With so many great animated TV shows being broadcast nowadays, it's important to remember those that came before. And what not to do when adapting them! Scott and Mark Russell take a look at one of their most hated films, that came from one of their most beloved cartoons. They talk about the adaptation process, Racebending, and why M. Night Shyamalan was probably on cactus juice when he made this movie. Subscribe: iTunes | PodBean |  RSS | Subscribe on Android Join the conversation! Follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
