Dan & Manny put the recent Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers movie trailer to the ultimate test--THE NOSTALGIA TEST (NOW)! Dan & Manny had to call an audible when this trailer dropped, and oh man, did it drop a nostalgia 💣bomb all over their childhoods. They try to figure out why Andy Samberg & John Mulaney are voicing Chip n' Dale, is this just Roger Rabbit 2, will this movie be nothing more than a hyped-up cameo-fest, and is the Batman franchise merely a nostalgic trap we continue to fall for with each new movie.

Dan & Manny talk to Warren Davis, the creator of 1982's hit arcade game Q*bert. Warren talks about going from RPI engineering student to improviser at Chicago's Second City to developing Q*bert at Gottlieb, he takes Dan & Manny on a serious deep-dive into how Q*bert went from a simple coding exercise to an arcade smash, are schooled on some arcade game history from the 80s & 90s, and Warren talks about his contributions to Mortal Kombat, NBA Jam, & T2: Judgement Day. This is an amazingly nerdy episode!

If you want to learn even more about Warren Davis and the arcade gaming world, buy his new book Creating Q*bert and Other Classic Video Arcade Games, and get it autographed by Warren!

Dan & Manny talk about Hollywood's obsession with rebooting 80s classics by putting the news of a possible 🍻 Road House reboot starring Jake Gyllenhaal to the ultimate test--THE NOSTALGIA TEST (NOW)! Manny is on FIRE 🔥 this episode and puts Hollywood on BLAST for even trying to reboot 🍻Road House. They discuss why it's impossible to reboot any 80s movie, how MGM should cast Regé-Jean Page in the Patrick Swayze part if they really feel it's necessary to reboot 🍻Road House, & they even go as far as suggesting the entire cast of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia do the reboot themselves. Plus, Manny reflects on the heat he got from his family after trashing cranberry sauce in the Thanksgiving episode.

And much more, including:

Share your opinions on a possible Road House Reboot and who you would cast in the Patrick Swayze role & we'll read them the next time we record: thenostalgiatest@gmail.com.

Dan & Manny invite Jessica Kwazz from Second Chance Movies Podcast to put the infamous 🥊Rocky 5 to the ultimate test--THE NOSTALGIA TEST.

Dan, Manny, & Jess talk about the extreme time travel that happens from 🥊Rocky 4 to 🥊Rocky 5, those insulting "montages," they try to figure out why Paulie was in charge of the money, and is Rocky just a recovering coma patient living in Mickey's condemned gym, who never married Adrian, and is just wandering the streets of Philadephia with his buddy Paulie since the end of 🥊Rocky 1?

They try to unpack why Santa is such an a**hole to Rudolph and all the elves, is Santa the head of a weird North Pole Cult, how Elf literally stole ALL of 🦌Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer, why can't anyone pronounce Abominable or Poinsettia correctly, and did one of the kids in ⛄Frosty The Snowman almost die!?
