SHOW NOTES:
  • Before recording this episode, Jake had the best onion ring of his life at Big Kel’s in Council Bluffs, Iowa.
  • Daphne & Velma is a live-action movie from 2018 about the two girls from Scooby-Doo solving mysteries without the dead weight of the dog and the two boys. I think it might be a prequel too since they're in high school and it's our understanding that they are college age in other depictions.
  • Garfield Minus Garfield (Phil got the name wrong) was a series of photoshopped Garfield comics that removed Garfield from them.
  • Hanna-Barbera was behind maybe half of all American-produced cartoons in the second  half of the 20th century. A lot of the studio's work was real trash although kids had no better choices back then so they have fond memories of it. We don't know how they didn't get sued for basing their cartoons so obviously on actual people. Fred Flintstone for example was based on Jackie Gleason.
  • Vandals were a Germanic people living in late-Roman times who were characterized years later by renaissance and early-modern historians as being all about pointless destruction. Phil was wrong when he claimed that "Vandalism" was coined in Roman times, the term wasn't invented until the 1790s. 
  • Hobo graffiti are glyphs that help hobos get by in the world.
  • Here’s the more-respectable anarchy symbol that Jake saw in Spain.
  • Here's the anti-graffiti wall from Demolition Man.
  • Here’s Nic Cage's friend's son writing “FART” on the wall in Raising Arizona.
