It’s Groundhog Day, and by and by, the eyes of the country have gone to a modest community in Western Pennsylvania.

This year, in a horrible touch of destiny suggestive of the 1993 film Groundhog Day, two Planet Cash have ended up confronting a revile. They’ll be caught in this ceaseless groundhog consistent pattern of media reporting until they can track down another February second story to tell…something that doesn’t have anything to do with one fuzzy prognosticator… something that changed the economy for eternity.
So get going campers, and remember your booties as we venture through a progression of Groundhog Days past to attempt to track down a verifiable scoop.
This show was created by Dave Blanchard and altered by Sally Rudder. Robert Rodriguez and Gilly Moon designed it and Sierra Juarez checked the truth. Planet Cash’s acting leader maker is Jess Jiang.
Music: “Barney’s Bagels,” “Don’t Peer Down,” “Keep the Bourbon Flowin’,” “Olympic Exhibition,” and “Chance on Me”
