Anyone? I remembered that I used to LOVE it with my whole being while replying in calichix's thread. I can't clearly remember what it was like, actually but I do remember laughing out loud everytime I see an episode of it.

I still can remember Wakko, Yakko and their annoying little sister, they were my favourites. And Pinky and Brain, of course! They were trying to take over the world. Or universe. I also remember mafia pigeons, a cat and a dog and a Hello Nurse.

There must be more. Can anyone freshen up my memory?

EDIT: Totally forgot about the theme music, sorry. It was the best thing about the show, wasn't it?

I think that the only one you missed were the squirrels. Their names were Skippy and Slappy, or something like that.

jeez, I remember all of them you named (although more or less vaguely). Pigeon Mafia ftw.

They were a little too late for me to be interested in them. I have a friend who still likes them. He's really annoying.

God yes, I loved that show.

There's nothing that can top this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uRgno5NT-yg) or this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTYLzQehFho). Except for this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQn2L3tsTQc) of course.

Nooooo, don't forget the baby and the dog who was protecting him.

Tijs, the first one is the best thing I've seen on youtube. Can't see the third one, though. :(
By the way, I need to say, I've always imagined you as Brain. Not just your appearance but your personality too. Just an extra, unnecessary information about me.

Yes, Slappy was the squirrel's name. She had a catch-phrase that I loved, but I can't remember. And she'd always slap foes with something strange (a large fish, perhaps?), hence the name.

I remember the dog was Buttons, and he'd always run away, leaving his owner, Mindy, to catch him.

I saw the show once as a young teen, and I recall thinking it more hilarious than when I was small.

Oh, and Bill Clinton played the sax in the theme:D I always like that.

Well, it sounds like a bad thing when you say that. It's not just a mouse, it's The Brain.

I had a computer game of Pinky and the Brain. Oh man, it was fun.

I liked Rita the singing cat best. Especially in their brilliant cover of Boublil & Schonberg's 'Les Miserables'

I didn't like anbyone on that show, except Pinky and the Brain, The rest of them I found annoying. Luckily, Pinky and the Brain got their own series.

This show reminded me of another show which I absolutely hated, called the Tiny Toons.

Edit: The Animaniacs theme song is now stuck in my head.

I knew someone in sixth grade that could recite the whole thing.

You have that backwards. The girl ran away and the dog tried to save her.

That was actually my least favorite one. There were never any jokes during it.

True to that, but maybe it would've helped if you knew the musicals they're covering :) Just like when the Warner Brothers (and their Warner sister Dot) were bothering Andrew LLoud Webber :D

And damn right about Buttons and Mindy!

I knew a couple of the songs and it made those ones a little better but I still couldn't shake the feeling that it was just the writers saying "fuck it, I'm tired. Let's put a Rita and Runt bit here"

I love the Animaniacs. The episodes are coming out on DVD. My sister got the first volume a few weeks ago.

I used to have much, much love for that show. Problem is, all I can remember is the opening titles "aaaaannniiimmmaaaannniiiaaaacccssss..", and they ran up a water cooling tower?

My GOD, my brain is shredded.

But I do remember Pinky & The Brain. Did that start off on Animaniacs? It was a badass cartoon that's fo' sho'. And it's still going (I think).

Yep before Pinky & the Brain sold out they were punkbuddies with the warner brothers (and the warner sister).

You got the water tower part right, they were locked in it because of overall sillyness.
