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 celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Animaniacs by welcoming Tom Ruegger back to the show along with the voice of Slappy Squirrel, Sherri Stoner!
