It's the beginning of another contrived trilogy of episodes as we watch some crap 90s cartoons, starting with one of the worst spin-off ideas ever created - the nephew and/or illegitimate son of a womanising government-payroll killer. At school. With idiots.

"Viva viva happiness..."

There's no happiness to be found here, as Mark and Martyn put Mr Rossi on in the background and have a moan like the two bitter old men they are these days. Sorry. That's a spoonerism of Rossi. Sort of.

Heavily-edited regretful shenanigans this week as Mark and Martyn watch Tickle on the Tum, and Martyn learns the value of thinking before he speaks a little too late.

At least all the Tickle on the Tum fans will be happy though. That last part isn't true.

A space adventurer, a jungle warrior, a sorcerer and a really strong guy team up with some kids to fight a less ethnically-troublesome version of a space dictator.

Only 206 episodes in and we're finally doing Defenders of the Earth ("Defenders!"), the cartoon that made shared universes cool before anyone was even thinking about shared universes.
