Animanicast 197: Reviewing Episode 4 of the Animaniacs Reboot

by The Animanicast

It’s time for the Animanicast! Discussing the fourth episode of the reboot!

Joey, Nathan and Kelly continue their discussion and review of the Animaniacs reboot. This time they talk about the fourth episode featuring the segments: “Bun Control,” “Ex Mousina” and “Bloopf.” Listen to hear about all the references you may have missed and find out what the hosts of the Animanicast think about this episode!

Bun Control

The Warner Bros Studio is visited by salesman Dwayne Lapistol who is handing out bunnies. These “buns” get out of hand very quickly however and before you know it, they’ve taken over the studio! The Warners try to defeat Lapistol with a cool Anime sequence but end up having to call Australia to control the bun problem. This thinly veiled metaphor for gun control has a few humorous moments and an incredibly disturbing villain. But will the hosts of the Animanicast enjoy it? One of the Animanicast’s Australian listeners, “yakkomon” explains some of the Austrailian references found in this episode.

Ex Mousina

Brain creates a son named Binary Rodent Artificially Intelligent Nanotechnology, or B.R.A.I.N. for short. B.R.A.I.N. helps Brain steal the crown jewels, but after he sees that his father’s ego is getting in the way, he decides to remove Pinky and the Brain from the equation.


The Warners premiere a new app that appears to be parodying Quibi.
