DDGD09: Valley Duckrising
If you’ve ever wondered what the duck is up with extreme rock climbers, this documentary will not help. With a strangely quackthartic mix of noble savage imagery and California Dreaming libertarianism, Valley Uprising will make you want to climb a single rock.
DDGD08: The Quack Brothers
Your intrepid hosts take a deep dive into the world of competitive Smash players and explore the winding road that took Nintendo’s goofy, group smackdown from suburban living rooms to the major leagues (of gaming). Featuring pizza grease, mental athleticism, and enough toxic masculinity that Nintendo tried to nerf the whole subculture, this nine (9!) part documentary is a fascinating peek into the musty basements whence come some of America’s most competitive übernerds.

DDGD05: Honkules and Xena The Quackle for Mount Olympus
This week, the boys take a gander at Hercules and Xena: The Animated Movie: The Battle for Mount Olympus, a greasy, rotten cash grab clone put out in the wake of Disney’s actually succesful Hercules.

Featuring animation so bad that it incidentally resembles German Expressionism and acting so half hearted that you can almost hear the thrum of a cattle prod, Hercules and Xena is also for some reason a musical. Enjoy.
