Animaniacs theme song

Theme Song

The Animaniacs Theme is, as its title suggests, the song that opens every episode of Animaniacs (with the exception of episodes 65 and 83). The song describes the set-up of the Yakko, Wakko, and Dot's madcap adventures and also introduces several of the other major characters on the show. The theme was composed by the late great Richard Stone and the lyrics by creator Tom Ruegger. It has 18 languages.

Lyrics

The Warners:
It's time for Animaniacs!
And we're zany to the max!
So just sit back and relax.
You'll laugh 'til you collapse.
We're Animaniacs!
Yakko and Wakko:
Come join the Warner Brothers...
Dot:
And the Warner Sister, Dot!
The Warners:
Just for fun we run
Around the Warner movie lot.
They lock us in the tower
Whenever we get caught.
But we break loose
And then vamoose
And now you know the plot.
We're Animaniacs!
Dot is cute and Yakko yaks,
Wakko packs away the snacks
While Bill Clinton plays the sax. (Season 1)
We've got wisecracks by the stacks. (Season 2)
We pay tons of income tax. (Seasons 3-5)
We're Animaniacs!
Meet Pinky and the Brain
Who want to rule the universe. (Seasons 1-2, sporadically in Seasons 3-5)
Meet Ralph and Dr. Scratchansniff,
Say hi to Hello Nurse. (Seasons 3-5)
Goodfeathers flock together,
Slappy whacks them with her purse.
Buttons chases Mindy,
While Rita sings a verse.
The writers flipped,
We have no script!
Why bother to rehearse?
All:
We're Animaniacs!
We have pay-or-play contracts!
We're zany to the max!
There's baloney in our slacks!
We're Animani-
Totally insane-y!
(Variable verse)
An-i-man-i-acs!!!!
Those are the facts!

Other versions

  • The Animaniacs game pack has its own version of the theme song with different words describing the game.
  • There is also a song on the "Yakko's World" album that is the same tune titled "Travelin' maniacs".
  • An extended version of the theme was used for episode 82 (the third season finale) with an instrumental break and montage of clips from the show. This version was reused again for episodes 84, 94, and 99. It was also released on the Animaniacs soundtrack.
  • When the show was aired in reruns on Nickelodeon and Nicktoons TV, the song was cut down to less than half of its original length, and the variable lines at the end were all replaced with the newly-made line "Nickelaney".
