Each week, Joey, Nathan and Kelly revisit an episode of Animaniacs in the order in which they first premiered. Today your hosts discuss part one of Wakko’s Wish! With so many songs, jokes and character cameos, there’s too much for just one Animanicast episode!

Wakko’s Wish Part One

The Warners are orphans in the town of Warnerstock, a town that has been taxed to the extreme by the evil King Salazar. To make things worse, Dot needs an operation and the siblings have no money! Luckily, Wakko calls upon the Wishing Star for some help. The star lands far away from the village and so the Warners must set out to touch the Wishing Star. Before they leave however, they tell the townsfolk, and a mad rush to be the first to touch the Wishing Star ensues. Unfortunately the evil King Salazar finds out as well and seeks to eliminate the Warners before they get to the star.

There’s lots of jokes, songs and character cameos to cover in this movie. So many, in fact,  that this podcast episode will only cover the first half of the movie!
