Over the past couple months I watched the entirety of Animaniacs on Netflix. The show has a pretty strong cult following online, and it's easy to see why; between the tongue-in-cheek humor, (usually) strong animation, fully orchestrated music accompaniment and throwback to old-school Warner Bros. cartoons, Animaniacs had a bit of something for everyone. Which means that not every segment was a hit either. This top ten will be all about the different character segments of the show, ranked from my least-favorite to favorite!.. (more)

As per usual there's Joe (Ninsage) and Stephen (DrFinkelstein), but unlike the last episode, there's plenty of guests this time! Stephen drove all the way to Joe's corner of the U.S. of A. in order to record this latest episode and with him he brought Erika (EponaEatsCarrots). Joe's Wife, Amy, makes four and the quintuple is rounded out by Negative World's own Lou (TheOldManFromZelda).
Ask any Dragon Quest fan--one of the most appealing aspects of the series is its consistency. Elements like the setting, general town-to-town story progression, the art and the music are all major aspects of the series that have become familiar throughout its lifetime.
