Each week, Joey, Nathan and Kelly revisit an episode of Animaniacs in the order in which they first premiered. Today we have an incredibly special episode with a reunion of the voice actors behind the Goodfeathers! Maurice LaMarche, John Mariano and Chick Vennera sit down with Tom Ruegger for the first time in over 20 years!

Goodfeathers Reunion

Maurice, John, Chick and Tom discuss some of the things that made the Goodfeathers cartoons so special. Learn about their influences and some little known facts about the characters, (for example, Chick Vennera voiced the Godpigeon, not Maurice LaMarche as many online sources have stated.) You'll also get to hear Pesto, Squit, Bobby, and the Godpigeon answer some questions! It's an exclusive event that you'll only hear on the Animanicast!

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 your hosts discuss an Animaniacs hip-hop musical originally released in 1995 as a read-along book based upon "A Christmas Plotz."

Preview for Next Week

Before getting into the discussion of today’s album the hosts take some time to discuss next week's episode! Last week Joey drove to Los Angeles to reunite the cast of the Goodfeathers at Tom Ruegger’s house! That's right, next week you'll get to hear Chick Vennera, John Mariano and Maurice LaMarche along with Animaniacs creator, Tom Ruegger! This was the first time they had all been together in over 20 years! It's going to be an episode you won't want to miss, so subscribe to our podcast so you don't miss it!

A Christmas Plotz Hip-Hopera Musical

Produced in part by rapper Kool Moe Dee, this is an album that was originally released on a cassette tape with a read-along book. Later, it was re-released on CD with the CD booklet taking the place of the book. The short album features the original Animaniacs cast “rapping” the storyline of “A Christmas Plotz.” The catchy songs by Randy Rogel are gone. In their place are some moody rap songs that don't always fit the Christmas spirit. The hosts discuss some of the main songs and some samples are played. Overall it's a pretty bad album. But how bad is it? Well, you'll just have to listen to find out!

What do you think? Was this album as bad as we thought or did you like what you head? Let us know by emailing us at animanicast@gmail.com.

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 and Nathan discuss another issue of the classic "Animaniacs" comic series. Will the two actually learn some things from reading this comic?

Special Announcement!

We will be interviewing voice actors Maurice LaMarche, John Mariano, Chick Venerra, and Animaniacs creator Tom Ruegger for a Goodfeathers reunion! Have a question to ask? Make sure to send it to us via email, Facebook, Twitter, or Discord ASAP!

A Comic Book is Born

Dr. Scratchansniff is interrupted by the Warners when he wants to read his favorite comic book. It turns out that the siblings have no idea what a comic book is or how it is made. Dr. S takes the trio through the whole process from the comic's inception to when it's finally published. It's a very informative and funny segment!

The Ice Cream Man Cometh

An ice cream man is overcharging kids for their ice cream outside of the Warner Bros. lot so Yakko, Wakko, and Dot decide to make things right by tormenting this small business owner. Eventually they all go into the ice cream truck which is certainly "bigger on the inside." The trio eventually get the ice cream man arrested. But did the punishment fit the crime? Joey and Nathan discuss it all in this silly story.

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 the hosts discuss "Hooray for North Hollywood" Part Two. The Warners are successful! They make their own movie but unfortunately for Thaddeus Plotz, it's not with Warner Bros. Plotz gets fired and it's up to the Warners to save him.

L.A. Dot

We are given a preview of the Warner's film and get to see the big musical number! Dot mistakes a bus with LADOT written on it as a salute to her being in Los Angeles and the cutest celebrity in Hollywood. A sample of the original draft of the song is played from Animaniacs in Concert. You can see the full video here or by going to the Animanicast YouTube page.

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.

It's New Years Eve

The Warners save Mr. Plotz from homelessness and celebrate the New Year with a fun song. Kelly and Joey discuss some of the celebrity cameos while Nathan proposes that the entire second act might be some sort of inception scenario!
