Trivia

And the end of the credits, a message appears on screen that reads: "Reading small print can lead to eye strain. Visit your local optometrist regularly. And for that matter, don't forget to go to the dentist at least every six months. If not, you might get cavities or gingivitis or some nasty gum disease. As for me, I've got a toothache right now that's killing me, so don't make the mistake I did. See a dentist! (And try using some mouth wash now & then, okay?) And remember to brush after every meal, and floss once a day. This has been ANIMANIACS episode #84. Upcoming are episodes #85, #86, #87, #88, #89. And don't forget about show #90. Another good show you can look forward to is show #91! If you'd like even more episodes of ANIMANIACS don't forget to write Jamie Kellner, c/o KIDS' WB and say "we want more ANIMANIACS." His phone # is 555-1012." See more »

Cute and enormously entertaining, and not beastly
31 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 a brilliant episode in a show where even the weakest episodes were not failures and one where there were many classics. Not quite one of my favourites though.

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 'Beauty and the Beast' parody is especially ingenious. 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, Wakko is especially delightful.

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

In summary, brilliant. 10/10 Bethany Cox
