Animaniacs Wiki

"Macadamia Nut" is a song from the Animaniacs segment "Dot - The Macadamia Nut." The cartoon is a parody of the "Macarena" music video starring Dot and the entire Animaniacs cast in backup. The parody lyrics were written by Tom Ruegger, and the cartoon was animated by Startoons.

Unlike most song parodies on the show, this one uses the actual music from the song, with only minor alterations. This is due to the fact that at the height of its popularity, Warner Records purchased the publishing rights to the song.

As of 2021 (several years after the original cartoon's episode airing), the song has recently had a popularity resurgence due to its increased usage on the music app TikTok.

Yakko Warner and Wakko Warner:
Helloooooooooooooooooooo, Nurse!
Yakko:
Uh................
Dot Warner:
I am not trying to be annoying!
Yakko and Wakko:
AIE!
Dot:
I act like a nut, so they call me Macadamia
I dance like a klutz on a show called Animania
Am I a cutie? Absolutie!
And a beauty, you can bet your patootie
Dot, Minerva and Hello Nurse:
But if you touch me, or even get near me
I'll have you arrested
Do you hear me?
Yakko and Wakko:
Dot is a nut, so they call her Macadamia
She's cracked in the head and kooky in the brain-ia
Each line in this song sounds pretty much the same-ia
Oy, Macadamia!
Ralph:
Uh.......
Yakko and Wakko:
¿Donde que vas a Nintendo Macadamia?
Hola que pasa, you grande sack o'grainia
Qui a coupé le fromage, we abstainia
Oy, Macadamia!
[Wakko belches]
Dot:
Now please don't mention my brother
The one they call Wakkorino!
[Wakko belches again]
He's always burping every hour
So I threw him out of the tower
Wakko: Whoa!
Dot:
[Dot laughs]
Now, come on! What did you want me to do? He was grossing me out!
And I'm just a cute little thing. So, don't cross me!
Yakko and Wakko:
She's cracked like a nut, so they call her Macadamia
Whenever she gets mad, you'll experience pain-ia
Cuts and bruises you will sustain-ia,
Oy, Macadamia!
Pinky:
NARF!
Yakko and Wakko:
Lava tus manos, por favor, Macadamia
The world is the goal for Pinky and the Brainia
Dot:
Otra vez on y vas the repetitive refrainia...
Yakko and Wakko:
Oy, Macadamia!
The Brain:
Yes!
Dot:
Don't hate me because I'm cute!
Yakko:
Mac M-Mac, Mac Mac, Macadamia,
Mac M-Mac, Mac Mac, Macadamia,
Mac M-Mac, Mac Mac, Macadamia,
Oy, Macadamia!
Skippy Squirrel:

Chicken Boo:

[Dot laughs again]
[Skippy laughs]
[Pinky laughs]
[Minerva, Hello Nurse, Skippy, Pinky and Dot laugh together]
Slappy Squirrel:
I don't get it, what's the joke?
Minerva, Hello Nurse, Skippy, Pinky and Dot:
Uhhhhhhhhhh...
Yakko:
Uhhhhh...
Dot:
I'm a nut who's known as Macadamia
But you can call me by my other name-ia
Dot, Hello Nurse and Minerva
Louisa Francesca Banana Fanna Bo Besca (the III)
Dot
Or just plain "Dot", the name I flirt to
But if you call me "Dottie," I'll have to hurt you
Yakko, Wakko and Dot:
Mac M-Mac, Mac Mac, Macadamia
Mac M-Mac, Mac Mac, Macadamia
Mac M-Mac, Mac Mac, Macadamia
Oy, Macadamia!
Mac M-Mac, Mac Mac, Macadamia
Mac M-Mac, Mac Mac, Macadamia
Mac M-Mac, Mac Mac, Macadamia
Oy, Macadamia
NUTS!

Translated Lyrics[]

Yakko and Wakko:
Where are you going to Nintendo Macadamia?
Hello what's up, you big sack o'grainia
Who cut the cheese, we abstained
Hey, Macadamia!
Wash your hands please, Macadamia
The world is the goal for Pinky and the Brainia
Dot:
Again on and you go the repetitive refrainia...
Hey, Macadamia!

Trivia[]

  • In the music video, Ralph T. Guard shows his stomach while tieing up his shirt.
  • Almost every member of the primary cast of Animaniacs (with the exceptions of Katie Ka-Boom, Mr. Skullhead and the Girlfeathers) appear in this segment, as well as several secondary characters like Pip and the elderly villains from Slappy Squirrel cartoons.
  • On the Volume 4 DVD set, the right audio track of this cartoon is missing (a similar problem occurs with other episodes in the set).
  • The original broadcast version of this episode had coloring errors (with The Mime, who has a real skin tone) in several frames, which were corrected for some future releases such as iTunes and DVD while it still occasionally circulated in syndication on some channels like Nickelodeon/Nicktoons (which can be seen in the gallery below). Curiously, Amazon Prime Video (as well as Hulu and Netflix when they had the streaming rights) have the original broadcast version with errors.
    • Hulu took it a step further and had an even blurrier version of the original error-filled broadcast master.
    • The color-corrected version of this episode can be found on DVD, digital outlets (such as iTunes), and (in Latin America) HBO Max.
