According to Nerdist, the cast of Animaniacs are reuniting for a live tour in the near future. While the details of the tour are still being worked out (which cities to hit and when to go there, ya know, pretty much everything) it has been said that tour will feature classic, new and updated songs accompanied by an 87-piece orchestra. I’m all for updates as the Nations of the World song is a little outdated now… Jess Harnell, who voiced Wakko, said the show will be very interactive and that “It’ll be like hanging out with us in your living room.” which is more than enough to get my butt in the seat. So, until we know the details of the tour, here are a collection of Animaniac songs to hold us over. Enjoy!
Childhood might be ruined but this sure as shit gives me hope for if I ever have to watch cartoons with kids. This is a great little video by Ranker pointing out some jokes made in cartoons that may have been a little over our heads when we first saw them. Some of them are pretty clever and that is probably the reason the sensors never caught them. So with that, enjoy the video!
This is a show I didn’t even realize existed? I know what you’re gonna say….”Hey dumb-ass, you never heard of Pinky & The Brain?” Of course I’ve heard of Pinky & The Brain, that show was brilliant. But this article is about Pinky, Elmrya & The Brain…which was a real show. Pinky & The Brain started as the genetically enhanced Acme lab mice in Steve Spielberg’s Animaniacs, a show that spawned many spin-off’s. The duo became so popular with their comedic back and forth (Pinky: “Gee, Brain, what do you want to do tonight?” The Brain: “The same thing we do every night, Pinky—try to take over the world!”) that they had a half-hour all to themselves in 1995. They lasted 4 seasons and 65 episodes. Sadly the Brain never succeeded in taking over the world…he came close though. For some strange reason the show was “retooled” in 1998 as Steven Spielberg Presents Pinky, Elmyra & the Brain (originally titled Pinky & the Brain Meets Elmyra, The Continuing Adventures of Pinky & the Brain, and …
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh buddy! This takes me back! This a great Animanics cartoon. It’s Yakko singing all the countries of the world. It’s pretty impressive anyway you look at it. Robert Paulsen (the voice of Yakko) must have taken weeks to get this song down. Any of you who are teachers out there, maybe show this to your class and help them learn all the world’s countries…or just wait till the Chinese take over and every country will be simply known as China. USA! USA! Enjoy!
