The Animaniacs


Warner Bros.' follow-up to Tiny Toon Adventures was a show even nuttier than its predecessor. The two Warner
Brothers—talky Yakko and Liverpool-accented Wakko—and their Warner Sister, Dot ("I'm cute") had supposedly been created in the 1930's, but their cartoons were too screwball for the general public. The three Warners (all black with long ears, but no
distinguishable species or breed) were locked up in the studio water tower until they escaped in the early 1990's. Yakko, Wakko, and Dot ran wild around the lot, pursued by studio CEO Thaddeus Plotz, security guard Ralph, studio psychiatrist Dr. Scratchinsniff, and Scratchinsniff's buxom assistant, Hello Nurse (Who didn't really have to do much pursuing, if you know what I mean. "Hellooooooo, Nurse!"). The show spat out pop culture references and throwaway visual gags with machine-gun rapidity, entertaining kids and adults alike. Also popular were the many songs and song parodies that graced the program.

Various shorts rotated through the program, and characters often popped up randomly in other characters' segments. Among the
supporting featurettes:

Pinky and the Brain were a duo of lab rats, one goofy (Pinky), one bent on taking over the world (Brain). The Brain's best-laid
plans always went astray, but he kept trying with Wile E. Coyote-like persistence. This was the most popular of the supporting segments, later spinning off into its own series.

Slappy Squirrel was an aged cartoon star with a cranky temperament, plenty of anvils
and dynamite, and a nephew named Skippy.

Mindy and Buttons were a baby and dog, respectively. Adorable but mischievous
Mindy perpetually escaped from some sort of baby harness, playpen, etc., forcing Buttons to rescue her, sacrificing his own body in the process.

Goodfeathers parodied mob movies with a trio of pigeons. And yes, there was a Godpigeon.

Good Idea/Bad Idea
was an informative segment starring Mr. Skullhead ("Good Idea: smell the roses. Bad Idea: grab the roses.")

Chicken Boo was a
chicken who masqueraded as a human Santa Claus, sheriff, prom date, etc., but was always discovered at episode's end.

Rita and Runt
were a singing cat and dog team searching for a good home.

Mime Time showed a hapless mime practicing his art, which inevitably led to
some painful physical consequences.

The Hip Hippos were husband and wife Flavio and Marita, always looking for the next trendy thing.

Minerva Mink was a spoiled, but beautiful model who rejected suitors before getting her comeuppance in the end.

Katie Ka-Boom
was a moody teen who exploded (literally) when things didn't go her way.

Colin told stories about his friend Randy Beaman and his family.

The show ran five seasons of original episodes, then reappeared as part of The Cat & Birdy Warneroonie Pinky Brainy Big Cartoonie Show.

Animaniacs is also playing on Nicktoons TV Weeknights at 7:00pm & 10:00pm and Sundays 4:00pm.

Re: The Animaniacs


You know, the only thing that I really laughed at in Chicken Boo was the fact that the majority of the people never believed he was a chicken til his disquise fell off. lol Actually I thought it was a stupid cartoon at first, then I realized I knew people like that. lol

My favorite was Buttons and Mindy, outside of Pinky and the Brain and the Animaniacs, that is. I didn't care much for Rita and Runt... and it took a long time for me to like Slappy Squirrel. I kept imagining using her for skeet shooting. lol

Now Minerva Minx was one hot looking cartoon, but I didn't like those cartoons.. and what of Katie? The little girl that got mad and turned into the monster. lol

Re: The Animaniacs


EVERYBODY SING!

It's time for An-i-man-i-acs
And we're zany to the max
So just sit back and relax
You'll laugh till you collapse
We're An-i-man-i-acs

Come join the Warner Brothers
And the Warner sister Dot
Just for fun we run around the Warner movie lot
They lock us in the tower whenever we get caught
But we break loose
And then vamoose
And now you know the plot

We're An-i-man-i-acs
Dot is cute and Yakko yaks
Wakko packs away the snacks
While Bill Clinton plays the sax,(this part changes with everyseason)
We're An-i-man-i-acs

Meet Pinky and the Brain,
Who want to rule the universe
Goodfeathers flock together,
Slappy wacks 'em with her purse
Buttons chases Mindy, while
Rita sings a verse
The writers flipped, we have no script,
Why bother to rehearse?

We're An-i-man-i-acs
We have pay or play contracts
We're zany to the max
There's baloney in our slacks
We're An-i-man-ee
Totally insane-y
Here's the show's namey
Pinky and the brainey(changes like nearly every show)
Pinky and the brainey
An-i-man-ee-acs!
Those are the facts!

Re: The Animaniacs


I like the song when Yako sings the countries of the world. And also the words of the dictiornairy. Other than those 2 vids i've never actually watched a whole show or a series.
