All Episodes

DD59 – Raya and the Last Dragon (2021)

The Dummies are journeying into new worlds with Raya and the Last Dragon – specifically, the world of Kumandra, a land made up of five warring kingdoms, each of which covet the powerful Dragon Gem. The stakes are high and the dragons are full of laughs in this land-spanning adventure, which comes with an important lesson: In a world full of Druuns, be a Sisu.

DD58 – Frozen II (2019)

You weren’t REALLY ready to let it go, were you? Journey into the unknown with the Dummies, Anna, Elsa, and the whole Arendelle squad as they venture into the Enchanted Forest and beyond to discover their family’s true history – and the secrets that only Ahtohallan knows.

DD57 – Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018)

Our favourite video game villain is back…and he’s on that vigilante shit again. Our old pals Wreck-It Ralph and Vanellope von Schweetz are about to face the ultimate test...

DD56 – Moana (2016)

Make way for one of Disney’s best original stories in decade: the future Chief herself, Moana of Motunui. The Dummies will definitely consider the coconut as they voyage along on this epic adventure across the seas to find Maui, discover the heart of Te Fiti, and perhaps even repair her family and their community along the way. Because at the end of the day, don’t we all just want someone to know who we are?

DD55 – Zootopia (2016)

Zootopia: Come for the cute, fluffy bunny and the Shakira song, stay for the lessons on the harms of stereotyping and why you should never call a bunny “cute”! This week, the Dummies are learning a thing or two from Judy Hops – that’s Officer Hops to you – and her new friend Nick Wilde as they embark on a mission through a world where animals can surprise us (and them!) at every turn.

DD54 – Big Hero 6 (2014)

The Disney Dummies are holding out for a Hiro – and may have got more than they bargained for with Big Hero 6. With a high-stakes plot and an unforgettable cast of characters (were lookin’ at you, Aunt Cass), this movie’s emotional gut punches are matched only by its final Hail Mary rocket-fist thruster punch…but we promise that it’ll leave you satisfied with your care.

DD53 – Frozen (2013)

You better believe that the Dummies are NOT going to let it go this week, as they shiver their way through the unforgettable modern classic Frozen – the movie that proved sisterly love can be just as powerful as romantic love…and that some people are worth melting for.

DD52 – Wreck-It Ralph (2012)

What if some villains were born to be heroes, some glitches were destined to be racing champions, and some handymen were fated to fall in love with first-person shooter guides? The Dummies are about to learn that in the world of video games and Wreck-It Ralph, all this – along with candy cars, penthouse parties, and chocolate lakes – is possible…as long as you don’t go turbo.

DD51 – Winnie the Pooh (2011)

In a world where just about everything feels unpredictable, it’s comforting to return to a familiar face – or more accurately, a familiar bottom half whose top is stuck, as always, in a honey pot. 2011’s Winnie the Pooh has a lot in common with its predecessors, and while it’s not quite high adventure, a missing tail and a mysterious Backson will provide enough hijinks to keep you smiling along with Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, and the rest of the gang.
