Rob Lammie at Mental Floss has a long but awesome article on the history of the Animaniacs. If you aren’t familiar with the show, I suggest you give it a try. You might think it’s geared towards kids (which it is to an extent), there is a lot of grownup humor in there. I always thought there was more grownup material in the show and I doubt kids even knew it was there. It was a fantastic show and it’s one of my most loved cartoon series of all time.

Be sure to play the videos embedded in the post; it really shows the genius of the writing – including the song writing like the famous “Nations of the World” song which I’ve embedded below because it’s one of my favorite bits.
