what’s the best kind of peanut butter? Join us this week as we do some “Bridge Building”!
Back in Griffin Rock, the Very Good Boys of the Rescue Bots have been dragging their heels on the whole reveal-yourselves-to-the-humans thing — but an invasion of some less friendly aliens gives them a chance to show that they really do come in peace! Can they save the day before any humans get eaten? What exactly has Optimus been up to since the last time he called? And does Chase have what it takes to be a bestselling author? Join us this month as we head into Rescue Bots Season 4 with “New Normal”!
Before we return to Griffin Rock, we’re taking a trip over to Japan for their version of “Beast Hunters”, Triple Combination: Transformers Go! What’s the deal with this largely-forgotten bit of Transformers fiction? When did time travel become a perfectly ordinary thing that the Aligned-universe Autobot could just do? And how much story can they squeeze in between transformation sequences? Join us this week for the first two episodes of Go!, “Triple Combination! Swordbot – Samurai!” and “Pursue! The Legendiscs!” GATTAI!
This is it: The final episode of Robots in Disguise! Optimus Prime’s team fights to stop the invasion on Earth while the Bee Team works to expose the Autobot High Council and free Cybertron from their mind control! How can they pull it all off in a single episode? How many plot threads will suddenly be tied to the High Council? And will the writers remember that this season is still called “Combiner Force”? Join us this week for “Freedom Fighters”!
Optimus Prime returns to Earth to warn the Bee Team about a fascist takeover of Cybertron — just in time for it to become everyone’s problem! Can they stop the New Cybertron Order from invading Earth? Are they willing to trust Steeljaw to help them? And how many returning Special Guest Autobots can they stuff into this episode? Join us this week for the penultimate episode of Robots in Disguise, “Enemy of My Enemy”!
All aboard! In a Shocktober special, Dave and Rob punch their ticket for the 1973 creature feature Horror Express! Part Hammer movie, part Doctor Who episode, and part Lovecraft adaption, it’s the tale of two classic horror stars, a fake Rasputin, and a bunch of smooth-brained dead meat! Plus: special guest star Telly Savalas!
Dropforge and the Cybertron Police arrive on Earth to arrest some fugitives — but they’re not after Decepticons, they’re after the Bee Team! Can Strongarm get to the bottom of this mess? Can Bulkhead deal with Steeljaw on his own while everyone else’s hands are cuffed? And why is Dropforge just a little guy? Join us this week for “Five Fugitives”!
A Decepticon with a bioweapon makes most of the Bee Team severely ill — just in time for Special Guest Star Bulkhead to show up! Can he and Grimlock catch her on their own and cure the others? Can Denny and Russell keep a delirious Strongarm from blowing their cover? And will someone please pay attention to Sideswipe? Join us this week for “Sick as a Bot”!
