Animaniacs S01E08

The Big Candy Store Bumbie's Mom



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? This eighth episode features the segments “The Big Candy Store” and “Bumbie’s Mom”

The Warner’s Lot Song

  • A parody of the Gilligan’s Island song! Your hosts discuss how cancelling The Animaniacs led to the current drought in California.

The Randy Beaman Kid

  • The hosts share their thoughts on the “Randy Beaman Kid” (Collin) as well as some similarities to another character from “Kids in the Hall”.

The Big Candy Store

  • The Warners try to get some free candy from Flaxseed’s Totality of Candy. Of course that’s not going to happen. So instead the Warner’s drive him crazy and help out some orphans in the process! Listen to your hosts talk about their favorite moments and the possible connection to another Marx Brother’s film!

Bumbie’s Mom

  • One of the BEST Skippy and Slappy cartoons. Slappy takes her nephew to see “Bumbie” in the movie theater but as soon as Bumbie’s mom is killed, Skippy falls apart and starts crying. It continues to traumatize him until they finally meet the actress behind the role of Bumbie’s mom. The hosts talk about why this cartoon is one of the all time best segments ever produced by Animaniacs!
  • Quick Note: Joey thought that Gene Shalit had died a while ago. Turns out he’s still alive!
