Animanicast: Discussing Animaniacs Comic #7

by The Animanicast

It’s time for the Animanicast! Here’s episode eighty nine-b featuring a discussion of Issue #7 of the Animaniacs Comic!

Join your hosts Joey, Nathan and Kelly in the “Animanicast!” A podcast dedicated to the classic 90’s cartoon show Animaniacs! Today Nathan and Joey discuss the classic Animaniacs comic #7 from 1995! It’s a “psychologically draining” comic featuring the Warners on a mission to rescue Dr. Scratchansniff in “Total Commitment” and then they must locate Mister Director in “Mister Director, I Presume!” How will they successfully bring the two back to the studio in one piece? Find out on today’s episode!

Each week, Joey, Nathan and Kelly revisit an episode of Animaniacs in the order in which they first premiered. They discuss their favorite jokes, gags, and discuss all the cultural references they can find. Today, the Joey and Nathan discuss another  Animaniacs comic featuring two stories that might just be good enough for the actual cartoon show!

Total Commitment

The Warners break into a board meeting and end up driving Dr. Scratchansniff over the edge and into insanity! They soon realize that they need to rescue him, especially after his replacement, Dr. Bananibal Phrewtkupp puts plaid uniforms on the siblings. Will the Warners rescue Dr. S. in time, or will they be locked up in a padded cell as well?

Mister Director, I Presume

In what looks like a direct sequel to “Hearts of Twilight,” Mister Director has run off again and needs to be brought back to the studio. This time he’s moved off to France since the citizens there think he’s a genius. The Warners are sent on a mission improbable to find him and bring him back. Is this a worthy successor to Animaniacs cartoons featuring Mister Director?
