It's time for the Animanicast discussing "Hearts of Twilight" with Tom Ruegger and Paul Rugg!

Join your hosts Joey, Nathan and Kelly in the "Animanicast!" A podcast dedicated to Animaniacs! Today the hosts welcome the creator of Animaniacs, Tom Ruegger, and writer and voice actor, Paul Rugg! Listen to your hosts talk about the classic cartoon "Hearts of Twilight" and get the inside scoop on how the episode was developed and written with Tom Ruegger and Paul Rugg! Plus, a very special guest makes a surprise appearance! It's enough to make a listener say, "Flamiel!"

Hearts of Twilight

Hearts of Twilight is a classic episode of Animaniacs that almost never came to be. Influenced heavily by "Apocalypse Now" and the documentary "Hearts of Darkness" this cartoon written by Paul Rugg was initially rejected by Tom Ruegger! Paul talks to the Animanicast and explains how he wrote the episode and why it's one of his favorite episodes of the show. Tom then welcomes a very famous director and asks him questions that we've all wanted the answers to. This is an episode that will make you chant "Froynlaven!"
