We’re On Our Way to Go See Mr Plotz.

The Warners have finished writing their screenplay, so they sing a song about Plotz as they take the screenplay to him. During the song almost half the cast of the Animaniacs is shown, and even features a cameo from Steven Spielberg! Unsurprisingly, this makes Kelly very happy.

You Gotta Do the Schmooze

While waiting to see Mr Plotz, the Warners teach Wakko the art of schmoozing people in Hollywood to get what you want. Wakko doesn’t quite get it, which leads to some funny lyrics and explanations.

There's Only One of You

Once in the meeting with Mr Plotz, the Warners are told it would be bad if they sang, which of course leads them to sing.  This song has nothing to do with the episode, but it's so good that the hosts love it anyway. Joey mentions that the premise is very similar to "Singin' in the Rain" where a pitch meeting turns into an unrelated song and dance number.

"Variety Speak" (2nd version)

Once Plotz kicks the Warners out of the office, they decide they need to make the movie themselves.  All they need is some money. Cue the "Variety Speak" song with new lyrics and animation. Once the song is done, the Warners find out there will be a Hollywood gala, which is bound to have people to star in the movie, or even produce it.

And that’s how the episode leaves off!  Join us next week for the exciting conclusion to "Hooray for North Hollywood."

Each 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, Joey, Nathan, and Kelly discuss episode 94 of Animaniacs which features the last time Startoons animated for the show and was also the last time Pinky and the Brain appeared on the show.

Magic Time

The Warners visit Las Vegas and see a pair of magicians who look very similar to Siegfried and Roy named Schnitzel and Floyd. These two magicians abuse their animals and make fun of the audience so the Warners step in to knock the two down a peg and end up shipping the two off to Africa so the animals in the jungle can have revenge. The hosts discuss their favorite moments in this very funny cartoon.

The Brain's Apprentice

Pinky takes on the role of Mickey Mouse in this parody of "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" from Fantasia. Instead of walking brooms however small robots run amok and reek havoc throughout the country. Unfortunately just before they help the Brain take over the world, the Brain shuts down the whole operation when he sees Pinky's mess. This cartoon is a musical treat and the hosts discuss their favorite moments in this very funny and often beautiful piece of animation.
