Flopcast 350: Memorial Show Part 2 - Crackers and Cranberries

The Flopcast

Release Date: 01/20/2019

This week we wrap up our tribute to all the pop culture stars we lost in 2018. (And just in time, since our 2019 list is already growing...) From the music world, we say goodbye to a Cranberry, a Bay City Roller, way too many drummers, the guy who wrote the Wonder Woman TV theme song, and the Queen of Soul. From animation and kids TV, we recall some of the folks behind SpongeBob, Sesame Street, Far Out Space Nuts, the California Raisins, and Schoolhouse Rock. Our list of writers and directors includes people who worked on Star Wars, The Princess Bride, Mazes and Monsters, Howard the Duck, and yes, Cop Rock. Then we have our beloved 1980s wrestlers, including members of the Hart Foundation and the British Bulldogs, our favorite Soviet bad guy, and one of the original Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. Plus we remember stars from radio, comedy, science, and lots more. (If you thought we'd forget the host of Commander USA's Groovie Movies, you must be new around here.) So grab a coffee and join us. Next week we'll get back to Flopcast business as usual. (That is, giggling about stupid stuff.)
