Animanicast #84: Discussing Animaniacs Episode 84


Each and every 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 hosts discuss an episode which parodies “Beauty and the Beast” entitled “Cutie and the Beast” and also features parodies of “Forest Gump” and “The First Noel!”

Cutie and the Beast/Boo Happens/Noel

Cutie and the Beast

After Dot has some trouble saying her lines, the Warners do a parody of the Disney animated film, “Beauty and the Beast.” Taz plays the part of the Beast and Dot instantly falls in love with his beastly appearance until his transformation into a prince takes attention away from how cute she is. The hosts talk about their favorite moments and songs as well as compare some of the shots to the original source material.

Boo Happens

Chicken Boo has an extraordinary life much like “Forest Gump.” In this quick parody, Chicken Boo gets to meet a few presidents and achieves stardom until some hippies discover that he’s a chicken! The hosts discuss their favorite moments and the original source material, “Forest Gump.”


Wakko has trouble writing a letter to Santa. He thinks that his named is spelled “Santla.” What follows is a song talking about Santa’s name having “no ‘L'” as well as Captain Ahab finding “no whale,” and other funny takes on this classic Christmas tune.
