Flopcast 293: A Very Mayor Christmas

Our goofy holiday festivities continue with a special visit from the Mayor of Chickentown! And the Mayor is here to present a Top 4 ½ List of Mayors! Specifically, all those wacky mayors from our favorite holiday cartoons! You may recall the mayor from 'Twas the Night Before Christmas (who freaked out over Mr. Trundle's broken clock) and the mayor from The Year Without a Santa Claus (who had to deal with those pesky Miser Brothers). But we cover some lesser known mayors too... including an evil mayor voiced by Charles Nelson Reilly! Yes, that really happened, and it was wonderful. Also: The Regrettes, Tracy Bonham, Robin Hood: Men in Tights, the ESO Book Club, a Christmas Crustacean edition of What's in the Bag, and yes, evil gorillas. It's everything you need for a perfect holiday season. Enjoy.

Show Notes

Robin Hood: Men in Tights caught Kornflake's attention in 1993. Here a young Dave Chappelle is seen with star Cary Elwes:

Kevin participated in the latest ESO Book Club focusing on Ken Grimwood's Replay.

The Regrettes wish you a Merry Christmas!
