This episode will be more than double your trouble. Join us as we watch pre-pubescent kids join the most ridiculous club, where animal fights and murder solve most of Life's problems. What do cover bands, innuendo, and mad-libs have in common, other than the fact that ever teen feels like they have to catch them all? Pokemon names! JD, Willis and Bulldog go back and review Pokemon (Indigo League), bringing about some very confusing realizations as adults... including a really great cover band idea! (An album title: Chocolate Staryu)

We've left the 80's and entered the 90's with Riggs and Murtaugh, as they keep getting too old for this shit. The show starts, as always, with us waxing nostalgic over what we remember from these movies. Stick around after the break to hear your favorite triple threat hashes out the best and worst of these action-comedies starring Mel Gibson, Danny Glover, Joe Pesci, Chris Rock and Rene Russo.

#61 Animaniacs

We’re zany to the max…

Yes, the terrible 3 are a little insane but on this most glorious of episodes, we’re stacking Animaniacs! The legendary cartoon the dominated most of our listeners' childhood. This one gets crazy from the start as the guys welcome one of their favorite guests Scotty White back to the show. This one is full of surprises, JD leaves the guys at a loss when he reveals his true thoughts on their topic and just about ends HIS when he reveals another startling revelation. Scotty shows who the real king of trivia is as he lays waste to all that JD and Bulldog believed about their trivia knowledge. The professor shares why he loved the show so much as a kid and why it was his go-to cartoon.

This is another glorious episode that is anxiously waiting to pleasure your ears!        ;-)

Your favorite three stars are back, with a blast from the past. There was no warring over picking this topic, JD, The Professor, and Bulldog all thought this topic deserved a shot: M*A*S*H (Season 1)! JD once again jumps the gun and mentions a fact before the Professor gets to it, Bulldog shares the impact it made on him as an adult, and the Professor brings the facts, as is expected by now.

#57 The Legend of Zelda

Legend of Zelda box art.jpg

It's dangerous to go alone, take this…


Grab your sword as you join the terrible 3! They are reunited as The Professor returns and the guys cover… The Legend of Zelda. You can tell that The Professor missed the mic as he lets loose right out the gate with his memories of the most epic of games. JD helps the guys remember what it was like to rent games. Bulldog admits things were hard back then. Things get fuzzy when The Professor tries to explain the Zelda timeline. JD drifts away as he hunts down the answer to a question that will eventually lead to a classic JD versus the tag team of The Professor and Bulldog. This is a huge topic making this episode a tough one for some of the crew!

#56 Thundercats (Ho!)

Thundercats.png

Thunder, thunder, thundercats... HOOOO!

In this newest of episodes, the guys welcome a guest host as Scotty White from the Mopcast network steps in for The Professor. Things start off in a way you’ll just have to hear to appreciate as Bulldog AND JD are left with a loss of words out the gate. The team relives some memories of the show as they share childhood experiences and quickly realize that even though they have a guest host that won’t stop them from going off topic. They share who their favorite Thundercat is while remembering what episode was their favorite as a kid. The facts get dropped in the second half of the show as there are literally too many to share. However, that doesn't stop JD from debating a point with his wealth of Transformer knowledge. Scotty quickly jumps in to make sure JD is corrected  and for the very first time, there is an argument that JD has no part in. Right?! We’re confused too. All this and a ton more await you in this brand new episode!

#51 Dungeons and Dragons (Corrected Link)

Grab your D20 and get ready for a hysterical adventure only the HIS crew could deliver…

Dungeons and Dragons gets the How it Stacks treatment as the terrible 3 take on this most storied of games. Let's be honest, you've looked at their logo and thought… I wonder when they’ll do it. No? Okay well um, it's still a funny/entertaining episode! JD shares his thoughts on why people don't play it and explains its role to him now. The professor lets us know he will beat that ass if you get in his RPG way. Bulldog breaks down what the game compares too and why he didn't play it as a kid. The guys get a little philosophical on this one but it's only for a bit. They also debut Paw Paws Medicine Cabinet (the professors band) during the break. In a game where…

“Is kobold sex considered yiffing”

”Using a gelatinous cube as lube”

“I hope you get violated by a beholder while a mind flayer watches”

These aren't only said but used as insults you have to wonder, does it STACK? Find out on this most newest of episodes.

(Phil--- you're the man)

The best part is, you're still listening. Well maybe, we at HIS understand you may just have this set to auto download but you know what? We're grateful anyway!

For the 50th of episodes the gents are stacking... The Naked Gun trilogy!

It's a glorious walk down pun town as the terrible three stack the gag driven comedy trilogy that many have not only loved but have idolized, spoofed, and damn near worshiped. The guys all have fond memories as children of this classic but they also have some pretty cool differences about what they remember too! JD kind of blames his weird humor on this topic (as been his trend with a few of the last comedies we've covered). Professor brings the epic facts and knowledge as he earns his stripes for sure. Bulldog makes a lot of good points as he keeps the guys focused, although he does help JD stray from time to time.

If you like episodes 1-49,we confident that 50 won't be the one that makes you stop listening!

It's our newest episode ever!

#49 Super Mario Bros 3 (NES)

It's a me, Mar-- *smack*

We get it, it’s Mario. Yes, the final part of the Mario trilogy is here. Well, until we stack some later games. Mario 3 gets what it deserve as the Terrible Trio tackle one of the foundation pieces of the Mario franchise. This might be one of the few topics where guys actually remember the topic the same way when they were kids. On the second half of the show the guys dive deeper into the Mario conspiracy theory and honestly, it makes sense. JD gets prideful of Bulldog as he finally steps up. Professor bring the knowledge hard on this one as he brings up the mythical “anchors” of Mario 3. Also, Hammer brothers suit??!! A HIS episode wouldn't be complete without some type of controversy and this one starts it off right, as the guys sing the wrong theme and are oblivious to the fact all the while Bulldog tries to stop it… (you’ll hear it)

Oh, and the Stackage… Yeeeeaaaaah… :)

#48 Super Mario Bros 2 (NES)

It's a me, Mario… 2!

The second title in the prolific series; Mario Bros 2 gets the HIS treatment on this newest of episodes. The guys don’t waste anytime as they live play the game while they record the show. Be prepared for bad language early on this one! The guys go over how America can’t handle the original game and had to get a rebranded version of another game which became what we know as Mario 2 but in actuality is not what originally was supposed to be Mario 2 originally.

Confused? Don’t worry they’ll clear that up for you. In a great turn of events Bulldog has a conspiracy theory that might just be one the best Mario theories and the worst part is, they skim over it!! The professor and JD bring some facts on this one but nobody is ready for the Birdo transgender conversation… (Seriously it's a thing). Breakout your NES and play along as the Terrible Trio take on the what some might say is the hidden gem of the Mario series while others say it's a digital turd storm.

How It Stacks #47: Super Mario Bros (NES)

SMBBoxart.png

Grab some shrooms and Fireflowers!

We’re talking Super Mario Bros, not a hippie festival (though that too could be fun). Arguably one of the biggest game topics the guys have stacked. This is one everybody* remembers or has at least heard of in passing. Its music has started entire genres. Its game-play has been copied for years. The terrific three go all-in on this one. They start off, like any other classic, sharing their memories of Mario. On the second half things start to get dicey as the Video game movie debate begins. The talk about the Mario Bros movie, Resident evil, and many others. The Professor and The Bulldog let JD in on a secret they've  been keeping for 3 years!

This is an epic episode; seriously...
