Griffin Rock’s cell tower is in dire need of replacement – but Mayor Luskey “invested” the infrastructure money in an inflatable Brash Ball stadium instead! Can the Rescue Bots and the Burns Family raise enough money with side gigs to fund a replacement? Why is this even their problem to fix? How many people watching this even remember the show Taxi? And what should you maybe not order from Temu? Join us this week for “Part-Time Heroes”!
It’s All Spark Day, and the Rescue Bots are excited to teach the people of Griffin Rock about their Cybertronian holiday! So what’s All Spark Day all about? Why doesn’t Heatwave want to celebrate? Why is there a “Parade of Metals”? And what’s that giant baby doing there!? Join us this week for “All Spark Day”!
Mayor Luskey is up for reelection, and the team convinces Chase to run against him – but when Chase wins, it turns out they’ve created a monster! How Lawful Neutral is TOO Lawful Neutral? Can the town survive Chase going Walter Peck on Doc Greene’s lab? And has Luskey learned one single lesson? Join us this week for “Mayor May Not”!
Whiskers the lion is kidnapped by a villain with a thing for problematic cultural appropriation — but with Quint Quarry still safely in jail, who could it be? Would you believe… LORD CHUMLEY!? What’s this G1 guy doing hassling the Rescue Bots? Why does he have extinct animals in his collection? And didn’t we JUST get an episode with that title? Join us this week for “Enemy of my Enemy”!
Everyone’s favorite Crime Druids are back in town, and they didn’t get the memo that the Rescue Bots are aliens — and now they’re determined to steal-slash-kidnap Quickshadow! Can they be stopped before they ruin the town’s Earliween parade? Will they blow the Rescue Bots’ cover? How deep under the Unit E bunker are these guys about to be buried? And wait… what’s “Earliween”? Join us this week for “Ghost in the Machine”!
Griffin Rock is invaded by the only villains worse than bird watchers: property investors! Can the town shoo them away before the Bots are discovered — or housing costs go out of control? What villain is back from an extended trip to Europe? And why is Cody suddenly invisible? Join us this week for “Vanishing Returns”!
The holidays still have everyone’s schedules out of whack, so this week we’re digging in our big red sack and pulling out a Patreon special from December 2019:
It’s the holiday season, and our Canadian host Rob realizes he had a lot of misconceptions about the US military as we go back to the 80s for a special Christmas episode of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero! Under cover of a charity toy drive, Cobra uses a shrink ray to infiltrate the Joe base and steal their vehicles, hoping to pin their ensuing attack on the Joes! Can the handful of Joes still on base for the holidays stop them? Why does Jack Nicholson have a parrot? Were all computer mainframes in the 80s orange? Join us this month for “Santa C.L.A.W.S Are Coming To Town”, and thank you so much for your support! Yo Joe!
Frankie’s found a new expansion pack for Griffin Rock Element Quest, the VR game that Cody and Blades got trapped in — so of course they’re going to go for another round! But what surprise was left in the new expansion’s code? Can Boulder get a library card? And how many video game references will have to be explained to Rob? Join us this week for “Back to Virtual Reality”!
Quickshadow is determined to train each of the Rescue Bots to operate as a team of one — even though there’s no I in Team! (Blades is gonna have to take that poster down.) But when they have to escort a hazardous shipment for Doc Greene, will her way of doing things really be better than their teamwork? Why did she think “Bootlatch” was a good code name? And who is absolutely not allowed to transport hazardous materials anymore? Join us this week for “Plus One”!
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”!
