MONSTER PARTY TOOK THE WORDS RIGHT OUT OF YOUR FILM!
JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, take part in another round of one of their favorite movie nerd games. Can you guess who said what to whom in what film, in this especially vocal episode called… HORROR & SCI-FI MOVIE QUOTES!!!
Because our HORROR MOVIE QUOTES and SCI-FI MOVIE QUOTES episodes were such smash hits, we decided to team these two genres up for a MONSTER PARTY mash-up of quotable proportions! But just to make things magical, we’ve thrown in some fantasy quotes as well! But don't expect any of that "my precious" malarky.
The rules are the same as usual: Each of us recite a quote (or quotes) from a film, and the rest of the gang try to figure out which film it's from. It’s just that insanely simple! The tricky part is performing the quote, while attempting not to sound like James Mason.
Joining us for this quotation vacation is a return guest, a great friend, and a long time MONSTER PARTY fan. He’s an extremely talented actor, writer, filmmaker, TV host, and comedian, whose appearances on multiple incarnations of THE TONIGHT SHOW, have only made the world a better place. Please welcome back… MARK PITTA! (THE TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JOHNNY CARSON, THE TONIGHT SHOW WITH JAY LENO, MAD ABOUT YOU, 3RD ROCK FROM THE SUN, DR. KATZ: PROFESSIONAL THERAPIST, MORNINGS ON 2, TOTALLY HIDDEN VIDEO)
MONSTER PARTY HOPES YOU ENJOY THIS GAME, AND URGES YOU TO PLAY IT AT HOME. BUT DON'T LET THE WORDS GET STUCK IN YOUR THROAT!

MONSTER PARTY TOONS OUT!
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! (MTV, 6 POINT MEDIA, KLASKY CSUPO, DREAMEAST PICTURES, HOUSE OF COOL)
TH-TH-TH-THAT’S OFFENSIVE FOLKS!!!
