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! Each episode is given a “Water Tower Rating” by the hosts. How many water towers will this episode get? This tenth episode features “King Yakko.”

King Yakko

  • In the second Animaniacs episode to feature one plot line the Warner siblings go to Anvilania where Yakko is the heir to the throne. This zany episode features many references to the classic Marx Brothers film “Duck Soup” and features two actors from “This Is Spinal Tap.” Listen to your hosts talk about their favorite lines and discuss the celebrity and pop cultural references that some folks today might not know. Does Nathan really not know who Bob Hope was?
  • Also… was that a bearded woman at the end?
  • Check out Tom Ruegger’s blog to see Yakko get up close and personal with Prime Minister Nurse.
