The Unicorn and the Fox

In this episode the gang discusses the nostalgia the books bring up for movies like The Secret of NIMH, The Last Unicorn, and those made by Ralph Bakshi; “Boner” Vs. “Gooch“; the logic of realms or worlds; the caste system that subjects four-legged creature below those that stand on two-legs; our struggle to figure out who is the intended audience for this book; and last but not least, the storytelling and art of The Unicorn and the Fox.
