Episode Notes

🎄 It’s 1980, and we’re having a hiccuping fit that can literally move mountains. Join us on a trip back to the World of Filmation for a barely Christmassy Snow White sequel featuring Seven Friendly Giants, each with their own involuntary reflexes.

Kristi (@BadPrincessMov) and Bri (@wallabri) from Bad Princess Movies.

1. Bad Princess Movies on Happily Ever After.  

2. Lou Scheimer: Creating the Filmation Generation.  

3. Cash-grab home videos including The Reef, Ratatoing, and Toei Animation’s The Little Mermaid, which I discovered in a Toys “R” Us in 1989.

5. The Thief and the Cobbler.  

6. Am I Hot or Not?
