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

The Goodfeathers, a satire of the Warner Brothers film Goodfellas (1990) were made to reflect the personalities of the film's main stars. Bobby the blue pigeon is meant to be Robert De Niro, Pesto the purple pigeon is meant to be Joe Pesci, and Squit the gray pigeon is meant to be Ray Liotta. in addition, The God Pigeon is meant to be Marlo Brando from The Godfather (1972).

When I was a kid, this was my favorite show. I still love the show for its great music and hilarious episodes, but I don't admit it anymore. It's too bad that this is seen as a childish cartoon, because a lot of the jokes are for adults too. Not just the inside-jokes about Hollywood and Bill Clinton, but there were also jokes such as this one (from the Thanksgiving episode):
Yakko is protecting his turkey friend from a hunter who wants to make the turkey into Thanksgiving dinner. The hunter insists, "Give me the bird!" Yakko counters with, "We would, but the FOX censors won't allow it."
The music is great, the show is hilarious, the animation is outstanding. Some of the minor characters are really dumb though, (Minerva Mink, that nameless blue baby bird, etc.) but most of them are funny. It's a real shame that very few adults would sit down and watch this show.
