Randy Beaman a recurring segment in the original Animaniacs, starring Colin.

Description

The segments center around the titular unseen character whose adventures are recounted by his friend Colin. The stories often end up being wild, unreal, and shaggy dog stories. Each of the stories are told by Colin in front of his house, and begin with a variation of "'Kay see one time Randy Beaman..." In most of the cartoons, Colin also performs different activities which often result in visual gags. Sometimes, the stories can also involve other individuals (such as Randy Beaman's family members). After each story wraps-up, Colin tells the viewers "'Kay bye" and retreats into his home. The segments can be seen in seasons 1-3 of the original Animaniacs.

Trivia

  • This segment was based on stories series writer Deanna Oliver's son Colin Wells would recount about his own friend. Wells also was the inspiration and voice for the Colin character himself.
  • In the original version of the pop rocks short, Colin is seen running outside with his hands on his crotch, clearly indicating that he has to go to the bathroom really bad. Subsequent versions use recycled animation from the Marshmallow Pillow story. The edited version is on the DVD and most digital releases, while the original version can be found here at 2:36.
  • Wakko also tells a Randy Beaman story in the cartoon "Ups and Downs".
  • Randy has an uncle Roy.
  • Randy's brother collects scabs.
  • All of the bumpers were animated by StarToons.
