Episode 144: My Father’s Dragon

For the second episode in a row, we review content inspired by a children’s book from the 1940s. Come to hear us talk about how beautiful Netflix’s My Father’s Dragon is; stay to hear Deborah dunk on the Despicable Me franchise and Katie wonder what the appropriate term is for a group of tigers. We take issue with extreme poverty as a plot device in children’s programming and delve once more into the “animation for adults” vs “animation for kids” debate.

In Screen Time in the News, we wonder what it means that Disney’s latest live action remake – Hercules – is being made to appeal to TikTok users.
