Paploo sails through the trees, more lucky than in control. It's scary, but he loves it.

Meta Minute

  • 19:48 podcast episode length.
  • Cold open: Ad for the Star Wars minute t-shirt, featuring our friend Chiptwick.
  • Pete previously listed the native animals of Endor during minute 50. Tony was also previously a guest when the flora and fauna of Dagobah were discussed.
  • The guys eventually did cover the first Ewok movie as a live special.
  • Wrigley was the name of Alex's pug dog (deceased) who can be heard in the background of many early episodes.
  • It is over 700 miles (about 1200 km) or a 12-hour drive from L.A. to Crescent City, CA, near where they filmed the bunker scenes. Unfortunately the area is unrecognizable due to clearcut logging. However, a local man who worked on the production took some of the fiberglass panels that the bunker was made from to use as a fence.


  • Pete: Other than the Blasé tree goat it's unimportant.
  • Alex:...they'd be making fun of you if your dog stole your car—is our car still out there? Pete: Wait, where's Wrigley?
  • Alex: I have some information about factoids. Pete: Factoid facts!
