Buckle up, because the podcast gets “white and nerdy” when Weird Al Yankovic visits the studio. Everyone knows that the Almighty Weird One is a legendary songwriter and pop culture satirist, but did you know that he’s an animation geek who has done voices on The Simpsons, Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Adventure Time, Pig Goat Banana Cricket, Teen Titans Go!, Gravity Falls, Wallykazam!, and Milo Murphy’s Law? Weird Al talks with Hector about his craft, his upcoming projects, and getting the white-glove thumbs up from none other than Michael Jackson.
Keep up with our intrepid host Hector on his own Twitter and Instagrampages. And stay tuned to NickAnimation25 for next week’s episode featuring Avatar: the Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra composer Jeremy Zuckerman and co-creator/executive producer Bryan Konietzko!
Nerdy fact #1719: “Weird Al” Yankovic wrote his parody song The Saga Begins before Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace was even released, basing it completely on spoilers leaked onto the internet. After he saw the film at a charity screening, he was shocked that he only had to make very minor changes to the lyrics of the nearly six-minute song.
