When Chip Hazard and the Commando Elite activate their AI circuits and enter the magical nightmare world of Toy Story, it quickly becomes clear that Andy's house isn't big enough for both sets of dolls action figures. With the family away on vacation, Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and the rest of Andy's toys are forced to defend themselves against the assault of the besieging Small Soldiers. Will their strategy, physical prowess, and tendency toward accepting the inevitability of death and despair lead them to victory? Or will Chip, Brick, and the rest of the Elite do to their opponents what they once completely failed to do to the Gorgonites?
Sam Gasch of the Ideal Remake podcast enters the Smash Fiction arena for the first time, MeganBob insists that toys can run at supersonic speed, Claire comes up with a cohesive theory for the integration of these two movies into the same fictional universe, and as always, Toy Story breaks everybody's brain until they don't really want to live anymore. Enjoy!
Join us in the lab this week as, once again, Claire guides three Smash Fiction hosts through the collaborative storytelling game called Collaboratory!
This time around, we put together a most unusual heist crew consisting of characters from comics, video games, and Shakespeare, and send them into a dungeon in search of treasure and glory. Can our heroes survive monsters, death traps, and sudden but inevitable betrayal? Will any of our characters find love in this hopeless place? And just how many Sean Beans are too many Sean Beans?
Amidst the increasingly chaotic backdrop of the multiversal Astro-Kerfuffle, two unthinkably powerful entities become aware of each other... and recognize each other as threats. The genetically-engineered psychic Pokémon powerhouse called Mewtwo makes his way to Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Sith, and neither is going to leave until the other lies broken and defeated.
Can Vader pull out a win despite the fact that he can neither fly nor control the weather? Can Mewtwo survive Vader's lightsaber prowess? Will Dan and guest advocate Neal Butler be able to coordinate their themed outfits? Can Claire's knowledge of filing cabinets help to drive her point home? Will Kit be able to focus on the match without thinking about how overwhelmingly adorable Mew is?
And if you're disappointed that this episode only includes two supervillains, just wait for judge Meganbob to drop the Lightning Round...
The League has fought their way through armies of Koopas and robots, but they've finally reached Mushroom Castle. Their fight isn't done yet, though, as the King of the Koopas himself quickly makes his presence known... and he's very unhappy with our heroes. Can the League survive this encounter as their fight with Bowser quickly escalates to earth-shaking levels?
Dante decides to expand his culinary tastes; Stitch goes full John Wick; Vivian gets her flirt on; Nico creates a monster; and Luna really believes that Bowser's coming around, you guys.
