Animaniacs S01E29 “Draculee, Draculaa” “Phranken-Runt”

Each and every week, your hosts revisit an episode of Animaniacs in the order in which they first premiered. They discuss their favorite jokes, gags, and all the cultural references they can find! In the end, each episode is given a “Water Tower Rating.” How many water towers will this episode get? This spooky 29th episode features the Warners visiting Dracula and ends with a musical retelling of Frankenstein!

“Draculee, Draculaa”

  • In the first cartoon, the Warners try to get to Pennsylvania  to visit their ancestors, whom Yakko assumes must be pencils. Instead they end up in Transylvania and stop by Dracula’s castle.  Dracula welcomes them in since he is very eager for the chance to suck Dot’s blood. He soon finds out that he should never have let the Warners into his house when they proceed to drive him batty.
  • Joey, Nathan, and Kelly discuss many cultural references and favorite gags in this cartoon.
  • Dot proclaims at one point in this cartoon that she thinks she looks like Sheena Easton. Joey plays a sample from one of her songs, but none of the hosts remember Sheena Easton having weird things in her hair.
  • This episode was written 25 years ago by John P. McCann. You can read more about how it was picked up at his blog HERE.
  • Joey also shares some feedback from Paul Rugg who followed up regarding the elimination of “You Risk Your Life” in the Netflix feed of Animaniacs and how this might affect whether or not Freakazoid is ever seen on Netflix.

“Phranken-Runt”

  • In the next cartoon Rita and Runt find themselves trapped in a castle in Transylvania. While there, Dr. Phrankenstein tries to put Runt’s brain into her own monster dog. Lots of catchy tunes and gags are featured and discussed in this cartoon.
  • Dr. Phrankenstein is a caricature of the late,great Madeline Khan. The hosts discuss her performances in “Blazing Saddles,” “Young Frankenstein.” and “An American Tale.”

Water Tower Rating and Poll Results

  • Finally it’s time for Kelly, Nathan, and Joey share their rating of today’s episode. They then give their thoughts on last week’s poll.
