Animaniacs S01E16 “Chalkboard Bungle,” “Hurray for Slappy” & “The Great Wakkorotti”

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 sixteenth episode features the Warners going to school, Slappy helps give an explosive presentation at a Friar’s Club dinner, and “The Great Wakkoroti” makes his premiere.


Chalkboard Bungle

  • Ms. Flamiel is hired to teach the Warner siblings, as expected things do not go as planned and “chaos ensues.” Before you know it, the Warners have broken every single rule on the board and pull a switcheroo, landing Ms. Flamiel in the water tower!
  • References to a classic (?) movie and soda commercials are discussed.
  • While this segment has some great dialogue and gags, the animation quality unfortunately negatively impacts the episode. Joey believes that the episode would be improved by making a “Special Edition” with new animation for the old dialogue. Any takers?

Hurray for Slappy

  • Slappy Squirrel is honored at the Hotel Bomb Adventure for contributions as an cartoon actress. Villians from her old cartoons however are ready to get their revenge on her for years of abuse.

The Great Wakkorroti
