The Animaniac Attack! Marathon was a special Animaniacs marathon that aired on July 4, 1998, on Kids' WB!. The episodes in the marathon were selected by fans in a write-in campaign to the network through a specific PO box. Additionally, one of the stipulations of the campaign was that Yakko would sing the name of a fan on-air in the vein of "Yakko's World." Throughout the marathon, the Warners would provide some commentary for some cartoons.

Gag Credits

  • Joke Credit, Schmoke Credit- What do you expect from us? We just ran a marathon!
  • This has been the Animaniacs Attack. If you’d like even more episodes of Animaniacs don’t forget to write to Jamie Kellner c/o Kids' WB and say, "We Want More Animaniacs!"


  • According to Tom Ruegger, the Animaniac Attack marathon performed strongly in the ratings. It had apparently beat out the #1 rated channel ABC for the 1998 Independence Day weekend.[1]
  • "Macadamia" was not a viewer selection, but rather one by Tom Ruegger himself. The cartoon was introduced as "PRODUCER TOM RUEGGER'S FAVORITE!"[2]
  • During the marathon's airing of the "Please Please Please Get A Life Foundation", super-fan Joanna Davidovich was named on-air as having sent in the most postcards to the station's PO box. Yakko and Wakko would remark:
    • Wakko::"How many letters do you think this guy wrote Kids WB?"
      Yakko::"Not as many as Joanna Davidovich, that's for sure!"[3]
