Today the hosts review "Voice Lessons" by Rob Paulsen and then review issue #17 of the classic Animaniacs comic book! Voice Lessons Joey, Nathan and Kelly share their thoughts and impressions of Rob Paulsen's upcoming autobiography, "Voice Lessons." The stories found within the pages of the book not only provide a detailed account of what Rob Paulsen did to become a voice actor, but the stories also give us all some lessons in life. Rob demonstrates the importance of optimism and strength in the face of adversity and his recent battle with cancer. The hosts all thoroughly enjoyed the book and can't wait for its release on October 8th so that they can finally read some redacted information from the last chapter! You can order Rob's book on Amazon HERE or go to Amazon.Animanicast.com Beauty or the Beast Yakko, Wakko and Dot are the guest judges for Miss Small Town America but they quickly wreak havoc and become contestants and even take over the MC's position as well. It's a satiric story that has a mixed message, should we be angry at beauty pageants, the contestants, or the male judges? There's also some questionable violence towards the contestants that has the hosts of the show feeling uncomfortable. Minervadrama Newt is back to try and catch Minerva for his master. But Newt's plans always fail. The story itself is very similar to Newt's first appearance on the show however their are some parts which seem to be aimed towards adults. (Minerva wants to be handcuffed?) No Substitute for Laughter Slappy is making food while Skippy is at school. At least she thinks he's at school. Actually Skippy is hiding from his mean substitute teacher. Slappy goes to confront the teacher and finds out that she used to teach Slappy as well!

Today its part two of their discussion with Tom Ruegger  for Animaniacs' 26th Anniversary. Tom talks about episodes 16-19  with the hosts and shares his thoughts about each one. Episodes 16-19 Today's episode features a discussion of some fantastic episodes of Animaniacs. Highlights include "Chalkboard Bungle," "Hurray for Slappy," "Roll Over Beethoven," "Pavlov's Mice," and "Meatballs or Consequences." While the episodes all feature some fantastic writing, some segments have questionable animation. The hosts talk to Tom about segments like "Chalkboard Bungle" which is a hilarious cartoon, but looks pretty bad. The discussion of episode 20 is postponed until a future date. An episode as monumental as "Hearts of Twilight" deserves to have a deep dive. Hopefully with its writer, Paul Rugg!

As soon as they land in Hawaii they are pick pocketed! Fortunately they have Bugs Bunny's credit card so Buster and Babs set off to a fancy hotel where they eat tons of food, fly in a helicopter, surf and attend a luau all while creating chaos and avoiding catastrophes.

Each week, Joey, Nathan and Kelly revisit an episode of Animaniacs, Tiny Toon Adventures, Pinky and the Brain, or Freakazoid! Today, your hosts talk about Freakazoid Episode three featuring the segments "Mo-ron," "The Sewer Rescue" and "Legends Who Lunch." Mo-ron Today's Freakazoid has several segments featuring an overweight alien named Mo-ron who has an important message for all mankind. Unfortunately, Mo-ron can't seem to remember his message. Mo-ron does remember his name however and  proudly recites, "I am Mo-ron!" continually instead of sharing any mysteries of the universe. Joey and Nathan enjoyed these Mo-ron segments quite a bit however Kelly... didn't. The Sewer Rescue Lord Bravery goes out to pick up some groceries for his wife and mother-in-law. On the way there, he hears a man stuck in the sewer. Lord Bravery sees this as his big opportunity to rescue someone even though the man stuck would rather have Superman or the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles help out. This segment is very reminiscent to Monty Python and even features a tune written by Gilbert and Sullivan. It's no wonder that it was written by Paul Rugg. The Big Question Another alien lands at the White House with an important question, "What's the name of Barbie's sister?" Luckily Freakazoid is there to answer! Unfortunately, Mo-ron is there as well. Legends Who Lunch In this short segment, obscure, elderly super heroes get together to have lunch at a deli. The group talks all about their experiences fighting off different fog-based villains. Finale Mo-ron comes back one more time to let us know what the message is! There's a huge comet hurtling towards Earth! Freakazoid saves Mo-ron's life. But can Mo-ron be killed? The hosts discuss his indestructible nature and the eventual return of Mo-ron... sort of.

Join your hosts Joey, Nathan and Kelly in the "Animanicast!" A podcast dedicated to Animaniacs! Today your hosts discuss the third episode of Pinky and the Brain featuring the segments, "Tokyo Grows," "That Smarts" and the song "Brainstem." Tokyo Grows The Brain realizes that if he and Pinky make themselves as large as the mythical creature Gollyzilla, they could then create a fake fight for all of Tokyo to see. Then the Brain could become ruler! Unfortunately the real Gollyzilla emerges from the depths and puts an end to that plan. This cartoon ends up becoming the biggest cartoon Pinky and the Brain ever starred in when even Tokyo Grows! That Smarts The Brain calculates that the reason they never succeed at taking over the world is because Pinky is an idiot. He straps Pinky into his latest invention and before you can say, "Narf!" Pinky is a genius! Unfortunately he's even smarter than the Brain and he's able to find all the flaws in Brain's plans. The Brain realizes that one of the two must be stupid in order for then to be successful, but who should be the dumb one? Brain Stem The Brain teaches the kids at home all about the parts of the Brain. Except for the "Brain Stem" which Pinky takes care of with lots of enthusiasm. Join the Party!

Each week, Joey, Nathan and Kelly revisit an episode of Animaniacs, Tiny Toon Adventures, Pinky and the Brain, or Freakazoid! Today, your hosts talk about another of Kelly's favorite episodes of Tiny Toon Adventures entitled "Tiny Toons Music Television."  The three talk about each segment in today's episode and then give the episode a water tower rating! Tiny Toons Music Television Throughout today's episode Buster and Babs introduce each segment as the resident VJs of Tiny Toons Music Television. They show us a wall of phones, we meet Julie Bruin, and we get to see the one and only Fuddonna! Istanbul (Not Constantinople) In the first segment of Tiny Toons Music Television, Plucky is sent on a mission to rescue a jade duck statue that looks a lot like Plucky himself. He sets out with Hamton to steal the statue back from Montana Max and his goons only to be chased back through the desert on camels. Unfortunately Plucky breaks the statue as soon as he gets his reward (or his reward gets him.) This video is sung by the band They Might Be Giants but they weren't the first ones to sing it! The hosts discuss their favorite moments in the cartoon and in this song. Particle Man Plucky is Particle Man and he is in the wresting ring going up against Triangle Man, Universe Man and even the Crusher when he changes outfits from Particle Man to Person Man. Plucky tries to face off against the three foes but he doesn't stand a chance. This second song from They Might Be Giants features some great action and animation. The hosts reflect on this cartoon and on their shared love of They Might Be Giants. Respect Babs is singing to Aretha Franklin's classic hit "Respect" in a library, a court room, a funeral and an operating room! The ones she bothers however get back at her so that they can be respected. This cartoon has lots of writers and animators in the background! Plus a cameo from Batman (sorta.) Money (That's What I Want) Montana Max sings about money and how much he wants it. In the end though, he has nothing and Joey actually feels sorry for him. This video has lots of energy, great animation and Ralph the Guard? Top Secret Apprentice In this instrumental salute to "The Sorcerer's Apprentice," Bugs Bunny is working on the new computer animation wing of ACME Looniversity. While he's away, Buster jumps onto the controls but quickly falls asleep. Buster dreams of flying through space, swimming through the ocean, flying on flies and going into the past to the age of dinosaurs. Buster's imagination almost gets out of hand!
