The Thrilling Adventure Hour


Like "The Red Panda Adventures" "The Thrilling Adventure Hour" lovingly recreates cheesy old radio (and TV) shows, whilst admitting to the era's worser qualities. However while Red Panda focuses on being an adventure, Thrilling focuses on being a (live) comedy with multiple subshows. Not that these qualities are lacking in the other.

Each subshow has a catchy theme song and excellent vocal performances.

Their liveshows started with "Sparks Nevada, Marshal on Mars" which is a western set on future Mars, and ended with (my favourite subshow) "Beyond Belief" where a drunk couple talks sense into all manor of horror monsters.

Between these are an especially cheesy pallet cleanser consisting of some combination of over-the-top WWII USian patriotism + bad accents, time travel, and/or highly derivative or formulaic (this appears to be the joke) superheros. I had fun tooting about how intentionally bad these are!
