Each week, Joey, Nathan and Kelly revisit an episode of Animaniacs, Tiny Toon Adventures, Pinky and the Brain, or Freakazoid! Today its part two of their discussion with Tom Ruegger for Animaniacs' 26th Anniversary. Tom talks about episodes 16-19 with the hosts and shares his thoughts about each one.
Today's episode features a discussion of some fantastic episodes of Animaniacs. Highlights include "Chalkboard Bungle," "Hurray for Slappy," "Roll Over Beethoven," "Pavlov's Mice," and "Meatballs or Consequences."
While the episodes all feature some fantastic writing, some segments have questionable animation. The hosts talk to Tom about segments like "Chalkboard Bungle" which is a hilarious cartoon, but looks pretty bad.
The discussion of episode 20 is postponed until a future date. An episode as monumental as "Hearts of Twilight" deserves to have a deep dive. Hopefully with its writer, Paul Rugg!
Whenever Tom is on the podcast you will probably hear him sketching while talking. Today's sketch features a familiar megalomaniacal mouse you're probably familiar with.
