Pop Team Epic Episode 4( The Retro Episode)
They made a lot of references, that I totally missed, but there was some I got due to always watching old cartoons, I guess.
Heh. I started laughing. I never really watched E.T the movie at all( feel free to roast), but I still semi-understood this joke. I just never felt like watching it. My brothers started watching it, and I was only in here for 5 minutes.
They made fun of Wacky Racers( which I totally loved when I was a child). I almost died and it was great. But at the same time, how do cartoons get so popular in other countries like that?? I mean they have the Wacky Racers reboot(which I totally haven’t watched yet, and probably will not), but at the same time, that’s popular in other countries?
It’s legit a dumb question, but at the same time, some things get contained in countries. But most things don’t contain themselves anymore, thanks to the internet. If you have not watched the old school 60’s Wacky Racers, give that a try because old school Hanna-Barbera cartoons are great( Johnny Quest, Scooby Doo, The Flintstones, Yogi Bear, Josie and the Pussycats, etc). I love those cartoons.
I believe they made fun of Speed Racer and some other things. The penguins in the middle of road reminds me of Wacky Racers, but at the same time it reminds me of the Nitrome game called Avalanche, where you are penguins running away from an avalanche. At the end of avalanche, the penguin’s family is there and then they get killed by an avalanche. In this case the avalanche in the cars about to hit them and kill them.

Know what else I think they made fun of? That Tom and Jerry movie called The Fast in the Furry( made in 2005). Go watch it. The commentators in the race remind me of the ones in this episode, but except they aren’t trying to sabotage each other.
Enough about that. Then they did the retro song called ” Let’s Pop Together”, that sounded like some 70’s disco and then the background words were pretty funny.
“ What is this?”
“What are they even parodying?”
Then the retro game jokes. The dating sim and the other one( where they are making fun of something I don’t know), but I do know they are making fun of when you think you found a loophole in a retro game, but it makes you do that level over and over or make you die. Super Mario at almost the last Browser problems. My brother was trying to avoid a trap, but every time he went the other way he had to start over.
Then the little skits:
Where they seal the demon with a comfortable chair. I wish.
Then where Popuko gets a call from Mary saying that she in front of her house and she comes out with a bat with nails.
Also, do I even watch the show over?? I mean there is two parts: the normal part and the distorted voices part. I don’t really want to watch it again, though. (okay, fine. I’ll watch it over because I rewatched Make It Right 4 times already). I should just watch it over and stop being lazy, it’s only 15 minutes.
Comedy Level: 8 out of 10( just for jokes I missed or didn’t get)
