Raggedy Ann & Andy: A Musical Adventure with Peter Bushman

Ain't Dey Beauts

After taking a few months off, Ain't Dey Beauts is back with the longest episode ever. The great Peter Bushman joins me to talk about legendary animator Richard Williams and his debut feature Raggedy Ann & Andy: A Musical Adventure. Over the course of this episode, Peter takes me on an adventure through his insights on Williams' career and unique, trailblazing style, and presents his Grand Raggedy Theory. I'm thrilled to finally release this episode; Peter brought his A-game to this episode, and it's exactly the sort of thing I wanted this show to be when it started. I'm biased, but this is worth the runtime. Raggedy Ann & Andy: A Musical Adventure is not commercially available, but as I reference in the episode, I have cobbled together a Google doc with YouTube links to everything we watched and talked about for this episode, including the best version of Raggedy Ann & Andy: A Musical Adventure you can find anywhere. That Google doc is here. For Top Five this week, Peter brought an amazing prompt: Top Five Movies You Haven't Seen Yet. Our charity this week is UNICEF USA. You can directly support them here. Peter's YouTube channel can be found here, and his incredible Letterboxd (including a moodboard for this show!) is here. Go listen to The Superhuman Samurai Cyber Pod! Please note that this episode was recorded in late February 2021, as were our next two, and then we will gradually begin releasing new episodes, though not on a weekly schedule. Thanks as always to Ross Kroeber for the show name, Aaron Taylor-Johnson for the show art, and to Podbean for hosting us. Follow the show on Twitter @beautspod, and check out what Jack is watching on Letterboxd. Enjoying the show? Buy Jack a coffee. Have a Beaut-iful week!

E183: Raggedy Ann's Revenge

Dude, That's F****d Up

As if we this year weren't enough, there's an evil doll on the loose? That's right, this week Erin and Nicole are talking about the rumor that the Annabelle Doll escaped from the Warren's Occult Museum. Well, not really, because that specific conversation is pretty brief (spolier: she didn't), but they DO talk about the history of the doll and whether or not her raggedy ass is really possessed.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Raggedy Ann and Andy: A Musical Adventure with Christa Carmen

This Is Why We're Like This

Horror author Christa Carmen joins us to discuss a staple of her childhood, Raggedy Ann and Andy: A Musical Adventure. Image description: Creepy AF toy twins. What did we watch and WHY???There’s no way around it: this one is just utterly horrifying.Creepy dolls: checkCreepier other toys: checkCreepiest pro-rape-culture plot: CHECKAROONEYAnd that’s not even getting into the monsters Raggedy Ann and Andy meet along the way…Christa’s summary was: Raggedy Ann and Andy have to rescue ..someone... a horse maybe? A camel? And go on an extremely trippy and downright terrifying adventure to do so, journeying into some sort of cave in the process. And there are songs. Scary songs. And maybe Raggedy Ann and Andy are real dolls first and then get transformed into cartoons. Maybe raggedy Ann has to rescue Raggedy Andy WHILE RIDING a horse slash camel.This is more or less correct, though definitely missing a ton of what makes this one utterly terrifying. Christa also revealed to us that she actually sang one of the songs for this with her sister for a talent show as a child! She’s promised us a video to prove it… We’ll update you when we see it!

EP 64 - Toy Story 4 / Raggedy Ann and Andy (1977) Reviews

T.M.I. TV shows, Movies and Everything In Between.

Didi Conn fans assemble!  TMI are forced to ugly cry this week with Toy Story 4 - a franchise seemingly dedicated to turning Dads everywhere into blubbering idiots.  After we clean ourselves up, Jim rejoices as we finally take in a viewing of a childhood fave, 1977's bizarro, forgotten animated opus Raggedy Ann and Andy.  All this toy action makes us consider - Did we ever own a toy NOT based on a movie, that actually deserved its own flick?  Hey Captain, is that a Woody in your pocket, or are you VERY happy to see me? #tmipodcast #tmi movies #tmiconfessionals #toystory4 #woody #buzz #forky #gabbygabby #raggedyannandandy #creepytwins #didiconn #erectmoustache
