Reboot News

Joey gives an update on the Animaniacs Reboot by reading a blog entry from Animaniacs writer Greg White from his tumblr page. The hosts discuss the news and give their thoughts on what the animation style might look like based upon his description. This leads into a conversation about the upcoming Thundercats reboot style and memories of the original show.

Dot’s Entertainment

It’s an Andrew Lloyd Weber parody mashup!  Kelly tells us all about the segment while Nathan and Joey discuss all the musicals they are familiar with.

The Girl with the Googily Goop

Move over Betty Boop, Googily Goop is in town and starring in this “Found-Footage” segment with the Warners. The hosts discuss their favorite moments and Joey questions why Googily got to have a red nose. Nathan accidentally takes the conversation off the road when he mentions Star Wars which sends Joey and Kelly into a Star Wars tangent. Luckily they manage to get back on topic and talk about Animaniacs again.
