Don’t make it weird.

Growing up in front of a television, it was hard not to admire some of the animated characters we saw on our favorite shows/movies. Something in the way these character talked, or the way they acted, or – yup – even the way they looked made us melt in a way that ‘Tommy’ or ‘Sally’ from school never would. This week Tuong La and Cartoon Crushers Angus MacDonald, Samantha Leggatt, and Meghan Murphy rank their favorite Cartoon Crushes that sparked their err..”awakening”.

On this episode of The Improv Punch Up, we have the ridiculous Ray Besharah in the PodCavern joining hosts Angus and Leslie. This week we phone in Spider-Man’s latest adventure, a landlord’s love of Laurence Fishburne turns out to be his biggest nightmare (on Elm Street), and we find out why the green smoke on The Rock smells so funny.

Last year we ranked some dogs, so it only seemed right to finally put together a list of it’s fur-midable foe – the cat! Join Tuong La and cat lover paw-destrians Leslie Cserepy, Angus MacDonald, and Samantha Leggatt as we rank a purr-fect Top 5 List of the best Fictional Cats!

Join us as hosts Tuong and Angus enter the ring to punch up some scenes with the magnificent Meghan “Murph” Murphy (Embassy Q) This week Big Lez pushes his son to make a volcanic decision, Ja Rule brings people together with grocery store street racing, and Ivan Ooze Fights for equal rights.

It’s getting hot in herre…

Do you feel that? Sun is out, Ray-Bans are on, and summer is in full swing! What better way to groove out to the nicest time of the year than to listen to some tunes while you’re hanging out the cottage, cruising down the highway with your windows down, or laying down in your 10ft sandcastle on a beach. Join Tuong La and Saucy Summertime Lovers Adam Jasim, Ryan Hueglin, and Laura Gordon as they rank the Top 5 best summer songs of ALL TIME!

What’s your favorite summertime jams? Let us know in the comments/ email us at ranked@podcavern.com

Ground Rules

  • songs must invoke the spirit of summer rather than a multi-purpose song that is good at all times of the year
  • nostalgia can be a factor
  • has good vibes and makes you happy/content (ie relaxing, reminds of you of the beach, water)
  • we are talking about ALL TIME songs
  • doesn’t actually have to have the word “summer” in the song
