It’s time for the Animanicast with a discussion of the upcoming Animaniacs Reboot and an Animaniacs Comic!

Join your hosts Joey, Nathan and Kelly in the “Animanicast!” A podcast dedicated to Animaniacs! Today your hosts discuss the anticipation of the Animaniacs Reboot, share listeners’ thoughts and review issue #18 of the Animaniacs Comic!

Each week, Joey, Nathan and Kelly revisit an episode of Animaniacs, Tiny Toon Adventures, Pinky and the Brain, or Freakazoid! Today the hosts discuss the upcoming reboot of Animaniacs and what fans of the series are looking forward to. They later review issue #18 of the classic Animaniacs comic book showing what happens when the Animaniacs go to France!

Animaniacs Reboot

Are Animaniacs fans excited about the reboot? It looks like many of them are based upon responses to the Animanicast’s Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts! However there are some folks out there that are worried that the reboot will not live up to the original, especially without the involvement of Animaniacs creator, Tom Ruegger. Joey, Kelly and Nathan share thoughts from listeners, discuss their expectations of the series and share some possible news– Is Freakazoid being rebooted or making a cameo on the Animaniacs reboot?

Animaniacs Issue #18

The hosts discuss the eighteenth issue of Animaniacs from 1996. The Warners attempt to get French fries, Slappy deals with a mime, and Minerva Mink plays dress up! Will this episode be sweet like French wine or as stinky as brie cheese? Listen to find out!
