It’s time again for the Animanicast! Here’s episode forty five discussing “Mary Tyler Dot,” “Windsor Hassle,” “…And Justice For Slappy” and more!
Join your hosts Joey, Nathan and Kelly in the “Animanicast!” A podcast dedicated to the classic 90’s cartoon show Animaniacs! Today’s discussion of episode 45 of Animaniacs features a parody of “Mary Tyler Moore,” the Warners meet the Queen in “Windsor Hassle,” and Slappy goes to court in “…And Justice For Slappy!”
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?
Mary Tyler Dot
Dot is featured in a parody of the theme from the “Mary Tyler Moore Show.” Randomness and silliness run amok in this quick song.
Your hosts discuss discuss Mary Tyler Moore and the themes are also played so that you can hear the similarity between them.
The next segment features Windsor Castle which must be remodeled after a fire. The Warners quickly come in to “help” the Queen out. In the end Yakko comes up with the idea to raise money by making the castle a cafeteria!
Kelly and Joey then share their memories of the Royal Family and the drama between different members. The stand out character of the Queen Mother was voiced by Mark Slaughter so the hosts briefly discuss the rock band “Slaughter” and read an excerpt of an interview with Mark Slaughter discussing how he got this job. The hosts discuss their favorite gags and references as well.
…And Justice For Slappy
Finally, Slappy goes to court after she is accused of assaulting Walter Wolf. In the end however she has a “dynamite case” and the jury is able to see her point of view… right before they’re blasted through the ceiling.
