Red Stewart chats with composers Andy Bean and Keith Horn

Andy Bean is an American composer and songwriter who has been working in the cartoon industry since the mid-2010s. He is known for his contributions to the shows Wander over Yonder and Puppy Dog Pals.

Keith Horn is an American composer who has been involved in the television industry since the early-2010s. He is best known for his work on the shows Jake and the Never Land Pirates and Descendants: Wicked World.

Flickering Myth had the privilege to speak with them about their current collaboration on the 2018 Muppet Babies reboot, and I in turn had the honor to conduct it:

I’ll start off by asking a dumb question: were you fans of the original Muppet Babies, and if so, did you go back and revisit the soundtrack from that show? Or did you abstain because you wanted to be completely original?

The Lion Guard: Unleash The Power DVD Review

The Lion Guard is a somewhat surprisingly good show airing on Disney Junior, and the story of Kion and his friends continues with a new DVD release The Lion Guard: Unleash the Power.

The release is the first collection of episodes available on DVD, and it’s not only a good selection because these are episodes that focus on the individual members of the Guard, but because these are some of the series’ most rewatchable efforts.

The show is not just a fun adventure for kids, but the series takes on a broad range within its episodic content, tackling some tricky issues, without actually decoding its own efforts and bogging down in overt explanation.

For example, the episode Fuli’s New Family spans a variety of issues, but chief among them is an examination of the idea that just because doing something seems objectively “right,” or, “how friends act,
