Episode 231 - The Emperor's New Groove *Listener's Choice*

One of the wackiest Disney animated films of all time, 'The Emperor's New Groove' embodies many tropes.  It is a buddy comedy, an unlikely friendship story and a tale of comeuppance.  This 2000 film contains some of the most cynical and downright screwball humor of any film in the Disney canon.  David Spade stars at Emperor Kuzco, ruler of a pseudo-Incan land who finds himself turned into a llama and expelled from his palace by the conniving spell-caster, Yzma.  Llama Kuzco hooks up with a shepherd named Pacha and together they try restore the Emperor to his rightful place.  Calvin, a new guest, joins Andrew and Phil for this episode, and the three discuss the troubled history behind the making of this film, as well as the joyous finished product.
