Animaniacs S01E36  “Critical Condition” and “The Three Muska-Warners”

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-sixth episode shows why you should never insult Slappy the Squirrel’s comic abilties and what happens when you hire the Warners as your bodyguards.

Critical Condition

Slappy and Skippy get revenge on two movie critics after they pan her performances through the use of numerous explosives, false doors, a dinosaur, and even a liposuction pump. The two Siskel and Ebert caricatures eventually see the error of their ways… and get blown up one last time.

The hosts discuss their memories of Siskel and Ebert, laser discs, and their favorite moments of this cartoon. One moment in particular stands out as one of the most disgusting moments ever in the show. Spew!

Joey points out the similarities in design between the dinosaur in this cartoon and Dudley the Dinosaur from PSA’s in the 90’s. It turns out that Star Toons was responsible for Dudley and this particular Slappy cartoon. It all makes sense now!

The Three Muska-Warners

The Warners star in this salute to The Three Musketeers! Protecting the king from “The Viper” who must be really scary, right?

Joey, Nathan, and Kelly discuss this cartoon’s connections to the Marx Brothers, the Mickey Mouse Club, andThe Honeymooners. There’s lots of energy and quick gags in this Warner siblings short!
