Animaniacs S01E53

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?


In the first segment, Dr. Scratchansniff is takes a date to the Drive-In but unfortunately the Warners show up and ruin everything.

The hosts reflect upon their experiences at drive-ins and discuss their favorite moments in this very funny cartoon.


The Goodfeather’s girlfriends (the Girlfeathers) want to go on a trip to the Grand Canyon but the Goodfeathers follow along. While trying to keep close behind, the boys do little more than find creative ways to get hurt.

Upon reflection, the hosts don’t find much that they really love about this cartoon. There’s some good gags, but the Goodfeathers are annoying and the end of the episode is forgettable. While the Girlfeathers’ discussions are rather one-dimensional, Nathan points out that they do pass the Bechdel test!

I’m Cute

Dot sings about her favorite subject, how cute she is! Her catchy song features her brothers singing backup until they can no longer stand her bragging.
