The Damn Dirty Geeks dive deep into geek pop culture in this new episode with special guest Sultan Saeed Al Darmaki, who joins us in a fond trip back through classic Saturday morning cartoons and other genre entertainment.By far, this is the wackiest, uber-geekiest Damn Dirty Geeks podcast episode ever, thanks in part to our special guest Sultan Saeed Al Darmaki, whose own geek cred is extensive as you’ll find out when he joins in singing “deep cuts” from Saturday morning cartoon theme songs with the DDG team! Not only do we revisit classic TV animation including JOHNNY QUEST with other Hanna Barbara and Japanese anime series, this full-length episode also expands into geek discussions of PLANET OF THE APES, comedic comparisons of THE ODD COUPLE in its various forms, and the 1966 BATMAN series starring Adam West.

The Damn Dirty Geeks revisit classic Saturday morning cartoon animation in our latest episode with special guest Sultan Saeed Al Darmaki

Sultan, founder of Dark Dunes Productions, served as executive producer of the upcoming horror film HARBINGER DOWN directed by StudioADI’s Alec Gillis, director of the upcoming horror comedy KIDS VS. MONSTERS, and produced the upcoming fantasy feature film YAMASONG; MARCH OF THE HOLLOWS featuring the voices of Abigail Breslin, Nathan Fillion, Malcolm McDowell, Peter Weller and George Takei. Now, thanks to his appearance on DDG, Sultan can add to his credits a wonderful duet with our Frank Woodward singing “Suddenly” from XANADU which has to be heard to be believed.

Though we’re releasing this “Episode 005” out of chronological order in recording dates, this show marked the DDG podcast debut of our own Trish Geiger who dove right into the geek deep end with the rest of us. This delay is partly due to the massive amount of audio mixing it took to present this very cast-crowded episode (thanks for sticking with it, Justin Cruse), but the results are worth the wait! So activate your supergeek powers and join this wild ride through Saturday morning cartoons and pop culture entertainment, won’t you?

Trivia: In this episode, Jack maintained that BATMAN – THE MOVIE (1966) was originally the pilot for the hit TV series, and he was partially correct. What became the theatrical film was originally conceived to be a pilot film to help sell a television series, but film production was postponed when the series was picked up by ABC. “Hi Diddle Riddle,” the premiere episode of the series, aired on January 12, 1966. BATMAN – THE MOVIE was released between the TV series’ first and second seasons, premiering in Austin, Texas on June 30, 1966.
