SHOW NOTES

We talk at length about The Lion King vs. Kimba the White Lion on the show. Other sites like The AV Club have either done more on that, or link to articles and videos that do. Suffice to say, it is a bit ridiculous to think that a co-creator involved in Japanese animation, when Kimba was popular, had zero knowledge of it.
