The Flop House Wiki

Seriously? "Delgo"? Slightly less weird than that bear movie.


"For the 50th episode of The Flop House we try a Flop House first—discussing an animated movie. In this episode: Delgo."

Official Show Notes[]

"When a podcast reaches a certain age–say 50–it may find itself susceptible to a midlife crisis. It might buy itself a shiny red convertible mixing board. It may dump one of its hosts for a hot young blonde. Or maybe it just regresses, with an animated kid's film like Delgo. Meanwhile, Elliott tries out some of his Jabberjaw molestation jokes, Dan reveals the surprising owners of the Delgo website, and Stuart is having none of it."

Movie Summary[]


Delgo, an adventurous but naive teenager, must rally his group of friends to protect their world from conflict between the Lockni and Nohrin people.


The mystical land of Jhamora is torn apart by the enmity of two races: the winged Nohrin and the terrestrial Lockni. When Lockni teen Delgo begins a forbidden friendship with Kyla, a Nohrin princess, hostility between their people increases, which sets the stage for Sedessa, an exiled ruler, to set in motion her plan for revenge and to reclaim her throne.

  • ­If Pixar movies have taught us anything, you don't need a good script to have a great animated movie. You need a bunch of explosions, killer robots, shit like that.
