It’s no secret that we are huge supporters of the Droids animated series but with it recently coming on Disney +, our love has gone into hyperspace! Join us this week as we examine the vastly underrated Droids series, it’s wild history and the show’s rich legacy that continues to this day. How did the show begin, what about that bopping theme music, why is Ben Burtt actually Mungo Baobab AND what does Tony Danza have to do with it all?!? All that and much more in this episode where we are in trouble again!
So, step softly into the danger zone and celebrate the love with BLAST POINTS!
We all love R2, 3PO and R5-D4 but what about those forgotten droid heroes CZ-3, R1-G4 or LIN-V8K? Join us this week for the illustrious Mr & Ms Robotica Pageant!

Because you demanded it, Jason and Gabe are back with another entry in their continuing mission to dissect the fascinating and bizarre Droids animated series!! This time they are watching the Ben Burtt edited epic known as The Pirates and The Prince. 3-PO and R2 meet a new master who looks like he’s from a Broadway production of The Warriors, a giant prince alien guy with a magic staff thing, and a space pirate who calls himself KYBO REN! No Mungo Baobab this time, but you can’t always have it all.
So watch along or just listen along & celebrate the love with BLAST POINTS!!
A not so long time ago, Jason & Gabe had the great idea of watching the Ben Burtt penned Droids animated series primetime special, The Great Heep. Having loved it and talked about Master Mungo Baobab in just about every Blast Points episode afterwards, they decided that it would be awesome to go ahead here and do a full commentary for the entire Baobab arc of four Droids animated episodes. Almost ninety minutes later, they are wondering if they made the right decision. Join them this week as they struggle to know what’s going on, figure out just who is talking, how this all makes any sense, do bug man voices and struggle to not drift into the forever sleep. It’s the Treasure of the Hidden Planet and it’s definitely one of Star Wars’ strangest moments ever.
So ride your space horse to the Rune Sea and get Lin-D the comedy droid out & try to to celebrate the love with Blast Points!
This week Jason and Gabe are going where no other Star Wars podcast has gone before and diving head first into The Great Heep! Join them as they give some Droids cartoon history and then do the first ever live podcast commentary for the weird and wild Ben Burtt written 1986 Droids TV movie! R2 falls in love! A giant droid that eats astromechs! A cyborg Imperial admiral! The magnificent Mungo Baobob! And so much more!
Grab your favorite droid that wears sunglasses or painting of you with an octopus & celebrate the love by listening today!
