It’s time again for the Animanicast! Here’s episode fifty discussing “Twas the Day Before Christmas,” “Jingle Boo” and much 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 50 of Animaniacs features the Warners getting a visit from Santa Ralph, Chicken Boo dresses up as Santa Claus, the Warners visit a toy shop with an evil robot, and lots more!
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?
Twas the Day Before Christmas
The Warners are preparing for a visit from Santa. In order to make sure they get the visit however, Mr. Plotz hires Ralph the Guard to dress up as Santa and deliver presents. Ralph does a pretty horrible job, but luckily the real Santa comes in at the end to give presents to the trio.
This parody of “Twas the Night Before Christmas” has some great gags and was recently performed by Rob Paulsen, Maurice LaMarche, Sherri Stoner, and Nathan Ruegger. To hear it, head over to Rob Paulsen’s “Talkin’ Toons” podcast!
Chicken Boo dresses up as Santa and while most kids don’t see past the facade, little Colin certainly does! He pulls off his beard and Chicken Boo is kicked out. Luckily for Boo however, Santa is there to give him a happy ending for once.
The hosts discuss similarities this cartoon has with “A Christmas Story” as well as the odd concept that Chicken Boo can get away with things in Arkansas.
The Great Wakkorotti: The Holiday Concert
Wakko is back to sing/burp “Jingle Bells.” The animation is the same, the song is different, but the hosts are rather indifferent to this segment.
Toy Shop Terror
The Warners visit a toy shop after hours and are chased by an evil toy robot! The entire cartoon features the score “Powerhouse” which is very catchy and brings a lot of energy to this cartoon which features very little dialogue.
