Storyline

In the opening musical number, "The Tiger Prince", the wacky Warner siblings present their own version of a song from "The Lion King." Meanwhile, Yakko attempts to sing "All the Words in the English Language". The Warners parody the popular childrenÂ's book "The Cat in the Hat" in "The Kid in the Lid". Finally, Slappy Squirrel proves thereÂ's "A Method to Her Madness". Slappy attends a "Method" acting class with Skippy. After being disgusted by their whiny ways and incoherent mumbling, she gives the actors some lessons of her own. Written by Anonymous

Wacky parodies
21 August 2018 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Love animation to bits. It was a big part of my life as a child, especially Disney, Looney Tunes, Hanna Barbera and Tom and Jerry (with tastes broadening further getting older with Pixar, Studio Ghibli and some of the more mature animations out there), and still love it to this day as a young adult whether it's film, television or cartoons. Actually appreciate it even more now, with more knowledge of the different animation styles, directors, studios and what work went into them.

'Animaniacs' has always been one of my favourites. From an early age, it always stood out as one of the most colourful, unique, funniest and cleverest shows, animated and otherwise, ever made. It is not to be dismissed as a show just for children. There is plenty for children to enjoy, any child who loves great animation, humour to laugh at and unique characters will be in heaven. There is more than plenty for adults too, especially the hugely clever in-jokes/poking fun that is likely to be better understood by older viewers with more familiarity for what is being referenced and poked fun at.

This is another wonderful episode in a show, not quite one of my favourites but nearly up there, where even the weakest episodes were not failures and one where there were many classics.

Here, the animation is very well done, with vibrant colouring, crisp beautiful backgrounds and convincing movements for the characters. The music is not only catchy it is actually memorable as well, with an instantly hummable main theme.

The scripts and humour are witty and hilarious with clever references and inside jokes. As are the situations no matter how silly they are the characters get into. "The Kid in the Lid" and "Method to Her Madness" are particularly successful. This all springs from a great concept, some shows have a great concept but don't live up to it.

'Animaniacs' was always one of the finest examples of execution of a great concept doing that and superbly, with the story lines here being funny and endearing. The characters are immensely likable with unique personalities, with no exception, the Warners are so endearing and Slappy a show stealer.

Have no qualms with the uniformly terrific voice acting from some of the most talented voice actors from that period.

While not a favourite, still a wonderfully made and enormously entertaining episode. 10/10 Bethany Cox
