Throwback Thursday-Animaniacs (1993-1998)

The best children’s cartoons are not always made strictly for their young audience. Some of these cartoons may appear only to appeal to kids, but there is a wink and a nudge to the adults watching.

From 1993 and 1998, Animaniacs was on the air. The premise of the show is as follows: in the 1930’s, three cartoon siblings, Yakko, Wakko and Dot Warner were locked in the tower at Warner Brothers studios. Released from the tower fifty years later, they wreak havoc on studio employees. In addition to Yakko, Wakko and Dot, the audience was treated to a host of other characters, including Pinky and The Brain.

Animaniacs is funny, charming and most of all, appeals to audiences of all ages.

I recommend it.

Flashback Friday- Pinky And Brain (1995-1998)

Cartoons can be sweet, simple and appeal to young children.

Or they can snarky, intelligent, incredibly funny and appeal to an older audience.

Pinky And The Brain (1995-1998) is thankfully included in the second category.

Pinky and the Brain are lab mice. Pinky is dumb and British. The Brain is a genius.  By day, they are silent.  By night, the Brain tries to take over the world. Pinky somehow finds a way to screw it up.

This show, even though it was a cartoon and aired with the other cartoons, was different. It was funny, smart and commented on pop culture in a way that made the viewer think.

I recommend it.
