After a few seasons the line "Bill Clinton plays the sax" was removed from the opening credits. It was briefly replaced with the line "We have wisecracks by the stacks", but it soon gave way to "We pay tons of income tax". In some cases "We have baloney in our slacks" was also used. See more »

5 December 2004 | by (Belfast, N.Ireland) – See all my reviews

Animaniacs was THE cartoon of the 90s!! It was ace. The writing and animation were brilliant, and the voice acting was in a league of it's own.

Unlike Warner Brother's contemporaries, Tiny Toons and Taz-mania (which I also loved), Animaniacs would always show at least three different franchises an episode, meaning there was always something for everyone. The humour was very sophisticated for a cartoon, and as a result it could entertain kids and adults alike.

The main franchise revolved around the Warner Brothers and their sister (The Warner Siblings, then), Yakko, Wakko, and Dot. Locked in the studio water tower for 60 years for being too crazy, they break out and proceed to drive just about everyone they meet around the bend. It was great. However, if they didn't appeal (as if) or you fancied a change, there were many other equally wonderful characters with their own adventures, including Slappy the Squirrel, Rita and Runt, Buttons and Mindy and Pinky and the Brain (who got their own spin off), to name but a few.

If, for some reason you disagree, or managed to survive the 90s without ever seeing an episode, I suggest you seek this show out! I guarantee you you won't regret it. It is, to quote the show, 'Faboo!!'
