Eggs, oceans and telephones
10 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 episode is not up there admittedly with my favourites, with some of the writing in "Call Waiting" not having the sharpness and wildness of particularly "With Three You Get Eggroll" and some characters being stronger than others. For me it is still a very good episode.

In all three segments 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, particularly in the second half which is a riot and the inspired numerous cameos/caricatures. As are the situations no matter how silly they are the characters get into. 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 here being a lot of fun and easy to like. The characters are immensely likable with unique personalities, with no exception. The Goodfeathers are the show stealers here.

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

Overall, very enjoyable. 8/10 Bethany Cox
