"Bonnie, my book report" "Hey friends wanna check out those spiders at the pet shop? What spiders? Ohhhhh spiiiders..." "NoooooOOOOOOO!!!!! My fire monstaaaaaaa!!!!!"

    Is there something wrong with the "Once you listen to the show please share your thoughts on this thread on our message board" link at the top of this article? When I click it it takes me to the message board but all it displays is "You are not authorised to read this forum." Or maybe it's just me.

    This episode was awesome! It brought back so many memories from when I was a kid. I immediately went to Amazon.uk and bought both of Dan's books. Thanks for doing this Brad, you've made a fellow fan very happy.

    This is awesome. I haven't listened to the full episode yet, but it sounds super fun so far. Now all BD has to do is get the cast from the '90s Spider-Man TAS for a retrospective podcast. Tbh I'd be happy if it was just Christopher Daniel Barnes yelling "MAAAARY JAAAAAAAANE!" repeatedly.

    I've not seen much of this show (child of the 90's) but these two seem like too very friendly, genuine people.

    Thanks George. This one ranks up there with getting to interview Sal Buscema and surprising him with Stan Lee on the line.

    Loved this! I definitely know who Hans Conreid is. Hook is my favorite Disney villain and he voiced Chameleon in the 'Seven Little Superheroes' episode. Ha-cha!
