Plus some more of our favorite ‘Italianism’ and stories of malicious compliance. If you have a voice in your head telling you not to listen to this pod just shout “Silenzio Bruno!” and press play.

Come join us as we put a bow on the Toy Story series and discuss the final(?) installment, Toy Story 4. We’re joined by Jared, the ‘pod-brother’ himself, to help us get into the high and lows of the series while we entertain some important questions like “How do you kill a toy?” and what the future holds for Pixar. All that plus Cuji’s failed date and a potential farewell to Ratzenberger. It’s been a fun journey so thanks for being our partner along the way!
Embark on a magical quest with the Asterixar duo and special guest Frankie as we chat about Onward! Like any good adventure, our trek is filled with discussions of the pegasus vs. feral unicorns, our dream vans, plus dungeons, dragons, and drive-ins! All that plus plenty of brotherly love. So grab your wizard staff, pop in that Valhalla mix tape, and let the journey begin!
It’s the return of your favorite Pixar Boys! Help us shake off the rust and get back into a rhythm as we discuss Pixar’s movie Soul. We’ll break down proper barbershop etiquette, the difference between jazz and soul, and whether or not this is a kids movie. Every pod has a soul. You’re about to find ours.
Drop in for a “quickie” as the Asterixar bros chat about another pair of shorts: “Burrow” and “Playdate with Destiny.” But first we break down the trailer for Pixar’s next feature, “Luca.” On this jumbo shorts pod we’re talking being Italian, getting in touch with our fursonas, and favorite Simpsons episodes! We’re here for a good time, not a long time so come join in the fun!
We’ve reached the end of our journey and the Asterixar crew is taking a look back on where we’ve been. We’ll discuss the best and worst that Pixar has to offer along with the definitive rankings of all the features. All that plus some Asterixar specific rankings from all the content we’ve covered. It’s been a wild ride full of laughter and tears but all good things must end. Maybe we’ll meet again in the future but for now, so long partners!
Life’s a beach and then you drive! That nonsensical motto sums up Cars 3 perfectly. Come join the Asterixar pit crew as we break down a needless sequel to a needless franchise. Plus we get into talks about Larry the Cable Guy’s saved mp3 files and the return of Johnny English! It’s our last Pixar movie to discuss for a long time so enjoy it while you can. Shout out to Humpy Wheeler!
It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s the Asterixer Men back to talk about Incredibles 2! We’re joined by Geekstrum’s Frankie to talk about the latest and greatest installment in the super franchise. We also touch on some of the themes of the movie like toxic masculinity/fandom and living in a world of stunted adolescence. With all that we still find time to talk about alien octopuses and what a transistor even is. But don’t worry, we talk about the adorable Bao short at the end. This episode has it all!
[Spoilers at 24 minutes. Bao talk at 1:15]
In what looks like our final pair of shorts for the foreseeable future, the Asterixar Bunch goes out with a bang. We break down 2017’s Oscar nominated Lou and the various toys we got from our dentists growing up. After that we get into the new attractions opening this summer at Disneyland for Pixar Pier along with some additions we’d like to see. The shorts may be over but our love for them will never die!
We’re finding our way back for a look at Finding Dory with a return of our dear friend Chelsea! She’s joining the gang to discuss clumsy whales, husband crabs, and busted birds. All that plus an ending that may have been a bit too much. Don’t forget to give it a listen!
