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.
