Animaniacs S01E32 Chairman of the Bored/Planets Song/Astro-Buttons

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 episode features the Warners trying to get away from the incredibly boring Francis “Pip” Pumphandle, and much more!

“Chairman of the Bored”

  • The Warners are eating cheese balls at a fancy Hollywood party and bump into “Pip” Pumphandle. Usually they’re able to use their zany abilities to get away from someone as boring as “Pip,” but in this case he just keeps talking and won’t leave them alone!
  • Joey, Nathan and Kelly discuss some of their favorite references and some memories of watching Ben Stein in movies and TV.

“The Planets Song”

  • Yakko takes us on a tour of our solar system and forgets something.

“Astro Buttons”

  • Even in the future Mindy is driving Buttons crazy! Will Buttons finally quit when his problems multiply? Yes.
  • The hosts discuss some of their favorite moments in this cartoon.

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.
