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! In this special episode, Joey, Nathan and Kelly welcome John P. McCann to discuss what it was like writing for Animaniacs and other shows like Freakazoid. You'll also find out what John's been up to since then.
John shares how he first got involved with Animaniacs after first writing an episode for Tiny Toon Adventures. He talks about some of his favorite episodes, characters, and what it was like working with Steven Spielberg. John has some very interesting stories to tell about what it was like working on Animaniacs and why it was unlike any other writing experience.
Some time is spent talking with John about his experiences working on Freakazoid. John voiced Dexter Douglas' dad, Douglas Douglas, as well as the heroic and annoying Hero Boy!
John has not been asked to return to the new series. While he remains "cautiously optimistic," he talks about why he thinks the show won't be the same. One of the reasons is that the writing staff will be completely new and the other factor is that John believes that the studio won't invest as much money as they did in the past. While the new show may look and feel different he asserts that, "We'll always have Paris."
John has recently written several e-books and has written a few episodes of cartoons here and there. John's latest book, They Took My Prostate, is about John's experience with prostate cancer. John talks about why he decided to write the book and talks about some of his other books as well. You can check out his work on Amazon HERE.
