Episode details

This episode follows a timeline of the Shrek franchise and its fans’ activities. From starting a Shrek-themed festival to making memes, fans are largely to thank for Shrek’s continued relevance in pop culture. Clone High and Bee Movie are used as examples of animated projects that use “The Shrek Formula” to maintain long-term hype, showing how Shrek fans have paved the way for fanbases to develop around other animated projects. Together, the stories of these three projects’ fanbases show how and why certain movie and TV show characters go from pop culture oddities to icons. --- Send in a voice message: Support this podcast:
