Cartoons of the 1970’s - DIM 123

Through the magic of syndication and reruns, most of us have had the pleasure of being exposed to entertainment that predated our births. Whether it's an episode of "Yogi Bear" or "Jabberjaw", it's fun to experience what the generations before us watched and enjoyed.


If you're lucky enough to be able to do this, it's fun is to talk about some of those cartoons with someone who enjoyed them when they were NEW, and it's even MORE fun if that person is a fellow podcaster and friend!


In this special "Daydream: After Dark", we're joined by "Kip" a.k.a. John Golden, from the hit podcast "Geekvice" to discuss some of the insane and bonkers cartoons of the 1970's!

The Dark Crystal - DIM 122

During the late 1970's and early 1980's, there was an absolute flood of "High Fantasy" Movies that wowed our imaginations with their fantastic worlds of wonderment and blew our young minds with engaging and thrilling stories! And one of the high points of this cinematic deluge, was "The Dark Crystal"!!


Envisioned, created and written by Jim Henson on a literal dark and stormy night in the late 1970's, "The Dark Crystal" was a hit fantasy film where 100% of the sets, effects, and "actors" were either puppets or practical effects! Telling the Story of the mythical world of Thra, where the creatures of this world are in a state of slowly dying as the power of The Dark Crystal slowly fades. The corrupt and evil Skeksis have corrupted and abused the crystal to the point where it can no longer sustain the planet. An ancient prophecy and an unlikely hero in the form of a nearly extinct race called the Gelfings are the inhabitants of Thra's only hope.


Please enjoy as catch up with one of the original founding members of DIM, the one and only Mike Golka, discuss this amazing film in the light of its upcoming prequel series "The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance" being released on Netflix, And we enjoy another round of DIM games!!
