Each and every week, your hosts revisit an episode of the series in the order in which they first premiered. They discuss their favorite jokes, gags, and discuss all the cultural references they can find! Today's episode features a discussion of "We're No Pigeons," "Whistle Stop Mindy," and more filler segments!

Mime Time

This episode has a lot of mime time segments. The hosts break down each one and discuss their favorite one.

 "We're No Pigeons"

The Goodfeathers try to convince a young owl that they're not pigeons. Its a plot that's similar to Foghorn Leghorn cartoons of the past. The hosts discuss some of their favorite moments, including a very gross skunk scene.

"Whistle Stop Mindy"

Mindy jumps on a train and Buttons chases after her to make sure she doesn't get dirty. It's a typical Mindy and Buttons cartoon, but the music is styled to the 1940's and it sounds really good!

"Katie Ka-Boom: The Broken Date,"

Katie Ka-Boom has another blow up after her boyfriend is a minute late. It's not the best Katie Ka-Boom segment, but the hosts try to say positive things about it.

BONUS: Last Jedi Discussion

If you're interested in hearing what Joey, Nathan, and Kelly have to say about Star Wars: The Last Jedi, then stay tuned after the credits for a quick, spoiler filled discussion!

Join your hosts Joey, Nathan and Kelly in the "Animanicast!" A podcast dedicated to the classic 90's cartoon show Animaniacs! Today's episode features the Goodfeathers visiting Pesto's mom in "Miami Mama-Mia" and a musical parody of "Fiddler on the Roof" entitled "Pigeon on the Roof."

Filler Segments

This episode has a lot of filler segments, but they're pretty darn good! A couple of Randy Beaman segments, a Mime Time, some Good Idea/Bad Ideas, and a Wheel of Morality are all discussed.

Miami Mama-Mia

The Goodfeathers visit Pesto's mom and are surprised to see she's getting married! Pesto disagrees with the idea so he spends the cartoon trying to give his soon-to-be step dad an "accident" but of course, Pesto is the only one that gets hurt.

The hosts discuss some of their favorite moments in this cartoon. Kelly talks about her love of the show "Sea Quest" since Bobby mentions it in the episode.

Pigeon on the Roof

The Goodfeathers perform a parody of "Fiddler on the Roof" in this cartoon. The Girlfeathers want to be "egg hatchers" so they try to convince the boys to marry them. There's a lot of singing and dancing, and in the end the Goodfeathers get engaged... or do they? There's also a leftover segment from "West Side Pigeons" put in here as well which confuses the plot a little more.

The hosts discuss their favorite moments and samples of the original "Fiddler on the Roof" are played to compare to the Goodfeathers.

Each and every week, your hosts revisit an episode of the series in the order in which they first premiered. They discuss their favorite jokes, gags, and discuss all the cultural references they can find! Today's episode features a discussion of "Take My Siblings, Please," "The Mindy 500," and "Morning Malaise"

Left Overs

This episode is the first episode of Season Two. A short season, with a lot of left over segments from season one. The hosts discuss some of the filler segments in this episode such as the final "Dot's Poetry Corner" segments and a pretty lame "Wheel of Morality."

Take My Siblings, Please

In a retelling of the "Billy Goats Gruff" the Warners need to cross a bridge with a troll under it. There's a lot of romping, a lot of organ playing, and a surprise ending that's sure to make you laugh. The hosts discuss their favorite gags and what romping means.

The Mindy 500

Mindy escapes and gets on a racetrack. Buttons chases her and ends up getting very tired! Get it? TIRED?

Morning Malaise

The Warners put radio host Howie Turn in his place after he makes fun of his listeners. The hosts discuss their limited exposure to Howard Stern in the 90's and what they liked about this cartoon.
