Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Produced by Steven Spielberg, Animaniacs was a revival of an old show concept: a collection of cartoon shorts in a half-hour kids' show. Rather than recycling or remaking old theatrical shorts, Animaniacs relied on original stories featuring original characters (though it did indulge in a bit of self-referential cliché-riding at times). This approach was unique in the 1990s, since goofball/slapstick-type shows (think Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies) were being systematically driven out by Moral Guardians who thought that slapstick was too violent for children's TV (something that was frequently a target of the show's humor).Unlike other Saturday Morning Cartoons, Animaniacs didn't air on Nickelodeon or Cartoon Network (at least not initially; syndication reruns have appeared on both channels). It originally aired on Fox Kids (on the Fox television network), and later Kids' WB!, both of which were programming blocks on broadcast network stations, making Animaniacs a godsend to kids without cable. On January 7, 2013, the show began airing on The Hub. The whole series is now available on DVD, and spent 18 months on Netflix, from April 2016 to October 2017.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Shorts were generally self-contained, though they frequently crossed over with each other without much warning. Each had a cast and premise of their own:

Wrong Parachute Gag: In a Boot Camp Episode, while plummeting towards the ground with their Drill Sergeant, the Warners tell him that they took the liberty of washing the sheets he stores in his backpack. He pulls the cord and a duck headed flotation device comes out.

Reminder of Impossibility: Provides the page quote. In one Slappy episode, Slappy and Skippy are dealing with a dog named Stinkbomb. After climbing their tree, Stinkbomb follows them up. Leave Slappy to bring up one important fact that Stinkbomb forgot about. Dogs can't climb trees. One instance of Buttons protecting Mindy has him following her up a tree. After she tells him that dogs can't actually climb, he immediately falls.

Adam Westing: Adam West voiced the Caped Crusader in the "Boo Wonder" sketch. It has to be noted that DC Comics has belonged to Warner Bros. since 1967, which is why there was minimum Writing Around Trademarks in the entire sketch.note Except for the use of a substitute for The Joker, almost everything else is lifted directly off Batman itself

No Celebrities Were Harmed: ...at least not by name. Several notable public figures of the period were hilariously parodied in the show with such gems as Codger Eggbert and Lean Hisskill, as well as the Iraqi dictator Sodarn Hinsane. The "Used Cow Salesman" in 'The Warners and the Beanstalk' is basically Pat Buttram. The clown in "Clown and Out" is pretty much Jerry Lewis in whiteface and a silly outfit.

Cannot Tell a Joke: One time, okay see, one time there was a character in Animaniacs who was a small boy who told stories about stuff that had happened to his friend Randy Beaman and the stories were always told in a near-monotone and in one long run-on sentence and at the end he'd recite the punchline in the same way and you wouldn't be sure if he'd reached it or not. Okay, bye.

Right Behind Me: In one episode the Warners proceeded to trash talk the people working on the show note including their own voice actors as the credits rolled, not realizing that their microphone was still on. Slappy subverts this in the very first short featuring her, whipping out a club to hit the eavesdropping Doug the Dog without even looking at him.

Reality Ensues: In the Slappy Squirrel short "Little Old Slappy from Pasadena", Slappy Squirrel races through town in her car at great speed and causes indirect harm to passersby. At the end of the short, she returns home only to be surrounded by police ready to turn her in for exceeding the speed limit and being a public nuisance. Happens in other shorts, such as "Smell Ya' Later" and "Turkey Jerky," where the villain finds themselves suspended in mid-air somehow, only for the other characters to point out the impossibility and causing them to plummet to the ground. In "Garage Sale Of The Century", Papa Bear is obviously scamming his neighbors and others out of their money by overcharging for crappy and broken items, and refusing to give them refunds. They all end up reporting Papa Bear to the police in order to get their money back.

Happened with one of the songs on the first soundtrack album. In the animated version, the song "Be Careful What You Eat," about the complex chemicals that go into most prepackaged foods, the song used Black Comedy at the end to hint at what could happen if you eat too much processed food. The soundtrack version threw out that last verse for something much more ordinary and Anvilicious.

There's an arguable in-universe one in "The Panama Canal" (sung to the tune of "The Erie Canal.") Yakko is a ship captain crossing from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and he mentions that his ship is named "Hal" (to rhyme with "Canal," of course). After the ship makes it safely through the canal, the sailors shout "Thank you, Hal!" - and Yakko takes the credit, implying that "Hal" is his name. So either Yakko believes that he and his ship are somehow psychically connected, or he is playing a character named Hal in-universe and named the ship after himself.

Captain Ersatz
 Animaniacs / int_25b5600
comment
Captain Ersatz/Expy: The Warners are based heavily on the Marx Brothers, with bits and pieces from other characters: Dot shows roots from Gilda Radner, and Wakko shows influences from Ringo Starr. Slappy's jerkass behavior in her old cartoons (which she gleefully indulges any time she meets her old nemeses) gives her an uncanny resemblance to Screwy Squirrel. She also appears to have Barbra Streisand's interpretation of Fanny Brice in her ancestry. The Brain bears some pretty clear similarities to Orson Welles, most notably the voice, which actor Maurice LaMarche describes as "65% Orson Welles, 35% Vincent Price". In "One Flew Over the Cuckoo Clock", there are basically elderly versions of Tom and Jerry, Woody Woodpecker, Wally Walrus, Mighty Mouse, Goofy, Minnie Mouse and Donald Duck at the retirement home Slappy is staying at. The stork in "Pitter Patter of Little Feet" has the same voice and mannerisms as Concord Condor.

Rude Hero, Nice Sidekick: The show uses this trope a lot: The Brain is a condescending Insufferable Genius, while Pinky is a Minion with an F in Evil who still likes and admires Brain, no matter how much abuse he gets from him. They are still this in their own show, Pinky and the Brain. Slappy Squirrel is a cranky old lady. Her sidekick in all her segments is her nephew, the cheerful and adorable Skippy. Rita is an arrogant and sarcastic cat who is always accompanied by dimwitted Big Friendly Dog Runt.

Mythology Gag
 Animaniacs / int_26ac510e
comment
Mythology Gag: Or more of a coincidence that was taken advantage of. Many animated shows only run for 65 episodes, a number deemed large enough for syndication. Animaniacs was originally to be no different, and it turned out that the fictional backstory of the Warner siblings had already established their debut as being around 1929, 65 years prior to the finale's broadcast. The episode thus played up the number, revolving entirely around a "65th Anniversary Special" tribute to the Warners.

Also, in the background of the song "The Ballad of Magellan" when they reach Argentina, there's a sign that says: "Coming soon: Evita". In the Quake Song when Buttons is saving Mindy from a collapsing wall; Wakko and Dot can be seen behind it with crowbars and hammers.

Spiritual Successor
 Animaniacs / int_27a42ebc
comment
Spiritual Successor: To Tiny Toon Adventures, which was also produced by Amblin Entertainment. More to the point, just as Tiny Toon Adventures was a reimagining of Looney Tunes, Animaniacs was something of a Deconstruction of Tex Avery's cartoons. All things considered, it was less a successor to Looney Tunes as much as it was a straight-up continuation: short cartoons with lots of slapstick, pop culture references and politically incorrect humor with a wide cast of funny cartoon animals. One could argue that Steven Spielberg used his money and power to recreate the working environment which allowed for those kinds of cartoons to be made the same way Michael Jackson used Neverland Ranch to live the childhood he never had. It was produced about twenty years after another ostensibly-for-kids-actually-for-all-ages, vaudeville-inspired variety show known as The Muppet Show.

Awesome, but Impractical: Subverted by "Wakko's Gizmo," which seems pretty pointless at first but turns out to be successful in helping Wakko order a pizza. Then double-subverted when it's revealed that ordering the pizza was just another step in the process, and that the real objective of Wakko's machine is to cause an action figure to sit on a whoopee cushion, making a farting noise and causing Wakko to laugh hysterically.

Ambiguously Jewish
 Animaniacs / int_2be15316
comment
Ambiguously Jewish: Yakko, who is obviously modeled on Groucho Marx, especially the voice and the eyebrows. And, of course, Yakov is the Yiddish version of Jacob, which was the real first name of studio co-founder Jack Warner. Interestingly, Yakko's sister Dot came off as only very vaguely Jewish (she was reportedly inspired by the Jewish actress Fanny Brice), while little brother Wakko had no identifiably Jewish traits at all (his voice actor based the middle Warner's voice on a younger version of Ringo Starr). However, the cartoons "'Twas the Day Before Christmas," "Little Drummer Warners" and "Noel" reveal that the kids celebrate Christmas. Slappy Squirrel, with her New York accent, use of Yiddish as a Second Language, and occasional jokes about menorahs and bat mitzvahs – though like the Warners, she and Skippy also celebrate Christmas. Meanwhile, her archenemy Walter Wolf is a full-blown Yiddish-accented Alter Kocker.

Truncated Theme Tune
 Animaniacs / int_2c3ff5e8
comment
Truncated Theme Tune: When the show aired on Nickelodeon and Nicktoons, a shortened intro was created that just consisted of these lyrics: "It's time for Animaniacs / And we're zany to the max, / So just sit back and relax, / You'll laugh 'til you collapse! / We're Animaney, / Totally insaney, / Nick-a-laney, / Animaniacs, those are the facts!" Instead of the regular clips they were set to, Nickelodeon set the lyrics to different clips making the lip-syncing off key To keep the shortened intro on the same key, they pitched up the first half of the intro. But because they didn't re-record the intro, the Warners' voices were pitched up and sound effects like Dr. Scratchansniff's laughter are still heard confusing viewers (who took notice) who didn't see the show on Kids' WB!, Fox Kids or Cartoon Network.

Yet Another Christmas Carol: Starring Mr. Plotz in the Scrooge role, Ralph the Guard as Bob Cratchit with his son Ralph Jr. in the Tiny Tim role, Slappy as Jacob Marley and the Warner siblings as the three ghosts. The main difference from the original A Christmas Carol is that rather than having the Tiny Tim character die, Ralph Jr. vows revenge on Plotz for firing his dad and in the hypothetical future grows up to take over the Warner Bros. studio, with Plotz working as the security guard. Ralph Jr. fires Plotz in a similarly callous manner to the way Plotz fired his dad.

comment
I Am Not Shazam: The three main characters are actually called "the Warner Brothers (and the Warner Sister"), not "Animaniacs." A first-time viewer might be a little confused because the opening theme song has them repeatedly shouting "We're Animaniacs!" However, this is really just a descriptive term (kind of like a bunch of people shouting "We're human beings!") and applies to all the show's characters, not just the Warners. There's an arguable in-universe one in "The Panama Canal" (sung to the tune of "The Erie Canal.") Yakko is a ship captain crossing from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and he mentions that his ship is named "Hal" (to rhyme with "Canal," of course). After the ship makes it safely through the canal, the sailors shout "Thank you, Hal!" - and Yakko takes the credit, implying that "Hal" is his name.

Self-Fulfilling Prophecy: In the episode "Taming of the Screwy," Mr. Plotz is holding a banquet for foreign investors, and said investors want to meet all of the workers at the Warner Bros. studio, including Yakko, Wakko, and Dot. Under his orders, Dr. Scratchansniff manages to convince the Warners to keep their lunacy under control so they can attend the banquet... only for Mr. Plotz to force them out of the banquet after they meet the investors regardless because he doesn't trust them not to screw things up. Snubbed and insulted, the Warners return to the banquet and ruin it in their usual Karmic Trickster fashion. In a nutshell, if Mr. Plotz had just let them stay since they were behaving, the entire thing would have gone off without a hitch.

comment
Out of Focus: Most of the characters got reduced screentime in favor of more Warners and Slappy cartoons in the Kids WB era seasons. They tried fixing this in season 4, only to go back to focusing on the Warners and Slappy in season 5. Pinky and the Brain have gotten their own show at this point. In Rita and Runt's case, it was getting expensive to fly Rita's voice actress to the studio.

Poorly Disguised Pilot: The episode "Spell-Bound" is presumably one to Pinky and the Brain as a test to see if the sketch could work as its own show. This is made apparent because of the entire episode being a half-hour Pinky and the Brain cartoon with the only connections to Animaniacs being cameos by Slappy Squirrel and the Goodfeathers.

Actor Allusion
 Animaniacs / int_392372f9
comment
Actor Allusion: The short "Sir Yaksalot" has a segment that parodies Godzilla movies and Kaiju films in general, where the Warner siblings attempt to get help against the dragon from a council used to dealing with giant monsters, complete with their voices being (poorly) overdubbed. Perry Mason is among them, referencing Raymond Burr's role in the localized versions of some of the Godzilla movies. Minerva's personality is that of a Valley Girl - which her voice actress Julie Brown was known for mocking in her stand-up routines. In the Japanese dub, Satomi Koorogi's role as Mindy could be an allusion to her role as Hima, another toddler.

Something Completely Different: Some of the sketches featured none of the usual cast. One notable example is "The Flame", a mostly-serious cartoon entirely about a candle flame watching Thomas Jefferson write the Declaration of Independence. Even the "regular" cast can do this, such as the Rita and Runt segment "Puttin' on the Blitz", set in World War II Poland, and "The Little Old Lady From Pasadena," a straight-up music video of the song's original recording with Slappy in the titular role.

Raiders of the Lost Parody: An early episode wound up with Yakko directing Mr. Director through a few movie parodies. In one, Mr. Director was "Illinois Smith" and utterly failed with the whip - first he ends up tying himself up with the thing, then when he gets free he cracks it and it gets caught on the set rafters, bringing them down on him. "I think it's a not-working whip."

Take That, Audience!: The famous "Please, Please, Pleese Get a Life Foundation" sketch made fun of their Periphery Demographic (which features geeks rattling off Animaniacs trivia and nitpicks culled from an actual list found on a newsgroup). The cartoon was previewed for a group of hardcore Internet fans who made a pilgrimage to the studios. Afterwards, one of them pointed out an error in one of the quotations from the list - from memory. The response: "It's very layered, isn't it?"...that is, after the producer picked his jaw up off the floor.

Strictly Formula
 Animaniacs / int_3f1aadeb
comment
Strictly Formula: Most characters have a very strict plotline attached to their shorts. The quality of the writing usually depends on how much can be done with that given formula. The Warner sibling shorts: the Warners encounter a Straight Man (which could be anything from a celebrity to a Historical Domain Character to a mythical or literary figure), whom they drive insane with their zany Literal-Minded antics. Occasionally the formula is inverted by the Warners encountering someone even more annoying than them, and they are the ones driven insane. The Pinky and the Brain shorts: Brain comes up with an elaborate Zany Scheme to take over the world while Pinky absent-mindedly tags along. The scheme backfires either due to Pinky's idiocy or Brain making some fatal mistake, so Brain has to return back to the drawing board to come up with a new scheme. The Buttons and Mindy shorts: Mindy's mother trusts Buttons to take care of Mindy, who wanders around while Buttons suffers Amusing Injuries. The French episode shows that the formula doesn't need to be in English to work, and the caveman episode proves that it doesn't even need an intelligible language. The Chicken Boo shorts: Chicken Boo wears a Paper-Thin Disguise to blend in with a group of humans, which fools everyone except one guy who points out he's a giant chicken. Then, following some zany antics, the disguise falls off and the angry mob chases away Chicken Boo. The Katie Ka-Boom shorts: Katie does something ordinary for a teenager when one of her family members presses her Berserk Button, which makes her turn into a giant monster of some sort. The family flees in terror until Katie calms down and the conflict is resolved. The episode "Katie Ka-Boo" combines the above two formulas: Chicken Boo disguises himself as Katie's boyfriend, and Katie's little brother enrages her by pointing out that her boyfriend is a giant chicken.

"Jeopardy!" Intelligence Test: The first Pinky and the Brain short had Brain go on the quiz show "Gyp-Parody!" in order to raise enough money for a device to Take Over the World. He gets every single question right, but bombs the final question and loses everything. Of course, the answer to the final question was Ralph Kramden, which Brain would have known if he had listened to Pinky earlier in the episode.

Adult Fear

comment
Adult Fear: "One Flew Over the Cuckoo Clock" starts out innocently enough, with Slappy driven crazy from daytime talk shows, causing her to spout gibberish catch phrases and repeatedly toast her hat. Things quickly turn dark when Slappy is taken to the doctor who says she's having "an episode", and encourages Skippy to send her to a nursing home. Trying to care for his aunt himself makes Skippy fall asleep in class, and Slappy nearly burns their house down. The episode shows surprisingly realistic repercussions of what amounts to a child's primary caregiver coming down with dementia... Skippy tries in vain to trigger his Aunt's memories when he visits her, and is eventually taken into foster care when its discovered he's living on his own, but without giving him the opportunity to tell Slappy what's happened. Eventually its the irregularity of Skippy not being around that snaps Slappy back to reality, and her slapstick escape from the nursing home keeps this from being one of the most sobering children's cartoons of the 90's.

Jerk with a Heart of Gold
 Animaniacs / int_4781adbb
comment
Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Slappy hates to admit this, but she does care for her nephew Skippy. Mr. Plotz appears to hate the Warners, but he does harbor some respect for them. He'll even enlist their help on occasion when the pressures of running a major studio become too much for him. Much of the humor from the "Pinky and the Brain" shorts derives from Brain's constant verbal and even physical abuse of Pinky, but he also takes a paternal stance toward his lesser partner. (And Pinky admires Brain in return, once referring to him as "very honest and hard-working.") Rita sometimes falls into this trope, particularly in "When Rita Met Runt" and "Smitten With Kittens."

Butt-Monkey: Scratchansniff, Rita, the Brain, Pinky, Runt, Buttons, The Mime, Mr. Skullhead, Chicken Boo, the Goodfeathers, Charlton Woodchuck, Walter Wolf, Sid the Squid, Beanie the Bison, just about any non-main character... in other words, most of them, not surprising given that this is a WB cartoon. There's also a good deal of Iron Butt Monkey, since these characters are, for all intents and purposes, immortal (although we learn in "Meatballs or Consequences" that the Warners do have souls). The most common formula for the Warner shorts involved them finding and latching onto 'a Special Friend,' which pretty much meant that some Jerkass was in for six minutes of hilarious torment.

Sealed Evil in a Can
 Animaniacs / int_485eb589
comment
Sealed Chaos in a Can: The Warners were created in The '30s, but their cartoons were nonsensical, they caused havoc all over the studio and they drove their creator insane, so the bigwigs locked them in the Water Tower until FOR-E-VER. The series starts in The '90s when they finally make their escape, and as the theme song suggests, numerous attempts to lock them back in there are foiled time after time, to the point where most people seem to just leave them to their business, give the tower a wide berth and hope they don't cross their path.

Gory Discretion Shot: Used in "Valuable Lesson" when Attila the Hun attacks the two censors that have spent the entire short nagging the Warners about the violence in their cartoons. The carnage happens entirely off-screen, but Yakko's remark that the censors came in handy after all indicates that the censors didn't survive.

An in-universe example in the "Baghdad Cafe" portion of the Animaniacs Stew episode, the villain-of-the-week is "Sodarn Insane" - presumably the same guy. The Warners mistake him for the headwaiter, but the part of Dot is being played by Slappy, who sees no reason not to cut directly to Comedic Sociopathy:

Overly Pre-Prepared Gag
 Animaniacs / int_4fa05fd3
comment
Overly Pre-Prepared Gag: At least three Warners shorts are examples of these: "Wakko's Gizmo" has Wakko showing his siblings a giant Rube Goldberg contraption that ends up pushing a whoopee cushion. "The Party" has the Warners inviting everyone up to the water tower for a party. Thaddeus Plotz at first refuses to go, but then they mention that "Steven" will be there. The party is a disaster, and Plotz keeps intending to leave, but the Warners remind them that "Steven" will be disappointed. At the end, "Steven" finally shows up... Steven Pudner, that is, a schlubby fat nerd the Warners met on the Internet. Of course, Plotz was expecting Steven Spielberg. Yakko lampshades this, saying, "Was that a long way to go for a gag or what?" "Our Final Space Cartoon, We Promise!" is set up as yet another parody of 2001: A Space Odyssey, with AL replacing HAL. At the end, when AL begins humming "Hail to the Chief", the Warners realize AL is really Al Gore.

Artistic License – History: During the Presidents episode, Woodrow Wilson's section has the main characters marching in military uniforms past various World War 1 campaigns, such as Gallipoli, the Somme, and Verdun. The United States didn't take part in any of these battles, and only entered the war in 1917. Particularly confusing as the US did participate in several famous battles late-war, such as the Spring Offensive, Aisne, Hamel, and the Hundred Days.

Game Show Appearance: Downplayed in "Wakko's America". Their teacher organizes a Jeopardy!-style quiz in-class, where he sings the 50 U.S. states and their capitals. He loses because he doesn't sing it in the form of a question. In another episode, the Warners ended up on a quiz show, and were constantly guessing "Isaac Newton" for the answers...except for the questions actually about Isaac Newton. They once hosted a game show that parodied You Bet Your Life in one short skit. The Jeopardy!-style show Gyp-Parody! also figured in the Brain's very first attempt in-series to take over the world.

Unfortunately for him, the nun from earlier shows up with her convent as backup in a second attempt to get donations from the candy store, and thinks he was abusing them. Wakko and Dot happily roll with the assumption by fake-crying to get Flaxseed to let them go.

No Punctuation Period: And that's why the writers created Katie Kaboom to explain to innocent little children why their big sister chucks a psycho for NO JUSTIFIABLE REASON WHATSOEVER once a month.

Of course, it's not like teens don't have a tendency to overreact regardless of the time of the month (or their gender).

Not Allowed to Grow Up
 Animaniacs / int_5f9fbd83
comment
Not Allowed to Grow Up: The Warners' in-universe backstory states they were drawn in 1930, essentially making them all 80, and yet, none of them are geriatrics. It's particularly odd in that the Skippy and Slappy Squirrel segments make it quite clear that cartoon characters do age. Maybe it's because cartoon characters come from their creators' imaginations, so it depends on whether they were imagined as characters that age. The Warners come from the era of monochrome, where cartoon characters were kind of simple/crude, while Slappy seems like she's more from the 40's, as a more realistic character. Slappy throws a bit of a grim skew on it though in the short 'Rest in Pieces'. Though she and her old co-stars are clearly getting on in years, she tells Skippy that she knew Walter wasn't dead because 'there is no dying in the world of cartoons'.

Disgusting Public Toilet: The cartoon "Potty Emergency" has Wakko desperate for a place to relieve himself. Trying a gas station, the owner says he hasn't cleaned the restroom in a year (and gives an Evil Laugh). Despite his desperation, Wakko still finds that too gross to use.

Also parodied in one episode opener.

Meaningful Name: Dr. Scratchansniff's German last name is Freudlos, a double pun; it literally means "joyless", but it's also a reference to yet another psychiatrist... Yakko and Wakko. Wakko, a play on "wacko", as in someone who is a little whacky (strange or crazy), and Yakko, a play on "yakking away" or talking incessantly. Yakko almost never shuts up.

Unexplained Accent: Wakko has a Liverpudlian brogue for absolutely no damn reason — at least not one ever explained on the show. He was actually based specifically on Ringo Starr. Still, that's not an in-universe explanation. Given the nature of the Warners (cartoon characters come to life) that may very well be an in-universe explanation. Interestingly, he's the one that sings the states and capitals. He's the only Warner that does not have an American accent.

Four-Fingered Hands
 Animaniacs / int_6e92a631
comment
Four-Fingered Hands: The entire cast. Though hands have been seen to turn five-fingered on a close-up, or sometimes a character will grow a pinky while counting. There's also a really weird instance where a judge points as the Warners and asks, "What is the meaning of this?" Yakko replies, "That's a finger. You have five of them on each hand." In that instant, the judge has five fingers, but is seen to revert to being four fingered afterward. Averted with King Salazar, who is always shown with five-fingered hands.

Here We Go Again!: "Bumbie's Mom" ends with a sendup of Old Yeller. The ending of "Sound of Warners". At the end of "Roll Over, Beethoven", with said composer having forcibly ejected the chimney sweeping Warner siblings from his house (though they have just given him the melody for his famous Symphony No.5), they look at their list of clients to see whose chimney they're due to clean next - Vincent van Gogh. Wakko picks a nearby sunflower in the hope that it might cheer the guy up a bit. The end of the repeated "Yakko sings all the words in the English Language" scenes is Dot announcing that next week, Yakko will sing all of the numbers, starting with one. Yakko, who only barely got through the English dictionary, promptly faints upon hearing this.

Real Life Writes the Plot
 Animaniacs / int_786bf97f
comment
Real Life Writes the Plot: The "Please Please PLEASE Get a Life Foundation" was written using actual nitpicks from a newsgroup-made reference guide (the Cultural Reference Guide for Animaniacs) verbatim. The show's writers even e-mailed the people who wrote that guide for permission to use their quotes. The show's run coincided with the early days of wide Internet access, and in those days (early to mid 1990's) most online discussions were done in newsgroups. A group of these fans were subsequently invited to the studios to see the short before its broadcast premiere, as shown in this E! news segment from 1995. After the short was screened for the fans, one fan pointed out an error in the short's quoting of one of the nitpicks. From memory. This was met with incredulity by the staffers and no surprise at all by the fans. During the brief point in time when it looked unlikely that Bill Clinton would serve a second term, the creators hedged their bets by changing the theme song lyrics from "While Bill Clinton play the sax" to "We pay tons of income tax".

Opening Narration: Done via a Deliberately Monochrome (with a splash of tomato red on the Warner's noses) newsreel called Newsreel of the Stars, used to explain the Warner's genesis, how they got loose, drove the world insane, humiliated the studio executives, and became sealed chaos in a can.

Dogs Hate Squirrels: In the episode, "Slappy Goes Walnuts", one of Slappy Squirrel's archenemies is Doug the Dog, a bulldog who guards a walnut tree, which Slappy wants to collect walnuts from for her walnut fig-dough.

The Warner sibling shorts: the Warners encounter a Straight Man (which could be anything from a celebrity to a Historical Domain Character to a mythical or literary figure), whom they drive insane with their zany Literal-Minded antics. Occasionally the formula is inverted by the Warners encountering someone even more annoying than them, and they are the ones driven insane.

Interspecies Romance
 Animaniacs / int_8485d41a
comment
Interspecies Romance: The Warner Brothers and Sister, from an ambiguous species, keep getting lustful for other species, especially humans. In the Minerva Mink segments, animals from many different species and anthropomorphic levels get the hots for her, and in the comics even humans, while Minerva gets the hots for hunky males no matter the species. Rita's song lyrics and body language seem to indicate that she has romantic feelings for Runt. Runt, naturally, is completely oblivious. In the short West Side Pigeons, Squit (pidgeon) falls in love with Carloota (sparrow). In the short Wings Take Heart, there's a romance between a male moth and a female butterfly. In the short Katie Ka-Boo, Katie (human girl) gets a new boyfriend, but it's Chicken Boo disguised.

Parental Bonus: To the point where watching this show as a child and watching it years later as an adult are completely different experiences. While the show is well known enough for Getting Crap Past the Radar, there is also a high amount of pop culture references, political commentary, and references to current events that virtually no child would be familiar with, but a grown-up sure would. As noted over in Real Life Writes the Plot, there was actually a list of all the Parental Bonuses compiled by fans on Usenet. Reading that after having seen the show will likely as not have you in stitches from all the Late to the Punchline moments.

Truth in Television: A lot of skits, especially of the Warner trio, mimic real-life situations that happen to real people (some, even, on situations that happened to the writers themselves). Though they're incredibly exaggerated, there's always that one line where you hear it and think, "Oh, that is so true." And of course, the entire premise of "Bumbie's Mom." The absurd event that triggers Slappy's antics in "I Got Yer Can" ("Please don't throw your trash in my trash can.") came from that exact thing happening to one of the writers.

Too Long; Didn't Dub: In the Latin American Spanish dub of the short "I'm Mad", Wakko's line "Gotta use the potty, better stop the car!" is translated into "Tengo que ir al baño para la potty"note  "I gotta get to a bathroom soon to use the potty!". This is justified, as the Spanish word for "potty", "orinal", also happens to be the word for "urinal".

When Slappy and Skippy finally do use violence (cartoon violence) on the bully and it works, the senator and the counselor are both livid. Slappy's response to both their complaints is to use the machine the senator had sent to her, which carries out all cartoon violence off screen. Naturally, they both concede to Slappy's methods when they emerge as charred, beaten wrecks.

Follow the Bouncing Ball: The two sing-along VHS tapes (Animaniacs Sing-Along: Yakko's World and Animaniacs Sing-Along: Mostly in Toon) were yet another example of sing-along collections with the lyrics written on screen. Some songs used the trope's name, while others would highlight the words as they were sung, and some even used a mixture of both methods. In some pretty unusual cases, "Yakko's World" and "All the Words in the English Language" had the words crawl upwards one at a time (due to both being List Songs), and "Wakko's America" and "The Presidents" used neither "bouncing ball" method, instead opting to highlight the state and capital or the president names, respectively.

It was successful, if only for 63 years.

Leitmotif
 Animaniacs / int_9f6fb586
comment
Leitmotif: Just about every character had one. Nicely shown off in the last short: The Animaniacs Suite. Certain actions warranted their own theme music too. For example, a character eating was usually accompanied by "Shortnin' Bread" and a character cleaning something would be accompanied by "Here We Go 'Round the Mulberry Bush". This is an obvious callback to Carl Stalling's work. Hello Nurse's leitmotif (a sultry drumbeat) is an interesting case, where hers was started by Wakko in the first short ("Dezanitizsed") just to screw with the audience in true Warner fashion, but has since stuck with the character ever since.

One really obscure take that is aimed at a vintage Disney short, "Playful Pluto", specifically the famous flypaper sequence that it's known for. The skit involved the Warners in one of their early works, "Flies in the Ointment" , where they get flypaper stuck to their butts, and the film ran for eight hours.

Mood Whiplash
 Animaniacs / int_a4c37cbe
comment
Mood Whiplash: There was one serious Slappy cartoon in which Slappy was put away in an asylum and Skippy was taken away by social services, and... to say that this episode was just an example of this trope is an understatement. The mood jumped up and down OVER AND OVER again, to the point of being a highly compressed intra-episode version of Cerebus Roller Coaster. It leads in with a comedic stretch where Slappy is driven mad by watching too many daytime talk shows (Jerry Springer etc.), which she can't stand. Then her madness is played for laughs for a while. Then Skippy takes her to the doctor, and even amidst there being a few gags in the scene, suddenly it starts portraying realistic consequences of her going insane. Then it just keeps REPEATEDLY ALTERNATING between playing it for laughs and portraying the tragic real consequences of a kid's aunt losing her mental faculties. Then she suddenly gets better and escapes the asylum for a happy ending. Then as a Continuity Nod in later episodes she references that now she actually LIKES those talk shows. "The Ballad of Magellan" really makes us feel sympathy for the man, after which The Great Wakkarotti is brought in for comic relief.

Circus Episode: "I'm Mad" combines this with Road Trip Plot. Dr. Scratchansniff takes the Warners on a long car trip, only to struggle greatly because the Warners are fighting and arguing like bratty little kids the whole way. When they reach their destination, which turns out to be a circus, the Warners finally stop fighting and brighten up. We then skip to the end of the day, with the Warners and Dr. Scratchansniff returning to the car, and the Warners talk about how much they enjoyed their time at the circus. But then, the moment they start to drive away, the Warners start fighting again.

"The Little Drummer Warners" has Yakko, Wakko, and Dot go back in time to first-century Bethlehem to witness the birth of the baby Jesus (religion always a controversial subject for kids' cartoons, for various reasons). You'll notice they are unusually low-keyed and respectful - at least until they start performing "The Little Drummer Boy" and suddenly turn it into a 1940s-style swing number. (Hey, they had to do something wacky.)

Based on a True Story: Buddy's backstory in the "The Warner 65th Anniversary Special" is actually based on a real thing and a real character. Buddy's first shorts were considered so dull and bland that Warner Bros refused to accept his first two cartoons, which got the original director fired. They had to bring Friz Freleng in to re-edit and condense them into a single short.

Off-Model: There were eight, count them, EIGHT animation companies that worked on the show; note  Those studios are TMS Entertainment, AKOM, Wang Film Productions, StarToons, Koko Enterprises, Freelance Animators New Zealand, Philippine Animation Studio Inc.., and Varga Studios. all had different drawing and animation styles (and that does not even count the studios that TMS used under contract note these included Nakamura Productions, Ajia-Do, Tatsunoko Production, Kyoto Animation, Anime Spot, Tokyo Kids, Mizo Planning, Spectrum Animation, Flying Dragon, Studio Jungle Gym, Oh Production, Magic Bus, Studio Junio, Studio Nue and Far Eastern (the latter also working with Wang). All of them uncredited. However, almost all of them used TMS' style). Mostly with segments animated by Freelance Animators New Zealand, take a look. StarToons tended to dip into this, as well with the Slappy the Squirrel intro and "Wakko's America", though not to the extreme as Freelance, as well as tending to make the animation even more expressive. Unfortunately, the same can not be said about shorts like "The Big Candy Store" or "Wally Llama". AKOM, of course. Though it's the more bland and uninteresting animation and sometimes horrific, rather than cartoonish, expressions as opposed to poor drawings as was usually the case with the studio. Many of the later episodes (such as the "Hooray For North Hollywood" two-parter and "The Carpool) fall deep into this. Happened occasionally with TMS's episodes as well, as several of their shorts went though numerous subcontractors and animation teams. For instance, "Taming of the Screwy" was given to Tatsunoko Production and the end result wasn't prettynote The animation is far below TMS' usual standards of liveliness and comes off looking like a low-budget late 80s anime at times, the Warners' noses are too small through most of the cartoon, and in one scene an object (a plate with a lobster claw, in this case) teleports from one spot toa slightly different spot between frames. "Roll Over Beethoven", "Home on De Nile" and "H.M.S. Yakko" are also guilty of this. The show was also so expensive that it couldn't afford character layout drawings. The animators instead blew up the storyboard panels to ten-field size so they could be registered to the animation pegs. Some of the more exaggerated board drawings would end up getting animated, resulting in weird proportional shifts. The other Spielberg/Rugger shows also did this, with similar results.

Be Careful What You Wish For: "Dot's Quiet Time" sees the titular character traveling all over the world in an effort to find a silent, peaceful spot to do some reading. When she finally does find one, she sits down and turns a few pages...then realizes that it's too quiet. Dot promptly pulls out a boombox and starts blasting the theme song.

Loophole Abuse: The candy store episode has Flaxseed save himself from the nuns about to attack him by pointing out they aren't allowed to resort to violence. They actually agree with him and pray for assistance, which brings the Notre Dame football team to the store so they can do it instead. Nothing stops the nuns from allowing sympathetic souls to take action they want to but their vows prevent them from doing.

Spoof Aesop: An especially brilliant use, an almost Once per Episode gag using the Wheel of Morality.

Smarter Than You Look: The Warners. They can perform and explain Shakespeare; name every country, as well as every American state and capital, and every President, from memory; and generally make frequent references to science, history, literature, politics, and a host of other subjects. At the same time they act as if they haven't half a brain between them whenever Dr. Scratchansniff tries to talk to or explain something to them. They are completely insane, but they are geniuses. Pinky and the Brain. One is a genius, the other is insane. But which is which? The one who tries to take over the world every single night? Or the one who "accidentally" foils his mad schemes every night with his convenient mask of idiocy?

Take That!
 Animaniacs / int_b53077b3

Take That!: If it's in public media, it's a target. Nothing, NOTHING is safe (not even the fans), though Disney and network censors are choice victims. In "Sound of Warners": In "Deduces Wild," some of the items they're searching for in a scavenger hunt are... In Slappy Goes Walnuts, after trying Skippy's favorite sugary cereal Slappy says One really obscure take that is aimed at a vintage Disney short, "Playful Pluto", specifically the famous flypaper sequence that it's known for. The skit involved the Warners in one of their early works, "Flies in the Ointment" , where they get flypaper stuck to their butts, and the film ran for eight hours. "Back in Style" has the Warners loaned out to guest-star on parodies of Yogi Bear, Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!, Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids, and Underdog. During all their guest appearances, the Warners riff the cartoons for their cheap animation and bland plots and also inflict injuries on the characters. In the case of the Yogi Bear and Scooby-Doo parodies, they count as Take That and not Self-Deprecation because Hannah-Barbera was still a separate entity from Warner Bros. at the time.

Hypocritical Humor: Yakko and Wakko's "Hello, Nurse!" is often followed with a disparaging "Boys - go fig." from Dot. And then comes a muscular man... Also: In the Please Please Please Get A Life Foundation skit, they talk about people obsessing over miniscule background details that have been inserted into cartoon shows (specifically their own), talking about how they need to get a life... details that they themselves put into the show in the first place. They even lampshade their inclusion of such trivial details within the short, encouraging people to "call us before you rewind to see what was in the room in the opening shot!"

Elvis Lives: A favorite Running Gag. He turns up in "Space Probed," hanging out with Bigfoot and Amelia Earhart; is standing in a long cafeteria line in "Windsor Hassle"; and is pulled out of Wakko's gag bag while Wakko is rummaging through it in "Potty Emergency." One of the stingers saw the Warner Trio saying goodnight to one another, offscreen. It ended with: And from The Wheel of Morality: "Elvis lives on in our hearts, in his music, and in a trailer park outside Milwaukee." In "Wakko's America", Wakko tells us that Elvis hung out a lot in Nashville.

The Resolution Will Not Be Televised: The Direct-to-Video movie Wakko's Wish, an Alternate Universe medieval fantasy with a semi-serious plot that ultimately gave all of the characters in the series resolution despite the fact they were all removed from their traditional settings. One could also consider it a Massive Multiplayer Crossover — while the characters were all in the same show, they rarely all interacted in the same place.

Especially in the Warner shorts, in which one might say there are two missing/broken fourth walls, with one that fits the premise of the show (that they are children who live on the WB Studio and perform skits) and one that goes even beyond that (such as Dot's profanity-laden rant in Cutie and the Beast, or the cold ending, in which they plan to go out and get cappuccinos, in the same episode). Your mind will explode if you try to make too much sense of it.

Karmic Protection: The Warners were only truly malevolent to the bad guys, which justifies a lot of the mayhem they cause. Even people who were annoyed by them but otherwise good characters would ultimately get the Warners' help in the end. One episode even lampshaded it and discussed it, when a kid watching at home wondered why the Warners weren't doing more to the antagonist. One episode had them frustrated because a character they wanted to get rid of (a Sound of Music style Julie Andrews Expy) did nothing to invite retribution. In the end, they sicced Slappy Squirrel on her. Problem solved. Still, a lot of what the Warners do could be needlessly cruel to the point of making them unsympathetic, such as stripping Otto in the "Schnitzelbank" song or leaving the woodchuck in the toilet in "Kid in the Lid"... until you remember that everyone's an actor; hardly any of what takes place is "real". One cartoon was cut because they were too malicious.

Couch Gag: The second to last line of the opening song is interchangeable with several other lines, all of which rhyme with "Animani—". note For re-runs on Nickelodeon, the line was changed to "Nickel-ayni!" for every episode, while The Hub just used the generic "Here's the show's namey" for most episodes. The closing credits would also have various credits gags that changed from episode to episode, plus the occasional closing joke after the credits finish. Episode 65 deserves special mention for the sheer number of credits gags.

Universal-Adaptor Cast: Cartoons take place anywhere and everywhere. The Warners bugging Einstein, Picasso, or Beethoven? Pinky and the Brain as Pavlov's mice? Slappy vs. Daniel Boone? Mindy and Buttons in Prehistoria? The Goodfeathers as WWI carrier pigeons? Chicken Boo as a Civil War general? Rita and Runt in ancient Egypt? Yes, all those and more!

Fighting Back Is Wrong: In one Slappy Squirrel episode, Skippy is constantly being picked on by a school bully. Slappy suggests fighting back, but Skippy refuses because of his counselor telling that is the wrong thing to do and instead tries everything his counselor suggests to him. When nothing the counselor suggests works, Skippy gives up and gets Aunt Slappy to help him get back at the bully, and the end result not only stops the bullying, but the bully also becomes Skippy's friend. When the chairman of the FTA and Skippy's counselor arrive to lecture Slappy, she deals with them too.

Refuge in Audacity: So much. In "Hot, Bothered and Bedeviled," the Warners take a wrong turn at Kennebunkport and end up in Hell, tormenting Satan. The same episode features Saddam Hussein plunging into a lake of lava and three demonic stand-ins for The Andrews Sisters singing a jazz tune about eternal damnation. An in-universe example in the "Baghdad Cafe" portion of the Animaniacs Stew episode, the villain-of-the-week is "Sodarn Insane" - presumably the same guy. The Warners mistake him for the headwaiter, but the part of Dot is being played by Slappy, who sees no reason not to cut directly to Comedic Sociopathy:

Depending on the Artist
 Animaniacs / int_d83f3588
comment
Depending on the Artist: The show had a passel of different animation studios working on it, often leading to examples of this trope. One of the most blatant examples was the short "Be Careful What You Eat". It was animated by StarToons but the first minute looks nothing like the studio's usual style (in fact, it looks more like something AKOM would put out). According to Jon McClenahan, this minute was animated by somebody on the west coast that the studio didn't usually employ and to this day, he refuses to say who it is out of respect.

Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Fairly regular. The Warner Brothers attempted to escape "Balony and Friends" multiple times, but for once their efforts were fruitless. Slappy had a strong distaste for cameos and would regularly threaten to leave. Dot's feeling out of it in "Gimme the Works," so the Warners decide to walk off the set and end the thing early. She's not feeling any better in their second short that episode, "Hercules Unwound," but in that case the cartoon goes on without them.

Company Cross References: One of the lyrics in "I Am The Very Model Of A Cartoon Individual" mentions several other Warner Brothers cartoon characters: Tweety Bird, Daffy Duck and Babs and Buster Bunny. In "Potty Emergency", a poster of Gossamer from Looney Tunes is seen outside the movie theater. In the coloring book adapting the same episode, Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck are seen as posters. In the episode "Take My Siblings, Please", Wakko sings the theme to Tiny Toon Adventures, which is also a Warner Brothers cartoon. The cast of Tiny Toon Adventures show up in "The Big Wrap Party Tonight".

Continuity Snarl: The original explanation that the kids have been locked in a water tower for 63 years is contradicted in a later episode showing various older Hollywood stars reminiscing about spending nights on the town with them - and these photos are in black and white, meaning those nighttime adventures almost surely took place before 1993. Did the Warners actually escape many times, but the studio succeed in covering up their existence until the '90s? If so, how was that accomplished? Did they massively bribe all the people in those nightclubs? The 65th Anniversary Special gives it a retcon—the tower had to be cleaned/repaired every few years or so, letting the Warners out for a single day for the work (they just didn't stay in the studio—Plotz says he has no clue where they went and we're later shown them at a disco club, the Berlin Wall, and so on).

Limited Animation: Parodied in "Back in Style". Rumor has it that, in a rare subversion, the animation kept being sent back to AKOM because it came out looking too good. Thanks to uneven animation, Varga Studio's "When You're Traveling" and most of Freelance Animators New Zealand's shorts tend to fall into this quite often.

Musical Episode: Rita and Runt have at least one song per short. There are also numerous episodes that parody Broadway without those two characters that still act as musical episodes. Combining the two, one extended Rita and Runt segment is basically a parody of Les Misérables. Episode 82 consists entirely of episodes based around music: "Wakko's 2-Note Song," "Panama Canal," "Hello Nurse," "The Ballad of Magellan," "The Return of the Great Wakkorotti," and "The Big Wrap Party Tonight." It even includes the extended theme song.

comment
Slappy Squirrel, with her New York accent, use of Yiddish as a Second Language, and occasional jokes about menorahs and bat mitzvahs – though like the Warners, she and Skippy also celebrate Christmas. Meanwhile, her archenemy Walter Wolf is a full-blown Yiddish-accented Alter Kocker.

Whole Plot Reference: Far too many to count. Among those that haven't already been listed, A Christmas Carol and Disney's Beauty and the Beast are some of the most notable examples. They also did an entire parody on Disney movies in general, and Pocahontas in particular. And a Rita-and-Runt full-on musical parody of Les Misérables, and the Goodfeather parodies of West Side Story and Fiddler on the Roof.

All Women Are Lustful: Although Dot would roll her eyes at the boys going gaga over hot ladies, she would be proved Not So Above It All as soon as an attractive man was in view (especially Mel Gibson). Minerva Mink as well turned into just as big a pervert as her own admirers when confronted with her best friend's cousin.

The Buttons and Mindy shorts: Mindy's mother trusts Buttons to take care of Mindy, who wanders around while Buttons suffers Amusing Injuries. The French episode shows that the formula doesn't need to be in English to work, and the caveman episode proves that it doesn't even need an intelligible language.

Very Loosely Based on a True Story: The Warners 65th Anniversary Special. While his creation didn't lead to the creation of the Warner Brothers, Buddy is actually a very real cartoon character created in 1933 and his cartoons were particularly infamous even back then for being insanely boring. Also, they indeed brought another animator to try and spice things up after his first cartoons failed.

Yakko, who is obviously modeled on Groucho Marx, especially the voice and the eyebrows. And, of course, Yakov is the Yiddish version of Jacob, which was the real first name of studio co-founder Jack Warner. Interestingly, Yakko's sister Dot came off as only very vaguely Jewish (she was reportedly inspired by the Jewish actress Fanny Brice), while little brother Wakko had no identifiably Jewish traits at all (his voice actor based the middle Warner's voice on a younger version of Ringo Starr). However, the cartoons "'Twas the Day Before Christmas," "Little Drummer Warners" and "Noel" reveal that the kids celebrate Christmas.

Catchphrase
 Animaniacs / int_e6b5d22f
comment
Catchphrase: There were several. Yakko and Wakko had "Hello, Nurse!" and its variants. Yakko had "Goodnight, everybody!" Yakko also had "Of course you know, this means Warners.", though his siblings joined in on at least one occasion. Dot had variations on "I can't help it if I'm cute," as well as "Wanna see my pet?" Wakko had "Faboo!" Slappy had "You remind me of..." (See below.) Skippy had "Spew!!" as an Unusual Euphemism. Mindy had "OK-I-love-you-bye-bye." The Brain had the running gags that started with "Are you pondering what I'm pondering?" as well as a Cassandra Truth: "We are two lab mice engaged in the early stages of a plot to conquer the world." Also: "Stop that, or I shall have to hurt you." Pinky's catch phrases were largely of the Verbal Tic variety, most notably "Narf!" Pesto's usual one was the running gag (and homage to Goodfellas) that started with "What are you saying?" or "What do you mean by that?"

Too Spicy for Yog-Sothoth: The Warners themselves, repeatedly. Also Baloney (a Barney Captain Ersatz), a Captain Ersatz of Maria from The Sound of Music, and the dangerously affectionate Elmyra from Tiny Toons Adventures have proven too much for the Warners. Notably, the Warners escape Elmyra by enticing her to follow Mindy, due to Mindy's cuteness. Cue Amusing Injuries, and Button's relief.

Artistic License – Geography
 Animaniacs / int_e9f517e1
comment
Artistic License – Geography: "Puttin on the Blitz" is guilty of this way too many times. At the end of "Puttin on the Blitz", set in Poland, as the train to Paris departs from Warsaw, there are some tall mountains (presumably Tatras) in the background. The thing is, the real Tatras (and any Polish mountains, for that matter) are impossible to be seen from Warsaw, no matter how one tries. Also, the country's outline in the beginning is the modern one, not the correct, Interwar outline. The map also has Ukraine separate from the USSR. Germany on the map has its modern borders, without Pomerania, Silesia and East Prussia. Finally, taking a train to Paris amid World War II isn't exactly the smartest thing to do when the Nazis are invading Europe and want your race exterminated. The Polish girl and her father would need to travel through Axis territory. The "Yakko's World" song omits several countries, such as Wales, names Asia (which is a continent), and refers to Korea as a single country when it's actually two separate countries, officially known as the Republic of Korea and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and more commonly known as North Korea and South Korea. It makes the same mistake with Ireland, referring to simply "Ireland" when Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland are two different countries.

Biting-the-Hand Humor
 Animaniacs / int_ea5c413d
comment
Biting-the-Hand Humor: Quite frequent during the earlier episodes on FOX. Another instance, blink and you'll miss it, but during "Phranken-Runt", we get a shot of Phrankenstein's brain-in-a-jar shelf. The jar which contained by far the smallest is labeled "TV Network Executive Brain." Made even funnier by the fact that a few bars of We're In The Money can be heard when the camera lingers on it. The most audacious example is in the opening credits, where they announce they have Pay-or-Play Contracts, a contract where they don't even need to work to get paid! One of the "Wheel of Morality" segments had Wakko and Dot complain about it, only to go a complete 180 on their opinion when Yakko informs them that the Wheel of Morality was the network executives' idea. The biting didn't stop once the show moved to Kids' WB!. In fact, one of the credit gags parodied the slogan at the time, "Big Kids Go First!", by saying "On The WB, Big Kids Go First - In Real Life, Big Kids Sleep In". Another credit gag stated "Be The First Kid On Your Block - To Watch Kids' WB!".

Crossover
 Animaniacs / int_eb7c34cf
comment
Crossover: Within itself, and with Tiny Toon Adventures, Freakazoid! and Pinky and the Brain when they ran concurrently. One episode in particular was dedicated to this: every segment featured characters from different shorts going through the typical plots of their own cartoons. Mindy was paired with Brain, who attempted to create a revolting stink bomb while babysitting her; Rita and Pinky shared a (very brief) short wherein the cat, quite logically, ate the mouse; Squit and Runt tried to find themselves a decent home, only to be doomed by the pigeon's short temper; Katie Ka-Boom brought her new boyfriend "C.B."—that is, Chicken Boo—over for a date, and became furious when her family pointed out that he was a chicken; Dot briefly took over Slappy's tree and blew up the audience with a bomb for calling her Dottie; and Slappy herself (along with Flavio the Hip Hippo in a cameo as Skippy) joined the Warners in their own cartoon, where she lost all patience for their zany antics and wordplay and ended up using her traditional arsenal of bombs.

Early-Bird Cameo: Most of the regular characters have cameos in the first episode, even though all the cartoons in that episode star the Warner siblings and the others wouldn't get their first full-length cartoons until at least an episode or two later. A young Walter Wolf appears as Slappy's co-star in the old cartoon she watches at the beginning of her debut, "Slappy Goes Walnuts," and she also mentions Sid the Squid and Beanie the Bison. They wouldn't appear in the "present" until "Hooray For Slappy" in Episode 16.

Suddenly Speaking
 Animaniacs / int_f1e6402d
comment
Suddenly Speaking: The Mime, Chicken Boo and Buttons (all ordinarily voiceless) can be seen singing along with everyone else in the opening credits when the characters shout "We're Animaney, totally insaney!" We also see the mime move his lips in Wakko's Wish, and he actually says something in "Les Boutons et le Ballon". " Le Owwwwww".

His Name Really Is
 Animaniacs / int_f66dfb4b
comment
His Name Really Is "Barkeep": The constant exclamation of "Hello Nurse!" whenever she appears onscreen became so ingrained in her character that by the end of the series, her first name is literally "Hello" and her last name is literally "Nurse."

 Animaniacs / int_f7bacf52
comment
You Sexy Beast: In the Minerva Mink short "Moon Over Minerva". A geeky wolf, named Wilford B. Wolf, would turn into a hunky Fabio-like wolf when exposed to the full moon. Minerva won't give his geeky self the time of day, but she goes crazy for his moonlit self. Needless to say the short is pretty heavy on the Fanservice for both the male and female audiences.

Running Gag
 Animaniacs / int_f9f2c33
comment
Running Gag: Again, too many to count. Notably "Wanna See My Pet?", the Warners being chased by Ralph in the background of other shorts, and Yakko announcing "Good Night Everybody!" if something even remotely suggestive was said. A short-lived one was used in both "This Pun For Hire" and "Anchors A-Warners": A character says "No no no." Yakko in the first instance and Dot in the latter instance asked the character to repeat that. The character again said, "No no no." Then each replied, "I love that!" What about the dragon!? The dragon! The dragon! The dragon! The dragon! The dragon! Would someone please stop this man from saying "Dragon"?

Fun with Foreign Languages: One episode was French-themed, including a rendition of the opening theme in French and a subtitled "Buttons and Mindy" segment. While the "Rita and Runt" segment was in English, it was their parody of Les Misérables, which of course took place in The French Revolution.

The War Room
 Animaniacs / int_fba729d7
comment
The War Room: Parodied in a episode where the Warners get pulled to Camelot to deal with a dragon that's causing havoc across the kingdom. Yakko calls his siblings to the War Room, then asks King Arthur where the War Room is. When Arthur says they don't have one, Wakko pulls one out of his bag. Inside is a setup that would make any general or Mad Scientist envious, with monitors on every wall showing the rampaging dragon and at the bottom a group of military leaders and scientists around a table debating whether to destroy the dragon or capture it for study. The Warners decide to forget the War Room after that.

Comically Missing the Point
 Animaniacs / int_fbd285b7
comment
Comically Missing the Point: A common gag. Wakko and Pinky were particularly prone to it. In the "Chicken Boo" segments, the person wise to Chicken Boo's disguise often insists "He's a chicken, I tell you! A giant chicken!" Occasionally, the people who disbelieve this claim are implied to assume that the person meant "chicken" as in "coward".

Cerebus Rollercoaster
 Animaniacs / int_fc06cf53
comment
There was one serious Slappy cartoon in which Slappy was put away in an asylum and Skippy was taken away by social services, and... to say that this episode was just an example of this trope is an understatement. The mood jumped up and down OVER AND OVER again, to the point of being a highly compressed intra-episode version of Cerebus Roller Coaster. It leads in with a comedic stretch where Slappy is driven mad by watching too many daytime talk shows (Jerry Springer etc.), which she can't stand. Then her madness is played for laughs for a while. Then Skippy takes her to the doctor, and even amidst there being a few gags in the scene, suddenly it starts portraying realistic consequences of her going insane. Then it just keeps REPEATEDLY ALTERNATING between playing it for laughs and portraying the tragic real consequences of a kid's aunt losing her mental faculties. Then she suddenly gets better and escapes the asylum for a happy ending. Then as a Continuity Nod in later episodes she references that now she actually LIKES those talk shows.

Department of Redundancy Department: In the sketch "Mobster Mash", the Warners pretend to be waiters and harass the Godfather Don Pepperoni. Part of this is saying the things on the menu two different ways. "What'll it be? Calamari or the squid? Pasta or the noodles? Red sauce or marinara? Zucchini or squash? Ham or prosciutto? Drink or beverage?"

Beware the Nice Ones: Played straight with the Warner sibs, but also played with: the sibs really can't bring themselves to harass genuinely nice people, even if they're naturally annoying - the sibs will endure the annoyingness while hoping the person will go away on their own. So, the sibs actually beware the nice (annoying) ones!

Nuns Are Funny: The candy store episode had the Warners tormenting a stuck-up store proprietor named Flaxseed after he refused to donate candy to a orphanage run by nuns. After driving him nuts, Flaxseed finally gets hold of Wakko and Dot... only for the nun from before to come back with reinforcements. They're about to kick his ass before Flaxseed points out that nuns aren't supposed to resort to violence. So, the nuns proceed to pray, and the Notre Dame college football team shows up to pummel the living crap out of Flaxseed.

Shown Their Work: "Yes Always" is based on a recording of Orson Welles trying to do a commercial, and criticising the director trying to give him feedback. It's taken almost verbatim, except for the profanity in the original recording. "Win Big" has Brain losing on Gyp-Parody! when he gets the final question wrong after wagering his entire earnings, and he is not invited to come back on the next game. On the actual show, no champion is crowned if neither contestant finishes Final Jeopardy! with a score above $0.
