Pancakes are best in mountains.

Inspired by this post.

Pancake Mountain is a children’s television show based in Washington D.C. Created by filmmaker Scott Stuckey, it is notable for featuring many indie rock bands, such as Ted Leo And The Pharmacists, X, The Flaming Lips, Weird War, Fiery Furnaces, Metric, and Arcade Fire. The show is hosted by a goat puppet named Rufus Leaking, the superhero Captain Perfect and his slightly more sensible foil Garnett who serve as interviewers and dance-party impressarios. Interviews have included George Clinton, Juliette Lewis, and Chuck Leavell among others. – Wikipedia Entry
