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 fifth episode is the first episode of The Animaniacs that features one half hour story:

Taming of the Screwy

Japanese investors are coming to visit the Warner Brothers lot and they want to meet everyone. Including the Warners! Dr. Scratchansniff is given the seemingly impossible task of teaching the Warners to how to act properly at a fancy party. After singing the “Etiquette Song” and driving Dr. Scratchansniff crazy, the Warners are allowed to come to the party when they are able to prove they can behave themselves. But how long will that last?

The studio party has a ton of celebrities and lots of pop cultural references to identify. Some of these celebrities are easier to identify than others. Joey identifies a couple of celebrities that many guides have been unable to identify thus far. There’s also some similarities to classic Disney and Warner Brothers cartoons from the 1930s and 40s.
