|List of Animaniacs Episodes|
This is the second episode of Animaniacs where all cartoons involve American history.Pinky and the Brain, who want to rule the universe." returns for the first time since episode 69.
To the tune of the William Tell Overture finale, the Warners sing all the Presidents leading up to Bill Clinton (Since this was made in 1994, Presidents George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump had yet to be elected.) against Monty Python-esque animation.
Don't Tread on Us
In their first Animaniacs cartoon since getting their own spin-off, Pinky and the Brain attempt to replace the Declaration of Independence with their own document declaring the Brain supreme emperor of the world.
- At the end of the toon, Brain mentions that the French are revolting, referencing the French Revolution that occurred a few years after the American Revolution ended.
The Flame Returns
The Flame watches Longfellow write the epic poem Paul Revere's Ride, while the poem is acted out both seriously and with cameos by at least one of every main story characters of the Animaniacs cast, and some commentary by the Flame.
- The Landlord's Tale was not the original title of Paul Revere's Ride. It was retitled for the collection Tales of a Wayside Inn.

Yakko, Wakko & Dot: Ciao, America!
- This is the first episode:
- to feature the copyright notice and the full disclaimers as the last slide of the credits instead of appearing on the bottom after the stinger. This also meant that Steven Spielberg's executive producer credit was moved back from the stinger to the second-to-last slide of the credits. Despite that, very few episodes after that continued to have the exec. producer credit and the copyright notice on the stinger, which afterwards the changes became permanent.
- to feature a bylineless version of the 1995 Warner Bros. Television Animation logo at the end, exclusive to the show, although it would be used in tandem with the normal version of it until episode 98.
