background 1500x1000

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 eleventh episode features the Warners “helping” Picasso and the epic translation of “Les Miserables” entitled “Les Miseranimals”

No Pain, No Painting

  • In our first cartoon, the Warners visit France with hopes to become models for Pablo Picasso. Picasso only wants to focus on finding a new style of art. Will the Warners help him find his new style?
  • This cartoon features some recreations of Picasso paintings as well as salutes to a member of the production team.
  • Listen to your hosts talk about what they enjoyed about this cartoon and the connections they made to Young Indiana Jones and Star Wars: The Clone Wars. (They can’t help themselves.)

Les Miseranimals

  • This is definetly, definitely the best Rita and Runt cartoon to date! Rita is being held captive outside a French restaurant and finds out that the chef wants to make meat pies from cats! WIll Runt be able to save her? Definitely.
  • This cartoon truly is a salute to Les Miserables. Listen to the similarities from the songs sung in this episode to the original cast recordings of Les Miserables.
  • Kelly then makes sure to fill us in on many of the details of Les Mis so that everyone gets a better appreciation of the episode.
  • Side note: Rita welcomes everyone to the French Revolution. The original story of Les Miserables doesn’t take place during the French Revolution. Whoops!
  • Connections to Sweeney Todd and Monty Python are discussed.
