The Warner brothers, Yakko and Wakko, and the Warner sister, Dot — three inseparable, irascible siblings — have a great time wreaking havoc and mayhem in the lives of everyone they meet. They've been locked away in the Warner Bros. water tower for a very long time, but they have found a way to escape. And escape they do — every day! Causing chaos and comic confusion, Yakko, Wakko, and Dot run loose in the city, turning the world into their very own personal playground in this mix of cartoon shorts, musical numbers, and comedy blackouts. They are joined by Pinky and the Brain, Slappy Squirrel and Skippy Squirrel, the Hip Hippos, and many others. In Season 1, frazzled studio psychiatrist Dr. Scratchansniff tries to make the kids less zany, the Warners help Albert Einstein formulate the theory of relativity, and the kids trek to Tibet to seek the "Wally Llama," among other adventures.

A must buy for cartoon lovers and kids.
The only reason I'm not giving this a 5 is because I'm not fond of some of the series in it these days (Rita & Runt is a big one), but so much of this series is gold. There was also a huge budget poured into it because of Spielberg's involvement, so the animation is much more fluid and active than most TV cartoons today. There's a reason this show hit it big with all ages when it first came out- simply put, because it's funny.
Love it, love it, love it! Best classic cartoon of them all, man!
Always a treat.
Steven Spielberg's shows are always amazing, he not only created the Animaniacs, but also Pinky and the Brain. And the every popular Tom and Jerry. Animaniacs is a wacy and inventive show that it enjoyable and funny to any and all ages.
