Flopcast 584: 1984 - No Others, Just Yothers

Our ten-episode trip through the 1980s continues, and we're looking at some very short-lived sitcoms from 1984. Including: The Duck Factory (starring Jim Carrey and Dippy Duck), Dreams (with John Stamos, Jami Gertz, and breakdancing), E/R (not the medical drama with George Clooney, but the medical sitcom with George Clooney), It's Your Move (with Jason Bateman and the Dregs of Humanity), and a bunch more. The world has moved on from these goofy little shows, but we're staying right here. Plus: Hefty trash bags vs. wimpy trash bags, and Happy Birthday to WandaVision actress Kathryn Hahn. It's been Kathryn's birthday all along.

Show Notes

Do you like your trash bags wimpy or Hefty?

Here's a book about the music of 1984...

...but that's not the book Kevin drew from for this week's episode. It's time for more Single Season Sitcoms of the 80s!

"Alone", made famous by Heart, was recorded earlier by Dreams and recently by Anaria!
