Animaniacs S01E46

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?

Turkey Jerky

The Warners protect their pet turkey from Miles Standish who wants the turkey for the first Thanksgiving. The siblings annoy, shrink, scare, and eventually drive the Pilgrim crazy. Just in time for dinner!

The hosts discuss their favorite moments from this very “Looney Tunes-esque” episode. Cultural references are discussed including an abstract one to Trident commercials.

Wild Blue Yonder

A baby bird looks up and down… but mostly up, for his mother. He ends up getting into a stealth bomber and has bombs dropped on him before his safely makes it back to his mother.

Your hosts discuss a few cute and slightly disturbing elements in this one-off cartoon which features Cody Ruegger as the voice of the baby bird!
