Cryptids In Black and White, works cited

In this latest venture of mine, The Superparanatural Podcast, I did some general research on podcasting, and a reliable source informed me to be careful about plagiarizing, even if done so accidentally. So I’ve decided to list and explain and and all of my allusions and references made in the actual podcast. While I’ll definitely mention certain highlights in the official description of the podcast, I don’t think that a full Works Cited page would be appropriate on that medium. So here it is, all of the things in media I referred to during the first official installment –

Appa’s Lost Days [Avatar the Last Airbender]

  • Network: CartoonNetwork
  • Season: 2
  • Episode: 16
  • Production Number: 216
  • Broadcast Date: October 13, 2006

I used the episode of Avatar the Last Airbender, Appa’s Lost Days, in an extended metaphor concerning the missing link. Appa was chained in the episode while being held captive in a circus, and the comparison seemed an easy one to make.

[The Simpsons]

A long-running, satirical animated series created by Matt Groening for the Fox Broadcasting Company. I reference a random scene I vaguely remember, and was mentioned on the Wikipedia article entitled Cultural impact of Creature from the Black Lagoon.

[Robot Chicken]

I reference two separate scenes from episodes that I could not easily locate. Robot Chicken is a stop motion, sketch comedy program created and executively produced by Adult Swim. I gained the knowledge of the scenes featuring a Gill-Man from the aformentioned article concerning the Cultural impact of Creature from the Black Lagoon.

[What’s New, Scooby-Doo]

On the actual podcast I accidetally mentioned this series as The New Scooby-Doo Adventures, however the correct name would be What’s New, Scooby-Doo. A Gill-Man can be seen in every opening credit of this Warner Bros. Animation produced sitcom, cartoon program airing on The WB saturday morning cartoon block.

[The Secret Saturdays]secretsat_logo

Just a mention of the name. The Secret Saturdays was an American CartoonNetwork program created by Jay Stephens. It is about a family, The Saturdays, that hunt for cryptids across the world. Their primary focus is preserving their environments and livelihoods.
