Nathan Rabin's Happy Cast Episode 12: A Fanboy Knows a Hater (with Josh Fruhlinger!)


Strap on your nostalgia goggles and assemble your Funko Pops, it's another episode of Nathan Rabin's Happy Cast!

This episode, Nathan and Clint peer through the rose-colored VR glasses of Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One, desperately dig deep into the fractured cult psyche of Neil Breen's Pass Thru, and try to kick the habit of the '80s anti-drug crossover cartoon Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue

Meanwhile, Josh Fruhlinger (the Comics Curmudgeon himself) joins the party to wax poetic about the surprisingly solid Garfield: His 9 Lives and the acidic comic strip legacy of the Lockhorns!
