Storyline

Ensemble cast of off-the-wall Warner Brothers characters, appearing in a wide variety of roles. Wakko, Yakko, and Dot Warner, are WB Studio creations who were just too "zany" to be of any use to the studio. Pinky and the Brain are two mice bent on world domination. Rita and Runt are a cat and dog team, who get into perilous situations every episode, put always seem to find time to sing a song. Bobby, Pesto, and Squit are the Goodfeathers, part of a New York mob of pigeons, who worship Martin Scorsese. Slappy the Squirrel is a late middle-age squirrel; she starred in a series of popular cartoons in the Golden Age. Buttons is a watch-dog, charged with watching the mischievous toddler, Mindy. Chicken Boo is a giant chicken trying to integrate into human society. Flavio and Marita are two urbane hippopotami. Written by Stewart M. Clamen <clamen@cs.cmu.edu>

Adults too can laugh
10 August 2003 | by (Ottawa, Canada) – See all my reviews

I'm writing this in agreement with the people who say that Animaniacs isn't just for children. I remember vividly watching this show as a kid, and even today as a young adult. It is such an amazingly hilarious show with many sorts of jokes, and innuendos that anyone could appreciate. It also stands as a reminder of all of the great cartoons produced in the late eighties and early nineties when I was growing up.

Recently while watching this show, I heard a joke that only teenagers or adults would understand. It was in the episode where Slappy goes to get plastic surgery. Her nephew, Skippy, is somewhat curious about the procedure that his aunt is about to under take, and he decides that he'll go and visit her. At the reception desk he looks at the secretary for the plastic surgery office and remarks, "Gee lady, your skin is so tight you could bounce quarters off of it!"

I actually laughed for about five minutes solid! I think that people who consider this show childish or silly should watch it again, and really look for all of the cleverly concealed adult jokes. I think you'll find that the show is quite enjoyable, and that it is one of the greats in nineties cartoons.
