Goodfeathers is a segment on the original Animaniacs that parodied such mafia movies as Goodfellas and The Godfather.

Description

This segment features the eponymous Goodfeathers, an Italian-American trio of pigeons, Squit, Pesto, and Bobby, trying to get through life as pigeons. They are sometimes visited by their boss The Godpigeon. The characters are based on Ray Liotta, Robert De Niro, and Joe Pesci, who starred in Goodfellas

The main stars lived atop a park statue of Martin Scorsese in New York City, and spoke with distinct 'New Yawk' accents. Their rival gang is made up of sparrows. They moved to Burbank, California in the Season 4 segment "Boids on the Hood".

The Goodfeathers often parody other movies, such as West Side Story, Fiddler on the Roof, Raging Bull, and Rocky. A Dean Martin sound-alike sings their theme song to the tune of "That's Amore".

Trivia

  • A toy of the Goodfeathers on a rollerskate was given out in a promotion for Animaniacs in McDonald's Happy Meals in late 1994.
  • The Goodfeathers also appear in some other episodes.
  • While there are no Goodfeathers segments in the 2020 reboot, the Goodfeathers make an appearance in "Good Warner Hunting."
