Some would say that, prior to the 2000's, "Mashups" were an imperfect art form. Case in point: the 1996 hoops drama Space Jam, in which basketball megastar/baseball notsomuch Michael Jordan teams up with the Looney Tunes gang for an interstellar basketball throwdown. This week, the Flip the Table panel immerses themselves in the Space Jam experience by suiting up and taking it to the hole in Space Jam: Michael Jordan's Cosmic Court. In this Plinko-based basketball simulator, four competing Michael Jordans race to be the first to hit the ultimate SLAM DUNK to defeat the Monstars and rescue Bugs and the gang from the horrific Monstars. Without Bill Murray around to pick up the slack, can anybody save this game? Plus: DOUBLE SHAWARMA! Don't miss it!

Well done as always. Loved the artwork.
Professor, I especially enjoyed how you said that the battle of wits was like Space Jam in that it was a mash-up that no one would want to watch...and you used two visually based contests in an audio-only media. Good times.

Flip, we missed you, though it sounds like this was a nice episode to miss as far as game play goes.

Fantastic episode! But I think Chris got ripped off. I'm pretty sure that Tex Avery is officially credited as being the creator of Bugs Bunny, although it depends on which point "the actual Bugs Bunny" first appeared.

Ben "Bugs" Hardaway and Cal Dalton created the first prototype of the rabbit that became Bugs Bunny in Tex Avery's short "A Wild Hare," considered to be Bugs' first official appearance.

Wikipedia would seem to agree...though the meta rules of the Battle of Wits are similar to that of pro wrestling... "If the ref didn't see it during the match, it never happened."

Yes, this was an episode I didn't cry (too long) about missing. Even though the MJ lives inside of me, its the real MJ - Michael Jackson. And his Chaos Dunk involves a few more wind machines, zombies and hair catching on fire.

And I'm not a fan of Plinko (even though I know its beloved), so yay me!!

The board is a pretty looking board though.

Tweety bird looked a little like a cartoon roasted chicken. Did he get dunked against THAT hard?
