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. Today the hosts discuss and review episode 88 of Animaniacs!

The hosts of the Animanicast discuss episode 88 of Animaniacs. First the Warners chase after Ernest Hemingway, then the Hip Hippos go on "Amazing Gladiators!"

Commercial Parodies

Flavio appears in a few commercial parodies in this episode. First, a soloflex commercial parody is shown. You could look just like Flavio if you eat Choco Dots! Then we see women flock to a window to watch Flavio drink a soda. Finally we see Flavio show off his "physique." These commercials have some cute moments. The hosts discuss what they liked about them and the connections to the original commercials in the 90's.

Papers for Papa

Ernest Hemingway has given up on writing so when the Warners come to the door with more paper he tries to avoid paying for it. They chase him around the world and end up inspiring him through their adventures. This is a nice segment that has lots of literary references and even a quick reference to the movie "Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore." The hosts discuss their favorite moments and Kelly shares a connection to Young Indiana Jones.

Amazing Gladiators

The Hip Hippos go on a "Amazing Gladiators" which looks very similar to "American Gladiators." They face off against an athletic couple in a battle to the finish! Of course, Marita and Flavio are just happy to be there and don't really seem to care about winning anything. The hosts discuss their favorite moments in this amusing cartoon.

Pinky and the Ralph

Ralph and Pinky ask each other what they would like to do tonight. They go back and forth several times and can't decide. It's short and sweet but Nathan and Joey wonder if it could have gone on even longer! Perhaps that would have made it even funnier?

The hosts of the Animanicast discuss episode 87 of Animaniacs. First the Warners become secret agents, then they go on a cruise with Dr. S. and finally they all sing a song all about time.

From Burbank with Love

It’s secret agent Warners in this James Bond Spoof. Yakko, Wakko and Dot are Agents from America helping 0007 stop a criminal mastermind from stealing all the money from Fort Knox.  Of course there are antics galore as the Warners try to help. The hosts discuss their knowledge of James Bond and of Sean Connery. See if you can catch Kelly’s Indiana Jones reference that even Joey almost misses.

Anchors A-Warners

After "From Burbank with Love," Dr. Scratchansniff takes a cruise to get away from the Warners, but unfortunately they are on the boat too!  Dr. Scratchansniff gets more and more injured until he is in a body cast, but at least he ended up having a good time… that is until he receives his bill. This is a funny segment, but do the Warners go to far with their pranks this time?

When You're Traveling

Yakko sings a song about time.  It's pretty educational, but Nathan believes it holds a deeper meaning! Is this the final evidence needed that proves the Warners are time lords?  Only TIME will tell!

The hosts of the Animanicast discuss episode 86 of Animaniacs. The Warners get disingenuous, Buttons saves Mindy from zombies and Wakko can't stop hiccuping! 

A Very Very Very Very Special Show

The Warners try to win a humanitarian award by giving as many environmental and health conscious messages as they can in a cartoon. Unfortunately it doesn't work out for them and they act worse than ever! The hosts discuss their favorite moments and how nineties culture became environmentally conscious with shows like "Captain Planet" and movies like "Fern Gully."

Night of the Living Buttons

Mindy and Buttons run through a cemetary full of zombies and Buttons needs to defend Mindy from each one of them. This is a cartoon that breaks the mold of a typical Mindy and Buttons cartoon and has a ending that's really a "thriller!" The hosts discuss their favorite moments and a very obscure reference of "kiss the frog baby."

Soda Jerk

Wakko drinks a milkshake sundae too quickly and can't get rid of his hiccups! The Warners take Wakko all over the world looking for a cure until Wakko's performance anxiety takes care of the problem at a convention of physicians. The hosts discuss their own hiccup cures and how this cartoon is a similar to a previous Animaniacs cartoon.

A Discussion with Audu Paden

The hosts of the Animanicast sit down with Animaniacs director and writer Audu Paden to discuss his background in animation and memories of working on Animaniacs!

Audu Paden

Audu Paden joins us for the first time to discuss working on Animaniacs and the process of animation direction. Audu has a fascinating background growing up in Northern Nigeria as a child and then moving on to animate and storyboard for shows such as "Rugrats" and "The Simpsons" before moving on to "Animaniacs." Audu shares how a good animator "is an actor who uses the point of a pencil to create a performance" and breaks down the complexity of animation fantastically. He also shares some great stories of meeting Steven Spielberg, Mel Brooks, and even a time when he did first aid on Elmo with the supervision of Mister Rogers.

To learn more about Audu's previous work and keep up with some of the things he's working on now, make sure to follow him on twitter @AuduPaden. You can also see some examples of his work on Animaniacs and other shows by visiting AuduPaden.com.
