It's time for the Animanicast with another Animaniacs reboot discussion!

The Animanicast finishes their season one reboot episode reviews with a discussion of the thirteenth episode! Dr. Scratchansniff needs some soda, Pinky and the Brain go on a road trip against their will and Dot sorta sings about the first ladies! How many water towers will this episode get?

Hindenberg Cola

Dr. S. is sick and needs the Warners to find some special German soda for his belly. The trio run into a foe from a previous episode but are still able to bring the soda back to the doctor. Unfortunately Dr. Scratchansniff is not the old Dr. S. from the original series.

Roadent Trip

The Brain has designed a "Model B" car to trap everyone inside their vehicles. Unfortunately Pinky and the Brain get trapped inside it instead and are taken on a hazardous road trip across the United States. Brain also reveals a sad and dark origin story before they are able to escape. Also, there's a song about a banana hammock.

FLOTUS, FLOTUS: What Do You Know About Us?

Dot attempts to sing about all the first ladies in just two minutes. Unfortunately the song misses one and the hosts of the Animanicast don't appreciate it's lack of focus and how it really should not be used in education.

It's time for the Animanicast with another Animaniacs reboot discussion!

The Animanicast continues their reboot episode reviews with a discussion of the twelfth episode! Dot sings a song about a zit, Pinky and the Brain tell some Arabian tales, and the Warners take on a manspreader! How many water towers will this episode get?

A Zit!

Dot finds out she has a zit and is horrified! It turns out her zit is just as horrified to be on Dot! The two sing a song that sounds reminiscent of "I'm Mad." But does this song reach that same level of excellence?

1001 Narfs

Pinky and the Brain are on a mission to steal a sultana's horses but are captured! It's up to Brain to entertain the sultana with stories in order to not be executed. With tales like "Ali Babrain," "Brainladin" and "Pinkbad" will this cartoon be fresh and original, or will it just be a collection of "lazy parodies?"

Manny Manspreader

The Warners go to the theater to see a new movie starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.  Unfortunately they can't sit together due to a man who spreads his legs and takes up too much room! It's up to the Warners to take on the manspreader using the combined forces of the audience.

It's time for the Animanicast with another Animaniacs reboot discussion!

The Animanicast gets back to their reboot episode reviews with a discussion of the seventh episode! This episode features "Warner She Wrote," "France France Revolution," and "Gift Rapper." With a new take on Agatha Christie mysteries, parodying the French Revolution and rapping about Shakespeare, this episode could be great! But do the hosts of the Animanicast like it? Listen to today's episode to find out!

Warner She Wrote

Hercule Yakko returns with his detective siblings to unravel the case of a dog napping on the Occident Express! Will the Warners crack the case? Will this cartoon be as funny as "Hercule Yakko" in the original Animaniacs series?

France France Revolution

The Warners are living as peasants and are starving in the French countryside. When Marie-Antoinette passes by however they're inspired to pose as peasants and eat all of her delicious food! But will the execution of this cartoon be as entertaining as it promises?

Gift Rapper

The Warners crash the set of a rap video. Unfortunately the rapper shows some disrespect towards William Shakespeare and the Animaniacs series so it's up to Yakko to defend their honor with rap!
