"Just the Same Old Heroine" is a song from the Animaniacs segment "Jokahontas." In a parody of the Disney Pocahontas song "Just Around the Riverbend", the Warners sing about just how familiar the film's scenario is, referencing movies such as The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin.

Lyrics[]

Yakko and Wakko:
You feel like this is déjà vu
A girl who thinks that she wants more
The music starts, you find that you are humming
It's okay, then it dawns on you,
You've seen this story before
Now you're stuck and you know what is coming
Just the same old heroine
Just a rerun heroine
You've seen before
Dot:
First I tuned an Ariel
Yakko and Wakko:
Again once more
Dot:
Then I rang a Belle
Yakko and Wakko:
This music score, the "Schloscar" it will win
With the same old heroine!
It worked once, why not again?
All:
We have got your seven bucks,
Why should we try something new?
We know you'll buy the video,
Your money, we will rake it in
Dot:
Our formula that's called entertainment...
All:
Just a retread heroine!

Reprise[]

Yakko:
It's amazing how much dough you can rake in!
All:
With the same old heroine!
