Ensemble cast of off-the-wall Warner Brothers characters, appearing in a wide variety of roles. Mainly staring the Warner Siblings Wakko, Yakko, and Dot, who were created by the WB Studios but found they were just too "zany" to be of any use to the studio. Other popular characters in the series include: Pinky and the Brain, two lab mice bent on world domination. Rita and Runt, a cat and dog team who get into perilous situations every episode but always seem to find time to sing a song, Bobby, Pesto, and Squit, the Goodfeathers, part of a New York City mob of pigeons, who take orders from The Godpigeon and worship Martin Scorsese. Slappy the Squirrel is a late middle-age squirrel. She starred in a series of popular cartoons in the Golden Age but is now retired and looking after her nephew, Skippy Squirrel. 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 ...Written by

Whenever Nate Ruegger (Skippy) had to laugh as part of the script, but couldn't laugh convincingly enough, his dad Tom Ruegger would come into the studio to tickle him. See more »
Oh, oh, my heart aches with the sorrow of a thousand scouts. No merit badge. I mourn my loss.
Say, those acting classes are really paying off.

When the show reran on Nickelodeon and Nicktoons almost all references to Warner Bros. were removed from the opening. Allowing a very unusual transition involving the Nickelodeon logo bursting and the opening cut right to the WB water tower open. See more »
Growing up in the 90s, I watched these cartoons a lot and liked them. Even when I was young I realised that the Animaniacs were a bit different from most other cartoons. Like the episode where they make fun of Barney. At that age I wasn't used to seeing such blatant parodies, so I just remember thinking: "Wow! Are they allowed to do that?"
Recently I decided to check this show out again, for nostalgia's sake. This is when I discovered that it's even better than I remembered it to be. It's not just a silly kids' show, but it's full of clever humour that people of any age can appreciate. There are some scenes that I can watch again and again without getting tired of them. Like when Yakko sings about the nations of the world. Or when they sing about the ingredients of ice cream and candy bars (scary). Brilliant! I recommend watching this show with your kids, if you have any. If you don't, watch it on your own.
