Each week, Joey, Nathan and Kelly revisit an episode of Animaniacs, Tiny Toon Adventures, Pinky and the Brain, or Freakazoid! Today, your hosts talk about another episode of Tiny Toon Adventures that focuses on comedy and toilets!

Henny Youngman Day

The legendary comedian Henny Youngman voices a giant chicken named "Henny Youngman" who substitute teaches for Daffy Duck. Youngman tells jokes to the students who quickly tire of his jokes. What will the hosts of the Animanicast think of this classic comedy?

Stand-Up and Deliver

Babs is going to perform her comedy at the local comedy club! Unfortunately Robin Killems opens for her and she is completely intimidated and can't compete with his act. Luckily Robin rescues Babs and her act is a success. The hosts discuss the connections Sherri Stoner and Maurice LaMarche have with comedy clubs and how this cartoon is a nice salute to Robin Williams.

The Potty Years

Plucky remembers when he was potty trained. Baby Plucky loved to flush the potty and quickly tries to flush everything he can see! This hilarious and cute story is actually based upon a real event in Tom Ruegger's life. His youngest son, Cody, loved flushing the toilet as well and ended up flooding their hotel room! A clip from episode 68a is played when the Animanicast interviewed Nathan, Luke, and Cody Ruegger about their experiences working on Animaniacs. You can listen to it here.

Lame Joke

Buster has a joke that he loves to tell. Unfortunately his friends hate it. The lame joke is personified as a lame clown who collapses and is taken to the hospital. Will Buster be able to save his lame joke and make anybody laugh?

Water Tower Rating

What will the hosts think of this episode and "The Potty Years?"

Each week, Joey, Nathan and Kelly revisit an episode of Animaniacs, Tiny Toon Adventures, Pinky and the Brain, or Freakazoid! Today Joey and Nathan talk about the comic series of Animaniacs issue 15 which features many of the second bananas in Animaniacs. First, the Warners get plastic surgery in "A Change of Face," then Rita and Runt are chased around by "Mace Ventura," the Goodfeathers try to get the Godpigeon a "Cannoli or Nothing," and finally Minerva shows everyone that she is a "Shopping Beauty." What will Nathan and Joey think about today's comic? Listen and find out!

A Change of Face

The Warners give their secret away for how they stay so young. They have plastic surgery! Unfortunately Wakko takes it too far and gets "A Change of Face" when he comes out looking like Michael Jackson!

Mace Ventura: Pet Hunter

Rita and Runt are back! But unfortunately Rita can't sing because it's a comic book. To make things worse they're being chased around by Mace Ventura who wants to kill and stuff the two for an old woman's collection!

Cannoli or Nothing

The Goodfeathers need to get the last cannoli to the Godpigeon. Unfortunately Frank Pigeonatra also wants it! The Goodfeathers have to get the cannoli without offending their favorite singer!

Shopping Beauty

Minerva is cursed. She has a credit account with 5 months, zero percent interest on her purchases. She goes throughout the mall looking for a prince to save her. Unfortunately none of the "princes" she meets are up to her liking.

What do you think?

Each week, Joey, Nathan and Kelly revisit an episode of Animaniacs, Tiny Toon Adventures, Pinky and the Brain, or Freakazoid! Today, your hosts talk about Freakazoid Episode three featuring the segments "Mo-ron," "The Sewer Rescue" and "Legends Who Lunch."

Mo-ron

Today's Freakazoid has several segments featuring an overweight alien named Mo-ron who has an important message for all mankind. Unfortunately, Mo-ron can't seem to remember his message. Mo-ron does remember his name however and  proudly recites, "I am Mo-ron!" continually instead of sharing any mysteries of the universe.

Joey and Nathan enjoyed these Mo-ron segments quite a bit however Kelly... didn't.

The Sewer Rescue

Lord Bravery goes out to pick up some groceries for his wife and mother-in-law. On the way there, he hears a man stuck in the sewer. Lord Bravery sees this as his big opportunity to rescue someone even though the man stuck would rather have Superman or the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles help out. This segment is very reminiscent to Monty Python and even features a tune written by Gilbert and Sullivan. It's no wonder that it was written by Paul Rugg.

The Big Question

Another alien lands at the White House with an important question, "What's the name of Barbie's sister?" Luckily Freakazoid is there to answer! Unfortunately, Mo-ron is there as well.

Legends Who Lunch

In this short segment, obscure, elderly super heroes get together to have lunch at a deli. The group talks all about their experiences fighting off different fog-based villains.

Finale

Mo-ron comes back one more time to let us know what the message is! There's a huge comet hurtling towards Earth! Freakazoid saves Mo-ron's life. But can Mo-ron be killed? The hosts discuss his indestructible nature and the eventual return of Mo-ron... sort of.

Episodes 1-10

Jun 9, 2019

Join your hosts Joey, Nathan and Kelly in the "Animanicast!" A podcast dedicated to Animaniacs! Today your hosts discuss the third episode of Pinky and the Brain featuring the segments, "Tokyo Grows," "That Smarts" and the song "Brainstem."

Tokyo Grows

The Brain realizes that if he and Pinky make themselves as large as the mythical creature Gollyzilla, they could then create a fake fight for all of Tokyo to see. Then the Brain could become ruler! Unfortunately the real Gollyzilla emerges from the depths and puts an end to that plan. This cartoon ends up becoming the biggest cartoon Pinky and the Brain ever starred in when even Tokyo Grows!

That Smarts

The Brain calculates that the reason they never succeed at taking over the world is because Pinky is an idiot. He straps Pinky into his latest invention and before you can say, "Narf!" Pinky is a genius! Unfortunately he's even smarter than the Brain and he's able to find all the flaws in Brain's plans. The Brain realizes that one of the two must be stupid in order for then to be successful, but who should be the dumb one?

Brain Stem

The Brain teaches the kids at home all about the parts of the Brain. Except for the "Brain Stem" which Pinky takes care of with lots of enthusiasm.

May 19, 2019

Each week, Joey, Nathan and Kelly revisit an episode of Animaniacs, Tiny Toon Adventures, Pinky and the Brain, or Freakazoid! Today, your hosts talk about another of Kelly's favorite episodes of Tiny Toon Adventures entitled "Tiny Toons Music Television."  The three talk about each segment in today's episode and then give the episode a water tower rating!

Tiny Toons Music Television

Throughout today's episode Buster and Babs introduce each segment as the resident VJs of Tiny Toons Music Television. They show us a wall of phones, we meet Julie Bruin, and we get to see the one and only Fuddonna!

Istanbul (Not Constantinople)

In the first segment of Tiny Toons Music Television, Plucky is sent on a mission to rescue a jade duck statue that looks a lot like Plucky himself. He sets out with Hamton to steal the statue back from Montana Max and his goons only to be chased back through the desert on camels. Unfortunately Plucky breaks the statue as soon as he gets his reward (or his reward gets him.)

This video is sung by the band They Might Be Giants but they weren't the first ones to sing it! The hosts discuss their favorite moments in the cartoon and in this song.

Particle Man

Plucky is Particle Man and he is in the wresting ring going up against Triangle Man, Universe Man and even the Crusher when he changes outfits from Particle Man to Person Man. Plucky tries to face off against the three foes but he doesn't stand a chance.

This second song from They Might Be Giants features some great action and animation. The hosts reflect on this cartoon and on their shared love of They Might Be Giants.

Respect

Babs is singing to Aretha Franklin's classic hit "Respect" in a library, a court room, a funeral and an operating room! The ones she bothers however get back at her so that they can be respected.

This cartoon has lots of writers and animators in the background! Plus a cameo from Batman (sorta.)

Money (That's What I Want)

Montana Max sings about money and how much he wants it. In the end though, he has nothing and Joey actually feels sorry for him. This video has lots of energy, great animation and Ralph the Guard?

Top Secret Apprentice

In this instrumental salute to "The Sorcerer's Apprentice," Bugs Bunny is working on the new computer animation wing of ACME Looniversity. While he's away, Buster jumps onto the controls but quickly falls asleep. Buster dreams of flying through space, swimming through the ocean, flying on flies and going into the past to the age of dinosaurs. Buster's imagination almost gets out of hand!

This instrumental segment of Tiny Toons Music Television features impressive animation, great action and an awkward ending that the hosts don't really like.

Part Two: What's the Holdup?

In "What's the Holdup" Slappy takes Skippy to the bank to deposit his coins. Unfortunately some raccoon robbers come into the bank too! Fortunately Slappy is there to save the day thanks to the use of her classic comedy cartoon props and gags!

Each week, Joey, Nathan and Kelly revisit an episode of Animaniacs, Tiny Toon Adventures, Pinky and the Brain, or Freakazoid! Today, your hosts skip ahead in the Tiny Toons timeline to talk about one of Kelly's favorite episodes featuring a segment with Steven Spielberg, "Phone Call from the 405"  The three talk about each segment in today's episode and then give the episode a water tower rating!

Fox Trot

Since Tiny Toons was on Fox Kids at this point, Buster and Babs are continually being chased by the the Fox censors. These interstitial segments will eventually lead to the segment "Phone Call from the 405."

My Brilliant Revenge

Hamton is trying to watch Swine Search but Plucky won't stop playing his awful bagpipe music! When Hamton ends up missing the end of the show, he rips up Plucky's bagpipes and storms away. Plucky then decides to have revenge! How will the two remain friends at the end of this cartoon?

Can't Buy Me Love

Elmyra has a new neighbor named Rhoda Queen and Elmyra couldn't be happier to have a new friend! Unfortunately, "Queenie" forces Elmyra to give her things in order to be her friend. Will Elmyra learn that friends don't have to do that, or will she steal her mother's car and drive to Utah? Find out in our discussion!

Phone Call from the 405

It's one of Kelly's favorite segments! Steven Spielberg calls Buster and Babs to tell them what they should improve in today's episode. Steven suggests new camera angles, better gags, and more shadows! This segment was actually based upon a real conversation Tom Ruegger had with Steven Spielberg. A clip from episode 63a of our show is shared so that we can hear Tom share the story once again.

An animator is having trouble coming up with a new cartoon show. He creates Buster and Babs, but as soon as they jump off the page he realizes that he must be working too hard, and leaves. It's then up to Buster and Babs to hire the actors, write the scripts, and find some villains. One villain, Montana Max, steals the scripts and decides to make the show all about him! It's up to Buster and Babs to save the day with some help from classic Looney Tunes characters like Bugs Bunny!

Each week, Joey, Nathan and Kelly revisit an episode of Animaniacs in the order in which they first premiered. Today your hosts discuss part two of Wakko's Wish! With so many songs, jokes and character cameos, there's too much for just one Animanicast episode! Make sure to listen to the discussion of the first part, and then listen to this discussion to find out our water tower rating!

Wakko's Wish Part Two

The Warners are on their way to the Wishing Star, along with the evil King Salazar and the rest of the town of Warnerstock. Unfortunately right before they reach the star, King Salazar captures them all and takes the Warners to his ice castle. The siblings drive the king crazy, escape some of their biggest fears on a mine car, and then escape a firing squad thanks to Dot's cuteness!

Wakko eventually gets to the Wishing Star and makes a wish that will help not just his sister, but all of the townspeople as well. Two hay pennies!

The hosts share some of their favorite scenes in the second part of Wakko's Wish and after they give their water tower ratings, some thoughts from listeners are shared as well! Feel free to share your own thoughts on Wakko's Wish by emailing them to animanicast@retrozap.com.

Wakko's Wish Part One

The Warners are orphans in the town of Warnerstock, a town that has been taxed to the extreme by the evil King Salazar. To make things worse, Dot needs an operation and the siblings have no money! Luckily, Wakko calls upon the Wishing Star for some help. The star lands far away from the village and so the Warners must set out to touch the Wishing Star. Before they leave however, they tell the townsfolk, and a mad rush to be the first to touch the Wishing Star ensues. Unfortunately the evil King Salazar finds out as well and seeks to eliminate the Warners before they get to the star.

There's lots of jokes, songs and character cameos to cover in this movie. So many, in fact,  that this podcast episode will only cover the first half of the movie!

Each week, Joey, Nathan and Kelly revisit an episode of Animaniacs in the order in which they first premiered. Today the creator of Animaniacs, Tom Ruegger, joins the show once again to talk about the show and its transition to the Kids WB. Tom discusses some of the memorable episodes in the later seasons of Animaniacs and talks about some of the challenges of moving the show to the Kids' WB.

Moving to the Kids' WB

Tom talks about the challenges switching from Fox Kids to Kids WB. Animaniacs went from a show that was incredibly popular and easily accessible on Fox to a network that was only accessible to those lucky enough to have the Kids WB in their area. Tom talks about his frustrations with WB executives, how Pinky and the Brain were encouraged to be more like a sitcom, and how the executives attempted to change Animaniacs. He also shares his thoughts on some selected episodes of Animaniacs' later seasons and how it all came to a close.

Special Announcement

Soon we will be discussing "Wakko's Wish" which many (including Tom Ruegger) consider to be the 100th episode of Animaniacs. What will Joey, Nathan and Kelly discuss afterwards? Listen to find out!

Each week, Joey, Nathan and Kelly revisit an episode of Animaniacs in the order in which they first premiered. Today Joey and Nathan get together once again to talk about an Animaniacs comic book! Its issue 12 features the Warners driving beatniks insane and Pinky and the Brain meeting the "Fab Four."

Special Giveaway!

The winner of our biggest contest to date is announced! Congratulations to Kurtis Findlay who won the Goodfeathers QMx figure! There will be more contests in the future! To be eligible for future contests, make sure to leave our podcast a positive 5-star review on Apple Podcasts!

A Pinky and the Brain Movie?

Thanks to an Instagram post from George Evangelista, there's been a lot of talk (and some confusion) about a possible Pinky and the Brain movie.

The fan art by is not official and is not part of any upcoming movie. However, this post did bring up some interesting revelations from Kirk Tingblad and Russell Calabrese who directed many episodes of the Pinky and the Brain series. The two revealed on Facebook that they had pitched a live action Pinky and the Brain movie to Jean MacCurdy in the 90s. The movie would involve the two mice turning into humans (played by Maurice LaMarche and Rob Paulsen.) Nathan and Joey discuss this concept and whether or not they think it would have worked.

A Blast From Hipsville

The Warners are in San Francisco in the 1960s. The trio decides to visit a beatnik club so that Dot can recite some of her poetry. Unfortunately the beaniks find her poetry so square that they boo her off the stage. After finding out a way to make her poetry more miserable, the Warners go back so that Dot can talk about how awful life is! Yakko and Wakko soon realize that they've got to save Dot from spreading misery, after all, their contract forbids it!

The Mod Couple

The Brain comes up with a way to take over the world once again! This time, he will collect all the rubber from the world's go-go boots and create a humongous slingshot.  He will then threaten to throw the Earth into the sun if the world does not submit to his rule. The two lab mice go off to a concert with the "Fab Four" so that they can steal as many go-go boots from the women dancing. Unfortunately their machine goes haywire and the two are unable to accomplish anything other than giving the "Fab Four" inspirational lyrics for music. If you're a Beatles fan, there's lots of references to their music!

Birds on a Wire

The Scoring Session

Animaniacs composer Richard Stone is unavailable, so a new conductor is called in. Neivel Nosenest tries to conduct the Warner Bros. orchestra but Yakko, Wakko and Dot keep finding ways to annoy him! What follows is a fun cartoon that showcases the importance of music in animated cartoons.

The Animaniacs Suite

A montage of Animaniacs' greatest hits is shown along with a marvelous score by Richard Stone. It's a beautiful piece of music that shows what made Animaniacs such an amazing cartoon. The hosts share their favorite moments and sections of music.

Each week, Joey, Nathan and Kelly revisit an episode of Animaniacs in the order in which they first premiered. Today Joey and Nathan get together once again to talk about an Animaniacs comic book! Its issue 11 featuring the Brain using a duplication machine and the Warners traveling to Austria to visit Castle Frankenstein!

Special Giveaway!

Do you want a Goodfeathers QFig signed by Maurice LaMarche, John Mariano, Chick Vennera, and Tom Ruegger? Then just leave a positive 5 star rating and review on Apple Podcasts or iTunes! We will select a one listener review at random at the end of January! Leave your review today and listen later on February 3rd to see if you're the winner!

Brain for Brain

The Brain is tired of Pinky messing up his plans to take over the world so he kicks Pinky out of the lab and uses a duplication ray to create a clone! But "Brain #2" doesn't want to be an assistant and steals the ray. Brain realizes he made a mistake in firing Pinky and begs him to return. Before you know it, there are hundreds of Brains in the lab and they all want Pinky for their assistant! How will Pinky and the Brain get rid of all the duplicates?

Nathan and Joey discuss their favorite moments in this very funny comic. The quality of the art and writing is quite good and the story could have even been good enough to be on TV!

Frankly Frankenstein

The Warners hitch a ride in a crate traveling to Austria and make their way to Castle Frankenstein. The only problem is, Doctor Frankenstein is actually Dr. Frankensniff and he looks a lot like an evil Dr. Scratchansniff. To make things even more confusing Igor looks like Hello Nurse and the Monster looks like Mr. Plotz!

This comic has a surprise ending that is slightly amusing, but doesn't have the gags that one would expect from a Warners cartoon.

Each week, Joey, Nathan and Kelly revisit an episode of Animaniacs in the order in which they first premiered. Today your hosts discuss episode 98 of Animaniacs which features the segments "The Christmas Tree" and "The Prom" and "Punchline."

Special Giveaway!

Do you want a Goodfeathers QFig signed by Maurice LaMarche, John Mariano, Chick Vennera, and Tom Ruegger? Then just leave a positive 5 star rating and review on Apple Podcasts or iTunes! We will select a one listener review at random at the end of January! Leave your review today and listen later on February 3rd to see if you're the winner!

The Christmas Tree

It's the last cartoon featuring Slappy Squirrel on Animaniacs! In this final outing, Slappy finds out that her tree has been cut down and erected in Rocky Fellow Center in New York! How will she get her tree back to the forest? There are a lot of other questions in this final Slappy cartoon. Her behavior is different than usual and her tree house is completely different! The hosts share their theories on why this might be and discuss their favorite moments in this final Slappy cartoon.

Punchline (Part One and Two)

Chicken Boo is on Punchline as a guest commentator. The question to the panel is "Why did the chicken cross the road?" Luckily there are other Animaniacs characters who have theories including Pinky and the Brain and the Goodfeathers. The Brain has some pretty far out theories while Pinky can see that Chicken Boo is a chicken in disguise. Does this prove the theory that Pinky is the genius and the Brain is insane?

The Prom

It's the final Katie Ka-Boom cartoon and the first and last time that her father stands up to her monster alter-ego. Was this Katie Ka-Boom cartoon funnier than previous episodes, or a dud?

The Carpool

The Warners get picked up from their water tower and join a carpool of employees on their way to work. The trio of siblings proceed to annoy the adults in the car, especially the grumpy character named Ed. This cartoon has it all! Insane seat belt use, distracted drivers, annoyed passengers, and even a carsick Wakko!

The Sunshine Squirrels

In a parody of Neil Simon's "The Sunshine Boys," Slappy finds herself reunited with Suzy Squirrel voiced by Phyllis Diller! The two are invited to perform their restaurant sketch in front of a live audience. Unfortunately the two hate each other and Suzy like to make changes to their script. But there's no problem Slappy can't solve as long as she has explosives on hand!
