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

The Animaniacs theme is in part a satire of "This Is It", the theme song from The Bugs Bunny Show (1960). For example, Bugs and company sing "No more nursing, rehearsing a part. We know every part by heart." The Animaniacs sing, "The writer's flipped. We have no script. Why bother to rehearse?" See more »
Skippy. You shoulda been asleep hours ago.
I know, Aunt Slappy, but I can't sleep. I keep hearing Santa's sleigh.
Ehhhh, that's just the LAPD choppers.

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 »
I used to love Animaniacs when I was younger. The animation, voice work, and music are all great. The humor is very funny in a smart way, it isn't a stupid show like many other kids shows that are released today. There are plenty of adult jokes that will entertain the adults who are watching the show with their kids.
The characters in this show are all very unique and make the show worth watching. Two very famous characters, Pinky and the Brain, had their own spin off show after-wards. Pinky and the Brain are two lab rats who are always trying to take over the world.
This was a great show, it's a shame that many adults thought it was only for kids, because there really were plenty of jokes for the adults.
If you ever get to see this show, watch it all the way to the end. It is very funny.
