Do you have what it takes to RUN and JUMP and BOUNCE, DO THE THING and SCORE the MOST POINTS before the time runs out?!  This episode we put on our red, blue and purple team outfits (with matching safety equipment, of course) and bungee our way through GUTS!  This high adrenaline, high octane sports game show raced middle schoolers through obstacles for a chance to win a fake piece of glowing mountain rock!  For episode 17 we’ll tell you how to win and be aggressive, but don’t touch our Corn Pops!

Episode 16: Whatever It Takes To Be Your Favorite!

Do you remember good old fashioned sugar rushes with friends?  Hanging out at midnight and watching Nickelodeon while cracking into a delicious SURGE!?  Neither do we, but for the sake of science we’ve done just that.  Three times to be exact, at 54mg of caffeine per can, making an episodic total of 162mg fueling this venture (not that anyone is counting).  For our sixteenth episode we visually surf the cartoon pages of KaBLam, a high energy and weird Nickelodeon relic that pairs perfectly with late night Surge binges!  Be warned, it’s about to get silly up in here!

Episode 14: Come On, Spanky, We’ve Got Some Trouble To Get Into!

Kenan_&_Kel

Last episode your fearsome threesome took you on a jaunt down memory lane with the Nickelodeon sketch comedy classic, All That.  This time around we’re logically following up with a look at the spin-off series, Keenan and Kel!  We’ll discuss manliness and gender stereotypes-a-plenty from this ’90s buddy sitcom, and even watch Keenan and Kel(ly) get married!?  But wait, there’s more…  You’ll also learn which drink is more feminine between orange Pop and root beer, and whether or not Kindergarden Babies™ have souls.  These puzzling mysteries and more, but you’ll have to come out of the closet and join the book club!

Welcome back, campers, to Camp Anawanna!  This week we travel back in time to June 10th, 1991 for episode 4 of the first season of Salute Your Shorts!  Here we meet a ragtag group of stylish 90’s kids exploring nature, playing ping pong and binge eating egg rolls.  Everything seems great until Mikey sits on Thud Mackey’s hidden brownies and becomes a dead man walking.  With a little help from his friends (and Grammy and Pop Pop), our dear “Moosh Moosh” finds a way to take on his bully.  Meanwhile, camp counselor Ug Lee’s lofty dreams of joining the Hundred Shrub Club land him instead in an oatmeal bath.  Join your favorite threesome as we explore camp life, and toy store shopping spree dreams!

Episode 6: Better Than Bad, It’s Good!

12541650_1300x1733

Welcome back, friends! We are officially counting our episodes on two hands now, exciting stuff! This time around we gather to discuss everyone’s favorite deranged cat and dog duo, Ren and Sitmpy! Your beloved hosts, Moonbeam, Uncle Jessie and Aunt Jessi, travel back to February 23rd of 1992 for the season 1 finale entitled “Stimpy’s Invention” (not to be confused with the video game by the same name that follows in 1993). We kick in the door with our own take on “Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy,” so hope you like kazoos and ukuleles! Of course you do, what’s not to love?! Stimpy’s got some funky gadgets to share and we’re wearing our Levi’s Loose Fit jeans. So, strap on your Happy Helmet and pull out your Log from Blammo, because there’s no time for EEDIOTS!

Disclaimer: This episode of Vital Informaiton for Your Everyday Life featured the show Ren and Stimpy. Since the recording of this show some information has been released about John Kricfalusi that we find utterly reprehensible. We at V.I.P. in no way support his behavior. We also want to acknowledge the work that was done on this series by people that aren’t douchebags or abusers. So, that being said, we hope you still enjoy the show.

Episode 5: Jakeroo and Angie Too!

Hey Dude

Yee haw and welcome back pardners!  This 5th Episode of the Vital Information for Everyday Life podcast takes you down the nostalgia trail with Hey Dude!  Join us as we randomly take a gander at Season 3, Episode 12, entitled “The Bad Seed.”  We’ll meet Angie, a vicious trouble starter, and learn valuable lessons about child trafficking at the Bar None Dude Ranch.  Anything to avoid Jakeroo’s frisbee lessons, am I right?  We’ll also examine a 1990 Encyclopedia Britannica commercial from a time before smart phones and instant information, hosted by a JTT wannabe and a disembodied god voice.  Start your horse and come along, hippy-ti-yi-ya!

Episode 4: Space, What a Trip!

space-cases-Logo

Our 4th episode is out of this world, featuring the forgotten sci-fi relic Space Cases and a ’90’s commercial for Space Camp!  We start our journey with a leap back to March 2, 1996 for the pilot episode of Space Cases, Nickelodeon’s kid-friendly answer to Star Trek.  Our V.I.P. trio opens the episode with our take on the theme song and a jog down memory lane to discuss adolescent crushes and hair style life goals.  We then take a good hard look at “We Gotta Get Outta This Place!,” which introduces us to a motley crew of misfits, known as the “space cases” of Star Academy.  Led by a flat-top wearing trouble maker, the group explores an unknown ship and gets tricked into an unforeseen adventure.  There’s zany comedy, creepy phallic symbolism, and misplaced aggression – fun for the whole family!  And finally, scientists say by 2019 we’ll go to Mars…  Tune in to find out how you can prepare!spacecases

And as always, another episode selfie!
