This  nineteenth episode first features the Warners going toe to toe with Death and then we learn how the Hip Hippos moved from the jungle to the city.

Meatballs or Consequences

  • Wakko is in an meatball eating contest. Unfortunately he dies when he eats one meatball too many. Yakko and Dot don't want to be separated from their brother so they follow Wakko to the underworld. They then spend the rest of the episode driving Death crazy!
  • This episode features some great jokes and salutes to filmaker Ingmar Bergman. It also features one of Kelly's favorite sayings, "How Spielbergian!"
  • As usual we make connections to other movies and franchises in our conversation. "Raiders of the Lost Ark", "The Force Awakens", "The Exorcist", "The Princess Bride", "Back to the Future" and even "Masters of the Universe" are all mentioned.

Dot's Poetry Corner

  • Next, Dot gets groovy with her first poem about Little Miss Muffet.

A Moving Experience

  • Finally, we are treated to a prequel of sorts. How did the Hip Hippos end up in the city? Gina Embryo (a parody of Joan Embery) tries in vain to keep them in the jungle.
