The A to Z Challenge - Day #1 - Letter A - Animaniacs

Today is the 1st day of the A to Z Blogging Challenge, and the letter of the day is A. I have chosen the wonderful cartoon 'Animaniacs' to be my topic today!!!


Wacko, Yakko, & Dot... The Warner siblings.... cartoon stars of the 1930's locked in the water tower on the Warner Brothers lot until they escaped in the 1990's. These three nuts were an awesome breath of fresh air to the animation business of the 90's . The cartoons at that time couldn't even come close to the sharp humor and satire that each episode of Animaniacs pulled off so effortlessly. Created by Tom Ruegger & Executive Produced by Steven Speilberg, this show may be the most important new cartoon of the 1990's. Oh, and it was also the show where Pinky & the Brain got it's start.

My favorite sketches & skits on the show were the crazy songs that the gang used to sing. They were educational, but so well executed. Here are a few that I loved:
