"Goodnight, everybody!", a line which Yakko usually exclaims after an innuendo is made.

"The stuff they're getting away with on kids' shows these days..."
Yakko Warner, "No Pain, No Painting"

Innuendos are oblique hints or remarks that often suggest something racy or derogatory. A lot of innuendos are hidden in episodes of the Animaniacs franchise to appeal to older audiences watching the shows. Hidden innuendos in these shows are well-known online, even to people who aren't fans of the cartoons (they're a favorite of click-bait cartoon site articles and engagement bait social media posts in particular!)

      The Warners look down.
      Yakko, Wakko & Dot: Ewww!!

Pinky and the Brain

Season 1

  • Episode 2: "Of Mouse And Man" is full of this (especially notable as this was the mice's first primetime outing).

  • Episode 22:
    • "The Maze":

    • When Cher shows where she put a tattoo of Ed Koch's name, the viewers only see the mice reacting in disgust as an unzipping sound is heard.

    • "This Old Mouse":
      • When Brain is depressed, he is seen drinking from the cage's water bottle, as if he were drowning his sorrows in alcohol. This leads to the following exchange:
        Pinky: Umm, Brain, don't you think maybe you've had enough to drink?
        Brain: Nag, nag, nag. Just leave me be!
      • During Brain's mid-life crisis montage, he is seen lying in bed with a woman asking him what he wants to do. Thankfully the two of them are fully clad.
      • Two female skiers jet by Brain and greet him in a suggestive manner.
  • Episode 38:
    • "Calvin Brain":
      • Brain: "We're off to a place women are paid huge amounts of money to look beautiful and change their clothes frequently."
        Pinky: "Charlie Sheen's house?" (This references Sheen's lewd romantic endeavors)
      • Brain: (After hitting Pinky) That surge of testosterone has given me an idea.
      • In reference to Christopher Walken's monologue from the 1977 film Annie Hall, Christopher expresses to Brain his potentially homicidal desires to get into bicycle accident and the morbid results that come with it.
      • (Pinky and Brain are transported into Gone with the Wind and are dressed as Scarlet O'Hara and Rhett Butler respectively)
        Pinky: Brain, where will we go and what will we do?
        Brain: Frankly my dear Pinky, I don't give a d-
        (The book cover closes on the mice before Brain could finish Rhett Butler's iconic quote and someone places a cover of 'Brainie the Poo' over 'Gone with the Wind'.)
        Chorus: Dinky! They're Pinky and the Poo, Poo, Poo, Poo,
        (The picture of Brainy the Poo comes to life to finish the variation of the end chorus)
        Brain: Poo!

Season 4

  • Episode 60: "Brainwashed Part Two: I Am Not a Hat":
    • Brain: The Lincoln Bedroom. This is where all the president's...friends sleep.
    • Additionally, Bill Clinton enters the bedroom to find the mice in bed together, with Pinky holding up the covers to his chest.
  • Episode 62:
    • "To Russia With Lab Mice":
      • While attempting to interrogate Mousey Galore, Brain engages in a very suggestive back-and-fourth filled with her, containing various euphemisms about a game of "cat-and-mouse." The two also make intimate physical contact with each other at several points.

Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain

Wakko's Wish

  • Skippy: Even my nuts are frozen!
    Slappy: Be careful with that last verse! (This innuendo is about male privates.)

Animaniacs (Reboot)

Season 1

    • "How to Brain Your Dragon":
      • Pinky: But you hate the arts, Brain! You always say that the Renaissance is French for bull–
        (Brain knocks Pinky away before he can finish uttering a certain swear word.)
  • Episode 4:
    • "Bun Control":
      • Dwayne LaPistol: Just came by to introduce myself and show you my buns.
        (Dwayne's butt cheeks jiggle.)
        Yakko: Goodnight, everybody!
      • Dwayne: I'm proving to the world we all have the right to bear buns!
        Yakko: Not here. This is a kid's show.
    • "Bloopf":
      • Dot: He's an influencer now!
        Wakko: I thought he was a shihtzu.
        Yakko: Goodnight, everybody!
  • Episode 6:
    • "The Cutening":
      • At one point, Wakko pulls his stomach out to form a makeshift bowl, pours a cereal labeled "Sugar Balls" into it, pulls out a straw, and starts drinking a white liquid that is ostensibly milk but he was never seen pouring in.
      • Toilet humor is present throughout "The Cutening": A pigeon poops, the Warners lick the pigeon with close-ups, and the water tower barfs (shown uncensored).
    • "Close Encounters of the Worst Kind":
      • Gabriella and Meredith consume a variant of corn dogs called "corn logs."
        Pinky: The log is the best part!
      • Much later on, Pinky shouts "SHUT THE F—RONT DOOR!"
      • And then, of course there is the Phone Number Controversy, where the "Planet Domination" phone number lead to a real-life sex hotline in this episode's earliest print on Hulu. However, this was unintentional, rather an unfortunate coincidence.
  • Episode 7:
    • "Warner She Wrote":
      • Margaret: (getting beat up by a dog) Get this little monster trucker off of me!
        Wakko: Ooh! I think he meant moth–
        Yakko: (covering Wakko's mouth) N-n-n-no! Not in front of the kids!
    • "France France Revolution":
      • Marie Antoinette: This is the problem with being rich!
        Yakko: ...your only other nickname is Dick?
    • "Gift Rapper":
      • The Rap Battle has a call-back to the "baloney in our slacks" line from the theme song, albeit in a more vulgar manner.
        Yakko: You, you’re the cure for insomniacs, less fresh than the 20-year baloney in my slacks!
      • It’s worth noting that while talking about “baloney in his slacks”, Yakko sticks his hand into his pants, its moves suggesting a certain pubescent habit.
  • Episode 9:
    • "That's Not the Issue":
      • Tuck Buckerson's logo, with the word "TUCK" emblazoned in the sky, has a thin cloud protruding from the middle of the T, suggesting a completely different word.
        Tuck: That’s the Sugar Honey Iced-Tea baby!
  • Episode 12:
    • "1001 Narfs":
      • (Pinky looks down at the sea shells, covering the sand mermaid body he's in.)
        Pinky: Now that's my kind of treasure chest!
      • Pinky: You and I shall have a talk about the birds and the bees. Now, one of them has feathers and the other has antlers but I don't remember which one's which...

Season 2

  • Episode 14:
    • "Rome Sweet Rome":
      • Nero: Help! Grab these pussy...
        Yakko: Goodnight everybody!
        Nero: ...cats!
  • Episode 16:
    • "Rug of War":
      • Yakko: (singing as William the Conqueror) It's the universe commanding me to make all England mine, so I'll bring some boats and horses and a jug or two of wine!
        • When Yakko sings this line, the animation shows William the Conqueror holding what appears to be a medieval flask, presumably filled with wine, and winking at the camera.
      • Yakko: Good old Willy had an army, was at least ten thousand strong. They marched every day in chainmail more annoying than a thong!
  • Episode 17:
    • "How To: Brain Takes Over the World":
      • Pinky: Feel free to share this video with your friends, and smash that subscribe button!
        Brain: I'm going to smash you, Pinky!
        Brain: It's not a ball pit, you block-headed boob!
        Pinky: Brain, you can't say the B-word. Kids watch my show! (nervously smiles and waves at the camera)
        Brain: Okay Pinky. The drawing is moments away! On my signal, you will adjust the remote that controls the thermostat in the lottery drawing studio to precisely 94.3 degrees Fahrenheit. The perfect temperature for ball manipulation!
        Pinky: Brain, this is Chats-togram! You can't just say anything you want!
  • Episode 21:
    • "Wakkiver Twist Part Two":
      • Dr. Scratchansniff: If it should chance to be that you have made a small mistake or need a bathroom break, tough luck! So, go out and sing and dance, and if you pee your pants, then I don't give a...
        Yakko: Goodnight everybody!
  • Episode 22:
    • "What Is That?":
      • Wakko: Let me ask you a personal question, can you hang your bang in a bang hang?
  • Episode 23:
    • "Reichenbrain Falls":
      • Brain: Come Pinky, we must launch the rocket in the next few minutes before we are to make our rendezvous.
        Pinky: Ooh, a secret rendezvous! Can it be? Is Brain in love, at last?
        Brain: With the space station, you waste of organic molecules!
        Pinky: Ah, so that's your type is it? Worldly with curves in all the right places (moves hips and giggles suggestively)
        (Flashback to Pinky glued to the wall and consuming the paste)
        Pinky: First, I started nibbling it off of my left foot. And then I found a nice tasty morsel under my left-
        Brain: (Steps in front of the camera as Pinky eats glue off of the taboo area of his body) Yes! Yes, we, we get it, Pinky.
  • Episode 24:
    • "A Brief History of History":
    • "The Prisoner's Dilemma":
      • Brain: Patience, Pinky. I am attempting to hack into the control unit of this traffic light.
        Pinky: Ooh, are we throwing a traffic light party? Well, then I shall have to wear yellow because...(he looks up at Brain for a moment) it's complicated.
        Brain: Things are getting interesting. It appears that in this game I'm not just playing with myself.
        Pinky: (In Yakko's voice) Goodnight everybody! (In his normal voice) I did it! I crossed over!
  • Episode 25:
    • "Narf Over Troubled Water":
      • Brain: With the fathers of America neutralized, our nation's youth will look to me for paternal guidance!
        Pinky: Oh good, I have some questions about my changing body.
      • The cover of Pinky's solo album (a parody of the cover to Art Garfunkel's 1978 solo album "Fate for Breakfast") has a picture of Pinky sucking on a human finger in a suggestive manner.

Season 3

  • Episode 28:
    • "Soda-pressed":
      • "Hooters" is presumably supposed to rhyme with "scooters" in the song, "Be a Kid!", as Wakko's "Or eating wings at-" line is cut-off. The "Hooters" name is used for a restaurant chain known for its wings and innuendo-theming (the name itself is a double-entendre referring to both a North American slang term for women's breasts and an owl's call).
    • "A Starbox is Born":
        • One of the towels Cindy uses for a stage curtain says "Look it's WINE o’clock!"
  • Episode 29:
    • "Planet Warner":
      • A sampling of this cartoon's background score is named "Life's a Pitch" on the Season 3 album, a play on the phrase "Life's a bitch."
    • "D.I.WHY?":
      • As the Warner siblings try to get fan art of themselves framed, Wakko points at the drawing of himself, exclaiming that he was drawn with a "huge-" something before Yakko nervously cuts him off. This may be a joke about more inappropriate fan art.
  • Episode 31:
    • "Groundmouse Day"
      • As Pinky gets into his Pennsylvania Bill costume, the following exchange between him and Brain occurs:
        Pinky: Shouldn't I be more furry?
        The Brain: We're already treading a fine line with that side of the fanbase, Pinky.
      • This is a jab at the more inappropriate sections of the furry fandoms.
  • Episode 33:
    • "All's Fair in Love and Door":
      • Pinky tells Brain that he wouldn't have judged Brain and Julia getting back together… unless he had a couple of sangrias. A sangria is an alcoholic beverage, meaning Pinky would've berated Brain while drunk.
  • Episode 34:
    • "WARnerGAMES":
      • The character of "Jackass Monkey" is a parody of Donkey Kong. His name makes use of the word "jackass" to go with the "donkey" pun. His name is repeated constantly throughout the episode, presumably so the show can get away with saying the word "ass" under the censor guidelines. This is similar to the repetition of the phrase "jawbone of an ass" in the Pinky and the Brain cartoon "A Little Off the Top."
        Wakko: You've never heard of Jackass Monkey?
  • Episode 35:
    • "How the Brain Thieved Christmas Part One":
      • The scientists at the ACME Labs Christmas party are partying hard, acting rather ditzy and some are even seen holding drinks (presumably spiked egg nog). This implies thay they are all drunk.
      • One of the lyrics for "Deck the Narfs" states "Check the stalls for hanky-panky!" The term "hanky-panky" is used to describe sexual activity, especially when considered to be somewhat improper.
