“United States, Canada, Mexico, Panama, Haiti, Jamaica, Peru; Republic Dominican, Cuba, Caribbean, Greenland, El Salvador too.” By now, the classic Animaniacs’ song, Yakko’s World, is probably firmly stuck in your head. But did you know that Rob Paulsen, the voice of Yakko Warner, recorded that incredibly complex…
For those who were kids in the 90s, and just about everybody else, The Animaniacs was more than just a cartoon show. It was an education in adult jokes (the “fingerprints” gag in particular is a modern classic), what it meant to be zany to the max, and, of course, world geography. The “Yakko’s World” song taught us…
The totally insane-y ’90s cartoon Animaniacs might be back on its way to a screen near you.
Are you pondering what I’m pondering? No, it has nothing to do with monkeys and dental floss. We’re ranking every single one of Brain’s schemes—both from the Pinky and the Brain series and their shorts on Animaniacs—and thereby take over the internet! (Enh, we’ll figure that part out later.)
Last month, it was announced that 25 years’ worth of Nicktoon characters—possibly everyone from Eliza Thornberry to Invader Zim to Ginger to Doug—will join forces in one all-star, ensemble, Avengers-style movie. A lot of these guys were on the airwaves back in the ‘90s. Seeing the fan-made promo images made me…
Remember Wakko's informative, catchy "50 States and Their Capitals" song from the classic '90s cartoon Animaniacs? Well, this gentleman named Kylan has remade the song to include both every nation on the planet, and their capitals, too. It's beyond impressive (and still ridiculously catchy).
Almost all of us have, as adults, gone back to the stuff we watched as a kid and realized it contained some "dirty" stuff that went over our heads. Innuendo in kids comedies is pretty common. But how much innuendo do kids understand?
Everyone has a limit where they just stop refusing to put up with shit. Some people — like the megalomaniacal Animaniacs' character Brain here — will put up with his compatriot Pinky's gross incompetence for years until he snaps... as captured in the above video in all its profane glory.
The Pinky and the Brain School is a real school that is 100% named after the adorable Animaniacs cartoon duo. Located in the capital city of Nigeria, we can only imagine what the classes are like. But they all should only have one goal — to try to take over the world.
Friday's Batman: The Brave And The Bold abandoned the familiar formula of the series for something much more unexpected: A love letter to animation full of in-jokes, easter eggs, and even jabs at fanboys who don't dig the show's upbeat style. We kind of think we loved it.
Hip-shaking, pill-popping rocker Elvis Presley officially died in 1977, but he keeps popping up, at least in science fiction. Think Elvis lives? We list scifi’s explanations for what really became of the King.
