Each and every week, your hosts 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's episode features a great way to memorize the names of the presidents with "The Presidents Song." Then Pinky and the Brain return with "Don't Tread on Us." Finally, "The Flame Returns" to tell the tale of Paul Revere.
The Presidents Song/Don't Tread on Us/The Flame Returns
The Warners sing about the presidents from George Washington to Bill Clinton in the tune of William Tell Overture. This song is the perfect balance of educational and entertaining. Kelly, Joey, and Nathan discuss their favorite parts.
Pinky and the Brain are in the year 1776, just in time to swap the Declaration of Independence with the Declaration of Obedience. Unfortunately things don’t go as planned, as Brain gets covered in Ink, struck by lightning, and deaf from the Liberty bell. Nathan starts going off on some conspiracy theory about Pinky and the Brain, while Kelly and Joey both discuss what they enjoyed in the segment. Back to the Future connections are also theorized and shot down.
The Flame is back and reading the poem "Paul Revere’s Ride," while we get visual representations featuring cameos by at least one of every main story character of the Animaniacs cast. This segment stays incredibly close to the source material while keeping things visually interesting for the kids. The hosts discuss their favorite parts and some exclusive information from Tom Ruegger himself about the making of this cartoon.
Joey reads off some more listeners emails detailing their experiences meeting Rob Paulsen including Joey O. who shared a link to an interview he had with Rob Paulsen. As well as Kristy Sproul who detailed how Rob Paulsen's work in Animaniacs ended up setting her on the path towards Voice Chasers!
Nathan does a marvelous job acting out the last of the Kathryn Page credit gags!
