by The Animanicast

It’s time for the Animanicast! Here’s episode seventy nine-a featuring another review of the classic Animaniacs comic and much more!

Join your hosts Joey and Nathan in a special episode of  the “Animanicast” featuring a review of another comic book of Animaniacs. 

Animanicast #79a: We Have So Many Issues (of Animaniacs Comics)


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! Since Kelly was off at her Jeopardy audition, Joey and Nathan get to discuss another comic book issue of Animaniacs, and this one is really good! This is mostly due to the fact that the segments in this comic were all written by Charles M. Howell IV and Gordan Bressack.

We Have So Many Issues (of Animaniacs Comics)

The Cover of Issue #6

Nathan and Joey talk about this funny and incredibly detailed cover. There’s tons of gags to find and the cover leads right into the first story!

Egyptian Conniption

Yakko, Wakko, and Dot visit Ancient Egypt and mistake Cleopatra’s palace for a hotel! After some extreme remodeling and general zaniness, Julius Caesar finds his true calling of becoming a chef and creates the Caesar Salad and Cleopatra becomes a headliner at her own Hotel and Casino!

Pun Fight at the O.K. Corral

Wyatt Earp is running people out of town and is being a jerk! The Warners come from the Pony Express to deliver a pony to Earp but he wants the Warners to leave him alone and leave. Eventually the Warners get Earp dressed up in drag and up on a saloon stage. Earp ends up loving it and goes off to Hollywood! Joey and Nathan talk about their favorite gags and Joey talks about the comic reminding him of songs from Spike Jones and the City Slickers.

The Whole Tooth and Nothing But the Tooth

Wakko needs to go to the dentist and is incredibly scared. Yakko and Dot calm his fears by going to the dentist’s office and terrorizing the dentist! In the end, all the siblings realize that going to the dentist isn’t so bad, as long as there’s attractive dentists and nurses to hang out with.
