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!

This time we’re scrapping the bottom of the barrel to bring you another pair of feature related shorts! We have Mater and the Ghostlight (2006) and Your Friend the Rat (2007). One is absolutely awful and the other is about rats so we’ll let you figure it out. Come help the Asterixar boys get through this because we can see the (ghost)light at the end of the tunnel!
Come warm your cockles with a new pair of shorts! This time we’re chatting about Mike’s New Car (2002) and Jack-Jack Attack (2005). We’ll get into car talk, baby talk, and an impromptu Ratzenberger Report! Plus at the end there’s a tease of something special in the works. Come on down to Asterixar town!
Straight from the headquarters, the Asterixar boys are broadcasting a brand new pod for 2015’s Inside Out! There’ll be talk of how to properly deal with your emotions, embarrassing childhood experiences, and whether or not random boners is still a thing. All that good plus an extra long Ratzenberger report on this banger of an episode!
We gathered the Three Caballeros to break down Pixar’s beautiful new movie, Coco! Come for the Spanish lessons from Geekstrum’s Frankie, and stay for the discussion of local TV lawyers. Don’t worry, we talk about that lousy Frozen short too. We may be poco loco but at least we keep it lively! Spoilers starting around 29:00.
On a very special Asterixar podcast, we discuss John Lasseter (chief creative officer) taking a leave of absence from Pixar before we get into the meat of Monsters University. Plus the debut of a brand new segment: The Ratzenberger Report. Come hear us give it the ole college try!
A very wise man has crafted a theory about a formula, ever present in Disney animated films and doubly so in Pixar movies of late. The Grumpy/Spunky formula paints the picture of an eager main character teaming up with a grounded reluctant companion journeying to a far off destination to affect some plot important change in the prior. Coco, much like Inside Out and Moana before it, once again sets its protagonist out on a seemingly similar journey, but what follows is one of the best crafted family focused tearjerkers in years.
