Animanicast #74: Discussing Animaniacs “The Kid in the Lid,” “Method to Her Madness” and 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! Today’s episode features a parody of “The Lion King,” a sequel to “Yakko’s World,” a tribute to Dr. Seuss, and Slappy gives actors a lesson in real method acting.

The Tiger Prince/All The Words in the English Language/The Kid in the Lid/Method to Her Madness

The Tiger Prince

It’s a surprisingly well done parody of the lion king opening song. Joey, Kelly, and Nathan compare all the shots and lyrics to the motion picture, and discover some unique coincidences.

All The Words in the English Language

Yakko attempts to top his classic song “Yakko’s World” by singing “All the Words in the English Language”.  Dot and Dick Button act as sports announcers as we repeatedly return to see Yakko’s progress in this three part segment. By the end, Yakko is completely exhausted, and collapses before he can finish. Amazingly he pulls out just enough strength to finish the song,

The Kid in the Lid

It’s a Dr. Seuss Parody staring Yakko as the Cat in the Hat, or in this case, the Kid in the Lid. Just like the Cat in the Hat, the Kids are unable to go outside, and their parents are away. This segment even has Dot and Wakko filling in for Thing 1 and Thing 2 as Kid 1 and Kid 2.  The Warners end up destroying the house only to rebuild it after the parents come home. Nathan, Kelly, and Joey talk about Baynarts’ name and their favorite rhymes in this Seussian segment.

Method to Her Madness

Skippy is taking a class in the Stanislavski method, and Slappy decides to watch a class.  Skippy is top of the class, but Slappy only sees the same bored expression over and over. Slappy decides to teach everyone real acting which involves comedic timing and comic violence.  This segment has TONS of caricature cameos and Joe, Nathan, and Kelly try to remember them all while discussing their favorite gags.

Rob Paulsen is one of the nicest People on earth

Kelly recalls her first meeting with Rob Paulsen, and Nathan and Joey read off some more listeners emails remembering Rob.
