Thanks to the generous support of our patron Jibbly, this week we're taking a look at a fairly obscure entry that still persists nearly 30 years later in the form of action figures: Bucky O'Hare and the Toad Wars! Developed by G.I. Joe legend Larry Hama, Bucky entered the world in the mid-80s as the perfect pitch for a toyetic kids' cartoon of the era—but had the misfortune to debut in the early '90s, when those types of shows were on the way out. From top to bottom, Bucky O'Hare is an interesting curiosity engineered to sell merchandise, so don't be surprised if you find yourself scrambling to eBay after listening to purchase your own plastic, lime-green rabbit. Now sit back and get ready to croak some toads with this week's podcast!
