Be happy that the sets are UNCUT and are split into scenes based on the shorts. If you don't like a particular character, you can skip that one's cartoons & go on to the ones you DO like. My husband & I love being able to skip shorts we don't like & go on to stuff we DO like such as The Warners, Slappy Squirel & the Goodfeathers. The animation department at Warner Bros. has been doing a spectacular job on the Looney Tunes Golden Collection sets, Droopy, & this series. (I can't speak for every single animated series by Warner Bros. but I own these). This effort needs to be encouraged, not poo pooed by people who whine about packaging & bonus features. At least the Animaniacs sets have CONSISTENT PACKAGING, unlike the 4th Golden Collection set. Finally, be happy that Warner Bros. is putting this out UNCUT & preserving the integrity of the work.
Were we all crazy? On one hand, the show was a blatant attempt on the part of Warner Brothers to enhance its brand image - after all, the main characters were CALLED the Warner Brothers (and the Warner Sister). However, the sheer creativity of the writing managed to transcend the obvious corporate propaganda of the premise. And it was really, really, REALLY funny.
How well does it stand the test of time? I watched this DVD with some friends of mine and their two-year-old daughter. The two-year-old loved the singing, the dancing, and the fast-paced animation - and was thrilled by the fact that us grown-ups knew the words to the theme song. We also loved the singing, the dancing, the fast-paced animation, and the fact that we remembered the words to the theme song - plus, we laughed at the jokes and '90s pop-culture references. (And we took comfort in the fact that very few tattoo parlors are likely to give a two-year-old a tattoo of Wakko on any sensitive parts of her anatomy).
A good time was had by all.
The wacky Warner Brothers and the Warner Sister, as well as Doctor Scratchansniff, Slappy Squirrel, Skippy Squirrel, Rita, Runt, Buttons, Mindy, Pesto, Bobby, Squit, Randy Beaman, Chicken Boo, Katie Kaboom, Minerva Mink, and a gaggle of other original characters are gonna have you bursting out in laughs whenever you like. Like the first two volume sets, expect a ton of fun with more parodies, puns, schticks, lampoons, and songs more than you can shake a slapstick at !
Some of the funniest episodes include "The Warners and the Beanstalk", "Yes, Always" featuring Pinky and the Brain, "Wakko's Gizmo", "Woodstock Slappy" featuring Slappy Squirrel, "Baloney and Kids", "Lookit the Fuzzy Heads", "The Warners' 65th Anniversary Special", "The Mindy 500" featuring Mindy and Buttons, "Pigeon on the Roof" featuring the Goodfeathers, "Super Strong Warner Siblings", "Deduces Wild", "A Hard Day's Warners", and "The Kid in the Lid". Fun songs of the series include "I'm Cute", "Schnitzelbank", "A Quake, a Quake!", "U.N. Me", and "The Presidents Song".
If you thought those episodes (and much more) were cool, they've thrown in TWO bonus features in the set ! They are "They Can't Help It If They're Cute, They're Just Drawn That Way" (an interview with the artists and designers of the award-winning series) and "They're Totally Insane-y In Cadence with Richard Stone" (a tribute to Richard Stone, the great music composer of the series).
The Animaniacal third volume of this rabble-rousing romp of an animated TV series will be a great addition to your cartoon collections, as does the Volumes one and two sets. I certainly hope volume four is on the way eventually.
