aka Follow That Magic Kid, Catch That Kid

Audio Note
"Before we start tonight, just a warning: the sound quality dips for a while in this episode [@12:25 to 19:15], for reasons that will later become clear. But stick with it. Everything works out in the end."


"On this episode we discuss the film The Golden Child."

Official Show NotesEdit

"It's a super-sized, super-fun, super-technical-glitch-filled CONTEST WINNER SELECTION EPISODE! Tom Horstmann requested that we watch the 1986's The Golden Child, AKA "Don't worry about rewriting the screenplay; Eddie Murphy can improvise any action movie into a comedy!" Meanwhile Stuart uncovers the racist motives of the BK Kids Club, Elliott takes down beloved dead comedian Bill Hicks, and Dan advocates the Morvern style of menswear."

­This film is a running joke on the popular podcast The Flop House. The film was the source of a year-long controversy, dubbed by fans as 'Ding-Dong Gate,' centered on co-host Stewart Wellington's insistence that Giorgio rips off his own genitals. The debate was seemingly put to rest when actor Johnathon Fuller, who plays the titular castle freak, wrote in to the show to confirm that no, Giorgio did not rip off his own ding-dong. Regardless, the film is referenced nearly every episode of the podcast, alongside two other Wellington favorites, Head of the Family and The Invisible Maniac.
