Animaniacs S01E24 “Opportunity Knox” and “Wings Take Heart”

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! In the end, each episode is given a “Water Tower Rating” by the hosts. How many water towers will this episode get?

“Yakko’s Wonderful World of Baldness”

  • Yakko and the Warner siblings start the show off with an infomercial promising to shave your head and paint it with a shiny paint. Ralph is shown getting his hair cut and then buffed and painted for just $19.95!
  • Connections to infomercials of the past are made as well as a general discussion about baldness today and how its not really such a big deal anymore.

“Opportunity Knox”

  • Pinky and the Brain return! This time Brain has an idea that makes some sense. They will go to Fort Knox and take control of the nation’s capital! Unfortunately the automatic weight of gold gets in the way.
  • The hosts discuss their favorite moments and lines as well as some connections to classic Looney Tunes cartoons.

“Wings Take Heart”

  • Two “bugs” fall in love in this cartoon with no real lines of dialogue. The boy bug gets separated from the girl and faces various threats before being reunited with his lovely “bug” girlfriend.
  • The hosts discuss what types of insects this may be as well as the moments that made them scratch their heads.
  • This cartoon seemed similar to many Silly Symphonies and Merrie Melodies cartoons from the past. Especially, “Moth and the Flame” which can be found HERE.
