Monster Party


JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, ani-make-some-trouble with this in depth look at the dark side of a usually lighthearted subject. It’s an episode we indecently titled… CONTROVERSIAL CARTOONS!!!

Everyone loves a good cartoon, but since the birth of cel animation, this artform has occasionally been hit with the anvil of controversy. Many a cartoon has been labeled violent, obscene, sexist, pornographic, inappropriate, counterculture, anti-establishment, and of course, racist.

In this podcast, MONSTER PARTY examines these troublesome toons, in an attempt to objectively assess their pejorative labels. Do they deserve their negative publicity? Were they simply a product of their times? And in an age of canceling, is there a place for provocative animation?

Joining us for this merrie melody of mayhem, is an Emmy Award-winning writer/director/producer, actor, and quite the kick-ass stand up bass player! During the 90’s, he was the VP of Animation at MTV, and brought us such classics as BEAVIS & BUTT-HEAD, DARIA, AEON FLUX, THE MAXX, and THE HEAD. Please welcome… JOHN ANDREWS!
