The Ferals Podcast

Violence. Substance abuse. Cheating to win. Welcome to Australian kids television in the 90s! Join Monkey Boy, Swinny & Mike for The Ferals Podcast – an in-depth look at the Australian cult-classic children’s TV show The Ferals. Aired between ’94 and ‘95 on the Australian Broadcasting Network (ABC), the show has since fallen into obscurity – and it’s up to us to bring it back out of the mothballs, dammit! Listen in utter amazement as we breakdown the exploits of Rattus P. Rattus, Modigliana, Derrin and Mixy as they plot against their evil landlord Joe King, with the aid of their student friends Robbie and Leonard. Oh, there’s also Keith the Koala. He’s awesome. So prepare yourself for a headfirst, one-way trip into the bizarre, violent – and at times, frankly disturbing world of The Ferals!

Ah sequels, where would we be without them? Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood, Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo, Speed 2: Cruise Control... my life would have no meaning!

In this final of our two-part wrap up show, we delve into a mega-credits segment that looks at the amazing cast and crew involved in creating The Ferals, and their other notable career highlights... well, at least those we can track down via IMDB. Some true private eye-level investigations there, folks.

We also cover our best and worst episodes (thanks to the stat-master Monkey Boy), general Season 2 'awards' and overall favourite moments from the podcast itself. Oh, and Swinny totally won the fan-voted VIP award. Completely legit. What a legend.
So with that being said - from Monkey Boy, Swinny and Mike - thanks for all the laughs and goodbye!

Ferals Pie Lyrics
About six months ago
Monkey Boy had an idea for a very peculiar show
Maybe it was that nostalgia twitch
Childhood feels that caused this itch
Or maybe he just didn't have a job for a while

But when he pitched this strange idea
Mike and Swinny weren't so sincere
They wouldn't commit to more than
The first season, if that

Now we remember feeling low
By Episode 3, Couch Potatoes
But our doubts faded out
As we became true fans of the show

[Chorus:]
So bye, bye Ferals Podcast, goodbye
Drove the listeners insane with our antics at times
With Monkey Boy dragging Swinny & Mike,
Right into a show that exemplifies
Gratuitous violence and lies

[Verse 1]
And if Mike wrote the book of love
Then the very first line would be etched in stone
Shit – you wanna grab a coffee?
Still it was one effective line
Got him the girl, at least half the time
Well – maybe just the ones who spoke English

But Mike was a deeply tortured soul
QBasic gorillas torment him so
But the podcast exorcised
He's now QBasically alive again

He was a lonely flea-ridden immigrant
Wearing his awesome fake Adidas pants
But he knew it was his second chance
The day we started the show

[Chorus:]
But now we're saying bye, bye Ferals Podcast, goodbye
Drove the listeners insane with our antics at times
And good old Mike will curse till the day that he dies
Saying 'Screw that Future Luke and his plans'
'Screw that Future Luke and his plans'

[Outro]
I met a man in Officeworks
And I asked him if he needed help
But he just pointed at his headphones and shrugged
Then he went to the grocery store
To buy some tongues and seed clusters
And other various pink dollar products

That man's name was Dave Dobbins
But not the famous kiwi one
An object of obsession
Swinny's slice of heaven

And to the one listener we never bribed
Superfan Leigh, that awesome guy
He finally unsubscribed
The day the podcast died

[Chorus:]
Now we're saying, bye, bye Ferals Podcast, goodbye
Drove the listeners insane with our antics at times
These three men leave through the Doom Door, it'll cry
Screaming 'doom door sound'
'doom door sound'

[Chorus:]
Now we're saying, bye, bye Ferals Podcast, goodbye
Drove the listeners insane with our antics at times
Now Monkey Boy, Swinny & Mike
Are saying – thanks for all the laughs and goodbye

Alas, it's all over, the last _fresh_ Ferals-related recording from us; yes, we still have our best of season two as a final release. But wait, in our obvious subconscious desperation to hold on to any semblance of a show that provides us three with a scintilla of meaning in our life, we've run over time. Yes, a whopping Peter-Jackson-worthy three and a half hours of raw uncooked Ferals deconstruction goodness. We've decided to split the recording into two parts: 1) First Wrapup and 2) Ferals: First Wrapup Part II.

What you'll get in this episode: an in-depth _Charlie Rose_-esque panel interview our of #2 Superfan Leigh, our take of the Ferals Extended Universe (EU) including Feral TV and the Ferals Fantastic Funbook and close it off with some random Ferals trivia.

This is it - dear listeners. The final countdown! It's been a long, hard road, but we're finally up to the last ever episode of The Ferals - Fossil Fools.

While we still have our final wrap-up episode and Season 2 highlights package on the way, I feel it's only fitting that we step back and take a moment to bask in the glory of our accomplishment.

Over 37 hours of talking bullshit about a 90s Aussie kids puppet show.

Damn. That's a lot of bullshit.

In the finale - Episode S02E15 - all hell breaks loose. The gang open up a dodgy dinosaur park, Mixy has crap thrown at her face, Derryn gets a prick in the ass and everything is literally CRUSHED, KILLED and DESTROYED by the show's climax.

What a way to go out. Bravo! *clap.gif*

It took 29 episodes, but it's finally come down to this, dear listeners.

I'm quitting The Ferals Podcast. I know there's only one episode left to review - but I just can't take it anymore. The pressure to perform at an elite level; to put on an entertaining show, week in, week out - it's too much for me to handle. So, I'm sorry Monkey Boy & Mike - Swinny Costello is hitting the road. Going it alone. Like Jane Eyre - I've got to turn my back on something I truly love in order to continue my journey of self-discovery and Independence.

So please join me next week - where I kick off the very first episode of my new solo episodic analysis show - The Hogan's Heroes Podcast.

'I see NOTHING! I know NOTHING!' It's gonna be so awesome.

Episode S02E14 of The Ferals features Joe joining the army, Keith & Kylie declaring gang warfare, Lenny having a SNIF and Mixy being horrifically tortured by the enemy. Just like Guantanamo Bay - but with more puppets!

Back in the episode summary for S02E05 - I predicted that Lenny would be the character most likely to snap and kill everyone on the show. But now I see I was truly misguided - my imagination led astray and lulled into a false sense of security by a character whose early intentions seemed good, nice...

Innocent.

However... imagination, of course, can open any door - turn the key and let terror walk right in.

Robbie - you tricked me. And as I lie here dying - writhing in a puddle of my own blood after being bludgeoned by your electric guitar, all I can do is look up to the stars and scream your name. CURSE YOU, ROBBIE THE RIPPER!!

In Episode S02E13, Mixy is on the hunt for evidence of a homicide! Watch (or listen) in suspense as she struggles for proof that Robbie is beginning to murder her close friends in cold blood - and the Ferals are next.

Ahhh... weddings. Everybody loves weddings. Or at least the guests sculling all the free alcohol do. So with that in mind, there's no better time to talk about another relevant subject that is very important, my friends.

Laser Tag.

For far too long, the dangers of Laser Tag have been concealed to the general public. But I'm here to uncover the truth and lay this barbaric excuse for a sport out for all to see! A few weeks ago, I witnessed - first hand - the horrors and terrible repercussions of this dreadful pastime. Psychotic breakdowns, ear drum-piercing screams, fits of involuntary rave dancing, career-ending cramps - and crippling broken backs.

No sport is worth a trip to the Emergency Ward.

Laser Tag - don't do it.

Episode S02E12 features a wedding; Joe's getting hitched, Lenny is the best man and Keith is the marriage celebrant. It's a joyous and gummy-filled time for all!

As we creep closer to the end of The Ferals, it's beginning to really dawn on me...

It's almost over.

What the hell am I going to do when the show ends? How will I ever survive without my weekly fix of Rattus P. Rattus, Joe King and the crew? WON'T SOMEBODY THINK OF THE SWINNY!?!?

There's only one solution when we hit Episode 30.

Do it all again... The Ferals marathon, bitches!

In Episode S02E11, Rattus swallows a bomb and is forced by the gang to either vomit or crap it out to survive. Oh, and Derrin buries everyone alive. This, that and more - in this AFI award-winning episode!

I just came up with the most awesome idea EVER. I mean - the best possible idea one could possibly ever come up with.

...a Hollywood action-blockbuster interpretation of The Ferals - with all the animals played by actual actors - directed by Michael Bay!

Rattus would be played by Tom Cruise, naturally. Modigliana would be played by Megan Fox (because Michael Bay). Scarlett Johansson would be Mixy and the part of Derryn would be played by Kelsey Grammar. He was in Transformers once, I think.

Keith & Kylie? CGI robots. Because robots are bloody awesome.

Episode S02E10 of The Ferals details the rise of Mixymania! Mixy becomes a rapper, while Joe becomes her obsessive manager and recruits Keith and fake Kylie as her backup dancers. And Rattus? He jokes about blending rabbits.

Rattus. Rattus never changes.

6 episodes away from the end of The Ferals, and I have a sneaking suspicion we'll never get to find out the answers to these very important, plot-critical questions:

...Did Derryn ever rebuild peaceful diplomatic relations with the moon-king?

...Will Lenny ever confess to lending his 'home movie' collection to Rattus?

...Was the rock monster actually Bumblebee from Transformers?!?

...Is Joe King's middle name 'Far'?

You've got six episodes, people - time to start wrapping up those loose ends!

Episode S02E09 of The Ferals features the launch of Ferals TV, Robbie learning the sax and Lenny threatening to rub animals together to create electricity, all the while screaming "I'm going to have to science the shit out of this!"

I may have gotten part of that mixed up with Matt Damon. Oh well, still relevant. Science on, Lenny!

LEGO Classic Creative Building Box.

$40.00

Family pass to see The Wiggles perform in concert.

$150.00

Letting your kids watch a show where puppet animals are served drinks by an indentured Latino servant named Gomez?

Priceless.

In Episode S02E08, Joe wins big on the lottery. Picks up a fat wad of prime time benjamins. Gets his hands on some fresh dough. Is rolling in the moolah. Piling up stacks on stacks on stacks on stacks. IT'S ABOUT MONEY PEOPLE!!!!

We also talk about a very special cult classic named Beastmaster. Don't want to miss out on that one, folks - it's a favourite of mine.

Ever have that one character that you just can't stand?

One that annoys you with their very presence. Frustrates you in every scene they occupy. Every line they utter akin to aural diarrhoea being force-fed into your ear drums.

So with that being said, I have no qualms about breaking this news...

Fake Kylie - YOU ARE THE WEAKEST LINK. GOODBYE!

Episode S02E07 of The Ferals features the gang learning to read, Robbie becoming a meganekko, Joe failing at rudimentary literacy and Lenny improving his patented perv-cam technology. Oh, and a brilliant cameo by The Weakest Link's Cornelia Francis. That certainly came out of nowhere.

As requested by popular demand, this week's episode summary will be guest-written in Romanian by a good friend of the podcast - Google Translate!

De fapt , șurub vorbind despre episodul . Mă duc să utilizeze această oportunitate pentru a se plâng de Mike . Urăsc totul despre el - de la mărgele lui ochi Keith - cum ar fi , elegant lui bine îngrijit părul facial , până la ciolan lui Moose fantastic . Bine că nu va fi în măsură să traducă această înapoi !

...thank you Google Translate. We look forward to your insightful contributions in the future!

In Episode S02E06 of The Ferals, Lenny defies gravity with an iron, Modigliana gets a rocket up the bum and Joe attempts to get physical with everyone while wearing some very short shorts. Nothing left to the imagination here, folks.

Two thirds down, my dear listeners. Twenty. Damn. Episodes.

And you know what? I'm starting to believe that we'll never see that magical moment we're all waiting for. You know what I'm talking about - the scene where Lenny just randomly snaps and murders the rest of the cast in cold blood while they're sleeping. It's gonna happen. Just look at his eyes.

Those cold, empty - digital eyes.

Episode S02E05 of The Ferals features an a-hole robot, an a-hole little kid, Mixy kidnapping a baby and Rattus pimping out the rest of the ferals.

Oh, and Derryn in drag. He kinda looked cute in it, too.

If somebody travelled back in time and told past-me 12 months ago, that future-me would be 19 episodes deep into an in-depth podcast deconstructing The Ferals, I’m sure that past-me would simply shake his head and not believe them.

Future-me would then get totally bummed out by that, and take it upon himself to also travel back in time, but this time further - 32 years ago. Unfortunately, since the time machine (named the Temporal Transfer Field) can only send living tissue back in time, future-me (now 32 years in the past) would have to go to a nearby bar and steal clothes and a motorbike in order to travel to past-me’s mother’s house. At the same time, sensing the danger she is in, Mike is also sent back 32 years into the past to protect her, ultimately finding her in a nightclub and saving her from future-me. Together, Mike and past-me’s mother escape future-me, narrowly avoid death in a high-speed pickup truck chase and hide out in a factory. Together they destroy future-me by crushing him (me) in a hydraulic press, and celebrate by procreating in a dodgy motel room to ultimately create past-me in 9 months.

In Episode S02E04 of The Ferals, we get a continuation of Robbie & Lenny’s apartment woes, the Ferals raising money via questionable methods, an omniscient alien disco ball and one heck of a violent landlord.

"Hits From The Gum" lyrics

Strip it, fold it
Chew it up, come along
And take a hit from the gum
Put the bark down just for a second
Don't get me wrong Kyles, not a new method
Climb up, climb down
Oooh - just got a pile from the ground
I like a redgum, or a fat myrtle
Billabong shrubs are my kind of herbal
It's ripper, crack me tinny I'm in heaven
Stop smearing shit on the tree stump, Derryn!
Goes down smooth when I get a clean bit
Of the bushy crunchy evergreen shit
Sing my song, chew all night long
As I take hits from the gum

(Come on Kyles, oooh yeah) Hits from the gum
(Come on Kyles, oooh yeah) Hits from the gum
(Come on Kyles, oooh yeah) Hits from the gum
(Come on Kyles, oooh yeah)

Let's chew that pile, get that oil
And then scrape those leaves right outta that soil
Pick em, then lick em, maaaaate
Oh come on Kyles, it's ace!
In good supply, when I get hungry
Strip those leaves and get me some munchies
It's so bloody neat
When I grab a fresh pile, I munch the green
But don't get me riled up,
Steal my eucalyptus
I'm getting it pure, mate, none of your business
Gonna take my stash and hide it, just like bill
Oooh - blink and you'll miss it
Take a load off, grab a branch and bring it on
As I take hits from the gum

(Come on Kyles, oooh yeah) Hits from the gum
(Come on Kyles, oooh yeah) Hits from the gum
(Come on Kyles, oooh yeah) Hits from the gum
(Come on Kyles, oooh yeah) Hits from the gum

If watching 17 episodes of a crazy 1990s Aussie puppet show has taught me anything about life - it's this very important rule:

Health inspectors can't go out at night.

Weird, yeah? I know, tell me about it... MIND. BLOWN.

In Episode S02E02 of The Ferals, Joe reluctantly adopts Derryn as his pet, Robbie randomly learns karate, Keith struggles to get his gummies and Modigliana suggests they disguise themselves as toilets. Great plan there, Modi.

Let's kick off the second season of The Ferals Podcast with a bang, cat guts!

Special guest Mal Heap, the amazing voice and talented hands behind Modligiana and Keith, joins the show for an exclusive interview and in-depth review of the Season 2 premiere - The Dentist!

S02E01 of The Ferals features a Rocky 4 cheese eating montage, Robbie having the hots for a vision-impaired Dentist, Mixy cosplaying as Rattus and our good mate Lenny dabbling in some inventive POV mouth-cam action. Totally SFW, people. Fun for all the family.

I don't know what I'm more shocked about...

The fact that a show like The Ferals ever got made - or that a podcast dedicated to breaking it down episode by episode has now lasted an ENTIRE SEASON! So it's time to celebrate people. Break out the champagne and crackers - I'll bring the frankfurters. It's time for a Ferals Podcast end-of-season party!

In the final episode of season 1, the Ferals make a home movie about Cinderella and viciously assault Santa, a transport strike threatens Robbie and Lenny's plans – and Joe makes out with Modigliana. Gotta love that Christmas spirit!

I'm seriously disappointed in the ABC.

14 episodes in and not a single Banana in Pajamas, Play School or Johnson & Friends crossover cameo. How do they expect me to fill up my Ferals Extended Universe™ with all these missed opportunities? Oh well. There's always Rule 34...

Episode S01E14 features the princess puss of practical pranks, puppet gang warfare, Lenny in drag and Joe serving up the decapitated head of Keith Urban. What a damn shame... we'll always remember you Keith! You'll live on in our hearts! NEVAH FORGET

You ever spend Valentine's Day having an intimate candlelit dinner with your estranged Uncle Josiah?

No? Oh, okay. Never mind. Forget I asked that...

In Episode S01E13 of The Ferals, Mixy and Modigliana get aroused by romantic movies, Joe and Lenny become waiters, Derryn converts to Judaism and Rattus becomes a sexual predator. One of the above things didn't actually happen in this episode, but bugger if I remember which. Now, where's Uncle Josiah's number...

Sail away, sail away, sail away on the Orinoco Flow...

Welcome to Episode 12 of the Enya Podcast, the number one source for all your Enya podcasting needs! This episode we dive headfirst into Enya's breakthrough years with the release of her seminal record Watermark, which has since gone 4x Platinum in both the United States and the UK.

Wait... what? This isn't the Enya Podcast?!? Oh crap. Where's my notes...

The Ferals!!! Ahem. Episode S01E12 features Rattus attempting to travel to the moon to acquire a car, beetle-flavoured pizza, used tissues and Joe getting abducted by government scientists.

Join Monkey Boy, Swinny & Mike as they delve into the bizarre, violent – and at times, frankly disturbing world of Australian children's TV show, The Ferals. Not Enya.

Let's make the best of the situation

And maybe share a sheet or two

You know you set my digital heart aflame

You're my guitar vixen, I want you

 

Robbie - You got me on my knees

Robbie - I swear I got rid of those fleas

Robbie - Won't you ease my friendzoned mind?

 

I tried to give you consolation

When your Aunt Mavis let you down

She conned you out of money, and it seems so awfully strange

She looks like Ric Flair wearing drag in his younger days

 

Robbie - (Woo) You got me on my knees

Robbie - Let's partake in some reciprocal biology

Robbie - Won't you ease my friendzoned mind?

 

Robbie - You got me on my knees

Robbie - So I might just try my luck with Kylie

You know I don't mind some kangaroo sometimes

 

Kylie - You got me on my knees

Kylie - With your furry cloacal cavities

Kylie - Won't you ease my friendzoned mind?

Ladies and gentlemen. Children of all ages. The moment you've all been waiting for...

Will our hero Lenny finally find love? Will he navigate his way out of the perilous, abyssal space of the dreaded friendzone? Find out what happens in the next thrilling episode of The Ferals Podcast!

(Spoiler alert - he doesn't. He totally bombs. But we made him feel better by writing a song).

In Episode S01E11 (kinda) of The Ferals, Joe studies economics for a uni entrance exam, Derryn turns into Wikipedia and gets a receptionist, and the gang use chemical weapons on a paedophile termite. I wish I was making that up.
