Each and every week, Joey, Nathan and Kelly revisit an episode of Animaniacs in the order in which they first premiered. They discuss their favorite jokes, gags, and discuss all the cultural references they can find in "Wakko's 2-Note Song," "Panama Canal," "Hello Nurse," "The Ballad of Magellan," "The Return of the Great Wakkorotti," and "The Big Wrap Party Tonight."

Wakko's 2-Note Song/Panama Canal/Hello Nurse/The Ballad of Magellan/The Return of the Great Wakkorotti/The Big Wrap Party Tonight

Wakko's 2-Note Song

Dr. Scratchansniff is taking the Warners for a car ride, as Wakko begins playing the same two notes on his accordion.  At first Dr. Scratchansniff hates the noise, but by the end he loves the music! There’s plenty for the hosts to talk about in this segment, and the tune is quite catchy.

Panama Canal

It’s an educational song from Yakko all about the Panama Canal.  As a teacher, Joey is able to help decide if this is classroom appropriate, while Kelly and Nathan discuss what they have learned.

Hello Nurse

Wakko takes the lead in this song praising Hello Nurse for things other than her beauty.  In this song we found out the Hello Nurse is actually a genius, with several PhDs and other flattering attributes. The hosts discuss their favorite moments as well as the similarities to Roger Rabbit!

The Ballad of Magellan

Another classic educational song, where the Warners teach us all about the Explorer Magellan.  The hosts discuss their favorite moments, and everything they know about the real Magellan

The Return of the Great Wakkorotti

The Great Wakkorotti is back but is unable to burp, after losing his voice. Luckily he has a little trick up his sleeve. Music never smelled so sweet in this rendetion of a classic nutcracker song. Joey, Nathan, and Kelly discuss the segment and how it compares to the other Wakkorottis we’ve seen.

The Big Wrap Party Tonight

The perfect song to close out the season.  This song almost certainly has the most cameos of any Animaniacs song, with nearly every Animaniacs character as well as a few Looney Tunes and Tiny Toons Characters. Joey tries to name all the celebrities and Kelly gets excited about one in particular.

Our Final Space Cartoon, We Promise

After discussing the bumper segments which feature send ups to "2001: A Space Odyssey," the hosts discuss "Our Last Space Cartoon, We Promise" which features the Warners going up against the AL 5000.

Valuable Lesson

The Warners are being pursued by a very angry Attila the Hun before they are snatched up by the network censors who try to show them why Animaniacs shouldn't be so violent! Attila however comes in at the last moment and helps the Warners out. The hosts discuss their favorite moments and gags in this funny cartoon.
