Animanicast #85: Discussing Animaniacs Episode 85


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 “Pocahontas” entitled “Jokahontas.” The hosts also review a press packet which was used to help promote the show to TV stations.

Jokahontas/Boids on the Hood/Mighty Wakko at the Bat

The Animaniacs take on Disney, The GoodFeathers take on Ralph, and Wakko takes on baseball. Plus, some bonus material!  Joey Nathan and Kelly have a great time discussing this week’s episode.

Animaniacs TV Station Press Packet

Thanks to our listener Mike Westfall, Joey managed to get his hands on some of the original material used to convince networks to air syndicated episodes of the Animaniacs. The hosts go through key sections including one dedicated to Steven Spielberg! 

Animani-rats? Cold Open

Animaniacs characters star in this farce of The Rugrats theme song.  The hosts discuss all the appearances, and who each one represents. This segment of course leads to a discussion on the Rugrats reboot as well.


This segment is an obvious parody of pocahontas, but quickly expands to parody the disney heroine troupe and also on Mel Gibson in general.  Joey Nathan and Kelly discuss their favorite moments and how they think it compares to last week’s disney parody, “Cutie and the Beast.”

Boids on the Hood

Thaddeus Plotz has offended the wrong Pigeons, so the GoodFeathers take it upon themselves to attack his car in the way only pigeons know how to do.  Ralph the Guard only makes it worse and ends up destroying the car trying to chase the GoodFeathers away.

Mighty Wakko at the Bat

In this adaptation of Casey at the Bat, we get the whole Animaniacs cast trying to win a baseball game.  It all comes down to little Wakko Warner to see if he can get the runs needed to win. Nathan, Kelly and Joey discuss their favorite moments from this segment.

Gag Credits

Joey reads off the gag credits from the last ten episodes.  As if that wasn’t enough, Nathan participates by saying something after each gag credit.
