Animaniacs coming to DVD
Apparently, I need to pay closer attention. I've been wondering if Animaniacs would ever come out on DVD, but apparently TV Shows on DVD have been all over the story for awhile now. Well, now it's official, and Animaniacs Volume One will be released on DVD on July 25. The set will include a hefty dose of 25 episodes featuring the Warners, weird dog-like creatures who were too insane for even Warner Bros. animation standards and were locked away in the studio's water tower. The show, I think, was even more of an homage to the classic Looney Tunes than its predecessor, Tiny Toons. It satirized celebrities and packed episodes with pop cultural references, just as Looney Tunes did back in the day, and with the exact same kind of aloof detachment.
Do any of you Animaniacs maniacs have some favorite moments from the show? I'm quite fond of the Imagination Song from an episode featuring a parody of purple dinosaur Barney called "Baloney." It went like this:
I is for "Imagine"
M is for "Me"
A is for the letter "A"
G is for "G"
I is for, um, "Imagine"
N is for "Nice"
E is for "Egad! I said 'Imagine' twice."
That still cracks me the heck up.
Thanks to Sean for the tip!
UPDATE: I missed that Pinky and the Brain is also coming out at the same time. Thanks, elf.
