Animanicast 202: Review of Animaniacs Reboot Episode Eight!

by The Animanicast

It’s time for the Animanicast with another Animaniacs reboot discussion!

The Animanicast gets back to their reboot episode reviews with a discussion of the eighth episode! Wakko is on the case of the missing donuts, the Brain runs for president until his first lady takes the spotlight and we get our first look at two new characters!  This episode has some very funny moments but unfortunately it also has moments that the hosts didn’t find funny at all. Find out what worked and find out what they all found shocking.


Wakko’s donuts have been eaten! Who ate them? The Warners go on an investigation.

Mousechurian Candidate

The Brain wants to become president, but in order to do so he needs to be married. He takes a mouse and genetically alters her intelligence. His new wife, Julia, soon takes over his campaign and becomes the presidential candidate! What follows is a moment that the hosts actually found offensive and not in character for Brain.

Starbox and Cindy

Starbox wants to take over the Earth but is unable to because he has become the hostage of a young girl who thinks he’s a toy.
