This week’s episode drops on September 24, which is also the birthdate of Muppet creator Jim Henson (9/24/36 – 5/16/90) and is dedicated to his memory. Doctor Who, Star Wars, Peanuts and Muppets pretty much sum up my childhood preoccupations (with a sprinkle of “Dukes of Hazzard” and “Superfriends” for color)
The game we’re playing this week is the 1982 Atari children’s title (the last of the line) PIGS IN SPACE, based on the recurring sketch from the 1970’s iconic series THE MUPPET SHOW. And really, for one price of admission, you’re getting THREE games in one! The crew of the Swinetrek – Captain Link Hogthrob, first mate Miss Piggy, and Dr. Strangepork – are here to save the universe from ridiculousness. Lord knows somebody should.
It’s time to start the music, it’s time to light the lights. it’s time to get things started on the ol’ podcast tonight!
