Even just watching a few episodes of first season of Animaniacs shows how deeply weird the program was. Famous historical figures from Thomas Jefferson to Abraham Lincoln stop by. Silly slapstick mixes in with more dramatic comedy about family conflict and relationships. While not for the youngest set, especially with the many jokes referencing classic Hollywood, the series is still an absolute delight for both adults and children.

Animaniacs Season 1 Episodes (1-22): Quick Query: Is and are Animaniacs zealously zany to the utmost max? Quicker Answer: Definitely definitively, and infinitively…YES?!...YES!?...YES?!...and…what?!…what?!...with the what?! The Warner Brothers and the Warner Brothers’ Sister Dot are like delightful, funny Deities, who quite frequently break out into intelligent song and good vibe verse. It is the comical license genius to take the boring banal and the meaningless menial of everyday dilly-dally-shilly-shally antics and mix it amongst the ingenuity of vitalities’ vim and vigor, via simple soul’s simplicity, and have it stand against and versus the outer world’s perplexing vexing, wasted and seriously overworked bodily verve. In my most dire and dearest of opinions, as per pinnacles, apexes, and acmes of crafted, classy, classical comedies are concerned, Animaniacs seems to create and cast its own stitched shadow over this type of genre and tackles it with welcomed tendril touching tenacity, and it ardently reaches to achieve this thru its well written songs and thru its tightly tailored scripts. When I was as a kid back in the 1990’s AD, I most definitely could not appreciate all zaniness that this show had to potentially and possibly offer. I like how main characters like the Warner Brothers can gently grace and insert themselves momentarily into other characters’ stories, (such as like running thru the background of Slappy the Squirrel’s story arc), and act as like visual background or as like “extras” that would be found roaming in a movie…and they, these special “extras” are then to not take any actually serious roles…as they, these “extras”, are only to act as ambient and aesthetic scene devices to the ongoing current character’s story being told. Perhaps cameos would describe this clever device much more accurately. In the Pirate episode, Warner Brothers breaking out in a similitude version of “The Pirates of Pinzas” was feverishly funny. ACME products never seem to get old as an act. And when in fact, the “Best of the Best” products, never get better or ever live to their namesake. A classical comedy device this is. I like the “educational” themes introduced thru their songs, and what is nice is that in some of these songs, it is shown while even knowing that we know of such information, we still dunno…to the max. Truly, it is sincerity to the max, to have thus-this seemingly strong truth in their song, and it showing itself as some kind of arcane awesomeness and showing itself as scientific splendor; well, this is indeed most megalomaniacally awesome. Thank you for this show and series. The music was magnificently awesome and operated with whimsical and wily wittiness. Simply superb. There were a number of and plethora of parodies that took original song scores and augmented and ameliorated them to relate to whatever was being referenced to in the show. Excellent.

Even though I thought that the animation side of things for these Animaniac cartoons was really very good, indeed - I considered its 3 principle characters (Yakko, Wakko & Dot) to be quite repulsive and, yes, unnecessarily mean-spirited in nature._____ These 3 annoying, over-the-top goofballs completely lacked the much-needed charm and general likability that was clearly evident with the original, Looney Tune cartoon characters from Warner Bros. (such as Bugs Bunny, Tweetie Bird, Porky Pig, Elmer Fudd, Sylvester, etc., etc.) in those golden years of yesterday._____ Due to the decidedly nasty cynicism and blatant sexual innuendo generously mixed into many of the Animaniacs' storylines, I personally felt that these cartoons were of a questionable choice for the viewing of young, impressionable children._____ And, as far as being suitable for the likes of myself (as an adult) - I found Wakko, Yakko & Dot (not very original names) to be so childishly cruel in their shenanigans that their overall presence quickly became too exhausting and downright stupid to hold onto my undivided attention for more than just a couple of measly minutes._____ Of course, you, yourself, might feel quite the opposite about Animaniacs. And, with that I say - "To each their own, man. To each their own." - Right?

“Today on mime time”…”trapped in an imaginary box”. *Mime acts out being trapped in a box that seems to be enveloping him…then, a huge, actual ACME safe physically drops upon him from above.*
To forget that one or someone created said such imaginary box and not know where said such box came from or question its integrity, means one becomes trapped in concept of what they now believe to be as an actual box. Concepts come from the limitless; and to stay contained and captured in absolutely accepting absurd concepts for one’s own, this causes self to be enslaved via one’s own limiting self. This is what I got from this passage. -X
