The best. Period.
Animaniacs is without a doubt one of the best cartoons ever. Amazingly well-written, unbelievably funny for all ages, able to get away with possibly more than any other kid's show, Animaniacs redefined Warner Bros. for nearly a decade. The voice talent is wonderful. (Rob Paulsen of course being a fan fave as Yakko, Pinky, Scratchansniff and countless others) Jess, Tress, Frank Welker, Bernadette Peters and so many others helped breathe life into some of the funniest characters on television. The animation wanes over the course of five years, but the humor never gets old. The songs are some of the cleverest music ever, period. From "Yakko's World" to "Wakko's America" to "The Presidents" to the iconic theme song, Richard Stone's music team made learning fun for so many children, which is why they are so fondly remembered today. (Paulsen still has "Yakko's World" memorized, and sings it at all of his public appearances.) For five years, and now thanks to DV Ds
and the Net, far longer, Animaniacs will always be remembered as a show that truly broke ground....mostly from the Warners jumping on it and going "Boingy! Boingy!"
