Animaniacs S01E34  “Clown and Out” and “Bubba Bo Bob Brain”

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! Each episode is then given a “Water Tower Rating” by the hosts. How many water towers will this episode get? This thirty-fourth episode features Wakko defending himself from a clown on his birthday and the Brain almost takes over the world as a country singer!

Clown and Out

It’s Wakko’s birthday, so Mr. Plotz hires Mr. Clown to entertain him. What he doesn’t realize is that Wakko suffers from “clownophobia” and will attack any clown he sees. Mr. Clown, (who looks a lot like Mr. Director in makeup) tries to entertain Wakko and assure him that he’s just a nice clown but Wakko won’t hear it. Mr. Clown is hit over the head, shot by a canon, and eventually launched into space where he gets to entertain little martian children.


The hosts discuss their favorite moments of this cartoon and discuss whether or not Mr. Clown and Mr. Director are the same person. Writer Paul Rugg doesn’t help clear things up when Joey reaches out to him.


Kelly makes a cool connection between this cartoon and “Hello Nice Warners,” it’s all connected to the funny pronunciation of “animal.”

Bubba Bo Bob Brain

Pinky and the Brain are back once again! Brain realizes that country music is so popular that he could use a subliminal message to take over the minds of anyone that listens to his song. The two mice go off to Nashville and quickly become the biggest country stars in the world thanks to Brain’s subliminal message. Pinky ends up upsetting Brain at the last minute however and Brain tells Pinky (and everyone else under his spell) to forget his name. The two them return to Acme Labs to try and take over the world again tomorrow night.

This cartoon is pure comedy gold!  The hosts review the different cultural references pertaining to country music and compare the songs played in the cartoon to their original source material.

Favorite moments are discussed and much like “Clown and Out,” there’s a lot of them! Almost every line of this cartoon is a classic and remains funny even after multiple viewings.
