Finding an Easter special on VHS can be like an egg hunt...but boy did we find the golden (or rotten) egg!

The beloved beer gut buffoon cartoon character Baby Huey is back and this time in his first and only live action home videocassette. And it's a musical...well the second half is. A Las Vegas sleazeball duo and Nazi middle school science teacher are trying to kidnap and exploit Baby Huey (just like in the Sesame Street movie Follow That Bird). It's up to a guy in a giant duck costume to keep breaking things obliviously in order to save Easter! It's a kooky bananas off the rails holiday special that doesn't mention anything about the actual holiday at all. Happy Easter Zombie Jesus, everybody!

WARNING: This episode of the VHS Bandits Podcast is a CHOKING HAZARD - Small Parts. Not for children under 3 years.

This week we watched a film with a title just as long and just as confusing as the movie itself, Secret Adventures: Snap, How to Act like an almost Responsible-Adult. Now with a title like that, you'd probably assume it would be an educational video teaching you how to be more independent. Well, you'd be wrong because it's actually about a talking toaster speaking to a girl who loses children that she's supposed to be babysitting but instead brings them along into her acid trip transforming them into cartoon dogs. Now that's a secret adventure, enjoy!

Child World and Children's Palace were toy stores back in the 80s and 90s and, unlike Toys R Us, they went bankrupt and out of business before it was cool. This week we watched their promotional tape full of 1990  goodness and a rapping creepazoid named Robo T. in the tape group of kids produce their own TV show which is just a bunch of toy commercials because they're sellouts and have no qualms about compromising their art.

70 “Expect No Mercy”

The VHS Bandits have seen the future and it isn't real... It's Virtual, but also still real. Real enough anyway for Belly, I mean, Billy Blanks to kick some ass. It's up to him and also some other dude, and also a Sonya Blade rip off, to defeat the evil Virtual Arts Academy, the subsidiary of ITT Tech where the students master in becoming virtual (but also real) assassins! There's even a video game based on the film. So pop in the tape/floppy disk/cartridge with us and Expect No Mercy!

69 “Python”

It's a post-Y2K world where anything can happen. Most notably, a government experiment gone wrong creating a genetically enhanced "every-snake" killer python! Casper Van Dien plays a southern bell who is the leader of the Snake Patrol Unit of the U.S. Military and will stop at nothing to destroy this reptile of unusual size. Robert Englund is a snake doctor who will also stop at nothing to destroy this reptile of unusual size. Some other dude plays a chemical plant owner/extreme BMX biker who will also... you get it. Join as we watch this Ginanimal of a film, Python!

Not quite episode 69 but we just couldn't wait! This week we watched Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers. Sometimes you investigate missing person cases and sometimes those missing people turn out to be a part of an ancient chainsaw worshiping cult of prostitutes. For Jack, this is one of those times. Join us as we discuss this party hat blood bath and the kooky story behind how Topher found this tape!

67 “Invisible Dad”

"Now you see him. Now you don't!" Those 90s kids movies where the people on the cover aren't even in the movie...this is one of them. When a kid discovers a wish-granting machine, he accidentally turns his old man into...INVISIBLE DAD! Wacky adventures ensue as they try to stop a shady contractor from building a mall out of cheap lousy bricks. Invisible Dad also has an invisible smooch with his son's school teacher. Also the kid wishes a babe with some serious party hats to appear in his bedroom and says he's an alien that's going to probe her invisible butt. Grab your earbuds and a mop with your non-invisible hands! This looks like a job for Invisible Dad!

66 “The Christmas Toy”

'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the Video Basement not a creature was stirring...except The Three Wise VHS Bandits watching a Jim Henson 80's yuletide toy TV special about dolls, action figures and stuffed animals coming to life competing for the love of a young girl on Christmas morning. Living toys attempt to trek from the playroom to the Christmas tree in the living room without being caught...or else THEY DIE. It's a real touching holiday tale about jealousy, egotism and friendship that seemingly inspired Toy Story and Child's Play. Grab some candy canes and hot cocoa. Plug in the tree and pop in those earbuds. Get settled in to hear the VHS Bandits talk about THE CHRISTMAS TOY.

🎄The VHS Bandits Christmas Mix Tape, Super Dracula's Ghoul Night Christmas Special Featuring Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, and the VHS Bandit's very own full-length Christmas movie The Bestest Christmas Ever are available NOW for FREE at this link through December 31st, 2018🎅🏿:

 

This holiday season grab a cup of eggnog and toss those earphones on in front of your light-strung tree as the Bandits bring you back to Nickelodeon in 1990 with the Eureeka's Caste Christmas Special. Magellan, Eureeka, Batley and the rest are putting on a Christmas play to an audience of nobody. Magellan seeks a pre-trimmed tree out in the forest and gets lost. It's a half hour holiday adventure filled with 90s commercials for Metroid 2 on Gameboy and Corn Pops. Check it out!

* The VHS Bandits Christmas Mix Tape is available Dec. 8th-31st with a link to the entire thing in our Instagram bio. Over 8 hours of 90s Christmas nostalgia hosted by Super Dracula! *
