Multifarious Man Podcast 23: Scooby Doo, Where Are You! (Show Notes)

On today’s show, I am talking about my favorite animated television series and movies of all time.  There are no limitations to the eras or animation types that are being included.  So expect to hear about animation from the early days of Walt Disney’s hand drawn cartoons up to today’s CGI from Dreamworks or Pixar.  Based on the title of this episode, you can probably guess at least one of my favorites.  As usual, expect to find some classics and unexpected gems.  So sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.
