Carvel Ice Cream Cakes. If you grew up on the East Coast, you remember Tom Carvel's gravely voice talking about their many ice cream offerings, but at the top of those sweet treats sit two titans: Cookie Puss, the alien from the planet Birthday who's here to brighten your day, and Fudgie the Whale - for a whale of a dad.
Mark and Hal were able to secure both cakes (with some help from our friends at Carvel) and put them both through the wringer to settle once and for all which cake is king!
They love lasagna, exiting stage left (even), and chasing mice and birds. They hate having anvils dropped on their heads and getting their whiskers plucked by their cousins. Cartoon cats have a proud, long legacy that started with a trick back way back when. But which fictional feline is the best of the litter? Mark and Hal are joined by Paul Dini, legendary writer who has even worked on a few of these kitties and helps them get to the bottom of this, once and for all.

Seinfeld. Friends. Frasier. Home Improvement. Roseanne. Murphy Brown. It's hard to argue that the 1990's didn't spawn some of the most beloved sitcoms of all time. Someone wanted to know which was the best of them all, so Mark and Hal turned to Jesse Thorn, host of "Bullseye", "Jordan, Jesse, Go!", and the new limited series "The Turnaround" to help them get to the answer. Get ready for some STRONG opinions...
