An excerpt from Stewart M. Clamen about the show.
“Ensemble cast of off-the-wall Warner Brothers characters, appearing in a wide variety of roles. Wakko, Yakko, and Dot Warner, are WB Studio creations who were just too “zany” to be of any use to the studio. Pinky and the Brain are two mice bent on world domination. Rita and Runt are a cat and dog team, who get into perilous situations every episode, put always seem to find time to sing a song. Bobby, Pesto, and Squit are the Goodfeathers, part of a New York mob of pigeons, who worship Martin Scorsese. Slappy the Squirrel is a late middle-age squirrel; she starred in a series of popular cartoons in the Golden Age. 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 hippopotami.”
I just have to reblog this so more people will realize the wonders of Animaniacs, and hopefully you will go out of your way to download and spread the word of WBKid’s 90’s animation.
There has yet to be a show with writing and animation that can go head to head with these old shows for more than a round , before getting utterly devastated by these amazing works.
