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, Kelly and Nathan discuss Animaniacs episode 91 which features the segments
Joey summarizes some of the most recent news regarding the Animaniacs reboot. A selection from a recent Rob Paulsen interview is read in which Rob reveals that the new series will premiere in the Fall of 2020 and will consist of 26 episodes. Rob also drops some big hints that he is involved in the new series. Rob also confirmed in a recent "Kids React" video that Randy Rogel is returning and has already written some songs for the show. The hosts share their thoughts on the news and while they are very happy that Steven Spielberg is said to be heavily involved, they still find it confusing that Tom Ruegger was not asked to return to the show.
After quickly discussing a "Message in a Bottle" sequence, the hosts discuss "Back in Style" in which we are shown how the Warners were loaned out to different animation companies over the decades when the Warner Bros. studio closed their animation department. The Warners interact and harass parodies of Yogi Bear, Scooby Doo, Underdog, and Fat Albert. The hosts discuss their favorite gags and their memories of watching some of the cartoons that are parodied.
Mr. Skullhead is camping with the Warners in the Old West. Before you know it, the Warners take us on a tour of the skeleton by singing a song. This song by Randy Rogel is very catchy, educational and marks the last major appearance of Mr. Skullhead.
