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

In a "Animaniacs" tribute by Doug Walker (The Nostalgia Critic), Walker, who had done a video listing 11 of the "naughtiest" moments in the show, was curious as to how the writers were able to get so many "naughty" jokes past the censors (such as the famed fingerprints" joke). The consensus from writers Tom Ruegger, Sheri Stoner, Paul Rugg and John P. McCann was essentially "We have no idea." See more »
I used to love Animaniacs when I was younger. The animation, voice work, and music are all great. The humor is very funny in a smart way, it isn't a stupid show like many other kids shows that are released today. There are plenty of adult jokes that will entertain the adults who are watching the show with their kids.
The characters in this show are all very unique and make the show worth watching. Two very famous characters, Pinky and the Brain, had their own spin off show after-wards. Pinky and the Brain are two lab rats who are always trying to take over the world.
This was a great show, it's a shame that many adults thought it was only for kids, because there really were plenty of jokes for the adults.
If you ever get to see this show, watch it all the way to the end. It is very funny.
