TechnoRetro Dads: The Big Mile-High Episode with Air Hockey

by TechnoRetro Dads

JediShua teams up with Mrs. Shua and SuperFriend Tony Soehner a mile high in the sky to watch Big and play air hockey while shazbazzar takes a week-long Vacation (Bible School).  

If playing “Heart and Soul” on a big floor piano can move you into a vice president’s office, just imagine what playing on a big air hockey table could do!  Check out TechnoRetro Dads this week with JediShua, Mrs. Shua, and Tony Soehner.

The BIG Mile-High Episode with Air Hockey


No need to fret when shazbazzar isn’t around — at least not when SuperFriend Tony Soehner and the lovely and loquacious Mrs. Shua are already a mile high in the sky.  It’s a very special “mile-high” episode of TechnoRetro Dads.

In the NEWS

Galaxy’s Edge will feature Black Spire Outpost, Nien Nunb, and a handsome space pirate who can really dance (Go Hondo!  Go Hondo!).  The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is coming out on vinyl.  Antony Soehner’s Unite the Party continues the story where Gather the Party left off.  Ready Player One hits your TV on DVD, Blu-ray, and 4K in July.

Gather the quarters, crank up the air, grab a paddle, and get ready for air hockey.  JediShua, Tony, and Mrs. Shua talk about the fast-paced action of this classic two-player game.  Shua provides advice for those who want to win: “Don’t hit the puck into your own goal.” 


With Robert Loggia and Tom Hanks, this movie had to be Big.  Of course, it was Big, and as it hits the thirtieth anniversary of its release, Zoltar made sure it was covered in this episode.  Josh Baskin just wanted to be Big, but before long, he realized being a grown-up isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.  Revisit Big with a big floor piano, a big robot that turns into a building, and big stars who made Big a huge success.


Big, air hockey, Ready Player One, Star Wars
