Animaniacs S01E35  “In the Garden of Mindy,” “No Place Like Homeless” and much, much more!

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-fifth episode shows what happens when the Warners take the show and mix things up completely! It’s a special cross-over episode with many of the characters playing different roles.

In the Garden of Mindy

It’s Mindy and the Brain. Yes, Mindy and the Brain. Our first unorthodox pairing puts a toddler and a maniacal mouse together. Brain is trying to take over the world with a stink bomb and needs Mindy to help him before her mom comes home!

The hosts discuss their favorite moments of this cartoon and discuss how this cartoon was, in a sense, a preview of what was to come with “Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain.”

No Place Like Homeless

The next major combination features Pesto and Runt together seeking shelter from the rain. An old lady takes Runt inside but repeatedly beats up on Pesto since he might suck Runt’s blood.

The hosts discuss what they liked about this pairing and the weird old woman, Mrs. Mumphead.

Katie Ka Boo!

It’s the first Katie Ka Boom cartoon. Katie is dating someone from school named C.B.. Her parents try to warn her that he’s a giant chicken, but that just makes her very angry!

Kelly shares her thougts on Katie and why she never really liked the character. Joey and Nathan share why they consider Katie to be more of a super hero and why she deserves her own spin off.

Baghdad Cafe

Sodarn Hinsane (a caricature of Saddam Hussein)  is talking about taking over places with his tanks when he is interrupted by Yakko, Wakko, and their sister… Slappy! Slappy tries to fill the role of Dot, but she just doesn’t get the Warners’ sense of humor. She calls it a night by simply throwing dynamite down Sodarn’s pants and going home.

The hosts discuss some of the funniest moments. Slappy actually ends up being funnier than both Yakko and Wakko!
