One of the best animaniacs bits ever.
1 December 2013 | by (In a Chair in my room) – See all my reviews

This is a review for the 2 shorts "Hot, Bothered, and Bedeviled." and "Moon over Minerva." because I have lots to say about both episodes.

First off, Hot, Bothered, and Bedeviled should be required viewing in Sunday school classes. It's that good. It was also the short that really got me into Animaniacs (Including Chalkboard Bungle and Baloney & kids) Also, it was the first Animaniacs short that my mom saw, and she loved it.

In Hot, Bothered, and Bedeviled, The Warner bros. and the Warner sister, in an attempt to burrow all the way to six flags overflushing, End up burrowing into Hell (Or hades, Technically they couldn't call it Hell in the cartoon) And Satan decides to torment them, Quoting "And now prepare to suffer indescribable torment." to which Yakko replies "Another Bob Hope special?" However, Satan soon learns that he is on the business end of torment.

Second, There's the Minerva Mink Bit, Moon over Minerva. I don't know whether to say this cartoon makes me mad because it speaks a truth I know all too well, Or to say I love it because it speaks a truth I know all too well - A majority of beautiful women are as shallow as the shallow end of a kiddie pool.

Minerva Mink writes in her diary that she is lonely and wishes for her dream hunk of a man to come along and court her. Of course, Wilfred B. Wolf is the only other man in these cartoons, and he's a nerdy-looking, high-pitched unattractive wolf, as his name implies. When he tries to get Minerva to come with him, She flat out refuses because she isn't attracted to him. But what neither of them realizes is that Wilfred is a werewolf, and that night will be a full moon, and that werewolves in the world of animaniacs go from unattractive losers to muscle-packed hunks in the full moon, Which melts Minerva into a puddle of goo.

I recommend you watch this episode when it airs. for me, it's a 10/10.
