Animaniacs

 ANIS   (DC, 1994-2000)

™ and ©1995 Warner Bros.

Warner Bros., best known for cartoon characters like Bugs Bunny and Porky Pig, introduced this series in 1995 in conjunction with a popular afternoon television show. Its stars are—you guessed it—the Warner Brothers (and a Warner sister), also known as the Animaniacs. This trio of cartoon troublemakers is known for their zany, over-the-top antics which never fail to reel in the laughs.

Although the Animaniacs are aimed squarely at the pre-teen crowd, their occasional co-stars Pinky and the Brain have a more devilishly adult sensibility. Pinky is a punked-out goofball of a mouse, but his partner, the Brain has a definite goal for life: to take over the world. To that end, he puts his incredible brain power to work to launch scheme after scheme. He’s a megalomaniac, but sort of endearing in his own way.
