Non-Bluth: Nelvana Animation Discussion
Happy Life Day, Everyone! And what better way to celebrate Life Day than with a new Non-Bluth episode talking about Nelvana, the studio responsible for underground Sci-Fi animation such as A Cosmic Christmas, Romie-0 and Julie-8, Rock & Rule, Intergalactic Thanksgiving, Star Wars: Droids, Star Wars: Ewoks, and yes, even the animated segment from The Star Wars Holiday Special. Joining us is special guest Avery, who, having a unique history with the studio, kindly shares his experiences of visiting Nelvana in its earlier days. We also talk at length about the various shows that Avery and ourselves grew up with from this extremely unique Canadian production house that rarely gets the recognition it deserves in the history of animation.

Non-Bluth: The Swan Princess
This is our idea of fun, talking about The Swan Princess. Sara has never seen it before, Dax has. Worlds collide, people are swans, and frogs are voiced by John Cleese. This is a magical tale about royalty and upper class living/lifestyles, but what do you expect from a movie directed by a man named "Richard Rich"? This Non-Bluth entry also has some interesting connections with a few Don Bluth films that we discuss a plenty. So does it hold up? Or does it fall from the sky like a wounded swan? Join us for the sweetest animated story of an arranged marriage ever told. We give it eight swans out of ten (probably).

Don Bluth's Filmation Years on Milkshakes and Mimosas
We had a blast guesting on the Riverdale podcast Milkshakes and Mimosas with host Andrew Roebuck. We talked all about Don Bluth's time at Filmation working on Archie and His New Pals, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Fantastic Voyage, Will the Real Jerry Lewis Please Sit Down, and of course, the Groovie Goolies! Since we never extensively covered Don's Filmation years on TBTWBANBTB, we're excited for you all to listen. Find Milkshakes and Mimosas in Riverdale and everywhere you get your podcasts! **Edit: There was a snafu previously where the few most recent Milkshakes and Mimosas episodes weren't distributing properly beyond just Anchor and Spotify. The issue is fixed now, so here's the iTunes link for the reupload as well.

Bluth Pod Update (Plus a Completely Unrelated Discussion About Animal Crossing)
We might as well change the name of our podcast to The Blath, the Whole Blath, and Nothing But the Blath...ers, because this episode is probably 90% about Animal Crossing (which is in no way related to Don Bluth). Sure, we intended for it to be an update on our lives and what's in store for the podcast, but it turns out our podcast updates are short and we have no lives outside of Tom Nook's happy version of capitalism. And you probably don't either, if you've been social distancing properly. But we hope this episode satisfies your need (was there any?) for our witty banter, or at least our familiar meandering tangents, and yes we do actually bring up animation of sorts! Do we lose our minds a little bit? Who can say, because who among us has any mind left these days? Links: There is no movie to watch this time.

Episode 15: Bartok the Magnificent
I tell you what, you'll be glad you joined us on this episode of The Bluth, the Whole Bluth, and Nothing But the Bluth, because we're Bartalkin' Bartok the Magnificent with our good buddy, Chris Bramante! Since this is the only sequel (prequel?) to any of Don Bluth's films that the Don himself directed (and Gary too!), we felt justified in devoting a whole episode to that humorous Hank Azarian bat and his Kelsey Grammerian bear friend. Get ready for singing (maybe), Simpsons/Futurama references (most likely), and some loose Russian history (there's an outside chance). So strap yourself in for an episode that's simply B-A-R-T— OK! (wait....) I mean Magnificent, simply Magnificent! ----- Do you have a Don Bluth related story or thoughts on any of his films that you would like to share with our pod?

Episode 14: Anastasia
On this very special Russian history fueled episode of The Bluth, the Whole Bluth, and Nothing But the Bluth, come with us and our guest, Chris Bramante, on a Journey to the Past! Mostly because we recorded this episode right before quarantine so it feels like a hundred years ago. We had the pleasure of discussing Don Bluth and Gary Goldman's first venture with Fox Animation Studios, Anastasia. Do we talk about how great this movie is? Perhaps. Do we break into song? Possibly. Who can even remember? If you're listening to this In the Dark of the Night, Once Upon a December (seven months after we release it), then flip a light on why don't you? You can Learn to Do It. If we can learn to do it! You can learn to do it too! ----- Also, do you have a Don Bluth related story or thoughts on any of his films that you would like to share with our pod?

Non-Bluth: Balto
It's another NON-BLUTH, and we're finishing up the Amblimation trilogy by talking all things Balto. Somehow, we also spend a good chunk of time talking about Super Mario Brothers, Harry Potter, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Tarzan, and Cats (2019), but trust us, it all comes back to Balto. From the epic true story it's based on to the voice cast, live-action bookends, and disturbingly hot animals, we discuss this film and all its tangents like you've never heard before.

Non-Bluth: FernGully: The Last Rainforest
It's another NON-BLUTH episode, and this time we're diving into the classic 90s film, FernGully: The Last Rainforest! Along with returning guest Steven Ray Morris, we discuss the memorable songs, the production's rivalry with Disney, and the environmental message that's still relevant today. We also talk way too much about sexy goo. Please join us for a while in the secret world of FernGully.

We also wade through the plot of everyone’s favorite fantasy roller skating musical extravaganza, Xanadu, just so we can talk about its two minutes of Don Bluth animation. And we cap off the episode by exploring all of Bluth's unrealized projects, including the wild ride that is Jawbreaker!
