Nerd Lunch Podcast 13: Cartoon Crushes

Rielly joins CT and Pax to discuss characters that would animate our cels, so to speak, if we were also cartoons. Find out who we choose as the one to reject, the one who got away, the ideal bad girl/guy, and the true love. Also listen for the patented TAG Network creepiness detector to alert when we consider the ages of some picks, discuss “He-Man’s sword”, delve into cross species dating, and think about the prospect of cartoon babies. Plus in the most unexpected twist of the week, one of the Nerd To-Do Lists includes a marathon… in real life… involving actual running.

    Great episode. Awesome topic idea. She-Ra is still my number one cartoon crush. And I agree with you CT, there is something about The Baroness that makes her very hot. In the recent GI: Joe live action movie Sienna Miller made a very hot and sexy Baroness, but she was missing that heavy Russian accent the Baroness had from the cartoon. And she should have had that accent.

    Teela is also great. Betty Rubble would be a great wife. Also more recent Francine Smith from 'American Dad' is all kinds of hot. Anywho see you next week!

    I had prepared my picks before I was forced to bail out on this episode. CT & Pax asked that I throw them up here for some discussion.

    The one who likes you more than you like them: Velma Dinkley from Scooby Doo

    The one who got away: Erin Esurance

    The bad girl: Stormer of the Misfits from Jem & the Holograms

    The true love: Barbara Gordon (Batgirl / Oracle)

    I also was originally scheduled to pick Kristin's blind date. From her appearance on Episode 110 of The Atomic Geeks Podcast, I remembered Kristin's affinity for Archer and Brock Samson. So my logic was to pair her up with the prototype himself, Race Bannon. As an added bonus, Kristin might be able to help us figure out which way Race swings.

    See? A practical demonstration of what happens when you're so overextended that you can't find your butt with a piece of toilet paper… As we all know, The Tyler Gang is enjoying its retirement. Look in Jack's Hideout for the dog story. Sorry.

    I, too, have been deprived of this Stirling Archer guy, although from Kristin's discription, it sounds like if you've seen any early James Bond, you already know him.

    I stopped watching cartoons when my kids did, so I don't have detailed recollection of many characters. Video game girls are animated, and I like them all, though I can't think of any crushes. If you've read about my childhood, you know that I am accustomed to intelligent, capable women who assert their equality not by stridently demanding it, but simply acting as though it, defacto, is. Virtually all video game babes are like this, and I usually take a girl to play when the option is offered. Their skills are usually more precise and technical, which enhances my enjoyment of the game, but probably because I'd be 40 years older than any of them, I don't have "crushes." I have a dog that chases cars, but he couldn't drive one if he caught it.

    Speaking of dogs and video games, check out the chatboard at the Tyler Gang for the tale of Dude the Insane Beagle's video game adventure. LMFAO!

    Kristin, I have encountered the effect that you describe happening to you at the comic shop. When I mention my religion (Taoist) around young people, or my military service (Vietnam) around people my own age, they often try to quiz me about it. It's obvious that they want to validate their own lives by "proving" that I'm lying about my experience. The boys are probably terrified that they'll be out-geeked by a girl… Arrrrrrrgh! How could they go on??? Respond with, "Well, what do you think?" Or, do what I do, and call them out for it.

    Again, I don't know how you guys make this stuff fun, but keep it up!

    If Lieutenant M'Ress is good enough for animated Scotty high on an alien love potion, who am I to argue?
