Thank you, Slappy Squirrel
26 March 2014 | by (In a Chair in my room) – See all my reviews

To say that "Guardin' the Garden" truly outshines the Warner siblings short on this episode is sorely insufficient. Good old Slappy Squirrel gives Satan a good whipping and we the viewers have no choice but to laugh about it.

In Guardin' the Garden, Slappy Squirrel is given the task by God to guard the tree of the fruit of knowledge of good & evil from the Serpent, who tries many times to tempt Adam & Eve with it in order to spoil mankind's relationship with God. However, Since Slappy Squirrel is addicted to making bad guys suffer in pain, The serpent gets beaten, Smashed, Squashed, and blown up within an inch of his life, making this episode one of the most satisfying ones to watch, particularly if you're a Christian.

Then there's "Plane Pals" with your favorite siblings, Yakko, Wakko, And Dot. In this short, A disgruntled and rather selfish man is forced in economy class for his flight, angering him, and causing him to abuse the airport workers & Hello nurse as the Stewardess. But he meets his match in the Warners, Who are on their first ever flight. They drive him even more insane with gags and stunts that translate into laughter for anyone who watches.

This is one of the best animaniacs episodes ever made. Nothing but fun shorts and fun characters. The animaniacs team at it's best.
