“T.U.R.T.L.E. Power” was written and performed by Partners in Kryme.
MC Hammer was also featured on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles soundtrack with the song “This is What We Do”
Another great show, Peaches plus Hallie.
Elliott knew to point out that T.U.R.T.L.E. Power mistakenly identifies Raphael as the leader of the group yet none of you could point out that MC Hammer didn’t perform the song? Dan, as the supposed Leonardo (leader) of the Peaches I put most of the blame on you. Your Turtle Pass has been revoked. Turn in your Turtle Badge and your Turtle Gun…And your two Turtle Doves… and that box of Turtles. Mmmmm, I love Turtles.
Spin that wheel!
I agree with Hallie’s assessment that she’s the secret star of the show. The episodes she guests in are always my favorite.
This podcast brings me so much joy. Thank you for continually giving us great content. You were all great, but the star of the show really stole said show.
I bet this episode will be floptastical.
I’d just like to throw out that according to the Left Behind official spin-off book series for children, there absolutely are kids left behind after the rapture, some as young as like ten years old. I didn’t read very far in, but there weren’t any baby Hitlers that I remember, just children and teenagers who made the terrible, purgatory-worthy mistake of not believing in God.
I love that Hallie recommends “We Are The Best!” and says it’s good for teenage girls – beautifully evocative and relatable. I saw the movie when it came out, but didn’t listen to this podcast till today.
Two comedic goldmines left on the table:
1.) The Rapture as something distinct from the return of the Christ only became a popular notion in the past fifty years—I blame the threat of nuclear war. Most Christian sects reject the notion and even a lot of evangelicals don’t believe in it, so here we have a fringe idea that’s now pooular and gives outsiders a distorted picture of what a lot of other people believe.
2.) Because everyone who ought to go to Heaven was raptured, everyone who dies afterward—at least if they haven’t then repented, and Calvinists wouldn’t even make that distinction—goes straight into even worse punishment and pain that will never, ever, stop. What a laff-riot!
What about the plot recap song at the end of that Simpsons episode in which all those major league baseball players join the Isotopes. There’s some mention of some guy’s enormous head….
