Each and every week, your hosts revisit an episode of the series in the order in which they first premiered. They discuss their favorite jokes, gags, and discuss all the cultural references they can find! Today's episode features another discussion with the creator of Animaniacs, Tom Ruegger.

Animaniacs' Theme

First, Tom shares some of the original lyrics for the theme to "Animaniacs." Joey "sings" the song and Tom provides some background to how the theme song was created as well as how other themes such as "Tiny Toon Adventures" and "Freakazoid" were written.

Voice Actors of Animaniacs and Wakko Auditions

Tom discusses how the voice actors of Animaniacs were selected, including Maurice LaMarche, Tress MacNielle, Rob Paulsen and Jess Harnell. Before Jess came in to audition for the part of Wakko, several other prominent voice actors auditioned for the part of Wakko. Some of these include Maurice LaMarche, Arte Johnson, John Kassir, Frank Welker, and even Rob Paulsen! Tom shares an audition tape that has not been heard in over 25 years which has these auditions for Wakko.

Tom also shares some tips for aspiring voice actors.
