The Videocade Commentaries – Ep. 001 – Battletoads

Welcome to my latest project: The Videocade Commentaries!

When a video game becomes popular, it’s not uncommon to find merchandise such as posters, comics, or even action figures based on characters from the games. But some video games get the honor of being turned into an animated series! Some of these cartoons are good, most are not so good, but they are ALL fun!

The Videocade Commentaries is a podcast series where three guys who love video games offer their own commentary on these cartoons! It’s like watching a director’s commentary on a DVD or Blu-Ray…but these guys are fans just like you!

Join RetrowareTV.com alumni “Pixel Dan” Eardley, Lance “Ito” Cortez, and Eric Lappe as they watch these cartoons with YOU!

In the inaugural episode, the guys are sitting down to watch the pilot episode of Battletoads, based on the hit videos game series! This cartoon show never made it past the pilot episode. In fact, it only aired on TV one time in 1994, and never again! Is it a hidden gem, or a complete disaster? Either way, it’s going to be a blast to watch!

So hit the pause button on your controller, grab your remote and enjoy The Videocade Commentaries!

  • Great new idea for a show, Dan! Really enjoyed your fresh impressions of something as hilariously awful as the Battletoads pilot. Can't wait for more episodes! 🙂

    (P.S.: When you watch the Mega Man cartoon, you HAVE to make sure that it's the Lion Men episode. That episode is pure gold insanity. XD)

      And great suggestion! I definitely plan to touch on as many different video game cartoons as possible. I want to start with a few of these lesser known ones like Battletoads. 😀

      Glad you enjoyed it! We've got some kinks to work out still, as is with every brand new show, but we're all very happy with how this turned out and we're excited to do more!

    You need to do Mutant League Football!!!!!! That is one of my most favorite Genesis games. Super fun game to play. Bones Jackson, Scary Ice, K.T. Slayer! Bribe the ref and kill the opposing players! I've never actually seen the cartoon. I suppose it could be found on YouTube.
