Up to episode lyrics


Sung to the Orpheus Overture by Jacques Offenbach.

I'm an Animaniac
Some people say I'm out of whack
You can't miss our wild new show
With my cute sis, and my bro
We all act like we're insane
Along with Pinky and The Brain
Bobby, Squit
and Pesto
Hip Hippos
Rita, Runt
Chicken Boo
Slappy too
We dance and sing and do all kinds of crazy things
Oh we're the amazing Animaniacs
We'll split your sides in half
We are the most exciting ever
So watch us cause you'll love us
We'll be on your TV
Coming up next right here on Fox!
(Alternate last line: Weekday afternoons right here on Fox!)
(2nd alternate last line: Later today right here on Fox!)
(Bravo, Bravissimo, etc. from YW+D)

Do you have a craving for a show that's really kinda wacky,
Yearning for some fun that's loony, kooky, zany, and slap-happy?
Animaniacs are just the perfect thing to hit the spot.
Join us 'cause he's Wakko, I am Yakko, and this is Dot.
We escape on Saturdays and every weekday afternoon.
We run amok along with other wild and crazy toons.
There's Pinky and the Brain, Slappy, and Chicken Boo.

We'll surprise you,
Tantalize you,
Mesmerize you,
Envigorize you!
Come join in the fun; you're really gonna have a blast,
Be sure to see each minute of us crazy Animaniacs!

        So stand and give a cheer
        For a presidential candidate that's new.
        He's the rodent that we need
        And he's here to take the lead
        For Mom and apple pie, so what do we do?
Brain : Yee-e-ess!

        Into the White House

Yakko: And Wakko's gotta eat.
YW+D : It's time to stop now
       Or your brain will rot now
       Kids' WB's fulfilled its mission
       Now it's time to end transmission
       But we've made a big decision...
Dot  : We'll be back next week.
YW+D : Ain't that sweet?
