I was shopping this weekend and saw the entire series for the Animaniacs on DVD and almost bought it. The Animaniacs was an awesome warner brothers cartoon show when I was a kid and one that everyone loved. They were funny and educational, even though they were a bit off in the way they would teach you things. Even though they made a lot of comments I didn’t get when I was a kid, here are ten of my favorite songs from the Animaniacs TV show. Feel free to share your own favorite songs from Animaniacs below in the comments section.
If you’re an American like me, you should be ashamed if you cannot name all of the presidents. Although I can’t, this song is kind of funny and is actually an awesome way to learn them in order, things about them and be able to repeat it. A couple of the things are offensive like when they make a joke about the first president to be assassinated, but at the same time none of us were around so it doesn’t effect us like JFK does, even though it probably should. This song is awesome and is actually probably the perfect song if you have kids who need to learn about the US presidents and be able to name them in order.
In this video, Yakko teaches us how to Multiply. I suck at math so anything like this should be helpful, and it was, but unfortunately also got me confused at the same time. Either way he makes a ton of sense, but I still cannot follow any of his logic or the solutions without a calculator.
I am proud to say that I can name all 5 states and most of them in alphabetical order. I learned with a song when I was younger. I am embarrassed to say that I cannot name all of the capitols of the states and which states they all belong to. Go ahead and try. I remember learning them when I was a kid, but cannot remember them all now. I know a few random ones like Bismark, but I always get messed up when you have a large city in a state and it isn’t the capital of that state. If you need a song to help you learn all 50 state capitals, try the 50 state capitals song from Animaniacs.
Now that you’ve seen they are a bit crazy, here’s their shrink singing about them being insane. The shrink episodes were always awesome. Not as good as some of the others, but he was always funny. Especially when they drove him crazy.
Speaking of driving him crazy, in this showtune about therapists, you’ll actually see how they drove him crazy. In this song he tries to split them up for individual therapy sessions. Instead of getting through to them, they drove him mad instead.
Now it’s time to go from therapy to something that can cause you to need a therapist, learning another language. Even though math drove me crazy, learning another language was harder. In this showtune you’ll see how they learn to speak another language,,,even if it isn’t real.
If you cannot name all 5 senses, 6 if you’re a demon kid from the movies, then this song will help you remember them. This is one of the most forgotten showtunes from the Animaniacs, but it is still a good one. It isn’t one of my favorites but it’s still a funny one.
Even though Love isn’t one of the senses, it still effects you and makes most of your senses react. You smell things harder, you feel tears and pain and you can also hear things when you’re happy that you wouldn’t have paid attention to before. When you get your first kiss from the person you fall in love with you feel and taste things you can only have when you’re with that person and that’s why they have a song to teach us about love.
One of the first things many of us do when we fall out of love is go and eat. Ice cream is one of the most popular foods you see people eating in movies when they first break up with someone. It’s also something I think most of us go for. That’s one of the reasons that the Animaniacs created a song about being careful what you eat.
If they haven’t covered anything else you can think of, try their song about the universe. In this song you’ll learn about everything that exists, at least in their universe. I actually forgot about this one when I was writing this post.
The animaniacs were famous for the showtunes. They have one where Yakko sings all of the songs in the English language, one about hay pennies and not being greedy and even parodies of actual showtunes. The animaniacs were one of the most popular shows and it was exciting to see that they are now selling the animaniacs dvds again.
