In today's episode, we finish with the delivery of the Candygram for Mongo. After he signs for the candy, Bart leaves with a Merrie Melogies fanfare, putting his fingers in his ears. As Mongo opens the box of candy, there is a tremendous explosion and a fade to black. This is where we dive into the TV version and show Mongo being defeated two additional times. We also mention a fourth option for defeating Mongo in the script, but was never filmed. By the end of the discussion, we move to a new scene where Hedley is soaking in a bathtub and Taggart is scrubbing his back.

Today’s guests are Dave Robinson and Ben Ford. Ben started podcasting in 2012 on the video game show, The Same Coin, while Dave started just a couple of weeks later on 80’s Picturehouse, chatting about movies and music from that wild decade. Both podcasts finished in 2017, but thanks to the 60 Minutes With podcast that began in 2014, pod-casters from both shows continue to put an eclectic mix of shows into peoples ears, covering movies, music, television, video games, interviews, reviews and more! Some may call that being a jack of all trades and master of none, whereas they prefer to look at it as being a buffet of aural entertainment where you can pick what you enjoy. Ben and Dave can be found together on the 60 Minutes With ‘ClintCast’ series of shows.
