Spin and Marty

Snydely certainly had Disney on the brain during Ken PD Snydecast 212. At one point he says "what Disney needs to know..." and then corrects himself "what substitute teachers need to know..."
At another point he confuses actor Ron Silver with Disney parks performer Ron Schneider.

And then, when he goes to mention the Adult Swim show Rick and Morty...

He mentions the Disney show Spin and Marty.

FROM WIKI: Spin and Marty is a popular series of television shorts that aired as part of ABC's Mickey Mouse Club show of the mid-1950s produced by Walt Disney. There were three serials in all, set at the Triple R Ranch, a boys' western-style summer camp. The first series of 25 eleven-minute episodes, The Adventures of Spin and Marty, was filmed in 1955. Its popularity led to two sequels – The Further Adventures of Spin and Marty in 1956 and The New Adventures of Spin and Marty in 1957.
It aired as reruns on the Disney Channel until September 9, 2002.
The serials were based on the 1942 novel Marty Markham by Lawrence Edward Watkin. The producer for Disney was Bill Walsh and the screenplay was written by Jackson Gillis. The shows' success led to the Spin and Marty comic books of the late 1950s.
