Animanicast: Discussing Animaniacs Comic Issue #10 “A Comic Book is Born”

by The Animanicast

It’s time for the Animanicast! Here’s a discussion of Animaniacs Comic Issue #10 with “A Comic Book is Born,” and “The Ice Cream Man Cometh”

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 Animaniacs Comic Issue #10. Dr. Scratchansniff teaches the Warners how “A Comic Book is Born” and later the Warner siblings take on a villainous purveyor of ice cream in “The Ice Cream Man Cometh.”

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, Joey and Nathan discuss another issue of the classic “Animaniacs” comic series. Will the two actually learn some things from reading this comic?

Special Announcement!

We will be interviewing voice actors Maurice LaMarche, John Mariano, Chick Venerra, and Animaniacs creator Tom Ruegger for a Goodfeathers reunion! Have a question to ask? Make sure to send it to us via email, Facebook, Twitter, or Discord ASAP!

A Comic Book is Born

Dr. Scratchansniff is interrupted by the Warners when he wants to read his favorite comic book. It turns out that the siblings have no idea what a comic book is or how it is made. Dr. S takes the trio through the whole process from the comic’s inception to when it’s finally published. It’s a very informative and funny segment!

The Ice Cream Man Cometh

An ice cream man is overcharging kids for their ice cream outside of the Warner Bros. lot so Yakko, Wakko, and Dot decide to make things right by tormenting this small business owner. Eventually they all go into the ice cream truck which is certainly “bigger on the inside.” The trio eventually get the ice cream man arrested. But did the punishment fit the crime? Joey and Nathan discuss it all in this silly story.
