This week’s selection is a listener suggestion. It was 1980…A simpler time… Disco was still going, and the US was boycotting the Soviet Union’s hosting of the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow…Wait, what does that have to do with a made for TV animated film? Well as it turns out, quite a lot. Our US listeners probably have never seen this (we know we hadn’t). But together, let’s see if we missed out or if we dodged a bullet.
Highlights: Billy Crystal, Gilda Radner, Harry Shearer, Roger Allers, Bill Kroyer, Brad Bird, Steven Lisberger, Tron, The Lion King, Ferngully: The Last Rainforest, The Simpsons, Gene Wilder, Saturday Night Live, The Brave Little Toaster, Teen Wolf
