It’s time for the Animanicast: Discussing Tiny Toons “The Potty Years”

Join your hosts Joey, Nathan and Kelly in the “Animanicast!” A podcast dedicated to Animaniacs! Today Joey, Nathan and Kelly once again skip ahead in the cartoon timeline and talk about another episode of Tiny Toon Adventures featuring  Babs trying to “Stand-Up and Deliver,” a young Plucky in “The Potty Years,” and Buster tries to save his “Lame Joke.”

Each week, Joey, Nathan and Kelly revisit an episode of Animaniacs, Tiny Toon Adventures, Pinky and the Brain, or Freakazoid! Today, your hosts talk about another episode of Tiny Toon Adventures that focuses on comedy and toilets!

Henny Youngman Day

The legendary comedian Henny Youngman voices a giant chicken named “Henny Youngman” who substitute teaches for Daffy Duck. Youngman tells jokes to the students who quickly tire of his jokes. What will the hosts of the Animanicast think of this classic comedy?

Stand-Up and Deliver

Babs is going to perform her comedy at the local comedy club! Unfortunately Robin Killems opens for her and she is completely intimidated and can’t compete with his act. Luckily Robin rescues Babs and her act is a success. The hosts discuss the connections Sherri Stoner and Maurice LaMarche have with comedy clubs and how this cartoon is a nice salute to Robin Williams.

The Potty Years

Plucky remembers when he was potty trained. Baby Plucky loved to flush the potty and quickly tries to flush everything he can see! This hilarious and cute story is actually based upon a real event in Tom Ruegger’s life. His youngest son, Cody, loved flushing the toilet as well and ended up flooding their hotel room! A clip from episode 68a is played when the Animanicast interviewed Nathan, Luke, and Cody Ruegger about their experiences working on Animaniacs. You can listen to it here.

Lame Joke

Buster has a joke that he loves to tell. Unfortunately his friends hate it. The lame joke is personified as a lame clown who collapses and is taken to the hospital. Will Buster be able to save his lame joke and make anybody laugh?

Water Tower Rating

What will the hosts think of this episode and “The Potty Years?”
