Animanicast #70: Discussing “Super Strong Warner Siblings,” “Nutcracker Slappy” Wakko’s New Gookie,” “A Quake! A Quake!” and An Animaniacs Reboot Discussion
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! Season three is off with a super strong start in this packed full episode. This episode kicks off a new variation on the opening credits, which lead right in to our first segment. Then we have a new theme song for Skippy and Slappy. Will Wakko be able to come up with a new Gookie as well? To finish the episode off we get a song about shaking things up!
Super Strong Warner Siblings/Nutcracker Slappy/Wakko’s New Gookie/A Quake, a Quake!
Super Strong Warner Siblings
Picking up right after the shoot of their theme song, the Warners do a parody of Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers. The segment of course leads to the classic monster vs. Robot fight, with an animaniacs twist. Joey, Kelly, and Nathan discuss their memories of the Power Rangers, and are all impressed with how well they adapted the show into this very funny segment.
Wakko’s New Gookie
Wakko has decided to kick it off the new season with a fresh new Gookie to replace his old one. He tries it out for Yakko, Michaelangelo from “Hooked on a Ceiling”, Bob Hope, Katharine Hepburn, and Larry King, but none of them like it as much as the old one. The episode ends with Yakko’s attempts at a new catch phrase for season three, and yes, another Speilberg reference.
A Quake, A Quake!
The Warners sing a song about the 1994 Northridge earthquake to the tune of Schumann’s “Happy Farmer”. Joey is confused because these aren’t the lyrics he remembers. Nathan is now concerned about living in earthquake ridden LA, and Kelly is impressed about the date we recorded the podcast.
Find out the latest about the Animanics reboot, and how Kelly, Nathan, and Joey are processing the information. We also discuss the strange episode order on Hulu, and share some Listener Feedback!
