[Interviewer] What was your favorite toy growing up?
00:02
Favorite toy must've been.
00:07
You know, I was a big Power Ranger guy growing up.
00:10
Let's, not growing up.
00:11
That probably stopped at like nine or 10.
00:13
Nothing wrong with the fandom that continues
00:16
until later years, but that wasn't what it was for me.
00:19
But yeah, like around seven, eight, nine,
00:20
if you walked into a nine year-old Timmy taking a bath,
00:23
there would've been Power Rangers everywhere.
00:25
[Interviewer] And what was your favorite one?
00:28
You know, every season they'd always bring in
00:29
like a new, like halfway through the season,
00:31
they'd bring in like a color
00:33
that they hadn't introduced yet.
00:35
So it's whoever that would've been that season.
00:38
[Interviewer] Did you like the Ninja Turtles?
00:40
I never really, no, I never really.
00:42
There are like some cultural cornerstones
00:44
for people my generation in the animation department
00:47
that I never really got into, like Dragon Ball Z
00:50
or Pokemon or Ninja Turtles.
00:54
I was more like, like I say, Yu-Gi-Oh!, things like that.
