Do you ever look back on the movies you watched as a kid and think, "How was THAT appropriate for my childhood?" Maybe these disturbing children's shows and movies have contributed to our childhood trauma. Or maybe we are more disturbed by them as adults than we ever noticed as kids because we were so into the action.
FTN contributors Jeff McGee, Darth Taxus, and Regina Davis join Scott to discuss these movies and shows. The group examines some scary, dark, and disturbing themes and how they might not have truly been appropriate for children.
The discussion includes Cloak & Dagger, The Goonies, The Wizard of Oz, The NeverEnding Story, the Muppet movies and more.
Jeff and Regina are co-hosts on a podcast called The Pilot Episode where they watch and review the first episode of different TV shows.
Jeff also co-hosts Star Wars Splash Page where he and Matt Moore discuss that week’s Star Wars Comics. Both podcasts can be found on Marvin Dog Media.
Regina also co-hosts Comic Book Noob with Scott Murray and Matt Moore.
Darth Taxus is currently playing country and western music with Gene Tobin around Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas.
In the second part of our Jim Henson Legacy show, Stacey Gordon (Julia from Sesame Street) joins us to discuss her journey from puppeteer and autism habilitator to autism mom and the Muppeteer who brought the first autistic character to life on Sesame Street.

Jim Henson's birthday is this week, so we're releasing two episodes to celebrate his life and legacy. It all starts today with special guest Joe Hennes of ToughPigs.com. He'll discuss his thoughts on growing up with Muppets and getting some unexpected opportunities after taking over the Tough Pigs website.
You'll also hear Austin Pendleton (The Muppet Movie), Charles Grodin (The Great Muppet Caper) and Juliana Donald (The Muppets Take Manhattan) discuss their memories of Jim and working with the Muppets.
