Animaniacs S01E55

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?

“Gold Rush”

The Warners are in California during the Gold Rush. A prospector finds out that the Warners are having more luck than he is at finding gold and takes their gold. The Warners quickly realize that their new “special friend” isn’t so nice and spend the rest of the cartoon getting their gold back and driving the prospector crazy.

“A Gift of Gold”

This cartoon follows the “adventure” of a gold piece of wrapping paper. It is used to wrap a present, and then goes throughout the city until it is finally appreciated by a young homeless boy.

Dot’s Quiet Time

Dot wants to read a book, but can’t due to it being so loud everywhere she goes. In the end, she makes her way to the top of a mountain but realizes that it’s too quiet.
