Animal House was set in 1962; therefore, the 25th reunion would have taken place in 1987. Hoover says he has season tickets to the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens did not exist in 1987; the team moved from Cleveland in 1996. See more »

Let them tell you about some friends they know...

What I mainly find interesting about these "making of" mini-documentaries is seeing the cast members all these years later. But even beyond that, "The Yearbook: An 'Animal House' Reunion" is still quite entertaining, as most of the cast and crew put in their two cents about the production. One of the most impressive parts was footage shot by a Eugene, Oregon, TV station during production.

Absent from this are the late John Belushi, Doug Kenny and Cesare Danova - and John Vernon has since passed on - while the still alive Donald Sutherland, James Daughton, Tom Hulce and Martha Smith also don't appear. But the rest of the cast and crew do a pretty good job explaining what all happened on the set; it all sounded really fun! So, it's a must-see for any "Animal House" fan. I recommend it.

I wonder if Babs and Mandy are still as hot as they were in the movie...especially if we see them doing some of what they did in the movie!
