Animaniacs S01E47

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?

Video Revue

In what might be the Animaniacs cartoon with the most pop cultural references, the Warners take a stroll through a video store late at night. Each cover has living characters on the cover or puns which assist the trio along the way when they run into a T-Rex from “Jurassic Park.”

Instead of discussing each and every movie, the hosts simply discuss a few select movies that caught their eye. Kelly brings up Spielberg titles and Nathan brings up Star Wars. Some of their favorite  movies such as “Soap Dish” are also discussed. The hosts also reflect upon the experience of visiting a video store like Blockbuster and how that experience is hard to get these days.

When Mice Ruled the World

Pinky and the Brain steal a time machine created by H.G. Wells to go back in time to critical moments when mice evolved in the hopes of teaching them skills to surpass those of humans. This time they’re successful, but end up having to undo everything when the world is inhabited by mice that all look and act like Pinky!

The Goodbye Song

The Warners sing goodbye song based upon Carol Burnett’s song. Some differences between this song and the version found on the Animaniacs soundtrack, “Variety Pack” are played.
