Toon Tunes: A Rigby Mix

curated by Jeremy Sroka

If you were to ask me what my favourite cartoon show is (I suppose, in a roundabout way, by you reading this post you kinda have asked me) I would probably go “ooooohhhhhhh!”. And if you didn’t join in, I would then (and only then) explain that I was doing an impression of the best catchphrase from the modern era’s best toon, REGULAR SHOW. If you haven’t seen it yet, I suggest you go fix that (I think some episodes are still on Netflix).

Now, even though I feel like I relate more to Mordecai, Rigby is a funner character to make a mix for (although, I’m pretty sure Mordecai would be pretty stoked to have this mix popped into the golf cart stereo). If you’d like a little primer on what kind of cat Rigby is (racoons are cats, right?), this video will give any of the uninitiated a pretty good idea

If you’d like a more in depth background on Rigby before listening to this mix, someone else has gone waaaay deeper on the topic than I could/would ever attempt, so I won’t. I’ll just add that my favourite moment on this mix is probably the heavy metal cover of the Double Dragon theme song. I wasn’t specifically looking for that, but goddamn if it isn’t absolutely perfect for this. Also, I ended up not being able to get 'Summertime Loving, Loving in the Summer (Time)’ to fit in anywhere on the mix, so go listen to that at your own peril if yr interested.
