Theme song[]


*Yakko, Wakko and Dot:

It's time for Animaniacs

And we're zany to the max

So just sit back and relax.

You'll laugh till you collapse.

We're Animaniacs!

*Yakko and Wakko:

Come join the Warner Brothers


And the Warner Sister Dot

*Yakko, Wakko and Dot:

Just for fun, we run around the Warner movie lot.

They lock us in the tower whenever we get caught.

But we break loose and then vamoose and now you know the plot.

We're Animaniacs

Dot is cute and Yakko yaks.

Wakko packs away the snacks

While Bill Clinton plays the sax

We're Animaniacs

Meet Pinky and the Brain who want to rule the universe.

Goodfeathers flock together, Slappy whacks them with her purse.

Buttons chases Mindy, while Rita sings a verse.

The writers flipped, we have no script,

Why bother to rehearse?


We're Animaniacs

We have pay-or-play contracts

We're zany to the max

There's baloney in our slacks!

We're Animani-

Totally insane-y

Eisenhower, Mamie

Animaniacs! Those are the facts!

The Flame[]

*Flame: (yawn) Is it hot in here? I definitely feel warm. (sees mirror) Oh, my gosh, there's a fire! Fire! Fire! Fire! Aah! I'm on fire! Put it out! Put it out! Put it out! Wait a minute. I am a fire. (laughs) Imagine my embarrassment. I wish someone would tell me these things. I'm always the last to know. (moved) Hey, whoa there, fella. Put me down. What do you think you're doing? Oh, taking me on a little tour of the place? I can deal with that. Nice pad you have here. Hey, not so fast, pal. I'll fall off this thing. Slow down. Slow down! Aah! Hah. That's better. Now where are we going? Up there? Are you crazy? It's dark up there. Count me out. I'm scared of the dark. If you're going up there, go alone. Hey, what are you doing? I told you I don't wanna go. Turn around, will ya? Go back down. I don't want the darkness to get me. I'm scared of the dark. I'm scared, I'm scared, I'm scared --huh? Hey, who turned on the lights? Oh, that's right. I did. But where did the darkness go? Oh, ran down the stairs, huh? I see ya hiding down there. I guess I showed you who's boss. No stupid old darkness is going to scare me. Yeah, you're nothing but a big chicken. Ooh! Ooh. Whoa! Check out this place. Very impressive. (put down on a desk next to paper) So what are we doing here? Oh, you're a writer. Burning the midnight oil, huh? No problem. I'll keep you company. Ha ha ha! Ahh, a cool breeze. Nice. I was born to dance. Get down. (Makes shadows dance by dancing) Whoa! It's a tornado! Batten down the hatches! Hoist the mizzenmast! Shut the window! Shut it already! (Flame struggles)

(Tom Jefferson closes the window, pages fly away)

*Flame: Whew! (knocked off desk) Whoa! Mayday! Mayday! We're going down! Huh? (flames burn a paper) Uh-oh! Hey, you guys, are you crazy? Knock it off!

(Tom Jefferson pours water over the burned letter)

*Flame: It wasn't my fault, honest. It was my evil cousins who did it. But next time, be more careful, will ya? My relatives can't be trusted. Hah! O. K. Let's get back to work here. You keep on writing, and I'll keep the darkness away.

(clock chimes 1:00) (clock chimes 8:00)

Tom Jefferson: ahh! Finished.

*Flame: At last. I knew we could do it. Let's see what you wrote. "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal and that they are endowed by their creator, with certain inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." Not bad, Jefferson. So what are you going to call this?

*Tom Jefferson: The Declaration of Independence.

*John Hancock: (writes signature) Drafted July 4, 1776.

*Flame: Glad I could shed some light on the situation. Good luck with that independence thing. (yawns) as for me, I'm gonna to take the res of the day off. (yawns) Maybe you should do the same. We could call I a national holiday. (dies)

(July 4, 1776 in captions)

*Flame: I guess they took my advice.

(Bear comes back, Davy Omelette runs, being chased)

You wear a disguise to look like human guys

But you're not a man

You're a chicken Boo


(Warner Trio flies a plane, Ralph hangs on but is hit by a tree, the plane gets destroyed.)

Four Score and Seven Migraines Ago[]

*Narrator: November, 1863, and the union has been ripped asunder by two years of civil war.


*Narrator: As the country seeks to heal its wounds, a train carrying Abraham Lincoln winds its way north to the battlefield at Gettysburg. Once there, the president must make the most important speech of his career.

*Abraham: If I can just come up with an opening. (paper scrunches) Ask not what your country can do for you. nope. We have nothing to fear but fear itself. Nah! Ich bin ein gettysburger. No. People of Gettysburg, hi, I'm president Lincoln. So how about those yankees, huh? Oh, that's terrible. Oh, I give up. I can't even write a simple speech.

(knock on door)

*Abraham: Yes, what is it? Whoa!

*Warner Trio (singing):

Lincoln, Lincoln, we've been thinkin'

Would you, could you think of inkin'?

We request on our behalf.

That you give your autograph.

*Abraham (spoken) : Who are you?

*Yakko and Wakko: We're the warner bros.

*Dot: And the warner sister. I'm the cute one.

*Abraham: Is there something I can do for you?

*Yakko: Well, Abe, you mind if I call you Abe?

*Abraham: No.

*Yakko: You mind if I call you Timmy?

*Abraham: Yes.

*Yakko: How about Diane?

*Abraham: Abe will do. Now is there something you want?

*Wakko: Would you sign our people with beards autograph book?

*Abraham: I suppose there'd be no harm in that. Now, where should I sign?

*Yakko: Sign it right next to Attila the Hun, y'know, for contrast.

*Abraham: There.

*Wakko: Gee, thanks. Mr. Lincoln.

*Abraham: My pleasure. Now, run along, kids. I have work to do.

*Yakko: Oh, you've been working on the railroad?

*Abraham: Yeah. Whoa! (sees Warner Trio in his room)

*Warner Trio (singing):

He's been workin' on the railroad,

All the livelong day.

He's been workin' on the railroad

Just to pass the time away.

*Abraham: Oh, honestly, I need to be left alone. I have to come up with my address.

*Wakko: Everyone knows that. 1600 Pennsylvania avenue.

*Abraham: Not my street address. My address-- my speech I'm supposed to give at Gettysburg. I just can't seem to write it.

*Yakko: Hey, why so tense? You better cut down on the caffeine.

*Dot: And relax. We'll help you write the speech.

*Abraham: If I could just come up with a great opening.

*Yakko: Openings? No prob. We know some grand openings. Friends, romans, Gettysburgers, lend me your ears.

*Abraham: Nah.

*Wakko: You're entering another dimension.

*Dot: A dimension of sight, and of sound.

*Yakko: That sign post up ahead-- Gettysburg.

*Abraham: I don't think so.

*Yakko: Then how about this opening?


I'm lanky and frankly,

This war has got me cranky.

I'm proud to be a yankee

How ya' doin', Gettysburg?

*Abraham (spoken): I'm afraid not. It's no use. Ahh! I give up.

*Yakko: Hey, Abe, lighten up. What kind of talk is that from a man who chopped down a cherry tree.

*Dot: And never told a lie.

*Wakko: And threw a dollar across the river to buy wooden teeth?

*Abraham: That's George Washington, that was a great president. I'm afraid I'll be known for nothing.

*Yakko: Nonsense. You just stick with us, pal.

*Dot: Yeah, and one day they'll name a tunnel after you

*Wakko: They'll put your face on a penny.

*Yakko: Or take 40% off mattresses on your birthday.

*Abraham: That's as long as they don't name a savings and loan after me.

(Wakko plays drums)

*Yakko: You can't give up without a fight. We're counting on you, Abe. This speech is important. You-you have to heal this country, and bring it together because-- you might want to take notes. I'm on a roll. Because four score and seven years ago-- that's 87 years ago for those keeping score-- our fathers brought forth on this continent, uh-uh-uh-uh a new nation conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all people should have a balanced diet, including ding-dongs, and ho-hos and--

*Abraham: Ho-hos?

*Yakko: Yeah, feel free to change any of this.

*Abraham: Four score and seven years ago, our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that, all men are created equal.

*Yakko: Nice rewrite.

*Abraham: We resolve that this nation, under god, shall have a new birth of freedom and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth!
