The trio talk about the many great aspects of the film including: the breathtaking Pride Lands; the voice-casting of the characters; the epic soundtrack of the film; whether Scar is truly one of the most underrated villains in Disney history; the trauma kids endured thanks to Mufasa's death; Timon and Pumbaa: the greatest friends a lion could have; the importance of Nala; the lack of finishing the job by Shenzi, Banzai, and Ed; the memorable hero's journey that Simba takes, and if the combination of this film, Aladdin, and Beauty and the Beast is the greatest 3-film stretch in Disney history. So grab your grubs, kick back in the shade, and leave your worries behind as Steve, Mirandia, and Andy continue their trek through the Disney Renaissance. Hakuna Matata!

Rushmore, panelists Chad Campbell, James Gruenberg, Kyle Litke, Mirandia Berthold & Andy Atherton join moderator Steve Riddle to discuss which Disney Princesses deserve a place on their respective lists. Is Cinderella a no-brainer? What about Belle? Does Moana grab a spot? Does Ariel or Tiana deserve a place? After that, they discuss which Disney Villains will be part of that grouping. Can you argue that Scar shouldn't get a spot? Will Ursula be included? Is Dr. Facilier in the conversation? What about Jafar & Hades?

    This week on It Was a Thing on TV we look at sham marriages, outer space and Corinne Tate from Soap acting alongside Danny Thomas.   First, McCormick from Hardcastle and McCormick and Audrey Griswold #3 star in a sitcom about marrying someone to ensure they aren't deported from the country.  Of course, hilarity ensues.  The best moment of the show came at the very end of the final episode, when everybody knew the writing was on the wall.   Next, outer space science fiction was everywhere in the late 70s--in your movie theater, on public television, in primetime, even on Saturday mornings.  The crew at Filmation gave us their take on space adventures with Jason of Star Command, which featured a veteran from an outer space classic.   Finally, Soap was riding high in 1980.  Its producers gave who would likely be the 6th most popular cast member on that show her own vehicle, with a cast that includes a comedy icon and a future comedy icon.  I'm a Big Girl Now was one (season) and done.   To keep track of us on our social media feeds visit our Linktree page at www.linktr.ee/itwasathingontv to give our feeds a follow.   Timestamps 1:22 - I Married Dora 49:49 - Classic Commercial Break 54:09 - Jason of Star Command 2:00:27 - Computer Voice Lady Intro to Episode 268 2:00:49 - I'm a Big Girl Now

    This week it's the grand finale of Marvel Month on It Was a Thing on TV as we look at Electro playing a single dad and Tony Stark doing a season on Saturday Night Live.   First, we start with one of the more recent shows this podcast has covered.  Jamie Foxx, David Alan Grier and others showed a lot of promise when this debuted, but the plug was quickly pulled at Netflix.  Dad, Stop Embarrassing Me! was just a bland comedy which relied on many tropes.   Then, Marvel Month concludes with possibly the second-worst season of SNL ever.  We talked about probably the worst season of SNL on episode 97, about the 1980-81 era.  Now, we look at the 1985-86 season, a transition season of sorts, when most of the cast lasted just this one season if not less, and the writers lasted just as long, ushering in one of the best eras in the show's lengthy history.   To keep track of us on our social media feeds visit our Linktree page at www.linktr.ee/itwasathingontv to give our feeds a follow.   Timestamps 0:39 - Intro to Episode 264 2:42 - Dad, Stop Embarrassing Me! 41:22 - Classic Commercial Break 45:16 - Intro to Episode 265 47:32 - Saturday Night Live (‘85-'86 Season)
