We've left the 80's and entered the 90's with Riggs and Murtaugh, as they keep getting too old for this shit. The show starts, as always, with us waxing nostalgic over what we remember from these movies. Stick around after the break to hear your favorite triple threat hashes out the best and worst of these action-comedies starring Mel Gibson, Danny Glover, Joe Pesci, Chris Rock and Rene Russo.

#61 Animaniacs

We’re zany to the max…
Yes, the terrible 3 are a little insane but on this most glorious of episodes, we’re stacking Animaniacs! The legendary cartoon the dominated most of our listeners' childhood. This one gets crazy from the start as the guys welcome one of their favorite guests Scotty White back to the show. This one is full of surprises, JD leaves the guys at a loss when he reveals his true thoughts on their topic and just about ends HIS when he reveals another startling revelation. Scotty shows who the real king of trivia is as he lays waste to all that JD and Bulldog believed about their trivia knowledge. The professor shares why he loved the show so much as a kid and why it was his go-to cartoon.
This is another glorious episode that is anxiously waiting to pleasure your ears! ;-)

#60 M*A*S*H (Season 1)

Your favorite three stars are back, with a blast from the past. There was no warring over picking this topic, JD, The Professor, and Bulldog all thought this topic deserved a shot: M*A*S*H (Season 1)! JD once again jumps the gun and mentions a fact before the Professor gets to it, Bulldog shares the impact it made on him as an adult, and the Professor brings the facts, as is expected by now. Hold on to your sutures: you’re in for one hell of a treatment!

It’s time to jump out of that barrel we’ve been hiding in; your favorite trio is stacking another Shigeru Miyamoto classic: Donkey Kong Country!
JD is up against Willis and Bulldog in a battle of wits when arguing about DK’s size. Willis starts us off with a mouth-full of language while playing the game live, and Bulldog has a theory about the missing Kong in the lineage from the arcade Kong and Donkey Kong (who is supposedly Arcade Kong’s grandson). Join us as hilarity ensues!

#57 The Legend of Zelda

It's dangerous to go alone, take this…

Grab your sword as you join the terrible 3! They are reunited as The Professor returns and the guys cover… The Legend of Zelda. You can tell that The Professor missed the mic as he lets loose right out the gate with his memories of the most epic of games. JD helps the guys remember what it was like to rent games. Bulldog admits things were hard back then. Things get fuzzy when The Professor tries to explain the Zelda timeline. JD drifts away as he hunts down the answer to a question that will eventually lead to a classic JD versus the tag team of The Professor and Bulldog. This is a huge topic making this episode a tough one for some of the crew!

"Hey football head!!"
The notorious How it Stacks three take on another Nicktoons juggernaut: Hey Arnold!
The story of a young super kid who can fix ANY problem. This one was another unique episode for the guys as this is a topic that they weren't really into as kids. Whoa! Before you go thinking you whats going to happen stackage wise remember the guys have proven that if its "stacks" it will win them over (Bill and Ted did this with JD for instance) . With that said the guys get back to their roots a little on this one with the return of VS as the guys put Doug up against Hey Arnold and company. Willis brings the knowledge (such is the tradition) and we debut a brand new segment that is full of some good laughs. This is one more classic H.I.S. episode for you to sneakily play while you're at work.
Extra Special Thanks to Casey, Charlie, and Ian. We love you guys! (you know why)

How It Stacks #25: The Death of Superman & Batman: Knightfall

How It Stacks #25: The Death of Superman & Batman: Knightfall

We're right back at it again and going for the jugular of 90's comics!!
On this most glorious episode we're stacking none other than The Death of Superman and Batman: Knightfall! Possibly two of the biggest things to happen to the comic industry at the time. It's a crazy episode filled with what you have come to expect from JD, Willis, and Bulldog. JD brings the jokes early and points out that the JLA must have been on vacation when "Death of Superman" happened. Professor Willis hosts a quick Superman/Batman:Knightfall trivia game that only "true" Sup fans will succeed at (no, seriously its a ridiculous trivia game). Do two of the biggest story arcs of 90's stack?? The only way to find out (besides spending 3 months of your time reading Knightfall. It's like 600+ pages!!!) is to check out this hysterical episode of How It Stacks!!

How It Stacks #24: Brave Little Toaster and Land Before Time

Wrong intro...
BOOM! The team is stacking The Land Before Time and The Brave Little Toaster. A big part childhood for all three of your hosts. Embark on this hysterical journey as JD reveals where Sid's father ( demented kid from Toy Story) has been or rather where Sid gets his crazy ass ways. Bulldog gets a little feisty and calls out the Professor in a funny trolling session. Professor brings the facts as always but this time they are bitter sweet as he reveals a dark tale behind The Land Before Time. Don't worry, we won't judge you for not listening to this one but your toaster might!!

"We're on an express elevator to hell, going down!!"

Alien and Aliens are our attempt to redeem ourselves on the newest episode of H.I.S.! It's a hysterical episode about one of Sci-Fi's most legendary franchises. JD, Willis, and Bulldog go into the inner working of the franchise and reveal what the creators really had in mind for the viewers. JD reveals how terrified of Alien he was as a kid and remembers the terminator that lived in his living room. Professor confesses that the movie that freaked him was The Fugitive! It's another all over the place episode full of one liners like "I didn't know this movie took place in the jungle" (you'll have to listen for that to make sense. Terminator VS Predator VS Alien ??!!

Yup, you get no spoilers on this one. JD, Willis, and Bulldog go out of their way to keep this one under wraps and it just makes it even funnier. This episode was the toughest to record for the trio, it will either have you saying "Hell yeah!" or leave you scratching your head wondering WTF??!!

How It Stacks #19: Crocodile Dundee I & II

"Heh. That’s not a knife... this, is a knife!"
In this gloriously down-under episode, the How It Stacks crew sneak up on both Crocodile Dundee 1 and 2. They start off with a glorious versus battle royal, in which they pit Dundee against John McClane, then against Snake Plisken. JD shares his worship of Crocodile Dundee and acknowledges how very pimp he was and is still. Bulldog believes that Dundee missed his calling as a wrestler. Professor Willis keeps the fact bombs coming. Bulldog and Professor Willis makes some awesome points during a Terminator and Dundee debate. Finally this show gets crazy as they dive right back into the 80s and make some awesome jokes about the massive stereotypes the 80’s brought us!
You don’t want to miss this one… it goes for yonks!!

How It Stacks #18: Clue (Board Game [1986] and Movie [1985])

Sorry for the delayed post everyone, someone killed our hosting access, it took us a week to figure it out but finally the truth is revealed: It was Scarlet in the Library with the Rope!!!
That should give it away but in the case it doesn't… The How It Stacks trio is stacking Clue! Both the game and the movie. The guys and their gals (Mrs. JD and Mrs. Bulldog) got together and played clue live at the Coffee Loft (local coffee shop) and had a epic game that came down to the wire where Bulldog showed his true loyalty [just kidding Bulldog] It was full of one liners by Professor Willis and some half way decent quips by JD. Trivia wars is almost over as the Professor tries to get caught up to JD. While Bulldog needs just one more win to be tied but things get a little heated during this one as both combatants give it their all!! As for the show, it’s a unique one for the guys as they cover a topic that wasn't huge for them but is still a pop culture phenomenon. The How It Stacks crew is still full of the funnies that you have come expect. They are back and better than ever!!

How It Stacks #17: TMNT (Movies 1 and 2)

T-U-R-T-L-E POWER or Go Ninja, Go Ninja, Go!
"We've heard it both ways", and either way the guys are stacking both TMNT 1 and TMNT 2 (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, if I really had to spell that out for so you would get it… I am sorry. How’s living under that rock?) That’s right, the holidays are over and the How it Stacks trio is back and greener than ever.
It's an epic episode dedicated to two of the biggest movies yet! JD goes off when his knowledge of The Foot gets questioned and establishes his hatred for Keno (TMNT 2). Willis blows some minds with his knowledge of the films and the guys agree that Christian Bale DOES NOT need to be Casey Jones in the new re-boot. Hell even Christopher Nolan gets talked about when they start talking about the first film. Bulldog lets us know what an epic costume Krang could be. Willis brings up a geek argument that will last forever…. The Foot VS The Putties! Needless to say this one is one you don't want to miss!!

How It Stacks #16: Classic Doctor Who (1963-89)

The guys are stacking classic Doctor Who. That's right we go all the way back to the first doctor to see if one of the longest running shows ever stacks up to the test of wibbly-wobbly timey-whimey, stuff. It's an epic show as the guys discuss 50 years of The Doctor. JD admits on-air that he was a d-bag for not watching it sooner. Bulldog gets a chance to steal the spotlight on this one and bring the "who" knowledge. Willis makes an epic comparison that you'll have to hear. JD hosts this episodes trivia wars and announces that Frank Turner is totally cool with the guys using his music on the show, so needless to say...

This episode is going to be crazy.

They were challenged and they replied..
Challenged accepted, mother gushers!!!

This is a hysterical episode! When faced with the challenge of language restrictions the guys rose to the occasion on this one. JD comes to the realization he'll never be able to say Kit Cloud Kicker right. Willis delivers some awesome facts on the show and keeps things rolling with his mother gushing awesomeness. Bulldog puts things in perspective with his recent trip to an air force museum for research for the show. They talk about Jungle Book, Grand Theft Auto, and JD has a massive brain fart while talking about his debut in acting. While Willis tells us how he really feels about bars with hotels, his dislike of cartoon kids, and his thoughts on bears VS ducks.
Its another... possibly ridiculous...

This one is going to be the one you don't want to miss! Its call-back city as the guys pick each other apart with some classic jokes and throw in some new ones. JD blows some minds with his Darkwing VS Inspector Gadget theory. Willis show's off his writing skills on this weeks Trivia Wars while demonstrating his massive Looney Toons knowledge. Bulldog throws down some good punch lines on this one and puts JD in his place... once or twice. So, if you're feeling risky, even careless and want to see what this episode is all about, well then...

We're back and crazier than ever!!!

Prepare yourself for a most excellent episode as JD, Willis, and Bulldog stack all things Bill and Ted!
It's a crazy one as the guys, returning to the studio after missing an episode due to some technical issues, unleash their saved up one-liners and comedic rants! Hell even Firefly and Buffy made it into this episode as the guys go WAY off topic and talk about some their favorite stuff. JD admits he’s never seen an episode of Doctor Who while Bulldog and Willis put him in his place. Trivia Wars continue with some historical figure trivia. Willis challenges JD to stay in “Bill and Ted mode” for part of the episode and the guys pay tribute to one of their favorite comedians… George Carlin.

How It Stacks #07: Goosebumps

Listener beware: You're in for a scare!
That's right, we're talking about Goosebumps! We picked several of these über popular books to see if, after all these years, they still stack. We even watched some of the TV show to get a fair dose of all that was, and is, Goosebumps. We also have a pretty awesome VS between Goosebumps and Harry Potter. Bulldog, Willis, and JD get a little personal and share what REALLY gives them goosebumps. Willis has a Voltron moment, JD can't tell the difference between 'Hey Dude' and 'Are you afraid of the dark? ' (true story) , and Bulldog struggles with the ultimate decision...
Does it stack?

Stayed tuned after the show to hear a song from the new Anamanaguchi album and to hear Bulldog rant about his feelings on Goosebumps.

If you haven't guessed yet, bub, we’re stacking X-men (the animated series)! Things get a little crazy as Willis and Bulldog push JD to his nerd limit in this episode’s VS. JD admits he wouldn't mind giving up his dashing good looks for an epic superpower and gets deep when the themes of X-men come up. Willis lays it all out there and helps in an epic trolling session and blow some minds with his vast/epic knowledge of the show. Bulldog gets goosebumps as he confesses his feeling for the show.
