Did You Know?

Goofs

To preserve the song's meter, Wakko accents some of the city and state names on the wrong syllable. Most notable is the South Dakotan capital Pierre, which Wakko speaks in the French way, rhyming with "chair," even though South Dakotans rhyme it with "cheer." See more »

American history with 'Animaniacs'
11 June 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 where even the weakest episodes were seldom less than decent. Not one of my favourites of the show, with it being at its weakest in the still quite amusing but somewhat corny "Davey Omelette".

In all the stories, 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, the jokes and references were easy to recognise and get, which made it funnier, and came over as affectionate and clever. "Wakko's America" is funny, even with the goof with naming an irrelevant 51st state.

'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. My favourite being "Four Score and Seven Migraines Ago", and anybody or anything that makes a candle flame interesting and a character of its own is worthy of credit. The characters are immensely likable with unique personalities, with no exception. The Warners are as endearing as ever, especially Wakko. Abraham Lincoln is great fun.

Characters that are brilliantly voiced by the likes of Rob Paulsen, Tress MacNeille, Jess Harnell and Frank Welker.

Overall, excellent. 9/10 Bethany Cox
